The hotel is beautiful and the location couldn't be better. Unfortunately, the temperatures during our stay made our visit very uncomfortable as our room did not have air conditioning (of which we were not aware). Ceiling fans and requested room fans did little to help the impact of the heat (our room was on the 8th floor). Our view was... More

The man who checked me in was very unkind and short with me. It was my birthday and it was already a disappointing day with my husband not able to drive across with me on ferry because it was overbooked and then to be greeted like this at my hotel was too much. He didn't like that we had booked... More

We found this hotel on the Black Ball Ferry site as a package booking. It is a short walk (3 blocks) from the ferry dock. The room was immaculate and well stocked with kitchenette and bathroom supplies. there was delicious coffee provided for the AM with a french press coffee maker. The beautiful bar/restaurant/lounge area off the lobby was very... More

We stayed one night in The Oswego on our trip throughout Canada. Nice spacious room. We had a three personroom with one bedroom. Large bathroom and a balcony. Breakfast a la carte. The Ferry to port Angeles is very close. Victoria didn't make much impression. We read about lovely sunset celebrations, but no way..dull and quiet...

We found the Oswego using trip advisor and are very happy we made this choice. We travelled to Victoria with our two grandsons and booked the two bedroom suite at the Oswego hotel. A five minute walk to the harbour and the legislative buildings. A five minute drive to Fishermans Wharf and Beacon Hill Park. Many other attractions for kids... More

I stayed at the Oswego last month with my husband for a couple of nights on a business trip. The hotel itself is immaculate, well decorated, with exquisite attention to detail. The lounge / restaurant is wonderful and the service of the staff above average. It's wonderfully located within walking distance to everything. But unfortunately it was the worst sleep... More

I have stayed in many hotels in Victoria over the past 6 years. The Oswego has always been my choice of "home away from home". The service is wonderful and friendly, the cleaning staff through and amazing! Love the jazz night and restaurant serves up some pretty yummy dishes. Like I said, I have tried other hotels but always come... More

Beautiful rooms and great location in the city, for longer stays I love this hotel as the units come fully equipped with a kitchen pots pans etc. Very nice lounge on the ground floor, we did only have cocktails but great room.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Oswego Hotel during our recent trip to Victoria to support a family member in the Victoria Ironman 70.3 race. Because it was a family vacation, I was pleased to find a hotel that offered rooms with kitchens. Our group had 2 - 2 bedroom suites with 2 full bathrooms each and they... More

I stayed in a one-bedroom premium suite, which had a lovely view of the ocean and mountains. The suite was spotlessly clean, very spacious, nicely & modernly designed, and very comfortable. The bathroom (with both a shower and a bathtub) was great as was the highly equipped kitchen. Friendly hotel staff & good location. Despite no air conditioning, for me,... More

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed the suite and amenities. Victoria is currently having a heat wave and our temperatures do not normally get so hot and therefore it dosen't normally warrant air conditioning. All of our rooms have fans and the windows open. Being located in James Bay we also get a lot of... More
