Theme of our ladies trip to Victoria - 'it's soooo cute!'. Hotel exemplified this with a grand lounge, old world charm (think Titanic hallways), beautiful room, windowed bath, and great photo ops. Heated mineral pools were fantastic, except for oddly enough, a barrage of hungry mosquitoes (3 bites!!) and a 'Karen' staff member who would not let our party of 3 sit on the pool deck together d/t 'COVID precautions'. Note: the 3 of us were sharing a room. Valet, concierge and other staff, were otherwise logical and helpful. I will be booking a family visit in 5 years, once my kids are old enough to use the pools. Unfortunately, the pools are now adult only.....perhaps it was too difficult for pool-deck Karen to keep families separated into group of 2s? Read less

Spent two days at the Oak Bay Resort enjoy the area. The hotel staff were welcoming ensuring we had everything we needed.

Covid measures were in place but it did not deter from enjoying our time there. We had a wonderful Ocean view room and spent some time out on the balcony. The room was very comfortable and spacious. We were able to make tea and coffee and eat breakfast in the room. We also had breakfast one morning at The Snug and it was great to put outside. The pool was super relaxing. All in all a wonderful couple days BC vacation Read less

Check out our 'Room with a View' from the edge of the Salish Sea. The Oak Bay Beach Hotel is exceptional-- and the spa is spectacular. Enjoy taking the water at the OBBH spa. You'll never forget the tepid saltwater. What an experience!

The pools are so relaxing. We had great service there (especially from Taylor - he was excellent!!) The only hiccup we had was not having any food options after 9pm. I was told to try skip the dishes, so not too big of a deal. I enjoyed my stay so much that I’ve already booked my next trip there!! Read less

This lovely hotel does not disappoint! We most appreciated the attention to detail, from check-in to check-out (for example, the heavy door to the suite kept out all the hallway noise). We chose the King Suite, residential view, but can't wait to stay in an ocean view next time!
