... not amazing floating houses here - they seem to want to outdo each other in decoration!
Walked to Chinatown and around the general area - motor home park for your benefit Marg.
... 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 ...

delight and wonder.
The captain’s words. This was an “exceptional” trip. It certainly felt like it.
We arrived back to find a night market had been set up on
the harbour. In honour of our trip, I am now the proud owner of a new charm

Not to worry, we found lots to entertain us in beautiful Victoria.
I truly enjoyed meandering through the Craigdarroch Castle and reading about the family's history. Pretty interesting. Definitely a must see if you ever make it that way north.
OK so I should preface the rest of my entries with the following. I did not major in english & journal writing when I went to university. I am prone to a run on sentence or two and thank God for spell check! I just thought that it might be fun for friends and family to follow along on our adventure as we explore and a neat way for me to capture our memories and thoughts. . I may even persuade the boys and Richard to add a few words here and there. Yikes - ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Trutch Manor Tourist Suites Victoria
A slice of heaven!
My husband and I stayed at Trutch Manor for three days in April. The hosts Les and Marilyn Tipton are absolutely superb in every respect- very welcoming and very knowledgeable about Victoria and anything you need to know to make your visit terrific. Marilyn prepares breakfasts that are a feast for the eyes and the stomach! The Manor is beautifully appointed and so clean; it is located in a wonderful neighborhood within walking distance to downtown, local eateries and the ocean. This is our second stay at Trutch Manor and we will no doubt be staying there again in the future. Their website is wonderful and very easy to navigate and the rates are very reasonable.
We just stayed at Trutch Manor for the second time as we appreciated this B & B so much during our first stay there two years ago. We have been at others but there was no need to look elsewhere after the hospitality at Trutch Manor. The rooms are impeccably clean, very comfortable, stylishly decorated wtih antiques yet very welcoming. The attention to detail extends to their gourmet breakfasts - Delicious! every day's offering is different and all you need for lunch is a little something tucked away in the in-suite kitchenettes. Or you could work off the breakfast with a pleasant walk to downtown Victoria or the shops, pubs or lovely parks immediately in the area then relax in their lovely garden and patio. The owners care for their guests in every aspect even extending to dinner and pub suggestions, to directions and sight-seeing. We can't think of anything that could improve this B & B and we look forward to staying here again in the fall and every year for our now at least annual visits to Victoria to visit family.

Great B&B, perfect for Victoria
We had a wonderful stay at the Trutch Manor. The owners are great fun, and the rooms/suites are perfect for Victoria. My girlfriend and I cooked some meals in the suite, and enjoyed the superb breakfast each morning. The B&B is located close to everything, and a car is not really needed unless you want to go out of town to explore. Enjoy your stay.
Terrific Trutch Manor
The rooms in the manor are homey, clean and well decorated with collectibles and treasures personally selected by the hosts over the years. It is close to downtown, within walking distance of many of the local attractions, parks and the ocean. The hosts are friendly and accommodating and entertain with stories from their many years in the business while guests are having one of Marilyns incredible breakfasts that will keep you satisfied until evening. A stay at this B & B will keep you coming back time after time.
A superb b and b
We stayed for three nights in early August and simply had the best time at Trutch Manor. Les and Marilyn were superb hosts and gave many helpful hints to explore the city. The manor was a lovely old home in a great location and we were able to walk to many of the things we wanted to see. The rooms were clean and comfy and the breakfasts were out of this world. We meet many people who were return guests and after staying at the manor we now know why . Thanks Les and Marilyn for a memorable stay in Victoria.
Simply the Best
The accommodation highlight of our touring holiday around Alberta, BC and Vancouver Island. Trutch Manor is a lovely old period property, part of the rich recent history of this wonderful city. Our suite was large, characterful and perfectly equipped for a long and comfortable stay.
The hosts, Les and Marilyn, simply could not make their guests any more welcome! Need advice on the city, local attractions, whale-watching, restaurants, bars? Ask Les, he's only too happy to spend as much time as you need going over it. Breakfasts are both a social event and a gourmet treat. Forget lunch - you won't need it.
This is how a good B&B should be. Stay at Trutch Manor, you won't be disappointed and the value for money is outstanding!
Home away from home
We stayed here for 4 days on our honeymoon. Les was incredibly helpful with restaurant recommendations, must-see's, ect. Breakfasts are wonderful. I have stayed in many B&Bs and this is one of the best!
You can not do better than to stay at Trutch Manor when in Victoria
I can't tell you how much we enjoy staying at Trutch Manor.
We come to Victoria about once a month in the summer and now always stay at Trutch. The heritage home (1912 I think) has been completly restored. Every room is a suite filled with wonderful period antiuqes. Marilyn & Les used to own a restaurant and do they ever know how to cook. Breakfasts are the best we've ever had in a B&B and we've stayed in them all over the world. Even if you stay a month they promise never to serve you the same breakfast twice.
If you're looking for a comfortable, quiet place to stay in a beautiful home in an elegant old Victoria neighborhood you won't be dissapointed if you select Trutch Manor.
I recently had the pleasure of staying for four nights at the Trutch Manor Tourist Suites. If you are looking for a small apartment type of accomodation rather than just a hotel room, this Inn may be exactly what you are looking for. Each has a living room area, kitchen, bath, and bedroom. The Parlour Suite which takes up the front of the house on the first floor was my suite of choice as it is very large,bright, and is wonderfully equipped including a working (and used) fireplace, and furnished with an eclectic collection of antiques. Leaded windows overlooked the garden.
