Villa Marco Polo Bed and Breakfast Inn

This is my second time, I absolutely love the Villa ♥ Impressive, stunning, very comfortable. Beautiful setting, every room, every section has nice and unique details. It is very clean, I never experienced a 4 course breakfast…so easy to get spoiled~
The neighborhood is great, quiet, safe to walk around…(some friendly/wildlife can be seen from time to time)a young deer was crossing the street right in the corner of Shasta Street!!
This time I visited the Castle nearby, as well as the Government house -which is so handy to the Villa!
Diana and Alex are the most amazing hosts, they make sure you are comfy, anything required they ensure you get it, they are superb people. They do an amazing job at the Villa. I am running out of words to convey my satisfaction and I highly recommend it to you!

A beautiful setting — really quiet at night. Our room had a fireplace and oversized tub with air jets. Our stay included a multi-course breakfast each morning. I wish we had been able to spend more time enjoying the environs. Would definitely go back.

This is a lovely Victorian home with a lot of ambience. It has the old charm and the stained glass, leaded windows and woodwork are definitely a must see. It is strategically located, being a ten minute walk from the harbour, Parliament Buildings and the Royal B.C. Museum as well as close to downtown,

Unfortunately it also has a bit of Victorian mold. Although very clean, our room smelled musty and we had to keep the window open to let fresh air in (the “Victoriana Room”). The bath towels were small and thin, and there was no bathrobe as advertised. The bath was a cast footed tub encircled by a shower curtain and a small shower head. Anyway not the “luxurious” amenities you would expect for the $225+ per night.

As for the breakfasts they were small portions and a limited selection. Douglas, the host, although very polite, had only a couple of choices for breakfast that you had to preselect, and were odd choices. One was a balsamic pasta. I’m sure it was tasty, but not exactly what I would choose for a starter meal. As well, you had to ask for butter etc. if you needed more.

Douglas is also not an experienced host. He will only answer direct questions and doesn’t carry on conversations. He is helpful though, if questioned. Also he is somewhat reclusive.

We felt that we had been “cheaped” out totally and overpaid as we expected better service for the price. Unless you’re into great Victorian era ambience, I wouldn’t recommend this as a first choice.

It was one of my best friends weddings and this could not be a more perfect place. Alex and Dianna were so helpful and kind. I had lost an earring and they took the time to look and exchange information. Even going the extra mile to follow up with me the next day to see if I had found it or not. The decor and the ambience of the entire manor is an absolute fairytale and I recommend any and everyone to go if they are looking for a relaxing intimate getaway.

Our stay was wonderful. The Marco Polo inn was beautiful inside and out. Hosts Deana and Alex made our stay a very memorial one and we plan on going back to enjoy their wonderful hospitality. I would highly recommend the Marco Polo in to anyone looking to stay at a bed and breakfast in Victoria. Everything was great from the room to the food and the attention to detail from the staff. My wife and I plan on returning as soon as we can. Thank you so much for our wonderful stay.

Physically, this is a lovely old home with lots of charm and nice touches…seemingly the perfect sort of B&B to stay at. It’s in a great location, close to the central area of Victoria, but just far enough away so it’s very quiet. It was very clean and tidy. The caretaker/manager, however, while very nice and polite, really keeps to himself aside from directly responding to specific questions. Clearly he does not want to become engaged in conversation. I don’t travel to make new best friends, but it is fun to chat with locals to get their opinion about things, etc. Also, I was underwhelmed with the breakfast…lack of variety, along with specific seating times where it appeared that we were expected to be finished with breakfast and on our way within half an hour. (Seating times were 8:00, 8:30, 9:00) It felt a bit rushed, especially when on vacation and first thing in the morning. The fruit salad and omelet were very good, but there were no bread choices with the egg dish. I like having some kind of bread and, being that I was in Victoria, had hoped for scones or something. I requested a muffin, which was an option with the non-egg breakfast, and it seemed like it was a packaged one heated up in the microwave. For people who want a nice place to stay and don’t care about interacting with the proprietor, this could be a great place to stay. If you want a little more than that, including a more substantial breakfast, I’d recommend trying somewhere else.

Both the hosts and the property made this a fantastic experience. We felt welcome even before we arrived, as the hosts contacted us to gather info shortly after we made the reservation. The rooms have a lot of character, every room is different, we stayed at the penthouse, which is is spacious and has a great view. The common areas and overall character of the property are very relaxing and luxurious in an old world style. The house is located in a very nice neighborhood, walking distance to the governor’s mansion, which has a wonderful park. We also walked downtown and to the ocean side, but that’s a little further out. We had a car, parking was easy and plentiful on the very quiet street. We are definitely planning to go back.

We spent two nights here. Everything was fantastic – the breakfasts were delicious, the suites were beautiful, but most importantly our hosts were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend

We stayed there “By mistake” due to hubby’s inexperience with booking.com, but serious familiarity with Victoria, Canada. Glorious mistake! We had a ground floor king suite of antiques and fully functional tv and wifi; one’s writing table area, you know, as one expects, doesn’t one; gorgeous stained glass; lovely bedding and towels – even a rubber ducky (froggy) for the bath. Douglas is a warm and attentive host, the garden is small, surrounding the parking, but so beautiful I sent a photo home. Whose driveway has flowers like that? Wrap- around porch that would be a dream to lounge on if I had had the time. Breakfast was more than I could handle, delish baked pear, and smoked salmon scrambled eggs. There was some kind of vegetable on offer, too, but not quite my usual morning fare. We walked over to see the cruise ships sail, we walked over to Fishermans’ Wharf to see the floating homes and artisans and otters, we took a water taxi (cheat!) to get to the main side of the inner harbour, which is otherwise totally walkable unless you are a wimp like me. Walked back very easily. Tasty fish and chips two blocks away, Finest at Sea. Go early, they run out of stuff!

Took a quick trip to Victoria with my aunt and stayed at Villa Marco Polo which was a wonderful experience. We stayed in the Alexandria Room which was on the second floor. It was very clean and looked exactly as it did in the pictures. I liked the location which is a few minutes away from the city in a residential neighborhood which was very peaceful and quiet. Highlight of my stay was the five course gourmet breakfasts prepared with such TLC. The food was decadent and I really enjoyed talking to the other guests. Diana and Alex wee extremely attentive and willing to go the extra mile to help me with so many details beforehand and when I arrived. I also got a massage in my room which helped me sleep like a baby on my last day. I will definitely visit again but this time, by myself.

We liked the comfort of being in a home like setting rather than a hotel. Breakfast ready in the morning and a quiet rest in the afternoon. No kids or people running down hallways.

Our suite was beautiful, the bed was surprisingly very comfortable, and the home felt inviting and warm. Douglas is a wonderful host and makes the most amazing breakfast! His creations are delicious, well portioned, and beautifully presented. The house is tucked in a wonderful neighborhood, but walking distance to restaurants, downtown shopping, and attractions. We had a wonderful stay and would come back!

The whole experience of staying in a heritage home was the perfect way for us to spend our 25th anniversary. Douglas was a very gracious host and his breakfasts were not only delicious, but served very beautifully. Douglas’ attention to detail was impeccable from top to bottom.

Friendly host, excellent breakfast. Downstairs has lovely antiques, woodwork and stained glass. Beds were comfy, grounds were lovely.
