The hotel is dated but since I was in for surgery at Saanich peninsula hospital, modern was not a concern. The hotel is very clean and the staff extremely accommodating and friendly. Location for my purpose was excellent. Never had the breakfast but the library was a relaxing place to be.

I love this place. I stayed here for a month with 2 Golden Retrievers while getting cataract surgery in Victoria, and I've come back for a week now with 1 Golden-- Bed comfy, comfy chair, desk, free wifi, flat screen, lots of cupboard and closet space. The free breakfast is amazing: set in lovely 'library' room as scrambled eggs, sausages,...

This hotel was a flashback to 1978 with the décor and all, including the rooms. I did not take off my shoes or wore flip flops my entire time in hotel. Thank goodness I was there for only one night. Only reason we stayed there as with everything was sold out in town and we actually got an earlier flight...

Dear Guests, we apologize for any discomfort you had! We are a fido friendly hotel, the percentage of our lovely guests that travel with their "best friend", is quite high and the majority of hotels now do allow pets. For future travels, I would suggest that you check with the hotel to see if it is pet friendly, and before...

This place has a really great atmosphere and historic "old inn" feel. My wife and I would have had a really great stay; however, they really screwed up with a crib for our infant. We had requested it in advance and confirmed after we checked in. I guess there is one crib between 2 hotels so they had to retrieve...

I was a little surprised by the place, but it's charm finally got to me. Coming from the Mill Bay ferry we went through beautiful countryside and arrived at the Inn. The mix of Tudor style architecture with modern amenities in the rooms was interesting and the place itself was clean and well appointed. Old pictures of the English Hunt...

We stay frequently at the mock-Tudor place. Always clean, staff helpful and polite. The interior is a bit dated, but that gives it the Pickwickian air, so do the prints of fox-hunting scenes and of Victorian times. The pub is close and serves decent and plenty of food, locals dominate the scene and strengthen authenticity. The location suits us well,...

Just looking for a cheap place to stay while visiting the Island for a wedding and got a flight & hotel deal on Expedia. Not sure if I would stay here again. Rooms are old but clean. The breakfast was good but the same every day. Really enjoyed the pub and the fish and chips were great.

This was one of those stays you wonder if it's just a bad day. Let's first talk about the exterior. You'd think you are somewhere in Austria or the Alsace in France. I had a 1st good impression. That impression continued in the lobby. I love that old Austrian look it had. Warm welcome, easy check in. Once in the...

We stayed at this place two separate times in a week. The first night was fine other than the cable tv was frozen. To be fair we didn't ask the desk to fix it. Breakfast was fine - nothing too special. The second time we stayed here was no where near as nice. When our keys didn't work we asked...

I wanted to stay at the Waddling Dog since reading the name. TA reviews were pretty good so we stayed for a couple of nights. The facility is older, but trying for charm. The breakfast room is in a room that looks like a library or drawing room. Actually breakfast was the only disappointment for the stay. Both days, there...
