Victoria B & BPosted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: It was a big, older house, very nice.
Location: Easy distance from downtown Victoria. Took a trip to a winery one day which was enjoyable. Butchart Gardens is not too far a drive.
Good location close to Victoria. Lovely room, really comfortable bed. Very good breakfast each day. I stayed for 4 days, and was happy with this accommodation.

Cozy and hospitablePosted Jul 21, 2014
This is a nice area and easy to get to. Very close to downtown. Hostess Ilona is very helpful with where to go, how to get there and where to park. Seems to really be concerned with the comfort of her guests. We were a little disappointed with the condition of our rooms... no mirror in one and when we asked for one she just told us to use the one in the hall. Bathroom is in desperate need of repair and update. Beds are very comfortable and the house is very quiet and privacy is respected. If you have trouble with stairs, this isn't the place for you. There's lots of them.

Hotel with style and a good atmospherePosted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: It was close to the water. We also liked the size of the rooms and style of the hotel. The outside and balcony were also a fantastic addition.
Cons: Nothing, it was perfect.
Location: A bus route downtown and the water taxi downtown made sightseeing easy. Since the hotel was so close to the water, we often went for walks.
We extended our stay in this hotel because we enjoyed it that much. The rooms and suites were nicely staged and arranged and included character. The owner cared for us with a lovely and versatile breakfast. We want to thank her for these excellent days and services and we would love to come back.

Ilona was a very gracious hostess and aa very good cook. She was very accommodating. Hotels.com had booked us for 2 people and not 3 as we requested. Ilona was able to accommodate us in an apt. Suite .

quaint bed and breakfastPosted Jun 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hemingway's was overall nice but not spectacular. If you are staying here, I definitely recommend having a car. I took the bus in and out of downtown that weekend and it is a decent walk walk to the and from the bus stop. The room itself was nice enough and felt like things had not been updated since the 1970's (mostly in a good way). The strangest thing was that the manager/owner kept touching my shoulders. I like my personal space and I am not sure why she kept reaching out to my shoulders in nearly every conversation. Sweet woman, just a little too much in my personal space.

Lovely B&BPosted Jun 7, 2014
Pros: The hostess Ilona is a charming lady who cannot do enough to make you feel comfortable
Cons: Some of the facilities need a bit of updating
Location: A bit of a trek in to Victoria, but we knew that before booking, it's in a nice quiet residential area and part of an unusual "English Village"
Lovely homely B&B with a warm welcome we were immediately made to feel welcome with a nice pot of tea and plenty of conversation and help to find our way around.
