A charming place close to the waterfront

Posted 25-Jun-2015
Pros: Has some charm the new places lack.
Cons: Administration was invisible in the midst of a fire drill and there was no follow up communication. They should work on this.
Location: Walk by the waterfront and shopping district. Run or bike along the water. Enjoy the many restaurants.
Aside from a fire alarm pull in the night, our stay was good. The place has some old charm to it and it in un-pretentious. There is a pool and hot tub, game room, laundry room and billiards room. I would go again.

Great location and comfortable

Posted 18-Jun-2015
Cons: The bathroom could use a little upgrading and there should have been more than one outlet to charge devices
Location: There were tons of restaurants, the Empress Hotel, inner harbour, whale watching, walking tours, bus tours, Royal BC Museum, and carriage rides
I enjoyed my stay at the Royal Scot because the staff were friendly and helpful, my room was clean, it was affordable and it was within walking distance to a lot of tourist attractions.

Nice hotel with central location.

Posted 07-Jun-2015
Great hotel with nice amenities, with an easy walk to shopping and restaurants. Only issue is the tour buses that line up on the street next to the hotel and keep their motors running sometimes for an hour or more.

Pros: Everything!!
Location: Close to Inner Harbour, Parliament Buildings, Fisherman's Wharf and shopping
We always stay at the Royal Scot! It is close to downtown and the staff and amenities make this the only place we stay at! Beds are comfortable and rooms are always clean and well cared for. Restaurant on site is excellent. Some rooms have full kitchens so you can have meals in if you prefer.

Very convenient for Victoria's key attractions

Posted 02-Jun-2015
We received an upgrade to a suite with a very well equipped kitchen, dining area and two comfortable bedrooms. Shop at hotel was well stocked with useful foodstuffs and Reception gave us directions to a large supermarket within walking distance. Waterfront and ferries, bus terminal, Museum, Thunderbird Park, Beacon Hill Park are within short walking distance. This was a peaceful hotel which well deserves its fine reputation. It has a well priced restaurant attached. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
