Overall the experience was good, staff was courteous and helpful, however the food was average. The rooms were good, neat and spacious, the beds were clean and well-made, bathrooms were well-maintained, and the check in and check out very smooth and quick. Recommended for short stays.

Stayed at the hotel with our two daughters in July 2015. Immaculate 1-bedroom suite. Well priced. Great little kitchen with everything you need. Everything is perfectly clean including the communal areas. We are going back in August 2016. Simply outstanding!

The hotel was centrally located, close to all amenities. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the jazz evening. This provided an enjoyable atmosphere. Our room had a well equipped kitchen with a number of small appliances.

An unexpected delight with more amenities than one can reasonably expect from a hotel room. Everything was clean and fresh with many little luxury details like bathrobes. Location was great and parking easy if you chose the underground pay parking option. We will definitely be back.

We stayed for a week and couldn't ask for better service. We had a one bedroom suite and the kitchenette was fully operational to cook a meal or just a sandwich .We visit Victoria every year and will definitely be back.
