We were so excited about our trip to Victoria. What a wonderful place! And Across the Harbour was the perfect place for us to stay. Zen and Sue are wonderful hosts. They provided us with an abundance of information, maps, and suggestions on what to see and great places to eat that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. Our room...

As most people have said a simply wonderful B&B, lovely location and warm and generous hosts - nothing was too much for them from the welcoming drink thru' recommending and arranging trips and restaurants to a delightful takeaway breakfast for our early departure. Can't imagine there is anywhere better to stay in Victoria.

The indoor/outdoor 2nd level breakfast sun room is incredible with food to match. The warm welcome from Sue & Zen make you feel like you're visiting the coolest relatives you wish you had. Their local tourist info really adds to your experience. The Blue Heron room was very comfortable & the view of the garden was a treat. The location...

Not much we can add to previous reviews. Zen and Sue were excellent hosts, from the welcome beer/wine to the comfortable room and delicious breakfasts. It is a 2km walk to the city along a well lit path, so easy to eat in the city without driving.Would love to stay again.

My wife and I celebrated our 14th anniversary in Victoria and our stay at "Across the Harbor" was probably the highlight of our stay. We have never been pampered like we were by Sue and Zen! They both went way over the top to see to it that we enjoyed, not only our stay at the B&B, but also the...

We stayed here for two nights and it was just great. Very welcoming and informative hosts, comfortable and clean room. Super cute breakfast sun room with fun extras like dvds, microwave popcorn, and board games. Sue's breakfasts are amazing (!) and she was even nice enough to make me vegetarian dishes when I was there. The location is outside of...

My wife, Cathy,and I stayed four nights in September, 2012, with Sue and Zen. Loved it!
