Excellent location in downtown Victoria. 5 minutes walk to bus exchange, marina, and downtown core. Reasonable price, especially with breakfast included. Great service in general, but no room service. They will not clean the room, reload the tissue paper, change the towel...I think maybe because of Covid19? Will be here again.

Hello 442719599, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with TripAdvisor. We truly appreciate the 5 star review, and are very happy to see that you were able to take advantage of our great location and excellent customer service. You are correct about not receiving housekeeping stayover service due to COVID-19. One of our COVID-19 safety protocols is that we are not offering any in room stay over service; however, guests are welcome to stop by the Front Desk, or dial zero (0) from their guest room, and request items such as fresh towels or linens, toilet paper, and other toiletries. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel. Kind Regards, Tara

My boyfriend and I spent 1 night at the Strathcona and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The room was spotless and the front desk employees were beyond friendly. The location of the Strathcona is central and perfect for an evening walk around town! I would definitely recommend the Strathcona hotel:)

In the name of Covid-19 very basic on the go breakfast and no coffee maker in the room or you have to pay $15 more , they are taking advantage because of COVID but not giving you any break in price. Very bad service.

Hello Ahmed, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with TripAdvisor. I am sorry to see that you did not enjoy your recent visit with us. I apologize if there was some confusion with regard to the room type you booked, and any upgrade options offered to you. Our Standard Queen and Queen Deluxe rooms do not come equipped with a coffee/tea station in the room. This is due to the heritage nature of our property, and the lack of electrical wiring to run small appliances in our non renovated room types. The room types that we have completed renovations on offer a more spacious layout, with modern furnishings, updated washrooms, mini fridge, microwave, coffee/tea station, air conditioning, and in some rooms a seating area or desk and chairs. The upgrade charge quoted to you was not based on the coffee maker alone and reflects the overall value of the different room categories we have available. Our current continental breakfast must be offered in a "to go" format due to COVID-19, as we cannot safely offer a buffet like we used to during a global pandemic. Current menu items consist of a choice of cold cereal and 2% milk, fresh fruit, Nutrigrain Bar, juice box, yoghurt, and a hard-boiled egg (with or without salt and pepper.) Kind Regards, Tara

I stayed in the hotel with my two girls and we loved it. The hotel has great location, Downtown, very close to everything. We got a day parking for $10 a day. Hotel is very clean, looks newly updated, fresh paint, new beds and bedding, flooring. We loved the beds, very comfy. Great customer service from all the staff. The price was really good for the value and I will definitely come again.
