The Lord Nelson Bed and Breakfast offers a quiet neighbourhood retreat, yet is only a five minute drive from downtown Victoria. Sit awhile by the gentle waters, just a block away. Leave those stressful deadlines across the water, and sail or fly to your Vancouver Island getaway. Stroll the oceanfront boardwalk and cliffside pathways, and sit awhile by the gentle waters. View the Olympic mountains while you picnic in one of our many parks, and just relax.
Our b&b features a touch of old English charm, elegance and serenity, with the luxury of modern conveniences and furnishings.

Take your time to choose a few of Victoria’s must-see attractions, but come home to the Lord Nelson Bed & Breakfast and soak in the private garden hot tub and watch a movie on a big screen TV or VCR, with popcorn. Perhaps enjoy a slow barbeque first, with relaxing CD’s, or birdsong all around. Enjoy squirrels balancing along their high-wire freeways, and delight in the many flowerbeds about the grounds.
Private garden hot tub...
We’ve taken cues from our guests to evolve our B&B. They find their experience to be like no other. Time after time guests tell us they will hardly be here, and just need a bed, but each night we hear them arrive home, one after the other soon after dinner, to enjoy a hot tub soak and a movie, or a quiet read in the gardens. Often we’ll go around a corner in the middle of the day to find someone sitting amongst the flowers, back for a quiet respite.
Always a setting to behold...
Our Victoria bed and breakfast accommodation is an experience in itself. Your hosts will serve you breakfast and provide insider information not to be found at other forms of accommodation. Interesting conversations around the breakfast table are an integral part of your stay, and furnishings and décor for each room are always personal; sometimes whimsical. Breakfasts will be home-cooked, with house specialties. Often there’s a novel request; an extra cushion for the dining table chair, extra butter for the popcorn, a spare toothbrush! Think of your hosts as favourite family, because that’s the way you’re treated.
