Helms Inn
Very pleasant stay
The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The hotel is very well situated to allow you to park up and walk around downtown. The car parking charges are very reasonable. Would book again if we return to Victoria.

Great little hotel in good location
Great little hotel in good location. Initially we thought the room was noisy as it overlooked a busy road but we found that the traffic noise was quiet at night. The manager did offer to move us but we decided to stay. Kitchen was fully equipped so you could cook if you wanted. Free parking. No breakfast but manager recommended a great place in Cook Village
