This hotel was very convenient--very close to the ferry and not very far from Victoria. We were within walking distance of grocery stores, shops, and restaurants. The waterfront is close and is a beautiful area for a walk. We really enjoyed Sidney!! The hotel was very pretty, clean, and quiet. Our beds were comfortable and the suite was spacious. The internet connection was better than most. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. We used the fitness room--the only complaints--it was a little warm with the hot tub in the same room and it would have been nice to have a TV available. There is not a complimentary breakfast. We chose not to eat at Smitties next door, but walked to a near-by café for breakfast. Smitties stayed pretty busy, though. If we're ever in the area, we would definitely stay here again!
