Lovely place
Super hospitable folks at the desk, and a nice old building, full of character. They provided a continental breakfast with extra treats because the restaurant was closed for the holiday. Nice! Great medium length walks in every direction, too.

Overnight getaway
From the first moment we were greeted on check-in until we checked out after breakfast our stay was wonderful!! Friendly knowledgeable staff, great dining in both the pub and restaurant.
Karen, ca1 night trip
Very Good 8.0
This is sn easy recommendation
I would recommend this place without hesitation. Its charm alone is something to behold. Reception is fantastic and equally as charming. Can't wait to go back with my fiance. The only downside was we couldn't stay longer.
Kerri, ca1 night trip with friends
Very Good 8.0
Always a pleasure.
We always enjoy our stay at the James Bay Inn and have stayed there for get away weekends for many years. It is a charming Inn located in a beautiful part of Victoria. However this time when I booked I did not realize that the room would be so small. With just a double bed and a desk in the room, it was impossible for two people to move around at the same time (the bathroom was a decent, comfortable size). Outside of this once, I fully recommend this Inn.

Great experience, great service. Won’t regret it
The service was outstanding. Breakfast at the restaurant is vast and tasty. Unfortunately my in-law found a pack of condoms aside the bed.
