Reviewed 17 April 2012

This was our 2nd stay at the Inn At Laurel Point and the outcome was notably better than our first trip. As before, the location is excellent. However, this time we were given a better room in a newer part of the hotel. The view was nicer, with the delightful expanse of the harbour clearly visible. Really nice.

The king sized bed was just fine as was the shower, which, like before, was strong, hot and delightful. Not to be picky, but the water flow of the taps in the sinks was quite the opposite. Really flimsy and weak. Odd, that is.

we did not use the restaurant but did use the fitness room, which is small, lightly equipped but usable. One thing to keep in mind is that the sliding glass door in the fitness room will open to the harbour's fresh air. Just remember to close it and lock it!

we got a great price on Hotwire and the hotel upgraded us for free, as we had stayed there before. Quite nice.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the new part of the hotel, with a clear view of the harbour

Dear xj6response,

Thank you so much for your heartfelt review of our Inn. Now, having stayed in both wings of our hotel, you can appreciate that we have a room and a view to suit almost every budget and taste and I am so pleased that you enjoyed the more upscale Erickson Wing Suite.

Like any building, the vantage points vary from room to room and floor to floor but even our more modest rooms have some view of either the inner or outer harbour and are well appointed for the budget minded traveller.

I do hope we will see you back for a third visit some time in the near future.

Thanks again.


Sincerely,

Judy Elder

This is the fifth time I have stayed at the Laurel Point inn in 10 years, and it remains one of my all time favourite hotels. A great place to unwind, extremely tasteful rooms, friendly and considerate service, plenty of great walks right outside the door, and easy access to downtown Victoria.
Looking forward to return visits in the future. Get one of the larger rooms in the Ericson wing for a special treat and enjoy the views from the balcony

Dear dmpWaterloo,

So glad you enjoyed our little piece of paradise as much as we do.How many cities do you know of where a hotel can be perched on the edge of a peninnsula, surrounded by the ocean yet within walking distance of a vibrant downtown area? We are truly blessed to have THE very best hotel location in the city of Victoria, don't you think?

May I suggest that you join our "INN-SIDERS" loyalty program. It's free and as a more frequent guest, you become eligible for some great little perks.

Thanks again for posting your comments.

Sincerely,

Judy Elder

I have stayed here several times and am always pleased to return. Beautiful location on the inner harbor and the walking path to downtown is accessible right next to the hotel.It is very easy to walk from the hotel to anywhere in downtown Victoria. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. Got a great room price on the internet.

Room Tip: If you need a room safe, be sure to ask for a room with one. Most rooms have them, but not all, the...

Dear PNM2011,

Thank you for taking the time to write your wonderful review.
And you are so right, some of our staff have timed the walking distance to the downtown shopping area and it is virtually 7-10 minutes walk around the harbour - so close and such a beautiful walk!
You will be happy to know that, we did indeed have about 5 safes that were out of order and in need of either repair or replacement,but we have now placed our order for new ones and are awaiting their arrival, so all rooms wil indeed have safes.

Do come back as see us again and thank you for your kind remarks!

Sincerely,

Judy Elder

This was my second time in staying at the Inn at Laurel Point and I was as pleased the second time as I was on the first. Staff, quality, amenities, location all together make it a 5-star experience.

Room Tip: Every room has a water view so you can't lose. The Erickson wing is my preference.

Dear CdnTrvlr2012,

Thanks for taking the time to write your review of your recent stay with us. I am so glad that you enjoyed your brief stay with us.
Yes, being situated on a peninnsula surrounded by the ocean on 3 sides certainly makes for some spectacular views from our rooms, whether it be of the inner harbour or our outer harbour, sunrise or sunset - it's always breathtaking!
Do come back and stay with us again on your next adventure to Victoria.

Judy Elder

Dear Nanan220,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about our Inn.
I am so pleased that you enjoyed your brief stay with us.
Although 95% of our rooms have a view of the ocean, both inner harbour and outer harbour, some rooms do have more breathtaking views than others. It would depend on the floor that you are situated on - the higher the floor-the more panoramic the view.
But, having said that, even our ground floor level garden suites have spectacular views of our Japanese Zen gardens and reflecting pool and waterfalls, which are of course, next to the ocean.
So, you see, there is definitely something for everyone and every budget.

We hope you come back and visit on your next sojourn to Victoria.

Sincerely,


Judy Elder
