Stayed for two nights in late June 2022. Rooms were very clean, bed was comfortable, quiet. However was not advised on check it that there is no room service unless requested. Breakfast is very limited .
We stayed 4 nights at the Royal Scot hotel. It is close to all attractions in Victoria and all are within easy walking distances. Parking in hotel grounds is plentiful. The staff were welcoming, cheerful, professional and very helpful. The hotel was clean, smart and light. Our room was large, bright with a balcony and large amount of storage space. The bed was huge and very comfortable with good pillows. There were good blackout curtains. There was a small refrigerator which was very useful and there was a good coffee machine. There was a large TV with wide choice of stations. The bathroom was large, very clean and had a powerful over-bath shower with good choice of shampoo, conditioner etc. The room was quiet and we slept very well. This is a really good hotel and we loved our stay - by far the best we have stayed in in Victoria and we will return.…
We came to visit Victoria and chose the Royal Scot due to it was close to the Coho/Clipper Belleville Docks. It was a good, old school motel/hotel, the room was very large and included a safe, a mini fridge, a hot water kettle, a coffee pot, some basic dishes and cutlery, and microwave. The wifi was strong. The whole place was classic in its layout but everything was clean and spotless. Easy walking distance to the Inner Harbour, the Parliament, and then also a supermarket and several small shops, a liquor store, some restos, and a yoga studio, the opposite way a few blocks up Menzies St. The horse and carriages used the streets nearby as they came and went with tourist rides, the sound of the 'clop clop' and horse noises in this quiet neighborhood was a nice, calm, plus.
Lovely old hotel in a fabulous location. Has all the amenities and then some. I would absolutely stay here again. My only complaint is we could hear people next door quite easily. Fortunately they weren’t noisy. Staff is very accommodating.
Stayed for three nights, we were upgraded on arrival and stayed in a suite which was very comfortable with good beds, separate lounge and kitchen. Only three minutes from the harbour area at Victoria. Situated in a quiet peaceful area, would recommend.
After our first trip to Alberta to enjoy the Rocky Mountaineer Train excursion we decided to spend another few days in Victoria. We had previously spent a few days in Victoria but really wanted to extend our vacation & enjoy more of the area. Had previously stayed at the Royal Scot hotel so decided to once again stay there as it was so close to the activities in the downtown core. We really enjoy the area & options available to do & see. The Restaurants all great to visit for lunches, dinners or a quick Happy Hour. The in house restaurant/pub was not available for our entire stay due to staff shortages & the experience of Covid. Good for breakfast the days it is open. The staff were extremely pleasant & helpful with our enquiries & providing assistance, especially Maya. Thank you. The rooms were comfortable, quiet as we had a room facing the street behind the building. Loved seeing & hearing the horse carriages going up & down the street. Yes the room was warm but we tried to use the balcony door & windows open as much as possible to have a comfortable sleep. There was fans provided however we choose not to use it but let the fresh air in. The staff tried to provide all quests with a comfortable staff & answered enquiries the best of their ability or research the information on your behalf. Thank you a most enjoyable staff in Victoria, we shall love to return.…
Stayed 2 nights for a family event in Victoria. Pros: well situated and can walk down to the Harbor and was clean and quiet Cons: pricey for size of room- we were in smallest room and was still quite spend - if you go in summer, note that there is NO AC!!! It was warm and on 4th floor with only one window- boy was it hot and stuffy!!! High humidity and no AC -= misery. They do provide fans but still… if you get hot easily, would not recommend staying here.
Older hotel but is clean and well located. I came as part of a tour and found it to be very quiet. I think most of the rooms are suites and would suitable for long stays. The restaurant was not in service but there were several located with a block or so. Neighborhood behind the Inn has lots of retirees so there is a nice grocery store and several other restaurants to choose from if you want away from the tourist section. My suite was divided into two bedrooms with a full living room suite and bed in the front part. Personally, I would have liked the front area to be just a sitting room, as it was a bit cramped. I would stay here again.
We are slowly coming out of a two-plus year Covid pandemic and it is time the hospitality sector quit complaining, raising prices or have less than stellar accommodations offered to the unsuspecting guests. Case in point: We booked this Hotel for one night prior to a hospital visit. This hotel offered a Dining room, suites and is out of the downtown area, it sounded pretty good. We just wanted a quiet time. We arrived after the 4 p.m. check-in time and asked about the Dining room. We were told they were closed, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday but open the rest of the week. Don said but this is Sunday. Her answer: oh, we closed at 2 p.m. but we will give you a coupon for dinner at a Hotel close by. It was a Hotel we would never have checked into in the first place. Never mind, we will just go up to our room. Now here is where it is weird. They have a kitchen table (old and abused) and a couple of chairs. The chairs are so low the table came up to my chest when I sat down. The cupboard supplies are more than laughable. The one good thing was an actual coffee pot where drip coffee was available. The use of coffee pods is more expensive but most Hotels now used them. Now the living room. On the south wall was a double bed, and a very large side table (from another planet). These two items took up all the space on the wall and on the north wall was the sofa facing the bed. On the one end of the sofa was the matching huge side table. On the west wall were two sofa chairs with a lamp in front of the windows. In the corner was a huge cupboard housing the t. v. inside. It could not be moved so you have to sit on the bed to watch the t. v. The bed was not made properly. The blanket (light weight nothing) that did not fit the bed and a sheet. The very unclean cover was folded up and laid across the base of the bed. I say this as the top edge was black from many months or even years being used since it had been cleaned. Into the next room - no door and no full wall between the two areas. Again a double bed, and made with the same quality as the first. The bathroom is attached to this area. The room is so small or laid out the wrong way that you could not get out to use the bathroom because it was so close to the wall. Note: I got a concussion a few years ago, with the same set up. Getting out of bed to assist my husband and I fell into the cupboard and fell face first on the cement floor. No room to walk out. You couldn't properly open the window in the living room as the screen was bent out of shape and had a gaping hole which would/could let the bugs in. I called down to speak to a Manager and I was told, we don't have Managers here. I only wanted to ask if we could change the position of the bed and sofa but, alas, no one could do anything. I will say one thing though....after 31 years marriage it was the first time we could not share the same bed (not including hospital times). Not funny! Please hire me to come and help your staff set things up, and also train the front desk staff how to treat the paying guests who enter. We operated a Bed and Breakfast for about 15 -16 years. It would take about a week. Let me know.…
On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a suite . The bedroom/sitting room was very large with 2 comfy chairs , side table and reading lamp as well as a very comfortable bed. The decor may be dated but if comfort, cleanliness and convenience is what you want, then this is a great place to stay. Although we were travelling as a couple Royal Scot is a good choice for families...with pool, hot tub, games room, billiard room and a good selection of DVDs in lieu of movie chanel on TV. It is on a quiet street,a short walk to all the sights in Victoria. A restaurant is available for breakfast and lunch. Housekeeping is on demand and staff are very accommodating. We are totally pleased with our decision to stay at this hotel.
