Exceptional 10.0
10/10 perfect in everything.
Had a wonderful time. Far exceeded our expectations. Front desk staff very friendly lots of useful information. Christian who checked us in is a delightful last a staff member to keep and acknowledge her excellent customer service. Only negative is no lift but we knew prior to booking and the type of building probably wouldn't accommodate a lift. Perfect hotel for 6 old weary Australian travellers.

Great location and lovely hotel

What a great little hotel. The property dates back to late 40's early 50's so has character but with all the mod cons being recently renovated. Includes fully functional kitchenette ( ideal for longer stays) and we had a 1 bedroom suite...very spacious. There is on-site laundry facilities and afternoon tea in lobby every day. Easy walk to all major attractions, museums, shops ( supermarket 10 min walk) buses, ferries and bus terminal if coming from Vancouver. Good wifi in room. Only problem we had the service room sigh blew off door so room was not serviced but immediately attended to when we notified reception. Staff were friendly and helpful....Josh was great.

Standby in Victoria
Excellent location, roomy suites. We've stayed here several times before Good service. Great value for the money. The property is older, of course, and could use a bit of sprucing up and a bit more care to cleaning, but generally excellent. Suggest booking space on the upper floors as on the main floor, there is a good deal of noise from people above.

Charming hotel that offers great value
This was our third stay at the Helms Inn and as usual, we enjoyed this charming, clean, and centrally located hotel. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Our room which faces the street and is right beside the reception desk was a little noisier than our previous ones but it was not a major problem. This hotel is a great value especially in the low season. We will certainly return.
