Gettaway

Posted 23-Feb-2017
Pros: Pool, spa, hot tubs, rooms. The beds are supremely comfortable. Great location.
Cons: More off season specials.
Location: Close to marina, great views, close to good shopping. 15 minutes from main city.
This is the fifth time we have stayed at Oak Bay Beach Hotel. This is our favorite on Island escape. The surroundings and staff are second to none. We would highly recommend this to all. Thank you once again.

It's a beaut

Posted 20-Feb-2017
Pros: Beautiful location, river otters on one side, crooked old mansions on the other
My family of four stayed in adjoining suite and double room for a weekend, and loved every moment. We grabbed muffins and coffee from Kate's in the morning, and had a few pizzas and beers in the Snug throughout the day--all top notch. We soaked in the hot pools each evening, under the stars, and felt quite relaxed, as a result. The rooms were just what we expected--comfortable, clean, and a little opulent.

Beautiful mineral pool

Love this hotel! Was a bit disappointed with the TV not working at night, but they did offer a complimentary upgrade for our next stay to make up for it.

We were a bit lucky!

Posted 16-Jan-2017
Pros: Mineral Pool and Hot Tubs are fantastic. Felt bad not having the kids, but you're welcome other guests! Breakfast was great too.
Cons: I'm sure there are things, but none off the top of my head.
Our initial room really was very disappointing. My expectations were so high as I'd never stayed here and had heard wonderful things. The room was in the corner, so out my window I could see every balcony as well as the hotel entrance (even from the bathroom). I guess it was a city view, if you consider the hotel the city. Luckily, the hotel was only half full so we were able to get upgraded to an Ocean View.....wow, what a difference! The staff were very friendly and accommodating to our request, I guess someone has to have that other room and we were the unlucky ones, but at least only for 5 minutes!

A Real Treat

Posted 08-Jan-2017
Pros: Almost everything was as good as its gets. The heated outdoor pool, jacuzzis, the steam room, easy parking, pleasant and helpful staff.
Cons: Music irritating. Unpleasant, screechy -- especially at breakfast. Impossible to read in room -- low light. Little place for clothing.
Location: Great walking area. Easy to get to downtown area. The museum is superb. Some great restaurants (avoid the touristy ones).
A wonderful eight days and nights! Room couldn't be more comfortable.

Great weekend retreat

Posted 01-Jan-2017
Pros: Everything was top notch. Staff was great, food was great and location was outstanding
Cons: The fireplaces in the rooms, aren't exactly fireplaces!
Oak Bay Beach hotel was a great destination getaway. The heated mineral bath pools were the highlight for us. We could enjoy them from morning to night.

Good location with ocean view

Posted 28-Dec-2016
Pros: Well designed with high quality finishes. The gardens and amenities were high standard
Cons: Room service meals need improvement
Location: Oak Bay shopping and Penny Farthing Pub and restaurant are attractive. Excellent walking path alongside the ocean.
Generally a very good experience. Only complaint was a room service grilled cheese sandwich was rubbery and the fries were soggy. We did not eat it and the hotel refunded the cost.

Impressed!

Posted 21-Dec-2016
The room was much nicer than I expected. There was also the surprise of a mini kitchen area with small fridge and microwave. This was super handy with toddlers!
