Recent guest reviews

Excellent hotel in Sidney . Very clean, comfortable and close to everything. Room was comfortable and affordable . The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There is no reason to go all the way to Victoria to sleep !

Very clean, excellent service. In the centre of Sidney by the sea. The beds were very comfortable, The furniture appeared to be new, good size TV. Dogs are welcome, they were treated very well. The restaurant was very close, excellent for breakfast.

This is a nice hotel is a little bit older but was very clean and well maintained. Its location was close to the airport, shopping and a few restaurants. The staff was very helpful and knew the area well.

Nice Hotel in a beautiful little city. In waökin distance from the sea. We where in the Killarny house. Clean and spacious rooms. With a Keurig coffee maker! Comfy beds! Friendly stuff. We've got 25% off coupons for the Breakfast in the restaurant beside rhe hotel. Would stay there again as everything is in walking distance

small but very efficient lobby. Newspaper available. Very comfortable and secure - - when was waiting there, began reading newspaper, but so relaxed, just dosed off for 15. Room has king bed, best one comfortwise that we have had. Smitty's does a great job serving BW customers breakfast.

Walk to the water, check out the shops. Super staff-helpful for recommendations, wake up calls, ideas for an evening out. Quiet, clean, great location-thanks for all the help. Conveniently located to shopping, dining, coffee, etc.

I always stay at this hotel when visiting Sidney and Victoria. I know I will have excellent accomodation with helpful, professional staff and it is a great location to enjoy the delightful town of Sidney.

This is a really great hotel. I would rate it as a "15" out of "10" because it was so good! The rooms are very clean and very quiet. The hotel staff were all very helpful. There is a really nice exercise room and a guest laundry room as well. Even though there is an airport a few miles away, we never heard any planes. There is a restaurant on-site for breakfast and lunch but not for dinner. There are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance from the hotel. We will definitely stay here again if we are back to Vancouver Island for a vacation. It is about 30 minutes from Victoria but very easy to get to and to get to the Schwartz Bay ferries.

This hotel is outdated in decor, but clean and quiet for a good nights rest. There is no continental breakfast, which was disappointing, but the hotel is attached to a Smitty's restaurant. WE were also disappointed there was no pool or much for the kids to do besides watch tv. The in room internet was fair, the kids couldn't watch netflix on their devices as it wouldn't load. But the beds were comfortable.

The hotel was clean and the staff were helpful. The location is excellent. It is conveniently located next to a restaurant. The in-room coffee maker was appreciated. I also liked that it had a monitor with upcoming airline flights to check on your flight status.
