Perfect for a complete Victoria experience.

Posted 31-Jul-2015
Our family of four stayed in one of the Garden Suites which was essentially a very large 1 bedroom apartment with a pull out couch. It was very clean and comfortable (the pull out bed even had a comfy mattress) and an incredible deal for the price. The front desk staff was so helpful in every way - including making recommendations for our visit, allowing early check in, storing our bags after check-out, etc. The location was great. Walking distance to everything we wanted and needed (Royal BC and Legislature - 7 min walk, Empress, Ferry, waterfront - 10 min walk, Old Town -15 min walk) while being situated in a quiet residential neighborhood. Beacon Hill Park is only 2 blocks away and our morning walk there ended up being the highlight of our stay. We loved getting the flavor of what it might feel like to live in Victoria, while being total tourists. I really can't say enough about this hotel and recommend it highly to anyone staying for just one night (like us) or for an extended stay. Thank you JBI!!

Nice hotel within walking distance of town

Posted 24-Jul-2015
Pros: Room was great. We loved the restaurant! They gave us a disc. coupon off all food for our stay. Food was wonderful for breakfast & dinner.
Location: Location is great. Easy walk to town and back. Since it is in a residential area it is very quiet.
Quaint hotel in Victoria that was better than the typical hotel chains. We knew the hotel did not have air conditioning and even though the temperature was 90 degrees F, our room had a large window that we opened for a very pleasant breeze that cooled the room down at night. We also knew the hotel had no elevator so we were prepared to walk stairs with our smaller luggage only. Some people only had monster size luggage and they struggled to carry them up the stairs. If you have large bags for a long trip, be prepared to transfer just what you need to a carry-on size bag to take to your room.

Nice Hotel within walking distance of everything

Posted 23-Jul-2015
Pros: It was clean, homey, unpretentious and felt safe.
Cons: In very hot weather there could be an issue as there was no airconditioning in the room. There was a decent fan if you needed one.
Location: The hotel is located within a few blocks of the government buildings, the BC Provincial Museum and the inner harbor.
We arrived a bit early for check-in so went to the restaurant and had lunch. Food was tasty, well priced and there was a good selection to make choices from. The room was adequate in size but clean with a decent TV and a remote that was easy to use. The bathroom was very large, modern and clean. We parked our vehicle and didn't need it again until we left the next day. The location is perfect for anyone who likes to walk a bit. There is a good pub next to the restaurant in the lower level of the hotel if you want a cold beer.

Old hotel in James Bay area

Posted 20-Jul-2015
Pros: Chest of drawers was very good. Hallways were spacious
A number of little things made our stay annoying. Room very small for the price. No bar to hang onto getting in and out of the bathtub, no separate little shelf for soap and shampoo. No extra shelf for toiletries in the bathroom, needed because the area around the sink was very small. I would have liked a couple of hooks for wet towels or to hang nightclothes on. In my travels to the UK and Germany a comparable booking would provide breakfast, at minimum a continental one. No tea/coffee maker in the room.

Quaint and quirky

Great location....close to the Inner Harbour....no AC which was tough in the hot summer weather...stairs were uneven which would be difficult for seniors (no elevator)...charming decor, great staff, Emily Carr's ghost to thrill you at night!!!

Old fashioned Haus mit toller Atmosphäre

Posted 16-Jul-2015
Pros: wir hatten eine sehr großes sauberes Zimmer
Cons: -
Location: Nähe vom Stadtzentrum, Nähe Parlamentsgebüude
Wunderschönes altes Haus im Kolonialstil mit viel Atmosphäre, geräumige saubere Zimmer, Kaffee- oder Wasserausschank in der Lobby, sehr zentrumsnah gelegen, das Meiste kann zu Fuß besucht werden. Wenn nochmals Aufenthalt in Victoria ansteht, würde ich es wieder auswählen.

Character hotel walking distance to attractions

Posted 14-Jul-2015
We loved this hotel! We booked three rooms for three families (with children 2-6) to attend an eightieth birthday party and extended family reunion. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the location was perfect to explore many of Victoria's attractions: Beacon Hill Park, the waterfront, the shopping districts, the Royal BC Museum and all the stops on the harbour ferries' circuit. The hotel was clean & comfortable and quiet at night. We made good use of the discount for the resto/pub on the premises, which served up excellent breakfasts. We happened to stay during a hot spell and appreciated the fresh air from the open balconies on each level -- lovely places to sit and read or to meet our family members to plan our activities. The decor and furnishings suited the age and style of the hotel, giving it a one-of-a-kind charm. We would love to come back!
