“Great location for Victoria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2012

We were here for a couple of nights towards the end of our trip to Canada and this certainly is one of the better Hotels we have stayed at.
The Hotel is in a great spot - we preferred it as it was a little way out of the centre of town, but still easily within walking distance. We liked the fact we were on the harbourside, near Fisherman's Wharf and next to a stop for one of the little water taxis.
The room itself is not massive, but clean and fully equipped with everything you need to ensure your stay is more than comfortable. The bathroom is really good.
We didn't eat in The Blue Crab, as it looked pretty costly, but did have a bar meal, which was really tasty and good value. The view from the bar area overlooking the harbour was great too.
As another reviewer has said, the fact that the Hotel has a shuttle that will take you into town whenever you want is also a really great idea.
The thing that narks me is that you get charged for parking your car - not the most expensive we had in Canada, but I still begrudge paying it.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms do not have great views at all - if you want a view of the Harbour, best to ask fo...

Have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 10 years for business and pleasure.  Like my experience with all Coast hotels, they are very reliable with value for the money, great friendly and attentive service, and great catering and meeting rooms too.  The Harbourside just re-opened after being completely closed for several months for building remediation work.  It's maintained very well and the harbour views are beautiful.  It's a 10 minute walk into downtown, so if you don't mind that you will be rewarded with a quiet and relaxing location and wonderful views.

Room Tip: Try to get a harbour view room overlooking the inner harbour. Even if you have to pay for the upgra...

We have been coming to the Coast for years and this year was the biggest disappointment of all. I have never had an issue paying the rate at this hotel but this time was not worth it and I had to remind them of the 3 night package deal they were offering. This hotel is in desperate need of repair and the service has fallen so far below par. I was not expecting shiny and new but at the very least I think a good steam clean of the carpets would not be too much to ask for. The bathroom we had was so dingy that I asked for it to be cleaned because I thought it was not done yet. The additional cleaning was no help. The Blue Crab lounge was always a great place for a cocktail and now they did not even have one type Port on the shelf. What lounge does not have a cheap Port sitting on the shelf? I am sad to have to write this review because of my previous love for this location and what it used to be.

Room Tip: Every room on the 4th floor was old and dingy and it is very loud so expect to hear all aspects othe...

The hotel is located next to Fishermans Warf, and just 10 minutes walk from the tourist area along a harbour-side path. Great room overlooking the bay. Clean, tidy, comfortable and spacious. Nice breakfast room.

My husband, 2 teenagers, and I stayed here for 4 nights during our trip to Victoria. Have been to Victoria 3 others times & found this hotel to be the best one that we have stayed in, by far!! Clean, comfortable, large rooms, friendly & helpful staff, and couldn't ask for a better location!! It was just a 5 minute walk to waterfront, Parliment Buildings, etc on a nice/safe pathway by the harbor. The pool/hottub were a nice appreciated bonus. We have stayed in other hotels in Victoria that offer pools that were outside so never able to use them since the weather isn't really hot enough. We hit a sale rate so the rooms were very affordable but I have since looked & the prices are more expensive. Still I wouldn't hesitate to stay here because of the hotel condition, location, staff, and secure (inexpensive) parking. Close enough to walk anywhere downtown and can bypass the parking fees they charge for downtown attractions.

Room Tip: At check in ask if any view rooms available. They upgraded us for free & watching the sea plane...
