Charming old world elegance and walk to downtown.Posted Jan 4, 2014
Pros: A charming quiet hotel, a short walk from downtown, is a true getaway from the commercial hotel routine with a friendly professional staff that excels
Cons: I'm not sure. To complain there is no elevator would only spoil the charm, and the staff are more than willing to help with luggage.
Location: Park and walk! That's all you need to do. All of quaint, English themed Victoria is at your feet.
We chose Abigail's for an impromptu quiet New Year's Eve getaway from the usual busy party scene. It was everything we had hoped for. Quiet, quaint and charming it was a delightful getaway. It was a pleasure to park the car for two days and visit Victoria on foot. Close to downtown sightseeing attractions, shopping. There are numerous restaurants easily within walking distance and the list of recommendations provided by Abigail's proved unerringly excellent. A tribute to the hotel's attention to detail. The full 3-choice chef prepared hot breakfast was a pleasant change from the usual breakfast bar. Chef even prepared a special combination of on-hand ingredients to help me deal with New Year's morning.

Quaint B&B centrally locatedPosted Aug 25, 2013
Cons: Can't think of anything except perhaps an elevator but of course that would be difficult and cost some of the charm.
Location: Only a few blocks from the whart, Empress Hotel, and yet quiet location.
We had a wonderful weekend stay after returning from a cruise. Accommodations were excellent. Breakfast, bed and staff were all first rate. Only negative was the lack of an elevator to get our luggage upstairs but staff did that for us. Can't say enough good things about our stay. Highly recommend.

Extra little touches made all the differencePosted Aug 18, 2013
Pros: Complimentary everything.
Location: Ten minutes walk to the tourist waterfront and ten minutes walk to trendy Cook St village and the superb Pizzeria Prima Strada.
Breakfast was exquisite and the complimentary hors d'oeuvres served early evening were sophisticated and allowed us to go for a walk before being hungry enough for supper. The staff were friendly and professional. We loved the library with DVDs to borrow. Most of all it was a hotel where so many 'extras' were included that there was an atmosphere of generosity and luxury. The quad room was a little tight for parents and two teenagers and the decor is a tiny bit decadent now. Overall though a lovely establishment kept immaculately.

Lovely little hotel and a pleasure to stay...Posted Jul 1, 2013
Pros: The room, the bed, the breakfast, the friendly personable and excellent service
Cons: Noisy neighbours
Location: A few minutes from the harbour behind the Empress. Perfect.
A delightful old style hotel with very comfortable rooms with amenities. Shower/toilet area perhaps a little small but manageable. Bed so soft you sink in it. Delicious breakfast included. Only a 1 night stay but most enjoyable. Note no lift (elevator) which could be a difficulty and one minor point which could be a concern to some, the sound attenuation between rooms was not good. I could hear a guest in the next room snoring and at 7:15am his wife took a telephone call from which I could hazard a very good guess at her age; the part of England from which she came and some details of the conversation. She was not loud - but was higher-pitch and may have Been talking towards the wall - who knows. It was not an issue but could have been embarrassing. It didn't spoil our stay and I wouldn't suggest not staying at Abigail's because of it. Let's face it, Some people talk in the street as if speaking to the world these days !

An off-the-beaten-track gem.Posted Jun 19, 2013
Generally upbeat staff, service, and assistance for special needs or queries, good breakfasts, somewhat out-of-the-way location and somewhat problematic access for elderly or disabled persons.

"Perfect for relaxing break"Posted Jun 11, 2013
Pros: The position and the staff
Location: Just out of the main area of Victoria but within walking distance
A perfect place to enjoy Victoria, close enough to walk to the centre but far enough away to be peaceful. The staff were more than helpful and recommend places to eat, directions etc. the breakfast was delicious with delightful choices. Excellent DVD library. Early evening hors d'oerves were lovely and the public seating areas are comfortable. Bedroom was comfortable and clean, little touches like welcome cookies, water bottles and gorgeous smelling toiletries completed the stay

Nice spot to stay in VictoriaPosted Jun 9, 2013
Very friendly staff. Nice ambiance with updated, modern rooms. Nice complimentary tea and snacks and breakfast. More of a small European hotel experience and very nice for a change. Good location and on site parking.
