It may not be the most up-to-date hotel, but the vibe is awesome. The moment you step into the lobby , it suddenly feels like a blast from the past. The room I slept in had a crooked floor and outdated furniture, which I found incredibly charming regarding the fact that it is the oldest and still-standing hotel in Victoria.... More

What a shame; this hotel was definitely below average, despite having the potential to be excellent. The hotel is located only a short walk from the central waterfront area, which was our primary reason for choosing it. The room was very dated, although relatively clean. The bathroom was poor, the pipework noisy, the reception staff not particularly helpful, and the... More

On arrival, I was very warmly greeted and told it was my lucky day as I had a free upgrade! Delighted! I have to say the room was ok, nicely decorated, looking out at a brick wall with a fan from the local restaurant running all the time, but it was ok, I just dread to think what I would... More

After carefully looking at many hotels online we decided on this one because it is a decent location and the pictures made it look amazing and romantic. Upon arrival we were told the staff did something special for us for our honeymoon, nope there's nothing special about the room so not sure what that's about! Besides that the lights won't... More

Good service, older but comfortable rooms and great free breakfast. The waffles are a great start to the day. Free internet which shouldn't be a surprise but spent almost $300 for a fancy room in Vancouver and they wanted another $17/day for internet plus $1.25 per local call. This was a good choice for us. Right smack downtown as well... More

Stayed overnight with my teenage cousin for some downtown "girl time" together. Check-in was quick and friendly, and we received a complementary upgrade from a regular 2-bed room to a suite with a king bed/pullout couch. The suite was very nice, spacious and clean with a bedroom separated by quite heavy glass doors (great for when you are sharing with... More

Because we checked in later, we were supposed to have a basic room but got an upgrade. The outside of the hotel is less than impressive but the room we got was amazing. It was spacious and decorated nicely. But it was a room facing the street and there is a bar across the street, through the windows we could... More

Once a lovely hotel, now a bit bedraggled, but the staff was so helpful. Gave excellent recommendations for restaurants and a super afternoon tea experience!! Parking is available right next to the hotel (we did not use it as no we had no vehicle). Located on Yates just two blocks from the main thoroughfare, Government Street. Shopping available in the...

We stayed on 4-6 July as it was on a wedding accommodation list as well situated and good value. The room was old fashioned which I do not mind and fairly basic. Self service breakfast was adequate but no more. However for such basic dated accommodation we were charged Can$550 which is a rip off. My brother and his wife... More
