“Great Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Loved our stay at the Inn. Great building, quaint, clean with "old world charm". Heather and staff were very helpful and friendly! I would visit the Inn when back in Victoria. I enjoyed the quietness and quaintness of the building.

We enjoyed our stay, the room was very nice and clean, the breakfast provided was very good and I loved the location. The exterior of the building looks like it needs some attention but you forget about that once inside, the interior is a great example of quality 100 old architecture. Old varnished wood, narrow stairs, big beams and small doors throughout. We had a very quiet stay in one of the Garden rooms and am glad we purchased our stay online for about half the walk in price. The staff we did see or talk to were great. Too far from downtown Victoria to walk but lots of things in Esquimalt are not too far away. Would definitely stay there again.

My brother and sister in law were married at the English Inn in 2009. They are now expecting their first baby so I thought what a great location to celebrate this new life. I contacted the English Inn to ask about renting the Rosemeade Dining Room for a baby shower. They were able to accommodate our request at an incredibly affordable cost. The staff that helped us at the English Inn, Zoe, Cody and their manager, Heather were incredible. The atmosphere was perfect and Heather and Cody made me feel like the event was their top priority. They were courteous and patient with me and helped me pull off the baby shower of the mother to be's dreams. I was super impressed and so were the guests. I would highly recommend the English Inn for those looking to take their event to the next level. Thanks a million Heather and Cody, you were both so helpful!

My husband and I stay at the English Inn. It was our anniversary and it was the perfect choice. We loved the grounds, it was elegant and inviting. The Inn is so charming as are the rooms. Such a great place!!!!

We found this Inn over the internet. It sounded very interesting so we book our last night of our visit to Vancouver Island and we loved it. The setting is that of an old English Manor in the time of Shakespeare's England. Our room was on the third floor and we could see the ships in Victoria's Harbour The attendants at the front desk were most cordial and even help in taking our luggage up to our room. The entire Inn was very clean. The breakfast was continental but the croissants were home baked and delicious. The staff Help in calling the Washington Ferries to book a space from Sydney to AnnaCortes. It was the right thing to do otherwise we would have stayed on the dock.

Room Tip: Any room is good but the back room on the third floor gives you a view of the Harbor.

I surprised my wife for our 10 year anniversary with renewing our vows at the English Inn. I worked with Heather who was absolutely amazing! The property was stunning and Heather went above and beyond setting up candles for the ceremony. After the ceremony we went into the hotel and the girls put music on for us so we could have a wedding dance. All and all it was an experience that my wife and I will remember for the rest of our lives. We didn't actually stay at the hotel (I came up with the surprise after we had reservations somewhere else) but it will be first on our list when we return to Victoria. Talk to Heather and she will make your stay perfect!
