We enjoyed a getaway close to home, and were impressed with every aspect of this charming hotel. Both the food and movie selection at the Dinner Theatre were wonderful. The pools are simply stunning; the best part about them was that the hotel encourages a peaceful, quiet atmosphere in and around the water. Such a treat! We headed over to... More

We were visiting Victoria for a wedding last week and stayed at the OBH. The hotel is beautiful with great amenities, the staff friendly but we found that when you get past the smiles and niceties, the service was left wanting. Some examples...unable to get a time for a spa appointment with no assistance for alternative times etc, car transfer... More

We LOVE this hotel! The rooms are fantastic! We opted for garden view and on our second stay we opted for the street view - both were awesome!! The prices are lower for the garden and street view than the ocean view however you can get enough ocean view from the mineral pool which is open 24/7!! The mineral pool... More

We spent two nights on the garden level of the hotel facing the bay.What a beautiful location for our 53rd wedding anniversary! Our room was more than we had expected, the service was excellent and the gardens and pools wonderful. We ate in the pub and hotel dining room several times and were served by several charming and attentive waiters.... More

Absolutely loved this hotel. Amazing service, comfy rooms. Free Mercedes rides to downtown, ten minutes away. Rolls Royce trip to airport $100. Mineral pool Oceanside was amazing. We flew up on Kenmore air by seaplane, best way from Seattle. Quick, great service, beautiful flight.

We found the Oak Bay Resort most accommodating to our family's needs. The reception staff were very friendly and assisted us in reserving an amazing whale watch. The mineral pools were warm and inviting and open all day- quiet atmosphere especially during the "whisper hours" after 9pm. If you want to have a nice tea in the area without going... More

We stayed for 1 night here with our 2 kids, and it was definitely worth the splurge. The mineral pool and hot tubs (which are open 24/7) are spectacular. And on a cool evening, the water in the pool is warm! I don't usually go in the pool, but the views of the ocean and the warmth of the water... More

Eye popping shuttle service in Victoria Harbor-a Rolls Royce! Terrific and attentive staff, particularly at the front desk. Nicely appointed room to be sure. Fantastic setting, overlooking the Cascade mountains and ocean. Wonderful spa. But, the dinner at the bar was virtual chaos, staff was overwhelmed. If one wanted to read a book by the pool in a quiet atmosphere,... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel Aug. 10 - 14, 2014. It was a great experience. I was attending a golf tournament at the Victoria Golf Club, which is across the street, so the location was ideal. The room I had was very specious and had a kitchen bar area. The spa/pool/fitness facilities were... More
