This hotel is in a beautiful area. The views from the soaker tub, in the corner of the room, out the huge corner windows are amazing. The front desk staff could tell guests that the view from the restaurant above the hotel can see directly into the rooms so beware to close the blinds. The carpets were absolutely filthy. I...

The view was amazing, rooms were all clean and fresh (only the carpet was dirty... but u are not looking at the carpet when u are there :D). Bathtub next to the window with that view is a wonderful idea. If u are on vancouver islands YOU NEED TO STAY HERE.

Myself and my partner visited Victoria for the first time last October (2015). The only thing we wanted to do was go Whale watching and left everything else to the last minute. We stumbled across the Moon Water Lodge ... just wow!! 5* rating doesn't do it justice. As their website back then was a little hard to get to...

We were very excited to stay here due to the pictures of the scenery from the room. The scenery was not disappointing. It was breathtaking. We arrived at 9pm there was no one at the office and a note saying go to the restaurant to check in. No biggy. When we got to the room we were very disappointed in...

I had to go over to the island for a wedding, and as such decided to treat myself to a hotel stay the night after. I looked at a few surrounding the area and decided this one looked the best. And I loved it! Each room has it's own door on the outside (the side facing away from the water)...

This by far has been the best hotel on the Girls Road Trip. Located 30 minutes outside Victoria on Route 1, this place had the most spectacular view that we got up all 3 mornings to watch the sunrise . Yes you could hear some road noise if you listened for it, but we slept with our window and screen...

The Best view of any room I've stayed anywhere. The family-run hotel and restaurant sits high above the forested inlet providing a beautiful morning wakeup. We were welcomed and made to feel at home in a very quiet, peaceful setting. Food and view were also excellent in the adjacent restaurant, with the family making that part of our stay great...

This place is magical. The view is stunning and the rooms are so private. It's a very romantic place to take someone special. The restaurant next door offered great meals and had great staff. I would definitely go back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
NEW OWNERS APRIL 2014! We are a west-coast style, boutique hotel, located near the top of the historic, Malahat Drive on Vancouver Island. Overlooking the Saanich Inlet, you will be taken a world away from the routine of day to day life. Beautiful British Columbia encapsulated; mountains, ocean, birds, orcas, trees, all right outside your window. Drink in the sunrise along with your morning coffee; then settle in for the evening and watch, as the moon rises in the night sky and its reflection is mirrored by the calm waters below. Each room boasts a large, two person soaker tub, with nothing between you and the great outdoors except a large, picture window! Turn on the gas fireplace, pour yourself a drink and take some time to relax, rejuvenate and restore! ... more   less

“Room 10 is noisy. Could here the people above walking around and filling the bath tub. I think a top room would be quiet.”
