Liked this place, but so far in Victoria due to location, quiet room and comfortable bed. Good bar and a Library. A bit anachronistic - there is a dress code - no jeans - and I like that. Very helpful staff. Breakfast was mildly disappointing, just like all breakfasts I have ever had in Canada - so similar. I had... More

The Union Club of British Columbia is an interesting mix of the old British Empire and the Freemasons. Strict operating procedures have been relaxed to permit us outsiders to stay here and experience the facilities, so coming from a military family background I did not bother about strict rules and regulations. The staff are helpful, skilful, and attentive. The basic... More

I really enjoyed doing lunch with my fellow university student members of a political party club and the currently serving politicians. The classic interior decor and the company of the "high and mighty" in politics makes the entire buffet lunch feel like a high up summit of business, political, educational, and NGO movers and shakers. It would feel like a... More

The historic Union Club building in the heart of historic Victoria is a unique find. This was our first experience with a reciprocal club, and it was a very good experience.
