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.

Our stay was excellent!! The John Lewis B&B allowed us to walk to all downtown sites, waterfront walkways and the cruise terminal. Our hosts, Bob and Becky, took extra time to hear about what we were interested in and provided local insights and a map. The morning breakfast was fresh, tasty and far more than expected! We especially enjoyed sitting on the front veranda of the lovely 100+ year old historic home watching the horse drawn carriages going by. We will be back for our next Victoria getaway!

We had a wonderful stay at the John Lewis House. Bob is a great guy and knows the area well. He provided helpful info on local restaurants and attractions. Becky is very welcoming and can whip up an incredible breakfast. The room was immaculate and the bed was the most comfortable bed of our entire tour of the Northwest. Winners all around

We had a wonderful weekend at Bob & Becky's. Their place is very clean and in a great location. Just an easy ten minute walk to downtown. Breakfast was delicious and we appreciated our to-go muffins! We would definitely return.

Bob and Becky are amazing hosts, very friendly and easy to get along with. They were very accommodating, esp as we asked to watch the rugby at 8am each morning! They made coffee for us to drink as we watched the game and then we had breakfast later. The food was lovely especially the presentation. The extra touch like the 'goodie' basket was appreciated, as well as the 'muffins to go' for later in the day. It was a very convenient location to down-town and the ocean drive.

In a quiet neighborhood, on a historic street, and a hop-skip-and-a-jump from downtown... Win, win!
