4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This place is in a great location with easy access to the waterfront and many locations in Victoria. It is first and foremost a club, and if you can deal with the dress code and a few oddities, it's a very nice place to stay. Breakfast was superb and the bartenders in the main bar were awesome, telling stories, making... More

If you like the old school style clubs then this fits the bill. It is very centrally located downtown Victoria. Nicely exclusive with an aura of days gone by. A little 'tired' but they have recently smartened up the outside and are slowly working round the inside. The main Reading room is very impressive and they are justly proud of... More

The Union Club is an unapologetic tribute to Queen, Country and Empire, not generally something I recommend, but it's incredibly comfortable, well-priced, centrally located and cozy. The dining room is well-worn in a good way. Club members told us what table to sit at, and inquired about our opinion of the food. It was an odd, but not unpleasant feeling.... More

Not cheap, but good. Very old school atmosphere. Lovely sit down made to order breakfast. Canopy bed, windows open, all the amenities of home are available. Good location, quiet. Bed is so fluffy it comes with a wee adorable ladder for climbing in.

During our stay we moved to 3 different rooms, as they were booked up, so got a chance to see some of the different options. They have done a good job updating this stately building and the location is perfect for walking about town. The suites are large, comfortable and well appointed. Go for a suite if you can and...

Old with great tradition and ambiance. The Union Club was a wonderful change from the norm! The breakfast was prefect with great variety. There is a library that I could sit in and relax for hours. The location is in the heart of town and close to everything.

We stayed here in May having come to Victoria to attend a wedding at the Catherdral. The Club was everything we wished. The room was perfect and it was great to have our own place right in the centre of town. Having the suite meant we had our own sitting room to lounge in when we wanted some down time.... More
