Oak Bay Beach Hotel is amazingly beautiful. The mineral pools & hot tubs are so beautiful to relax in as you stare out to the ocean.... The rooms are immaculate down to the last detail. The food was so delicious as well... Highly Recommend !!!!!

This is one of the best kept secrets of Victoria. The hotel is simply outstanding. The amenities (spa, pool, hot tubs, exercise, theatre, restaurant) are outstanding! The views are simply breathtaking! The hotel is situated close to the Oak Bay Marina and shares the same view and is within walking distance of all of the wonderful shops, restaurants, and coffee...

I was expecting Nice....Was thrilled to find Elegance! From the moment we entered the Hotel we were treated with 5 Star Service. Our 'Boutique Suite' was made available to us early. The room was spacious, comfortable and stocked with a full kitchen. Had we wanted to shut the doors and stay inside, it was possible. However, we ventured out to... More

We found this 5 Star Resort on Trip Advisor and loved the reviews...so we tried it for our 55th Anniversary Celebration. We spent four fun-filled and pampered days only leaving the Hotel to dine at area restaurants. I phoned the hotel in advance and was able to reserve great seats to a dinner-show on the night of our anniversary and... More

Second time at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel, and both my wife and I just love it here. Rooms are clean, comfortable, spacious, and have a huge soaker tub, walk-in shower, and dual sinks. Had drinks and dinner at their pub last night, and everything was excellent, including the salmon burger, which was one of the best pieces of salmon... More

We had the opportunity to spend two glorious nights here over the Remembrance Day 2016 weekend. It was quite relaxing and comfortable, and definitely would come back if the opportunity arises. The waterfront location may be a bit out of the way if you are not driving (5 to 10-minute drive into downtown Victoria), but free parking is provided. The... More

Stayed at Oak Bay for our daughters grad from U of Vic. Can't say enough about the level of service and friendliness of the staff. Great location right on the ocean and in the nice area of Oak Bay. When I did go downtown I was chauffeured at no cost right to the harbour where I caught a float plane.... More

Enjoyed a weekend trip, the hotel is in fantastic shape and quite impressive great rooms and killer views. The restaurant pub served up some good food and good local beers. Enjoyed watching the stormy ocean from the pool. Free parking! I'd stay here gladly again.
