Because the Abbeymoore is a small, privately run bed and breakfast, you should be aware of some of the policies that are unlike larger hotel chains. 

  • Prices quoted are based on 2 people. Depending on the room you choose, up to 4 additional people may be accommodated at a rate of $45 per person, per night.
  • Deposits are required at the time of reservations. If your stay is up to 4 nights, they require payment equal to 1 night stay. The remaining balance is due 14 days prior to your arrival.
  • If your stay is 5 nights or longer, Abbeymoore requires a 50% deposit at the time of reservation with the balance payable 21 days prior to your arrival.
  • If you need to cancel there will be a $30 administration fee. If you cancel prior to full payment being made (see above) you will get your deposit back minus the $30 admin fee. 
  • Abbeymoore recommends you book through a credit card that has trip cancellation insurance or you work with a travel agent to secure the appropriate insurance in the event of a late cancellation.
  • Guests are expected to stay the full length they have booked for. There is no refund for guests who leave early.
  • The Manor is 100% smoke free.
  • Small, friendly dogs are welcome in two of the suites at a fee of $30 per night however they are not allowed on the furniture. A cleaning fee and/or damage fee may be charged to the credit card on file if there is any evidence of doggy misbehaviour. Dogs are also not allowed to be left alone anywhere on the premises (including inside the room).

Guest Comments

Overall, guests of Abbeymoore Manor have positive things to say about the cleanliness of the rooms and grounds, comfy beds and professional, friendly staff. Guests were pleased with the quality of breakfast pre-COVID however they don't seem quite as impressed with the current offerings. The location of the Manor is in a quiet, safe neighbourhood but individual rooms may not be as sound proof as you get in a hotel. There is a television downstairs in the sitting room however there are none in the sleeping rooms.

We hope you enjoy your stay in beautiful Victoria BC and recommend you rent an RV to explore the rest of Vancouver Island. Find local RV rentals here
