Nice and peaceful!

Posted Apr 29, 2015
Pros: Great room, quiet, quaint, and comfortable. Quite clean. I loved the gardens.
Cons: Bedding was old and frayed.
Location: Grocery store close. Close to ocean pathways - i did some running.
Staff were really friendly. I had a quiet room. There were events happening at the hotel so parking was a premium, and there was lots of set up happening at the hotel. I didn't stay for breakfast as i left quite early each day. Grocery store is close to walk too. I enjoyed the gardens and the view from my room. You could hear the fountains. It was very quiet!

Interesting hotel in quiet location.

Posted Apr 27, 2015
We booked this hotel because it was close to an event we were attending. Interesting historical building with lots of character. Very large bedroom with balcony overlooking garden area. Clean and comfortable. Suited our purpose. Would stay there again if we needed to be in the Esquimalt area. Note that this hotel does cater to group events. There was one happening while we were there but it did not cause any problems with noise. Not the place for someone who wants to be downtown or who doesn't appreciate older buildings.

Victoria Gem

Posted Apr 26, 2015
Pros: The staff and management go out of their way to create a welcoming and warm experience in a beautiful setting. Each room unique, and well appointed.
Cons: Regarding dinner set up, cloth napkins would complete the experience for us.
Location: Just a short taxi ride from Downtown...wonderful museum, great shopping and high teas galore!
Visited here, years ago...Charming Gem...fabulous staff...restful and elegant setting...felt like welcome guests in a BBC Manor House. The rooms are imaculate, decorated with period pieces, with some interesting balconies, sun porches. The morning breakfast of homemade croissants are wonderful to wake up to...and could disappear quickly! The bar is friendly, and even though there is no restaurant, this is solved by an effective list of meals delivered from local restaurants...set up in their pretty dining room! The result is a wide variety of wide dining options in a private setting. The staff makes you feel like you are the only guests in the Manor House! This venue is perfect for special occasion celebrations. We will be regular visitors!

Wonderful

Posted Apr 14, 2015
We stayed in the victorian room. It was very comfortable but romantic. A very niced size room with a balcony. We drove so cant say much about walking distances. There were many places you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine.
