We were lucky to be upgraded to a one-bedroom suite and were delighted to find a personal note and delicious chocolates from the manager in our room. The kitchen was well appointed, the bathroom spacious with a lovely soaker tub and the bed very comfortable. Everything was spotless and I couldn't believe how quiet it was for a Friday night...

Awesome little boutique hotel. Quiet location, friendly staff, great attention to detail. Very clean room, comfy beds. Conveniently located near our favorite restaurant Pagliacci's. Within walking distance to everything, even in the rain. Very reasonably priced for what you get.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in March while travelling on business. A great place to come and unwind after all day meetings. Service is excellent. The view was wonderful. My only request would be to have room service available before 7am. Looking forward to staying here again in the future.

I was very impressed with the Oswego hotel, so much so that it will be our new go-to whenever we are in town. Fantastic location - 2 blocks away from the harbour and the Parliament building. It's walking-distance to the main attractions and yet tucked in a quiet suburbian neighborhood, away from the hustle and bustle. The location also allows... More

We appreciate your review and also your positive points about staying at the Oswego. Yes we are located on the quieter side of the inner harbor and closer to the ocean. like yourselves many of our guests enjoy being close to everything but also the residential feel by being located in James Bay. Apologies with regards to the internet which... More

We had such an excellent time staying here last June. It was the little things that added up to a wonderful weekend in Victoria. The staff was terrific, and the rooms had everything I could have asked for (and more). This has been my best hotel experience by far. Thank you all for making it such a wonderful stay!

We appreciate the accolade that you have given us! The team strive to give our guests an exceptional stay. Attention to detail is prevalent. All of our suites have queen size beds in them so unfortunately no kingszie beds. Come back and visit us again so we can continue to deliver great service and standards that you have encountered previously. More

Very nice studio suite with a kitchen. Good access to the ferry and downtown. I was traveling solo with my 6 year old son, so having a kitchen is always a bonus for meals in the room and the refrigerator. Staff at the front desk was very nice and accommodated us with early check-in when we arrived at noon. My... More

We really enjoyed our time at this hotel, though brief. We were there on Business but with our four children tagging along. We had a lovely two bedroom suite and the kitchen was just lovely. The staff were friendly. We had some issues with check in, but it wasn't a big deal and they smoothed it over. Wish we could... More

Awesome place to stay. Super close to downtown and very easy to get a cab if you don't feel like walking. Staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are amazing. Easy to find a place to park!

Stayed a week in premium 1 bedroom suite. Spacious room, clean and neat kitchen. Wonderful stay. Except that when we checked out, the hotel simply added the daily charge for extra "adult" based on the "observation" of the housekeeping team,.instead of reconfirming with us in advance that if there is third person staying with us, and is it an adult,...
