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...

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...

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...

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....

We had a wonderful stay here! We were fortunate to hit it right as rates went down...but before skies got too gray. There is absolutely nothing bad to say about the rooms -- among the best I've ever stayed in, anywhere in the world. And BIG. Great bathtub in the swanky bathroom, nice products, comfy beds...great for couples or family....
