The Villa Marco Polo Inn was the venue our daughter had chosen for her wedding. It was an idyllic setting for a small affair for immediate family and The Marco Polo was able to accommodate us all in comfortable, spacious, beautiful rooms. The setting was perfect for the wedding. The grounds were beautiful and immaculate, and Diana & Alex (our hosts) went above and beyond to make sure everything was as we had imagined. No request was too great!
The Villa is located in a quiet part of Victoria, yet close to a lot of amenities. We made full use of the cosy library and the main hall for our gatherings. And it was particularly nice for us all to have the delicious 5 course breakfast together. Everything was homemade and yummy and the presentation was excellent.
The nightly turn-down service with a chocolate on the pillow was an exquisite touch!
The Villa is perfect for that quiet get away.

We stayed in the Persia room which was beautiful. So much attention to details like the little chocolate in the glass dome that was left on the bed! The bed was so comfortable and the sheets luxurious. Breakfast was incredible with delights that just kept coming! Enjoyed the experience of being seated at the big dining table with all of the other guests. Will definitely recommend this place and hope to stay here again!

Our stay at the Villa Marco Polo was truly lovely in every way.

My wife surprised me for my birthday with a weekend getaway to Victoria and the Villa Marco Polo was her choice. It was idyllic.

We stayed in the Silk Road Suite and we absolutely loved it. A big, beautiful, king-sized bed next to the wood-burning fireplace was so warm, soft, and inviting that we never wanted to leave it. The suite had lots of room to spread out to read, write, cozy up by the fire. The bathroom contained a soaker tub with jets and was spacious with great quality toiletries. We could not have been happier with it. And we were there on a particularly rainy weekend, so the fireplace and soaker tub were well-used and greatly appreciated.

The rest of the Villa was GORGEOUS, as well. A very Italianate feel throughout. We made use of the public spaces indoors, such as the library, tea/coffee room. A nice assortment of newspapers, books, and magazines were available to us. We were greeted upon arrival by a very lovely host who served us tea and guided us through the highlights of Victoria and the Villa Marco Polo. The location of the Villa was a very pleasant 15 minute walk from Downtown and Antiques Row, which was ideal. Lots of good food in the area, too.

Our daily breakfasts were scrumptious. Fresh fruit and yogurt, beautiful egg creations, and very surprising mail courses. Every breakfast was unique and delicious.

We highly recommend this location for couples on getaways, as it is quiet and romantic place to connect and relax.

The Inn is in a beautifully converted and maintained grand old home in a quiet residential neighborhood of Victoria. It is convenient for downtown, the harbor and local tourist attractions while being far enough away to avoid the crowds and the usual tourist mess. It is also close to Oak Bay Village which has some great restaurants and a pretty water front and marina. The breakfast is amazing – I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in a B&B that presents a home prepared 4-course gourmet breakfast every morning! Our room, “Persia” overlooking the back garden was spacious and comfortable with a massive bathroom. The Villa Marco Polo isn’t inexpensive, but it’s worth every penny!!

Victoria is a charming city full of wonderful places to stay and we have tried a few – but nothing could top the Villa Marco Polo Inn, a gorgeous mansion in a central but still quiet part of the city. Each of the unique rooms has many special features and the overall ambiance is warm, elegant and extremely comfortable. Our fabulous hosts, Alex and Diana, cook a 5-course breakfast with everything made from scratch which is served in different areas of the house, depending on the number of guests in residence at the time. Being here during cold, rainy December, we appreciated the fireplaces in most of the rooms and big basket of slippers and umbrellas by the front door. Despite the weather, we enjoyed the 15 minute walk to the oceanfront so watch the waves crashing. It was a perfect weekend in every way!

Everything about this B&B is top-shelf from the decor, the grounds, and the staff, to the 4-course breakfasts. We stayed for four nights and hated to leave. Each of the rooms is beautifully decorated with a different theme. We had the Persian room which I highly recommend. The common spaces are elegant, yet comfortable and inviting, as they overlook the terraced back yard and lovely shallow pool with fountain. The hostess, Diana, was very gracious and helpful with our questions about the area. The Inn is conveniently located in a lovely neighborhood of beautiful old homes about a 3-minute drive from the center of Victoria. Last but not least, the breakfasts alone are worth the stay at this Inn. They consisted of four courses of gourmet offerings with not one item being repeated during our four-day stay. Coming home to this Inn after being “on the go” each day was like escaping to another world, that of an elegant, but at the same time a warm and welcoming, Tuscan Villa.

We stayed in the 3rd story rooms. It was romantic, private and lovely. The views were calming. The food was varied and first class. The staff were professional, friendly and helpful. The accommodations were beautiful. The guests were varied and first class. We made new friends, shared wonderful experiences and had a fantastic vacation at the Villa Marco Polo Inn!

The only bad thing about our stay at the Marco Polo Inn was it wasn’t long enough! We were here 2 nights. EVERYTHING was perfect. The staff is great. Danusia even took time out of her busy morning to go over a map with us and point out places to see and good restaurants. We met the other guests in the morning for coffee and got to chat before heading to the dining room for our delicious 4 course breakfast. It was great to visit with other guests and learn about their adventures and recommendations before heading out on our own. Our suite was large and comfortable. We highly recommend this B&B!
