Helms Inn, Victoria, Canada
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.

Comfortable stay.
One night. Can park outside the Hotel for a short period of time to unload your car. Parking is at the rear of the Hotel. Reception on arrival was excellent. Very friendly and City maps were provided. The man at reception marked the Hotel on the map as well as the location of recommended restaurants. The highly recommended restaurant was excellent. Good location. Room was large and clean and, the shower was great. The bed was comfortable. There was a little noise from the suite above us in the early hours of the morning. The room was large and clean Continental breakfast was good. Internet was good. Check out was fine. Good location and we would recommend.
