    Historical Traveler Reviews Ambrosia Historic Bed & Breakfast Retreat Victoria

    Great Weekend Getaway

    from

    We escaped for a weekend get-away and were treated to a wonderful retreat at Ambrosia B&B. Wonderful room, great ammenities. Hostess was extremely helpful with locating information we were looking for.

    Four course breakfast was awesome! Definately a great place to escape to. Highly recommended.

    The Best Spot in Victoria

    from

    My husband and I had a wonderful four nights at the bed and breakfast. The location is great to walk downtown, wander through the nearby gardens and walk to the waterfront. Susan and Gary are wonderful hosts and the breakfast is the ultimate treat and a great way to start a vacation day!

    Nice room with great breakfast

    from

    It was our first time in Victoria. After staying 2 nights in the beautiful Brentwood Bay Lodge & Spa, we thought that it would be difficult to compare anyplace to it. But the Zen room in Susan's Ambrosia B&B was very impressive. On top of that, the breakfast was one of the best we've had in a B&B. The hospitality was also first rate.

    The most amazing weekend away

    from

    We went away for our anniversary, we had never stayed at a bed and breakfast, but this is and was beyond our highest expectations. This five star performance was a weekend we will never forget. The service, the food, the host, were all amazing, and more than most five star hotels.

    If you want to get away, forget your worries, and relax, turn everything off, this is where you want to be. Being right downtown, we also had the pleasure of walking everywhere we needed to.

    Thank you so much for the time, no question we will be back. We have told everyone they need to make this trip as part of any weekend they want to get away. Hope to see you much sooner than later!

    Fabulous B&B!

    from

    I'm a frequent traveler, and Ambrosia is by far the best B&B I've stayed in. Lovely rooms, great food, and incredibly helpful hosts made for a wonderful visit. Easy walking distance to downtown Victoria. We will be back.

    A Gem!

    from

    Our stay at the Ambrosia was very memorable - relaxing and warm and a real delight. The rooms are warm but refined, and you can't beat the whirlpool baths! Location is fantastic and we'd highly recommend the Ambrosia!

    Romantic Honeymoon Get Away

    from

    One of the most beautiful B and B's I have ever been to, historic yet eqipped with all the modern day amenities needed to make it a truly incredible holiday.

    Not only is the house gorgious but the Bathrooms are out this world, the Spa tubs with the bath salts where an extra special touch that made our honeymoon extra special.

    Susan Moore & Gary Baldwin were exceptional hosts and provided us with the most amazing of breakfasts.

    There is no doubt we will return again someday.

    And we would reccommend it to all our friends and family.

    One Of The Great B & B's

    from

    We spent three days at Ambrosia and had a great time as Susan and Cortney our hosts went out of their way to make sure our stay was one to remember. Besides being great Inn keepers the food was excellent. One other nice thing was the short distance to downtown so you did not have to worry about a car. Susan went out of her way to let us know the places to see as well as to where to eat. I would recommend this B & B to everyone.

    Defines Relaxation

    from

    My husband surprised me with a night here at Ambrosia for our first anniversary! What an absolute delight! We loved everything from the warm hosts to the warm tile! It was beyond my expectations...the shower is great, the bath amazing, and the bed ....you just cannot get up from it. Breakfast is gourmet and Susan surprises you with four courses even including something very sweet...yes for breakfast. Just amazing...

    You'll love this place!

    from

    My friend and I fell in love with this place, and Cliff, the innkeeper, is wonderful! Old Victorian charm, warm hospitality and an excellent location are just a few reasons why I'm going back there. There are only 3 rooms for rent, and each is beautifully decorated in authentic Victorian charm. You won't be disappointed!

    ... out of the buffets, we headed off of the ship and went through customs in Victoria! I finally got a Canadian stamp on my passport!
    Then a shuttle came and took us to a pretty nice hotel in a cute little area of Vancouver. Princess paid for our rooms, dinner and breakfast at the hotel's restaurant. This is when I felt like a true working professional on a business trip. Steph and I shared a big room ...

    ... be a wise use of time.

    Eventually departed an hour and a half late, so everybody on the plane was anxious. "Don't worry" we were told. "There's 50 of you with connections this morning." So that made it all ok. It's much better than just 2 people missing their connections.

    We were all organised on arrival to hot foot it off the plane and run for our connection, but when it came to disembark, my bag had gone out of the overhead locker. "We'll look ...

    ... to Mount Douglas is where everybody has left there Halloween pumpkins, it was cool to see, like a pumpkin gravesite. Then we drove to where Bruce and Sharon use to live and took a walk to another lookout on Tyndall?? It was an overcast day, but at least not raining!! Next we went for a drive and stopped at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club where we saw the local Seals that live in the Harbor and people can buy fish to feed them ...

    ... apart from the fact that his own private house, a long way from the factory, also burnt down that night, at exactly the same time! He decided he was better off without the land, and put it up for sale, however, it took him 15 years to sell it, as many believed it to be cursed. The man who eventually bought it thought he'd solve the problem of fire risk by installing the first sprinkler system in that part of the world. That had the problem of fire solved...but mysterious ...
