After searching the hotels in the area this is far the best. The atmosphere feels historical yet the rooms are modern and spacious. The dining room attached is excellent. Plus it is dog friendly with nice grass around the hotel. The compliment breakfast is a full hot meal.

The hotel is old but in a nice way. The older pictures hanging in the rooms and halls are amazing. The room was very clean, staff was helpful and friendly. The beds were comfortable and the room was larger than many newer hotels. The bathroom tile could have used a re-grouting but that would be my only complaint. The food...

The staff was friendly when meeting in the halls etc. The included breakfast was good, although it would have been better to...

Having stayed at the Waddling Dog in the past, I did not hesitate to book my pre flight overnight stay there a few weeks ago. I was not disappointed at all and felt almost at home upon check in. The room was spotless and had some of that old English charm that the tudor style Inn itself reflects. Nice quiet...

Good hotel for park and fly as the room rate includes parking while on holiday as well as cab fare to the airport.Very convenient for early flights out of Victoria international.Not recommended for longer than a two night stay due to location and smaller rooms.

We love this Inn, but after reading reviews we were nervous. We were NOT disappointed. Comfortable, lovely atmosphere, clean. New roof and carpets. Good breakfast. John at the desk so friendly and loving. Will always think of this Inn first when coming to the island. Not necessarily for young children. Those wanting 5 star hotels best pay for them.

We choose this hotel for the last two nights of your vacation because it was close to the airport. Don't bother, the place is old which is ok but they have not spent a dime keeping it presentable in years. It smells and has water damaged ceilings in the bathroom. The quality of the bathroom and bed linens is terrible....

After and unfortunate experience at a hotel in Victoria, B.C. we stayed at the Waddling Dog Inn in Central Saanich B.C. What a great old place. We ended up staying three nights. It was like a visit to old England complete with the pleasant older lady at the front desk and the adorable basset hound named "John" who also worked...
