“Great service, great location, best bed ever”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Not going to lie, I'm still basking in the glow after having slept in one of the best hotel beds ever. The Chateau located at the foot of Blanchard a walk off Douglas is perfectly aligned to ALL sight seeing in Victoria especially perfect if you're doing it on foot. The Royal Museum, Beacon Hill Park, Harbour Front, the Empress, Legislative buildings to name a few of the not-to-miss Victoria hot spots are within steps of your front door. Clives an amazing lounge with its bible of cocktails is housed within the Chateau along with Vista 18 - offering sublime views of the city while serving up spectacular cuisine. The hotel itself has recently under gone some renovations, WOWZERS! We have stayed here both pre and post renovations = GREAT JOB! Perfect for your four legged friends too. Our only wince is the bathrooms are painfully small. Free shuttle as well with a super friendly driver!

Room Tip: If you are traveling with your pet, request a room on the second floor which has easy access to a gr...

Thank you hemlockcottage for your very kind review and for choosing the Chateau Victoria Hotel and Suites once again during your visit to Victoria. Thank you for noticing our renovations, we are almost complete our latest project of transforming our hallways. You have certainly pointed out some great amenities that we offer for being so close to downtown and the great view from Vista 18 – you can see the Royal Museum which is only two minutes away from the hotel.

We also do offer pet friendly rooms on the sixth floor as well that will give you and your four legged friend a bit more room in the living room and bathroom, however we understand that being on the second floor has easy access to the green spaces just across the street from the hotel. Please be assured your gracious comments have been shared with our entire team – everyone enjoys a great review! Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to Victoria.

Spacious, clean and comfortable. Our suite was called a "King French." King-sized bed; French doors separate the bedroom from the rest of the suite. Nice balcony.

Work space fit my needs well. WiFi was free, but pretty spotty - fine for browsing, but not reliable enough for a webcam meeting (wasn't a problem because I made a hotspot with my cell).
Staff was very nice and professional. Shuttle driver "Dean" was great.

Happy with our stay there. Plan to go back sometime in the next few months.

Centrally located but far enough from Douglas to be quiet. Friendly, helpful staff. Full services including pool, hot tub and exercise area. A beautiful view from the restaurant. Didn't have a chance to go to Clives because it was so busy, but I look forward to that next time. A nice feature that you don't have to walk through the lobby to access the pool and exercise area. Recently renovated and well done. Will definitely stay again

Great rooms, friendly, welcoming, great staff! From Marla and Kristyna at the front desk to the bar staff in Clives, it's wonderful to feel so welcome! They even remembered me when I went back a 2nd time. I've been back again since and I highly recommend the hotel. Great location, Lovely linens and nice rooms. It's just a great place!

Very comfortable bed: I slept well. Quality linens: their towels are nice, soft and a good thickness. I like towels that are absorbent and not starchy.
The staff was very friendly, especially the full time housekeeper that was assigned to my room.
The furniture is a bit old. The mattress and TV are definitely much newer - which is more important.
The only thing that I disliked about the room was that I found it a bit warm. Even if I lowered the thermostat to 20 C, the room temperature was on average 22 C. Likely because my room was on the 8th floor and Victoria was going through an unusually cold spell.
When I reserved my room, it got upgraded at no extra charge because of the lack of availability of standard rooms. So I got a room that was a junior suite with a bedroom and a combination living room/kitchenette. I wished they had a clock in the living area. They only had an alarm clock next to the bed. Other thing to note is the hot tub is not as hot as I would have liked it.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed for 2 nights on business. Room was spotless, absolutely impeccable, extremely comfortable.

It's evident that this hotel is well maintained and that every staff member cares about what they are doing.

Was on a corporate rate, so my room was on a lower floor and had a view of the parking lot, which was not a cause for concern because I probably otherwise would have not gotten outside to tour around the harbour, etc...

Will definitely stay here again.
