Overall This hotel is tidy, comfortable, clean and in good repair. Each room has a microwave, fridge and sink and decent heating/system - those with manual controls right on the unit but not as growly as some can be. The hotel location is great - a short walk to a bunch of shops and a great community fitness centre half...

We stayed here for the recent Ironman Victoria 70.3. This was one of the official hotels for the race so it booked up quick.

Brilliant location for our group with both participating and non partcipators of the 70.3 Half Ironman. Loved the fully equipped kitchen to prepare for the special needs of triathletes. Yet it was close enough to the Butchard gardens for the rest of us to visit. Safe and ample parking close to our rooms made it easy for us loading and...

We stayed in Room #316 which has one queen bed. This room is next to the elevator and also looks out over the outdoor pool. There is parking underneath the hotel. We found this floor very quiet and couldn't even hear the elevator despite our room literally wrapping around it. The A/C unit nicely helped to cover sound. The room...

This property is our 'go-to' place to stay when we are visiting the Saanich Peninsula. It is away from the congestion of downtown & yet convenient to the harbour area if you want to visit that area.
