Oak Bay Beach Hotel
Ranked #3 of 46 Hotels in Victoria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Fastest check-in I have ever had. No extra charge for parking and WI-FI. Great location, very peaceful. Slept with the windows open and was not woken up once by sirens or seaplanes. I have traveled to Victoria many times and find the downtown hotels noisy. Rooms are gorgeous, views are fantastic and staff are clearly well trained. The beds and the linen are first class. You sense attention to detail here. The Oak Bay Beach Hotel gets customer service

I loved our stay at Oak Bay! It seems that every detail is attended to. The staff was wonderful, attentive and accommodating! My husband and I came to celebrate our 10 year anniversary leaving our little ones at home. We could not have picked a better place. It is by far the nicest place I have stayed. The view and pools are amazing!! So relaxing! We enjoyed walking to dinner every night. We love evening strolls and their are many nice options for dining within a mile or two along the coastline. Beautiful!

What a fantastic hotel... everything was perfect, from the big beautiful room, incredibly comfortable beds, great soaker tub, fabulous view, delicious food, wonderful service and amazing pools. Our girls (6 & 9) were in heaven which made for a very relaxing holiday for us parents. What we loved the most about Oak Bay Beach Hotel: (1) The big warm pool and hot tubs are right on the ocean and are open 24 hours--Brilliant! We swam twice a day and it was never busy. (2) The brunch in the dining room was excellent and kept us full for the rest of the day. (3) It was super handy to have Kate's Cafe in the hotel for a quick snack and a coffee. The sandwiches and baked goods were really yummy and it would have been a lovely atmosphere for a coffee with a friend or a place to sit with a lap top. (4) The mini kitchen in our room was also very handy. (5) The location was great--the scenic drive to and from DT Victoria each day was quick (12 min?) and allowed us to see different parts of Victoria and Oak Bay. Highly recommend this hotel for anyone. It is well worth it!

On a sunny day this hotel is truly an outstanding location,the rooms are excellent,the views to die for. Unfortuneatly while no fault of the hotel the parking lot next door was being renovated for both of the days we visited and the noise level was incredible. We actually left during the day and went to another location to avoid the disruption. When I asked the desk clerk how long this would go on for he shrugged and seemed totally disinterested. The pub is well located and reasonable for this class of establishment . Nice walks in the area and close to the Oak Bay shopping street. We would certainly go again.

Room Tip: definitely a room overlooking the ocean.

Our family of 4 drove from California to WA, then ferried over to Victoria, the Oak Bay Beach Hotel surely made the trip worth every mile! The hotel is new and beautifully designed and furnished. The staff was friendly and helpful including giving us warm blankets as we enjoyed dinner on the ocean-view veranda. The room was well appointed with a awesome bathroom which included a heated floor, Jacuzzi tub and cozy shower. We enjoyed our stay.

The staff was particularly friendly. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds are incredibly comfortable. The mineral pools are heavenly and the view is second to none.
Only one problem...the stay was far too short!

Had an incredible stay, especially enjoyed the mineral pools, late night pizza from the 24 hour kitchen, and seeing that much of the original hotel is a part of the new one. Any staff member I asked were very polite and welcoming. Arrangements for trips into downtown Victoria were easy to make.
