We live in Victoria but decided to celebrate my husband's birthday by staying at the hotel, thanks to their promotion. We were upgraded to an ocean view junior suite and it was beautiful. The attention to detail, amenities and beautiful decor was very impressive. The day was clear--beautiful sunny weather and we enjoyed the outdoor pools, had dinner in the restaurant and we were treated to beautiful music from the grand piano in the lobby--an elderly guest decided to provide everyone with this unexpected treat. We felt we had a lovely vacation without having to travel very far. Very memorable experience! Very courteous staff.

Thank you for creating the luxurious surroundings and delightful pampering I enjoyed during my recent retreat. A sensuous spa day began with a brilliant sunrise and completed with a gorgeous full moon ~ perfectly complimenting the gorgeous suite I was given. Fabulous dining - superbe service - All served to create memories I will treasure until 'next time'. Can hardly wait !

Was her for a weekend meeting. Felt very comfortable, excellent services, friendly staff, and the rooms were very well laid out and comfortable. I particularly loves the lay out and design, large bathrooms, and fireplaces. I also really liked the beachfront view. Highly recommend!

My husband and I recently enjoyed a very pleasant night at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel. It didn't hurt that we were upgraded to an ocean view room (and now can never go back to less). The small kitchenette is perfect and the room is spacious and warm. The bed is very comfortable and with the window open we slept like babies.
My husband drinks the occassional scotch and we stumbled across a scotch tasting presentation in the lobby -nothing exotic but a little bonus for him.
We found the front desk staff to be very pleasant and helpful. Dinner in the pub was good (a bit of a wait in line but it was Saturday night) and in the morning we grabbed coffee and scones to eat while reading the paper in the cafe on premises.
The hotel is a little out of the way for Victoria sightseeing but as we are in Victoria regularly that was fine with us.
We'll certainly be back.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay with us and had the opportunity to experience our signature Oak Bay Beach Dream Bed. Yes, our Snug Pub is a very popular Oak Bay hot spot and you will be glad to hear you can now enjoy a beverage by the fireplace in our cozy lobby lounge should you find yourself waiting for a table. We do hope to welcome you back soon and you never know next time there might just be a nice wine sampling in our purpose built tasting room that you can stumble upon!

My wife and I had an incredibly enjoyable stay at OBBH. The staff were extremely friendly and went well out of their way to truly take care of us. We were on our anniversary and were quite uncertain about having our young toddlers with us at such a high-end hotel, and in fact, they smothered our whole family with utmost care, from setting up the hide-a-bed, parking our car, and even bringing the girls warm milk and cookies. I have never had that level of customer service from any hotel stay ever. Very touching. They even lit the fireplace, left a personalized card on the table congratulating us on our anniversary, and left a delectable array of chocolates and fresh strawberries. And if you haven't tried their mineral pools by the ocean, open late into the night, it is nothing short of breathtaking. Truly Victoria's finest accommodation experience, bar none!

We stayed for business Feb 6 - 8 and have booked a return trip for business and a few days get away combined at month end. The staff at the front desk were courteous, helpful and professional on both check in and check out. Room was nicely appointed with all the little things and a few extras. Very comfortable bed and quality linens. Great to be right on the ocean front wonderful view from the room and the grounds are very nice. Went for a dip in the pools and it was very relaxing to be right on the ocean front. The little pub is very good with a nice view. No extra charge for parking or internet. The Marina is a short distance away and worth a visit. We had dinner one night and the food and atmosphere were wonderful with the cost of a meal being reasonable for that type of experience. Would recommend and we are going back again.

Room Tip: We choose an ocean view room nice that you are given a choice based on your likes or price point.

We had heard that the newly opened hotel was offering special deal during the time of our planned visit to Victoria, so we checked availability online and then booked a courtyard-view room for couple of nights at the special low rate. The, having decided we would like to spend another night, we phoned the hotel and the friendly staff quickly added a third night at the same rate. While on the phone, we mentioned in passing that we were celebrating a special wedding anniversary.
Some days later, when we checked in, we were informed that in honour of our anniversary, our room had been upgraded to an ocean-view, and on entering our room we discovered a lovely card of congratulations alongside a vase of beautiful fresh flowers and a tasty snack. This was the touching beginning of a most pleasant stay.
Staff on the desk and in the pub and dining room were invariably friendly and helpful, as was the chauffeur of the Mercedes in which we were driven at no extra cost to the Royal BC Museum, to be picked up later after a short walk west to Fisherman's Wharf.
