“Great visit!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Just stayed one night but the rooms were excellent and luxurious. Staff was friendly and helpful. Picture perfect views and just a shirt walk to trendy Oak Bay shopping. Definitely would stay again. Ate at Kate's one night and although they did not get our order correct twice, were very accommodating in the correction of the errors. Food quality decent.

This rebuilt Oak Bay Beach Hotel is stunning in every respect. The view from the bar across the ocean to the neighboring islands is 'better than the postcard'. Our suite was immense and fully kitted out. Bathroom was larger than many normal hotel rooms! Bed was so big we had to text each other to keep in touch.

Staff were most helpful throughout. A great combination of professionalism and friendliness.

The heated mineral pools are open 24/7 and the smaller pools are heated to bath temperature. Why go anywhere else?

We didn't eat in the restaurant proper but the Bar served great wings and a good selection of ales.

They just need to get a 'grown up' to sort out the Cafe which was chaotic and seemed to have no system to get orders fulfilled. So just stay in the pool and eat there.

Room Tip: Go on get a suite. They are fabulous

Dear Mr Ecosse
We are thrilled to hear that you had such a memorable time with us and had the opportunity to enjoy so many of our hotel amenities during your stay. Our sincere apologies that we did not provide you with Our Best during your visit to Kate’s Café; our quaint street side café has quickly become a local’s favourite which can sometime cause the service team to become a little overwhelmed. We will be sure to focus more of our food and beverage management team’s time and efforts in this area.
We do hope to welcome you back again in the near future and will be sure to include a special texting plan to ensure you can stay in touch.
Our best
Michelle Le Sage

I stayed at the hotel when it first opened and enjoyed the spa. Since that time I head to the hotel weekly to enjoy coffee at the Cafe while on my morning walks in the community or to the spa - two to three times monthly - where I am now a member.

Room Tip: Spend a little extra and reserve a room with an ocean view!

Large beautifully furnished rooms with electric fireplaces and balconies. Located right on the water. Mineral pools are included in your stay and are open 24 hours. Make sure to enjoy the eucalyptus steam room located next to the exercise room. The restaurants are great and the staff is fantastically friendly and welcoming. Your stay includes access to a driver and mercedes sedan (complimentary) that you can book to take you downtown and back. I just loved this place and can't wait to go back. Large soaker tub in the bathroom and separate shower. More than I expected for the price!

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny.

a perfect getaway minutes from downtown Victoria! If you prefer a smaller first class hotel this is for you. Beautiful rooms, fully equipped kitchens. The mineral pools overlooking the ocean, the spa ( thanks to Lara for a perfect pedicure), the eucalyptus steam room, cozy robes to wander in from your room and back...quiet, clean and excellent value.
We will be back!

My wife & I researched a number of hotels in the Victoria area for our trip in May 2014. We even booked two others before we settled on Oak Bay Beach Hotel. I'm glad we chose this location. The hotel is elegant, comfortable, friendly, and we got a great deal on line, receiving a $40/day resort voucher. The rooms are well appointed and very clean, beds comfy (pillows could use a rethink), great soaker tub & separate shower. The only areas that I found a bit different were; the residential aspect of the hotel. Our room had a stovetop, sink, mini-fridge, microwave, dishes, and so on. I could get used to this, but I am not used to it, so it felt a bit odd. The other point was the replenishing of essentials by housekeeping. It took us three days for us to figure out that coffee, water, toilet tissue, etc., was refilled at evening turndown service, which we declined by leaving our "privacy" light on. Otherwise, I just don't think you could do better than this hotel. It is really wonderful and we wouldn't stay any place else if we get back to Victoria.

Room Tip: A room facing the pool / water would be the way to go. It is beautiful.

We went for our anniversary weekend away. It is a great resort for couples. The spa was fantastic and the location is quiet! We usually stay near the harbour in Victoria, but it was so nice to stay in a more quiet (less touristy) area! Highly recommend this hotel.
