From being greeted in the parking lot before we got our suitcases out - to the room, the service, the breakfasts (oh my - the breakfasts!) - this trip was amazing and Abigail's was outstanding. The staff went out of their way with customer service - they were very knowledgeable, helpful. The breakfasts were so good - amazing fresh fruit every morning, gourmet selections, baked goods. The wine and appies in the evening were such a nice way to meet other guests. The rooms are well appointed, very clean. Will recommend this to anyone traveling to the west coast - and will stay here again.

I travel for a living and stay at large hotels weekly so for a short 3 night visit to Victoria for our anniversary I chose this small B&B based on the ratings here on TA. It was truly a fantastic place to stay. From our arrival I knew something was really special about this place. The young ladies who staff reception are so friendly and helpful. Every request was met with pleasure and a smile. Special kudos to Alice who helped us with dinner reservations and recommendations but all of her colleagues were equally accommodating.
Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We had a fireplace and a great tub/rain shower combination. Only one odd thing to report. The fireplace connects the bedroom and the bathroom so you can enjoy it from either place- however it means that the bathroom/toilet is visible from the bedroom and there is little privacy when using the toilet. We both found that odd and a bit uncomfortable. That aside the room was great.
The breakfast is also fantastic and unique. My wife is gluten free and they willingly made adjustments to the menu to accommodate her.
There are snacks and drinks available in the evening as well.
Abigail's is a short walk to most of the major attractions in town and far enough away from the tourist center to offer a respite from the crowds.
Overall I would highly recommend staying here to anyone planning a visit to Victoria.
One other word that has nothing to do with the hotel. The seagulls in Victoria are the noisiest I have ever heard. You get used to them after a night but they are very loud.

I wish it were possible to give more than five stars to this wonderful boutique hotel, nestled in a quiet neighborhood just a few short blocks from downtown Victoria BC. My husband and I stayed here years ago and loved it, so when a friend asked me to join her in Victoria, I suggested that we stay here. It was even better than I had remembered. The hotel itself is quite charming, with a lovely garden and patio where you can enjoy your morning tea or afternoon wine. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the beds are incredibly comfortable, with high quality linen, and the baths have soft rain shower heads. Everything is first class. Breakfast is included and the chef is amazing - three courses with several choices, everything was delicious and it was hard to choose. In the afternoon hors d'oeuvres are served along with wine or your choice of cocktail. There is an extra charge for alcoholic drinks, but it is minimal and well worth it. Housekeeping is efficient - your room is "done up" while you are out and everything is immaculate when you return. But the staff is what makes Abigail's. They are amazing. Every single person, day and night, went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. No request goes unattended. They will give you suggestions for where to eat - listen to them, they know what they are talking about. They will give you suggestions on where to walk and what routes to take so that you have the best scenery. And if you take a city bus tour, be sure to buy your tickets at the hotel - much cheaper than buying them on site! My friend stayed at the Empress Hotel last time she was in Victoria, and she said it doesn't compare to Abigail's. I highly recommend this little boutique hotel - find a reason to go to Victoria so you can stay
here! And be sure to have at least one meal at Matisse - food is wonderful and the service is great.

Room Tip: I've stayed here twice and had wonderful rooms both times - can't imagine there is a bad roo...

Abigails is a small hotel adjacent downtown Victoria. It is more of a B & B than a hotel, both in character and amenities. It's location gives one the feel of being part of the neighbourhood but still within easy walking of all Victorias highlights. Appetizers and wine were wonderful as was the included breakfast. Most likely the most comfortable bed and bedding I have ever experienced. If you are looking for an alternative to the big hotels, this is the place.

We travel a lot but despite living in Vancouver, we rarely get to Victoria. This time we went with a sister and brother in law for a reunion of sorts with old friends and picked the Abigail because of the excellent reviews. We were not disappointed. This is a fabulous place to stay - great look and feel of the rooms, first class presentation, excellent staff all around - more than pleasant and very helpful but always genuine and never fake. Having parking and breakfast provided brings actual cost of the room down and the breakfast is much more than the usual 'breakfast included' fare. Unique each morning, several choices, really well done. Very good wifi and it and the other room amenities (AC, IPod docking station, etc) worked very well. No elevator here which was not a problem for us but could be for people with mobility issues. The neigbourhood was very quiet and seemed like it was quasi residential so if its nightlife beside you that you are looking for, this may not be the place but it is quite central to the heart of downtown maybe a 10 minute walk. All in all, we couldn't have been more impressed. This is a well run operation that deserves the reviews.

Room Tip: There is no elevator here so if people have difficulty walking up stairs, ask for a room on a lower...

This was our first visit to Victoria and staying at Abigail's was second to none... Outstanding food, service, staff, and everything in between. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend to others if visiting Victoria. I can't wait to return!!

I have done a lot of travelling around the world and I usually don't like to stay in the same place twice, but every time I go to Victoria I stay at Abigail's. I made the mistake once of staying somewhere else and ended up day dreaming of the comfortable beds, the beautiful quiet rooms, the lovely garden and the first class breakfast at Abigail's.

Truly my favourite in every aspect. You will not regret staying here.

Room Tip: The two honeymoon suites are worth every penny.

Abigail's Hotel is a unique accommodation experience that blurs the lines between a small luxury hotel and a heritage bed-and-breakfast Inn.

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
