We had a lovely waterfront room (worth it!!) with a patio and the view was amazing. Each morning, we would get a pastry and coffee from the small cafe on the main floor and take it to our patio and enjoy the scenery before we began our day. It did not hurt that the weather was also amazing, and we... More

I brought my wife to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary, as it's an ideal getaway from Vancouver. We are absolutely delighted with our choice to stay at Oak Bay Beach Hotel. The newly renovated property is beautiful, updated yet with many winks and nods at the past, thoughtfully included throughout the property. The staff were amazing, hospitable, genuine and always...

We were sad that there was nothing for our young son to do. We were even trying yo be very quiet in the pool. It seems like a great place to go as an adult for peace and serenity but I wouldn't bring my child back there again. Instead of the piano there in the front, it would have been... More

Took my 2 little kids here (age 4 & 6). We had an awesome time! The pool over looking the ocean was so beautiful! Saw otters playing in the ocean. Room is stunning. Can't beat the views. Restaurant was very good and kid friendly. Highly recommend this place for couples and families.

The hotel is beautiful with amazing views!, the rooms are decent with beautiful 5-star spa-like bathrooms, the pool is lovely. Unfortunately the service is lacking, although we did have interaction with a very good front desk staff for check in and check out (very efficient) and Lucas the Bell man was very helpful, the room service was laughable (and expensive...

This hotel certainly lives up to its expectations! The staff I must say are all incredible, from start to finish they were friendly, talkative, professional and extremely helpful. The free wifi and underground parking is a bonus and our car felt very safe located in the underground. We stayed on the Garden Floor with a ocean view. It was simply... More

The highlight of our 2-night stay at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel was definitely the outdoor hot pools. The 3 pools (1 large, 2 hot tubs) are open until midnight, so we enjoyed them at night while looking up at the stars. The hotel is right on the water and the grounds are beautiful. The rooms are very nice with... More

This place is one of the best hotels i have ever stayed, next time we go to Victoria we won't even bother looking for other hotels, everything brand new and great looking. Bed and pillows were really comfortable, the minerals pools area its amazing and really i have nothing negative to say about this place. Highly recommended.

The hotel is beautiful and the pool and hot tubs are fantastic. The rooms were beautifully appointed. I could live here with the nice kitchen and electric fireplaces in living room and bedroom. The king size bed was very comfortable but my daughter slept on the sofa bed not so comfortable. My only complaint of the room was the very... More
