We stayed in the cottage that overlooks the parking lot in the back where there are trees and a quiet street and in front is the way to the beautiful park by the ocean. It feels like you are part of the old neighbourhood as there are very friendly cats roaming around and many

Are the rooms air conditioned?
No air conditioning. Rooms have fans and the windows open. Victoria seldom gets hot enough for air conditioning. It's hardly ever humid. As the temperature goes up, the humidity goes down. Temperature drops rapidly at sunset. It's a very comfortable climate. It rarely goes above 30C/90F and there is usually a breeze off the ocean that moderates. I never missed air conditioning at the James Bay Inn or when I lived in the city for 10 years.
