落ち着いた立地

Posted 28-Aug-2015
Pros: 玄関周りに大きなハンギングバスケットが飾られていてとても綺麗でした。
インナーハーバーから徒歩10分もかからない距離にありますが、住宅街の中で車の通りも少なく静かな環境で過ごせました。 レストランとパブが併設されており、食事もまずまずでドリンクも部屋に持っていく事が出来て便利でした。 私の宿泊した部屋は、一番リーズナブルなタイプと言う事で冷蔵庫が備えられておらず、また建物が少し古いのか床が平面ではなく歩いていると「おやッ?」と思う所がありました。(724号室) バスタブはついておらずシャワーだけでしたが、シャワーヘッドは2か所有り快適でした。

Highly Recommend

Posted 23-Aug-2015
The hotel is charming and super clean; the staff friendly and helpful. A room decor update is all that is needed to transform this from a really good hotel into an excellent hotel. In the historic residential district, it's wonderfully quiet but only a few minutes walk to harbour, park, and downtown. Highly recommend.

Lots of character, close to downtown Victoria

Posted 21-Aug-2015
Pros: Great pub downstairs!
Cons: Hard to improve heritage without losing the heritage - so nothing.
Location: Victoria BC - walking distance to fabulous park, ocean or downtown.
I chose this hotel because of it's location - close to town and my mother's home. It is a heritage building - so a lot of stairs, stained glass and character but no coffee maker/fridge in the room, coffee is available in the lobby from 6am on. I had one night in a garden suite which was like staying in an apartment I could live in (full kitchen including coffee, and a bedroom) and 4 nights in a single room which was funky but doable. Staff was great!

Great location central to most of the city.

We loved staying at The James Bay. It's very old, so be prepared for very small rooms and bathrooms. But, the staff was excellent, the location was perfect and the room suited our needs perfectly. It was within walking distance of everything you'd want to do in the city, and we enjoyed the ambiance. If we return to Victoria, we will definitely stay here!

It was a pleasing experience.

Posted 21-Aug-2015
Pros: Kindness of the front desk and the cleaning staffs.
Cons: It would be nice to have a microwave in the common area to heat up some snack or meal that are hard to find in the area.
Location: It's within reasonable walking distance from the harbor walkway, we were able to enjoy the walk at night and feel safe.
We were able to rest and slept well. The front desk and the cleaning crew were polite, kind and resourceful.

スタッフが親切

Posted 17-Aug-2015
Pros: スタッフが親切。
Location: 少し歩くけれども、徒歩圏内といえる場所に大型スーパーがある。
エレベーターが無いけれども、大きな荷物を持っていたら、フロントのお兄さんが気付いて、さっと手伝ってくれました。周辺は住宅街で静か。

Nicely maintained and furnished hotel

Posted 12-Aug-2015
Pros: Very pleasant staff.
Location: Within walking distance of a lot of tourist attractions.
This is an old hotel with lots of period furniture in the lobby area. Rooms each have their own bathroom. Be advised there is no air conditioning. Fans are available in the room. They have a very nice outdoor seating area on the second floor deck which is very pleasant and cooler. we selected this hotel due to the close walking distance to the parliament building and BC Museum. wifi was excellent with strong connections. Pleasant stay for overnight.

Clean bedroom old style, window very small. Nice common room, appreciated the free coffee in the morning. I appreciated also the free parking for the time being.
