          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!

          Fabulous B&B!


          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!


          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.

          Defines Relaxation


          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 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!

Picture of myself and Marion standing on the first carriage that was used all those years ago and which is kept as a reminder of the railway and the key part it played in Duncan's history. We then headed back across the Malahat Drive and back into Langford to check on young Hannah. To make sure she was ok and see if she needed a toilet break. She didn't but both Marion and Karen did! Next up on our agenda, Karen had packed up another picnic for us to have at a ...

          Safely back on land, we thought we deserved a celebratory drink while waiting for our guys to come ashore. One drink down and no sign of them, oh well another one while we wait..... well maybe they are back ...

On display was the Natural History and Ecology of BC and a First Nation language Exhibition, which presented information on the different peoples, their location, the difference nuances in their local dialects etc. A permanent display of First Nation artefacts shows articles relating to hunting, home, ceremony, fishing, building and the impact that the first settlers had on their culture ...

We cooked a roast ...
