Although not the priciest or fanciest hotel we have been to, the staff were lovely and it was a very large room for the rate that was given! You really get a bang for your buck with this hotel. They even do complimentary upgrades for those on an anniversary if you let them know in advance, which includes a gorgeous... More

By far the best hotel we stayed in during our recent holiday in Canada. Location was great to allow exploring Victoria on foot, convenient for the harbour, shops and Fisherman's Wharf. We had a large room with sitting, dining areas and a kitchenette - handy to help cater for my diabetic husband. We also ate in the hotel restaurant one... More

We stayed for two nights and can't recommend this hotel highly enough. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was lovely, modern and comfortable. The showers were powerful and I even liked the shampoo. We had a suite, the kitchen facilities were fantastic, there was plenty of space for a table, four chairs and a sofa and armchair in... More

Our family - myself, my husband and our 8-month old daughter - stayed at the Oswego for 10 days in a one-bedroom suite. The hotel was in an excellent location, as we prefer to travel by foot while on vacation and we were able to get to the harbor and the city center without needing wheels (well, except for the...

The hotel is well located and and the room was a good size and came at a reasonable price. While we did not use it, the room had a very nice kitchenette and would seem to be a very convenient stay if someone intended to stay for a longer period. Only negative is that the rooms have inside upright air... More

My wife & I plus our 2 daughters stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom standard suite - it was fabulous, very spacious, beautifully decorated & furnished to a very high level. The hotel is in an excellent position, an easy flat walk to the centre of this lovely city. Highly recommended!

The hotel staff was extremely gracious in handling a snafu with our reservation. They were polite and timely in all their communications with us. If we visit Victoria again, we will certainly stay at the Oswego.

We always feel welcome here. We take our elderly Springer spaniel and there's a clean dog bed and cookies in the room for her. The only tip we might give this time is about room location. We asked for a low floor but our room was above the front entrance to the hotel. Very noisy in the evening but that... More
