Just stayed at Fairholme for two wonder days and cannot say enough about this B&B. On every level--quality of accommodations, service, location--it absolutely excelled.
At the heart of its successful is the owner Sylvia who was very welcoming and helpful. We arrived early to Fairholme to find our keys thoughtfully taped to the door with a welcome note. Whether at the inn or not, she was always accessible and helpful via cellphone, which we called a couple of times for last minute restaurant guidance.
We stayed in the Grand Olympic Suite, which is the single most spacious room I've had the pleasure of experiencing in my B&B travels. Fireplace (ready to go), great views, sun deck, comfortable and well-appointed bathroom--all arranged with a terrific eye for detail. Wireless worked perfectly, which was important as we had to work for the first day.
Moreover, the location between downtown Victoria and Oak Bay was perfect. Quite a bit to see walking out Fairholme's door right in the immediate residential neighborhood of stately homes. Indeed, this place is literally next door to Government House, which (as an American) I came to discover is the official residence of the Queen's representative to British Columbia. Several acres of beautiful gardens to enjoy and photograph right on your doorstep.
Also need to share a plug about breakfast. Very thoughtfully laid out in a two-course arrangement, with delicious fresh fruit, yoghurt, and muffins presented as course one, with full hot breakfast beautifully served and prepared as course two. Forget about lunch (which shouldn't be a problem). Your next meal will be dinner.
Thank you Sylvia for providing so comfortable and inviting accommodations.
