My room was beautiful. The parlor/library was a wonderful place to read and meet new people. The host, David, was knowledgeable about bus routes and tours. He is also a fantastic chef and chocolatier. His homemade truffles were exquisite! The breakfasts were served in my room. I had everything from seafood crepes to eggs Benedict. I was treated like a princess. I will remember this experience forever!

The convenient location to downtown Victoria was initially why I selected this hotel. But the 2-person jetted bathtub, fireplace in each room, and breakfast brought to you in the privacy of your room through an enclosed box via a very heavy picnic basket made my husband feel more pampered than he has ever been.

We were welcomed with sherry and treats and shown our theme related room. We had a large jucuzzi tub and a working fireplace, laid and ready to light. There was chilled sparkling wine in the frig and a wonderful chocolate truffle. We were given a restaurant recommendation that was very good (Petrocellies?). I was concerned with the traffic noise in the room but it was zero soon after 9 p.m. Very quiet and comfortable. Super clean. And then there was breakfast! No sitting in a room with strangers eating 18" away! No! Our breakfast arrived at the room at the appointed time in a large basket. It was extremely well packed. I had eggs benedict, my husband smoked salmon and shrimp crepes. Included was croissants, fruit, coffee, tea, and all was outstanding! Great place period, and definitely great for the price. Walking distance to all of downtown. Super location.

We were on our honeymoon in Victoria and were looking for that special place that would make our honeymoon even more special. Humboldt House meet, and exceeded, our expectations. The celebration suite was on the main floor, but back at the back of the house. The room was spacious and well furnished. There is a soaking, jetted tub. One of the best features was the breakfast. The food and the choices of the meals were fantastic. They have a system that allows you to choose the time for your breakfast and they serve it in the room through a wall unit that allows you to enjoy your meal in privacy. This was a wonderful place for our honeymoon, or any romantic get away. David was a great host and was helpful when we needed him, and gave us our space when we wanted it.

Lovely B&B in great location close to City centre. The owners were very helpful but also cultivated your privacy. Breakfasts were amazing and delivered to your room in a basket. Crepes and eggs benedict were superb. On arrival my husband & I were shown our room. On the table were 2 glasses each with a home made truffle. A bottle of sparkling wine was waiting in the room size refrig. A CD/mp3 player complete with relaxing CDs added to the rooms ambiance. Too warm to use the fireplace in the room, but nice option Easy walking to the harbor, Parliament, shopping and restaurants. Weather was glorious sunny spring.

This B&B is in very good condition, wall paper and paint all fresh and spiffy. The host was most pleasant and the food was terrific. The real fire place with the lovely Xmas decor on the mantle was charming. Because it was our anniversary we were looking for something exceptional and were willing to pay for it. But alas this didn't quite turn out as we had hoped.Having read other reviews we knew in advance that one downfall was that there was no dining room for breakfast and that all breaksfasts came to the room. They were delectable but one reason we like B&B's is the chance to meet other visitors. This is near impossible there. Also the room was very dark in the winter, and although a lovely tub, no shower. And the tub had no privacy - maybe a screen available would help. With the dark lampshades it was impossible to read in bed. I think we just picked a poor room for our needs. It was just not my idea of a B&B from a co-mingling or even chatting with the propriator goes. But good if you want to be left alone.

Our new favorite B&B. This is the perfect place for a cozy getaway. Beautiful ambiance and attention to detail. Breakfast delivered to your room! Even a small fridge and glasses so you can enjoy that bottle of your favorite wine while soaking in the tub and listening to the crackling of a real wood fireplace. The location is perfect for exploring the downtown on foot. Loved it!

I absolutely enjoyed my room and all the extras ( double soaker tub, wood burning fireplace and cozy bedding. On top of it all the fresh homemade bread with breakfast in the morning! The only one thing that I didn't like was the squeaky floor near the sink. But remember you are in a beautiful character style home. A wonderful place to stay in the heart of Victoria!! :)

The Celebration Room at the Humbolt House Bed and Breakfast was so elegant and romantic it took a while to soak it all in. From the lace curtains framing the top of the bed, the double jacuzzi, the wood burning fireplace, to breakfast being served in a basket through a little portal in the wall, my husband and I were delighted. Not only would I recommend this to family and friends, we're booking again soon for our next anniversary. Don't miss this romantic getaway, right in the heart of Victoria.

"Surprising Visit"
06/06/15 ereiter59 Melbourne, Florida
Had an amazing night at Humboldt House in Victoria, BC. We had originally planned to stay somewhere else but at last minute it fell through. We went to visitors center and they recommended Humboldt House. Since we were booking last minute, David gave us a discount on room. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised!! A sunken tub with jacuzzi, a wood burning fireplace, chocolate truffles and more. A beautiful room with a very comfortable bed. Would stay here again and recommend to others.

"Charming, nice view"
05/30/15 RandyWall Oak Harbor, Washington
The breakfast delivered to the room was scrumptious. Homemade jam for the croissants, delightfully flavorful fruit, and the eggs benedict were perfect. It's located really close to downtown, so an easy walk, but far enough away to be quiet, in the middle of a residential area, and what seemed like a very old private school, St Ann's, I think it was.

"Quaint but needs some updating"
04/12/15 Tony M Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa
Stayed at the Inn for 1 night. Oriental Room has a Hugh comfortable bed but room Is looking a bit tired, and is in need of an update. Lack of stading shower a downside as one has to take a bath in a huge Jacuzi bath which in my opinion is a waste of water. Furniture in room although oriental in feel is all scratched and needing a makeover. Breakfast is served in your room which is nice but lack of a table to eat at a downside. In bed breakfast trays are supplied but once you have bathed dressed and fully awake it makes no sense to get back into bed to have breakfast.

This B&B is absolutely fantastic. The breakfast is unbelievable. I had the eggs benedict both days we stayed there. We stayed in the gazebo suite and we spent a good amount of time in the room because it was so fantastic! It's also within a couple blocks of all the neighborhood amenities. If you like B&B's, this place is a must!

My partner, myself and our adult kids stayed at the Humboldt House B&B a few weekends ago. We were all so very impressed with every aspect of this awesome B&B. The service was amazing (Thank you David) The breakfast was delicious (Thank you David) the rooms were tastefully decorated and very romantic! Everything we needed was at our fingertips ... Sparkling wine and yummy truffles upon our arrival. Was a short walk to the Harbor and local attractions, David was a gracious host our entire stay and kindly extended our check out time AND took care of our luggage while we went to some of the locals attractions after check out but during our wait for our flight home. .. I definitely recommend the Humboldt House B&B!!!

"Excellent Weekend at Humboldt House"
09/29/14 HoratioQM Seattle, Washington
My wife and I stayed two nights in the Garden Suite at the Humboldt House. We had a great time. The room is recently renovated and nicely furnished. We loved the private back entrance, as it made it very easy to come and go. Breakfasts were delicious (our favorite was the eggs benedict), and David's Terrible Truffles were terrific; we even purchased a couple of boxes to take home. David was a great host who helped us get our Butchart Gardens tickets and provided a lot of helpful information. We could have stayed at a cheaper hotel, but the experience we had at Humboldt House (in addition to its extremely convenient location) made it well worth it. Highly recommended.

"Romantic B & B"
09/02/14 Steve G
My bride and I were looking for a place to enjoy the first days of our marriage, in other words, to honeymoon. We wanted to have a place that would be romantic, quiet, and close to fun attractions that we could go and enjoy. The Humboldt House is a perfect place and we are so glad we found it. David is a wonderful host and provides all the services you want and then disappears without providing services you have not asked for. A perfect blend of service and privacy! The food was marvelous and this B & B serves your food to your room through a dumbwaiter that allows for complete privacy. We hope to go back and enjoy the Humboldt House on our anniversaries.
