We stayed for 2 nights and found it very enjoyable. Our room unfortunately had a view of only another building but the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom required a slightly better cleaning but otherwise OK. The location was perfect and the staff friendly. I recommend the onsite restaurant, the food is spectacular. They were understaffed but the manager was... More

As others have said, a very conveniently situated hotel next to the Paerliament building. We were pleasantly surprised to find our room had a 4 ring cooker, microwave and 'fridge. Very useful with the temperature above 30 deg most of the time in July. Also, the aircon could be set to low overnight and was virtually silent. Staff very helpful,... More

I booked this hotel with airline points, and it turned out to be wonderful. It was conveniently located across the side street from the Parliament Building, and one block off the Inner Harbor. We could walk to almost any place in Victoria from our hotel. The place was very clean--room, entrance, restaurant. We were also just a few blocks from... More
