From the minute we walked in, we knew we would like this hotel. We got onto our room early and loved the view of the harbor. The Oswego is modern -- only seven years old -- and located about two blocks from the ferry station. Our room had a kitchenette but we didn't use it very much. Too many dining...

We arrived in Victoria as walk-on ferry passengers. The Oswego is easy walking distance from the ferry terminal and is a great location to walk to many areas of interest in Victoria. My wife likes the modern styling of the hotel. We found it to be very clean and comfortable. The kitchenette was well equipped. Staff was friendly and food...

The Oswego Hotel is an exceptional small hotel that offers services typically found in hotels priced 3x the price. Well trained staff, clean, quiet property, well located near the downtown area of Victoria, B.C.

Only two blocks from the Victoria Clipper. Modern and clean, would definitely stay here again. Bistro was good and service as great. Walking distance to all that Victoria has to offer. Would highly recommend to anyone that comes on the Clipper and doesn't have a car. Easy to take a taxi anywhere too.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your stay at the Oswego. Like many of our guests, the location off the Clipper or Black Ball ferry line is fabulous and also being a short walk to all the local attractions. We look forward to welcoming you back to stay with us again soon.

The whole experience was great. Easy check in, stored our stuff while we waited for check in time at 3pm, and the place was clean and great. Though the restaurant was booked for another event, we didn't need it. Close to the Coho dock that we could walk.

Stayed for 3 nights in a large and comfortable bachelor suite with a fully equipped kitchen. Queen bed was very comfortable and came with good pillows ( no rubber rocks here). Suite was clean, modern and quiet, overlooking a central garden courtyard. Staff were courteous and friendly and a quick inquiry as to whether I needed anything came with a...

We loved this hotel. Small enough for individualized service, large enough to feel comfortable not being the center of attention. We were a family of four and a dog - the hotel put chocolates and a welcome note in our room, and had a dog bed with a "doggy welcome kit" waiting, too. Beautiful rooms, great location just two blocks...
