    Closeness to the main core of Victoria

    A small fridge would have been good in the room

  • Older travelers

    We were within walking distance to most of the down town Victoria attractions. So we didn't use our too much.

  • Family with children

    good comfortable rooms.bed size is good.

    can provide one micro wave inside the room .t.v can be better.a shuttle to take arround some important places will add value.

    I spent there one night only, overall it was nice, clean and quiet.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The room was clean, very quiet and comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The restaurant was very convenient and the food was delicious. The location could not be any more convenient. Right next to the Parliament Buildings and a block from the inner harbor and a short walk along to the downtown shops. It's a great place to stay.

  • Single
    10.0

    The room was comfortable and very clean with everything I needed (coffee maker, hair dryer, desk, big flat screen TV, arm chair to watch TV, king size bed). The staff were exceptionally courteous and helpful, honestly! The location was very convenient given the proximity to the core of the city and the harbour. I felt the staff gave extra when ever they were asked for anything (room with view of the harbour, assisted me to set up my laptop on the internet in my room, dinner packed to eat in my room while I watched the hockey game, approved my parking after checkout to attend a business meeting). The in room free internet was fabulous. (Below it says I booked the harbour wing but when asked the staff upgraded me to the tower with a view.)

    The water did not drain out of my bathtub during morning showers causing me to have to stand in the water. Although I reported this each day they were not able to fix the problem and it may have been that the shower head gave off such a generous stream of water that the drain could not accomodate it.

    All the hotel employee's are very nice and very helpful

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    location was great lots of parking,flexable with check in and out

    we stayed in the old wing of the hotel and the floor was very sqeaky,not really a big deal

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The largest of the waitresses, at the hotel's restaurant, has a very loud voice, and is somewhat garrulous.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The staff was organized and friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms were spotless and exactly as advertised. The location to downtown Victoria was perfect.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    It's location near the Inner Harbor was excellent.

    While it was a clean, comfortable room, it was a very basic hotel similar to a Motel 6.

  • Couple
    8.2

    Good location, just a few minutes from the harbour (no sea view though). Very clean room. Would stay again.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Only had a resturant for breakfast that was awful. Checked out after one day. Did not stay the 3 days I was booked very misleading ad.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Location is great, price for the older section was very good. Staff is excellent, knowledgeable, helpful, courteous.

    The restaurant food is bland. The hash browns should have been called warm whites. The service was very slow and yet the food was not hot when served. The wait staff was friendly and helpful but the kitchen needs to be kicked up a notch.
