Reviewed 28 December 2011

We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at the Magnolia and it was wonderful. This was our first Christmas without any of our kids at home and we wanted a magical experience. We were not disappointed. The hotel service was excellent, lthere wer lots of nice touches - coffee and treats all day in the lobby, water and fruit provided in our room. Our room was large with a fireplace and large sofa and wonderful views. We opted for the "hot rum toddy" for turndown at night. I would highly recommend the hotel for personal or business trips.

Room Tip: We had the corner signature room - amazing views of the harbour and parliament buildings.

Thanks for the wonderful review Robyn!

We're thrilled that you joined us for Christmas this year and had such a wonderful visit.
As a small and intimate hotel, our team has really enjoyed making the holiday season a fun time with touches like our hot toddy turndown service, hot cider and cookies, hot chocolate making station, and wine and cheese receptions.
We hope to see you back again,

Happy New Year!

I had a business trip, which placed me in Victoria for an overnight stay. I loved it! The hotel was great! One of the best I have ever stayed in. And IT Was the little things that they did that impressed me. The rooms were spacious and comfy. Roomservice was quick and reasonalbey priced. the bath and shower were awesome. The other little items like mending kit, shoe shine and lotion were nice additions. I save all hotel and give them to the women's shelters, so I am sure someone it the shelter was very happy to get these nice items. I would recommend everyone stay at this hotel. You are treated well. There were two things that I had asked to get corrected, one was my lotion was hald gone ( I guess the maid missed replacing this one) they had someone within 5 minutes bring me a replacement and more. Also my bill had valet charge in error, one email and it was fixed and an apology with it. I really like this hotel for the location, price (100), nice furniture, beds, pillow galore, great sleep. Hopefully I will get to visit Victoria again, and this is definately where I will be staying. Thank You!!

I had always been interested in this lovely little hotel and when my husband and I had the opportunity to stay for the weekend we jumped at it. From the minute we arrived until the minute we left we were impressed. The staff was so professional and friendly and even remembered our names! The room was lovely with a beuatiful view of the inner harbour and the Parliament buildings to the side. The bed was very comfy and the bathtub was a treat! The hotel was quite busy but we never heard a noise in our room from other visitors.The continental breakfast was the best we have ever encountered and we have seen alot of breakfasts!! We had dinner at Prime, the restaurant attached to the hotel and had the same experience there. Amazing staff and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Room Tip: we stayed in 704 and it was very nice

We stayed at this property just for one night. I could have stayed forever. At check in there was a table of Christmas cookies and hot apple cider. We had a car with us - and parking for the night was around $20 for valet service. The front desk fellow levelled with us and told us that if we were only there until morning then street parking would likely work for us - free until 9:30 am!
Our room was lovely, complete with turn down service, and lovely local chocolates. Free bottled water - and free coffee service. Comfy robes and slippers were provided and then... one of my favourite things; Aveda bath product!

The bathroom had a shower stall separate from the very comfortable bathtub.

In the morning we took advantage of the free continental breakfast which was amazing. I have received less at other hotel buffets and paid $20+ for it. Nice selection of baked goods, fruits, cheeses, and cold cuts. There was also yogurt and cereal. Nevermind the waffles, which the staff offered to make to order for us if we so desired.

As for the location it couldn't be any better. The hotel is in the heart of downtown and steps from the harbour.

I can't say enough good things about this amazing hotel. I would stay again in a minute.

Had a little trouble checking in when we found out upon arrival that there was an extra charge of $30/night for a second guest. After a lengthy discussion at the front desk, we resolved the issue. Frustrating start. A call later from the hotel manager resolved the situation to our satisfaction. Very nice, comfortable rooms. Great location. Enjoyed the continental breakfast very much.

I can't say enough good things about my stay. This is how a hotel should be, this is the true definition of hospitality and customer service. The rooms are spacious and spotless. The bathroom featured a tub and a seperate shower. The loby and decor is elegant, but not stuffy. The hotel staff is very courteous, efficient and helpful. The continental breakfast was the best I've had in a long time (made to order waffles are always nice!). This is my new preferred place to stay in Victoria.

From the front desk assistance, to the room upgrade, the extra personal (house cleaner) attention, and the morning complimentary breakfast....I can not SAY ENOUGH.

I will be back....this is why you have won awards for 2010.

Thank you.

Room Tip: Rooms 06 are the best....partial view of harbor
