If you are looking for luxury...this is not the hotel for you. It is a basic, 3 star which is showing its age..it is tired and has a musty odour that you would come to expect in an older building in the damp Victoria climate. Very creaky and water pipe sounds. The estate room was an adquate size, but an odd shape and had a run down look and feel to it. However, it had a good sized balcony with nice chairs that looked over the grounds. The bathroom was a little more up to date and quite adequate (lack of counter space due pedestal sink was a bit awkward). No bathrobes!!, and small things such a stiring sticks/spoons for the in-room instant coffee and tea missing -- but did have ironing board, and electric fan. Lots of umbrellas to borrow in the lobby. Overall, it was OK. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Good coffee, tea, yogurt, fruit and croissants were available to guests in the lobby in the morning as part of the room cost– which was nice. The grounds are quite beautiful and the inn is located in a quiet residential area (I think you need a car to get around, as the bus stop to downtown Victoria would be quite the hike). Parking is free and ample. Keeping the price point in mind...you cannot complain about what you get...
