We had our family of four in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit in the top floor (lovely upgrade!). This is a first class property in a fabulous location. We did get a car for part of our visit to see some other areas of the island, but it would not be needed. The unit was beautiful, new and contemporary.... More

Just returned from a extended holiday and was very impressed with the location and the views of the mountains from our large room. Just five minutes walk took us to the harbour area where there was many activities. We particularly enjoyed the little water buses that took us to Fisherman's Wharf

We were on motorcycles, coming off the ferry in Victoria from Port Angeles after a long day's ride. From all we could see, Victoria is a very well run city, except that they forgot to put a traffic light at the ferry exit - so after about 15 minutes waiting for an opening in traffic, we just gunned our bikes...

I loved Victoria and especially this hotel. The room was beautiful, big, and it had a great balcony, with a nice view. It had a great big bathroom, like you were in a spa. They had cold water (in real glasses) and nice green apples downstairs waiting for you. I loved the kitchen and fridge. For the rest of our... More

Thank you for your wonderful review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed every aspect of your stay. The hotel was 100% full during your stay. We definitely try to accommodate guests that request early check in but, we also ask for understanding that with so many guests requesting this we are unable to honor all requests. Check out... More

My wife flew us up to Victoria on Kenmore Air for a surprise birthday weekend. She chose the Oswego Hotel based on a lot of research of hotels in the area. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly staff which made us immediately feel welcomed. The front lobby was well laid out with a nice contemporary style. Once... More

I chose the Oswego Hotel based entirely on all of the great reviews it got on Trip Advisor. And guess what, the 300 plus people that raved about it were not wrong! I knew that it would be the perfect place for us and it was. We had a one-bedroom suite on the top floor with a huge balcony with... More

Stayed here for one night in July. We booked it for the price, we weren't staying in Victoria long and decided to economize here on our holiday budget. It was a great room for the price we paid, we paid more in other places on our trip for rooms that were of the same quality. This hotel would be great... More

I loved our experience in Victoria as a whole, but the Oswego was 80% of it. The room was beautiful, big, had a balcony, the biggest washroom I've seen in a hotel- spa-worthy. They had cold water and apples downstairs waiting for you. There were wireless issues and the parking was around $20 a night. Our first concierge experience was... More

We stayed at TOH as part of a Clipper vacation package (I'll review them as well but suffice to say we were very pleased). The location is the perfect balance of convenience to the downtown but far enough away to be quiet. Upon arrival we were offered a $25 a night upgrade to a high floor bay view. If you... More

Stayed here in June, and were really impressed with what we got. Essentially a large bedroom with balcony, sofa bed with pull out bed in the living room, kitchen open plan with the living room, nice bathroom - all very spacious. Not just a hotel, more somewhere to live if you needed it! all plush and nice and modern, very... More
