My husband and I took the Clipper from Seattle to Victoria. Being car-free for our visit, we booked a room at the Oswego because it was near the dock and looked like a interesting boutique hotel. We arrived at about 11 am off the boat and Caroline at the front desk was really helpful--letting us know where nearby restaurants were...

Thank you for staying with us. Yes our location is loved by many guests. Being in the James bay neighborhood just off the inner harbour but, a short walk to all the attractions and ferries give us an advantage for guests wanting more of a relaxing stay.

This hotel was perfect. A five minute walk to Inner Harbour makes this accommodation extremely desirable. The one bedroom suite has a beautiful fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable spacious sitting area with a balcony. The staff were accommodating and extremely friendly. This is my new favourite hotel in Victoria.

Having booked online (for a very quick visit with family) and being unfamiliar with this hotel, I didn't know exactly what to expect.

Great Boutique hotel just minutes from the Clipper dock just off the main road. Set in a neighborhood, you did not get the noise from the roadway. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was well appointed...full size refrigerator, microwave and stove. It was more like a condo than a hotel room. If we're ever back in Victoria,...

Great Boutique hotel, centrally located for walking and restaurants, clean and bright, well stocked kitchenette, great staff and full amenities. James Bay seems to be making a turn around for the better and if you were lucky you may even spot a cougar! :)

Thank you for choosing to stay with us - we appreciate it. We are so pleased you enjoyed the hotel and our perfect location in James Bay. Being right downtown it was very odd during your visit that a cougar had strayed into our neighbourhood. It was captured very quickly and released back into the wilderness many miles away.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on an impromptu get away. Our room was perfect..nicely appointed kitchen, comfy sitting room and cozy bed with windows on two corners. Evenings could get a little noisy with the restaurant/bar on the same corner; but things quieted down after 10pm. The staff were lovely. I would recommend for anyone looking...

I'd asked about a month prior to the stay if a two bedroom suite was available, but only one bedrooms were available at the time. Then upon arrival we were upgraded to a two bedroom for no additional charge!

Fabulous hotel. Stayed in the two bedroom suite with our two kids. Bedrooms are on opposite sides of the living area and kitchen. Everything was wonderful. Room was clean and modern, fully functioning kitchen, bathrobes, everything you need. We walked to downtown and enjoyed a wonderful evening of Ghost Tours and dinner. Easy 15 min walk back to the hotel....
