Despite reading some very positive reviews of the Victorian here on TA and booking our stay on the basis of them, I have to admit that we didn't expect too much when we walked into the rather old fashioned (some may sat 'quaint') reception and checked in with the slighty brusque (though not rude) east European lady on reception. However, we were delighted to find that our room went way beyond those initial expectations. It was spacious, with a lovely en-suite marble-finished bedroom and an extremely comfortable queen-sized bed - I can't comment on what the older bedrooms may be like but if you're lucky enough to be staying in one of the rooms in the newer annex, you'll have no room for complaint. The other major plus for us was with the breakfast - definitely amongst the best we had on our fortnight's travelling through the Pacific north-west. Fresh strawberries, yoghurt, granola and huge freshly-baked muffins made for a delightful start to the day. The location of the hotel on the edge of Gastown was also ideal, with many points of interest within walking distance; and by booking early we secured a very competitive room rate, making this hard to beat in terms of value-for-money in what is a relatively expensive city. Excellent overall.
