Hotel's Favourite
We live in Victoria but my husband and I decided to spend the night at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel as a staycation during the long weekend. From the moment we stepped out of the car everything was excellent. We were greeted by three doormen before we even walked into the building! Everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly, professional, and accommodating! The heated mineral pool was fantastic and the hot tubs were so relaxing! You're right on the ocean so you get to experience the stunning views right from inside the pools! The staff are very conscientious of covid protocols and we felt safe and cared for the entire time. The food and drink were delicious and the rooms were comfortable and clean. We even splurged and had treatments at the spa and they were absolutely fantastic! We would highly recommend the Oak Bay Beach Hotel and we can't wait to be able to plan our next staycation there!

Awesome location and staff. Generally large rooms as it’s an old hotel that has been renovated. Kids aren’t allowed at the pool…that’s right. A hotel pool that doesn’t allowed children. If you have a toddler, you are shown to a small offshoot dining room too. Nothing wrong with it really except they love to rent it out to medium sized groups in town for a wedding etc. …that means unless you leave the property, you’re probably eating in your hotel room. Not cheap so you’re not getting the value if you have a little traveller with you. If you don’t, you’d love it.

We love this hotel, spacious rooms, great views, friendly staff and the beautiful pool of course!! Oak Bay is so quiet and it is refreshing to be away from the busy downtown area. The Snug Pub food is something we look forward to every time we come back to Victoria. Faro pizza also incredible. Looking forward to our next visit!

The beds are incredibly comfortable, the best rain shower head and the quiet Oak Bay location is great for relaxing. The staff are very polite and the views are great. Still.....food prices in the Snug Pub are obscene. Which is a shame as the view is wonderful. Aside from the Snug Pub prices the only other complaint that I have is the late check in time...4:00. Very inconvenient.

Dear Vacationer307880, Thank you for taking the time to share your review of your stay at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel. It is valuable feedback, such as yours, that allows us to continually improve the guest experience. While we were very happy that you thoroughly enjoyed your suite and found our team members to be courteous, we were saddened to learn that some aspects of your stay did not leave you with the same impressions. Please accept our sincere apologies if the guaranteed check-in time of 4:00pm took away from your arrival experience. We are delighted to extend a late 12-noon check-out for all of our valued guests on day of departure. An iconic institution in Victoria, The Snug Pub is proud to offer seasonally inspired menus serving fresh, sustainable, local ingredients in an unparalleled setting. We appreciate your comments and have shared them with our culinary team. Despite these two aspects of your stay, we truly hope you took away some wonderful memories of your time at the OBBH and hope we have the opportunity to be of service again. Warm regards, Kate Smithbower Guest Relations
