I picked this hotel based on previous reviews. We enjoyed staying at Abigail's. The property is beautiful inside and out. We stayed in the coach house c-4. Carrying heavy luggage up the four flights of steps might seem challenging to some people. The front desk attendents were happy to help if we needed it. The coach house gives you a bit more privacy since it's seperate from the main part. But the drawback is the road noise. At least in c-4. The coach house is built very close to the road. We never heard any other guests but we did wake to road noise each morning. Since this is in a residential area, we were surprised. The room has a fireplace. We used it once. The loveseat is very close to the fireplace. Felt crapped. The other reason I opted for this room was the jetted jacuzzi. This was probably the biggest flaw for us. The jacuzzi was very loud with 4 jets. We only used it once because of this. It just wasn't that peaceful. The timer on/off switch is located about as far away from the tub as possible. Not convenient if you want to turn it off without getting out of the tub. The tub is very deep which is nice for soaking but may be hard for elderly people to get in and out of since it's set into a space. A very nice big rain type shower head. All the soap, shampoo and conditioner is located on the shower wall. Nice. The linens and towels were wonderful. The bed was on the very firm side for my taste. The light switch for the bathroom is outside the bathroom with no way to turn it down once inside the bathroom. With that said, I'd opt to stay in a king room in the main hotel and forgo the fireplace and jacuzzi. We loved the smallness of this hotel. We were greeted each time with a very nice staff. The morning breakfast was truely a treat! A new menu each day with at least 3 options plus fruit, juice, muffin and beverage of choice. Delicious. Promptly waited on with a professional waitstaff. A great start to the day. The afternoon appetizers looked very good, but we only arrived once in time to enjoy them. Walking to the wharf only took about 10 mins. and was a great way to see even more of beautiful Victoria. I would highly recommend this hotel if you want to be away from downtown and want a more unique experience. If you are wondering about tipping at the hotel, they pool the tips and divide them amongst the staff. That was news to me and I thought I'd share this with you. We highly recommend this hotel.
