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.

Very good 8.0
Very handy for downtown and good value for money. Would have been nice to have had coffee available all day
Sally, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
A wonderful hotel right from the past - they have kept as much of the original decor as possible and it makes the hotel different and quirky. Good location with an easy walk into the bay area
Robin, gb2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic find! Highly recommended!
Wow! This place is amazing. We really weren’t expecting much other than a place to sleep walking distance to town. What we got was a 2 bedroom cottage... with living room and kitchen and bathroom. Specifically, the “White House”. It was super comfortable and recently renovated. We loved it! Definitely would book again. The Inn, and the cottage, are walking distance to the waterfront and Parliament building. Once we parked our car in the driveway, we didn’t move it until we left.

Excellent room for the money!
Beautiful classic hotel. Hardwoods and stairs. Bathroom was modern and well appointed. Room large and bed comfortable. Pub and dining room downstairs were a nice addition.
