Wow! This place is located across the street from the Empress and overlooking the harbor from about 2 blocks away. It's also just a short walk from the ferry which we found very convenient. We absolutely loved the historic "old gentleman's club" charm of this place with the amazing woodwork throughout. The reading rooms were fantastic and we could have... More

We stayed three nights at the Union Club in Victoria on the occasion of a family wedding. We had two nights in a single room and one night in a suite. The Union Club is celebrating its 125th year, 101 of those years at its current location in downtown Victoria. Despite its stately age the rooms and amenities are modern... More

One of the oldest, still beautiful buildings in lovely downtown Victoria, I had had occasion to dine there once a few years ago, as a guest of the Lieutenant Governor Stephen Pointe (ok, there were about 30 other guests, too, but still, it was an honour). I was delighted to discover that this private club has a few hotel rooms... More

What a great venue for our annual MahJongg Retreat!! We all agree there isn't a better choice than our own private club: a luxurious suite to set up our tiles for hours of uninterrupted play; excellent food and drink choices from the McGregor Room lunch and dinner menus and the club wine list; such comfortable bedrooms to eventually retire to;...

Overall, we enjoyed out stay. The facility is very grand, but the actual rooms are outdated and could use a freshening up. The service was good and the included breakfast was terrific. Would likely stay here again, given the reasonable price compared to the Fairmont next door.

I enjoyed the history of your hotel, although the building was built way more than a century ago - but managed to keep up and have maintained in such an excellent state. Front desk people are friendly, place is very clean.

We were very pleased with our newly rennovated queen suite. As with all of our Canadian affiliate private clubs, the food and service was outstanding. Breakfast was included with a full menu choice. I loved having a fitness center on my floor. We also used the complimentry laundry.A perfect location in downtown Victoria on the harbour!!!

Wonderful property with history. Excellent location, comfort very reasonable for a traditional property. We had an excellent breakfast and felt our room rate was very competitive for the room size and location. Would always return and recommend to adult travelers.
