I can't say enough good things about our stay at this resort. The attention to detail went beyond what I have experienced anywhere else. The ocean views are spectacular! The mineral pools and spa facilities were exceptional. The room was so comfortable and quiet; there was a soaker tub with an ocean view, granite countertop in the kitchenette, and electric...

What a beautiful, elegant, and absolutely luxurious hotel! It is very classy and has an old world feel but looks incredibly new and clean. The architecture and furnishing is first class and the service is wonderful. We came to celebrate an engagement party and were upgraded to a stunning ocean view room! It was such a pleasure to wake up...

We just had our first stay at this hotel and I hope it's not our last. What a great experience on every level. All the staff we encountered we're genuinely friendly and helpful and good at their jobs. The room was superb and comfortable, and the pools exceeded expectations. Having grown up in Victoria, it was wonderful to see how...

Absolutely loved our one night stay in a king bed suite at this hotel. The suite was beautiful and clean with a ocean view. Especially loved the soaker tub and two person shower. My husband and I had a couples massage at the spa there which was absolutely dreamy. We opted to use the mineral pools around 6pm which was...

This hotel location right on the shore is really lovely. We had an ocean view garden room that enabled our elderly Mom to walk straight out of the room with her walker to the pools and spa. Getting back up the hill was a bit more of a challenge for her but anyone without mobility issues would be fine. The...

Rooms are very spacious and well laid out. Bathroom is huge and there is a lovely fireplace in the room. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever been in. We had a garden view which was lovely but some rooms have ocean view which would be stunning. There is a small kitchenette with dishes, fridge, microwave...

This fully rebuilt hotel is first class. The rooms are spacious, the food service (especially the Snug) great. Great ground with fantastic views over the water. The front desk staff are particularly helpful.

Exactly as listed. Lovely rooms, great staff, ok food. Location is a bit removed from most of the attractions but Victoria is small enough. The Theatre was not showing anything but looked to have an impressive array of shows.

This is a nice hotel with lots of great details in the room. Service is impeccable. Nothing to complain about. The highlight of the stay was the outdoor heated pools. 3 pools with different temperatures, ranging from warm to hot. Kids loved them. The change room is with the fitness and spa room. Free drinks and snacks were nice. Lots...
