Just attended a wedding here. The Inn is really nice but rather chilly. The mix of traditional decor and modern is rather confusing. Staff are exceptional and I wonder based on the fantastic food provided for the reception why they are not making the most of their dining facilities. The continental breakfast is delicious but sadly no lunch or dinner...

What an amazing place! The hotel is just beautiful, the room we had was giant and had a beautiful balcony overlooking the gardens. The staff were great and you could spend a lot of time in the gardens. It was a little out of the way, which made finding a nice meal close by difficult (but not impossible!). It would...

I planned a surprise party for my husbands 40th birthday at the English Inn. Heather and her staff were amazing and so accommodating for every detail for our 30+ guests. They met us at the door with martinis and had the bar all stocked with our favourites, even going to the effort of creating a signature drink for us! We...

Stylish rooms in a British style hotel This hotel is marvelous, the rooms are so nice. They are English Country chic with modern amenities. The location is excellent - 8 minutes to downtown. It won't be for everyone as you do have to walk up stairs to the rooms located on the 3rd floor but it is worth the walk

My husband & I bought a groupon to try this hotel. Unfortunately we were not that impressed. We could hear every word when people talked in the hallway outside our room. The description of the room promised a seating area. And sure there were two chairs in the room. Unfortunately they were too uncomfortable to use and they faced a...

We recently spent one night at the English Inn and were impressed with the service, the staff were very friendly, informative and ready to help in any way. We learned that we could order in our dinner from a number of restaurants, pay a delivery charge and eat in the Inn's dining room! The fire places were great on the...

One of the more unique places I've stayed locally. Spotlessly clean and very quiet. Staff were excellent and "J" was particularly nice to chat with. Beautiful gardens and nice patios make this a place you want to visit.

Bought a groupon for this hotel. My husband and i had to fly into Victoria for a medical procedure, which in itself is quite costly. Our flight did not land until 8:30pm so by the time we were able to rent a car and drive to the hotel it was 9:30, but while we were in line at the car...

Thank you for communicating your comments about your recent stay with us. As we are not a 24hr property, and close in the early evening at this time of year, it is very important that we are aware of when guests are arriving to the hotel. With staff who reside on property, it really makes no difference when you arrive,...

We stayed in room 7 a Crown room that was very large with high ceilings, and a patio that looked out on the garden and had glimpses of the ocean. We had a few cocktails down in the main lobby in front of the fireplace early in the evening. The staff were great, and we will be back to try...

The lobby of this place was what I was expecting the rooms to look like,beautiful dark wood and cozy.But ours wasn't.We were lead out into the garden into another building,it was a strange setup.The room was comfortable enough but not quite what I was expecting in a place called the English Inn,needs some updating.

Thank you for your feedback about your recent stay with us. We have one extra room off the garden path, outside the main manor house. Should this room be booked on the phone, guests are advised of its location. If guests book online, you will simply be allocated a room type. I have since looked ahead to advise all booked...
