The Craigmyle is a lovely old house: the rooms are very nicely furnished, the bed comfortable and the breakfast generous and good. It is in a beautiful and peaceful location, as described, a few minutes by bus from downtown Victoria. Mireille was very helpful and considerate. Highly recommended.
Mireille and her husband are very warm and welcoming. The Craigmyle had everything I needed for my 5 week stay during my practicum at the Royal Jubilee Hospital. Good location: perfect 20min walk from the hospital/downtown/grocery stores. Really cool that you have a magical castle in your backyard. The rooms are very clean and beautifully renovated. The room I got was not the most spacious but it was all I needed for one person (all rooms are different though). There wasn't good desk/study space in my bedroom for students but you can study/work/lounge very comfortably in the living room/dining area downstairs. The kitchen is well equipped, it had pretty much everything I needed, good for people who cook regularly. There isn't a freezer and a regular oven (they have a smaller medium sized pizza one) though but that didn't bother me. The free laundry was great especially for those who work at hospitals and have to wash uniforms regularly. I loved the complimentary breakfast buffet every morning. Something I also really liked was the opportunity to meet interesting people from all around the world too as they host different people in the various rooms in the Craigmyle. It really felt like the perfect home away from home.. and more. It was almost hotel standard! Overall I loved my stay here!
We really enjoyed our stay at Craigmyle. Our room, if somewhat over furnished was very nice to stay in and we enjoyed the character of the building and neighbourhood. We were well looked after by the (locum) hosts.
What a great place. It's a BNB right next to the Castle. You can grab your breakfast (included) and go sit on the lawn of the castle. The location is just great. The room I stayed in was newly renovated and super clean. I felt like a princess. :-)
Mireille's B and B was the perfect place for us to stay while we were in Victoria - nicely located and walking distance to downtown for all the things we wanted to do. The neighborhood is charming.Mireille was a great host, very accommodating and helpful directing us to some great restaurants and venues. The continental breakfast was lovely. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this home away from home!
Mireille has been great hosts. She is very friendly and helpful. When I first got Victoria, I lost the way and she helped me to figure out there to go.
The room is nice and cozy, has good window view. Also, the washroom is attached to the room, which is very comfortable. Furthermore, many free resources are available (I would not write down what is available since some might be added or removed later on, but ask her!).
Overall, I enjoyed my stay and highly recommend Mireille to be your host!
