The Oak Bay Beach Hotel! A Real Winner!

Posted 28-May-2015
Pros: Everything! The staff were always very helpful! We ate at two of the three restaurants and the food was excellent!
Cons: Maybe a shuttle service from the airport would be nice!
Location: It was a 20 minute walk to Oak Bay village and an hour walk to downtown. You could also rent bikes for touring.
I was visiting the Oak Bay area of Victoria. We needed a hotel that was in the area and this hotel did not disappoint! It was bright, clean and the staff was very welcoming! We arrived earlier than the 4 o'clock check in but they let us leave our bags so we could do a walk about. We ended up getting our room 30 minutes later. It was a beautiful room with 2 Queen size beds, lots of space, a little kitchenette and a nice large bathroom!

Fun and relaxing

Posted 26-May-2015
Pros: The staff was super friendly and helpful, the rooms immaculate, the view stellar.
Cons: The massage therapists are not registered or licensed like in the US, so the massages were quite disappointing in terms of knowledge and pressure.
Location: In addition to the above, took a seaplane to Vancouver and back for a day. Much to do there, but we rented bikes and toured Stanley Park.
We were so pampered by the staff and the spa - we did not want to leave. This hotel is spitting distance from the touristy bustle of Victoria, and yet world away in terms of ambiance. You enter a small, charming, lovely little town with quaint and inviting shop lined streets, passing lovely homes with gorgeous flowers blooming in the yards on your way to your destination. The rooms were lovely - especially the one with the water/marina view and balcony. The pools were wonderful - you can order drinks and food there - we brought our own bottle of champagne to enjoy. For dinner we were shuttled by the hotel's Mercedes to and from the marina restaurant, which was excellent, by the way. I cannot say enough about this wonderful getaway hotel. Close enough to the action, but miles away from the noise and bustle.

Unexpected surprise

Posted 23-May-2015
I saw the strong ratings when I booked this hotel, but what I experienced was even better than I expected. The staff was top notch in service and attentiveness, including the front desk, housekeeping and restaurants. The food was so good in The Snug Pub that we ate there instead of venturing out to find dinner. We also ate breakfast in the hotel every day. The room was comfortable, spacious and clean. The best part was the view of the water. We will definitely return. This is one of the best places to stay I have encountered on vacation.

Pros: Super nice view and ample of free parking is provided.
The room is nicely decorated. Staffs are very efficient and helpful. It would be even nicer if a seaview room was chosen.

Gorgeous mineral pools and first class hotel

Posted 14-May-2015
Pros: The pools, the pub, the rooms,the bathroom
Location: You can wander through the Uplands to look at gorgeous estates, or shop at funky stores in Oak Bay
Our stay at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel was amazing. The setting is gorgeous, and the detailing of the planning is amazing - from monogrammed towels to the essential-oil scented air outside by the mineral pools. Our favourite hotel in Victoria!

Weekend getaway to Victoria with kids!

Posted 08-May-2015
The hotel was very nice. We checked in and they gave us a quiet room with a slight view of the water as no water view rooms were available. The room was very nice and they even provided a white robe for our 5 year old daughter which she loved to wear to the pool. The free wifi and parking are great and it is in an upscale and quiet part of Victoria which we preferred to the busy downtown area. We enjoyed the cafe for dinner and room service breakfast. We lucked out Saturday with great weather and did the mineral pools. So warm and nice but the drink/ food service at the pool was a bit slow. They were very nice even though this was not a kid hotel.

Lovely hotel by the sea!

Posted 07-May-2015
Pros: The property and interior of this hotel is very beautiful!
Cons: Fewer children (with their parents) in the pools behaving like it is a public swimming pool! We would have liked more peace and quiet at the pool.
Location: Bike rentals at hotel, shopping and restaurants close by, downtown Victoria, Inner Harbour, Craigdarroch Castle close by car access.
This is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. The staff are very accommodating, helpful and friendly. The rooms are very clean and the beds are very comfortable. The in-room fridges, microwave, dishes, etc. are very convenient. We have stayed at this hotel for a 6 day get-away both this spring and last spring. We appreciated being able to bring in our own breakfast supplies on occasion. This hotel was our "beautiful" home away from home and allowed us to enjoy the magic of Victoria.

Home away from home

Posted 27-Apr-2015
Our Oak Bay Beach Hotel experience is really good. Staff are really nice and very helpful. I will definitely comeback again next year. I love it's location if you want peace and relaxation you can also just go and have a walk along scenic beach drive or to the marina. We met a couple of really nice and friendly residents when we had a walk. It is also close to downtown if you want to explore more. Definitely enjoyed my stay here. This will be my home away from home.
