... countered that natural inclination by trying to be the agent of change in my own life, embrace change as it were. Better to decide to do something different than attempt to hang onto the way things are & end up subject to it's fickle ways. Even now, I find it much easier changing the things I can than accepting what I cannot change.  So, we've rented out the house and are moving into town as we wanted to. It matters ...

... tree (yep, found that on the internet) was too good to pass up. Then a closer look at the weeping giant Sequoia just blew me away.

Just for fun I shall now recount our effort of trying to upgrade our seats for the 15 flight home to Melbourne now. It took over an hour to change and pay for an upgraded seat. (Phone Call one) Speaking to a lady from the Philippines who really seemed not to understand most ...

- Go sailing. Oak bay is renowned for its sailing parties. We were invited to a Pink Floyd dress up race/ sailing party. So much fun.

- Check out University of Victoria: the building are beautiful and there is a lot of wildlife to see running around campus such as squirrels and deer.

- Hire bikes and ride the Galloping Goose trail. In the warmer months the bushes will be full of blackberries to pick and eat. yum!

... pictures and said our we’ll miss you’s and Christa*, Jenna*, and I headed out from the wardroom and stumbled upon some loud drumming music in a kitchen off the staff mess area. We walked in and saw a bunch of the African crew dancing together and having a blast. We danced our way into the room and joined them all and they invited us to eat. They had all cooked a huge meal; it was such an awesome way to end my second cruise ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Amethyst Inn at Regents Park Victoria

    A Most Pleasant Place to Stay

    from

    Anyone looking for graceful and stately Victorian-era accomodations in a park-like setting a little way out from downtown Victoria would do well to look up the Amethyst Inn at Regents Park. New owners Abel and Shelley Cheng along with John Williams, the concierge, went out of their way to provide my wife and myself with an incredibly welcoming and memorable vacation experience. Our room in the estate's carriage house

    Amazing Feeling

    from

    Amethyst Inn Was Excellent!

    from

    We stayed 2 nights at the Amethyst Inn for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! John and the owners (Abel, Shelly and their kids) were so friendly and accommodating, making us feel welcome and at home. The Amethyst Inn is about a 25-min walk from the heart of Victoria, but they were always willing to drive us to our dinner reservations or pick us up from wherever we were. We actually liked being somewhat out of the hustle and bustle of Victoria and its tourists, and enjoyed strolling through the quaint and friendly neighborhood-it's just a few blocks from Craigdarroch Castle and the Governor's mansion.

    Inn of Happiness

    Not often you come as guest and four days later leave as family

    We love this place, would love to return.

    from

    We spent one night at the Amethyst Inn, in the Rendezvous room, to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We wished we had more time! The house is amazing inside and out. It's historical but totally modernized to accommodate totally new bathrooms. The large jacuzzi tub was wonderful.

    the room with fireplace was cozy and romantic. The staff was so helpful and friendly. They thought of everything! They helped us with ferry scheduling and even suggested the helicopter for our next trip. We all lingered after breakfast, talking and laughing. I have to say, the one negative review of this place shocks me. It sounds nothing like where we stayed. We will definitely be back some day. Thank you! from, Mark and Bess

    Romance plus

    from

    We celebrated our honeymoon at Amethsyt Inn and had a wonderful time.

    Our room was lovely and the bathroom had an enormous two person jacuzzi tub which we loved. Our room also had a fireplace. The breakfasts were really good. We have chosen our room for our first anniversary.

    The Best B&B In Victoria

    from

    We were thrilled with our visit to Amethyst Inn, its an absolutely great place to stay. The Inn is beautifully furnished and our room was wonderful. We plan to return again and again. The Inn is near all the activities and the hosts were super and arranged all of our activies for us. We even took a short drive, about half and hour, to see the salmon spawning. We love this place!

    Amethyst Inn at Regents Park is wonderful!!!!

    from

    In July my husband and I along with several friends stayed for one week at Amethyst Inn. The service was topnotch, the beds were great and I must say the antiques and furnishings outstanding. We were very comfortable. Breakfast was also very good and the menu changed each day we were there. The atmosphere was lovely and at breakfast we met some other interesting fellow travellers. Also, the hosts were helpful in every way.

    Over the years we have stayed at Abigail's Hotel several times. We wanted to stay again but they were full so they recommended Amethyst Inn. I personally feel that Amethyst Inn is much nicer and deserves to be commended.

    Thank you for a memorable stay at the Amethyst Inn

    from

    My husband and I just returned from a most enjoyable weekend at the Amethyst Inn. The historical property is beautiful and interesting, the rooms very comfortable and accommodating and the owners very knowledgeable about the area and helpful with making any arrangements you need. We had planned on staying at the Empress; however, it was booked for the Thanksgiving weekend. We stumbled across the Amethyst on the Internet, made our reservation quickly over the phone, and when we arrived we were so pleased that we ended up there. We had found a Jewell! Karl and Grace (the owners) made all of our dinner reservations and helped us decide how to best spend our days. Their suggestions were fabulous, especially their dinner recommendations. Both restaurants we tried were wonderful.The morning breakfast was lovely as well, with fresh fruit, a different coffee cake each morning and fabulous blueberry pancakes and quiche. We have traveled the world but this was a truly special experience.

    Awful Amethyst Inn B & B

    from

    This place is hyped by Canadian travel boards, but it is awful! The building is interesting, but is like a mausoleum. The management has rules everywhere, so you don't feel at all comfortable anywhere in the building. You must sign up for a shift for breakfast, but don't dare arrive a few minutes early or you could get scolded. All of the guests looked uncomfortable as we sat quietly, like good children, in the drawing room waiting to be summonsed.We were asked if anyone in our party had special dietary needs. We did. We were then told that they were just a small B & B and couldn't afford to accommodate everyone. Why ask? (My sister is allergic to milk/milk products. How hard is it to have soy milk on hand or to offer a poached egg for breakfast??) Oh, and blueberries were in season, so we were served blueberry fruit cups, blueberry crumb cake, and blueberry pancakes for breakfast.They put our credit card through 3 months before we actually arrived, although we were told providing credit card information was just to hold the rooms. They promised to help my elderly relative up 3 flights with his luggage, but didn't; one jet tub didn't work; there is no air conditioning and the upper leve gets very hot; they had no ferry info or info about good local restaurants (and seemed put out that we dared to ask.) Further, their web site advertised queen-sized bed, but we were told when we booked, that the owner was making changes and we might have them by the time we arrived.My relatives are world travelers and they ranked this place as one of the worst they'd ever been to. We're not world travelers, but know when a place is bad and this is a really bad place. If you want a nice stay in Victoria, don't stay there; you'll be sorry if you do. We paid a lot of money to stay there and got burned. Even their little dog is unfriendly.
