“Beautiful Victorian B&B”
Elegantly restored Victorian with gorgeous rooms in the Victorian style. Our room was beautifully decorated with very comfortable queen bed and period furniture. Full breakfast was excellent and well presented - hosts were gracious and very helpful. Easy 10 minute access to Victoria Inner Harbor via car or bus. Located at the edge of Regents Park with many lovely homes and gardens. The only thing that would have made it better would be a location walkable to the harbor, but that would have been a much higher cost. We were very pleased with our choice - excellent value.
Charming hotel with a helpful and welcoming atmosphere. Staff cheerful and concerned about guests. Victorian charm with modern amenities.
“Victorian Elegance and Great Location”
We thoroughly enjoyed the spotless room and its full bath that included a hand held shower. The room featured a comfortable king canopy bed and beautiful antique pieces. We also enjoyed the room’s modern amenities such as a 50” flat screen TV, refrigerator, and free WiFi. We especially enjoyed the following: the Victorian character of the house, the grand sitting room as a common area, and the free parking within a gated secure area. The Inn’s location was ideal and provided a short 5 minute drive to Victoria’s waterfront area and to our surprise was also a great launch point for a stroll. We took a delightful short walking tour from the Inn through the upscale Regents Park neighborhood and enjoyed viewing the picturesque homes and grounds of the Lt Governor’s mansion as well as visiting the Craigdarroch castle. The Inn served two different and delicious breakfasts. The hosts are a family that provided warm and gracious hospitality, especially their daughter. They provided many valuable recommendations to enrich our visit. We fully enjoyed the Amethyst Inn and would stay there again.
“A truly wonderful Bed and Breakfast experience”
The hype was true, Amethyst Inn was truly a most satisfying bed and breakfast experience. The service was sincere and spot-on, the breakfast was three courses of YUM with hot beverages served on fine china, the hotel common areas of the hotel were sparkling clean even for a 125 year old house, our room was nice with a beautiful bathroom with a custom bathtub, and yes they have free Wi-Fi internet. Abel and Shelley were very friendly hosts and had plenty of information about Victoria and Vancouver Island. We wish them all the best!
“Wonderful Bed & Breakfast”
This B&B is in an old Victorian home and is just a wonderful experience! We stayed in the second level room at the carriage house and it was so peaceful and relaxing. The atmosphere is incredible, the grounds well-kept, and the family that oversees everything is just so pleasing and attentative to your needs. Don't miss the breakfast either as it is incredible too! Will definitely stay there again!
“Will stay at this hotel whenever in the Victory, BC.”
This bed and breakfast has the best staff I have ever encountered on a trip; very personal attention. The hotel is run by a family and they are very anxious to do whatever they can to make your stay in Victoria a happy one. The hotel itself is beautiful with beautiful period furnishings - it is clean and comfortable. The two smallest rooms are pretty small but still comfortable. The larger rooms are gorgeous!! And the breakfast!! They serve a wonderful breakfast - the food is delicious and and the presentation is beautiful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
“What a great place”
This hotel was excellent! The hospitality was warm and inviting. The accomodations were very comfortable. I'd definitely go back.
“A True Gem”
Beautiful, attentive staff, delicious breakfast.
Stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon in the Carriage House, next to the main building - very private. Beautiful stained-glass window above the bed. The complementary breakfasts were superb: each started with a tasty fruit cup - fresh fruit and berries, yoghurt, granola, and a sprig of mint; then a still-warm homemade muffin or scone; followed by an omelet or eggs benedict, deliciously prepared (eg, the omelet had cheese, sauce, fresh arparagus inside, smoked salmon on top). The staff was very courteous and helpful - made good suggestions for things to do, booked excursions, lent us a blanket to watch the fireworks at the Butchart gardens, etc. The main building is gorgeous and wonderfully restored/maintained. A perfect place to sip your complementary tea or sherry.
Although it was on a major road, the Inn was a bit off the beaten track, as the major shopping and eating areas were blocks away. Not your typical stay, as the Victorian furnishings look nice but aren't as comfortable as other furniture. The innkeepers were extremely friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was outstanding. For an experience unlike most, give it a try.
