This interesting hotel is in a historic building and is old with narrow hallways. We had a two bedroom suite and both rooms were upstairs with a living, kitchen and bathroom downstairs. We had a spacious king bedroom and the kids had twin beds which were great for us. If you have mobility issues, you need to inquire ahead about rooms. We faced the inside, and had only the courtyard window. A little dark, but we weren't there to stay indoors. Either way it was very large. The place was clean, found a few leftover odds and ends from previous travelers, but things happen. The only thing that bothered me was the smell on our floor. I believe some staff lived there and the whole thing smelled like food. It was a little overwhelming. Made us feel like we were in an apartment building. But, it was part of the experience. We really liked the location, we found Victoria quaint and walkable. Parking is offsite and reasonable. A few tips for a stay here: find a grocery store before you get into the heart of town, it was hard to find a convenient store for basics. Brew pubs in BC at least, don't allow kids to eat in their establishments. Somewhere this should be noted, like when you cross the border or somewhere. We could not eat in Swan's pub, because we had our kids with us. We ran into this problem in many places. However, right down the street the Canoe brewery has a beautiful place and a restaurant area that allow kids, and have a kids menu. I would stay here again for space and location, it was unique and the front desk folks were really kind, I don't recall names. Overall a nice stay. The art is also cool, and good coffee in walking distances.
