“The Best!!!”
Reviewed 8 July 2010

We stayed 2 nights last week at the Abigail & we would give it 10 stars if we could. The hotel & our room was spotless, roomy, very comfortable. The staff was exceeding helpful and always ready with a recommendation, made reservations for us at restaurants & music venues. The breakfasts were out-of-this-world delicious. We will definitely be back & can't recommend the Abigail more highly.

Abigail's is a small inn located in the center of Victoria that combines charm and excellent service. The first night we met some really interesting people in the library during the late afternoon tea/cocktail hour. It is within walking distance to restaurants, shops, cultural locations, and the waterfront. Your stay includes delicious breakfasts served in a lovely little cafe. The excellent service started with making reservations to say. Everyone on the staff at Abigail's is friendly and professional. The rooms are nicely appointed with antique furniture. If you are someone who perfers to stay at a small hotel rather than a chain, Abigail's is an excellent choice in Victoria.

Abigail's was beautiful. The room was very quaint, with all the necessary amenities. When we arrived there were fresh baked cookies in our room. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and solicitous. The chef was outstanding - there were two main breakfast choices in the morning and delicious appetizers, including chocolate covered strawberries starting around 5pm. The female pastry chef was doing the cooking while we were there, she's only there 2 days a week, the rest of the time is their staff chef, so we didn't get to taste his food. The location was perfect. It was off the beaten path, so it was quiet, but super close to everything. We walked everywhere with no problem. There's free wi-fi in the library and a computer room with one computer which is also free. I also got a massage our last day, and the massage therapist was very accommodating (we were on a tight schedule) and very good.

Here's what sold us: they let us see the rooms and pick the one that called our name. I don't usually use the jacuzzi tubs when we travel but here the rooms are so clean that I soaked my aching bones. The staff, especially Chris are so well mannered and personable. Two years after our initial visit he remembered us. That's pretty cool. The luxurious rooms, linens, fireplace and attention to detail in the decor was a treat. The evening appetizers, the glass of wine in the library before retiring and the amazing gourmet breakfast aroma wafting to our room in the morning all add to the value we receive when we stay at Abigails.

After a very hectic schedule across Canada we arrived weary to this lovely hotel. Even booking in was a pleasure when offered coffee and pressed to have freshly baked scones by the delightful staff. The room was wonderful with a lovely fireplace that was also shared by the ensuite bathroom. This had the biggest rainfall shower on the planet!!! After a hectic whale watching trip and dinner, it was wonderful to just relax in this lovely room. the first time we had relaxed in three weeks.
If I had a criticism it would be that I thought I would have a heart attack when tackling the three storeys by stairs. Thank goodness we had very little luggage with us. The accommodation far made up for this though.

All the convenience of a hotel w/o the unwanted impersonality ; all the charm of a b&b w/o the unwanted intimacy. Plus Max behind the breakfast bar makes the worlds best granola from scratch and willingly shares the recipe.

This charming hotel has got all the little things right! From the weather report thoughtfully included on the breakfast menu, the incredible beds that have you sleeping like a baby, to the personalised "can do" service, it's obvious that the owners and managers care deeply about their guests' experience.

We were in town to visit family, but Abigail's turned out to be the unexpected joy of our time in Victoria. We stayed in the Coach House and were enchanted by the beautiful room and the fantastic service of the staff. The hearty and wonderfully cooked breakfasts by Matt and Victoria started out every day perfectly! Matt even allowed me to pick his brains about local cuisine and food trends.

We will be back!

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
