Historical Traveler Reviews Gazebo Bed and Breakfast Victoria

Best B&B Experience

from

My husband and I travel a lot and enjoy staying at B&Bs. The Gazebo B&B was definitely the best experience we have had in all our travels. The accomodations were beautiful, very clean and tidy, comfortable and had an excellent ambiance. We stayed three nights and all three breakfasts were delicious and well put together. The owners at The Gazebo B&B were very accomodating and helpful with directions to the activities we did and were always polite and available to answer questions. This is definitely a place we will recommend to all our friends looking for a great B&B experience.

Unique, in good taste and friendly

from

We have very much enjoyed our stay at the Gazebo. Definitely surpassed our expectations. Small B&B with a lot of character. No "cutting corners" on cheap decour, everything, including china and breakfast are top-quality. Linda and Martin were gracious hosts and helped us organize our stay by booking High Tea at the Empress (doubtful and expensive pleasure, as it turned out), made research on spa, among other things. Also, they agreed to accommodate us for just one night despite the fact that it was a three-day weekend in Canada and they could have waited for somebody to make a 2-night reservation. We will stay there next time we visit BC, no doubt.

Friendly and homely reception

from

Had a very enjoyable stay. Martin and Linda were very good hosts and made us feel almost like part of their family. Lovely surroundings and atmosphere to the house. Breakfasts were very good and a wide choice. We would love to revisit the area and would definitely like to stay there again.

We would recommend the Gazebo to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in Victoria with a good appetite first thing in the morning

Gazebo-great getaway

from

My husband surprised me with an overnight at the Gazebo for our anniversary. What a great, quiet getaway! Martin and Linda provided us with the perfect blend of privacy and friendliness on our stay. The cozy cottage is elegantly decorated and a lot of thought has been put into making your stay very comfortable. Oh, and the breakfast! Wow! A wonderfully fresh and well thought out display and menu. Everything done to perfection, and the dining room delightful to sit in. We really enjoyed every aspect of our stay and appreciated the feeling of being "away" when we were really only 10 minutes from town. Thanks Martin and Linda for everything!

Beware cancellation fee!

from

We didn't stay here but they charged us $20 for cancelling our reservation. We cancelled over 6 weeks from our visit and only 24 hours after booking. They didn't mention the cancellation fee on the phone when we booked. Most B&B's I've dealt with don't charge you if you cancel so far ahead of your dates.

I recently cancelled a return flight and was charged $30 per leg but I recognised that the airline is a business and this incurred time and costs. In our case we have to pay a higher rate to the bank for the initial and cancellation credit card transactions since no card was swiped electronically.

We aim to give our guests a wonderful B&B experience but we feel it appropriate to act as a professional business administratively too.

A charming experience we will treasure forever

from

The Gazebo Bed and Breakfast is outstanding according to any measure for a B&B.

First, Martin and Linda are great hosts, who are interesting and enjoyable to be around, but are sensitive to your privacy as well. The Camelot room, where we stayed, is simply gorgeous and so we thought we got lucky and picked the right room. Turns out all three rooms are classy and romantic, as we got to tour the other two during our stay.

We have nothing negative to say about our time at the Gazebo and would be hard pressed to believe that anyone could go there and not come away with smiles on their faces.

The absolutely fabulous Gazebo Bed and Breakfast

from

An absolutely fabulous haven on Vancouver Island! Run by delightfully helpful, genuine people who cant do enough to make your stay a memorable experience. On our fourth trip to Canada from Australia we did not hesitate when it came to making another booking at the Gazebo. The breakfasts are magic! We stayed in the Garden Cottage in luxurious surroundings in a secluded part of the gardens. And to top it off its only a few minutes drive from the Butchart Gardens. This is our idea of heaven on Vancouver Island and can highly recommend it. Gold star stuff!!

What a treat!

from

Our stay at the Gazebo Bed and Breakfast was marvelous. We found the experience very relaxing and enjoyable. Martin and Linda are very friendly and gracious hosts.

Breakfast was always a time of excellent food and interesting conversation. Our breakfast experience usually ended with a relaxing stroll through the beautiful gardens back to our private cottage that we had the good fortune of staying in. Our visit to Victoria was enhanced by Linda's and Martin's knowledge of things to see and do in the area. Their suggestions were always appreciated and sometimes a little off the beaten track... especially when it came to evening dinning! What a treat!

Great atmosphere, especially in the Camelot Room

from

We stayed at the Gazebo and had a fantastic break. Martin and Linda are onto a winning formula with this house which captures much of the mystery of the Old World. We stayed in the Camelot Room, with fascinating tapestries and gothic mirrors, all evoking the world of King Arthur and his Knights. Unlike Arthur, we did not have to put up with the lack of modern comforts. We had food fit for a king, an exceedingly comfortable bed, and a jacuzzi that Guinevere would have died for! In fact a right royal welcome is guaranteed. Gazebo is well situated, with the Butchart Gardens close by, and a short drive into downtown Victoria. For us it was the perfect location to discover this part of Vancouver Island, and we will be returning from the UK as soon as we can.

... and Soon and take the car over to the Wharf. It's a cool place and would be an awesome place to live if you could handle tourists walking up and down the pier on what I can only assume is a daily basis.

Fisherman's Wharf is a collection of permanent house boats that are way bigger than what you might think of when it comes to a house boat. Full of bright colours and eclectic decorating it's a sight to behold. My favorite part of the wharf was the seals that ...

... eases the stress but we probably would've made it regardless. The sailing was not too rocky despite the whitecaps but we did some drifting and tacking as the straits had lots of ship traffic -- two cruise ships and a freighter. All would require pilots and there would be rules around who had priority. In the end it meant we docked about 15 minutes later than the scheduled time, once the Golden ...

So I have four days left till I leave and my bags only have one thing left to get packed. I'm at the point where I just want to leave so I can start this life experience. I am going to a country I have never been to for 10 days alone. And hopefully I will fall in love with this country. I know I will. ...

... Halloween. Canadians get together, cook a turkey and drink a lot of alcohol. My friends and I decided to make a Turrducken ( a duck inside a chicken inside a turkey). Although a little burnt, it was fun and still edible. It was a great excuse to have a party and dress up to enjoy the long weekend.

-Halloween: Also my first real Halloween experience, as it's not celebrated quite as much as in Canada and the States. I was lucky enough to have two weekends ...
