Spacious and Comfortable
Very spacious and comfortable room. Excellent location: right next to Beacon Hill Park and just a few minutes walk from the Conference Centre, Inner Harbour and Downtown. Friendly and helpful staff. And all of this for a reasonable price.
Mark, gb6 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Easy walking to all Sites.
Excellent location. All downtown Victoria within walking distance. Hotel good value for all that it provides. Reception staff always available to offer help. You do not need car for this location. If travelling from Vancouver get the BC connector. You will enjoy yourself more. The Empress “Afternoon tea” is a must. Take in a MacPherson Theatre production.

Very good 8.0
Excellent location to explore Victoria
Hotel is in a great position, 5 mins walk from inner harbour. Room was a good size, bathroom very compact, no air-con in bedroom combined with heavy bedding made the sleeping difficult, this isn’t the first hotel we stayed at on this trip around upper west coast that doesn’t appear to allow for seasonal hotness in their bedding. Front desk was very friendly and helpful in eating recommendations. Overall it ticks a lot of boxes at a reasonable price.
