Nice, family setting

Posted 30-Apr-2016
Pros: Complete kitchen. Nice bed.
Cons: Bathroom is kind of small. The bathtub very slippery. Someone next door turned up radio very loud at 7:30 AM.
Location: Near the center of Victoria.
We stayed there for a night. We stayed in their guest house which is a separate house outside the main building, which was a nice place except there was no elevators and the stairs were steep. The inside was nice though. Pretty good hotel in general.

History, Peace and Quiet

Posted 27-Apr-2016
This historical Inn is a favorite of ours. Close to the Inner Harbor area but, far enough away that it is very quiet. We go here every year for our anniversary.

Stadtnahes und günstiges Hotel

Posted 22-Apr-2016
Pros: Die Lage und der Preis
Cons: Eine grundsätzliche Renevierung
Location: Victoria. Stadtzentrum in der Nähe des Parliamentsgebäudes
kleines Zimmer mit sehr kleinem Bett für zwei Personen. Das Hotel ist in die Jahre gekommen. Alles etwas "nostalgisch".

great central location close to the inner harbour

Posted 21-Apr-2016
Pros: Good beds and bathroom. Pub and restaurant have good food and reasonable prices. Great location.
Cons: Could use air conditioner and screens on the windows.
Location: Very close to the inner harbour and other bars/entertainment/restaurants etc. Short walk either way to the ocean.
Hotel is very old and historic but well maintained, the staff are excellent. Modern shower/bath and comfortable beds. No air conditioning though and no screens on the windows so the odd fly does get in when the windows have to be opened to keep the room cool. Record temps while we were staying so it got a bit warm. Love the city but may not stay at the JBI if it was the heat of summer, it was April when we were there.

Walking distance to downtown function

Posted 17-Apr-2016
Pros: Great location and very clean.
Cons: Put deaf people in the rooms above the kitchen.
Location: Walking distance to busy harbour and great restaurants.
Great location. Quiet until 5:00 AM then the reason for the cheaper priced room kicking in. Above the kitchen. This is not the way you want to wake up and then stay awake. Building is quite old and absolutely no sound-proofing between the our floor and their ceiling. (I do hope it was fire-proof). The room was very comfortable and clean. Even with the window open on the second floor, there was great clean air and no noise. At 5:00 AM the wake up sounded like a barrel falling down stairs outside our door and then it didn't quit. Pots, pans and loud voices. At 7:00 the garbage truck was a nice change from the banging and clanging. Incidentally, the food was great for breakfast.

Classic English Style hotel

Posted 04-Apr-2016
Comfortable walking distance to museum and downtown area. Restaurant and bar downstairs were good and convenient. I would advise that the double bed room is too small for two people!! I think if it is summer you should try for a room facing the North. We would return again - to a queen size bedded room! Very cleans and well cared for.

Historic hotel near downtown sites.

Posted 14-Mar-2016
Historic hotel that offers a central, easy to walk everwhere location. Rooms clean and quiet. Some rooms are a little worn and charmless. Make sure to ask for a nicer one with a view.

Nice hotel, great location.

Posted 11-Mar-2016
I was attracted by the relatively low price and the great location. I really like the hotel. It was a bit quirky, very clean, nice staff, and very quiet. However, if you need a tub, an elevators, or a queen bed, better go elsewhere.
