Breathtaking views of the ocean

Negative Reviews

Dated rooms

Past guests have mentioned that the rooms are a little dated at Oak Bay Beach. These guests felt as though given the price of a room at the property, that the rooms could be renovated with more up to date furnishings.

Crowded pool area

Guests have complained about the pool area being too crowded to enjoy during the day. Other guests have said that people will reserve pool lounge chairs in the morning and then not return all day, making it difficult to enjoy the pool area.

Far from downtown

Hotel guests who wanted to explore downtown Victoria were disappointed by how far the city center is from the hotel. Taking a taxi was necessary for these guests because downtown is beyond comfortable walking distance.
