Fabulous 8.6 From 766 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Lovely, serene haven in a residential zone
The James Bay was a lovely experience in every way. This historic hotel feels like a step back in time, in the best of ways: friendly staff, homey, well-appointed common areas including a second-floor balcony for sipping tea or taking in the flowers and trees viewable from the property, and a decent if not spectacular restaurant and pub on the premises. The morning coffee/tea in the lobby was much appreciated. Rooms are basic but very comfortable. I had a thoroughly positive experience here, and send special thanks to the desk staff member, Hegy, who went out of his way to help me figure out transit across the city. The neighborhood around the hotel is mostly residential, which I really enjoyed. At the same time, a 15-minute walk takes you to the harbor, the Royal Museum of BC, and other attractions. I took a bus every day to U Vic and enjoyed the walk to the bus stop.

James Bay - would stay again
Old hotel, nicely maintained and conveniently placed for Victoria attractions. Room a bit small, but clean and well presented. Good restaurant and bar downstairs, and an easy walk into downtown. Staff were friendly, although the lady who checked us in didn't seem to be having a very good day.

Overnight getaway
From the first moment we were greeted on check-in until we checked out after breakfast our stay was wonderful!! Friendly knowledgeable staff, great dining in both the pub and restaurant.
Karen, ca1 night trip
Very good 8.0
This is sn easy recommendation
I would recommend this place without hesitation. Its charm alone is something to behold. Reception is fantastic and equally as charming. Can't wait to go back with my fiance. The only downside was we couldn't stay longer.
