We had a wonderful stay at Villa Marco Polo; the Inn is gorgeous and in a convenient location, just enough out of downtown to be nice and quiet. The lovely ladies running the establishment were professional, personable, fun, and extremely helpful. They provided outstanding service and genuinely cared that we enjoyed our stay. The breakfast in the morning was the... More

My husband and I celebrated our 28th wedding Anniversary in the Silk Road Suite at Villa Marco Polo Inn. We chose this suite as we love wood burning fireplaces. What an amazing, lovely place to stay. They are wonderful to deal with and others staying there from out of town said they were extremely helpful. We live here in Victoria... More

The Inn feels like home, but much cleaner! It's a beautiful place in a great neighborhood. Diana and Danusia were very nice and informative about Victoria. They also are great cooks. Whenever we get back to the Island this will be the place we'll want to stay. We were there in fairly cold and wet weather so the fireplaces made... More

A leisurely game of bocce, a glass of amarone, a stroll past the reflecting pool of an Italian Renaissance garden, a massage in a romantic penthouse spa. Tuscany or Umbria perhaps?

This classically designed Victoria Inn, built in 1923 as a gift to a young bride, remains a favourite romantic getaway and wedding venue. ... more   less
