“Luxurious and off the beaten path”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

I stayed in the Oak Bay Beach Hotel for three nights while on a golf outing. It is away from the downtown core but still well situated on the ocean. Also it is quite close to some trendy restaurants in the nearby village of Oak Bay. The furnishings are first class and the rooms well appointed. I spent one afternoon relaxing in their hot pools over looking the sea which was quite welcomed after a morning of golf. I had breakfast there each morning and the food was good and wholesome. The smoked meat hash is worth a try as are the smoked salmon Eggs Benedict. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The beds were turned down each evening and fresh towels provided. I would definitely stay there again on a visit to Victoria

Room, view, beds, excellent. Staff is friendly. Shower head is a mechanical nightmare - never worked first time even after service call. Phone in room is too complex and prone to battery failure. After arrival at 11am (early) my wife waited for our room until 3pm! No one seemed to be concerned or made any effort to speed up the process or to offer her a coffee etc. Not the treatment expected at a hotel aspiring to be first class.

Room Tip: get ocean view (not above the pub)

Dear Rustgert
Thank your for choosing the Oak Bay Beach Hotel for your most recent visit to Vancouver Island. We are so pleased to hear that you found our rooms, the view and our Oak Bay Beach Dream beds to be excellent and our service team friendly. We would like to offer our sincere apologies that you had some difficulties with the shower head and our cordless phone system. We will be sure to work with our facilities personnel to rectify those issues. We are sorry that we were not able to accommodate an early arrival for you and your wife. We find that almost all of our guests take advantage of our 12:00 noon check-out making it challenging to have our rooms prepared for arrivals earlier than our guaranteed 4pm check-in. We do encourage guests to take full advantage of our spa and mineral pool facilities while we carefully prepare their guestroom but do agree that an offer of coffee or tea should be part of Our Best service offering.
We do hope to welcome you and your wife back on a future visit to the Island.
Best regards
Michelle Le Sage
Hotel Manager

My husband & I wanted a quick weekend getaway to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and after lots of research, I decided on the Oak Bay Beach Hotel. We wanted to be close to Victoria, but also wanted to relax. This hotel was simply perfect. The rooms are very large and modern. I loved the bathroom area and the soaking tub was fabulous. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. The pool area is open 24 hours and the water was warm and relaxing. We will definitely be back!!

I was concerned that my expectations would be too high based on reading the previous reviews. The hotel turned out to be an oasis. The rooms were lovely (bathrooms incredible) and the service was top notch. The oceanside pools were the highlight - no crowds and very relaxing. We're looking forward to returning.

We enjoyed a 2 day stay at OBBH Aug 2-3, 2014. The location is stunning and the rooms beautiful. The hotel is also just a short 15 minute walk away from Oak Bay Ave with a quaint selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Very Satisfactory
- amazing ocean view from morning, noon, til night
- second to none poolside experience
- exquisite hotel interior and exterior detailed design
- friendly front desk staff, prompt valet and room service
- extra room amenities than one requires

Opportunites for Improvement
- Airconditioning on room without ocean view mediocre. After following staff's suggestion to close skylights blind and turning on/off aircon still had to bring a fan in the middle of the night. Rooms with ocean view can do without airconditioning.

- Shower lever on my parent's room had to be turned forcibly. Our's was fine.

- Customer service needs to be true to their words - I called the hotel to ask if there was a tablet charger cable left in our room and possibly with lost and found. Agent said will call back on the phone number I left. 2 days have past, still no call. Log calls and do follow-up would improve customer service.

Room Tip: Ocean view room 3rd floor and up

Dear Josareli F
Thank you for choosing the Oak Bay Beach Hotel for your Victoria getaway. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our hotel facilities, location, seaside mineral pools and extensive amenities.

We recently stayed two nights. It was years ago before reconstruction when I was last at the hotel. They've done a great job on the rebuild. Still has the ambiance of the old hotel but with all the modern conveniences. Nice walk to Oak Bay Avenue for shopping, etc. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Our top floor room had vaulted ceilings and lovely big windows. Rooms on water side are quieter and...
