We stayed one night for our anniversary, and had a great experience. Amazing view, awesome room, clean and comfortable, lovely tub and fireplace, and delicious food at the restaurant. We had great service from top to bottom, from the staff commenting on how they loved babies (ours did not stay the night, just made a debut), to the table delivery...

We got to the place after hearing great reviews and upon arrival there was no one near the place to let us in and no one answered the phone, so we had to go into the restaurant and find a waitress to let us in. After finally being let in, on the surface it looked OK but on further inspection...

We take our reviews very seriously and work hard to improve on all valid points raised. I must say, there is absolutely NO TRUTH to this review. Checking in is a very simple process, if the front desk is closed. All Managers in the restaurant are well trained at the check-in process and, yes, it is a short, 60-second stroll...

Very nice room with a stellar view. The very large bathtub situated so you can relax and enjoy the sights with privacy. The Chalet next door also has a killer view from the fully glassed in dining area. The food was fabulous! Highly recommend.

This hotel is in a beautiful area. The views from the soaker tub, in the corner of the room, out the huge corner windows are amazing. The front desk staff could tell guests that the view from the restaurant above the hotel can see directly into the rooms so beware to close the blinds. The carpets were absolutely filthy. I...

The view was amazing, rooms were all clean and fresh (only the carpet was dirty... but u are not looking at the carpet when u are there :D). Bathtub next to the window with that view is a wonderful idea. If u are on vancouver islands YOU NEED TO STAY HERE.

Myself and my partner visited Victoria for the first time last October (2015). The only thing we wanted to do was go Whale watching and left everything else to the last minute. We stumbled across the Moon Water Lodge ... just wow!! 5* rating doesn't do it justice. As their website back then was a little hard to get to...

We were very excited to stay here due to the pictures of the scenery from the room. The scenery was not disappointing. It was breathtaking. We arrived at 9pm there was no one at the office and a note saying go to the restaurant to check in. No biggy. When we got to the room we were very disappointed in...

I had to go over to the island for a wedding, and as such decided to treat myself to a hotel stay the night after. I looked at a few surrounding the area and decided this one looked the best. And I loved it! Each room has it's own door on the outside (the side facing away from the water)...

This by far has been the best hotel on the Girls Road Trip. Located 30 minutes outside Victoria on Route 1, this place had the most spectacular view that we got up all 3 mornings to watch the sunrise . Yes you could hear some road noise if you listened for it, but we slept with our window and screen...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
NEW OWNERS APRIL 2014! We are a west-coast style, boutique hotel, located near the top of the historic, Malahat Drive on Vancouver Island. Overlooking the Saanich Inlet, you will be taken a world away from the routine of day to day life. Beautiful British Columbia encapsulated; mountains, ocean, birds, orcas, trees, all right outside your window. Drink in the sunrise along with your morning coffee; then settle in for the evening and watch, as the moon rises in the night sky and its reflection is mirrored by the calm waters below. Each room boasts a large, two person soaker tub, with nothing between you and the great outdoors except a large, picture window! Turn on the gas fireplace, pour yourself a drink and take some time to relax, rejuvenate and restore! ... more   less
