Friendly, professional staff, excellent quiet harbour view room. Had popcorn shrimp in the pub, was amazing whole shrimp not quarter pieces, light batter. Mike at check out was warm and friendly, will definitely come back. Parking, close convenient and free was a bonus. Will definitely recommend to friends and come back.
I stayed here with my partner the first week of October – we stayed for two nights.
The location is excellent – we arrived by sea plane from Vancouver (you have to do this flight at least one way!)., and the hotel is just a short 10 min walk from where the planes come in. it is, as it says, right on the harbour. This wasn’t noisy for us, but of course was off season – if you are particular about noise you may want to consider having one of the back facing rooms I guess.
The room itself was large and spotlessly clean. it is true to say that some of the décor was a little dated – in the bathroom particularly so, but given the price paid and the location this was easily overlooked.
In the room were TV., tea/coffee, iron, ironing board. There is also free Wi-Fi in your room which I didn’t find a problem with at all.
The hotel has a restaurant so you can easily get breakfast if you don’t want to go too far – the breakfasts were huge and the coffee refilled constantly.
The staff both in the restaurant bar and hotel were exceptionally friendly and helpful. My partner was having trouble phoning friends on the island and the reception staff helped him look up the number in the telephone book to check the number he had was correct and even dialled the number for him (local calls are free as well). In addition on our last day, we had checked out but left our bags to collect later and my partner realised that he had lost his wallet. when we returned to the hotel and asked at reception, this had been handed in by the cleaning staff who had found it down the back of a chair in the room – so our very grateful thanks to them.
The hotel is within easy walking distance of all you may want to do in Victoria and I would certainly recommend .
I often travel on my own and would feel quite safe staying here as well.
Rooms have all the modern conveniences, including in-room coffee/tea and some have harbour views and kitchenettes. Downstairs in our lobby we have our terrific Swiftsure Restaurant and Lounge. It is perfectly located in the heart of Victoria, along the breathtaking Inner Harbour.
