To be frank, i didn't have much expectation when i first saw this hotel, which appeared a motel to me consisting of 3 low layer plain building.
However, after i checked in, everything is beyond my expectation and surprisingly good.
excellent location: that's main reason we picked this as 2nd night in Victoria after Fairmont. It's just 2 min walk from Fairmont, 1min from Pacific coach station, BC Museum. What's more, Beacon Hill Park is just next to the hotel across the street.
Large suite fully fitted and newly decorated: It's true suite including a bedroom, a living room (quite spacious with sofa and TV), kitchen (it's large fully equipped again but pitty we don't have time to use it), bathroom, large closet. It'll be perfect if you need to stay Victoria for a few days and like to experience local ppl living.
Reception with free fresh apples, free coffee, free newspaper/magazine, and free advice from the staff which helped us a lot.
Wifi is free and stable too. They got free computer at reception for guests use as well
Price: all-in CAD100 sounds good deal to me. Actually, room and facility are much new and better than Fairmont:)
Con: really can't think of much. Maybe just no free breakfast?:)
