HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

This is a very well-located Best Western in the town of Sidney On The Sea. Sidney is a very lovely town with much to do in it, with a relatively short drive down into Victoria. The Victoria International Airport is nearby as well. There are many beaches in the area, and a lot of hiking and camping possibilities. The Best...

Excellent, central location only a few minutes from the ferry and the airport. Close to Victoria and the Trans Canada Highway. Lovely small town feel with an awesome waterfront. Will definitely recommend to others and we will stay here again.

We were flying out of Victoria and came a day early because it was supposed to snow over night and we didn't want to face the Malahat in the snow. Glad we did. Very pleasant hotel. Staff was prompt, friendly and helpful. We had the one bedroom suite on the ground floor. Marvelous. The room is spacious and comfortable and...

I've stayed at the pavilion section of the hotel several times now. It's comfortable, always clean, large room, and quiet. In addition, they have the fitness room there and guest laundry...both are nice when on shift.

Our ten day stay was a treat. Location allowed us easy access to Victoria and Parksville. The mini suite made entertaining friends enjoyable and was perfect as a "rainy day" hideout.
