I stayed here for 3 nights in July for a wedding being held on site. The place is very understaffed and unfortunately, I feel as though they may be well over their heads. There was no one on site after 11pm which was not great when the fire alarms went off and there was no one to shut them off. Thank goodness there weren't any actual emergencies.
My room was never made up, I wasn't given fresh towels or linens. The comforter/duvet was just thrown over the bed (the way you would make it if you were 6 year old). The garbage wasn't changed. When I brought this us with the front desk, they said "oh, we've been having problems with one of our cleaning staff".
Don't get me started on the pillows. They had to be original to the English Inn. Mine was wafer thin...
My friends staying in the same hotel actually had a key which opened every room in the hotel, not exactly the safest.
The Inn is old, but the rooms are significantly different in size and quality. I would caution you to ensure your room is what you paid for, before handing over your credit card.
There is no restaurant in the Inn...and you're quite a ways from downtown and the sights.
There are so many beautiful places to stay in Victoria, hotels, inns, B&Bs...so there is no need for you to risk staying at this one.
