I asked about coffee in the morning and was told it would be set out around 7 I never found any. Owner showed me my room it was nice got... More

Friendly Oaks has all the potential and they have been in business for a long time, but it just did not do it for us. My family filled up the place. We reserved every room. The home is great. Each room has a private bath, very nice and unusual for a B&B. And all the utilities work great. Great shower/water,... More

Find a different B& B it has seen better days, the meals are not gourmet like advertised. In 2015 it is not up to date. It is not a quiet accommodation unless you are deaf. Rooms are not looking like the pictures that are outdated.

My husband and I went to Victoria for his birthday celebration. We chose The Friendly Oaks Bed and Breakfast because of the reviews as well as the great location close to downtown square. Bill, innkeeper, gave great suggestions of things to do in Victoria. We enjoyed the Downtown Rhythms (a special event including school and college bands and the Victoria... More

We had a very pleasant stay at the Friendly Oaks. The owners are genteel and friendly with lots of local knowledge which they are happy to share. But the outstanding aspect of our stay were the breakfasts which are far beyond 'typical B&B' fare. The host says that he has 14 different breakfasts which he rotates. We had three on... More

This is a lovely old home in the center of Victoria. The owners were full of good information about the town. Our room, large and decorated in a very romantic style, with a large bathroom/dressing room. The breakfast was the crepes others have mentioned(delicious). A large beautiful porch was delightful for early evening and coffee in the morning.

Overall, enjoyed my stay here. Room was comfortable, although their is major construction going on next door, so no sleeping in. Breakfast were fantastic, and the management was friendly. One big downside is there is no place within the house to sit and relax, so it is rather like using a room in someone's house rather than a typical B&B.

I did not spend a lot of time inside Friendly Oaks, but when I was there I loved every minute of it. The hosts are friendly and know a lot about Victoria and all of its charm. My bedroom was large and comfortable. I had my own bathroom, including a vanity section to get ready in the morning. The shower... More

A nice old house in downtown Victoria. My husband and I only stayed one night. The room was large and the owners were very nice. Breakfast was good but different then the usually BNB food. Take your own towels, the ones we had were to ruff and old. This is not a BNB to go to if you want alone... More
