Excellent value, clean, quiet, and with the all the amenities of home. Lovely subdued décor with a modern touch, and comfortable furniture add to a lovely relaxing place to escape to after a business meeting, or long day shopping. Located on a side street just off the bustle of the main downtown area, so you can walk anywhere but have...

This is the 3rd time I've stayed at the Oswego. It's been a fantastic stay every time. We opted for the one bedroom unit. The rooms are gorgeous and large - including a full size kitchen (like, full size stove, full size fridge...). It was nice - one of us could get an early night sleep and close the bedroom...

Nice boutique hotel with restaurant on-site. Wonderful room with kitchenette stocked with pots and pans and dishes and utensils. Great coffee in the room, unlike some hotels with very poor quality coffee. Apples were provided in the room and lobby but they were of the tart variety. Great location, within walking distance of the ferry dock. The room was quiet...

The Oswego hotel was the perfect choice for us. We were unfamiliar with Victoria, but on our last night we were able to walk from the hotel to downtown and back. It took some time, but there is so much to see on the way. For the price and the location, the Oswego was fantastic. The hotel itself was beautiful,...

From the moment I walked in, until the moment I left, this hotel was first class all the way! The food, drinks, and service in the restaurant was one of the best in Victoria! I love the location, it's away from the hustle bustle but close enough to walk into downtown, if you want too. I went for walks into...

We stayed as a couple for one night in a studio sized unit. It comes equipped with a small kitchen and cooking equipment, although we only made coffee. Nicely decorated hotel and unit and very comfortable and quiet. Parking is underground and costs CDN$15.00/night. Location is only about two blocks from the harbour and close to a number of restaurants....

Great location - close to downtown and an easy walk to Dallas Road (gorgeous seawall walk). I stayed in a studio suite and I was pleasantly surprised at how spacious it was. Well appointed room. Everything you need and more. Lovely hotel with friendly staff. I'm already looking forward to my next stay.

We enjoyed our stay at the Oswego. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms and very comfortable and the kitchen/kitchenettes are well appointed.

Beautiful hotel, nicely appointed- we were there during a huge windstorm so it was incredible noisy. We were also there for a Christmas party, and found the staff to be tolerant of those a little more in the party mode. All the rooms we saw were nice, and the rates reasonable. Staff was very friendly. I would certainly stay here...

Great boutique hotel at James Bay. Great staff, sufficient amenities. Not a 5-star hotel for sure, but the staff make it a point to make you feel at home. And the Oswego Hotel has enough amenities that will make you come back to it if you're back in Victoria.
