We visited Victoria via Harbour Air stayed overnight and returned via Ferry to Vancouver. All the bookings were done via Viator. This worked out better for us than the "Tour" offered by the Tour operators. As the return ferry ticket was open it allowed us to make the return in daylight. We loved Victoria and the location of Helms Inn... More

Came here to do the West Coast Trail and stay in Victoria afterwards for a few days. Close to city bus, that goes straight to airport. West Coast Express bus also close. Food, harbour, museum, pubs, shops, everything within close range. Great for walking around. Rooms are nice and clean and come with their own complete kitchen. Sofa beds for... More

Small - but cozy Hotel - older, but well maintained - people very helpful - extraordinary service, willing to go the extra mile. Great location - just across from the Park. Not far from Government Street. Will go again. Great value.

After traveling to Victoria many times, I came across this great Inn. My room was perfect. Away from street, pleasant staff and a great value for the $$$! A gorgeous, enormous park is across the street, Beacon Hill. My room was spotless and charming!

If you want very good, clean accommodation that is centrally located then stay here. It is right by the beautiful harbour and on the edge of the town - all so very pretty. There is a private car park for Helms Inn - just 5 dollars a night. Our apartment had a settee and adequate cooking facilities to make a... More

We stayed here for two nights whilst on a road trip. The location was excellent, you could walk with ease to many locations in Victoria's centre. We stayed in 206 Mount Royal block and it had everything we needed. Clean, comfortable, nice siting area, comfortable bed and a small kitchenette. There was only one problem, on the second night we... More

I have stayed here twice in the last few years and am never disappointed in my room. For under $125.00 you can get a king suite that is super. Lots of granite, a kitchen, SAT. TV, safe etc, etc. Many of the poor reviews are for the inexpensive rooms on the lower floors or other, older buildings, but if you... More

We requested a quiet room and that is exactly what we were given, at the back on the third floor of the main building. A very spacious, clean, well set up room with a great kitchen with a granite bench top and matching tiled floor and walls and an extremely comfortable bed and pillows. We stayed for 3 nights and...
