Villa Marco Polo Bed and Breakfast Inn

Location was great, quiet, green leafy street, walkable to sites and restaurants. Property was beautiful, decor was attractive and interesting, and ‘Penthouse suite’ was fabulous! Hosts were very welcoming and helpful and knowledgeable about the area, attractions, restaurants, and events. Breakfast was incredible, it’s the first time I had ‘courses’ for breakfast. 🙂 They even had complimentary drinks and wine in the library for guests!

They accommodated our food requirements cheerfully and beautifully. I suggest letting them know at least 1 day ahead of arrival if you need gluten-free or vegetarian or low carb so they can plan for your visit. Tranquil street. Gorgeous neighbourhood for walking. Tastefully furnished, character home. Friendly hosts. Perfect.

Our room was exceptional-huge, comfortable, filled with amenities that we could not have imagined such as an in-room fireplace, several sitting areas and an incredible bathroom. We have stayed in many B&Bs but Villa Marco Polo was an incredibly beautiful home in a lovely residential area. The public spaces are gorgeous and our hosts Diana and Alex were warm and welcoming and more than willing to orient us to the local area. Their restaurant suggestions were perfect as well. If we return to Victoria, we will definitely stay here. The only “downside” for a traveler unfamiliar with the island is that the main tourist sights are a drive or bus ride away. This was not a problem for us as we had a car.

We traveled to Victoria via ferry for our 30th wedding anniversary, We wanted to get acquainted with a residential neighborhood outside of the Empress-Parliament area we knew very well from previous trips. Villa Marco Polo was an exceptional place to stay — it reminded us of all the reasons why we used to stay in B and B lodgings rather than hotels. The managers, Diana and Alex, were so welcoming and informative — they gave us great tips about places to eat in both Oak Bay and downtown Victoria, information about the history of the Villa Marco Polo, the First Night celebration dowtown on New Years’ Eve, and oriented us to our location and nearby attractions. Alex even, unasked, gave us information on how to get to Saltspring Island. Our room, the Persia Room, actually was three rooms in one: the bedroom, a large windowed room with a soaking tub on a platform, and a large bathroom with a good sized shower. There was a walk in closet, with built in cabinet as well. Parking in the beautiful neighborhood was free. Also included in the room price was a 4 course gourmet breakfast that Diana cooked and Alex served in the L’Orangerie sunroom. The house also includes a beautifully-appointed library, with availability of port and teas, and a gorgeous backyard with a fountain and statuary. We were totally content and felt very well cared for.

It is a 20 – 30 minute walk to city center. Victoria city center has lots to do – but the Royal BC Museum is exceptionally good. It’s a gem.
Villa Marco Polo This B&B is expensive, and it’s totally worth it! My wife and I stayed at the Marco Polo for 2 nights, and it was probably the highlight of our Seattle / Victoria holiday. It is a truly classy hotel that pampers their guests, and makes them wish they could stay there forever. It was classy in the old world style of luxury. The B&B is in a gorgeous old home, very spacious, with a truly magnificent gardens in the rear. In fact, they frequently host weddings in the gardens. Each room has an individual style, with original artwork and a super comfortable bed. Our room, called the Alexandria, had a spacious bedroom, with a separate sitting room, and a large bathroom with a jetted tub. The rooms are unbelievably beautiful and lavishly decorated. A small selection of chocolates on the bed is a tiny example of their pampering. The staff paid attention to all of the details. Diana and Alex – they’re remarkable. Breakfast is served by the staff in the dining room, and is an elaborate affair, and is delicious. Everything about our experience at the Marco Polo was fun and enjoyable and they made us feel pampered. We felt like we were staying in some aristocratic European villa. Wow!

We came here for our honeymoon and it could not have been a better choice! The room we stayed in was big and comfortable and Diana and Alex were the most accommodating people. They always kept in contact with us and gave us the extra things we asked for and suggestions for dinner and activities! The place is beautiful and quaint, the breakfasts were impressive, and the neighborhood was a dream to walk around! Highly recommend if you want a historical place to relax!

I really enjoyed the 4 course breakfast every morning. The Inn has great common areas and spacious rooms. We rented a car so the distance to any place in Victoria didn’t matter but parking isn’t always easy in Victoria. Great stay.

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.

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.

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

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.
