As a local tourguide I travel all over the world. I have been in my fair share of hotels.
So I can definately tell you what is good, bad and not worth visiting.
The BW Carlton Hotel in Victoria?
I have stayed in this hotel many many years and many many times.
It almost feels like coming home.
The location of this hotel can nót be better!
Everything you need is in crawling distance!
There is a Seven Eleven across the street, a local supermarket around the corner, great restaurants in the two connecting main Streets (Douglas and Government Street) and you do not even need to go anywhere!
The hotel has a great restaurant on site.
It is called London Tube.
You can have a good breakfast there and also perfect lunch or dinner.
Try the Salmon Burger with fries!
The staff of this hotel is more than friendly.
They greet you upon arrival, are profesional and are willing to help you with anything.
If you would like to get some information about the city? The receptionist will give you detailed info. Do you want to book a whale tour? Ask the receptionist, they can book it immediately for you! They also have the latest updated info with what company has had whale sightings that morning! They are in contact with the suppliers.
Do you need a bike? Talk to the receptionists; the hotel offers a free bike rental for 3 hours.
Energy left? The hotel has a very good fitness room.
Dirty clothes? The hotel has a laundry facility for two loonies with free soap.
What I like more?
It is a silenc hotel. So after 23:00 one of the two elevators shuts down and it is quiet in the rooms and on the floors.
So you can enjoy your stay to the max here!
I have been in all rooms possible and the beds are great!!
Some rooms have a small kitchen and the supermarket is close by.
Otherwise there is a supermarket on Yates if you need more stuff.
Do not think any further.
Book this hotel, you will not regret it!
