“Too Short a Stay”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

I booked Abigail's for my one night stay in Victoria due to favorable reviews. I so wish I had had more time to spend there - and I would have spent it all at Abigail's. The staff was lovely and helpful with getting me moved into my room and giving me a short tour of the property. The grounds are beautiful. There are lovely outdoor sitting areas to enjoy a glass of wine (available via the front desk for a reasonable fee). I stayed in the Sunflower room and it more than met my expectations. AC worked well and the interior design was lovely. Bathroom was absolutely spotless and towels were plentiful and lush. I utilized the spa services and was very pleased with both the service and the prices. This is a hotel with a bed and breakfast feel. Speaking of breakfast, a simple menu with several choices is set out and includes scones or muffins, fresh fruit cup, coffee, juice and a main entree choice. I had chai tea infused french toast with chicken and apple sausage and it was fantastic. Highly recommended.

We have stayed at many of the inner harbor hotels over the past 4 years since our daughter was a student at University of Victoria and this was our best experience, by far. The staff was cheerful and attentive and the accommodations were clean and luxurious. The breakfast of poached eggs, BC smoked salmon and perfectly grilled asparagus may have been the best breakfast I have ever eaten away from home and makes one dream of having a personal chef. When you add up everything including free parking and a quiet neighborhood it was very relaxing and a very good value.

First, we were able to talk to a real 'live' person while onour way to Victoria the afternoon of our first night stay. All our questions were answered on the spot. We arrived late; Kelly was waiting for us in the parking lot and quickly helped us get settled. We were a party of 3 -- parents, Grandmother and 8 mo baby. The spotless Country Garden Room was set up for us complete with play pen. All the staff were efficient and friendly with the goal of providing excellent customer service.They made you feel special and appreciated. The 3 course breakfast in the cheerful breakfast room and the appetizers each evening in the library were much enjoyed.
With only a 10 min walk to the Harbour and about the same to shopping and businesses, the location can't be beat. Abigail's is a place to come back to over and over.

Stayed in the foxglove room and it was amazing, with the lovely fireplace and a relaxing jetted bathtub. Great attention to detail and the delicious 3 course breakfast made the stay great. I'd definitely stay here next time I am in Victoria. The customer service was the best, friendly with smiles all around. The water and coffee stations were a nice touch in the library room, plus the yummy cookies upon arrival.

Just returned from a four night stay at Abigail's Hotel. It was our third stay at this hotel. We have tried several other bed and breakfasts and hotels in Victoria, but can stop our search and return each time to Abigail's. It truly is a welcoming place with hospitality that is always just the right amount. Talkative, helpful staff when you need it, quiet and respectful of your space if you don't. They do all of the little things just right so that the big things take care of themselves. Breakfasts are superb as are early evening appetizers! We will be back!

Room Tip: Have had a different room on each stay and all are well appointed and each have unique style.
