Amethyst Inn is a fully-restored historic mansion dating from 1885. A few of our many features are 13 foot ceilings, period furniture and antiques. There are cosy fireplaces in most rooms. In the parlour we serve a full breakfast on antique crystal and china. To help you unwind there are jacuzzis in some of our rooms, and don’t worry about your car: we have lots of free parking on our property.
This romantic Victorian inn offers luxury at an affordable price. We have a Victoria five star hotel rating and were given "the best breakfast in Canada" award by Inn Traveler Magazine (2005). Our staff know Victoria well and will be pleased to guide you to the best Victoria destinations.
Amethyst Inn is located in the elegant Rockland district of Victoria about 3 km. (2 miles) north-east of downtown. Within easy walking distance are Craigdarroch Castle, the Victoria Jubilee Hospital, and the Lieutenant-Governor’s residence whose magnificent French gardens are available to you free of charge. You could spend hours exploring the old mansions in our tree-lined neighborhood.
We are only a ten-miute walk from Antique Row (Fort Street). A fifteen walk will take you to the magnificent BC Museum, the Inner Harbour and the shops on Government Street. We're also close to Camosun College, the Victoria Conference Centre, and the University of Victoria ("Uvic" as the locals say).
All our breakfast dishes are prepared by our wonderful hostess and served in our elegant dinning room. Breakfast at the Amethyst Inn is an experience in itself! Please check Tripadvisor, to see our guests' glowing reviews.
Victoria B&B packages are available to help you celebrate Victoria honeymoons, anniversaries, weddings, romantic getaways, etc. We can help to arrange catering for your event so that it is done in style. Many of our guests return, time and again.
