Inn at the Union Club

On a recent business trip to Victoria, friends and members of the Union Club arranged my stay there. I found it to be a very quiet and comfortable place. I did not have time to experience the common areas. My room was pleasant although a trifle crowded. The bed was very comfortable. The halls were quiet. It was a pleasure to be a guest there.

We love the Union Club. It is central to many tourist sights including the harbour and the museum, it is quiet, the rooms are clean and the beds and pillows comfortable. The facilities are excellent, including a superb reading room, dining and lounge areas. There is an old world charm to the hotel. The staff are helpful and friendly. There is a dress code but it is unpretentious. We highly recommend it and will return in the near future.

We will gladly stay at the Union Club again when we visit family in Victoria.

The positives include central location; a nicely-maintained historic building; fully updated rooms and bathrooms with fine linens, towels and bedding; excellent food and service; kind and courteous staff, and facilities which include a workout room and (in season) a rooftop terrace . There was tremendous value in a city where even a senior rate at a national flag budget hotel serving kids traveling soccer teams costs $90+ Canadian.

The only negative is parking. Overnight non-member guests need to park in the closest “parkade,”which is a short walk or drive: one block up and one block over. This would be a breeze in the summer but in the rain and sleet of December it was a pain. More complex logistics come from the fact that the parkade closes at 7:00 p.m. on some nights, so if you are out in the car for dinner, you will need a fob to enter the ramp. The club has only one fob, and to get it you must stop at the club, run in and run back to the car! Lastly, the system of accounting with the ramp involves paper vouchers, one per day (not per stay). It is not the easiest arrangement and we hope it can be improved.

My main reason for returning to the Union Club is that it offers a British-style venue, especially in its public rooms. I especially enjoy the very large reading room with its genteel atmosphere and ample selection of periodicals.

As other establishments renovate and diminish the presentation of their British heritage, I appreciate the Union Club for its support of Canada’s English/Scottish legacy.

Richard and Michael offered great service which I and my guests for breakfast appreciated. And the location couldn’t be more central to Victoria. Dan in Vancouver.

Liked this place, but so far in Victoria due to location, quiet room and comfortable bed. Good bar and a Library. A bit anachronistic – there is a dress code – no jeans – and I like that. Very helpful staff. Breakfast was mildly disappointing, just like all breakfasts I have ever had in Canada – so similar. I had hoped for a bit more imagination.

Old members club with stunning turn of the 20th century interior of the old British empire feel.Great,classic atmosphere complete with reading room,billiards room,great breakfast and super-friendly and helpful staff.Perfect location,will stay here again.Thank you.

The historic Union Club building in the heart of historic Victoria is a unique find. This was our first experience with a reciprocal club, and it was a very good experience.
We walked to most sites that we wanted to see (Legislature, Chinatown, etc.) and the seaplane tour and whale watching tour were also a short walk from the building. The staff recommended that we take a larger whale watching boat, and I completely agree as the smaller zodiacs get you to the whales faster but lack stability for good whale photos and do not have restrooms. The concierge graciously arranged most of our tours to include a private vehicle to Butchart Gardens. I definitely recommend the private vehicle option as the driver provided a commentary about Victoria and departed when you wanted to depart versus waiting on other people.
The entire staff was very attentive and the food served at breakfast and dinner was outstanding: try the Eggs Benedict for breakfast–the smoked salmon, egg, and avocado was delicious. The bar and dining environments were quiet and relaxing–very “civilized.”
We will definitely make a return visit.

I really enjoyed doing lunch with my fellow university student members of a political party club and the currently serving politicians. The classic interior decor and the company of the “high and mighty” in politics makes the entire buffet lunch feel like a high up summit of business, political, educational, and NGO movers and shakers. It would feel like a real world conference if there were security layers, media, national security, local security types, with all their equipment and vehicles surrounding the outside. Just being in the main room makes you feel important. The food and drink just adds to the sense of satisfaction.

We spent 2 nights there. Its location is perfect, its historical ambience is great…there are some negative points about this hotel, first it has some particular rules which we did not know about them and it has been brought to our attention by a waitress in a really rude manner for example talking on cell phone in lobby and resturant. The other thing that made me uncomfortable is I have been told that I can not wear hat in the breakfast.I really appreciate their rules and it would not have bother me if I had been told in a proper way.

We enjoyed a Saturday evening roast beef dinner. Service is incomparable. Food is presented with style and is delicious! You can choose a more casual venue in lounge or enjoy a more formal meal in dining room with reservations. Whichever you choose, the experience is always perfect.

Stayed at the union club for 4 days and absolutely loved the hotel, staff and amenities were great. Our room was beautiful, loved the library and had wonderful breakfasts everyday. Special thanks to the team at the Union club for making my first visit to Victoria truly amazing.

We were a little bit surprised that this hotel is a (ex-military ?) clubhouse. It’s charming full with historical assets, a dresscode included. Standard rooms are too small, no place to put your clothes in a decent hanger or wardrobe, so the suitcases were unpacked and annoying in the small room. For the rest a very interesting place with friendly and accommodating staff from reception to restaurant. Hotel is very well located, close to the harbour, shopping street and Chinatown. Excellent experience and reminds my time spending nights in the Belgian Military Clubhouses in Germany a long time ago.

Union Club is the place to stay in Victoria. Excellent service with attention to detail. Great layout of the restaurant. We will remember our interaction with Colin, Amanda, Michael & Richards for a long time. Kudos Union Club.

We stayed one night, May 30, and dined and had breakfast next day. I used the fitness room . The facilities were excellent ,the food was as well, and the service impeccable. It is a beautiful club in a perfect location. No parking but a public lot is one block away. We will definitely be back.

We stayed here in May having come to Victoria to attend a wedding at the Catherdral. The Club was everything we wished. The room was perfect and it was great to have our own place right in the centre of town. Having the suite meant we had our own sitting room to lounge in when we wanted some down time. Really essential when you are travelling for any period of time. The bed was comfortable and there is a bath and shower. I could not fault the accommodation and was delighted to have stayed here. The staff on reception were friendly and attentive. And although there is no tea and coffee in the room there is a complimentary service at the foot of the stairs at all times. Breakfast was very filling and certainly ample as you will not need to eat lunch. The club is right next door to the Empress Hotel which has just opened its afternoon tea room since being renovated. We also visited Butchart Gardens which is a must at any time of year. We took the local bus out which was easy and about $2.50 for a day’s pass. Very cheap.

This was our second stay at the Union Club, and even though we’d booked a smaller room than previously (and that was simply because nothing else was available), our whole stay was again completely enjoyable. The staff are friendly, welcoming and courteous, and the facilities are very good indeed. Even though renovation work was going on, this was timed for minimum inconvenience. The lounge and the bar are great areas to relax, and breakfast is well presented. Highly recommended and we’re looking forward to our next stay.
