great off campus experience
"I had a great off campus experience at RRU, thanks to Birds of a Feather. My first few days downstairs in room 5 were good but room 1 was fabulous. I was here to work rather than be a tourist and it was a much nicer experience with views of the water and frequent visits by a variety of birds. When I graduate I'll be bringing my husband back to stay here. "

Appreciated the peaceful setting at Birds of a Feather
" As a student, I really appreciated the peaceful setting at Birds of a Feather. The view is lovely and I felt very relaxed and comfortable during my stay. The beautiful walk through the forest to Royal Roads is also a wonderful way to clear your head before a busy day! "

Birds of a Feather ... The Great Escape ...
" Where can you wake up in the morning on a quiet lagoon,far away from winter? Where can you have a home cooked breakfast made by warm and inviting hosts? AND, where can you witness wildlife from deer, to sheep, the bald eagle and a wonderful variety of birds out your wrap around window? Well, this is possible at Birds of A Feather B&B in Victoria, British Columbia. We arrived on January 8th, 2011 for a long term stay at Birds of a Feather and found ourselves in awe of the scene of the lagoon from our suite. Escaping the Ontario winter is our goal for the next few months and I cannot believe that we found this place. At our fingertips is the Hatley Park where we have been enjoying many walks and taking in the vistas of the forest.The season has been gentle on our souls in January and February even with a good dusting of snow. This added to the outstanding view of Hatley Castle across the lagoon. While here, trips up island are easy to access and the location is one to be noted for easy day trips. From early morning mist, to breathtaking sunrises, light on the water and the soothing sound of the gentle rains, we are able to co-exist with nature around us in tranquility. I could not think of a better place to spend working, reading and relaxing than Birds of a Feather. It is now April and I look forward to the Spring. The flowers have bloomed and baby lambs are in sight. Easter will be a delight! More reflection to come............as we are here until the end of May! "

Great place for Royal Roads students to stay during residency
" This B&B is a great place for Royal Roads students to stay during residency. The walk in the morning is bright and fresh, and the accommodations are a quiet and luxurious place to study and reflect in the evenings. I really enjoyed my time in Victoria, and will definitely be looking to stay at the B&B again next year. Maybe I’ll even stay a bit longer and bring my husband! "

Highly recommend staying at Birds of a Feather while studying at RRU
" Thanks Dieter & Ashley for your fabulous hospitality and amazing B&B. It was such a treat to stay at Birds of a Feather while I was on a 2 week course at RRU. The location was perfect - right on the lagoon with a view of the university, and less than a 10 minute drive from campus. The mini kitchenette was perfect for preparing simple meals, and I loved the fireplace and big bath tub. The view from my room overlooked the lagoon, with spectacular sunrises. The accommodation and environment were so peaceful, that I found I was able to get so much work done. Lastly, the internet connection worked perfectly, and was most needed it for all my school work. All of this was well worth every penny, and I highly recommend staying at Birds of a Feather while studying at RRU. "

Intense 3 week teaching schedule
"With an intense 3 week teaching schedule at Royal Roads, Birds of a Feather is a perfect retreat after a long day of teaching. With it's view of the lagoon, the campus and the Strait of Juan de Fuca it provides a tranquil setting to reset your mind. The rooms have kitchenettes and all the ammenities you need for the three weeks and have the added bonus of a 20 minute walk through the old growth forest to campus. I have enjoyed my stay here and would gladly stay again for next years residency. "
