This is a nice hotel with lots of great details in the room. Service is impeccable. Nothing to complain about. The highlight of the stay was the outdoor heated pools. 3 pools with different temperatures, ranging from warm to hot. Kids loved them. The change room is with the fitness and spa room. Free drinks and snacks were nice. Lots...

I chose this hotel because of the hot tubs by the sea, and they were actually wonderful! So cool to be on a jaccuzzi watching the ocean! But everything about the hotel was great: big rooms, nicely decorated, perfect bathtub separated from the shower, bathrobes for everyone including the kids, small kitchen in the room, free parking and free wi-fi!...

We decided to spend New Years in beautiful Victoria, B.C. and chose the Oak Bay Beach Hotel. We were extremely satisfied with our stay. The property is gorgeous, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and our room was quite spacious with excellent amenities, including a kitchenette. The location is excellent, albeit not exactly downtown. This is more than compensated...

We went for a girls' weekend and the staff were wonderful, the views were magnificent, and we really enjoyed the pool. The rooms were comfortable and there were a few nice options on site for dining. We really only had one negative experience when a few members of our party clarified that there was alcohol in their drinks because they...

We love this location. The oceanfront rooms are great with outstanding views of the Strait. The OB is showing some signs of wear and tear - i.e. door to carpark doesn't close, scratches and dents in the baseboards, peeling wallpaper in the men's Spa change room. However, overall, it is still a great location to stay at. Staff is great...

The hotel and location is nice, well it seems a little tired and dated. We originally choose to stay here to take advantage of the mineral pools and unfortunately we were disappointed for two reasons. One was the weather which was packed with heavy winds and pounding rain, it was so cold and nasty. The other reason was the fact...

They had all the fixings and their customer service surpasses what we have experienced at the Empress Hotel. Christmas was set up beautifully and felt like home. We enjoyed the Christmas Eve dinner and the New Years Day dinner in the dining room. Room service was very good and ample bottled water was provided. We also enjoyed the use of...

The heated floors in the bathroom were a real treat! Friendly staff and great food.This is a luxury hotel but still reasonably priced with a comfortable feel. The pool and hot tubs were lovely to soak in while looking up at the night sky. Looking forward to my next stay.
