Superb 9.2 From 1,046 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Central and comfy
Great location, great service from the staff and comfy bed. However, some of the in-rooms features could do with an update. The heater for a start is super loud and old with very well hidden buttons to switch it on. Plus it's not clear how to use it. Complimentary self serving breakfast was perfect for what we needed. The waffle maker was greatly appreciated!

Need a break then come and stay at the Embassy.
From the time we checked in, our experience was nothing but great. The room was spacious and clean. Just minutes walk to the water front. Overall, our stay at this hotel was pleasant and highly recommend.

Excellent stay
Our stay here was excellent, we were not lacking anything. Very clean, very quiet and the location was excellent- next to the parliament buildings. Walkable to all kinds of restaurant, attractions and the harbour front.
Garth, ca2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Yes! Best stay so far in Victoria! Will be back!
The hotel was one of the best stays we have had it Victoria. The staff was AMAZING from beginning to end. Plus my kids LOVED watching the Firefighters train in the old building!! Breakfast was delish and both kids were pleased with the choices. The room was updated and the bathroom was perfect! Kids loved the tub (it was deep enough to pretend it was a pool). We cannot wait to stay here again!

Great place for a good sleep
Great hotel good price. Only suggestion for the hotel is that they should warn guests that the adjoining building is used for fire practice. When we got up three mornings in a row there was a large firefighter presence. They aren't disruptive, just a little startling LoL
