Super cozy spot with a view of the castle - nice breakfast buffet bar & a lovely common room on the main floor to hang out by the gas fire place.

"Exceptionally Charming"
This was a great place to stay, from top to bottom (which is where I was- in the basement.) That being said, the basement room (the mini-suite) had plenty of light and was very cozy. Honestly I could have spent my entire stay in Victoria alternating between there and the living room upstairs, I was so comfortable. Plus it's got a fully outfitted kitchen, it even has a stove- I could've gone for an electric kettle, really, but there's free coffee and tea in the mornings, at least. I definitely feel like I could stay here for like... a month. The breakfast was great too, and the dining room/living room is a great place to spend time- simultaneously stately but also homey. And the location was just perfect- up a quiet little street, but literally on the driveway of Craigdaroch Castle, three block from the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, and a 10 minute bike ride away from Chinatown, the Empress, the Royal BC Museum/the BC govt., and shopping on Govt. St.- Murchie's, Munro's, etc. (Take a miss on Bay Center, though- depressingly typical mall.) Oh, and speaking of bikes- I brought mine over on the ferry and the let me keep it inside at night! Much cheaper than bringing a car over and Victoria is very bikable.

"Great B&B option in Victoria"
Our stay was great, staff was very friendly and helpful. The B&B has a lot of old house charm, but is updated with modern amenities. The B&B is right next to the Craigdarroch castle, and our room had great view of the front of the castle.

"Feels Like a Piece of Europe! We'll be Back!"
We spent a night here and loved the European feel. Our room was quite small but we booked the least expensive one so we didn't expect much more.We did see other bigger rooms that were beautiful. The continental breakfast is extensive with many choices and the dining room has beautiful views of Craigdarroch Castle.It's a great walking neighborhood of historic homes and close enough to walk all over Victoria from.

This hotel is in a great residential neighborhood! Within walking distance to great restaurants, shopping and all city has to offer. Our only complaints are that the breakfast never changes - we were there for a week and it was the same every day. Also, if you rent the garden view room with kitchen and TV there is no maid service - no big deal for us, but something to consider.

"Craigmyle B&B"
Nice family friendly place to stay. Only reason I did not score it higher is the size of the bathroom. Be aware it is tiny & suitable for very small people. Almost airplane sized with tiny sink & shower. Not sure if that was just my room or if all are similarly sized. Otherwise a clean, comfortable & convenient place to stay.

My wife and I were celebrating our one year wedding anniversary. It was our first time in Victoria and we loved it! The Craigmyle was clean and in a beautiful neighborhood. The inn keepers were very nice. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast was good too. A light breakfast of fresh fruit and pastries but that was perfect cause we were doing plenty of eating during the day. Would recommend and stay again.

"Interesting location and very cool old house"
Very pleasant and so easy. Would definitely stay again. Our room had nice updates, but retained lots of character. Both windows looked over to (and slightly up to) the Craigdarroch castle. We took a nice night time neighborhood walk around and up to the castle. Nice quiet neighborhood just far enough away from downtown to feel like it's not in a city at all.

"The Unbeatable Home Like Personal Hotel"
The perfect place to stay vacation in a very quiet Home like hotel. I love this place, rich in details. The owner Lady is so friendly and nice, then Paul and Tom, The Inn Keeper are so caring and friendly . Though the place has no lift to carry quite heavy luggages (It was warned before I booked), despite the struggle to go up to the 2nd floor, it was worthed. View is gorgeous, breakfast was excellent, great neighborhood, parking is limited along the stree but I was able to get a spot at night any way...I am very happy. Would recommend and will be back again.

Great stay at the Craigmyle! Loved the ambiance of the hotel and the beautiful rooms. We enjoyed a suite with a small couch, fridge and other amenities! The continental breakfast was fresh and plentiful. Be prepared to climb steps, both up to the hotel and the rooms. The proprietors were friendly and helpful and kept the breakfast trays filled and fresh. Will happily return on our nicest visit!

"Lovely B&B!"
My friend and I loved this charming B&B, there is LITERALLY a castle in the backyard! Our room and bathroom were small, but it was comfortable, unique and stylish. The location was pretty great, but if you don't plan on having a vehicle then keep in mind that with luggage in tow the walk from the ferry to the Bed and Breakfast is pretty rough. In the future I would plan to get a taxi or bus, rather than walk. We got around just fine on foot the rest of the time and you can borrow umbrellas if needed. The included breakfast was great! They offer oatmeal with toppings, yogurt and fresh fruit, bagels, breads, tasty cereals, scones and other pastries along with tons of tea options, juice, milk and coffee. The living area was a wonderfully cozy place to relax and read and the place is packed with sweet thoughtful touches that made our stay unique. Our only slight critique/concern would be that there isn't an air conditioning unit of any kind, just open (screened) windows and a small fan. The weather was wonderful, so it was no trouble for us on this trip, but we did take note of it.

"Couldn't ask for a better place to stay"
We loved our stay at Craigmyle! The service was excellent! Even the included breakfast exceeded our expectation. I love the feel of the place. I feel like it's very victorian. From the exterior up to all the furnitures make you feel like you are in a different era. I also like how it's just literally few steps away from the Craigdarroch Castle which is a must visit if you ever go to Victoria. I just love everything about Craigmyle! Would definitely stay here again if we go back.

We spent one night here and it was fantastic! The room was beautiful and clean! If you are not in shape and have heavy luggage, however, this place might be challenging because it is like an English home with narrow staircase to the bedrooms. We are in shape so not a problem! The breakfast is yoghurt, fresh berries, cereal, juice, bread, peanut butter, jam, fruit, coffee and tea. I would definitely stay here again!

"Something more like home"
We really like the Craigmyle and we will be back. You have to enjoy old homes, and a certain absence of things (i.e. large bathrooms, plentiful plugs, tvs). It was quiet and comfortable. The continental breakfast is good, tasty and more than adequate. There is a little tuck shop and a fireside room to gather with a couple of friends. There is also a guest kitchen where you can do a little of your own food prep. It's right next door to Craigdarroch Castle which was pleasant to look at out the windows. The neighborhood was quiet and convenient to what we wanted. They are telling you the truth about the stairs but that wasn't a problem for us. Completely enjoyable.

The Craigmyle is a historical inn with lots of character. The room seemed clean but was very small and choppy. There was a wide variety of foods at breakfast. Many amenities were available that we could not take advantage of such as laundry, food storage, and computer use. A beautiful castle is located next door.

"Nice hotel in nice neighborhood"
The hotel was easy to find. It had only street parking, but we had no trouble finding a space. It is an old rooming house that has been refurbished with great bathrooms and lovely rooms. There is a full kitchen for your use at any time. While the staff were very responsive, there was no one there to help with luggage when we arrived. We ended up leaving our big bags in the car because we could not take them up the two long flights of stairs. Also, the continental breakfast consisted of cold cereal, store-bought bagels and pastries. The good stuff was the yogurt and fresh fruit. All in all, we'd stay there again.

"Lack of Basic Amenities"
We've travelled all over the world and say to each other, "Oh, Oh, it's French". We find that French-heritage establishments are big on "little nic-nacs", but short on basic amenities, like Kleenex tissues, a coffee-maker, a TV, a convenient electrical outlet, etc., etc., etc.

The only critique we have is that they need to repair or replace the blinds in our room. They weren't working very well, so we needed to wear sleeping masks to get some rest.

"Good but not great."
Overall a good place to stay. Room was clean but pretty small. A little disappointing that there was no TV in the room and the curtains did not cover the windows completely. Normally would be a big issue but I was working at night and needed to sleep during the day. Breakfast was okay but a little variety would have been nice. Everything was clearly from a grocery store and just cut up. Serving the same thing everyday was boring. They had 4 wifi networks but it was pretty slow. Hard to get any real work done although there were IMac in the lobby.

"A Great Place For Explorers"
Wonderful B'n'b close to Craigdarroch Castle. Beautiful home and lovely room. Great breakfast. A few things were missing: Kleenex and bottled water by the bed. The chips for sale in the main room were out of date and the fruit in the breakfast had some mould. We would go back , however, as those small things can be fixed. What we found missing was SERVICE. Sure they had the room clean, the food ready and available but the hosts.....we never met or talked to once. No thank you- nothing. Our room key was left in the mailbox and we had no option of paying other than what was booked at Hotels.ca.....despite it listing that you pay AT THE HOTEL. Also- it wouldn't hurt to negotiate a better rate with the castle for their guests. It's right there! Overall it was a lovely weekend and we would return based on the rate alone. To the hosts- please consider having someone to greet your guests. It's unnerving to stay somewhere new and not have a soul say a thing to you upon arrival or checkout.

"Cheap, cosy, and cheerful"
We stayed for two nights, Feb 5 and 6. Small but cozy room in suite 101. Comfy queen bed. Bathroom very clean with rainshower head, eco friendly toiletries. Radiant hot-water heating kept us cosy as it was chilly outside. There's a living room area with fireplace on the main floor, great for end of evening relaxation with self-serve cup of tea and snacks (nominal charge for these; funds go to innkeeper's daughter's fundraising). Breakfast is also self-serve from 7am to 10am. You can help yourself to a variety of breads (including gluten free), pastries, seasonal fruit, granola, cereal, oatmeal (in individual packets), yogurt, juices, tea and coffee. When you're finished, you're expected to put away your own dishes. There's also a kitchen for making your own meals, but we didn't use it. NOTE: If you plan to sleep in, try to book a room in a low traffic area. The house is more than 100 years old, and footsteps, chatter can be heard throughout - unavoidable - so ask for the quietest room if you need it. Also, with old houses comes musty smells. Very noticeable in our room. Not sure if it was because of the bedding, curtains, rug, thrift furniture, etc., but it did have an intense smell that triggered some allergies. I'd recommend opening up a window to air out the room while away, or using an ionic nebulizer with lavender oil to purify the air. Plenty of french decor throughout.

"Improve your customer service"
This place has a nice, quaint inn feel. We enjoyed the walking proximity to Fernwood and Downtown. At night a cab after dinner was an inexpensive 5-10$ ride. The owners have recently invested in renovations and they've done a nice job. The rooms are attractive and the sitting area if comfortable. The breakfast in the am has plenty of variety and is fresh. The walls are pretty thin and we heard a lot of noise from the hallways - ear plugs would be useful. The staff are around and nice, friendly girls. However, we were disappointed to get back and discover our room had not been cleaned. Bed wasn't made, cups and towels where they were left. On the next day, we asked the girls to please make up the room while we were out as it hadn't been done the day before and we were told they would. I departed but my husband returned to a pile of clean towels in front of our door. The room had not been cleaned. He again, spoke to the staff and informed them he was out of toilet paper - he was heading out until the evening but could they please clean the room and ensure the toilet paper was restocked. They said of course. When he got back from dinner - no clean room and no toilet paper. No staff available to help him that night, he checked out early the next am. I contacted the owner via email as no one answered the phone - that was 2 days ago, no response yet.

Unfortunately, I was unable to stay here as my husband had a heart attack and I had to leave immediately. I did not use the room and when I handed in the key I told them why I had to leave. My visa bill has the full amount charged. Sad really....this is a very small place so you would think someone would have considered either a discount or not charging at all. I will never book here again!! Also, no one greeted me and I did know what to do when I got there. I walked around with my heavy suitcase until finally a neighbor came out and explained to me what to do. Do you know how many stairs are around this place!!!! Lots!!
