Great Hotel
Great hotel, fantastic location and really nice condo style rooms fully equipped with a kitchen with everything you need to prepare anything from a quick breakfast to a full dinner. We would highly recommend this to anybody traveling to Victoria who wants to be close to downtown and the harbour.

Professional and polite!
This was a professionally run business. The front staff were pleasant and we were especially pleased with the service and politeness of the staff that brought up towels and dish soap. Clean, comfortable and a wonderful view. Thank you!
ca6 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
A great spot to base your Victoria vacation.
We stayed at The Oswego Hotel for four days while visiting family in Victoria. The location on the edge of James Bay is perfect for walking to many of the popular tourist spots as well as lots of dining options. We didn't cook in the suite but the kitchen was well equipped. There are two grocery stores within a 10 minute walk, as well as great diners and coffee spots for breakfast. Two recurring themes in other reviews are the noisy seagulls and the fact that there is no A/C. Seagulls are EVERYWHERE in Victoria and the issue is not specific to The Oswego. Buildings, sidewalks, and rooftops are covered in white splatters and you can hear the gulls all day. This may be more of a summer issue but its definitely all over the harbour area. No A/C - we had ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living area, as well as a couple of portable fans. Our rooms faced south and west, so likely the hottest in the building. As long as we kept the blinds closed and windows open when we were out during the day, the room temperature was fine. It was low 20s (Celsius) outside so maybe a bit less comfortable if its in the 30s (unusual in Victoria) and you are used to air conditioning. It certainly would stop us from staying again.
