    Only 1 chair in room, noise from walking in room above, light from window between hallway and our room shines directly on your face while in bed!!

    I have no idea that the location of English Inn takes 5 - 7 min. from downtown in Victoria by car, so I took a taxi. But Fleming beach where is down 2 blocks from B&B is awesome! You can see the great view in 10 min. walk. No restaurant and dining dining room in English Inn. so it is better to have dinner in downtown in Victoria. Although I know it is B&B, I totally have forgotten about it... Don't worry that there is a restaurant near the hotel.

    The decor was excellent, with a very old English feel but with a bit of bling. Room was large with some period furniture to add to the theme. Gardens were large and well maintained. It was a lovely quiet retreat.

    The continental breakfeast was the smallest I have had. Yoghurt, tea, croissant and an apple. No butter or jams. No toast, No cereal. The room we had didn't have air conditioning so we had to leave the windows open which did not have screens. Fortunately there were no problems with insects at this time but it meant the curtains were also open and the sun came in early. We were on the third floor and the last stair case is very narrow and steep. Be prepared to either take a small bag of what you need or specify a lower floor room.

    It has an old-world charme and a tranquille setting

    We were delighted with the value of the accommodation we received by booking with Booked.net. Our room was large, quiet, and comfortable. The English Inn needs some TLC on its large grounds and gardens but provides a country feel in the city.

    It looks great.

    No elevator, no hairdryer, problems w/ internet, poor room lighting, uncomfortable bed, uncomfortable seating in room, no heating or cooling control. No services between 10:00PM to 8:00AM.

    The Inn was charming and beautifully situated. The rooms were large clean and comfortable. It was in a quiet residential neighborhood but still very convenient to Victoria.

    The only negative (very small) was that the only beverage readily available at breakfast was coffee. Tea was available, but one had to ask for hot water ... or cold water for that matter if one was not a coffee drinker.

    I liked the comfortable beds, the clean rooms and the house with its gardens.

    As stated when I was checking out, I found a significant discrepancy between what is being advertised in the photos and during the booking, and the reality. During the booking it was never said that the room is in the 3rd floor with no facilities for handicap people. The carpet on the stairs that take you to the 3rd floor need to be clean; it does not make a good impression to see a stained carpet. The breakfast, when you look at the pictures in the hotel's site, you get the impression it is a continental breakfast that suits the hotel, but the small table with paper cups and plastic cutlery makes you feel like in a chain hotel from the style of "Days Inn" or similar. Although this is advertised as a non smoking facility, the last night the people in the room below number 9, where we stayed, did not stop smoking in the small balcony (I think it is the room number 5), so we had to close the windows, so the air won't bring the smoke into our room. Another thing that you should pay attention to is that at this time of the year many of your guests are on holidays or a short break and maybe willing to sleep a little later than normal; it would be really considerate if the cleaning staff were instructed to keep their conversation to the right level.

    It could be much more. The grounds were beautiful and deserve lots of praise. antique furnishings would be more appropriate in the DR and if it would serve food it would be much more inviting. Fireplace lit, classical music,, it could be better- like it use to be. I can see why people come to get married in the gardens. They are magnificant.

    Price line had a better price , but I had already booked with you.

    Location and the ambience, plus their reputation as a superior Inn Still has a family atmosphere

    No early breakfast for early travellers, stairs required so difficult for those with mobility concerns.

    The Inn and the grounds are an amazing mansion. Absolutely worth the visit when in Victoria -- but those who wish to book a night should be very cautious (see below). The one good thing is when we demanded a full refund (once again, see below), we were given no resistance and promptly promised one would be forthcoming.

    The critical flaw was the bed/mattress that seemed to be as old as the mansion itself! I am a business traveler who spends 9 months on the road so I have slept in a large sampling of beds. This was by far the worse! It was so broken down that within two hours I was on floor, wrapped in a spare blanket trying to ease the pain in my back and neck. I spent the next four hours alternately returning to the bed trying to sleep, returning to floor trying to ease the pain and finally sitting up in a moderately comfortable chair attempting to read until dawn. When morning arose there were no fresh baked goods as promised due to the heating element being under repair (weak!) -- even the fruit looked like it had fallen off the produce truck. None of the fireplaces were lit so sitting in the lobbies/ office was out. The quaint lounge which was advertised open nightly was abandoned. Unfortunately the weekend "get away" was ruined and we returned home early. I was in pain for two days after.

    Gardens, scenery and room was beautiful. Made me feel at home. The price was right for the value I got. Very quiet and calm
