My wife and I recently spent several nights celebrating her 40th birthday in Victoria. We had two nights at a different 5 star spa/resort and it really didn't compare to our stay at the Abigail Hotel. The rooms were immaculate, beautifully furnished with classic old world charm surroundings. Very comfortable beds and welcoming fireplaces in the Orchid and foxglove rooms. There was a sight problem in the foxglove room and they immediately moved us to the honeymoon suite - the Orchid room (both rooms were really beautiful) The staff pampered us with their attention. We enjoyed the 5pm wine and cheese gathering in the library and the gourmet breakfast in the morning, being served by 3 different staff was really a treat. One of the best hot chocolates I've had in years (many). My wife really appreciated how central the hotel was to downtown Victoria and got a great run in before breakfast. The grounds were lovely with many flowers. Just book it and enjoy your choice you wont be sorry.

Abigail's is a lovely small hotel situated in a fabulous location for seeing Victoria. The rooms were luxurious, yet comfy; breakfasts were excellent--food, service, ambiance; "happy hour" treats were generous and delicious; and the public rooms were gracious. But the true strength of Abigail's lies in its service, and that's what will have us coming back again. Staff were welcoming, super helpful with all kinds of info, made tour reservations for us, offered personal advice and guidance or just a friendly chat in the AM or after a day of city walking. We couldn't have asked for more!

We recently spent three nights. From the warm reception by the general manager, Nick, to the extremely helpful staff, our stay was absolutely delightful. The charm of the Abigail is a combination of small size, beautiful architecture and first rate staff.

We stayed here 11 years ago too for our anniversary and are happy to report that this is the best place to stay.The inn has wonderful charm and old-world architecture, with each room is a different ambience. Late afternoon appetizers and wine are available, fresh cookies on your bed as you arrive and and fabulous breakfast. Beautiful setting with gorgeous flowers out front surrounding the lovely patio.

We really enjoyed our stay there. It is in a convenient location and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were home cooked and excellent. Abigails is a much nicer place to stay than an ordinary 4 or 5 star hotel. The rooms have genuine character as does the entire hotel. We very strongly recommend it.

We stayed in Abigails for just one night after a transatlantic flight to Vancouver and follow on float plane to Victoria. It was the perfect place to recover from such a journey. We had a fantastic welcome, arrived in perfect time for canapes, the hotel recommended and booked and restaurant for dinner, we had a great soak in the clawfoot bath and ended with a great sleep. The room was very quiet (even with the windows open!). The next morning we enjoyed an excellent breakfast and later relaxed in the library with a complimentary coffee before leaving for Vancouver by ferry. I have no hesitation in recommending Abigails as probably the best place to stay in Victoria (only probably as I didn't stay anywhere else!).

ABIGAIL'S is - without exception, the best and most exquisite B & B in Victoria! It's located in a quiet park-like residential neighbourhood within walking distance from historic downtown. As such, there was no need to use my car or hunt for parking when visiting local attractions because almost everything worth doing or seeing was just a short stroll from the hotel. Of course once I checked in and was welcomed by the staff and had a tour of the facilities, I didn't even want to leave the hotel!

I stayed in a 'Fireplace Room' which was large, comfortable and beautifully appointed. The room overlooked the lovely spring gardens. The details made all the difference. The unique little extras, like homebaked cookies, gourmet coffee/tea, hors d'oeuvres served in the library, spa facilities, the excellent selection of books (or movies) and the artwork created a comfortable, luxurious and serene environment. The only reason I got out of bed after a restful night's sleep was because I didn't want to miss the resident chef's famous breakfast choices. The food was incredible.

I highly recommend Abigail's Hotel!

Abigail's Hotel is a unique accommodation experience that blurs the lines between a small luxury hotel and a heritage bed-and-breakfast Inn. Abigail's is an adult-only, intimate 23-room property that is housed in a 1930's Tudor mansion. Its special atmosphere blends the romance and charm of the past with the comfort and convenience of modern accommodation. Located in romantic Victoria, British Columbia, Abigail's is quietly situated on the edge of the bustling downtown core and is three short blocks from Victoria's Inner Harbour, within walking distance of all the major downtown attractions and restaurants. Life is too short to be conventional, discover a splendour and charm that has been lost to the ages and uniquely exists at Abigail's. ... more   less
