This large three-level Craftsman, chalet style, heritage manor was designed by the famous Canadian architect, Samuel Maclure, in 1912 for a prominent local businessman who was well-known for his interest in the prohibition movement and church and was president of the YMCA. The building has since been converted into seven self-contained suites over two decades ago. The suites, all unique from each other, ranging from studio to 1-bedroom suites, all have their own kitchen and bathroom. The manor, known as Trutch Manor Suites, had for many years been Victoria's popular bed and breakfast. The manor is now renamed “Larkspur Manor Suites” to pay homage to the beautiful Victoria, City of Gardens. Larkspur is an old-fashion flower that comes in a variety of shades, with beautiful meanings, most commonly used to symbolize love, affection, strong attachment, happiness, and a pure heart. We believe Larkspur beautifully represents our manor in welcoming people from all shades to have a wonderful, happy experience, whether they are here for a special occasion, holiday making, or to reconnect with loved ones and families. As the new owner with years of hospitality experience hosting travelers, business professionals, and international students from all over the world, and as a super host, and premiere host, I am excited and pleased to continue offering this wonderful manor as your home away from home while you are visiting or working in Victoria.
THINGS TO NOTE:
Before you book, please read the details of this listing to make sure that the suite, our location, and the amenities offered are suitable for you and your party.
This suite is on the second floor (the top floor) of the building. There are stairs to the building and to the suite, (sorry no elevator), and it is not wheelchair accessible. As such, it will be challenging for those with mobility difficulties.
There are some creaks and squeaks on the floor mainly in the hallway and stairs which are to be expected from this vintage of building.
Laundry is at the building in our basement and is coin-operated. You will need 2 loonies (2 $1 coins) each to wash and dry. Laundry is between 9 am - 8 pm.
Our posted rate is for double occupancy. Additional charge applies after 2 people. Please check the listing. If you are two travelers and prefer to have separate sleeping arrangements, please let us know in advance, we are happy to prepare extra bedding for you for an additional fee of $50/stay to cover costs for additional off-site professional laundry services and for additional housekeeping services.
Our 4-year-old dog, Cosmo, a medium-sized Labradoodle, stays with me at the property. You may see him play outside in the courtyard. If you are nervous around dogs, please let me know and I will limit his presence outside.
We have motion sensor security cameras on the outside of our building which stay on during your stay. One at the main entrance near the door outside, one on the side of the building above the gate, one near the fire escape near Unit 7, and one on the garage in our parking lot. We do not have any devices inside the building or in any of the private spaces.
If you have any questions, concerns, or need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.Business Licence #00039505
