Stayed for one night with a room with a balcony over looking the golf course and ice rink , lovely view. Room and bed were very comfortable. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast in the morning in the restaurant . It is a bit remote but that is it’s charm with golf , swimming and soon tennis for a great vacation. There is also a shop and liquor store for your convenience.

We rented a suite and dined in the restaurant and bar. Our rooms were cold – 63 degrees when we got there. We used the thermostat to increase to 68 but after 5 hours it was 65. We called the front desk and they offered blankets. Like I want to walk around in a blanket. Housekeeping brought a space heater and showed me that we needed to put the thermostat way up to 86 to get it warmed to 68-70. Also, there was a place set up for free coffee, but nothing was ever there. No teas or coffee, ever, even though there was advertising. They claimed free parking but do not have enough spaces. We had to park over a block away, carting suitcases. Food was mediocre at best and was screwed up both times I ordered.

stayed two nights here while in town on business. was upgraded to a golf course view suite – very nice. Surroundings were great with all newish buildings and the golf courses and natural settings right there. However, if you’re looking for outside restaurants or even an interesting coffee shop, not too much around. Had to go outside to get to the gym, as it is in a separate building. A bit of a drive from anywhere else. On the plus side, off season rate provided very good value.

I regret to have not written my review before now but here it is, in all it’s glory. My daughter worked with the staff for four months planning a surprise one night stay in the PENTHOUSE suite and it was worth every minute of planning and every penny she spent.

Walking into the suite left me speechless! This suite is very well appointed and offers everything you need before you know you need it. It was very tastefully decorated, spacious and incredibly comfortable. The floor to ceiling windows were phenomenal. I truly cannot say enough about this suite, we had a hard time leaving when it came time to check out.

The staff were amazing before, during and after our stay. With the assistance of the resort staff, my daughter and her friends, my daughter planned and executed a ‘traditional family Christmas’ dinner for me. We comfortably cooked and hosted a full sit down dinner, for ten, in the dining room.

The surroundings are breathtaking and there is a lot to see if you wish to explore. Although we didn’t use it, there was also an outdoor skating rink and skates which your could borrow.

We enjoyed spending some time in the lobby bar, during happy hour, a lot of great options for food and beverages.

My daughter also surprised me with the gift of the two hour “Coast to Cloud” spa treatment at the Sante Spa, on the bottom floor of the resort. We enjoyed a glorious treatment for two in their Crystal Room

I doubt that we can ever top this visit but, I assure you, it won’t be our last visit!!

On first arrival the hotel appeared beautiful. Quiet setting and opportunity to relax. Check in was quick and Sarah informed us that we had received an upgrade. We were grateful for this but surprised at check out that when I checked the final billing we had been charged for the upgrade. The bill is not presented on checkout, but rather they ask if it could be emailed. I had asked for the printout as I needed to make sure all our meals had been charged for. Had I not asked for the bill I would have gotten a shock on checking it when I got home.

The room was spacious and well decorated. The bed was incredibly uncomfortable. It was soft and lumpy and the sheets were too short for the bed, this meant that every time I got into bed my feet touched the mattress. By far the most uncomfortable bed I have had to sleep in.
Housekeeping was different everyday. Some days the cups were replaced, other days they neatened the bathroom.
I like that they think green, however, would recommend only placing one set of towels in the room per person, we had towels for four people.

We ate most meals at the restaurants at the hotel. Service started off good but once the weekend arrived service all but disappeared. The server forgot to bring water after we ordered it with our coffee and food took awhile.

We were fortunate to have a gift certificate for a two night stay in a one bedroom suite and we went in mid-December.
We stayed in the clubhouse building and had an amazing view of the golf course covered in snow with an ice rink below.
The staff were so friendly, the valet guys always greeted you warmly and weresource very nice. Check in was fast.
The room was beautiful and was so comfortable you could easily stay at the property all day and not be bored.
The room service breakfast was so delicious!
We will absolutely go back.
The only downside is its a little difficult to find. The signage needs to be improved. We were arriving at night and in the snow. We got turned around twice. But once you get there one time, it’s easy to find again.
Excellent property, great amenities.

We visited a friend who lives in Langford and who advised us to overnight here, We did not know Bear Mountain, but we were treated to a lovely stay that reminded us of Chateau Whistler. Our beautiful suite had a bedroom, a well decorated living room and modern kitchen. I was just a little disappointed by the vapid electric fireplace. We were in the Fairway building and our windows overlooked lovely forested areas. It was a lovely stay.

Booked from Expedia a year ago so awesome deal. When checking in were treated like preferred customer. Shane at front desk upgraded our room for gift to us. Fourth year we have gone for our anniversary there. Beautiful pool and hot tub. Various places to eat so you don’t have to drive. Staff even sent up chocolate strawberries. Went the extra mile for sure. My favourite place to stay near Victoria. Great shopping at bottom of hill!

We stayed for the first time at Bear Mountain in Victoria, BC. Our reaction was – why did we wait so long. Gorgeous spot to visit. Hotel staff are friendly and provide great attentive service.
Food and restaurant is great and very reasonably priced.
Mathew the front desk manager makes you feel special the minute you arrive.
We loved it and will be back and back and back some more.

My wife and I stayed at the Westin Bear Mountain in Victoria on the nights of the 21 and 22 Oct 2016. I was really impressed with the one bedroom suite. Could not have asked for more, the room was so large and impressive.

Fantastic views over the Jack Nicklaus designed golf course. Wonderful hiking trails and mountain biking trails. Rooms are very clean, and very very comfortable. We had a room facing the parking lot, but it had a wonderful balcony and still great views.

We stayed for two nights this summer for a wedding. Bear mt is excellent for a weekend getaway.
Rooms: are extremely spacious, love the balconies, it’s worth it to make sure you are facing the mountains.
Activities: we love both golf courses, and this time we indulged and took in the spa = which is an absolute must!

Stayed at the Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa for a conference. It is a beautiful hotel which is located 30 minutes from downtown Victoria.

Was greeted by the valet staff before I even enter the hotel. Had quick service checking. My room that I had was descent size with 2 queen beds. It had a good size balcony overlooking the golf course. As for the room amenities: small kitchenette, which included a microwave, cookware, coffee/tea maker, and a small refrigerator. The bathroom is good – separate shower and bathtub. Free Wireless internet available are available in rooms.

Sante Spa in located in the hotel. Gift store is located in the Golf shop which is located downstairs in the hotel. Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa has a shuttle service to the hotel from downtown Victoria. It costs $15 one way.

Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa has 2 restaurant. Both located on the main lobby level. Bella serves Breakfast and Dinner. And the Masters Lounge serves a All Day Menu. While there, I tried both places and the food is excellent. Prices are reasonable too. There is also a outside lounge that overlooks the golf course. Also located near the hotel is Jack’s Place, a pub style restaurant and is a liquor store which is part of the Jack’s Place. A fitness facility is located just outside the hotel. It has gym, pool, and Pool Side Grill & Bar.

Stayed there with my family for a week. We stayed in the Clubhouse with views of the golf course. Very nice facilities, pool and spa. The staff was stretched on a number of occasions which impacted the service level and knocked down a star.
Overall, a very nice stay and I would recommend.

Over the last couple of years I have been a huge fan of Westin resorts, stopping at both Whistler and Mammoth, both were welcoming, friendly and offered decent food at both the bar and the restaurant.

We therefore expected the same from Bear Mountain and unfortunately were let down.

On a arrival we pulled up at the valet parking to be met by a member of staff. We expected him to help with baggage and offer to park the car, neither of which he did.

At check in we were told our room was not ready at 2.30 pm, no problem we had a drink at the bar, at 3.30 we we returned to reception to be told the room still was not ready. We were offered another room on a lower floor.

Beautiful surroundings! The accommodation was excellent and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. Don’t worry about not being close to Victoria – it’s a quick short drive. We don’t golf, but I would definitely stay there again!

We visited for 5 days. Hotel was full. The room was clean, large and rustic appointed. Slate floors. We had a deck w/teak patio set. Lovely grounds. Tons on hills and challenging trails. Resort fee includes bike rental, pool, large jacuzzi. Spa was full so didn’t use but looked awesome with mineral pool. Reservations recommended. The views are no less than stunning. Rain or shine. One of the most beautiful resorts I have stayed at. Jack Nicolas designed 36 hole course flows out gently down the valleys below the resort. Be aware, remote from town unless you bring a car but there is local bus transport. We were deceived entering the resort thru a residential community. Didn’t make sense. If you are active this is a resort choice for you!

westinbearPoolFirst time staying here. Loved the hotel and the service. Did not play golf but would have loved to. Food was fantastic also. Will be back before the summer is over. The view from the breakfast area and the patio overlooking Mount Baker were stunning.

Just had a wonderful weekend at Bear Mountain. Everything about the weekend was amazing. Great golf, great service and of course the heavenly bed. There was 8 of us in our group and each and every one of us had a blast. Can’t wait to get back there.
