Thanks for the great feedback Calgary Candis!
I'm thrilled you had a nice stay with us, and we really do get a kick out of spoiling our guest :)
We hope to see you back soon,
Victoria's Luxury Spa Boutique Hotel
My travel agent sent out e-mail requests for availability and price for an early check-in (10 or 11am) to three hotels in Victoria. The Magnolia telephoned back *immediately* and said, 'no problem, no charge for early check in, whenever he wants to arrive'. That got them the business!
I was surprised to find that the hotel building was not an old one; certainly inside it is decorated in a 'clubby' style - very cosy and comfortable.
The room was very comfortable and quite spacious. Front desk was friendly and efficient. Answers to questions about locations in Victoria were given quickly and fully.
I was a bit disappointed in the noise transmitted through walls. Whilst not ultimately a problem, once could hear conversations next door, although in this case it was probably a loud cell call.
No hesitation in going back to the magnolia next time I'm in Victoria.
This little hotel is truly a "diamond". Centrally located, superior customer service always, cozy and comfortable rooms with Aveda bath products for a little bit of luxury away from home. Have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed.
Front desk staff are friendly and helpful
I had a great 2-day stay here last week. I'm sure the photos of this hotel speak for themselves - the rooms and decor are very tasteful and elegant, and it's in a great location. What was exceptional about this stay was the helpfulness of one particular staff member, who went above and beyond to accommodate my dietary restrictions at the continental breakfast for both of the days that I stayed here. I approached him to ask about the dairy free/meat free options at the continental breakfast, of which were very limited. I hadn't anticipated being able to eat there to begin with, and thanked him and said I would go elsewhere, but he further inquired what it was that I was looking for, and what ingredients it would take to make it. He made me a fantastic dairy-free smoothie and was there again the next day to make my special breakfast again. His level of service further stands out because the second day before I saw him, I asked a different staff member who was in the breakfast room for a dairy free smoothie, and she replied that they didn't do smoothies/it wasn't possible. I've worked in the service industry myself, and I really appreciated the extra effort and willingness he made to ensure I started my day off right.
We decided on the Magnolia Hotel for a weekend in Victoria after reading the TripAdvisor reviews.
The key thing that stood out during our stay was the service ethos. Every interaction with hotel staff was positive, including front desk staff, continental breakfast service, cleaning personnel, and the valet.
We stayed in a corner signature room which was plenty roomy, despite the rollaway bed for our daughter, with views of the Empress and BC Legislature building. The room was very clean and included both a shower and bathtub. The continental breakfast was excellent.
The hotel's in a great location, within walking distance to all the Inner Harbour attractions.
My only issue with the hotel was its spotty/slow WiFi. There was an Ethernet connection in the room, but that didn't help with non-Ethernet devices (e.g., iPhone and iPad). It was nice that they had computers with free printing in the business center.
We will definitely stay here again.
Had a great stay in January 2012! The location is great...convenient walking distance to lots of restaurants and shops. Also an easy walk to the waterfront and parliament buildings. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
