My husband and I stay in the hotel for 6 nights. Our room has beautiful ocean views. It was nice to sit in balcony breathing fresh air and listening to water sound and ocean whispering or drinking some beers and watching the sunrise/ sunset. At first glance the hotel appears expensive but once you get there some points: lovely mineral... More

I recently travelled around the world with my family. We stayed in over over 100 different places including hotels, hostels, farm stays etc. on virtually every continent and without doubt, for just over $200/night this hotel would rank as the best value for money of all the places we stayed. It's high quality service, fantastic facilities (including the on site... More

My wife of 30 years and I just spent two nights at The Oak Bay and we had a fantastic time! We had a full waterfront view from the 2nd floor. The sunrises and sunsets were breathtaking overlooking the mineral pool and hot tubs. The staff was wonderful and attentive, even having chocolate dipped strawberries waiting for us upon checking...

We celebrated our anniversary by spending a couple days in Victoria. The Oak Bay Beach Hotel turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Absolutely one of the nicest places we've stayed. A very classy place.

My family comes to Victoria once or twice a year to visit my parents. For the last few years, since it was renovated, my husband and I have stayed at the Oak Bay Beach hotel to have a couple of nights away from the kids. It has incredible ocean views, both a pub and formal restaurant and a beautiful landscaped... More

My husband and I spent one lovely night at the hotel. We had a king suite, which was clean, and nicely decorated. The bathroom had a wonderful tub, perfect for bubble baths, and a sliding wood shutter which opened into the room. The only complaint was that no movies or pay per view was available. We had breakfast in bed,... More

Awesome location right on the water. Rooms modern but stately. Pool/spa area the best. We plan to stay here again. Parking is free which is unusual for a Victoria hotel. Recommend this hotel to couples and families with older children,

The hotel room was wonderful: clean, roomy and quiet. the staff were very helpful and friendly. They went out of their way several times to help. There are so many wonderful places to... More
