“Wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

We arrived from washington on Boxing Day for a 3 night stay at the Magnolia. We found the location to be perfect for heading out on foot to hit all the best places. Dining, cafes, shopping and site seeing all within walking distance. The staff at magnolia were wonderful and very helpful. Quick with an umbrella to lend and advise on places to check out.

Our room, 409, was located on the backside of the hotel with views of uptown buildings. The room was very clean and tastefully decorated. Beds were a bit hard for our taste. Aveda soaps and lotions were a nice touch. Every time we came thru the lobby we were treated to a warm welcome by the staff and fresh apple cider and cookies in the lobby.
The Magnolia is a beautiful boutique hotel that we would definitely stay at again. Hopefully the redecorating they are currently doing will include softer beds.

From the moment we arrived at the Magnolia, everything was perfect! Easy-going, friendly service, a beautiful, spacious room with high ceilings and views of the bay and city, and a great on-site spa where I had a really brilliant massage (as a massage therapist myself ... I am a tough critic). The location is perfect, right in downtown, but not noisy. The restaurant is good and not overpriced. We had complimentary breakfasts and there was always a good selection. I highly recommend the restaurant across the road, Bon Rouge, we dined there twice it was so good! Victoria is a friendly, picturesque city, great sightseeing & shopping, whalewatching and the cycling on Vancouver Island is great too!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a bay view suite - it's so worth it!

A warm welcome on a cold winters day! Reception was extremely helpful with a personal and friendly welcome, and the offer of hot apple cider on arrival much appreciated! Rooms beautifully appointed, super-clean and comfortable. Centrally located, it was easy to do the Victoria central sites on foot.
If driving in, be warned that parking is somewhat challenging, and as we were from out of country, we were surprised at having to pay for parking.

We have stayed at the Magnolia several times. Their rates at Christmas time were most attractive including, as usual, the self-serve, (with server attention as requested or required), good variety, continental breakfast and, this time, no-charge valet parking. In addition, on the 26th of December, there was a self-serve afternoon provision of food and drink similar to the fare at breakfast. On the 27th of December - we did stay two nights, the 25th and the 26th, there was to be a wine and cheese reception for guests. We could not attend that.

Room Tip: We were given an upgrade to a top floor corner room. Downtown Victoria is fairly quite in any case s...

We stayed at the hotel for one night. The staff were friendly and efficient. The breakfast was very enjoyable. It was close to a lot of the places to see. The hotel was clean and comfortable and we would definately return.

I have stayed in this hotel once in the winter for three nights and it was great experience. The staff were great and helpful, the lobby was warm and showed hospitality by free hot chocolate, apple cinnamon and more. What I like it in this hotel more is room service, the cleaned each room twice a day, they put a chocolate and a nice message each time. The only con in that the hotel does not have sauna, stem room or swimming pool; however, they give you free pass to close gym where you can get this. I got the booking from Price line so the rate was almost half.

We had a corner suite on 6th floor which had a fireplace. Both elevators were large, and quickly available at all times. Great location -- easy access to stores and eating places. Heating equipment was very quiet which is rare.
