My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary in Victoria, and we selected our hotel based only on TripAdvisor reviews. Abigail's has so many "over the top" reviews, and we quickly discovered that they live up to them all.

It truly is as wonderful and perfect as people say -- the friendly and helpful staff, the comfortable rooms, the wonderful breakfasts and evening hors d'oeuvres, the sparkling cleanliness, the cozy ambiance. All those superlatives used by other reviewers, they are all for real.

Our expectations were exceeded at every turn. I've stayed in hundreds of hotels over the last 40+ years, and I can honestly say our experience at Abigail's tops them all. We've added Victoria to our list of cities to revisit frequently (easy from our Seattle home), and we will always stay at Abigail's.

Room Tip: We were in 2D, at the top of the stairs. A fine and comfortable room, but no city view (but we didn...

We recently spent 3 nights at Abigails Hotel in Victoria. The staff at Abigails is fabulous. They made us feel welcome from the start and did everything they could to make us feel at home. Fireplaces, beautiful linens, great breakfasts plus many wonderful little touches that make you feel like you have really had a treat! This is a romantic place. We loved having a glass of wine and reading in the library. You're not on the harbor if you stay here but it really has a lovely ambience. It is easy to drive in Victoria. Staff gave us great recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing. Only recommendation is - no elevator here - if stairs bother you ask for a room on street level. Don't hesitate to stay here...you will create special memories :)

Room Tip: Good pictures of different rooms on hotel website

We had read the reviews and based on them booked 4 nights (Nov 8-12). This is a place of respite. We had a King bedroom top of the stairs on the 2nd floor. Pleasing decor, and super clean. White towels changed daily. The tub with its rain drop shower head does require the mobility to swing leg up and in. The bed is higher and the topper is super soft so getting into bed with some arthritic limits was a bit of a challenge to shuffle in but wow what comfort on this cloud, under feather duvet and crisp linens... heavenly sleep. Climbing all the stairs, back entry, and then to the room floors could be a challenge that needs to be assessed if you have mobility issues but the staff gladly carried our suitcase. There was slight sound carry of someone walking above, distant bathroom sounds, but no late night disturbances allowing for restful sleep. There is staff on duty at all times. The library was lovely to sit in and sip some wine, or drink some coffee, read the paper. Staff light the fireplace. There is a selection of DVDs to take to your room. The breakfast offered is lovely baking and savory dish choices served in a bright room. We even were given a breakfast to go on our early airport day. The evening food offerings goes beyond what we would have expected. Staff was totally hospitality oriented. The location of Abigail's perfect for walking the sights... this is just an absolutely lovely place of respite and I hope to return since Victoria itself needs more exploring.

We had a couple of nights here last weekend and we can attest to the fact that this is a great place to stay and the customer service is excellent! The food is also very delicious, the appetizer hour is a wonderful touch, and our room was lovely. You can't go wrong here!

My wife and I stayed at Abigail's for the weekend when we were getting married. The staff are all super friendly and helpful!
The room we had was fantastic, we've never slept so soundly in our lives. The chairs were also very comfortable, as myself and my best man spent a few hours sitting in the room playing cards, waiting for my bride's family to arrive.
We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We would ask for a room away from the stairs the next time we stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Abigail's Hotel is a unique accommodation experience that blurs the lines between a small luxury hotel and a heritage bed-and-breakfast Inn. Abigail's is an adult-only, intimate 23-room property that is housed in a 1930's Tudor mansion. Its special atmosphere blends the romance and charm of the past with the comfort and convenience of modern accommodation. Located in romantic Victoria, British Columbia, Abigail's is quietly situated on the edge of the bustling downtown core and is three short blocks from Victoria's Inner Harbour, within walking distance of all the major downtown attractions and restaurants. Life is too short to be conventional, discover a splendour and charm that has been lost to the ages and uniquely exists at Abigail's. ... more   less
