Magnolia Hotel And Spa

Reviewed April 9, 2014

A lovely boutigue hotel centrally located and withing walking distance to shops, restaurants, and theatre. Efficient, professional and welcoming front desk. The room was well appointed, but a little dingy lighting-wise, I thought. My one major caveat is parking - valet only and at $24 / night when one can park on the street after 6 pm for free! I can't comment on the restaurant or spa experience as we did not avail ourselves of these.

Thank you Carmena16 for your business with us, and for taking the time to share your feedback.

We truly appreciate the kind words about the hotel, the location, and the rooms.

I was very sorry to hear that you found the Valet Parking fees to be expensive. The hotel offers valet parking in our secure parking area, and we ensure that our pricing is at the mid range of upscale and luxury properties in the downtown area. We do also advise guests that street parking is available, however it is only free until 9am and otherwise is $3.75 for a maximum 90 minute period. Many of our guests enjoy the comforts of knowing their vehicle is safely parked away in our locked garage. This option also allows guests to enjoy all of the sights in our neighborhood during the day, even well after check out time, to make the most of their visit at the hotel.

Thank you again for your business with The Magnolia.

I hope we have the pleasure to welcome you back again,

Kind Regards,

Bill Lewis

Magnolia is the best bargin in downtown Victoria. We have stayed multiple times and during different seasons. The staff and service is always excellent. We have stayed at other locations in and around downtown. Magnolia is the standard to beat.

My wife and I visit Victoria every four months, and we have stayed at the Magnolia five times. It is our favorite hotel in the city, and for many reasons. The hotel is superbly well managed, and we have found everyone on the staff to be friendly and helpful. The rooms are well-designed, the beds are comfortable, and we appreciate the extra pillow, blanket, and robes in the closet. We really like the complimentary breakfasts which are more than adequate in size and quality, even without the hot entrees. Our only criticism is the lack of a fan in the bathroom, a surprising omission, given the general perfection of the rest of the hotel. We look forward to staying at the Magnolia again when we return to Victoria in a few months time.

Dear critikat,

Thank you so much for the lovely comments following your visit.
We appreciate your business and I truly thank you for taking the time to share this feedback.

Regarding the fan, I was very pleased that you were able to speak with one of our Manager's following check out and clear up the misunderstanding with the fans. All of the guest room fans are built in to the ceiling of the bathrooms. They are tested regularly by our maintenance team to ensure they are operating correctly, and when working are very quiet, which is why this may have appeared to be a lack of a fan.


Thanks again for your repeat business, we look forward to welcoming you back again!

Best Wishes,

Bill Lewis

Such a lovely hotel in a great location. Would highly recommend. We had a great weekend and staying in this hotel contributed to it. Our room was a good size. The room was bright, airy, and had high ceilings. A nice touch was a box of chocolates and a card wishing me a "happy birthday". The staff was so friendly. When in Victoria again, there is no doubt where we will be staying.

We loved every second of our two-night stay at the Magnolia. Our room was very attractive and comfortable (loved the fireplace), the hotel staff were extremely attentive, and food quality was very good (based on two breakfasts). The location of the hotel is perfect for visiting downtown historic Victoria. We'll definitely stay at the Magnolia the next time we're in Victoria.

Always love staying at The Magnolia. Amazing rooms, great service and extremely pleasant stay. Always my first choice when in Victoria! If staying for pleasure, everything you want to check out is within walking distance and parking around town is good too.
