We stayed at this hotel for three nights at the and of September and had a fantastic time. We upgraded to a suite on the 6th floor and it was well worth paying the extra. We had a lovely lounge area and kitchen and a fab bathroom. For such a large room it was a shame we didn't have a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in early September. The welcome was friendly and the location is fantastic as you are a few minutes walk from the parliament building (which incidentally is worth a trip in itself). We had a studio suite, the room was a good size and the kitchen perfectly functional (no oven though just a microwave). We... More

We (two couples) have just returned from a holiday in Western Canada in September 2014. We all feel that we must make a comment on Trip Advisor for the benefit of other travellers, to say that the Oswego Hotel was the best hotel we stayed in during our holiday. Everything was excellent in our opinions, the accomodation, the restaurant and... More

I was weary because of the price but the quality wasn't bad. There aren't really any amenities but the service is good and the suites are nice. All the suites here have kitchenettes if that's what you're looking for. There are floor to ceiling windows and balconies. The slate tile floors are not heated. The bed was nice and firm.... More

The Oswego is a great independent design style hotel. We stayed only two days, but this is a place you would feel at home staying for weeks. The positives: Friendly, educated and knowledagble staff throughout the hotel. Large rooms and comfortable rooms with great decor and ambience. Restaurant was great, dinner menu is excellent and it's great to see a... More

The Oswego is a spot to certainly consider when visiting Victoria, BC, whether for an overnite or a few days. The staff was delightful and helpful as well as professional. We had the good fortune of taking in dinner at the in-house Bistro and to have the pleasure of listening to jazz performer Maureen Washington during dinner. It made for... More
