Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Bedford Regency Hotel is frequently commended for its warm staff and prime location that offers easy access to Victoria's attractions. While the hotel's vintage charm and cleanliness are highlights for many guests, opinions on value are divided due to parking fees and varying room conditions. The rooms' quaint amenities, such as wood-burning fireplaces, are appreciated, though travelers suggest that both the rooms and amenities could use some modernization.

We have been going here for over 20 years, because it is quite affordable, and the location cannot be beat. We have watched the place fo from tube TVs and sagging beds to clean facilities, flat screen TVs and comfortable beds (nice touch with the charging station bedside clock). The staff has always been excellent, helpful and friendly. Parking hasn't changed, so we were used to it (down two blocks and need the key to get in after hours). This year, they have added a cooktop to the wet bar, but had no dishes/flatware. Didn't matter because there are so many good placed to eat nearby that we wouldn't eat in the room anyhow. So unless the place burns down, we will be back next year!

Stayed here in '91 on my wedding night when it was shortly after it's remodel. It's was wonderful. We had a room with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Fast-forward thirty three years. New wife. Same room. Still a charming place and wicked locale but it's grown a bit tired. Not much seems to be being re-invested in the place but on the plus side I believe it was cheaper than it was all those years ago. It's clean. It's well run. And you can't beat the price/location ratio. Highly recommended to people who don't have a stick up their bottom.

The beds were hard - not comfortable for me, but others might like that. The parking was a bit of an issue as the parkade they are using closes at 6pm. You need to find parking on the street to be able to run into the hotel and get a key card to get into the parkade if it's after 6pm and then park (2 blocks away) in the parkade and go back to the hotel to drop off the key card - it's a bit of a pain. Also, the front desk called me while i was walking back to the hotel to return the card as I had been gone for longer than 10 minutes which i didn't much like feeling like they were rushing me. The location was great, right downtown Victoria. Unsure if i would stay there again though, there are many other hotels in the area.

Following a conference in Vancouver, I spent a few days on Vancouver Island visiting family and friends. The last night I spent at the Bedford Regency in Victoria. And I really enjoyed it. This is not a particularly fancy hotel. Rather, it is classic (as in a bit old-fashioned) but I found it particularly cozy, starting with the reception area, which has a kind of a library and nice chairs to spend time in. My room was equally cozy and quite large with nice chairs to relax in. The bathroom, again in old-fashioned style, had a large tub. From the room window, I could see Victoria harbor and the sea planes landing and taking off.. The location couldn’t be better, smack in the middle of the city, and (obviously) close to the harbor from where I took a sea plane back to the mainland the following day. I would have gladly stayed longer.

The Bedford is a fine place to stay in Victoria and my wife and I will certainly stay there again, but only of we have a room toward the back of the building and not facing Government Street. The noise from the bar across the street was terrible. The music pounded and thudded far into the night precluding sleep. Earplugs issued with the rooms would be a fine idea. Other than that, the room was sparkling clean and tidy and full of thoughtful touches and supplies. Our reception was warm and business-like and very courteous. Happy to stay here again anytime, but away from the street noise.
