I stayed in this rather quirky hotel for 6 nights while I attended a course. The service and amenities were entirely good enough for me on this trip, and staying here helped me keep my costs down. Room was clean, wireless access mainly good, free breakfast was adequate. If you are looking for luxury this hotel will not be for...

We needed a single night near the ferries, and this fit the bill without the high cost of downtown accommodations. We had a humungous room where we could even fit our bicycles without their getting in the way. We had a queen bed that was comfortable, although the room could have easily fit a king bed. The decor is old-world...

The hotel is mock Tudor but with recent updates. Rooms clean and comfortable and continental breakfast more than adequate. Reception staff not exactly the norm and would benefit from a course in friendliness and customer service. Would stay there again as so convenient for the airport.

Well, what can I say...the staff was not very pleasant to talk to...staff was eating in front of guests... they could have cleaned the place better. If the have an issue with guests taking John 5th out for a walk They should let John stay in the back so people can't see him.. pretty flowers..

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. The fenced area that you are referring to is not open to the public. It is an area reserved for our resident basset John. While we clean this area regularly, we clearly had not done a thorough job the day you visited. I sincerely apologize for that and I will insure that...

To say something positive, we appreciated being able to bring Our small dog. We needed a motel near Victoria as we were Visiting family.

It's hard to find dog friendly hotels at reasonable rates on the Island, so when we found this hotel on line, we were so glad. Even during the highest season, we think the rate is good. It's close to the highway and they have a restaurant and liquor store in the property which is very convenient. It's very close to...

Very dated, strong aged/musty odour immediately evident on entering and throughout. Staff appeared indifferent. Regrettably we cannot recommend this hotel. Visited July 23, 2016. Price point ok for one night stay, location convenient to Butchart Gardens, breakfast was ok.
