This review is waaay overdue. We stayed here back in July 2008 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Metro Suite during our first visit to Victoria. Steve was very helpful and provided us with a lot of great information. The suite was very well equipped (Better than a hotel). He even gave us some fruits and light breakfast - Very thoughtful gesture. Steve understands hospitality and service which is what gave us a great start to our Vancouver islands vacation. The place was very comfortable and clean as well as quite contemporary. From what I recall, the place was also very well located.
This was our first time trying out an independently owned vacation suite other than hotels and we would stay here again!
Tripadvisor doesn't seem to allow entering travel dates prior to a year and that is why I have stated March 2012 as the travel date.
