Recent guest reviews
Very comfortable bedroom with sitting,kitchen areas and balcony equipped with all that was needed, just a short walk to the harbour and bus station. We received a warm welcome on our arrival and staff had time to talk and answer questions. Lovely lobby and roof garden areas to relax in.
A beautiful, well appointed hotel. Our 'room' was actually a suite with full kitchen, dining and lounge areas plus two bathrooms. An exceptional standard of accommodation in close walking distance to shops, attractions, pubs and the waterfront. Like most Canadian properties, it is without air con, but there were two good fans in our suite and opening windows and door to the balcony to deal with the unusual, late summer heat during our stay. Free WiFi. We highly recommend the Parkside.
We visit Victoria every year for a late summer vacation and ever since our first stay at the Parkside we have felt quite simply at home with the place.THe helpful staff, the relaxed atmosphere and the location all combine to give us what we want. Yes..quite simply..a vacation. Jim and Margaret A
Booked for a 2 day short break and found this to be an excellent hotel, ideally locate with friendly and helpful staff. The suite was clean and well appointed with all the facilities we needed. No problem in recommending The Parkside.
Arrived quite unwell, to a beautiful well appointed, accredited green, hotel. Spacious, way above average appointments and SO close to everything. Hop on Hop off tour stops at the door, short walk to down town, shorter to museum. 6 minutes or so to The Market for all you could want in groveries and fresh food. Meant so much, we had so much planned but just not happening. Staff are way above expectations and we have enjoyed our stay despite having to cook for ourselves and slum it with salad, amazing tomatoes, prawns and fresh Sockeye!! This place ticks all boxes except ATM or restaurant on site but both are very close. Free internet also and staff are superb
This was a great place to stay. A decent size bedroom plus a living area and kitchen area with table. All decorated to a high standard. The room had a TV (one in bedroom and one in living area), microwave, washing m/c, kettle, plenty of china and utensils plus comfortable chairs. Main entrance hall is very large, welcoming and looks the part. Staff also very helpful. There is no air conditioning so the rooms can get warm (it was unusually hot at 29c while we were there) but they provided a fan and we had no problems sleeping.
Had to upgrade two times to get a decent room. Hotel keys did not work and cleaning staff very slow on some days. There are much nicer hotels in the Victoria area for the same price or cheaper,. Look around.
Excellent staff, I really felt taken care of and they were very attentive. My room was excellent, very clean. The location of the hotel is great. HUGE plus, having Caffe Fantastico in the hotel is a huge plus, if you're a coffee buff.
Great base for stay in Victoria! We were upgraded to 2 bed suite and the hotel overall experience was excellent - far better than a lot of chain hotels I stay in for work. Person on reception represented you well - set you aside from others on our trip so far!
The hotel has everything a traveller could ask for,great location,very good apartments including,dining/kitchen area fully equipped good bathroom and bedroom.A rooftop terrace and a cinema for 30 guests film shows nightly if required. The staff are excellent at giving good advice on places to eat and things to do.The wi fi is free and works well throughout the hotel.A very good swimming pool and jacuzzi almost completes the interior.A private parking garage lies beneath the hotel.
