We stayed here in July and its taken me far too long to post a review because it was a very memorable couple of nights. Located in a turn of the century manor house next to Government House, in one of the nicest parts of Victoria, Fairholme Manor is quite simply unforgettable and the best B&B I have ever stayed...

We stayed 2 nights in late August. The house and gardens are beautiful and breakfast was excellent. Australian style "flat white" coffee was attempted when requested and explained and was almost right. Walking to downtown is a bit of a stretch but interesting and the Castle and Government House gardens close by are well worth a visit. There was a... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of August. Wish we could have stayed longer. A beautiful property in a quiet location set in lovely gardens. If that isn 't enough, the gardens next door at Government House are marvellous. Sylvia & Ross are the perfect hosts. The attention to detail both in the rooms and the presentation... More

This b&b in Victoria BC has the most wonderful views across the water to Port Angeles. We were made very welcome by Ross who showed us to our magnificent suite. Ross also made dinner reservations for us and gave us lots of helpful information. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable and was equipped with everything you could possibly need.... More

Beautiful Fairholme Manor is next to the goverment house gardens in central Victoria. The breakfasts were outstanding everyday and a great variety. The hosts, Sylvia and husband, whose name excapes me, were great and extremely helpful in planning our day. The room was huge and comfortable, clean and well appointed.

Super cute b&b with a beautiful garden. The owners are great and the food was fabulous. We took our two young children and it was perfect for all of us. It was in a nice neighborhood and you definitely needed a car to get into downtown but otherwise it was perfect!

Our family experienced a unique and intimate wedding at the Fairholme Manor. With Sylvia's help the entire day was exactly what our son and his bride were searching for - from the location, to the gardens, to the food, there was nothing that could have been better. Even the weather was perfect!! We all loved our rooms and of course... More

One of the best B&B experiences we've had. Sylvia and Ross are exceptional innkeepers. The home is charming and gracious, the beds comfortable and the rooms have all the amenities. The breakfasts are tasty - Sylvia is a very creative chef. She right on top of the food scene in Victoria. Her recommendations in Victoria and in Vancouver as well... More

Fairholme Manor was a beautiful, spacious B&B that was so inviting, we were tempted to stay in rather than sight see. The gardens were fantastic as was the staff. Sylvia is the owner and resident chef. Her breakfast creations were beyond compare. We plan to visit again next year for a longer stay in Victoria.
