John Lewis House B&B
Ranked #13 of 92 Victoria B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 December 2011

The John Lewis house is a nice little B&B located in a conveniant location close to downtown/inner harbor as well as other sights and restaurants in the area. More importantly, it is the place where my wife and I were married on 11/11/11. Our hosts, Becky and Bob were helpful and accomadating and even acted as our witnesses for the ceremony. We felt honored to be the first couple to be married in their home and they made every effort to assist us throughout the entire affair. Their son Ben, who lives nearby even stopped by and took pictures for us. Needless to say, this was all unexpected and made my wife and I feel honored and special. I cannot say enough good things about the graciousness and hospitality of Becky and Bob. They made a very special day all the more so through their thoughtfulness and impeccable service.
In addition, Becky is an excellent cook and all the food was excellent. Bob's knowledge of the local eateries and accurate directions were a big help also. All in all a very wonderful B&B with lovely hosts.

The best thing about The John Lewis House are the hosts, Becky and Bob. They will do their best to help you. The breakfast is great. We felt at home. The room and bathroom is exceedingly clean. We stayed in the pink room and were the only guests at the time. The bathrooms are private but out in the hall so if there would have been more guests it would have been less comfortable, even though each room has its own bathroom. The ceiling over the bathtub is very low so that's not very comfortable. For us, the distance from downtown was a small drawback. we had good weather but if it's raining, the 10-15 minute walk to town might be a problem. But overall it was a good place to stay in.

We are normally able to stay with friends in Victoria, but this time found ourselves without accommodation. The John Lewis House filled that gap admirably. It is in a very convenient location, walking distance from Beacon Hill Park, in the interesting and historical James Bay Area. Becky and Bob were very welcoming. The bedrooms and bathrooms are small but very clean and adequate, and the rates were very economical in comparison to other Victoria lodgings. We did not need any lunches after Becky's breakfasts! We would stay there again.

We are two couples travelling together, so by booking both rooms it felt like we had a private inn to ourselves. The bedrooms are at the top of fairly steep stairs, which was not a problem for us, but might be for someone with mobility issues. The bedrooms, bathrooms and private parlour for guests are all well appointed and comfortable, but it is the friendliness of the hosts, the convenient location, and the absolutely wonderful breakfasts that make this B&B so outstanding. We stayed two nights in late May, and in retrospect I would have liked to have planned to stay there longer. The John Lewis House is excellent value, and was a highlight of our vacation.

Room Tip: Both bedrooms equally excellent

We stayed at the John Lewis House and I cant recommend this b&b enough. Our hosts were fabulous!! Me, my sister and dad went for a long weekend. There are only 2 rooms so we had the place to ourself! Beds were comfortable, breakfast was good and can't say enough about our hosts!!! Walk to town was a bit far but not bad - we did it several times a day.
