More than a B&B what this home has to offer is a complete aesthetic experience

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jun 16, 2016
More than a B&B what Linda's older home restored to its former warm wood glory has to offer is a compete aesthetic experience enhanced with paintings and musical serenity. Our hostess, half of an artistic couple, greeted us warmly on arrival setting the tone for a very pleasant stay. With two bedrooms, separate bathrooms, and off street parking in front of a house on a quiet residential street near the downtown area, the amenities offer value for money in its price range. But just for aesthetic reasons and the personality of our hostess we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. For us the Burchardt Gardens, the Lieutenant Governor's residence grounds and this B&B were the highlights of our Victoria visit. Bring a book or some newspapers so you can just enjoy sitting in the living room surrounded by beauty. We were never in a hurry to leave.
Date of stay: May 2016
Room Tip: Pick the bedroom with bathroom not shared.

Linda greeted us so warmly - we were 2 couples. The home Inn is simply beautiful, old world charm and Linda is a very creative lady. Our rooms were so comfortable and quiet and the breakfast really good, Her homemade scones delicious.
We would absolutely return and encourage other folks looking for a "home away from home" to come and stay at the Gaslight-Inn-Victoria

Staying at the Gaslight Inn gives that certain 'Victoria' feeling: a beautiful house filled with beautiful art and on top a most wonderful host: Linda. Couldn't think of a better place to stay in Victoria than this one!

The Gaslight-Inn is a beautiful home built in the 1930's with wood paneling and flooring, built in cupboards and more, located in a lovely area within a short walk or a quick bus ride from downtown Victoria.

Although we were only staying over for the weekend we stayed in their suite as the rate was less expense than some single rooms available in other places in the same area. The suite has a bedroom with a separate door, a full kitchen with fridge, oven, stove, microwave and toaster and a bathroom with a shower. Towels were plentiful, comfortable terrycloth robes were provided and there was a complete set of dishes and cookware, a small Brown Betty tea pot and a coffee machine. Tea bags were available on the counter. There may have been coffee provided as well but we never looked for it so don't know for sure.

It was quite lovely for a weekend stay as the fridge allowed us to buy some milk for our tea and leave it in the fridge (vs. the powered creamer provided) and would be perfect for anyone who is wishing to visit the area for a week or more as you would be able to reduce your overall costs by shopping for food and preparing at least some of your lunches and dinners.

The owner of this B&B is an artist and many of her 2D works in a variety of media are scattered throughout the home and suite, as are works by a few other artists. Her studio is out back and she offered to show us around but our short stay and planned activities precluded it. I did peek through the windows though and if you are an artist or art lover I would suggest taking her up on the offer.

The breakfast was lovely but it was of the "continental" type - fruit, cold cereal, muffins or scones, yogurt, tea, coffee and orange juice (with lovely homemade jams to go with the muffins and scones) - so if you prefer a breakfast with a hot main item and protein it may not be for you.

Overall it was quite a lovely stay in a house with a lot of character and a lovely proprietor.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review. We love talking with our guests about our home, built in 1910, and you were keen to hear the history behind the architecture. I hope your review will be helpful to other travelers as we are close to the downtown core. If you are ever here in Victoria we'd love to host you again , it was a pleasure! Best regards Linda

We will be coming back to this beautiful place, with it's comfortable room, delicious breakfast, gorgeous decor and friendly hosts. The location is great. Just a couple of km to the Galloping Goose bike & walk trail, and the downtown area. We loved it.
