We had 3 nights at this hotel in a quaint room with a huge bathroom and despite being on the ground floor was remarkedly quiet. It is walking distance to all the sights.Restaurant is good value. Staff were very helpful as I had phone problems and directed me to a small store who resolved the problems. Only moan, no tea... More

My father and I stayed in the family room for two nights. It's a great price for a room that feels like two. The hotel is old and historical. When we went on a carriage ride, it actually stopped in front of the James Bay Inn and talked about it's history. There is a gorgeous old victorian across the street,... More

From check in to check out, the staff at this inn are fabulous: helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The room was all you would want in a city where you are busy all day. The coffee in the lobby is excellent and available at early bird hours.....the café and pub are good - prices are competitive and service is great. The... More

We were showing our New Zealand friend CANADA and so delighted that we chose this awesome hotel. She was most impressed and called it Stunning. They have done a great job of decorating everything, every nook and cranny was a Kodak moment. We took photos everywhere, even the halls were special. We enjoyed the Antique furniture, carpets, all the lovely... More

Stayed here for a couple of days in September 2014 on a visit to Victoria and the Island. Wonderful heritage charm. The room is basic but very worth the reasonable price and the location is just minutes from the harbour. The pub downstairs was great after a day of sightseeing.

I was in a large suite/ part of a house next door with massive of room and a full kitchen! This was clean and comfortable particularly the... More

Great quaint hotel. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the street traffic and horse drawn carts. Easy walking distance to the inner harbor attractions, Parliament and museums. Walking in the other directions leads to delighful homes, gardens, Beacon Hill Park and the views from Dallas Road. The pub and cafe on premises both have good ambiance and food. Easy... More

I really didn't want to stay at this place but I left booking too late and the rate at other hotels was just way to high. My husband and I were very surprised. This has to be the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in (just stayed at the Pan Pacific in Whistler and there was no comparison). James Bay... More

Did an overnighter with my partner and had a great stay. Expectations were well managed from other reviews. If you are looking for a 4-star plus boutique with top-notch facilities and amenities, this is not the place. It is rustic, quaint and meant to be so. I would "guesstimate" it was built more than 100 years ago and has some... More
