Hemingways By the Sea Bed and Breakfast Inn
Ranked #24 of 92 Victoria B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 October 2017

The room was very large and luxurious with all the facilities we needed with a huge four poster bed, shag-pile carpet and a balcony. The hosts were very helpful and friendly, and the food was great. The whole B&B is themed on Ernest Hemingway with pictures of him everywhere, which we thought was a bit odd. The room was quite old fashioned in its decoration but good quality. We did find it a little strange that the bathroom did not have a door which was an issue for privacy.

The room and adjacent private bathroom both had the best in bedding and clean and modern facilities in a beautiful house that is full of authentic antique decoration and furnishings. The hosts are a very intelligent and attentive couple, eager to look after your every need, without being fussy or intrusive. The breakfasts are terrific.

Room Tip: The whole house is very quiet and all the rooms seem spacious and airy.

If you're a fan of Hemingway or you're just looking for a quiet, clean bed and breakfast you'll enjoy Hemingway by the Sea. A half hour walk will take you to downtown Victoria. Charley & Patty, the owners treat you like visiting friends.

We stayed 2 nights. Pat and Charlie are gracious hosts. They greeted us at the door and were on hand for breakfast. The Key West bedroom is large and the bay window gave us a view of the water. It has a ceiling fan, which we did not need during our early September visit. Beautifully carved antique bed and side tables are reminiscent of Hemingway's home. The mattress was super comfy. The closet was roomy, and had fluffy bathrobes and a small fridge. We had plenty of hot water and thick towels for the shower. The weekday continental breakfast included fresh fruit, hot and cold cereal, yogurt, muffins, breads, coffee, tea, and juice. For dinner, we enjoyed a short walk to a local restaurant overlooking the water. From there we rode a water taxi ($6 and includes explanation of the sights) to downtown Vic to the museums, Empress Hotel, bus tour and whale watching tour ticket place, etc. In the sitting room, we enjoyed talking with the other guests.

Room Tip: There is a huge suite with private balcony overlooking the back garden.

A clean and charming room in a beautiful building in a very nice and quiet area of Victoria, walking distance by the Center of the city (about 30 minutes walking). The owners Patty and Charlie are very kind and efficient in answering every question you have.

Room Tip: Being a B&B some rooms have bathroom inside, some dont.
