We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of September and loved our experience here. The rooms were clean & comfortable. The staff were warm, kind & helpful. Would definitely recommend as an easy stay close to lots of activities downtown & around the harbour.

Hotel's Favorite
We chose to return to the Oswego hotel for 18 nights while visiting our son who lives in Victoria. Being situated in a central location with guest parking for our hired car it's ideal. For such a long stay, eating out every day could be expensive so having a full kitchen and supermarkets nearby kept the cost down. A coin operated guest laundry was a must and I never had to wait, I only saw one other person in there. When we ate in the restaurant a few times we found the food and service excellent. Staff throughout the hotel were friendly, welcoming and super helpful at all times. We would definitely recommend The Oswego to anyone visiting Victoria and will no doubt be back ourselves.

Great but wish the restaurant was open every day. May be time to replace some furniture and carpets. Bathroom soaps, shampoo and conditioners were great. Deck could be cleaner and deck furniture is definitely due for replacement.

Gorgeous room with lots of space! Front desk was ok but nothing amazing. They could be more welcoming. Breakfast was also just alright. The room and location was the high point. Would go back if visiting Victoria.

Was here for one night for business. Restaurant was not open on a Wednesday which was disappointing after a day of travelling. Staff was great and organized a taxi for me. Rooms were clean and had a portable A/C Unit.

The hotel is situated in a lovely peaceful area and just a short walk to the marina The apartments have cooking facilities and deprecate bedroom / lounge . Staff on hand 24/7 but following Covid needed to close bar and restorant three days of week . Short walk to fisherman’s wharf and the fish and chip selection is a must . You can catch water taxi to other areas from here. The hotel has ample parking and is dog friendly With good clothes washing facilities on site and the ability to leave luggage if catching late flight the Oswego is a pleasant quieter hotel

Stayed here whilst we went whale watching from Fisherman's wharf. Very convenient. Nice hotel, had a full kitchen in the room. Breakfast didn't start until 08.30 on the Sunday we left, but we were recommended a great diner round the corner.

The hotel is located in a quiet street but only a few minutes walk from the harbour and city centre. Décor is modern and the hotel was very clean. Rooms were comfortable and we slept well. There was a Jazz night during our four night stay. The staff were friendly and accommodating. There is secured underground parking beneath the hotel with adequate space charged at 17 $Can per night We were very satisfied with our stay.
