This hotel is rundown. Everything is dated and grimy. The AC was extremely noisy, so much so that we couldn't even use it. The fridge and tv also made a lot of noise, which was annoying. I would never stay here again. I felt dirty walking on the carpets and sitting on the couch. You will be disappointed if you stay here. The shower had horrible water pressure, and the bed was uncomfortable. The pillows were lumpy and the bedding was abrasive and rough feeling. It was the worst hotel that I have ever stayed in.

I stayed here one night as part of a tour and that was enough.

The room was basic; the shower kept on going from hot to cold and there had been some very poor patching down to the tiles in the bathroom.

This was the second last day of my tour and I was very disappointed. Victoria is so lovely; this hotel is not.

This was not a good experience for neither my husband or myself. Our room was small, smelly, the bathroom tiny, with a very bad smelling shower curtain. The rug was very grimy and the bed gave me such a sore back that I could barely walk the next day.
A word to the owners...smarten up!! This is beautiful Victoria and you need to make your clients want to come back. We are never going back. As a matter of fact, left the hotel early just to get out of there when we had hours to spend relaxing.

We chose this hotel because it had a full kitchen - however the dishes looked like they had been haphazardly replaced over the years and the whole kitchen area was very dated. There was a strange smell in the hallways and one of our bedside lamps didn't work. We brought this to the attention of the staff and the lamp was repaired during our stay. The airconditioner unit, while effective, was very loud!
The pool area was very confusing with two change rooms, neither one labelled for "Men" or "Women". Saunas are in the change rooms (??).
The location of this hotel, while definitely not in the city centre as advertised was in a good location - about 10 minutes drive from downtown. Close enough yet far enough away for us!
We were very happy with the service we received from the staff!
