Oak Bay Beach Hotel

I booked a last minute weekend getaway to Victoria on a whim and contemplated which hotel I was going to stay at. Like many others, I initially thought I wanted to stay at the Fairmont that I had heard so much about, until my boss recommended I look into Oak Bay Beach. I was hesitant at first – it seemed to be a bit “off the grid” from downtown Victoria. But don’t let that sway your decision… it’s a quick 10 minute drive! The Oak Bay area is gorgeous – you’re RIGHT on the water, a quick walk to the marina, and in a beautiful neighbourhood (I ended up driving around for half an hour just looking at houses in the neighbourhood for fun!)

The hotel itself is paradise. It has a grand feeling to it the moment you walk in, and the staff is ridiculously welcoming, friendly and accommodating. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable (I had a “residential view” room… I couldn’t justify the $125+ to upgrade to an ocean view). Room service is 24/7 and a good selection of food at any hour. The Snug pub is cute (great pub food and well-priced drinks), the Dining Room is nice/has a good menu as well. There’s a theatre on the property which looked like it would have been a fun time, but they weren’t playing any films at the time I was staying.

The amenities are AMAZING at this hotel. There is a (very well heated) pool and two hot tubs on the edge of the water. Sitting in the hot tub with a glass of wine… what else could you ask for?! I’d also recommend treating yourself to a spa treatment… I went for the half hour facial and I hadn’t felt that relaxed or refreshed in weeks.

Overall, I don’t have enough great things to say about this hotel and the people who work here. No disrespect to the Fairmont (I love Fairmont hotels, too) – but I’m so glad I ended up booking Oak Bay and that I now have a “go to” home away from home when I make future weekend getaways to Victoria.
