... in a row on the Wednesdays, and they already went twice. They actually wanted some parents to volunteer, but there were none. So they figured we were available. So we get to go for free!
So yesterday I went with them on the bus (Marloes was feeling ill unfortunately), up to Mount Washington. At first I had to practise how to fall down and get up again. This was really uneasy, but finally I got up and we went down on a ...
... They said other visitors have said the same.
The early displays in particular were really enjoyable. There were a number showing special historical events, especially battles. There was one showing a devastated town in Germany in 1945 as well as a Pioneer villages and some Civil War scenes. The highlight was a huge display representing the Trans Canada railway. It had displays representing important centres from Vancouver through the Hope area and on to Toronto and then ...
... with french fries. They were great. We also got a piece of fish with another restaurant. They were nice enough to include some french fries even though I did not order them.
Oh yes, while we were at the Wharf, there were some seals swimming around the docks. They were looking for fish. Anwyas, one couple bought 6 fish for $5 and fed the seals (you could buy 1 fish for $1 or 6 fish for $5). It was fun watching the couple feed the seals - the seals ...
... of the drizzly weather the chinook salmon were likely to have moved into the harbour and this is what the resident orca were chasing. We signed up for the 3.30pm 4 hour tour which left us with just over two hours more of cycling. Even more time limited than before,we sped off on our bikes leaving my poor parents in our dust as we finished our bike tour of Victoria. The strong likelihood of seeing orcas sent our adrenaline racing which helped boost us up some ...
... on the top deck. The ferry trip lasted 1.5 hours before we got back on the bus and continued onto Victoria by land. This place is BEAUTIFUL!!! Well all the areas west of our hostel are anyway. There are flowers everywhere you look and so much going on. The streets are clean, trees shaped as whales and dragons, craft stores, heaps of comic book stores... But mostly... So many candy shops!!! There are still people everywhere, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ambrosia Historic Bed & Breakfast Retreat Victoria
Great Weekend Getaway
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
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
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
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!

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.
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
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
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.
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!
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!
