I booked this because of the Living Social promotion. $149 for 2 nights in an Oceanview Room, $50 spa credit, and $10 restaurant credit. This hotel was hard to get weekend dates in this entry level category because of this promotion. Therefore you’re offered a $75 per night room upgrade. I noticed rooms in the Oceanview category were still available,... More

Just boarding the ferry back to Vancouver and wanted to take the time to write a review. I purchased 2 nights for $179 which included a $100.00 spa certificate, (sun-thurs only) on travel zoo, what an incredible deal. I can't wait to go back. The location, spa, pool, steam and fitness centre was amazing ( treadmills and bikes looks over... More

We met a friend here for lunch and what a delight!! Excellent food. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff and a beautiful view. The waitress was attentive and knew about the menu items and also was able to recommend an excellent local wine--Pinot Gris from Beaufort wineries. We will definitely return!

We visited our son and daughter in law and her family in Victoria, BC, arriving in Vancouver Island on 26th December, 2012. After the hustle and bustle of Christmas at home and then having been brought 'down' by the dreaded bug that had been swooping through North America, we thought a short break with a day of skiing at Mt...

I've been to Kingfisher several times in the past but not for a couple of years. The spa and restaurant is fabulous. Staff are great and the food is amazing. Had a great facial by Dee who was great. The Hydropath is always nice. My only not so great comment is that the Oceanview room and the relaxation areas in... More

Not pretentious, but welcoming and comfortable - I love this place. We have been visiting for years and it still tops my list of favourite ways to spend a weekend. Service scores the highest marks. All staff were friendly at the front desk, the spa, and the dining room. Room service lunch came on warmed plates and prices were very... More

The staff were truly wonderful! The setting is tough to beat too. We didn't get to enjoy the spa but we did have fabulous tasty breakfast! The rooms have carpet and are a bit worn and in need of love/upgrade.

The eagle suite on the second floor is the best suite in this hotel. The wrap-around windows allow for unparalleled ocean views. Because it has almost west-facing windows, you can enjoy sunsets right from the dining and living rooms. Booking this room makes an already great stay at the Kingfisher even better. We especially liked the large entrance and deck.

Thank you so much for your review viagirl, and for posting those amazing photos of the views from the Eagle Suite. We do have an amazing location and our views continue to take my breath away even though I get the wonderful opportunity to see them daily. We look forward to welcoming you back soon and hope you will continue... More

We got a great deal on this hotel by booking online at a discount, about half off the normal advertised rates (probably because it was off-season). We had to check in a bit late, but there was still a front desk clerk on staff. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had a second-story room--no elevator for the portion of the... More

Having been here many times ...both with girlfriends and family...I have found my stay at the Kingfisher to be overall a pleasant experience. There have been times where it has been less than satisfactory (i.e. dumpster container blocking our ocean view room, hydropath in disrepair) but other parts tend to make up for it. The restaurant is ALWAYS amazing and... More
