My girlfriend and I stayed at the English Inn last weekend and we had a great, great time. Perfect proximity to downtown and the hotels rooms were so nice that we couldn't wait to get back and relax. Highly recommended hotel, one which we will be returning to.

We had a family w/e stay at the English Inn. It exceeded our expectations. The initial walk down the narrow corridor was misleading as the room was very spacious and easily accommodated 2 adults and 2 children (8 and 11yo). It was very clean and had a great view. The hotel and grounds were impressive and we enjoyed a fun picnic lunch on the grounds one day. The front desk staff were happy to answer our questions about the hotel and surroundings and made our stay as pleasant as possible. It was a quick drive into the tourist zone and it was nice to stay somewhere where the crowds thin out. We plan to stay at the English Inn on future trips to Victoria.

First impressions, the old estate is tucked away in a residential area, so you wouldn't even know it was there if you weren't looking for it. It felt like we had taken a step back in time. If you enjoy old wood and stone houses with modern touches, you will most certainly enjoy the workings of this inn.
Reception, checking in was easy we arrived at 5 p.m. got our key and went straight to our
room. Although I had sent an e-mail to them regaurding a request for a fireplace or a four poster bed like what was shown on their website, that they did not recieve. Checking out was a little rushed. We had asked the night before for a later check-out and the night receptionist said we could stay until 12. The next morning we got back from having breakfast at 10:30 when we were approached by the day time receptionist who politley told us that they had a bride going into our room and would like us out as soon as possible. This made me feel more as an inconvience then a guest. I complained about the receptionists mannerisms and got an e-mail appolagy from the receptionist that day.
The room, was fairly clean (although the shower curtain had mold at the bottom) and very large. I was disappointed that there was no fireplace or four post bed in the room. The room did have an early 19th century feel to it like the rest of the house but with modern upgrades such as faucets, a microwave and fridge. The sun room was delightful and the bed was heavenly. They accually use real sheets!
Breakfast was a disappointment. It was a continental breakfast. We had checked the menu the night before to make sure they had a dairy substitute, such as soy. On the menu they did however at breakfast they did not. Granted we came down at 9:30 for breakfast and it was done at 10:00 but they had run out of granola, soy milk, banana's and yogurt. We went out for breakfast.
The gardens were spectacular, it would be a great place for a wedding or event.

A very nice change of pace from the regular branded hotel fare. Distinctive English flavour in the architecture, gardens, and decor (no surprise given the name). Great value for money. Enjoyed a nice, romantic walk thru waterfront park/seawall one block from property. Certainly would recommend to friends.

The English Inn is one of the nicest hotels / establishments I have ever been in. From the lobby area, to the lounge, to the rooms, to the numerous gardens and fields on the property..Absolutely beautiful!
