8am and its pouring down. Off to get the hire car and head for the Ferry to Vancouver Island. Car pickup went smoothly. I was hoping for a Pontaic G6 but as they were discontinued in November last year (Pontiac shut down car production) we got a Hyundia. TomTom got us back to the Hotel and with England flags flying we headed for the Ferry. The …

Mark thought he'd seen two, but it turned out to be one on its own, which is very unusual. I felt like being on an adventure, being on the lookout and pay all my attention to it. It was tremendous and the views were dazzling. I was extremely excited that we were that lucky.

Both teams had the same rations per day – but the Norwegian team skied alongside the sledges while the British were often pulling the sledges so burning considerably more calories per day. The food was based on the food we had seen discussed at buffalo jump - dried meat often flavoured with berries, and supplemented of course with the meat from either the dogs or ponies.

Historical Traveler Reviews Abigail's Hotel Victoria
Fantastic place to spend your honeymoon
My husband surprised me with our honeymoon. The Abigail was a beautiful place with the most fabulous breakfast meals we have ever had. We stayed in the top suite and everything down to the paned windows that opened out so that we could get the top view of our surroundings. The fireplace was very intimate and having our breakfast delivered to our room was the most special way to enjoy such a lovely B&B. Since our trip to Victoria, we have stayed in very nice B&B's in Napa and in New England and nothing can top the Abigail's.
Abigail's was delightful!
We enjoyed staying at Abigail's! The Sunflower Room was very cute & comfortable. The employees were VERY courteous, friendly & helpful. Breakfast was a joy & delicous. Everything was clean & uncluttered. Internet access was a plus because my cell phone did not work in Canada & I was able to sift through important emails & contact family at home. Victoria was absolutely beautiful with flowers in full bloom & Abigail's exterior & landscaping was comparable to pictures in fairy tale books! The recommendations we received were met & more. I recommend this very pleasant "fairy tale" "hotel" & I would like to return many times!
I could not believe my eyes when I read the review calling Abigail's "over-rated", including the criticism of their breakfasts. My husband and I have stayed at this lovely B&B three times during our vists to Victoria and have nothing but good things to say about it. Abigail's is just far enough from the Inner-Harbour of Victoria to provide a pleasant walk unless you are physically unfit, and certainly close enough to downtown Victoria to make transportation unnecessary. The service at Abigail's is topnotch, pleasant and efficient but not overbearing, from the diningroom staff to housekeeping to management. The decor is unique and has a luxurious charm not found in many contemporary hotels. As for the breakfasts, well... after the fresh fruit and the baked goods right out of the oven, there is a choice of tasty and artfully presented entrees which should satisfy the most finicky appetites! Abigail's provides that feeling of being pampered which will be appreciated by anyone who recognizes classiness and style.
Cute, Cozy and Charming
Abigail's was an excellent experience! Having never stayed at a B&B style hotel before, we were pleasantly surprised how well this hotel was run. Outstanding customer service from the front desk always sets the tone upon arrival, and it was outstanding to say the least.
Charming rooms, with all of the amenities of other 5 star hotels made our stay very comfortable. Breakfast [room service in our case] was fantastic, do not miss it! Thanks again Abigail's, we will be back soon.
Indulge yourselves at Abigail's Hotel...
We have recently spent several sumptuous and luxuriant days at Abigail's Hotel. The establisment is as elegant as a fine country estate, yet cozy, and conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Victoria's Inner Harbour, Empress Hotel, Museum, and Beacon Hill Park. The staff is personal and attentive and the amenities well though out. From a superior breakfast, a relaxing Tea in the library or on the terrace, to the most comfortable of accomodations, Abigail's Hotel is truly deserving of accolades.
I was shocked, or should I say appaled by some of the horrible, untrue comments written about this exquisite and ever so quaint hotel. The food is far from being swill. A three course breakfast made by a profesional chef right infront of your eyes is pretty amazing as far as I'm concerned. I am 23 years old and this B&B made me appreciate the finer things in life, you most definately do not have to be 45 and up to enjoy this romantic getaway. The decoration was wonderful. In fact, it was a breath of fresh air to get away from the everyday modern/dull decor. The bright colors put a smile on my face. The library made me feel at home and the appetizers served everyday were just as wonderful and tasty as the breakfast. The staff was friendly; they made sure to do all they could to make my stay perfect.My room had the most comfortable four poster bed, a huge jacuzzi tub, which I enjoyed using every night, a sink for water, a fridge to keep my own food and beverages cold, a couch, tv, and much much more.I highly suggest to all...GO TO ABIGAILS! THIS PLACE IS A MUST SEE!! You will feel the comfort, be impressed by the breakfast, and will enjoy all the sites to see, which are merely 3 blocks away!I believe Abigails has been rated best B&B for 5 years now, and you will understand why when you go and experience it for yourself.
All three of my experiences at Abigail's have been fantastic. Being a local resident to the lower mainland of Vancouver and in close proximity to Victoria, I can undoubtedly express that there are few Bed and Breakfasts that are in a league with Abigail's. I've been attending an annual conference which is held in Victoria for over 8 years and only recently discovered what an attractive and pleasant B&B Abigail's is. Service is personalized and sincere, the complementary breakfast is unparalleled, and the location is nestled in a quiet and green surrounding amidst the heart of downtown Victoria. The location allows for a peaceful accommodation coupled with a proximity which allows you to escape the serenity and experience the inner harbor and Government Street by day, or all of the wonderful restaurants or performances that Victoria has to offer by night.
Three years ago, my husband and I decided to come to Abigails at the strong suggestion of our travel agent. I'd read some reviews on the B&B, saying how it was dripping with all the wonderful luxuries you would ever want out of a Bed and Breakfast. When I got there, I thought it was very cute, a lot of character... however the room's are all decorated to the taste of grandmothers and mothers teetering on the edge of being elderly. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is into cheesy/elderly floral prints, and likes to meet other retirees during the hotel's social hour. I was expecting very classic colours, not a bunch of funny looking turquoises... but the food was delicious and I could go for break fast like that anyday. I would probably go for the Laurel Pointe up returning to Victoria... The Pimp Palace over the Abigails Charming and Delightful for Seniors.
This is a great hotel. We flew a Kenmore Air float plane from Seattle to Victoria in October 03 and had a great long weekend there. We had a suite with jacuzzi tub and fireplace. The service was excellent and the room was perfect. The hotel is within walking distance of most of the downtown area or you can take a cab.
Abigail's B&B has a great location. Walking distance to the Empress and downtown VIctoria.I really liked the homemade cookie that was waiting in your room when you arrived.In fact I liked it so much that I was looking forward to it on the second day but alas....no cookie. Being that I frequent a lot of B&B's I was surprised that they didn't have water available in the rooms.Especially when there is no a/c and the outside temp was 80's. But I am sure they would provide one when asked.they did have fa fan available in the room which we had at max. Beacon hill park is walking distance and is a must see for the heron 's and the quiet beauty. I would suggest a romantic picnic or just a picnic and a book. breakfast was good. afternoon tea could use a full water pitcher& wine. Both times we had to ask for water. breakfast was good.
