The Oswego exceeded my expectations. The staff were so kind and friendly. The room was immaculate and had a beautiful view that we hadn't expected. The location was perfect. I would definitely stay there again!

This was the best hotel we stayed at in our trip to British Columbia. We booked a two bedroom suite on top floor, with amazing wrap around patio and terrific views of Victoria. I really enjoyed the location, as it was in a quieter residential area, but not far from inner harbor and convenient to fisherman's wharf and jogging path...

The room was great; nice kitchen and overall layout. Staff are friendly and efficient. There is no A/C, but there are ceiling fans. A couple of days were a bit warm. Great location close to the water and lots of restaurants nearby.

Be warned that there isn't air conditioning in the rooms. Our room was stuffy and warmer than I'd expected. No drapes either makes room bright by 6 am. We had to keep windows open to get cool evening air and birds woke us up around 5 am.

Thank you for your review and our apologies if your stay wasnt exactly what you expected. Victoria's climate dosent normally warrant air conditioning and there are many hotels that do not have this for this reason. Each suite has ceiling fans and doors and windows that open. All of our suites also have blinds instead of drapes. Even though we...

Reviewed 31 July 2016

An excellent choice of hotel in a quiet neighbourhood. A close walk to the town but far enough away from the crowds. If you seek a degree of peace this is an excellent choice. I would recommend taking your breakfast at the hotel rather than be tempted into cheaper options locally which are very poor.

The hotel is in a great location, close to downtown but away from the noise. The staff was friendly. Rooms were nice, a bit generic. Loved that there was a turn down service including mint water and chocolate.

It was nice hotel for weekend getaway. Helpful staff, comfortable room, underground parking lot, walk-able distance to tourist attractions. It was especially good deal since we got half price of original one through Expedia.
