      Historical Traveler Reviews Albion Manor Bed and Breakfast Victoria

      The Perfect B&B

      from

      We just returned from a four night stay at Albion Manor. As other posters have said, Don and Fernando are gracious and charming hosts, the breakfasts are amazing and will tide you over until at least mid afternoon, and the location is excellent.

      We stayed in a room with a huge canopy bed that was so comfortable. The room was tastefully furnished with antiques and had an interesting selection of books to read (nice touch!). We had our own private little balcony with wisteria growing over the top, which was just beautiful in the mornings. All in all, we found it to be the perfect B&B and if we return to Victoria, we will no doubt stay there again.

      Wonderful hosts, gourmet breakfasts, lovely accommodations

      from

      Don and Fernando were charming and delightful hosts! Don made exquisite and beautiful breakfasts each morning. I have never had anything so amazingly moist, light and airy as Don's lemon-ricotta pancakes. The heavenly pears were divine and the Spanish peaches were muy delicioso! Fernando entertained and educated us with stories about art, architecture, European history, and travel adventures. We greatly enjoyed talking and laughing together.

      We stayed in the carriage house, which gave us more room for two adults and a full grown German Shepherd Dog. It's a charming little house, complete with a kitchenette, dining area, cozy living room, bedroom and private bath. My only disappointment was that we had a shower stall and not a luscious bath tub like many of the rooms in the main house. But the extra space and privacy in the carriage house was very nice for us. We will definitely stay here again!

      The location of the b&b is within walking distance of the Coho Ferry and the Victoria Clipper docks, but is in a quiet, residential neighborhood. The Albion Manor has it all -- charming hosts, great food, lovely rooms, and a great location.

      All I can say is ...Wow !!

      from

      What can I say ?? Albion Manor is a class act on all levels. From the wonderful artwork on the walls to the antiques to the to-die-for breakfasts......Oh my !!! Albion is a wonderful mansion in the heart of Vicotria, within a few blocks of downtown and the inner harbor, and surrounded by great restaurants. The owners are first class and truly enjoy the visitors in their home. I have recommended it to my triends and I know you'll love it too !!

      Location, food, and hosts ...... wonderful visit

      from

      This was the second visit for myself and my friend to Ryan's/Albion Manor. It's location is ideal for visiting Victoria. Just a few blocks away from the Harbor on a quiet tree lined street. Perfect for a nice stroll to anywhere within the downtown area.

      Hosts Don and Fernando were friendly and informative, eager to share their art filled home with you.

      We enjoyed delicious breakfasts, especially Don's scones yum...... You did not need to eat again till later in the evening! We had a great time meeting people from all over the place and learning about their lives and hometowns. These are the unique experiences we found that you get staying at a B&B. We have no doubt we'll be back again!

      So Special!

      from

      We have stayed with Don and Fernado three visits. My husband and I love Victoria. The last visit I took my mom. She was fascinated by all the unique art around the house and learned that Fernando made most of it, while Don is quite a collector as well. The B&B is comfortable, clean and cozy. The breakfasts are wonderful as well as the conversations with their unique range of guests.

      I couldn't give them a higher recommendation!

      Enjoy your stay.

      Loved this place

      from

      There was beauty and comfort everywhere we looked at Ryan's Bed and Breakfast (renamed: The Albion Manor), hosted by the incredibly gracious Don and Fernando. Don's cooking was elegant and delicious. Fernando, a professional artist, has filled the very comfortable common rooms with his whimsical and beautiful paintings and sculptures, and no detail is spared in every room which is full of period detail, personality and did I mention comfort? Big beds, sumptuous coverings, even good books at the bedside...

      Fun and Funky

      from

      A charming place with lots of ambience, Victorian-esqu feelings. The group breakfast was fun and delicious, the place settings very elegant and British, the guests you meet inquisitive and world travelers... All combined to give you a great visit. The hosts Don and Fernando are friendly and outgoing. .. The gardens are lovely to sit in and gaze at... The B&B is located close to the wharf for sightseeing and nightlife... The rooms are all decorated and furnished artistically different. There are numerous art pieces throughout the house, most of them done by Fernando himself. He's glad to give you a tour (if you are interested!) and explain what his art represents and what it was that inspired him...

      All in all, a fantastic experience. I would definetly stay here again when I visit in the future. Thanks Don and Fernando!

      Enjoyable stay at Albion House

      from

      Our stay at the Albion House was very enjoyable. Don and Fernando were gracious hosts. The food was fabulous and the art tour was extremely entertaining. The garden was inviting and spacious. Would love to come back!

      Fine Art in a Fine Home

      from

      This was our second trip to BC and our second stay at Ryans and Darren and myself.

      The previous owners did a fine job and the B&B experience was excellent, so much so that we decided to come again! The new owners are however determined not to be outdone and making their own mark on this business.

      The house is a wonderful period building with some lovely public areas within which the owners display some wonderful art pieces (if you ask nicely I am sure that they will give you a tour!) and some equally delightful guest rooms. Conveniently located in a quiet street just a short walk from the inner harbour and parliament buildings, Ryans makes an excellent base for visit to Victoria.

      What about the Bed and the Breakfast? Well the Bed was very comfortable as was the rest of the room and the breakfast was a very enjoyable affair with nice food and friendly hosts and fellow guests.

      If you want a friendly B&B rather than a faceless hotel then I would whole heartedly recommend Ryans.

      8 Thumbs Way Up for Ryan's BB at Albion House!

      from

      This was our first B & B stay ever and now I can't wait to go back there! We were traveling with our 2 kids ages 5 and 7 and our hosts were extremely accomodating. Don made exquisite breakfasts and Fernando was a wonderful server. They were kind hosts, I just can't say enough good things about them. Our room (#8) had a very comfortable bed. I am amazed at how clean the clear glass shower doors were.

      Fernando gave a a tour of the home and all its fascinating history. They recently took over this B&B and are in the process of changing the name to Albion House or Albion Manor. They have added their own unique style of art which must to be seen with Fernando's guided tour to fully appreciate.

      The house is in an excellent location- just a couple blocks from the ferries. There is a mini-mart just a block away in case you forgot anything.

      When we plan more vacations in other cities, we will consider booking a B and B again; my concern now is that they will have a hard time matching this wonderful time we had at Ryan's B and B at Albion house!

      We are 5 days away from beginning our trip around the world.  Strange that the day I begin to blog about our trip (and our deals) also just happens to be Dad's birthday. Weird. Why's that weird? Because we couldn't be doing this trip without my inheritance which was absolutely necessary to deal with the obvious financial aspects for the type of trip we ...

      ... trip status announcements, and a gift shop that was better than the airport ones. I bought a winter hat. Have been trying to find one for a long time. Right, Ryan??? (Ryan was with me during several Winterfairs with me trying to find a hat!) We noticed that there was not a great deal of diversity on the ferry. Mostly Asians! Caucasians were very much in the minority! So, off the ferry about 10:45am, and about 30 minutes to get to Victoria. Nice drive. No room ready "at ...

Then we drove to Victoria which took 35 minutes We got a great parking spot by the center of Town. Then Tay and I took the Big Bus tour of Victoria We saw some of the following: Market Square St. Andrew’s Cathedral was dedicated on October 30th, 1892 by Bishop John Lemmens. ...
