We stayed in a deluxe room in the older section of this hotel in October 2004. We were very pleased with our room. It had a comfortable bed with a separate living/dining room. We also had a wonderful double jacuzzi in the bedroom with a fireplace in the living room.

The only thing was that it was on the ground floor overlooking the beach . . . and the parking lot. Therefore we couldn't leave our drapes open while using the jacuzzi tub. Also the included breakfast wasn't very good - just packaged (very sweet) muffins, drink boxes and fruit.

It is in a good location right on the waterfront walkway and close to restaurants and shops and the staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all we enjoyed our stay. We will probably return.

I stayed at the hotel for one night. Our room was lovely and clean, we had an oceanfront room that consisted of a jacuzzi, fireplace, kitchen, bath robes, feather duvet comforter and a really confortable mattress!! The room and decor was tastefully decorated. Having yogurt and juice was also a very nice touch! One night was not enough....I wish I had stayed longer! Staff was very friendly and helpfull! In the morning a basket was left at the door with muffins, newspaper and fruit. By far this is my favorite hotel. Great location and close to all ammenities. Planning to stay there again in the future!

Stayed one night in a standard "ocean view" room and glad we didn't stay longer. Felt like I was staying at a highway motel. The view consisted of a patio looking out into a parking lot with the ocean in the distance. The pictures as advertised were of the deluxe rooms which were, unfortunately, all booked. The walls were so thin we could hear conversations in the next room and the people upstairs sounded like they were going to come through the ceiling. The beds were soft and uncomfortable and the linens were very average. We were delivered "breakfast" outside of our door at 7am....2 muffins, 2 dodgy looking apples, 2 bananas, and 2 juice boxes.
We paid only $80 for the room which seems a bit much for the awful experience. Don't bother staying here.
Last year we stayed at the Shoal Harbour Inn which was far nicer.

Stayed: April 2005

The updated renovations are wonderful. My wife and I stayed in the suite for two nights. One of the best. We love the town of Sidney and surrounding area including Victoria. Well done Waterfront Hotel in Sidney. We cannot wait to get back.
