We went in and walked the halls a bit. Walk down to the bengal room. You can feel the halls as they undulate below your feet. Over time there have been additions and renovations and you can almost feel the age of the building.

Magnificent (but expensive). A beautiful place to stay, while enjoying the wonderful city of Victoria. Be sure to have a meal there (and/or a drink at the excellent bar), and explore the magnificent interior -- even if you're not staying there!

A must see in Victoria. Home the historic English afternoon tea Excellent building to visit for a meal, snack or cocktail. Expensive but worth it. You can also just do the walk through.

A singularly beautiful spot on the island! The building itself has a certain charm to it both inside and out. Very picturesque!
