“Great location”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Location is perfect for being within easy walking distance to downtown with all the activities and also being on a quiet street to sleep at night. Coach house is highly recommended for luxury and comfort but 2 flights of stairs with luggage is not so easy (no elevator). Overall great place to stay for a couple of nights and see Victoria.

Clean comfortable rooms and a great location close to the heart of Victoria but still very quiet.
The staff truly seem to enjoy their work with nothing being to much trouble. Breakfast in the morning is a treat - freshly made scones & muffins and a variety of fresh cooked breakfast specials each day.

We stayed one night but wish it could have been more. The service was very attentive, the room very comfortable with lots of extras; 5 pm wine reception a great opportunity to meet other guests with delicious food - all done in the lovely old fashioned library; breakfast was cooked fresh to order with lots of choices. Did think toast should have been served with eggs. We asked for some and this was duly made but too late to go with the eggs. Location was really good - a nice walk to the city/waterfront and a quiet area.

Room Tip: think all would be good

Friendly staff who gave great restaurant recommendations, yummy breakfast with several options and great service, lovely 5 pm appetizers, very comfy bed and spacious rooms/bathrooms, well cared for property, a short walk to everything including two lovely parks, downtown and inner harbor...Abigail's was the perfect place to stay during our Victoria getaway.

We'll be back and tell all of our friends too!

Room Tip: 1B was great, but we didn't check out the other rooms.

My wife and I stayed here for our 10th anniversary. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff, management and ambiance of this incredible property. The breakfasts are out of this world and prepared by some amazing people who obviously take pride in their profession and creations!
Don't even second guess yourself if you are considering staying in downtown Victoria. Just call and book at Abigails and you won't be disappointed!

I booked this hotel based on Tripadvisor ratings, and could not have been happier. The staff was superb, helpful, cheerful, accommodating, and a pleasure to interact with. The room (Canterbury Bell - one of the honeymoon suites) was spacious, immaculately clean, and had an incredibly comfortable bed. The windows are doubled-paned to keep out outside sounds (of which there are not many), there is radiant heating from the walls - quite and efficient. Their is a/c if you need it. The bathroom is beautiful and luxurious with thick robes and towels, a huge double jaccuzi tub that was amazing. The room was at the end of the third floor hall and extremely quiet - we never heard any sounds from elsewhere in the hotel. The library downstairs is well stocked for books and videos. We loved the afternoon hors d'oeuvres, which were varied and extremely tasty. Breakfasts were cooked fresh to order with choices each morning from a small menu, accompanied by fresh juice, good coffee and fresh berries as well as freshly baked breads and muffins.

Staff helped us with several restaurant reservations, gave advice on places to eat, where to get a sandwich for our Clipper ride back, etc. While this place is a few minutes walk from the center of the city, it is just far enough away to be quiet and relaxing.

In short, a perfect and romantic place for a long weekend or longer. Best hotel experience we've had in many years.

Room Tip: Honeymoon suites are great; ours even had a partial view of the Olympic mountains.

I chose this hotel because of the Trip Advisor reviews. It is not the cheapest hotel in Victoria but it is certainly well worth staying there. The hotel is in a residential suburb but just a 5/10 minute walk from the harbour. It is a small hotel with a library/lounge/bar room and a dining room which serves breakfast only. Breakfast though is something that everyone seems to comment about and indeed it is very good. It is not your usual North American/Canadian pancakes nor is it you traditional English. You have a choice of fresh juice, muffins, scones and a cooked breakfast. We had poached eggs on grilled asparagus and smoked salmon. The hotel has its own chef with an open kitchen so you can watch its preparation if you wish.

There is free fresh coffee and tea available throughout the day and at 5pm nibbles are served. We had a bowl of soup and savory biscuits which were delicious.

We stayed in the Coach House which is next to the main building. It is literally less than 30 seconds away. Our room was well appointed with an open fire and a balcony. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and with a combined bath and good power shower. Free bottled water and home made cookies were also in the room.

All of the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful in recommending restaurants and walks and things to do. There is also free parking in the hotels own car park.

Would I stay there again? Yes and the next time we visit we shall do so.
