Salt Spring Island, British Columbia
Reviewed 6 January 2017

We had one of the rooms with a harbour view which is beautiful. Room was fully equipped and clean. Staff friendly and included breakfast should suit most anyone and in a nice dining area with windows to the outside. All in all very good value and in an excellent location with safe parking which is a priority for us.

We stayed at the Embassy Inn for 3 nights over New Year's. It was the ideal location to take in the festivities in the inner harbour area on New Year's Eve. As always we had friendly service, a clean and comfortable (and warm on cold nights) room, and the best hotel breakfast in town.

When we drove up, I thought "uh oh" as there is an older part of the hotel at the front. However, the main part in newer and very inviting. The room was clean and the included breakfast was one of the best we have ever had in any hotel in this price range. The location made walking everywhere in this...

Thank you for the review. There is an older building across from the embassy Inn main entrance which belongs to us with 33 rooms that are currently closed. We are planning on replacing the building so, some time soon the building will be replaced. We hope to see you again back at the Embassy Inn.

Our room was clean and cozy. The hotel is located next the the parliament buildings, so basically everything within James Bay and Downtown is within walking distance. The complimentary breakfast exceeded my expectations! They had eggs, bacon, potatoes, bagels, fruit etc. etc. No need to leave the hotel before lunch! :)

The outstanding attraction to this hotel is the generous and plentiful breakfast which is included in the room price. The breakfast room is large and bright, surrounded by windows. The selection is superb with anything one would want for breakfast - waffles, muffins, biscuits, bread, juices, fruit, cereal, yogurt, bacon/sausage, potato nuggets and the best scrambled eggs I've ever tasted...

Stayed downtown for the fireworks and the atmosphere and had a great time at this hotel. It was extremely quiet, especially considering what night of the year it was. The room was clean and the staff were very friendly. Breakfast was amazing (bacon, eggs, waffles, pan fries, etc) was going to take a picture, but it was too delicious to...

Reviewed 29 December 2016

Having stayed at the Embassy earlier this year, we knew to expect a spotlessly clean facility, comfortable room, excellent buffet breakfast and free parking. We were not disappointed. The breakfast included 3 hot items which varied daily, as well as waffles, cereals, fruits, breads, muffins, yogurt and beverages. Lots of variety for a different breakfast every day.
