Really well-positioned for us as it is on the Inner Harbour and very near the departure point for the Victoria Clipper to Seattle, our next stop. We enjoyed our stay here even though it felt like a slightly tired and quaint old motel with vintage fittings. At times the breakfast room felt like an old folks home. Free wifi good also bikes available. Room spacious with kitchen and two beds and a useful bathroom lobby area. As we were on the ground floor it felt a bit vulnerable as there were so many windows and doors, but seemed to be quite safe. Staff very helpful and friendly, made it seem more personal. Breakfast included, a pity no cereal.
Towels a bit small and thin and bathroom taps fiddly to use eg push and pull on the hand basin. Shower curtain tended to wrap itself round you when having a shower, a pet hate, but the shower itself was good.
Lots of options to walk along the harbour pathways eg to Fisherman's Wharf and Ogden Point or through town to the Songhees and West Bay and get a taxi boat back to Fisherman's Wharf for $5 each.
A tip - if you are not driving and need to get from the airport try the express public transit bus, changing at McTavish. It's a bargain at $2.50 if the timing suits you, and it brings you all the way to Belleville St.

Thank you for your review. If a younger crowd is reading your review, maybe this will add a mix to the demographics in our breakfast living room :) We are delighted to welcome all ages. Babies are especially fun.

We are pleased you liked so many things we offer; our location so close to the clipper plus all the major attractions and walking paths. Your commuting suggestions are excellent. The harbor ferry taxi is great fun, and wonderful when you just want to get back home to relax. Taking the local bus is a great idea, especially if you do not get the express and it winds through the picturesque back country roads. It is a sight seeing opportunity for sure. Sometimes you can even enjoy a Double Decker bus. It would be nice to see you again soon.
