We held my husband's 50th birthday party in the meeting room at The Lakes Grillhouse n' Bar last Saturday night. The venue was perfect, the room is not huge but not small which seemed to be the perfect size for a mingling party for 60 people - could easily fit 70. The food was amazing - we ordered plenty of finger foods and was pleased to know that ALL of the food is prepared right there on sight (nothing frozen out of a box!). We received many compliments on the food from the guests. Very, very good food! Kudos to the cook (I've forgotten his name). I want to mention the staff - they were amazing! Patrick, Scott and Katie - thank you for your attentiveness, your exceptional service, your advice in planning and for helping us to enjoy a stress free, fantastic evening. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.

The hotel itself is clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, very centrally located. They offered guests of our party a deal since we ended up having 8-9 rooms booked for the occasion. Only complaint would be that they couldn't match the on-line price which was $5 cheaper than the deal they gave us. Otherwise, my comment is that this hotel is quite comfortable. Note: it is not near the downtown core, rather in a suburban area, 20 mins from downtown by vehicle.

Thank you for your review. I have forwarded your wonderful words to the staff in The Lakes.

I apologize for the rate discrepancy. Please feel free to contact myself personally next time you stay and I WILL make sure we make that up to you. There are certain advantages though when booking a group through the hotel directly, for example the opportunity to cancel. Quite often these rates that are slightly less expensive online are pre-paid and have no option to cancel. I do however stress to my staff that we will price match and try to beat online rates if possible. Thank you very much for taking the time to share your review with the TripAdvisor Community.

Awesome price for what you get compared with other hotels in the region. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Nice clean and comfortable room in an excellent location close to Victoria downtown and the airport. Handy underground parkade with direct access to the lobby and upper floors.
Definitely it will be my choice for future trips to Victoria and area.

Room Tip: Very friendly staff. Excellent price for what you get. Nice decent rooms, underground parkade and excellent location.
