Abigail's is an excellent hotel with many of the qualities of a B&B. A pretty house, located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, it is a little way from the harbour and centre of Victoria, but the walk is no great distance. The public rooms - a library/lounge and a breakfast room - are pleasantly decorated, the bedrooms may have a flounce or furbelow too many for some tastes.
The warm welcome and helpful service from all the staff is really outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and their recommendations for restaurants and other attractions are reliable and first-rate.
Breakfasts, all home-made, are incomparable - choice of juices, a fruit dish, choice of three cooked dishes, different every day, excellent home-bakes, fine coffee...worth coming here for the breakfasts alone. There are also complimentary "hors d'oeuvres" at 5 pm. The house wines, at $6 a glass, are good. No other meals are served.
The only draw-back - and I think we were unlucky - was the size of our bedroom (2A), very cramped, with too little drawer-space to unpack properly, though there was a good wardrobe, and the queen-size bed was comfortable. Nevertheless the room felt airless (there is a/c if you like it). The tiny shower-room and WC was too small for a basin, which was in the bedroom. Glimpses of other spacious bedrooms suggested that 2A was an exception, more suitable as a single, or perhaps just for one night (we were there for three). The rates are not inexpensive, so one might hope for a room which was not so tiny. But overall, a fine, enjoyable hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Abigail's Hotel is a unique accommodation experience that blurs the lines between a small luxury hotel and a heritage bed-and-breakfast Inn. Abigail's is an adult-only, intimate 23-room property that is housed in a 1930's Tudor mansion. Its special atmosphere blends the romance and charm of the past with the comfort and convenience of modern accommodation. Located in romantic Victoria, British Columbia, Abigail's is quietly situated on the edge of the bustling downtown core and is three short blocks from Victoria's Inner Harbour, within walking distance of all the major downtown attractions and restaurants. Life is too short to be conventional, discover a splendour and charm that has been lost to the ages and uniquely exists at Abigail's. ... more less
