This is a nice little boutique property. Probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. It is within walking distance to the Victoria Clipper and close to other restaurants. Nice little kitchen in the room. The restaurant was quiet and had a limited menu but the appetizers were tasty.

The staff at the front desk are very friendly and helpful. I checked in with a trainee upon arrival, and she was very friendly. The room is spacious and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking. I rate it as a five star.

We have just returned to Calgary from having spent the month of April in Victoria at the Oswego Hotel. A stay of that length allows for a sense of the property that goes beyond the superficial. Its convenient location to all of Victoria's inner city activity is reason enough to stay there, but the always helpful and pleasant attitude of... More

We stayed two nights in a one bedroom suite. It was a quiet area. The suite was very clean and had everything we might need. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had dinner in the bistro and it was excellent. It is only two blocks from the Clipper Ferry so it was an easy walk from the dock.... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a studio and the location was excellent. It was a quiet area. The hotel is new and clean with a kitchenette. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Undercover parking and wifi were complimentary. The only criticism is the portable air conditioner in the room meant the blind did not close fully. This type of... More

Thank you for staying with us. Upon reading your review about the room type you stayed with us in - this was a studio suite without a balcony.

Our stay in a studio apartment was perfect, service was beyond expectations. Amanda, the young lady who welcomed us on our arrival provided us with a map of suggested eateries and tourist venues which we tried most of them. Nothing was too much trouble for her to assist, even booking a hire car. Thanks Amanda, you should be a travel... More

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.
