“Supurb location and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2010

The hotel is perfectly located in the Inner Harbour. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, my 8yr old son was able to play the piano in the lobby at 10 am which was nice of them and it made his day.

The facilities are great even without a pool. Our family was busy touring Victoria so it didn't really matter that they couldn't swim at the end of the day. The continental breakfast was great. The waffles are amazing.

My suggestions: Take your kids to the Soda Shoppe which is a couple of blocks over from the hotel for ice cream floats and shakes. The view and atmosphere is brilliant.

Having stayed in Victoria previously at The Empress, the Grand Pacific, the Ocean Pointe, Inn at Laurel Point and the Best Western Inner Harbour will definately ALWAYS be staying at Magnolia Hotel in the future!! The service was outstanding, the value exceptional and my only question is why is it not rated #1?

Lovely hotel which seems to really take guests' wants and needs into account. Clean, quiet, comfortable with a good location and helpful staff. Would highly recommend this hotel. If there is a downside, it's that there isn't a pool or hot tub.

As a total surprise, my husband booked a room for us as we were celebrating our anniversary. The Guest Services staff were aware of our celebration, and a lovely box of chocolates and a hand-written card of congratulations were waiting for us in the room.

Ambience, view, attention to every detail - The Magnolia is certainly hospitality at its best!

We stayed at Magnolia Hotel in Victoria for 1 night in October 10 and it was a great choice. When we arrived around 2 pm, our room wasn't quite ready yet and we were offered to wait in the lobby where tea and coffee can be made , and the wait was no longer than 10 minutes. It was my birthday and upon checking in the room we found a bottle of wine and box of chocolates - very nice and pleasant surprise. Also they offered to complimentary upgrade our room to a better, very spacious room with a view of Parlament because of my birthday - Thank you very much, Blair!! The room was very spacious, king bed - very comfortable, and the turndown service was a great touch! The locaiton of the hotel can't be better in my opinion, it's close to everything yet very quiet. Our trip to Victoria was mostly gastronomical( due to bad planning:)) and a gentleman at the reception (unfortunately i didn't catch his name) suggested us a lot of great pubs and seafood places - oyster bar next door is the best seafood tapas place I've ever been! and very reasonably priced!! Irish and Scottish pubs in the center of the town are very charming too! The only little thing that i would probably mention was the most of the staff was pretty indifferent which was surprising for us. They weren't unfriendly by any means, just not really caring/knowledgeable. Everything else including very nice continental breakfast was perfect and we will be back to Magnolia to finally go to the gardens!

My husband and I stayed at the Magnolia during a one-night stay in Victoria. We were impressed with the sense of elegance and luxury, and would definitely stay here again.
Pros - location is a 2 minute walk to the harbour, room was comfortable and appealing, complimentary breakfast and wi-fi, friendly staff
Cons - noisy street, cost for parking, not a harbour view, small fitness centre

We travelled to Victoria Island for our wedding anniversary and the staff at the Magnolia Hotel treated us like special guests at check in. Our room had a great view of the harbor, with a warm fireplace, and a chilled bottle of champagne awaiting us! The bathroom had a soaking tub and first class amenities. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the continental breakfast each morning was great to have before starting the day. The Magnolia is in a great location to the ferry, bus tours, Parliament House, and local restaurants. I would recommend this hotel over the Empress because the staff provides more personal care to its guests.
