      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!

      Hiking the wild west coast

      ... It turned out to be a bit of a strange drive itself into the middle of nowhere but at least it was only about 45 minutes. Our first hike at the southern end of the park out to Creyke Point was relatively easy with some nice views. The water was quite calm and it all was very quiet and serene. We drove to the north end of the park to hike to Pike Point. This hike was a different story. It was about 2 km ...

      ... when we arrived. The menu was slightly out of our comfort zone and included a lot of clams and oysters.. We plumped for something a little more familiar with a chicken and a lobster dish. Both were superb. Ok so we were on a role now- hmm pudding? Triple chocolate fondu to share . Woops. Hey ho we had ate simply yesterday, can't expect miracles.
      Time for bed said Zebbadee good night folks. Moving on tomorrow.

      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 ...

      We were back on the coach early next morning and drove to a port where our Scenic Tours bus drove onto this enormous ferry for the trip across ...

      ... 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 ...
