We just spent two nights at the Oak Bay. We had been there once before and loved it so decided to stay again on our trip to VIctoria. We have stayed at a lot of really nice hotels around the world but the Oak Bay is without a doubt one of my favorites. The hotel is full of English charm.... More

Ocean view suite was spacious, had a fireplace, fridge and microwave. ad a jacuzzi tub and was very quite. close to the elevater and large screen TV. There was a storm warning so they supplied flashlights and lanterns just in case the power went out. It did not.

I stayed here last weekend for a girls getaway and it was a perfect choice. The rooms are luxurious, beds are comfy and the bathroom is spa quality. The Snug is a great place for food and/or drinks, and Kate's is perfect for breakfast. The 2 stars of the show though are the pools and the service. I felt like... More

We were there for a wedding. Everything went smoothly. The rooms were great. The restaurant was very good . The pool and spa was fantastic. Check in and check out went smoothly. They had difficulty arranging a wheelchair for my elderly mother, so after several requests , we found a way to do it ourselves.

This hotel has a stunning location and great potential, but it seems to have run out of puff. Our stay was comfortable, but there were disquieting signs. The restaurant, for example, was poor but expensive. It took an age for the one-man staff to bring the mediocre food -the whole dinner took 2.5 hours. Unacceptable. The whole place was devoid...

Awesome vacation location; ocean view, spa, heated outside pool, great service and pub food and accommodating staff. The "Only" negative.....request for wake up call for transport to the airport did not happen. Worked out... but caused a bit of a panic!

The Oak Bay Beach Hotel was a beautiful shoreline resort on the west side of Victoria B.C. As soon as we arrived from Seattle on the Victoria Clipper, we had car service to escort us to the hotel.

I've stayed at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel several times and each time when I walk into the room I am wowed by the view and the warmth of the room.
