A Travelling Salesperson's Perspective
I should have checked this one detail (and for everyone else, two details) before I booked this hotel, but I didn't... and everything still worked out amazingly! I'm a travelling salesperson who brings expensive equipment with me on my trips, and I need to be able to store it in a secure location when I am staying at a hotel. As a back-up, I store my equipment in my room. When I pulled up to the historical hotel, I looked at the exterior staircase that led one floor up to the lobby, and immediately imagined having to physically drag up all my equipment up all those stairs all by myself, just to take it all back down the next day. I realized I had made a big booking mistake by not finding out if a hotel has elevator service before I booked the room. But everything worked out! This hotel has a ground-level storage facility that I was able to utilize, and all I had to do was carry my personal bags up a couple floors. What a relief! But, for those of you with mobility issues, there is no elevator! Call ahead to make sure you can be properly accommodated! The next important detail I overlooked was that the hotel does not have air conditioning. Fortunately, I stayed on a warm summer night and was comfortable with the gentle breeze from the open window, and the clip-clop sound of horse hooves pulling tourist-filled carriages through the neighbourhood. The staff is amazing! Great service. Charming place.

Well appointed hotel, close to the beautiful harbour of Victoria. The on site restaurant and bar were great value. I must say a big thank you to all the staff and especially Hedi, who's local knowledge was a great help to getting around Victoria. Can recommend a stay here.
