Best B&B Experience


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


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


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


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!


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


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


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!


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


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.

... br> So it was all hands on deck with binoculars in hand, searching for any sort of movement on the water as we navigated through the Gulf Islands - several dozen small islands that lie in the Strait of Georgia. Unfortunately there were no breaching Orca's, no Humpback tails, just a few floating logs! Oh well we still had the next few weeks to try our luck again...

... we were waiting 10 mins for the 1 pm bus I went across to the taxi drivers who were waiting there to ask how much it would be for a taxi to go from our hotel to the airport and how long. The hotel had suggested the shuttle bus which costs $22 each but comes every half hour and of course picks up at other hotels so takes 3/4 hour leaving at 6:15. So for the little bit extra we booked the taxi for Saturday morning.

... the front steps. In period costume and sporting distinctly British accents they play out snippets of the history of democracy and government in BC. We also joined the free 45 minute guided tour (with a whole splodge of 55+s, their walking sticks and over stuffed backpacks) to get up close and personal with the symbolism of the province and the architectural grandeur of the precinct. Emma, our guide, was both knowledgeable and passionate about ...

"Every day is an adventure because every day is new. Every space of our lives is unknown until we live it. There's something marvellous about stepping out each morning and touching new ground every step of the day. Each moment becomes an opening for revelation."

Joyce Rupp wrote those words in Walk in a Relaxed Manner. A number of her reflections on her Camino pilgrimage resonated with me. While ...
