I stay in a lot of hotels every year (at least 25) and this place is exemplary. Genuinely friendly helpful staff who were happy to check us in early, offer us a coffee and advise that the rear parking made our top floor room more accessible. There were electric bikes for customer use, which we were happy to use and they are good quality ones that we could easily pedal downtown along the waterdside using the cycle paths provided. This is a very bike friendly city. There is a good pool table and a table football game for the guests in a very pleasant lounge. The value for money here cannot be overstated, it provides a great breakfast too. The guys at the deak could not have been more helpful, happily dropping us off in their shuttle when time permitte without fuss or cost. Ours was of a good size with a great shower and plenty of space. A comfortable bed, fridge, good wifi, TV, and a coffee makerThis place should be the blueprint for any aspiring owners of such a business as to how to run a motel, it really is head and shoulders above anything else I've experienced in this price range and puts a lot of more expensive places to shame with the quality and service provided. Well done everyone, thanks for a very memorable stay

Hotel's Favourite
Don't let the outside fool you; it might be a little outdated on appearance but...once you walk in the room, it is on a whole new level. Very nice and modern look. It's clean, roomy, has a comfy sofa and chair, all the amenities you need, and the mattress on the bed is to die for, Like sleeping on a cloud. Younger guy that checked us in was very courteous. But the award for outstanding employees are Sian and Darren who both work in the kitchen getting our continental breakfast ready in the morning. Darren is very friendly and eager to help with anything. Sian was extremely friendly and thoughtful. I asked her for recommendations on things to do. She said she would write them down for me. She did that and more. Some of her ideas never crossed our minds on thing to do, but we so glad we did as a couple of her ideas became our favorite places. Would most definitely come back and stay again and would recommend place to others to stay.here.

Rooms very clean and modern. Courteous staff and well presented Continental breakfast. Only issue is the parking. It is very crowded and designed for small vehicles. Parking is minor issue and can be overlooked for the quality of facility. Would suggest trying to be located on the back or side of complex as traffic on Gorge Road would be noisy. Good value for rate charged. Will definitely return on next trip to Victoria.

Nice and newly renovated units, complementary water bottles and slippers a plus. Typical continental breakfast. Very clean rooms but outside looks dated. Still uses physical key, can be updated to keyless. I went out and came in late and luckily found last parking slot. Visitors don’t seem to not follow the parking lanes, some are occupying two slots. Repainting the lanes may help. Excellent value, will stay again.

There are some pros and cons to this motel. Pros is the staff is pretty good with email replies, and scheduling reservations. Most of the staff is quite friendly. Our experience with the shuttle was less than ideal, it was about 40 minutes late at the airport, and never showed up downtown for one of our requests. The room was a bit rundown, but the beds were fabulous. The king room with the sofa bed had a hodgepodge feel instead of charming and the furniture was a little beat up. While the sofa bed was comfortable, the springs were very squeaky. We elected to move to another hotel after one night

When I called Robin Hood before our visit and during our stay, I received excellent service by everyone I encountered! Not only did they answer my questions, they went out of their way to provide valuable info and suggestions ... including telling me about their free shuttle service to the waterfront and custom locations. (note: must reserve ahead). The location was ideal and the rooms offer everything we needed. Breakfast options and eating/activity room were great. The manager was often present at the front desk and in the breakfast room, offering helpful tips. We didn't have time to take advantage of the free eBike and kayaks, but were impressed by that perk! Just one more thing that made Robin Hood a fantastic deal with terrific service.
