    Do the rooms have bathrooms in them? Or are the bathrooms separate from the rooms? Thank you.

    Hello, I understand this B&B is in the quieter part of Victoria. I have a couple of questions. How long does it take to walk to main Victoria where the wide choice or restaurants/bars are etc? Is there an easy option of public transport to the main Victoria town on an evening and also how long does this take? We are looking to do whale watching during our stay in Victoria. Is this B&B close to these trips for booking/getting to etc? I appreciate your response. Sam :-)

    I have just taken over this B&B. So sorry nobody answered your questions. We are much quieter here than downtown. It feels like we are in the country not the city. You can take a trail beside the harbour to walk downtown... More
