Just walking distance from downtown and other attractions. Clean accommodations, but just beware when booking during long weekends. We happened to check in early and left our bags in our room, which hadn't yet been made. After an afternoon of exploring, we were ready to settle in, but our beds didn't have any sheets on them. As the Inn was full of guests, it took a while to get staff to supply us with bedsheets as they were attending to other issues and guest requests.

Monday morning brought about another spectacular day weather wise. While we all got a good night's rest after the late night fire of the previous evening, we packed up and cleaned up the cottage. The owners were once again very gracious and told us that we could stay for another few hours, which would've been awesome but it was time to head to Victoria to do some touring before catching the ferry back to Vancouver later in the day.
We found parking downtown ...
... and we had a four wait at the terminal - mind you there was good fish and chips there. Then a safe crossing and drive to Victoria. Now looking out for the double deckers and off to get tea Nice view from the 9th floor but personally could do with some ground level action after six days in ...
... the rocks. Many who did survive didn't have enough money to even return to their families in China, despite having been promised this as part of their contract with the railway company, yet they played a key role in the railway being built in the first place. It took until 2006 for the government to issue a formal apology to the Canadian Chinese community for the treatment of these workers both before and after the building of the line. I don't think the same has happened ...
