I got a good price so booked without researching very much. I knew it had parking and was within driving distance of everything I wanted to do. Upon arriving I was shocked at how beautiful the grounds were. And I am here in December! I can only imagine in summer. The Inn itself was also beautiful. It an old building... More

My daughter and I arrived late in the evening. We had called ahead to advise them of this, and a super friendly staff member (sorry I can't remember her name) was there to welcome us, check us in and help us with our luggage. Our room was beautiful and so comfortable. Our only regret was that we were basically just... More

I'm reviewing this as a traveller, not as a wedding-related guest. Let me start by saying that I really loved this inn, which is quite small (15 rooms or so). It feels like staying in an Edwardian English country house - with its charms and its challenges. I am very happy to go back again. Overall, this character property has... More

July 25th, 2014 my husband and I were married at the English Inn. It truly was magical!! So many things to rave about. The ceremony in the beautiful sunken garden, the signature drinks on the patio while we had our photos done (and what a place to take wedding photos) and then the perfect intimate reception. We had the 14... More

We really enjoyed staying here, if only for the ambiance of a small inn with atmosphere, not a box hotel. I am not sure how my sister found it through an internet search, and perhaps we would have preferred a place right around the inner harbor rather than a ways away. But we were not familiar with the area enough... More

The English Inn is located in a residential sector of Esquimalt, which is one of Victoria’s adjoining bedroom municipalities. During my five-day stay I noticed almost all guests were 20 – 30 something couples. There were no families and precious few business types, for reasons that soon became obvious. The Inn is situated on a large plot of land that... More

My daughter and son in law recently held their wedding at the English Inn. We all stayed at the inn for the week before and for the event. I was so impressed with every detail of the experience that I felt compelled to write this review. Where to begin? Staff. Heather was in front of every detail with suggestions, solutions,... More

My husband and I wanted to take a small trip and couldn't find the right hotel to stay in. I saw the English inn so I googled it and read some reviews that weren't the greatest. So I called the hotel and spoke to Heather and asked her her input on these reviews. She assured me that we would not... More

We stayed at the English inn for just one night and were very pleased we chose this quiet, tranquil place! We had room #1 with a large king bed, a gorgeous bathroom with a claw tub/shower, a nice cozy tv/reading area, and an amazing balcony that overlooked the immaculate grounds and also had a small view of the ocean! The... More

Loved the old world charm of this Inn! The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The grounds are great to explore on your own or as a romantic stroll with your loved one. We can't wait to go back for another visit!
