“Overall experience was Fantastic.”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

The hotel staff was exceptional. Very friendly and willing to go the extra mile without being asked. The hotel and amenities were excellent. Clean and up to date. The restaurant at the hotel was absolutely fabulous. Great service and the food was great. Especially the seafood and dish presentation.

Have stayed here three times. We are from Ontario so not frequent visitors. We had a harbour view which was fantastic. Lots of activity on the water including whales and seals. As hotels go in Victoria the prices are reasonable. Walking distance to a small mall and other shopping. Blue Crab restaurant on site and voted as one of the best. If you don't like to walk to downtown you can take their little water taxi they nickname floating bathtubs. Will stay there again on our next visit. Whale watching business right there on the dock.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up have great view of harbour.

Dear Habsfan51,

It was a pleasure to welcome you back this past summer. The Harbour Ferries are a fantastic way to get around downtown Victoria in the summer and are a great alternative to our complimentary shuttle service. Did you know the Harbour Ferries offer a Victoria pub crawl? One of the stops is right here at the Blue Crab Seafood House!

We look forward to the opportunity to be of service on your next visit.

An overall nice hotel with a great location and amenities. What makes staying there so nice is the positive energy of the front desk team who are the friendliest people in Victoria. Hard working Alerus, Julia, Kirby, Misha and Justin made my stay special. They cater to your every request and have a brilliant shuttle service. Definitely my Victoria destination, having stayed with them on 3 different occasions now.

Dear divebomber,

It was a pleasure welcoming you back to Victoria, and the Coast Victoria Harbourside. I agree completely - our Front Desk team is a pleasure to work with on a daily basis, and their energy and enthusiasm is apparent! I was also pleased to note that our complimentary shuttle service worked well for you.

I trust we will have the opportunity to be of service in the future, and we look forward to your return.

Originally booked as two night stay on Hotwire turned into five nights because of medical issue. At check-in were advised of reasonably priced upgrade to a room with a better view. Chose the upgrade and glad we did. Not that the other views would have been bad, but this 8th floor view of the waterfront was terrific. Even in the rain. Fog was another matter but not much you can do about that. Always something to see on the water- small vessels, ferries, float planes, seals or people out for a walk. Small balcony (standing only) was nice touch as well as opening windows and a dedicated room only AC/heating unit which was easily controlled.
Very comfortable bed, friendly staff, free underground parking. Pet friendly at a easonable ($20) cost. Good fish and chips at the lounge which also has a grat view.
Definitely will stay here again.

Room Tip: pay extra for a waterfront view

Dear John,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience about your recent stay. Although you don't have the opportunity to chose your hotel on Hotwire, we were glad you chose to extend your stay with us. I was sorry to hear that it was a medical reason that kept you in town for longer than expected but it sounds like you were able to take full advantage of the extra time spent here.

We look forward to welcoming you back and of being of service in the future.

Upon arrival Aleris checked us in and we received a complimentary upgrade to a beautiful harbourview room. We loved the room because it had all of the amenities one needs on new Years; wine glasses, cork screw ect... Before dinner at the Blue Crab we went to my in-laws rooms for appy's, which was a spacious room for our large group. Dinner and dancing at the blue crab was fantastic! The food was delicious and the band rocked all night. Our room was quiet after all of the celebrations. Breakfast was so good. Plus our vehicle was oversized and they had parking on property to accommodate. Overall a fantastic stay and I will be back again.

Dear C D,

Thank you for your recent stay at the Coast Victoria Harbourside and for sharing your experience with other TripAdvisor users. Aleris was particularly happy to see your note.

Our New Years Eve Gala event was a hit this year! If you don't already have plans for Valentine's Day, the Blue Crab Seafood House is planning another special event. Join us for an amazing dinner with The Blue Crab's famous view and delectable sharing plates. Stay late for the chance to dine and dance the night away with live music by local jazz singer Diane Pancel from 8pm until 11pm. Many guests are booking in conjunction with our Romance Package which includes sparkling wine, chocolate covered berries and breakfast in bed. Hope you can make it.

Regards,

The friendly staff here bends over backwards to make sure that your stay is the absolute best that it can be. Not only did they help my partner and I plan out dinners and activities, they also drove us to the places we wanted to go downtown so we didn't have to walk there (10-15 min walk) in the rain.

The ladies at the front desk knew that it was our 10-year anniversary. When we came back to our room there was a plate of chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us on the table!

The rooms are comfortable, and offer nice views of the Harbor.

The Hotel is located in a quiet residential area that is a short, flat walk to downtown.

Coast Victoria Harbourside is a great value. I will be staying here again in the future.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the water side so you can watch the sea planes and boats come in.

Dear Nick,

Thank you for your recent visit and for taking the time to share your experience. Always nice to have one of our guests post their first TripAdvisor review about how much they enjoyed their stay!

I note you and your partner were able to take full advantage of our complimentary shuttle. Available on demand everyday from 7:30am - 11:00pm, it's always a popular amenity whether it's a drop off to a business meeting or a pick up from a tourist attraction, a local restaurant, the Coho ferry, Victoria Clipper, Harbour Air, bus depot...

We look forward to being of service on your next visit to Victoria.

A short walk or run to James Bay on the one side and the inner harbour on the other. I have stayed here many times and find it comfortable each time with generally consistently good service. About a 20 minute walk on the seawall to the Empress, or there is a free shuttle within the city centre area. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. The pool is nice, with an indoor/outdoor swim area and decent hot tub. However, the fitness room leaves much to be desired. There is one universal weight machine, which generally has a broken component and isn't that great anyway. The free weights are limited and there are only a very few cardio machines. The restaurant is decent and has a great view.

Dear Silvabay,

Thank you very much for your kind comments and your continued loyalty. Agree wholeheartedly with your assessment of our location - walking distance to downtown, without being right in the midst of the hustle and bustle. Sorry to hear that the fitness room isn't meeting your needs. I will ensure that our maintenance team has a look at the universal weight machine and have made a note of your comments regarding the provided equipment for our next review of the facility.

We look forward to being of service on your next visit to Victoria.
