My niece and I just spent an overnight At the Oak Bay Beach Hotel and it was just superb. We had a very enjoyable room with a magnificent view. We spent a whole afternoon at the spa which left us feeling relaxed and happy. The Faro is the best pizza we ever ate and the salads are gorgeous. We had breakfast at the pub. The mineral pools are delightful. The staff bends backwards to make your stay enjoyable. I highly recommend this hotel. It’s the place to be.
After a wonderful two nights stay, there is not doubt as to why the hotel is so highly rated in Canada and globally. It has been the best experience I’ve had at a hotel of this calibre. Everyone on staff who we engaged with was friendly, helpful and competent. Exceptional and friendly service without pretension. The food in both The Snug pub and the Dining Room is outstanding. The rooms are well appointed and gloriously comfortable beds. We spent almost two full hours in the mineral pools which was a treat after a crisp morning waterfront run. Highly recommend staying here!
This hotel is incredible. Food is excellent in both restaurants, lobby, hotel rooms and spa are so beautiful. Pool and hot tubs near the ocean are amazing. Landscaping and design outside hotel leading down to ocean is very well thought out. Plenty of free parking underground.
We really enjoyed our stay at Oak Bay Beach Hotel. We were going to stay here for our honeymoon a few years ago but there was a change of plan. This hotel has stayed on my radar since then and I am so pleased we finally stayed here. Everything was well-thought out, and more than once I was reminded of "Our Best" that the hotel prides itself on. Room: we saved some money by booking a residential view instead of ocean view as we were mostly going to be in our room after dark anyway and we planned to use the pools. The room was very nice, well decorated, with seating areas - this is a big thing for me, like, I don't want to just sit on a bed the whole time I'm staying somewhere, though the bed was definitely comfortable - and there was a kitchenette even though we weren't in a suite. There was a small balcony, which I'm sure would be great in an ocean view room, but we didn't use it due to privacy as our room was facing the hotel's entrance. Pools: Everything was great at the hotel, but the pools are a definite highlight. I usually like to be out exploring all day when I'm on vacation, but made an exception here and blocked off an afternoon just to lounge and use the pools. They had great views of the ocean. It was busy, but we were able to get seats and have a few drinks. It was sunny out and the temperature was above-seasonal; it was the perfect use of such a beautiful day. Staff: The staff here were great, Everyone we interacted with was professional and pleasant. We were on a two-week trip with only carry-on bags, so had to be selective in what clothes we packed - we didn't look like our best, but we were never treated as less-than. The hotel called the night before to ask when we expected to check-in to ensure our room would be ready. We ended up arriving a bit earlier than we said and the gentleman at the desk was very apologetic that our room wasn't ready, obviously not their fault as we were early, and was able to put us into a different room. We also booked the car service to go to dinner downtown. The concierge who drove us, Thomas, was phenomenal, a true asset to the team for sure. We did not eat here as we had so many other restaurants that we wanted to try in Victoria, but I do wish that we could have at least gone for "Aperitivo Hour" at Faro. Next time!…
Highly recommend this hotel. Everything from the decor to the views is amazing. Staff are professional and attend to any need you have. We had the "best ocean view room". See attached pictures. The bed was a king-size and extremely comfortable. Soaker tub in the bathroom. Nespresso machine fully stocked. You have full access to the mineral pools (Main pool and two hot tubs). Food and bar service is available at the pool (Can not bring drinks while in the pool). Views from the pool were amazing. The restaurants are Fargo and the Snug pub, both great. Room service was pretty great and fast to the door. Will be going back. They have a Telsa charger and a regular electric car charging station available for free. There is a 2-hour limit but it is a stage 2 charger.
Sometime a last minute decision can become an exciting and exceptional experience. OakBay hotel is very well situated in the heart of Victoria BC. Our experience was fantastic right from driving up until departure. The amenities of spa and mineral bath were well appointed and the hot tub was amazing. All located on the Ocean front. Walking and golf next door. The staff were very courteous and knowledgeable. A top five hotel in our books. Simply remarkable and we highly recommend this facility to any and everyone!!!

A reservation is a must for the dining room. The view was stunning, the dining room is quaint and beautifully decorated Our meals were all outstanding. They have a 4 course menu so between the 4 of us we experienced everything on the menu. The food was of very good quality, beautifully presented and very generous portions. Our server was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the wine and the menu. We will definitely return to this lovely Dining Room. Thank you!
We stayed at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel Oct 21-24th 2022 what a great time everyone was warm and welcoming, we had a very good time and my wife cant wait to return !!1 one of the best trips we have ever had the massages were outstanding to say the least the best we have ever had !! food was great and service was top notch as well we can not fault anything at this hotel
Great place to stay. Service is top notch, the landscaping and views are serene, picturesque and beautiful. Rooms are quiet. The pools and warm and amazing. The spa just elegant. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
The location right on the shore of the Pacific speaks for itself. I had such a spectacular experience staying at Oak Bay while in Victoria for business. From the start, the staff were so welcoming and helpful. I really enjoyed unwinding at the mineral pools and hot tubs. I ate twice at The Snug Pub once through room service and once dine-in - both times the food was delicious and the service was timely. I'll certainly be returning to Oak Bay.
