Victoria, Vancouver Island
Over 100 years old, this legendary hotel is the symbolic centrepiece of Victoria and exudes regal grandeur in abundance. Beneath the ivy-clad walls and chateau-style architecture, however, you’ll find only the most modern of amenities, ensuring an extremely comfortable stay. A lavish afternoon tea is served in the magnificent Tea Lobby, surrounded by handcrafted tapestries and polished hardwood floors and is a local tradition not to be missed. The Empress Room serves classic cuisine with an eclectic twist which will tantalise even the most discerning of taste buds. For a delicious curry buffet, head to the Bengal Lounge, which takes inspiration from Queen Victoria’s role as the Empress of India. There’s also an impressive martini menu, so enjoy! The Veranda overlooks the Inner Harbour and is the perfect place to relax with a drink and a light lunch before embarking on more sightseeing. Other amenities at the hotel include a lovely indoor swimming pool, a children’s wading pool and fitness centre. The Willow Stream Spa is an oasis of peace and serenity with treatments galore to leave you feeling truly pampered and in the peak of health.
