      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 then headed to a fresh fruit farm and bought some delicious veggies and headed home as the night was fast approaching! I ended up going out on a date that night with a Boy named Stephan, we went to milestone for dinner and then went back to his place for a movie and watch the amazing Spider-Man 2! Was a really cool movie and ...

      Our last day on the ship was really chill. When you looked outside all you could see was white fog; couldn't really differentiate the sky from the water. So we stayed in mostly except for when John and I watched Mama Mia on the big screen outside. But the sunshine was so bright that I had to squint that I eventually just shut my eyes, relaxed, and listened to the rest of the movie. After packing and getting ...

      ... being reunited with the handbag, and the iPhone charger bag that Mandy also noticed on the bench that they must have also taken out, and filling out lots of forms to keep them amused, we headed back to the gate.

      Our flight was delayed for 'routine maintenance' that they somehow realised needed to be done now, even though the plane had been sitting on the tarmac all night. We shouldn't complain though. It looked like they were emptying the toilets, so we thought ...

      Bruce and Sharon came to our house and picked us up for an afternoon having a look around. First we headed up the road to Mount Douglas where we drove up to the parking lot and had a look out over Victoria. The views were really cool and they were telling us how mostly in summer but there are lots of smuggling boats between Vancouver island and Seattle. It's was funny to think the States were just over there. Along the ...

      ... warning you! The Laurel Point Park near the harbour entrance now houses a modern hotel, but originally it was a First Nations Squamish burial ground. The man who bought it and cleared away all of the trees, disrespectfully throwing into the harbour or piling up and burning the remains of the ancestors, lived to regret this choice....the furniture factory he built burned to the ground one night with no apparent explanation. Not such an unusual thing with that much wood ...
