This was an incredible find. Located in Oak Bay, about 20 minutes from the heart of Victoria (at least the tourist heart, as far as we could tell -- where the Empress Hotel, Parliament, and the BC Museum are located) this place was luxury from top to bottom. The happiness started with the free parking (after shelling out $42 a...

We stayed in Victoria at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel during the first week of August 2016. The staff were attentive, professional and accommodating. The property grounds were beautiful, including the relaxing mineral pools. Our room was warm and inviting, beds were very comfortable and we loved the sunken tub and fire place. Hotel views were also spectacular, as was...

This is a wonderful hotel, some kilometers far from Victoria downtown. The hotel is really nice, rooms are big, clean, and well equipped, with a wonderful view. It is the best place to spend some relaxing moments. Also the terrace out of the pub in the hotel offers a lovely view on the bay. People working there are really kind...

We can't wait to come back. The King room (296) was in the perfect location of this beautiful hotel, nestled right in the corner. It has a nice little patio area that can seat 4 people and offers great privacy compared to the other ground level pet friendly suites. The food, the hot tubs and pool were so nice, Kate...

Let me start off by being clear that the 2 points I have rated the hotel is not what I would expect most visitors would feel fair and one that on 99 times out of 100 I would not give the hotel myself. But I must review the hotel on our stay and as such I struggled to decide between...

This is labelled as the Dinner Theatre but this is strictly about the Hotel which was stellar! From the Hotel suite - fantastic - to the heated pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean to the amenities and staff who give top notch service. Anything asked was provided or an alternative suggested which worked!

We arrived in Victoria harbor via the M/V Coho car ferry and immediately were impressed and excited about our visit to Vancouver Island. But when we started to drive away from the busy tourist attraction area found in downtown Victoria we were concerned that perhaps our hotel choice, the Oak Bay Beach Hotel, was a bad choice that put us...

My wife, 7 month old baby and I stayed here in July. It is a lovely hotel in a beautiful part of Vancouver Island, however, some aspects of the service really let this hotel down: (1) We had to wait over an hour for our bags to be brought up to our room. Not ideal when you have a baby...

Our stay was short, but we loved it none the less. The fact it is away from the busy downtown area of Victoria is enough, however everything about our stay was first class.

Good, but not inexpensive hotel. Great location (sea view) some 4 km's from the center. Swimming pool with views of sea is the winner, together with luxuoury rooms. Some detail criticism: had to wait for our room (not ready at 16:00, and could not enter the pub-restaurant with our minor daughter. Got a seat at the interior of the hotel....
