Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was in a great location. Right next to the BC Parliament. Excellent breakfasts. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. Roomy. Balcony for each room, so we had 2. We faced west, so view of a parking lot. Which was probably quieter than the other direction. I wish housekeeping would do more. We stayed 4 nights. The bed was...

Excellent location right in the heart of Victoria. Free parking. Steps away from the harbour and easy walking distance to the major sights. The rooms are a good size, beds comfortable and linens good quality. Breakfast, with a great selection of both hot and cold items, kept well stocked. This is an excellent base for exploring Victoria.

Thank you so much for the review. You are right! Our location has been talked about so much, we truly are in a great part of town, close to all Victoria has to offer. Many of our guests just park their car for the duration of their stay and never use it! i guess you need it for touring Butchart...

This hotel is directly across the street from the Parliament Building to the south. Consequently, it is very convenient to any of the downtown attractions. We were able to take a walking tour of the downtown Victoria area without having to drive anywhere. It is an older hotel but is well maintained. Breakfast area is very nice and the food...

We spent two very enjoyable nights here. The personnel were friendly and helpful, the beds were comfortable, and the complementary breakfast was tasty and satisfying, with a rotating menu from one day to the next. Convenient parking lot, which is a valuable amenity directly across the street from the provincial capitol and a stone's throw from the harbor. Warmly recommended!

From their arrival until their departure it was a pleasure calling the Embassy home for my family's visit. It was a lengthy stay but the well appointed suite was very comfortable.

The hotel is situated in a very good area of town, across the street from Parliament. Easy to walk to shopping areas, wharf area and good restaurants. The hotel has good bedding, clean bathrooms.
