The wifi is poor. The heat in room is difficult to control. Noise from upstairs was irritating. I did not know I could ask for kitchen tools, footstools I did not know about underground parking. I was there for 2 months, the housekeeping was excellent,, the pool a real treat, location was terrific, shuttle service very handy.

Hotel's Favourite
Excellent area to start each day from. Hotel was quiet, clean & had laundry facilities as well as a pool. The kichenette, ( microwave, stove, coffee maker & dishes) made a perfect addition to our vacation as it meant we didn't have to dine out each day. Staff were friendly & helpful. We disembarked from a cruise ship at Ogden Port, and walked to the hotel. (Would cab or bike cart in future)

I went to Victoria for work. The hotel was perfect to relax after the long trip and work. It is near the centre, I could to visit the city walking. The room was great! Some big and comfortable for one person. The living areas have their charm and also friendly and charming staff. If I have to come back to Victoria, I will go again to this hotel.

My husband and I stay here whenever we travel to Victoria and currently that is frequently. It is a pleasant, clean and convenient accommodation and feels like home away from home. The location is walking distance from the harbour, downtown and Beacon Hill park. There are suites with kitchens and a grocery store nearby. Staff are friendly and helpful.

I regret to share that my stay at the Royal Scot hotel was highly unsatisfactory. Numerous facilities were out of order, including room lights, whirlpool, water dispenser, and laundry appliances. Despite reporting these issues multiple times, the problems persisted, even after attempts with the hotel's technician. To make matters worse, when I brought these concerns to the front desk, particularly to Anna Strozheva, the front desk manager, her response was shockingly rude. She insisted I leave the property within an hour, creating an immensely uncomfortable situation on a Saturday night in inclement weather. Frustrated and left with no choice, I had to relocate to another hotel at double the cost. When questioning the reason for my abrupt departure, Anna Strozheva's dismissive reply was that I complained too much, causing stress to her staff. This not only reflected poor customer service but also displayed a lack of accountability for the hotel's own shortcomings. Overall, my experience at the Royal Scot hotel was marred by constant issues, unresponsive management, and a disappointing level of service. I strongly advise potential guests to reconsider staying at this establishment.

Another great stay; over the Christmas week. Played some pool, but no time to swim in the pool this visit, enjoyed the puzzle/books room, ate breakfast downstairs at Jonathan's where you never get a 'bad' meal! Relaxed atmosphere with attentive wait-person. Can never go wrong booking at Royal Scot.

Very comfortable, quiet and great service. We were in a studio which is a living room with sofa bed divided from the main bed by a low wall. The sofa bed turned out to be horrendously noisy, mechanical racket every time the occupant moved in the night and kept us awake. Next day they immediately moved us to a new and better suite. Sofa bed still creaky but less intrusive esp b/c now had an actual bedroom with a door. But a great suite---just check the sofa bed before unpacking if you're a light sleeper. I would certainly stay here again. Hotel is conveniently located, well appointed with amenities, you could probably spend a whole rainy day in their basement with pool tables, movies to borrow (could use some updating), piano, good size swimming pool, etc etc. Unfortunately despite what the website claimed, the restaurant was NOT open. This was in an area with few dining options other than other hotels most of which were absurdly expensive as they tend to be. If we had seen beforehand on the website (I always check after previous nasty surprises coming in to hotels late after dark in strange areas) that the restaurant was closed, as we had a good kitchen in the suite we could have made sure to import groceries to cook. A minor point---stayed at James Bay Inn the week before and they provide salt, pepper and cooking oil and paper towels in their kitchens. Nice not to have to buy and leave behind.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking time and sharing your experience with us. I am glad to hear that we were able to rectify your problem with the sofa noise after the first night. We take pride in our hospitality and going above and beyond to assist all our guests as best as we can. As Jonathan's Restaurant is separately owned, our official website does not provide information on the hours of operations, therefore we always suggest calling the hotel to confirm the details. Luckily, we are located within walking distance to a vast variety of restaurants and cafes to have a proper dinner or a late night bite. Thank you again for your kind words about our service. We are happy that you enjoyed your suite and well appointed amenities, especially the games room. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind Regards, Anna Storozheva Front Office Manager

This hotel was a bit of a throw back. But in a pleasant way. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The decor is a little dated, but the property is well maintained. There is no ac (just fans), but even in July the room cooled with evening breeze through open wwindows. The location is excellent and we were able to easily walk to key sites after arriving on the Coho ferry.
