“Nothing I could complain about!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Nice big rooms, central location, and the spa is a convenient well-priced option. The mints and turn down service were nice additions! The mini bar was very reasonably priced as well. Quick, efficient check in and check out.

Lovely boutique hotel located in the heart of the city. My 6th floor corner room had a view of the inner harbour. Staff were very welcoming. The chocolates, apples, and Aveda toiletries were appreciated after a long day of meetings. The continental breakfast had a limited selection, but was an adequate start to the day.

We just spent three nights at the Magnolia and were thoroughly impressed. We stayed in a 7th floor room which had a fireplace and beautiful views of the harbour. We enjoyed watching the sunset each night! The bed and pillows were beyond comfortable.

The breakfast was free and fabulous...much better than a typical continental...included basic omelettes, very delicious muffins, fruit smoothies, waffles with many toppings, etc.

The service was always great...from the valet parking, the front desk and housekeeping. They did little things like one staff person saw we were about to walk up to the elevator and she was walking by so she pressed the button.

There were a couple of glitches...housekeeping missed us one day and then on another day we didn't receive turndown service but we called the front desk and they sent housekeeping immediately and when we told them about turndown they gave us a handful of chocolates that you usually receive at turndown.

I enjoyed a facial at the spa which was great. As for the new hotel restaurant, the menu looked great but we already had reservations other places. We did order the flourless chocolate cake one night and it was absolutely delicious.

The location of the hotel is outstanding...right downtown but on a very quiet street.

Overall a great experience!

Room Tip: 7th floor includes fireplaces...get one facing the harbour for a wonderful view!

Excellent location, service, and breakfast is included with your stay. Comfortable rooms and walking distance to central harbour. Also close to some good restaurants in the area. Central but away from the noisy crowded tourist area. They recently upgraded the rooms as well. A little more expensive than others but well worth it!!

We (couple) came up from the U.S. for a couple of nights, and were looking to stay in a fairly nice location. The Magnolia had a deal going on for some of their recently redone rooms - and considering what we got for the price, I'd say it was a steal. The rooms are immaculately well-designed, and the amenities are excellent. Not to mention the beds were beyond comfortable, and we had a view over downtown all the way to the bay. The front desk staff were extremely kind and helpful, and detailed a bunch of exciting things to do in Victoria during our stay. The breakfast was delicious as well. Honestly, I have no complaints whatsoever about this place. My only regret is that we didn't have the time to get some spa treatment next door - I would recommend treating yourself if you stay here! But the hotel is a pretty nice treat itself.

Room Tip: The refresh deal going on has rooms for about 50 dollars cheaper than normal - a great value!

Stayed here back in March. Have to say you can't get a better location. Right from when we checked in literally every staff member we encountered was friendly and courteous. The rooms were nice and clean. It was nice that breakfast was included but it wasn't anything special. Either way great place to stay, highly recommended and there are apples everywhere!

My wife and I stayed in Victoria after a few days in Seattle. We took the ferry over which arrived in the morning, and the Magnolia staff were able to honour our early check in request. The hotel is nice and clean. We had a suite which was a great size and had good seating area for relaxing. Nice view of the Parliament buildings from our corner room. The attached restaurant was closed so we did not get a chance to try it. But there are lots of great restaurants close by so we had a great visit. Would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Pick a suite ... lots of room and nice views

Dear T K,

Thank you for your recent visit with us at The Magnolia. We appreciate the kind feedback about your visit.

I am pleased that we were able to accommodate your early check in request following your ferry ride from Seattle. I'm glad also your view was enjoyed from the corner rooms, offering exceptional views of the Victoria Harbour.

You'll be pleased to know that our new restaurant, Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar, is now open at the hotel for lunch and dinner. We are thrilled with the addition of our new Mediterranean inspired menus and hope you can enjoy this on a future visit.

Thank you again for your visit,

Best Wishes,
