Usually use this hotel when in Victoria; great location for Oak Bay, but worth considering for downtown too. It has the upscale elegance and service that the four-star chains have lost. I usually get up early, put on the warm gown they provide, and walk down through the gardens to the waterside exercise room, then on to the warm-water pool and then to one of the hot-tubs. Perfect start to the day. Always look forward to the visit.

If you are looking for something other than the inner harbor experience, this is it. Great customer service, pools and food. Good size rooms with great amenities. An overall relaxing weekend using the spa, pools, hot tubs with a great vibe.

If you have not stayed at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel you are missing out. Treat yourself as it is truly an amazing experience. We walked to downtown which was a lovely stroll and a great way to see the neighbourhood. We were out for the Oak Bay Half Marathon and will continue to come out for the rate just to be able to have the luxury of staying at the hotel.

This review should have been 5 stars, and honestly, if I could I would give it 4.5 stars. We stayed there (room 511) the evening of June 4th to celebrate our anniversary. My husband surprised me with a trip to Victoria via the Clipper and he decided on our lodgings so I had no idea what to expect. As soon as we pulled up I was in awe. The grounds, the facility is amazing! And then you get that amazing view upon entering the building. Just perfect. Our room was just as nice with a wonderful vie... Read more

We booked a 2 night stay at this property and were so pleased. The inside and outside are lovely and the setting of the mineral pools over the bay is a real treat. Our room was beautifully appointed and spacious with a partial ocean view. Ocean views are available from the restaurants, pools and common areas - designed to take in the vistas. This is a luxury property without any stuffiness. The bellman will take you downtown and back for a $15 fee - same as a cab fee, but nicer vehicle. The fro... Read more

Peaceful location. Staff is obliging and friendly. I remarked often how it does not feel like a hotel but a post condominium complex. Spectacular ocean front property, impeccably groomed pool area. Never an overcrowded feeling in the hotel but it was full at the time. Excellent dining in the Pub and Dining room.

Our visit to the hotel was met with much anticipation! We were so excited to be returning. Once we got settled we noticed that things were a little "off". There were fees for things that previously complimentary. Housekeeping services were so different that there was no comparison to past stays. We had to request for our shower drain issue to be addressed for two days before it was resolved. The mineral pools were no longer a quiet sanctuary. There were kids jumping, diving, and screaming...

Oak bay is such a beautiful location. The views from the spa/pools are unbelievable. Go after 10pm or before 8am if you'd like it to be quieter. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Food in the dining room was okay, not amazing, but this did not deter from the quality of the our stay. Absolutely coming back to the Oak Bay Beach hotel for our next getaway.

This hotel is not at all as advertised! The service was substandard in many ways. There was no beach front to explore on as mentioned in the ads, there were only a few rocks on an area in front of the pool. The natural mineral pools on the beach front were only in the SPA and it required an expensive spa appointment to even see them.The maid service left a lot to be desired and the phone service was even worse.

We love this hotel! It's so gorgeous. Updated yet retains an old-world, Victorian charm. Oak Bay is a lovely part of Victoria, albeit a wee bit out of town. Cab ride from the airport was very expensive ($60 plus) & it's a bit of a jaunt to walk anywhere except maybe Oak Bay Village, which is quaint. Great spot to go for a nice run/walk along Willows Beach and through the lovely neighbourhoods. Excellent spa and the hot pools over looking the ocean are divine.

After a couple of not so great days in Vancouver we needed a positive when we returned to the island and choose this hotel. What a lovely treat to end off with before heading home up island. The staff were so gracious and understood our needs for a little break and bent over backwards to accommodate us. The room was beautiful, the view magnificent, and all this on short notice.

The hotel is located close to Oak Bay Village with the charming Oak Bay Marina (meet the locals there) and some nice shops and restaurants. The rooms are good, the view is stunning but best of all are the pools close to the pacific. The only drawback is the distance from downtown, you will have to take a taxi (the hotel shuttle costs the same) or the bus or bicycle to get there.

This was the perfect place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The service in both the hotel and the restaurants was excellent. The room was quiet, well-appointed, comfortable, and clean enough to satisfy even customers with the highest of standards. Located on the bay near a marina, the hotel is in a gorgeous neighborhood setting. Our only regret is that we didn't call early enough to reserve a room with a full bay view. We definitely plan to return!

The hotel offers comfortable, upscale accommodations in a perhaps too grand renovation that has lost much of the place's original charm, but the wait for service during breakfast was the longest I have ever experienced in a long life, and my scrambled eggs, when eventually they did arrive, seemed to have been waiting around for longer even than I had.

Great location (Oak Bay - do spend some time in the small town area), great (stunningly picturesque in my opinion) view, great pools, very nice rooms (with refrigerator/micro-kitchenette). Be aware of a beach walk within a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel. Kayak rentals also available at the nearby marina. I feel you get a lot more for your money here than anywhere else.

We did not make it to the pools but they looked relaxing since they were heated and the temp outside was only around 70. The only thing I could complain about is the check in time, it was 4:00 pm. Later than normal and we were beat after walking around town all day but we were not able to get ... Read more

My wife and I visited the Oak Bay Beach Hotel for several days at the end of August. We have been several times in the past, but not for a couple of years and we were curious to see if it was still as good as we experienced on previous visits. It was. From the greeting by the concierge to the front desk staff our first impressions were outstanding. Likewise, ourroom was in pristine condition and everyone we met during our three-night stay were professional and warm towards us. On this visit... Read more

During my recent stay to Victoria, I stayed at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel. It only takes about 15 minutes to get to downtown from here as it is located in the Oak Bay area. I prefer to stay by the water during vacations and Oak Bay Beach Hotel was right on the ocean. I really enjoyed my stay at Oak Bay Beach Hotel. It was full of amenities and had a very central location. I liked not being right in downtown and did not feel far from it. The ocean views were incredible and the hotel is situated amon... Read more

Our family was visiting cousins in Victoria and they recommended this hotel, which is a 7 minute drive out of downtown Victoria. The hotel is located on land jutting out into the water and all views are beautiful. The heated pool permits you to float around observing the sea. Very convenient bar menu and food service, abutting their spa. We needed a room change and the staff was gracious and accommodating. Parking easy. We dined there for dinner and breakfast and enjoyed it. Would certainly ret... Read more

My husband and I spent a week at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel and had wonderful time. First and foremost, the staff, to a person was great. The concierges, Dylan and Brandon were exceptional. They really made our stay special from getting last minute reservations for dinner, arranging for transportation throughout our stay to making suggestions on activities on Victoria island. Kate's Cafe was cozy for breakfast and The Snug was great for lunch, a beer and appetizer or dinner. A pub atmosphere ... Read more

Wow! The new Oak Bay Beach hotel surpassed all my expectations. You cannot beat the ocean front location and the spacious and well appointed rooms. The onsite restaurants were great and the front desk staff were very professional and helpful. Lots of parks, beaches, and shopping within a short walking distance.

It is amazing that this hotel is Trip Advisor's #3 hotel in Victoria. It makes me curious what the two higher-rated hotels in the city are like. The mineral pool and hot tubs were great. Warm, relaxing, and not very crowded in mid September. Open until midnight. One night we had them all to ourselves for about an hour. A sauna is available, too. The spa is co-located but my wife and I didn't use any spa service. Public beach access is co-located as well. We had nothing less than excellent serv... Read more

We had a wonderful stay at Oak Bay Beach Hotel with family in August. The views, the outdoor pool, the food and the service were all top notch. The rooms were very nice and extremely quiet for a Hotel by the Ocean and in a great city such as Victoria. We cannot wait to go back!

5 star in every way! From the lovely lady who checked us in at the front desk to the wonderful pool bar staff, we were taken. The hotel is impeccably maintained and we loved being in the beautiful Oak Bay neighborhood vs staying downtown in the touristy area.

Check in was quick and easy, paid for the top room, deluxe ocean view room. Most expensive room I have ever booked anywhere but it was a well needed and deserved getaway and my friends birthday.. So here were our positives.... spectacular view, great beds, a nice Happy Birthday surprise when we arrived and one of the nicest pools we have ever swam in!! Too many negatives sadly.. when we walked in the room and as we looked around we found a used water bottle in the bathroom, no coffee, many missi... Read more

I had booked a room for my husband's birthday, we were impressed with the room and the dinner at the Snug was lovely. Unfortunately a few hours in to our stay, we had a family emergency that required us to leave immediately. The kindness that the staff showed was above and beyond anything we could have expected. We will absolutely be returning and telling people about this beautiful hotel.

A very confortable hotel with perfect equipments and an outstanding view of the bay; Hot pools overlooking the bay,spa. But clearly the place lacks a management who would care. It could be the perfect place for a few days stay . It only needs proper management.

We stayed at the Oak aBay Beach Hotel 25 years ago for our honeymoon and recently for our 25th wedding anniversary. The Hotel has changed a lot but for the better. The feeling of beautiful opulence is still there with the most amazing views of the water! The staff is wonderful, very polite and helpful. The only improvements I'd make are very small attention to detail stuff. Like a hand mirror or rotating make up mirror in the master bath of the penthouse suite would be nice as well as a ...

This hotel and the area near it is fantastic. There is so much to do. Everything is close by and easy to get to. Very peaceful and relaxing vacation due to this. The hotel itself is great. It has all the amenities you need and want without dealing with aggravations of a giant hotel (and giant hotel chains). The pub is good for both a casual beer or drink situation as well as a nice meal with your significant other. The spa and views are incredible. The service is ridiculously good. Fo... Read more

Situated about 10-15 mins from downtown Victoria overlooking Oak Bay, this is a beautiful hotel. Our room was very spacious with a huge bathroom, small balcony and a supremely comfortable bed. It has the option of a formal dining area or pub style dining with a more relaxed feel. There is bicycle high available and the hop on hop off bus can be hailed across the road from the hotel. All the staff were fabulous and the help they provide my husband was fantastic. Car parking was free as well as Wi... Read more

This was an amazing hotel. The pool was warm and the spa was hot. Rooms were clean, bed comfortable and had a kitchenette. I would splurge next time on a room with ocean view. It was nice that the front desk was able to exchange American currency at no charge. The hotel also has car service. We were able to use car service to take us to dinner.

We recently stayed in a garden suite with our dog and had a fabulous stay. Beautiful, quiet room, lovely gardens, beautiful bathroom with a deep tub, fireplace in e main room, and very comfy beds.

I usually stay at the Empress in the middle of Victoria, but had heard good things about the Oak Bay Beach Hotel. It is do wonderful that I will make this an extra stop any time I visit Vancouver Island. You would need to use the free shuttle to downtown, but the hotel and the restaurants by the marina are reason to stay put. The mineral pool beside the ocean are fantastic. No extra fees. The pillows and duvet are the most comfortable ever. I booked a queen room Ruth a courtyard view but was up... Read more

We stayed here last week for one night. It was amazing. The only bad thing I could say was that during our stay, there was a HUGE storm that was happening. One of the branches snapped on a power line and there was a blackout for about an hour or two. During this time, understandably, we were not allowed to go into the hot pools. Boo. Once the storm stopped and the power was up and running, I went to the pools. It was unreal being out there watching the waves crash and the powerful wind gusts. ... Read more

We were married at the old Oak Bay Beach Hotel 34 years ago, and over the years have returned many times to celebrate. For our anniversary this year we decided it was time to check out the new facility, as in our minds nothing would top the great memories we had of the old hotel and it's great location. We booked a king boutique suite with a residential view. It was such a nice comfortable, spacious room with so many amenities, the fact that we didn't have an ocean view didn't bother us too much...
