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

It is so rare that a hotel these days, it seems, gets an experience right from start to finish. The Oswego delivers! My stay here was absolutely wonderful. They welcomed my pet, they had a deal where if you drrve a hybrid you park for free, and the room was stunning with kitchen supplies. Very friendly service from check in... 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

Unexciting but reliable and comfortable hotel not too far from the harbour---about a 5minute stroll. Good helpful and friendly check in. Not keen on having full kitchen facilities in a bedroom but some might like that.

Impressed as soon as we checked in. The premium suite is very modern, comfortable with wonderful view and close to downtown, worth the small additional cost . Full kitchens, bedroom with queen bed, a queen pullout. The staff are friendly and very helpful.

Spent 2 nights at this boutique hotel. It is in an excellent position, very handy for the harbour and town. The suite was spacious and very well appointed but rather warm. Could have done with a slightly bigger bed. The service was excellent in all departments. There are several good restaurants locally.
