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!
This Victoria bed and breakfast is set in a 1923 Italian Renaissance-style mansion within the Rockland district, located only 5 minutes’ drive from the Inner Harbour.
