Albion Manor has received a TripAdvisor ‘Certificate of Excellence
’ aware for the last 5 years and in 2015, we received a TripAdvisor 'Hall of Fame Award'
and a 'Traveller’s Choice Award'
. We are rated in the top 10 bed and breakfast in Canada. Even so, we are only #2 on TripAdvisor for Victoria Bed and Breakfasts since 1999 and therefore, we keep trying even harder. We have been acknowledged as among the top 25 bed and breakfast in North America and the top 25 Most Romantic Inns in North America.
Albion Manor is surrounded by a lush English country garden that provides guest with an oasis in which to relax and unwind at the end of a working day or a busy day of sightseeing. Enjoy a drink on the large verandah or take a walk around the grounds and explore the Obelisk Garden, the setting for several unique sculptures including: the Playwrights' Font, Anicha, and Fernando's 'Hamburger Obelisque'.
We are both artists. Don has an extensive history with theatre and film design and Fernando has a degree from Artes Aplicadas in Seville and studied for a Fine Arts degree at Simon Fraser University. Together we have created a warm and welcoming home for guests - a home decorated with an eclectic collection of antiques and original artwork from around the world and surrounded with a lush garden that is our passion.
On entering the house, guests are greeted by the indomitable 'Maria de Medici', one of Fernando's spectacular creations. The walls of the living room, dining room and the halls are a veritable canvas of paintings, sketches, etchings and sculptures. There are treasures from the jungles of Papua New Guinea, carvings brought out of Northern Thailand on the back of an elephant, and antiques from the back streets of Kyoto, Japan.
