The home is Victorian, but the food was as deliciously healthy as could be. I could eat that breakfast each and every day. Close to downtown and great service makes this a return visit sometime next year.

Humboldt House is located close to downtown and the waterfront which made it attractive to us since we were happy to park our car in the back parking area and walk everywhere for the 3 days we were in Victoria. Our room, the Oriental, was a bit tight when our luggage rack was set up but we were able to...

My stay at Humboldt House was great! The location is perfect: close to downtown. And the rooms are beautiful. The house has a wonderful feel to it. We loved the breakfast; they have 3 options and use local ingredients. The staff was very friendly and super helpful. I would highly recommend staying at the Humboldt House B&B!

I recently stayed at the Humboldt house B&B, the location was perfect for walking downtown or to the great park down the street. It was refreshing to stay at a bed and breakfast that serves healthy food and I really enjoyed the breakfast service to my room. I have stayed in many hotels and b&b's and I have to say...

We booked this B&B based on exceptional reviews of its room, location and its breakfast. Its also advertised as good for business people. The location is perfect, everything else was not. We travel a lot and stay in many B&Bs and this is first time I have rated anything this low. The room was tiny, located in an above ground...

We recently flew to Sea-Tac, went to see friends in Anacortes. We got rooms at the Humbolt House for Sunday, the 24th of July. Easy to find, friendly staff, fresh scones in the Library all day. After a minor problem with a resevation for two rooms, not one, we were shown the Mikado Room, for our fiends, and the Oriental...

My boyfriend and I saved for four years for our BC vacation the whole trip was worth waiting for and Humboldt House was the grand finale and also worth the wait! Our room was lovingly and delightfully decorated and had a fabulous jacuzzi sized tub with jets. The breakfast was just as unique and delicious as the room decor. Our...

Lovely people, spotlessly clean, close walk to the waterfront but we our room was on the "garden" level, code for basement. There's two rooms down there, one is a more classic victorian style but a bit weird with tub in the middle of the room, two chairs in front of the tub and a fireplace in front of the chairs....

Such beautiful rooms, great breakfast with choice of four meals. Great location near the gardens, beach, downtown and community cafe area. Massive bed in old world luxury style. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Likely one of the best value and nicest places to stay in Victoria. This place is a gem.

Humboldt is a gorgeous Victorian b&b in a peaceful location within blocks of the downtown area of Victoria. Great proximity to shopping and dining as well as very fairly priced. We stayed in the Gazebo room, which we felt was quite roomy for two and was decorated comfortably. Breakfast was delicious and delivered through a wall cubby at our chosen...
