Humboldt House Bed & Breakfast

Within walking distance to downtown. No view, but everything else is done very well. If you want to relax and take a step back in time then you will appreciate what the H.H. has to offer. Service was friendly and very well done! We would go back.
We have only stayed in the “Mikado” room. It was quiet, but there were only two other guest staying at the time. Plan to relax and don’t expect large flat screens and pools. They do have Wi-Fi, TV and Jacuzzi tubs in some rooms.

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our babymoon and we got exactly what we were looking for: relaxation. One of the main reasons we booked this B&B in particular was the jacuzzi, and it definitely did not disappoint. The house is located very close to the city center, though we took our car a lot as the weather we not so nice. After an outing it wss so nice to go back to the room and warm up with a nice soak in the tub. The Mikado Room was beautiful and we loved how quiet and private it seemed despite being on the main floor. We only briefly saw one other person in the house during our entire long-weekend stay. The drawing room had tea and cookies out which we thought was a very nice touch. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay here and would return again.

Just a 10 minute walk from downtown, the sense of quiet luxury was felt throughout our stay. The gourmet breakfasts, served to the room, were worthy of the finest restaurants. The hosts were welcoming and friendly, and the property itself lent to a strong sense of privacy. It was easy to forget anyone else was at the house at all. Looking forward to returning.

We are staying for 2 nights in The Oriental Room. The rooms are clean, spacious, king size bed & we can’t wait to get in to the giant soaker jacuzzi tub. We were greeted warmly by the Innkeeper who was a wealth of information regarding restaurants & local sights. Breakfast is served right in your room. Love this place & we will be back!

This place is located only 10 minutes walk from downtown. The hosts are super welcoming and friendly and the breakfast served to the room, was amazing! The house is pretty old and if that smell bothers you, you may want to reconsider this location; however, the rooms are pretty clean! The only downside to this place was that the Jacuzzi was unusable anytime after 6pm; the water was really cold for the Jacuzzi, probably because other rooms were most likely running their Jacuzzi around that time!

This has an excellent location, close to the harbour, a short walk to Beacon Park and in a quiet road.
Our room was quite large but the dark colours make it seem smaller. Bed was Ok but did creak rather a lot and was not as good as some of those we slept in elsewhere. We struggled to close one of the blinds and had to phone for help.
The shutters by the bath dont keep out all light but that is needed as the main problem was the steep drop into the tub and the steps to the toilet right alongside it. For those who are not so young this is a bit of a health hazard and I’d choose a different room if staying here again..
Choice of breakfast, which is filling, and they did accommodate a dietary need, although that meant only one choice available for me. The “champagne” is really a sparkling wine but good enough for my wife to order it in a restaurant later. Sherry sadly not in evidence and it would have been good to have allergen information for the cookies.

What a great B & B! Room was great. Bed was great. Double whirlpool tub was wonderful, powerful and a little tight. Host was charming. Breakfast of your choice was perfect and served in the room at the time you request! Just a knock on the door to let you know your perfect breakfast is waiting inside the portal to your room. No intrusions. Champagne and chocolate truffles to top it all. Quiet location

Humboldt House has a lot to recommend it:

A beautiful old home, well-located on a quiet street just a few minutes walk from downtown; comfortable beds; a friendly and helpful staff; ample off-street parking. Arriving guests are greeted with a glass of champaign and an excellent chocolate. Warm cookies magically appear in the library each afternoon. Breakfasts are a choice of three items, all tasty but not over-the-top rich and loaded with calories.

But there are limitations:
There’s no dining area, so breakfasts are delivered at 20 minutes intervals to each room (you sign up for a time slot the night before). This is fine for couples, but may work less well for families or groups traveling together. The bedrooms are not small, but are over-furnished to the point that they feel cramped and a bit hard to get around in. More significantly, each of our family’s rooms were “split-level”– they have two areas separated by broad steps. This is visually attractive, but coupled with dark carpeting it could result in a fall, particularly if you get up in the night. (My wife in fact took a small tumble on the two steps in our room.)

Overall, I think most visitors would quite enjoy a stay at Humboldt House if these limitations were of no concern.

From the canopy bed to the most delicious food you can imagine, Humboldt House has romance. You will even hear horse drawn carriages going up the street in front! And you are within easy walking distance of all the sights and restaurants you could desire. To see Butchart Gardens ( well worth it!!) you need to take a shuttle but there is a large lovely park near the B&B for a closer tete a tete with nature.

I struggle with this review as I would hate to have this place book up so far in advance that getting a room would be impossible; but do have to share such a wonderful experience with this B&B. I prefer B&Bs to hotels any day and Humboldt House was perfect. Charming decor with such a personal touch and delicious breakfast that would rival any of the top notch restaurants and is delivered to your room through a 2-way cupboard. A knock at the door to notify you of the breakfast delivery and from Narnia it appears! Romantic with feminine touches and old timey Victorian flare. Super nice hostess. Tea and pastries in the parlour for mid day. Easy in and out for adventures around town. Free wi-fi. Parking off-street. I think there are 6 or 7 rooms in the 2 story Victorian house. Love this place. Coming back every year and will try to stay in other rooms since they are all different from each other.

A fantastic old building that was has themed rooms. There was a nice small shared library near the entrance to relax in as well. I stayed in the Gazebo room which felt like I was in a spring garden. The breakfast was included and delivered to my room in the morning.

I can’t remember being in a hotel and being pampered like this. Although I was in Victoria on business, I would stay here again to be so rejuvenated for a day of meetings.

Hands down a great experience & location! We stayed in the Edwards room. You were given 4 options for Breakfast and it was delivered to your room. The breakfast was 5 stars🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠. It’s located right next to two large parks! Will be back! Only a 1.5 mile run to the bay! Breathtaking views and ambience.

We were met by the super friendly manager who offered us a different room if we preferred and toured us around the place. It is a lovely, quiet location walking distance to downtown. We live in Victoria but decided to stay there for our anniversary and I am so glad we picked this B and B. The food was amazing for breakfast. it is delivered hot to your room through this little door, so you can have a romantic breakfast in your bathrobes. Supplied! A two person jet tub, a small bottle of champagne and truffles on arrival. I loved it. Highly recommended.
