Oak Bay Beach Hotel
Ranked #3 of 49 Hotels in Victoria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2017

We had a room facing the street(3rd floor). It was quiet and well appointed with a fantastic bathroom as well as a mini kitchen area with toaster, microwave and utensils. The bed was great and the AC worked perfectly - no rattling or noise. The setting of the hotel is stunning. Orcas were spotted right off the point where the hotel is located. The staff were friendly. We did not eat in the restaurant.

Room Tip: 334 was quiet.

We had a beautiful suite with an ocean view. The property is very well looked after. The amenities are first rate. The staff are well trained and attentive. The restaurant is first class. It really does not get much better than this.

Room Tip: We had an ocean view suite, but a city view room would be less expensive and you would still have mo...

Dear John P,
Thank you for your kind words. Our property is, without question, a beautiful building with truly incredible views and well-appointed amenities. It is our staff, however, who have elevated our hotel to one of the top destination hotels in the country through diligence, enthusiasm, and warm and attentive hospitality. We look forward welcoming you back and being of service for many years to come.
Warm regards,
Phil Trott

The view from my Ocean View room was mostly just the top of a roof of a lower building but what i did see of the ocean was beautiful. The bedding had a cigarette burn or some type of hole on one of the beds. The bathroom was amazing and the room was beautiful. However, for about $280 a night i was disappointed with the view and the bedding with the holes. I've stayed at various hotels/motels at all diffrenet price points. I am normally easy to please but when ive stayed at Ramadas that have better sheets and than what my room had.

Dear KoPa12,
Thank you for the valuable feedback from your stay in March of this year. I was pleased to hear you enjoyed your well-appointed room, complete with an “amazing” bathroom. The view you described belongs to a category of rooms designated as ‘Partial Ocean View’. On your next visit, I highly recommend booking a room from our prestigious collection in ‘Our Best’ category. These stunning rooms offer a complete unobstructed view of the ocean.
Please accept our apologies for the quality of the bed linens in your room. As we are a 100% smoke-free hotel, it is unlikely the small hole was the result of a cigarette. Regardless of the cause, however, we sincerely regret this oversight. Despite the concern you shared, I hope you will consider returning to the Oak Bay Beach Hotel when your travels bring you back to Victoria.
Kind Regards,
Phil Trott
Assistant General Manager

Elegant hotel with beautiful appointed rooms, great service and right on the water. Oh and we saw whales from the terrace of the restaurant, it was amazing. It is a very special place, we will definitely be returning.

This is a first class hotel with best-in-class service. The hotel is in Oak Bay, which s a 15-20 minute ride from downtown Victoria. A tuxedo-clad driver picked us up at the Victoria Clipper station in a brand new, high end Escalade and took us directly to the hotel. We checked into an ocean view (of Salish Sea) room on the terrace level which provides direct access to the mineral baths from the room’s patio. The concierge and front desk staff were very accommodating and took care of all arrangements including a tour of Victoria, and transportation into town for dinner.

We took advantage of the Spa for massages, but never got a chance to try the mineral baths, which looked very inviting. The spa was very nice, and our particular therapist was average.

Eating options were limited to the casual fare Snug pub (age 21 and over), and the more formal Dining Room, which has very limited seating. There is dining from either menu in the lobby area, but is reserved for families that have children under 21.

I highly recommend the Oak Bay hotel and would go there again.
