We had a very enjoyable stay in Victoria. Becky and Bob are great hosts and provided us with very useful tips on sights to see (including giving detailed directions on how to find the earie in the park) and public transport. The breakfast was outstanding and we enjoyed the home made muffins to take each day. The house is wonderful,...

Altogether a very pleasant stay. Becky and Bob make good hosts, ensuring you have what you need helping out with directions/restaurants etc. The raspberry french toast was amazing and was followed by lots of delicious breakfast food. Rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated and the location was great with a very short walk to the sea and not too much...

What an introduction to B&B in Canada! The welcome was great, the house wonderful, the breakfast the best we found in three and a half weeks and the woodpecker a treat! This really is a super place to stay and although quiet and peaceful is still only a stroll from the harbour! If we visit Victoria again we will not...

We had 2 nights with Becky & Bob at the beautiful John Lewis House. We absolutely loved it, and Becky & Bob are so welcoming and helpful. Breakfast, as others have said, is an absolute treat to set you up for the day: granola, fresh fruit, yoghurt, fruit juice, Becky’s daily changing hot dish, toast and then freshly made &...

I was in Victoria for a quick two-night stay. I unfortunately did not have much time to spend at the John Lewis House, but what little time I had was wonderful. The hosts were helpful, discreet, and all-around charming. I was treated to a breakfast fit for a queen, even on the second morning, when I had to eat and...

My boyfriend and I had planned a trip to Victoria, BC back in August. We had originally booked a stay at Oceans Island Inn Garden Suites although when we arrived and attempted to check in, we were told that the hotel overbooked us and had called all over town to try to find us accommodation on what is considerably the...

We (my parents) recently stayed at John Lewis House B&B in Victoria, BC for five days. This is a lovely Heritage House, convenient to downtown and the ocean. We had a very clean and comfortable bedroom and private bath. Also there is a nice sitting room for guests to read or watch television. Excellent breakfast was provided with homemade granola,...

After all the enthusiastic comments on Trip Advisor we arrived with very high expectations indeed at the John Lewis House. – But Becky and Bob managed to surpass even that! Looking back, the 2 nights in Victoria were the best of our 3 weeks with 11 accommodations in Canada. We stayed in a lot of lovely places, but I guess...

We stayed at the John Lewis House B&B for one night in August 2012. We arrived too early from the ferry to check-in, but the owners, Becky and Bob, let us leave our car in their driveway and our luggage inside the house so that we could explore the city without worrying about parking. John Lewis House is conveniently located...
