This is a little gem that is not to be missed if you are coming to Victoria. A friend and I just stayed there for one night and we both were truly astounded by the level of excellence we experienced and the value. This little hotel has been completely renovated and yet has kept it`s history and glimpses into the past for all to enjoy. The staff were all, to a person, extremely friendly and helpful. We were able to leave our bags early, park the car in a secure gated parking lot, and when we returned a few hours later we found our bags up in our room. The whole hotel simply gleams but the room was very impressive and you could be in any part of the world. Very clean and spacious with a beautiful bathroom and top quality toiletries. There is a heated floor but we were there on a very hot day and so the air conditioning was very welcomed. If you have forgotten anything it probably won`t be a problem. There are robes, a blow dryer, an iron, a microwave, a coffee maker amongst many things. The drapes and bedding were all quite luxurious and the beds very comfortable. The Veneto Tapa lounge is excellent with beautiful tall windows to the world and became the spot where we were welcomed for drinks and a wonderful tray of cheese and appies. There was an adjoining dining area which looked very impressive. The breakfast the next morning was again in another bright and spacious little dining area where we had superb French pressed coffee and for us just a delicious muffin but there was much more available. And once again a lovely staff looking after everything. Check out continued to be great with Michael who once again looked after our bags so we could wander Chinatown a block away before getting the car and leaving. We can highly recommend this hotel and congratulate the owners on a truly impressive renovation. The attention to detail is quite extraordinary.
