Nice B and B close to airportPosted May 8, 2016
Pros: Love the breakfast!! Full course breakfast-freshly prepared, beautifully presented and very delicious!!
Stayed two nights at this lovely B and B which we chose because it was close to airport. It is in Sydney- tiny, sleepy town that has beautiful walks along the ocean.

Skip if you have a plane to catchPosted Apr 5, 2016
Pros: Clean. Friendly inn keepers.
Cons: Definitely the take-out breakfast.
Location: Great location; easy to walk everywhere.
The location is terrific and the accommodations were good. But we had a 9:20 flight out so couldn't take part in their 2 breakfast sittings. They packed us a fairly pitiful bag breakfast given the cost for both a bed AND a breakfast. We suggest you skip this place if you can't partake of the breakfast times.

I've found my new go-to place to stay in Victoria!Posted Mar 28, 2016 on Hotels
I go to Victoria 3-4 weeks a year (kid at Univ. of Victoria). I've stayed in Victoria & Sidney. I like Sidney cuz it's a bit quieter, parking is cheaper, highway access is easy, & it's right by a beach. I LOVED the 'Beacon Inn at Sidney B&B'. I was hesitant to book it cuz I like my privacy, but tried it based on their website photos; the photos didn't lie. It's like a boutique hotel. All the privacy you want, with a sociable feel at breakfast. Loved: free wi-fi, free parking (in Victoria=$15-20/nt), free full breakfast - made for you & they can customize it for food allergies. The breakfast was so good I skipped lunch. It always had a quiche/egg dish/Croque Monsieur/French Toast main dish, juice, fresh fruit, the best yogurt I've tasted, and tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Sherry & home-baked goodies served in the living room at 5 pm (so civilized!). Use of a guest fridge, 24-hr coffee/tea available. The people who work there are very friendly & ready for a chat. The Inn itself is beautiful. It's 15 yrs old but looks like a traditional 150 yr old Inn. So it has great ambiance, AND reliable hot water! They have 9 rooms spread out over 3 floors. If the rooms aren't booked, the manager may let you tour the other rooms, and each room is different. Every room has a huge comfy bed, a puffy down comforter, Jacuzzi & stand-alone shower, wing chairs in front of a gas fireplace, and a small desk. It felt comfortably luxurious.

Very cozy, quiet neighborhood, nice breakfast. The host was very helpful in providing recommendations. Easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. I would definitely come back.
