noisy

Posted 19-Apr-2015
Pros: The staff were great, bed comfortable, price right.
Cons: Hotel restaurant could be open for lunch instead of just dinner with lower prices.
Location: The ferry was within walking distance, tour buses, airport shuttle all close. Museums, shopping and restaurants close.
The hotel was close to interesting destinations, the harbour, inner Victoria, however, the noise level of occupants was loud. We could hear arguments, plumbing, stomping on upper floor.

Nice hotel close to many other things to do.

Posted 14-Apr-2015
The hotel is a beautiful building and looks old, which adds to it's character. I liked that it was very accessible to many other businesses, so we were able to walk to where ever we wanted to go, that was very convenient. Parking on site was easy to get too and safe, if you use the underground parking area. We parked outside in the parking lot and we felt just as safe. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfasts for each of the days we were there.There was a good variety of food to choose from and they were very tasty. I liked that I could have hot porridge. The staff were very kind, and helpful. The rooms were clean and the beds were firm, no lumps or sagging beds for us. We did find the pillows to be too small and either flat or lumpy. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay. There weren't the frills as some other places may have, but we didn't need them. I liked it because it was clean, inviting and comfortable. The big chairs by the fireplace were a cozy place to read. Thanks for a nice clean place for us to stay.

Older Property, Fabulous Visit

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Pros: Good location, nice breakfast, terrific WiFi. Good service at front desk and in pub/restaurant.
Cons: Change to self service coffee with breakfast. Being served was nice but when it was busy the waitperson assigned had trouble keeping up.
Location: All Inner Harbor attractions within 10 minute walk: Parliment, Royal BC Museum, Fairmont Empress, etc. Ferry to Port Angeles is across the street.
We stayed two nights on a leisure trip, and our expectations were exceeded. Huntingdon Manor is an older property made up of several buildings together on the same plot. We stayed in the main hotel on the second floor. The room was clean, though the carpets and drapes were a bit dark and perhaps faded. There was a bit of visible touch up work in the bathroom but everything worked and was clean. We had a partial view of the Inner Harbor (we could see seaplanes moored to the wharf across the water) and on our second morning a gull landed on the railing of our balcony-- could be a plus or a minus depending on your inclination. My wife is a bird nut so it was OK for us. We had free parking, breakfast, and WiFi. Parking was a breeze, there is an underground lot accessed by key card and a side lot above ground, plus fairly easy street parking if you prefer. From what I was told the free breakfast was new for HM. It was served in the hotel building's restaurant and was nice, with biscuits, chocolate croissants, toaster waffles, and cereal- a bit lean on fruit but still terrific for a free breakfast. The free WiFi was the best we found on the trip,we were even able to use oovoo to place a video call home. The location on the inner harbor, and right by the ferry terminal, is terrific. In one morning we hit four major area attractions and were never more than a ten minute walk from the hotel. HM was a good value for our trip.

Good hotel for price

Posted 09-Apr-2015
The hotel is okay, it's pretty old and they were doing renovations while we were there RIGHT outside of our room (which we didn't know before hand) so we couldn't really be at the hotel during the day. They did accommodate our pet though which is nice. The best thing about the hotel is the staff who are VERY friendly and accommodating and helped us with anything we needed.

Charming

Posted 06-Apr-2015
Pros: Great location and staff, nicely landscaped
Cons: The manor could use a revamp in the older room I stayed in the first nite, but it was very clean.
Location: Great location across from the Inner Harbour with lots to see and do.
The first night I stayed in the Huntingdon Manor but the room faced a carpet cleaning truck in use, so the following day I was moved to the Gatsby Manor which was just my cup of tea. Its an older building full of charm and my room overlooked the Inner Harbour and had a little balcony. The properties share a dining area and provide free breakfast each morning, which was well put out and with a nice view of the Inner Harbour across the street. I cannot say enough about the front desk staff - they were quite helpful, friendly and really made me feel welcome.

Nice retro hotel near the harbor

Posted 03-Apr-2015
Pros: Location and staff
Cons: Wi fi was a bit spotty
Location: It is on the Harbor, so most attractions are in walking distance, we did not drive the car during our entire stay
Great older hotel with nice staff, a good breakfast, and easy free parking. The plumbing is a bit loud and the tube TV made my kids laugh. The hotel is in the process of renovating and it seems will soon be up to date. Very affordable and quaint.
