I am a regular visitor to the Rosewood and have been for years. There are a number of things that are important for the visitor to understand: 1. This is a combination of two older buildings joined together with a common eating area. It is expected that internal and external (street) noise will be an issue for many given its... More

This is our fourth stay here. The time before this was quite problematic but.... this time was great -again. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary this time so it had to be good. We were given the "Venetian" - "Honeymoon Suite". It is a very spacious and nicely decorated room with a huge jacuzzi tub - very nice. Everything was... More

Only bummer was the mandatory $200 for breakfasts we didn't want, since there are plenty of places to eat nearby. RCI had told me it was optional. We did eat there once, but neither of us liked mushroom omelets. The food was well prepared and served in a tea room between the 2 Edwardian houses in 2 shifts. 8am &... More

Their web-site advertises beautifully appointed rooms with period furniture -- suggesting an upscale bed & breakfast experience. WHAT A JOKE!!! Our room was below ground level, about 12' x 14' with discarded furniture from around 1970. The only 2 chairs had lost their stuffing, so sitting on them caused you to lose circulation in the back of your legs. The... More

We are truly sorry you were not satisfied with your experience. Most of our guests find that the age of Rosewood Victoria Inn is part of its charm. Each room has its own unique theme and colour scheme. The room that you stayed in before being upgraded was on the ground floor and approximately the same size as the other... More

Went for our 25th honeymoon. Upon arrival charged us $300.00 for meals although we were told they were included when we booked. They said it was RCI's fault but when I got back and checked with RCI they said meals were at their Rosewoods discretion and they had nothing to do with the meal charges. My wife is on a... More

We had a room with beautiful wallpaper, and shiny hardwood floors and a fireplace, but it was so dark in there we could not read. We requested exra light, and they brought us a small lamp, but it also had a very dim bulb and no table to sit it on. They did a great job on breakfast service, but... More

My husband and I enjoyed a recent one-week stay at the Rosewood Inn. This is a very lovely property located near the heart of Victoria. The staff was so friendly and very accommodating in every way. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast each morning. Victoria is a beautiful city and most areas are accessible by walking from the Rosewood Inn. We... More

This is a bed and breakfast. Delighful tea times and breakfast all included with our daily housekeeping fee. Although the first tea time they did not use real tea pots. Housekeeping could have been a bit better but the staff were very friendly and approachable. Wonderful meeting new friends over tea and breakfast. Shared balcony was kind of fun. Rooms... More

We have stayed at this quaint Inn three times now. That fact that we keep coming back is something positive. Location - it is only three blocks behing Victoria's Parliment building and the Inner Harbour. The common area inside and the rooms are highly decorated in Victorian style - nice. I booked this with my RCI points. You must pay... More

Hello Mr. Holmes, We really appreciate your comment as it shows that you know the true potential of the Rosewood Victoria Inn and would like to see the past quality of service maintained. As I explained to you, this is by far not the normal situation at the Rosewood and you can attest to this from your previous visits. We... More

I travel quite a bit for a living as did my wife, a former flight attendant. We've both seen lots of hotels and inns in America, Canada, England, Germany, and the Far East. This inn is cozy & charming, but not what we would call roomy or elegant. Most of the staff was nice (some, not so much), and they... More

Dear TheGarcipian, I am writing in response to your review on this site. I appreciate criticism as it helps us improve. I am the Innkeeper and I manage the Inn, but we are owned by a family who owns properties all over BC. I agree with you that the Inn is in need of a few upgrades and they are... More
