My family stayed here for two nights and we were pleasantly suprised at the overall experience. The staff was helpful and friendly, making out visit much more comfortable. It is within walking distance to great shops, restaurants, and other sites of interest. I would defintely stay there again.

My only criticism is in the email communication. My reservation confirmation was incorrect, so I tried to email the hotel but could not get a response (even using the email address listed on their website and not the no-reply email service for the confirmations). Fortunately, they have a toll free phone number that I used. Other than that the stay was great.

The Magnolia is truly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The rooms are excellent, the location is perfect and the service is outstanding. I loved that the hotel wasn't too big, but still had all the amenities of large upscale hotel chains. We had a corner room and the windows were amazing.

My husband and I just spent two wonderful days at the Magnolia, over the Canada Day long weekend. From check-in, to restaurant recommendations, to directions - the service and staff are fabulous. We had a beautiful room overlooking the harbour and Parliament Buildings, with a wonderful window seat which you can curl up in to enjoy the view. The hotel is in the heart of Victoria, so easy walking distance to the inner harbour, Bastion Square, and Chinatown. I guarantee you will love this hotel!

Exactly what a nice boutique hotel should be. Nice room, nice bed, wonderful view - ask for the 7th floor with a harbor view if they have it. Breakfast is in the attached restaurant. Great location - a short walk to anything. Forget room service and go across the street to the French bistro and carry out something fabulous.

My wife & I stayed at the Magnolia over Canada day celebrating our 33rd anniversary. Over the years we have stayed at almost every high-end motel and B&B in downtown and our opinion is the Magnolia is the finest available at any price. Location is perfect for not needing a car, room on 5th floor was clean, spacious, and well appointed. We ate Dinner and Lunch at the Prime steakhouse, absolutely excellent. The breakfast buffet had extensive varieties of great quality items.

Stayed here while on the Victoria leg of our honeymoon. There was a mistake with the type of room for our first night and the staff assured us they would make up for it...boy did they ever. The next day my wife and I were moved to a top floor corner room with a spectacular view of the harbor. In addition, they left champagne, chocolates, and a thougtful note. This will be our hotel whenever we get a chance to get back out there. Thanks!

Magnolia was one of the more romantic, cosy type of boutique hotels we stayed in while travelling through Canada. Very comfortable and clean, beautifully decorated. Breakfast was included in our season-special tariff and was really good so we also ate dinner there one rainy night and were rewarded with a lovely meal. The hotel is well located in central/shopping area of Victoria. Easy walking distance to main bus stop for travel to Vancouver. Really good staff. Smallish yet adequate gym.Very comfortable beds. Wonderful experience, hope I get to stay there again, would highly recommend.

Room Tip: We got a good deal by sending an email direct to .
