My husband and I stayed at Abigail's for 3 nights on our honeymoon last fall. We arrived before check in and the very welcoming and friendly women at the front desk took our luggage and gladly stored it in a locked room for us. Upon coming back to the hotel we were escorted into our room.. Wow. The rooms really separate Abigail's from your what you generally expect when you think "hotel." We were downstairs in one in Ruby queen room. It was so homey and the bed/bedding was incredibly plush and comfortable. Later we were moved to a Rose room on the 3rd floor, which had a king bed and double sided fire place. While the second room was much more spacious than the first, both were wonderful!
The hors d'oeuvres at 5 pm were varied and really tasty. The library and breakfast area are both great spots to hang out and relax. There is a huge selection of books and movies available for guests to borrow. We loved coming back to the hotel to unwind and relax after our bouts of exploring Victoria on foot.
The breakfast - Wow. The incredible staff make you feel instantly accommodated by welcoming you to take any seat and offering tea or coffee. The breakfast is 3 courses each morning and you can select between a light, sweet, or savory option. We didn't have anything we didn't like. It's a substantial enough breakfast to leave you feeling satisfied but was never so heavy that we felt too full.
We loved Victoria almost as much as we loved Abigail's. It rained the entire time we were visiting, but it didn't bother us at all. I found it charming and romantic. We used Abigail's umbrellas and explored the city on foot a few hours at a time, and then snuggled up in the cozy rooms/library at Abigail's. A truly perfect combination!
STAY HERE. You won't be disappointed. A huge thank you to the staff for being so friendly, accommodating and helpful. We did encounter some problems with our departure, as our flight back to Seattle was canceled due to very severe winds in Victoria. The ladies working behind the desk were MORE than happy to call Kenmore air, the bus company in Seattle, AND the hotel we were to be staying at in Portland that night, all on my behalf. I really think it's hard to find better service anywhere, thanks again!!! We hope to return one day :)
