Great Hotel & Great Service

Posted Jun 20, 2015
Pros: Easy walking distance to all of the Victoria downtown attractions/restaurants.
Cons: Absolutely nothing - we thought it was great.
Location: Lots of restaurants, pubs nearby as well as the harbour. At night our room had a view of the Parliament buildings which is lit up at night.
Very friendly staff and a great room with comfortable bed.

Downtown close to conference centre

Posted Jun 17, 2015
The Magnolia is only ~2 blocks away from the Fairmont Empress, making it a great alternative to staying at the Empress. I was attending the conference and the Empress was full so took a chance on the Magnolia. The room was gorgeous and there were many extras. Arena toiletries, lush housecoat (the best I have ever had!), Keurig coffee, chocolates and apples. I DID get an unexpected upgrade so am not sure if this is standard. Everything about the hotel was wonderful, the only criticism I had was in the middle of the night the heating/airco system was shaking a few times which disturbed my sleep - maybe a function of the age of the hotel? But overall, I loved it and would love to go back!

Great location, close to everything!

Close to all the sights, didn't have much of a view in our room but it was clean and bright and the service was excellent. Very close to some of the best food in town. Would stay there again.

Great location, great service great value...

We particularly liked that The Magnolia was close to most everything--tour buses to Butchart Gardens, The Empress for high tea, the harbor, The Royal BC Museum, the Parliament building, shopping and restaurants. The room was nice, the bed comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. Definitely gets an excellent recommendation from us.

Great location and services

Posted May 22, 2015
Pros: Perfect location to almost everywhere. The staff was very personable. Great spa and breakfast. Housekeeping took very good care of us!
Location: Great location, enjoyed high tea at The Empress Hotel, The Museum, Parliament Building, harbor cruise, walking on the wharf enjoying fish and chips.
Our stay at the Magnolia was very relaxing. We enjoyed seven days of enjoyment. Our room was very comfortable and clean. We walked to almost everywhere we wanted to experience and were able to enjoy a nice glass of wine at the end of our day at the catalano lounge downstairs or 10 Acres across the street. Overall they provided a great customer experience and we would return and stay at the Magnolia Spa....
