Not sure who was welcomed more...Our dog or us. Fantastic friendly service, very clean and close to downtown. They even had dog bowls and a bed for our furry friend. I would go back again with no question.

We are lucky to live in beautiful Victoira, BC and my hubby and I decided to have a stay in our hometown weekend. Oswego is located in a great part of town, the staff were friendly and welcoming. Being a boutique hotel it is classy and small but still has a great lounge and restaurant. The rooms are the best!... More

The Oswego checks off all of the boxes for a convenient and hassle free stay. A mini kitchen to reheat restaurant leftovers, comfortable beds, awesome bathrooms, great restaurant and decent (if little) gym. Breakfast room service is normally priced (eggs juice and coffee for $10) rather than the usual inflated hotel priced food. I stayed in the least expensive room... More

I've been at the hotel as a long stay guest for 4 months. Note: The old houses kitty corner to the hotel are being torn down and construction starting Feb. 24. If you are noise sensitive then keep this in mind for the coming months. Note: The hotel is very dog friendly. Definitely ask for a pet free room if... More

This contemporary boutique hotel is tucked into the charming James Bay neighbourhood. You are within steps of all the traditional venus that you would want to visit while you are in Victoria. Plus you have the luxury of sipping you're morning coffee on the sun dappled Bistro patio while listening to the sounds of bird song mixed with the clop... More

We stayed at the Oswego in February 2015 in order to help a friend who was about to have surgery in Victoria. The hotel gave him and his wife a special rate because of that. They also provide guests a 20% reduction on food purchased in their 'Bistro' , which makes excellent meals! We will certainly stay there again. It... More

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and loved the location, the underground parking, the very friendly and helpful reception staff and the happy hour cocktails! The hotel is on a quiet residential street a very short walk away from the inner harbour and plenty of restaurants and bars. The room was really well equipped with a small balcony and... More

Wow, incredible price point for a very new, modern hotel. Even though it is off season, I was still very surprised to get such a nice hotel room. Usually for $90 or so, you are getting an older Best Western or Holiday Inn, etc. This is a quaint, boutique hotel in a fantastic location in Victoria. Alyssa at the front... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are very pleased for the positive words. Yes from time to time in the off season we have specials or reduced rates. Victoria is much slower in hotel occupancy in the winter months and we try to pass that onto our hotel guests by offering them competitive rates.... More
