Clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Quiet with no arrival perfumes in the room. Liked the private balcony also. Bathroom very nice and very clean . Chocolates on the pillows and minted water is a nice touch. The restaurant bistro is intimate but not crowded and we loved the Jazz on Wednesday night. The female singer had a marvelous voice.

Great place to stay. Gluten free options are lovely in the restaurant and the rooms are enjoyable for trips of a few days. Really appreciate the suite! A small suggestion would be to improve the lighting options in the bathroom as it is very difficult to apply make-up with the current lighting.

We had a lovely girls' weekend in Victoria staying at the Oswego Hotel. The accommodations were excellent and the staff were helpful and professional. The location was ideal, and the safety and comfort of the Hotel was well appreciated.

We spent three nights here, in town to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The room was very nice and quiet (except for a noisy refrigerator). The staff were friendly and helpful. We ate two meals in their Bistro (dinner & breakfast), and had good food & service both times. We got a good price on the room as part of a... More

I enjoyed every aspect of my stay at the Oswego Hotel. The atmosphere was peaceful, unhurried and friendly. The room was spacious, well appointed and bright with touches that made it feel warm and welcoming. After a one night stay I felt as if I had been on vacation for two weeks!

Although a little pricey, this is the best place to stay for us. Great location, walk to downtown, restaurants and just off the ferry dock, great service. We stay often and they know us by name. Very dog friendly.

Stylish in an understated way, perfect service (attentive, friendly, but not overwhelming), great rooms with well-equipped kitchens and big tall windows, a small but serviceable fitness centre, and great location. The restaurant has a pretty limited menu, but very good food – you can really tell that the ingredients are fresh.
