We loved our two night stay at this hotel. The studio room was light, airy and spacious, and had more of a chic apartment feel about them than a hotel room. The kitchenette had more than enough equipment to allow you to cook whatever you wanted. We had a view of the Parliament building dome from our balcony. The coffee... More

The Oswego hotel was really clean, with a large bathroom, separate shower and reasonable sized bedroom, separate to the lounge / dining room that was part of the full suite. A small balcony gave nice views (if not spectacular). Location is quiet and only 10 min walk from the Harbour Front, several options for eating are nearby. The hotel had... More

We arrived off the Clipper, a short 2 blocks from the harbour to this gem of a hotel. The front desk had advised that it was an easy walk except in foul weather. What a pleasant and helpful group of staff. We had 5 nights of impressive service. This is what makes for a really relaxed and pleasurable stay in... More

We stayed 2 nights in September 2014 and the experience was first class. The room was superior and the three of us were extremely pleased with everything about it. The location was great and very close to the harbour (just a few minutes walk). The staff were helpful and friendly. The kitchen facility in the room was excellent and very... More

We stayed 2 nights and found the staff to be really engaged and helpful with quick deliveries of room service and housekeeping items. The front desk staff acknowledged us every time we walked by and the bellman/doorman was ever-helpful with directions and greetings. The room was spotless and in excellent condition. The kitchen equipment and appliances were new and clean.... More

Our suite had a complete kitchen - full sized refrigerator and a stove! Beautiful bathroom with separate tub and shower enclosure. The location was nice, about three blocks from the harbor. We had two problems - no A/C meant we had to keep the windows and sliding glass door open at night and the room was just too warm for... More

Thank you for your online review about your recent stay with us. We have had an unusually warm summer this year in Victoria. We do not have air conditioning in the suites however each suite has ceiling fans and all doors and windows open. Being located in the quiet residential side of the Inner Harbour the cool ocean breeze normally... More

This hotel is within walking distance to everything you will want to see while in Victoria. The harbour, the museum, the empress hotel, Fan Tan Alley etc. The hotel room is a suite. We stayed in a two bedroom which was bigger than my daughter's condo in Mississauga, Ontario. Fully appointed kitchen and beautiful bathrooms. One with a stand up... More

I booked a 1 bedroom premium suite last minute as an engagement getaway. We found the service to be prompt and professional, and were very pleased with the room. The kitchen was a nice touch, lots of attention to detail and waking up to a panoramic view of the ocean and mountains made it truly special. As mentioned by other... More
