My husband and I stayed at the OBBH for my birthday - and it was first rate. There is no better pool and hot tub(s) in North America - guaranteed. The hotel regularly hosts movies, theatre shows and advanced screenings (Downton Abbey for instance) and so we were able to enjoy a very nice cocktail reception and dinner as well.... More

This stay was a highlight - such a beautiful setting, the room was spacious and really lovely. The bath was fantastic, beds very comfortable. The hotel food was really lovely - there was a pub on site as well as restaurants. Breakfast was huge (and included in the package) and beautiful. The staff really helpful. The hot tubs and pool...

The room was lovely, large, comfortable, top notch clean, definitely worth the money. Lots of good eating options from fancy to casual. A great place to meet friends in front of a huge fire with very comfortable seating. Free parking underground. A secure and comfortable home away from home. The staff was friendly and helpful. Thank you!

The Oak Bay Beach Hotel is top notch in our experience - large rooms, clean, quiet, comfortable - and with all the amenities we were looking for. The food was wonderful. The setting fabulous. The list could go on. Without hesitation, this will be the hotel we book when we visit Victoria.

Large comfortable rooms. Everything is brand new and spotlessly clean. Hotel restaurant served great food. Oceanfront setting with the mineral pools is magical. Very reasonably priced for Victoria. Free parking and internet was a nice bonus. We never used the concierge but one was available. I've stayed in many hotels in Victoria lately and this is the best.

We've stayed at the "old" Oak Bay Beach Hotel, and always loved our stay. This was our first visit in the "new" OBBH. A wonderful hotel, no longer quaint, totally different from the old one...but, still a great place to stay. Excellent. We didn't eat in the restaurant because the "Snug"...the bar/pub..is where we have always had our meals. A... More

We visited Oak Bay Beach Hotel in Sept, 2014 and it was stunning. Simply, and without qualification, stunning! Our room ("Ocean Panoramic View") was exceptional -- super-comfortable bed; large bathroom with all amenities including heated floor; balcony with table & chairs.

One night at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel, and we truly feel we escaped the city. From the point of entry to the check out, the staff was pleasant, respectful, helpful and went above and beyond to ensure our experience was optimal.
