nice inn and spacious room

Posted 01-Feb-2017
This is a nice inn with vintage facilities and style with spacious room and bathroom. Very quite everyday from morning till night. Most of people in this inn are seniors and quiet. People staying in the inn can get 10%off coupon for meals the restaurant downstairs which offers cheap but nice food. I recommend this place for people with light sleep.

Great place to stay

Posted 28-Jan-2017
Pros: Everything
Everything about this place is just fine. Plenty of parking; close to the beach and the park. Less than ten minutes walk from downtown - close to some good restaurants - try the Heron rock bistro! - and the Inn itself offers a good breakfast as well as lunches and dinners.

Quaint, comfortable

Posted 26-Jan-2017
The room was small but clean and comfortable. The hotel itself is charming and the staff were friendly and helpful. I enjoyed breakfast at the diner downstairs each morning, long walks at the nearby park, inner harbor and breakwater, and tea at the pub downstairs every evening. Wish I could have stayed longer. I will book this hotel next time I'm in town. The price (probably a winter rate) was very reasonable.

Very nice hotel.

Posted 16-Jan-2017
Centrally located: a couple of blocks from the waterfront and the legislative buildings. Loads of character- high ceilings, lovely, grand foyer with prints by Emily Carr all around you! A very polite, knowledgeable staff in attendance made check in and out a breeze. Wifi available and good sized rooms with large, private bathrooms and high ceilings. Each floor had small sitting areas for book reading and quiet retreats. An overall gem!

An historic spot in a quiet Victoria neighborhood.

Posted 31-Dec-2016
We enjoyed our stay in this older hotel; appreciated the vibe of less overwhelming technology; a very peaceful room with a great bed and lovely views to the charming street with vintage homes. The staff was great. The complimentary b'fast Christmas morning was wonderful.

Character Inn

Posted 12-Dec-2016
Pros: Clean and quiet
Cons: Our room was warm and the only way to cool it off was to open a window but it suited the cozy Inn
The Inn is over 100 years old and they have done a great job of keeping it up while keeping the original feel.
