About this listing

The space

John Lewis House is a Bed & Breakfast with two bedrooms each with one queen bed accommodating a maximum of two people. Each room has a private bathroom. The price quoted is for one room.

The John Lewis House was built in 1900 by master cabinetmaker John Lewis, who came to Victoria from Wales in the late 1890s. Evidence of his craft can be seen throughout the house, especially in the ornate mantelpiece and decorative woodwork in the living room as well as in the wood-panelled vestibule.

The John Lewis House is located on Government Street in James Bay, the oldest residential neighbourhood in Victoria. James Bay contains many significant heritage homes that are designated under the city’s Residential Heritage Program.

Our house is less than a block from the Dallas Road waterfront, where you can walk towards Ogden Point in one direction, or east to Clover Point and further around the coast. The scenery is stunning, with the Olympic Mountain range in Washington State to the south across the Strait of Georgia.

Downtown Victoria is 15 minutes’ walk from the John Lewis House. Local We are ideally placed for visits to the Royal BC Museum, the Legislature, the Inner Harbour and many other attractions as well as shopping and restaurants.

Beacon Hill Park is a short walk away, where you can enjoy the many landscaped gardens, especially the rhododendron garden, as well as the trails, playground, playing fields and petting zoo. Pause for a while to watch games of tennis, cricket, lawn bowls, or even croquet.

The place has a good vibe, is immaculate and the bed was really comfortable. The breakfasts were exquisite and they had great considerations for a food intolerance. Bob and Becky are definitely great hosts. They were very helpful with activities and restaurants suggestions.

We had a great time in Victoria, certainly helped by the local knowledge and helpfulness of Bob and Becky. The lovely house is in a very convenient location and we were able to walk to town, the waterfronts and park easily. Breakfasts were excellent. We would certainly recommend this property.

We cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Bob and Becky. The house was located within a mile of everything we wanted to see, the home was immaculate and the bed was extremely comfortable. The experience was everything and more that was advertised. The breakfasts were gourmet and absolutely delicious, and the meals were served so elegantly. Our hosts' recommendations for restaurants were also spot on and we ate some incredible meals during our stay in Victoria. Bob and Becky's attentiveness, wit and delightful conversation made this a very memorable stay as well. We would highly recommend this wonderful bed and breakfast!

We very much enjoyed our stay in Victoria. The historic home was very charming as were the hosts. Breakfast was exceptionally delicious and the location of the home was just a short walk to the downtown area. We would definitely consider a return visit to this B&B.
