I only recently moved away from Victoria, and so was excited to stay in the Bedford Hotel recently on a visit as it always looked so charming and kitschy. Judging from other reviews on here there is quite a variation in room layout and cleanliness, due to the age of the hotel I'm guessing. In general the hotel is in... More

Quaint little hotel - very central location. We stayed on the top floor corner unit (2 queen beds) facing the main street. It can get a little noisy but the noise usually dessipates around 9 or 10 pm (minus the occasional drunken soul shouting down the street). Love the old school bathroom, as well as the corridor (the vibe reminded... More

While I do understand that this hotel is ancient looking, I was a bit disappointed in the general cleanliness. While walking up the stairs to my room, I looked over the front awning. It was quite disgusting. Along the hallways could have also done with a good cleaning. I used a Groupon or Living Social coupon, which stated a "superior"... More

If you are the type of traveler that is looking for all of the modern conveniences of an American Hotel chain, this is not the place for you. The hotel is charming and the staff is pleasant and helpful. The location is awesome and is centrally located for all of the tourist attractions. The building is old and the rooms... More

Stayed at the Bedford when in Victoria for the marathon. Most notable is the location for this hotel - it is in Government St., the local shopping avenue, which is also a few steps from the Inner Harbor. The hotel itself is historic, which means old but quaint. I loved it! The rooms are spacious and well appointed, the bedding... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights last week, having purchased a discount coupon online. It is quite an old hotel, very well located in the middle of Victoria's shopping area and close to the city's tourist attractions, and has been well renovated. While the lobby is very unimpressive, having at some time had half of its area cut... More

You could not get a better location than that of the Bedford Regency. It is in the heart of the sight seeing areas of Victoria and a 5 min walk to the inner harbour. We stayed there for three nights while attending a wedding. Do not expect frills or luxury. You get a reasonable size room which seemed clean and... More

Our stay was a gift from a niece who chose it from the website & photos. Our first surprise was trying to park for registration in front of the hotel. Only space for 2 small cars and for 10 mins only. Then was redirected to an underground parking 2 blocks down the road for a $12 a day fee. The... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Worst 3 night sleep of my life. Bed was very uncomfortable to the point where you could feel the springs. The lobby area was very dull and boring. The desk seemed to be stuck halfway down a hallway, not very inviting at all. No parking (which was not mentioned on Expedia) we had to drive... More

Positives - location! Right on central Government Street close to the harbour and to the main shopping streets. Lots of eating opportunities locally. Very reasonably priced. Rooms are "quaint" but most importantly the beds are very comfy. Negatives - can be a little noisy depending on which room you get because you are right in the centre of town. It's... More
