We have stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is situated in the centre of Victoria, in a quiet street. The breakfast and coffee are delicious and the staff is very friendly! The only point we did like less was there is no airco: fortunately we had a room on the 8th floor so we could open the... More

The hotel was conveniently located between ferries, Fisherman's wharf and harbor area. Everywhere was within easy walking distance. Our suite felt more like an apartment than a mere room. The suite was beautifully decorated and had full amenities. We will stay there again.

Booked as part of a Victoria clipper package from Seattle. 2 blocks from the ferry. Thrifty grocery is a short walk in James bay. Bed was a little mushy. Would love a firm bed in a hotel someday! Nice room layout with kitchen living and separate sleeping spaces. Wifi was terrible. So slow and frustrating. We wanted to follow soccer... More

Why would anyone stay anywhere else in Victoria. Perfect location. Elegant and quiet. Plus good food. We recently took a Victoria Clipper package. Oswego was one of the hotel choices. Upon arrival we upgraded to a suite at a very reasonable rate. Unless you need a large pretentious fancy hotel with a huge lobby, stay here.

I booked through Clipper Vacations and came with two girlfriends. We had a one bedroom suite... Full kitchen! We enjoyed our stay, were within a short walking distance to everything, staff was friendly and helpful! We loved the water available as soon as we entered the lobby! We all slept well... Sleeper sofa was comfy too. Would stay again and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on a recent visit to Canada, this really is one of the best for the money. Angela on reception was extremely helpful when we messed up our booking and sorted out everything.

My husband and I stayed here with our 10month old and booked a one bedroom suite. The room was very nice and well equipped with full kitchen and a spacious bathroom with both bath tub and walk in shower. The down side is that the rooms are incredibly bright and all they have are flimsy blinds which do very little... More
