Historical Traveler Reviews Abbeymoore Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn Victoria
Wonderful in every way
My husband and I were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary and the Abbeymoore was perfect. The room (suite actually) was just fabulous with lots of light and space, a beautiful view of the lighthouse, a scrumptuous bed and lovely linens. The full insuite kitchen facilites would have been useful if we were to have stayed longer than our 2 nights but as it was, the generous (and delicious) breakfasts, (plus the always available pop, coffee, etc) made it unnecessary to eat anything until an early dinner! The location is great as the expansive Government House gardens are just across the street, the neighbourhood is lovely, we found tennis courts not far away and the village of Oak Bay is also handy. Ann and Ian are delighful hosts. I took a look at some of the other rooms and they too are lovely, spacious, beautifully furnished and I highly recommend the Abbeymoore!
Loved Abbeymoore, would go back in a heart beat!
Loved every minute of our stay at Abbeymoore, the only problem was that it wasn't long enough. Our hosts, Ann and Ian, were wonderful and the service and ammenities exceded our expectations.
We would defineately return to Abbeymoore and recommend it to or friends.
Perfected down to the finest detail
My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Abbeymore! Ian and Anne go above and beyond to make their guests feel at home. I challenge any other B&B to make as delicious and as unique a breakfast as Ian and Anne. With the needs of the guest in mind, they have internet access, games, books, afternoon snacks, drinks and the most current newspapers available at your disposal. No matter how early you wish to depart, they will accommodate you with a meal that will last you the whole day. On our very last day, Ian gave us a ride to the bus station even when I insisted that I call a taxi. Many other B&Bs in Victoria will pride themselves on being in downtown Victoria (on the harbor) and they will charge 1.5 to 3 times as much as The Abbeymore. The Abbeymore is a short ten-minute walk from downtown and one that takes you through the beautiful Rockland Area of Victoria. The Government House gardens are directly across the street from The Abbeymore and they make for a quiet morning or evening walk. You cannot beat the price or the experience. Most especially, I challenge you to find hosts that are as friendly and as warm as Ian and Anne.
Abbeymoore an amazing and wonderful getaway!
Abbeymoore is an incredible getaway. My wife and I were able to honeymoon there and were made to feel completely at home. Anne and Ian were excellent hosts and offered a wealth of information on things to do and see, as well as offering us coupons and discount cards for various attractions. The location of the house is perfect for anyone who wants to get away from the busy city atmosphere but still be close enough to see the sights. I would and have recommended this B&B to all of my friends and aquintances. Oh yeah, and you'll definitely love the breakfasts prepared by Ian and Anne. Simply amazing!
What a Delightful Surprise
Thank you to Anne & Ian for a lovely stay. We weren't sure what to expect as neither Dave nor myself had stayed at a B & B in Canada before. The Abbeymore was beautiful & charming. Much to our surprise & delight we were given a choice of rooms. All 5 bedrooms were bright, cheerful & quaint but we had to go for the Master Bedroom. The room was large sunny & opened on to a large deck with views of the ocean. Very romantic.
The breakfasts were delicious & filling. Anne & Ian had just returned from New Orleans so we were treated with some mouth-watering recipes as well as stories about the history of the house.
The loacation was perfect. The house is just 20 minutes away from the harbour & downtown Victoria so you can walk off those extra calories in no time.
Wonderful Hosts, Quaint room and Fabulous food!
Just returned from a one night stay at this wonderful B&B in the heart of Victoria. Ian & Anne were a delight (as was Frankie the dog). It is local to all things Victoria. The history of the home itself was very interesting, being decorated with early 1900s authenticity. The 'lilac' room was very cozy; its adjoining powder room complete with clawfoot tub and fresh flowers.
The bed was the most comfortable of any trip I can remember (goosedown comforter no less). But the biggest delight was the 3-course breakfast, served at our convenience so as not to miss the ferry ride back home. A wonderful stay at at a very reasonable price. I'm just sorry it was so short.
(P.S. Be sure to have dinner at Bravo's on the waterfront - delicious food with a creative flair - and far cheaper than its neighbors!)
Remember the Abbeymoore
The hosts at Abbeymoore are relatively new to the Bed and Breakfast scene so it seemed the best thing to do was provide some constructive criticism by pointing out aspects that could be improved. However, from the moment you walk into this 1912 manor you are made to feel completely at ease and like another member of the household. The rooms are spacious and tastefully appointed...ours featured a claw-foot tub and shower combination. The best part was the bed...VERY comfortable mattress and pillows. Nothing was taken for granted...towels were high quality, parking was quite adequate, newspapers were readily available, etc. Breakfast was a multiple course affair featuring a mouthwatering omelette, a huge croissant, juice, coffee, potatoes and a great pineapple and yogurt concoction. Ian and Anne (our hosts) were very attentive to any of our needs...including helping us find some local restaurants they recommended. Our stay was thoroughly enjoyable, and we look forward to revisiting Abbeymoore Manor.
Terrific hosts, great bed
We spent March 2004 in the penthouse suite. Great view, great bed, great hosts. Suitable for two physically fit adults (lots of stairs!) Only drawback for an extended stay: no onsite laundry facilities.
Excellent PR over the tele
Super helpful over the phone, negotiating a stay. Over the top helpful.
My husband and I recently enjoyed a 3 day stay at Abbeymoore Manor just prior to embarking on an Alaskan cruise. The new owners, Ian and Anne are natural B&B hosts even though they've only been at it a month! They recommended restaurants that were not typically tourist oriented and ensured that the tourist activities we chose were with the best operators.
The manor is simply beautiful and our room was divine (and the sheets..oh how soft !)
Breakfasts each day were a site to behold. 3 & 4 courses with such amazing dishes as a fresh dungeoness crab & goat cheese omellette. When I say fresh I mean fresh, Ian was shelling the crab at 10pm the night before. I've never had anything like it.
As if this all wasn't enough I managed to leave my purse behind when I checked out and didn't realize it until I was on the ferry to Vancouver. I desperately needed it as it contained all my ID to board the Alaskan cruise and when I called in a panic Ian assured me he'd take care of it. He immediately took my purse to the local seaplane company and had it in Vancouver before we even arrived all for a cost of $9. Thank you Ian so very much.
If we are ever back in Victoria we know where we'll be staying! Peg & Jeff

... a helpful Canadian helped us decide that we would be moving on through to Sooke (yep, and you say it "souk") instead. Sooke turned out to be lovely - a really helpful lady at the information centre and doing our usual "let's not book where to stay and see what happens" (which can drive my control-freak tendencies into the red zone sometimes) worked a charm.
