Magnolia Hotel Victoria BC

I found the staff were very friendly greeting you no matter how many times you come and go. The lobby smelled wonderfully of a tea that was very flavourful. The room was clean, bright and open. The bed was comfortable. Location to everything downtown was great, easy walking distance to everything.

Great facility and excellent service. Comfortable rooms and bed. Valet parking. Continental breakfast is included but is just average, I suggest ordering a la carte instead. Shuttle service to the airport is provided for CDN$ 20.-

Magnolia continues to deliver excellent service and amenities. The rooms are especially well appointed and the bed is superb not to mention the Nespresso coffee maker with a little stash of real cream or milk in your refrigerator. The Nespresso coffees in the morning make up for anything else in your day!

Great old victoria mansion, beautiful rock work. Was under reno when there but would go back! Loved the deep tubs and amazing comfy mattress. Staff was accommodating, but wish the bar was open a bit later 🙂

The Location and the ambience of the Tudor style manor was wonderful. I enjoyed having the carriage room at the top of the Inn, with the skylight. Comfortable bed, Cable TV, and the good breakfast. I appreciated the stable and reliable wifi.

What an amazing place! The hotel is just beautiful, the room we had was giant and had a beautiful balcony overlooking the gardens. The staff were great and you could spend a lot of time in the gardens. It was a little out of the way, which made finding a nice meal close by difficult (but not impossible!). It would be great if there was a full service restaurant in the hotel.

Magnolia Hotel Victoria BC

If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay and be spoiled it is the Magnolia. All the employees are so nice and helpful. When we were checking in we requested a room on a higher floor but they were unable to provide that as the hotel was fully booked. The front desk staff apologized for not being able to move us but provided us with two vouchers for a hot breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the breakfast the next morning. When we were heading out for the evening they concierge handed us an umbrella to use as it was raining a bit. This was also very thoughtful. The rooms are superb. Even our room on the second floor which did not have a view, had a lovely little terrace to sit out on. The bed and all the amenities in the room are top notch. Best place to stay in Victoria.

I was just a guest at the Magnolia for 2 nights.
We were greeted by friendly staff. We had stopped in early to find out what time was best for check in, I was informed that we could be checked in then and there.
We were given a room on the corner facing Douglas St.
The room itself was clean and comfortable. There are thoughtful touches to the room, chocolates beside the bed, extra toiletries. The staff were very helpful, our tv wasn’t working properly, the issue was dealt with very quickly.
All was well until around 10pm, the bars on Douglas St, were so loud, we couldn’t sleep. Loud bass, drunken yelling. It was awful, it lasted until 230am.
This is not a fault of the hotels.
I appreciate that they have no control over what goes on outside the hotel and any hotel in the downtown area will have the same issue.
I did ask if it was possible to change rooms, it wasn’t possible on the Friday night but might be for Saturday.
Our request was granted, the staff were wonderful, not only did they move our room to a quieter location but we also received an upgraded room.
We were so grateful for the level of service received.
I sincerely do not put blame the hotel, but I wish I could have been warned that it could be an issue, or been provided ear plugs when I called the front desk at 1am asking for resolve.
Regardless we were grateful for the outcome, the manager herself spoke with me and apologized and went above and beyond to ensure we had a good night sleep the next night. We did have a wonderful sleep the 2nd night. Again the room was clean thoughtfully put together. The fireplace was a nice treat on a raining night. I highly recommend the Magnolia, the service is unsurpassed, from the valet employees, the front desk, to the management.

The rooms are cozy and private. The bathroom floors are heated and the biffy is separate fro, the main bathroom, which my husband loved.Nice touch with a cookie in the room free of charge.The front end staff went over and above . The only disappointment was the room service menu was completely lacking. there is a sushi menu but upon wording form that menu we were told that the chef didn’t show up and there for sushi wan’t an option.The sampler platter was great and the calamari crisp.We would have gone to the restraint but were told that it had been booked for a couple months and so we needed to dine else where, which was part of the reason why we booked there as my husband is a bit of a foodie.We will go back and I would still recommend this resort … Just happened to be a staff issue

Large comfortable bed room with outside seating area. Great amenities. Nice bathrooms with large Jacuzzi tub. Very quite room. Nice cozy Gas Fire place.
Great spaces beds and duvets including pillows. Would stay here again.

They sold too many groupons for their restaurant. Reservations at reasonable times are very difficult to get. They are booked up a week in advance and we could not get a reservation before 8 pm even with 7 days advance notice. We have not been for our dinner yet.

They care about their guests! They will attend to you and your needs. As most everyone points out, the rooms are awesome. We stayed four nights in Foxglove sleeping in a deliciously comfortable bed. We arrived in our room with a bottle of wine, chocolate covered fruit, and a greeting card congratulating us on our anniversary. Such a nice gesture. The huge whirlpool tub, four post bed, elegant window dressing, and fireplace set a romantic tone for our 32nd anniversary getaway. Read all the five star reviews below, I vouch for all the high reviews of this wonderful little hotel.

They serve breakfast everyday and every day, it’s a well thought out menu of delightfully tasty morning fare. Kudos to Josh, the young man who cooked our beautifully plated dish every day.

This is the place to stay in Victoria.

Everything was pretty much perfect. The service was excellent, the room was impeccable, from the cookies on arrival to the comfortable bed, and the thick, fluffy towels.
The included appetizers and breakfast were delicious.

Was so comfy! Bed was amazing to sleep on, bathroom was huge and nice deep tub! Loved the delux king room. And breaky was good 🙂

Attentive staff: it was very windy that night and I was brought candles in case power went out.

This property was rich in history and had a homey feel… if you consider a miniature Downton Abbey “homey.” The rooms are all well appointed and each have their own individual charm. What I appreciated the most was that the staff were so accommodating, warm, and kind. Firstly Heather was incredible, she made sure all my finicky requests were made as I am celiac and needed help to figure out where I was and where I was going. Heather was very professional and patient with me and my lack of direction. Breakfast was also super delicious. As for dinner there is a collection of menus at the front desk from restaurants that will deliver to you if you don’t feel like leaving the grounds… YUM! Kenan took the time to talk to me about the history of the property and all of it’s notable occupants, he told me about the different rooms and the rich, soirted and beautiful past of the Inn, which as a solo traveller and a person in need of a distraction was a great way to pass the time. Kenan is wonderful and truly an asset to the property! Finally Randy, he was equally as kind and knowledgeable. He took the time to point me in the right direction everytime I got lost.. and like clockwork he was downstairs with my coffee order ready to go the moment I made it downstairs… even though his shift had not started yet. Furthermore, I was in Victoria for a not so happy reason and the Randy took the time to say hello everyone morning and night upon my return. Truly wonderful, scincere,considerate staff…. and based on that alone I will not stay anywhere else in Victoria as long as this property is still open and available. Also if I would have know that such a beautiful property existed I would have had my wedding here! The venue is ideal for a small (60 ish) person, intimate but luxurious wedding. Truly Magnificent!

We were upgraded upon arrival, to a beautiful corner room on the 6th floor, a perfect view of the parliament buildings all beautifully lit for Christmas. Enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the restaurant. All staff were very friendly and helpful. A few things needed attention, the in room fridge wasn’t working, the knife of cork screw was dirty, and a fan in the bathroom needed!!
All in all it was a lovely stay, and I look forward to returning sometime.

The location of the Magnolia makes it perfect for delicious restaurants, shopping, movies and the sea!
The room was spacious, cozy, large screen TV, huge bathtub, the best in room coffee maker I have
ever used. The service at front desk was high quality. Even dry cleaning is returned in less than 24 hours. I can hardly wait to return! This hotel is a must!❤️‼️
My husband and I spent two marvelous days at the Magnolia Hotel. We were upgraded to a room with a view of the harbor; much appreciated! The room itself was lovely and the gas fireplace made it very relaxing. The location is wonderful as it is right downtown and only two blocks from the harbor. The staff were very friendly and our breakfast (included in the price) was very good. Can’t wait to make a return visit!!

I stayed here in December with my four-year-old daughter so we could see Butchart Gardens. The room was lovely, with a very nice view of the pool and marina, and it had a huge bathtub. There were two events going on at the resort so we couldn’t eat in the dining room but we were given a room service credit, which was nice. Food was good. Not amazing, but good. We used the pool and hot tub. The pool is heated, but it was still pretty darn cold at this time of year. The hot tub was very nice, but there is no protective grate or anything over the light and I scalded my knee on it.

This lodge is located on the water in Brentwood Bay.The receptionist offered us sparkling wine at check in, The rooms are accessed from a covered outside walkway, there are stairs & an elevator. The rooms are very comfortable with a king bed and an electric fireplace in the corner. The furniture fits in with the relaxed theme, the rooms overlooked the bay & there is a good sized deck to enjoy the outdoors. The bathroom had shutters that allowed one to talk to their mate while soaking in the tub. The showers had a stone surface on the floor. The towels and linens were all good quality. There was an outside pool and hot tub area, this would have been nice to enjoy if we had more time. There was a spa off the lobby, the hotel had a restaurant off the lobby as well as a pub in the complex. This hotel would be a great place to kick back & relax a few days
