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

I must say Bedford Regency's downtown location on Government is wonderful. It is half way before the so-called true downtown of Victoria and the other half of downtown (say down to Yates and Chinatown). If you just walk town one street, you can catch a bus either downtown or towards the Butchart Garden location. If I remember correctly, there is... More

Other than location, I look for three things in a hotel. Safe, clean, and quiet. The Bedford had a great location, and it was safe. It wasn't exactly dirty, but everything just felt really old and dated, and not in a charming way. The bed linen and towels were immaculate, which I guess is the most important thing, but doors...

The Bedford Regency certainly has location going for it! You couldn't ask for a more central hotel, right in the middle of shopping, restaurants and pubs. We took the ferry over from Port Angeles, didn't bring the car, so having everything within walking distance was great..then again most of the tourist side of Victoria is :-) The hotel is old...

The Bedford regency is literally in the middle of all the shops, pubs and fun of Victoria. I read many reviews on the Bedford from really bad to great. Our experience was awesome. Our room was ready when we arrived and we were given a room that I requested through email. We went to our room which was very clean... More
