I recently had a long term stay here and found this to be a lovely, charming hotel with incredible character.
My one bedroom suite was huge and gorgeous, with two storey ceilings, a large living/dining area, small kitchen and good bedroom. The kitchen was aged but still sufficient for my purposes. I also had a small patio out back. The only downside was that the walls are a little thin. That said, I had no issues with sleeping or otherwise being comfortable.
The building itself is gorgeous. There is a large restaurant with a good menu and an amazing collection of beers, many of which are made on site. They also have a small liquor store which sells a lot of their beers. Perhaps the best thing about this place is the live music every night.
The hotel is located on the edge of downtown Victoria so requires some walking to go some places. Nonetheless, the neighbourhood is very interesting with plenty of restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. Chinatown is also just around the corner.
If you have ever stayed in a hotel for more than a week you know the feeling of being cooped up or going stir crazy. That does not happen here! I truly felt like I was 'home' in my suite.
Free WiFi is a bonus.
Overall this is a superb property with lots of charm and interesting features. I would not hesitate to recommend it.
