Dear Explore22353868080, The Oak Bay Beach Hotel would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your continued patronage. It is always an absolute pleasure hosting your stay and being of service. As a full-service boutique property, we are fortunate to be nestled in charming and picturesque Oak Bay, seemingly worlds away from the hustle-and-bustle of the downtown core, yet only a 12-minute drive to the Inner Harbour. Truly a slice of West Coast paradise. Thank you again for being part of our wonderful OBBH family. Until next time! Warm regards, Kate Smithbower Guest Relations

Dear Flyer15854468965, Thank you for celebrating your husband’s birthday at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel. We are thrilled we had the opportunity to meet all of your expectations for your special stay – particularly during Victoria’s unpredictable winter months. There is something truly magical about being able to witness the power of Mother Nature; storm-watch from the comfort of your guest room, Snug Pub, Dining Room, or Grand Lobby, then watch the sunrise from our heated seaside Mineral Baths. We are so pleased you were able to experience both. We hope to welcome you back again soon! Warm regards, Kate Smithbower Guest Relations

Stayed here for the night on the way to a wedding. Just amazing. Wonderful hotel, very nice all around. Didn’t get here until very very late evening. Staff was very accommodating as they knew we had traveled long. Gave us some extra time with the kids in the pools and hot tubs

Dear Seaside03898580368, The Oak Bay Beach Hotel sincerely appreciates your review. Following a rebuild completed in 2012, the new Oak Bay Beach Hotel maintains the classic English charm of the original property while incorporating sleek and modern aesthetic which is contrasted against the striking seaside, passing pods of orcas, and snow-capped Mt. Baker in the distance. It was a pleasure to host your stay - we are delighted you found it to be “absolutely perfect”. We hope we may be of service again soon! Warm regards, Kate Smithbower Guest Relations

Dear islandatheart, Our mineral baths are located seaside and require a short walk outside to access. From the hotel, simply take the elevator to GP1 level and then exit through the guest room hallway. The path will lead you to our lovely baths. Kind regards, Phil Trott Assistant General Manager
