“Great Stay and Great Harbour Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Very nice small hotel on the harbour in a prime location! We had come across from Vancouver on a bus on the ferry and the bus terminal (last stop) is only a short walk from the hotel (convenient if your luggage is on wheels).
We had requested a harbour view room when we booked and since it couldn't be guaranteed we were pleased to receive one. The rooms are your typical hotel room, clean and adequate and the decor is pleasant enough. There was a nice size TV on a dresser, desk w/chair, free wi-fi, bed and one occasional chair, bottled water provided, along with iron, ironing board, hair dryer and fan (no a/c) even an umbrella just in case. There is also a swimming pool which we enjoyed relaxing in one day, even though we didn't use it a lot it was lovely to have the option.
The staff was pleasant and helpful with our questions and requests.
We arrived on Canada Day and our location was only a few minutes walk to all the activities and fireworks. Also so convenient for sightseeing with access to the harbour and water taxis that can take you (among other places) to Chinatown if you don't feel like walking, also very close to the legislative grounds and the street corner there is the pick-up location to take horse-drawn-carriage rides. You can arrange bus tours to Butchard Gardens in front of the Empress Hotel but you have the option of taking a public transit bus (just $2.50 ea not including your admission fee to the garden of course).
We discovered that the weather was unusually warm during our 6 night stay and after the 2nd night we found our room with the lovely harbour view so uncomfortably warm that we requested a change to the city view side which was "much cooler" providing a much better nights sleep.
Both the hotel restaurant and lounge were very nice. Both are located on the harbour side of the building with both indoor and outdoor dining options, the lounge also had sliding glass to open it right up to the outside as well. No complaints about our menu selections, we had 2 breakfasts and 2 suppers there (might mention the taco salad was great both chicken and beef versions). The "only" negative thing I can say (and it's a real stretch) would be that there is no gift shop in the hotel (but if you are desperate for a "hotel gift shop" there are hotels on all sides and a couple of them have gift shops to check out).
All in all, our stay at this hotel was terrific and we would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: I'd recommend the fourth (top) floor. The harbour side is above the lounge and if you go to bed...

Stayed 3 nights. Quiet neighbourhood. Great location. Nothing negative to say about this hotel. Good ratio of Quality vs Rate. Would stay there again.

Nice little hotel right on the harbour front. Great location. Walking distance to most attractions and many restaurants in Victoria. 2 minutes walk to Legislator Buildings and 5 minutes to Information Centre. No AC but a fan is provided in room. Rooms are small but great for a good night sleep.We had a room facing the back of the hotel and it was quiet enough to leave window open all night long.The linen was abondent and very clean. Water bottles were provided as well as coffee in room. A large umbrella was in the room, we did not need it at the time of our visit but it was nice to know that if we needed it it was there for us.

My visit was not the best and no where near it. The room had an inch of dust on the fire alarm above the bed. The wall paper in the tiny bathroom was peeling off and the rusty switch plate was concerning. Due to no A/C we tried the fan in the room which blew black dust all over the room. Despite the better price and harbor view this is no a place I recommend.
