    It’s a great old building and staffed with excellent people. At triple the cost of most hotels are we getting triple the returns on our money? Hard to answer.

    The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! The hotel is in the heart of downtown Victoria so we were able to walk almost everywhere.

    We got a knock on our door after 9pm for turn down service which normally wouldn't be a problem but our children were sleeping at the time.

    Beautiful Hotel and Treated Beautifully

    We spent Christmas there and they provided us with a stocking on our door for Christmas Day. The staff was extremely helpful at every opportunity, and very responsive to our needs.

    My only smallest complaint would be the expense. The hotel is very expensive, but the service largely drives that expense and it really made for a wonderful experience for me and my wife.

    Beds were nice and comfortable, Bartenders were great and had suggestions to get value for your money.

    Price was excessive compared to other hotels in the area. Considering the price, wifi was not included.

    I have a problem with the ATM but they did not help me at all. They only said that the ATM is not of the hotel ,but I think they have to be more helpful in this cases.
