Outstanding location and beautiful hotel! We went for the first time this past Christmas -- as a quick getaway before the madness of visiting family started :) -- and were welcomed by friendly staff and complimentary hot apple cider as we checked in. Nice.

The hotel is so close to Victoria's inner harbor, we went for a long evening walk before going for dinner; the location is in the best part of Victoria's downtown, which gave us access to essentially any of the top restaurants. Our room was on the sixth floor, which offered a really beautiful view.

If you like shopping, dining, going for drinks or just strolling along -- and then returning to a hotel that makes you feel pampered without charging you for it -- this hotel is ideal. We'll be returning for Valentine's Day!

PS: Bring tip money for the valet as there is nowhere to park your own car.

Room Tip: The sixth and seventh floors have pricier rooms... but those are the ones with the view (which you k...

Would recommend it even more that they are renovating the rooms! Great location and the French restaurant across the street has some good cocktails! (Friday night is cocktail special night) Right in the heart of Victoria.

Awesome hotel, and great service from start to finish. Very friendly front desk staff, had our bags brought up to our room while we were at lunch. It was the little touches that made our visit great. The room was very clean and comfortable. Even the TWO sitting chairs in the room were comfortable to sit in and enjoy a drink at the end of the night (usually hotels only have one chair). Nice big soaker tub. Right in the heart of downtown, close to all restaurants/bars but no street noise. The room had great harbour views. Nice breakfast in the morning. They made our anniversary a very special and memorable occasion.

I enjoyed every moment I was there - and the staff was great. I was lucky to be in one of their diamond rooms and loved loved loved the fireplace. It was also all the small details (complimentary water , chocolates, bath salts, slippers , newspaper, breakfast ,all day coffee & tea, apples , apple cider etc...) that made the experience of staying at this hotel so memorable and exceptional. I think I must have had over 5 cups of their homemade apple cider in the 2 days ...:) Looking forward to going back next year :) !!!

We are a couple who stayed two nights in December.

In general the hotel is very good:
-Clean, very spacious rooms with every conceivable amenity
-Good location near the harbor
-Some nice details
-Exceptionally good value compared to similar standard of accommodation
-Included Breakfast (but see below)


A minor point:
-The included breakfast, whilst in a nice setting, was not very extensive and of mediocre quality. The available selection and quality of the food did not seem to be in keeping with the quality of the rest of the hotel. We did not expect breakfast to be included, so it was a nice surprise. However, on the second day, we ate breakfast in the purely out of convenience rather than anything else. It is a shame, because the hotel could easily charge a nominal fee and revamp the breakfast into something that enhances the overall experience. Why bother including something that guests are probably not expecting, unless it complements the high standard of the rest of the hotel? I would have given 4 discs rather than three if there were no breakfast at all, but the quality diluted, rather than enhanced, the quality of the hotel.
-Service is OK, but not exceptional

Please don't be put off by this review. The standard of the rooms make this a great base from which to explore the area.

Room Tip: Higher floor to avoid street noise in the morning.

Thank you Steve for your review of the hotel.

I am truly pleased that you enjoyed much of your stay, and do hope we see you back again with us.

I would like to offer my sincere apologies that the breakfast let you down with respect to your overall experience with us. The Deluxe Continental breakfast offering has been in place since the hotel's opening and is included for all of our guests. We do change up the offerings from time to time, and clearly from your feedback we will consider some increased changes to address this area.

Thank you again for your visit,

Your business with us is truly appreciated and valued.

If I can be of personal assistance in any way, please let me know at any time.
