As a family of 5 people we found the hotel in a great location close to the water. The 2 bedroom suite was perfect for a family. The staff and service was excellent throughout our stay from the check-in to the check-out.

Had a great stay at the Oswego hotel, the rooms were well equipped and comfortable, only a short walk to fisherman's wharf and the harbour, the staff were helpful, we had a room facing the mountains and harbour area which had the sun, a nice place to chill after a busy day.

Our room was exceptionally clean and was kept so by the very attentive housekeeping staff. The bed was comfortable and the shower efficient. I was a little worried that there were no curtains, only blinds which left the room quite light at night and very light early in the morning. Our west facing room had no air conditioning and could...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are glad that overall you enjoyed your stay with us. Victoria's climate is mild and normally we do not warrant air conditioning. All of our suites have ceiling fans and doors and windows that open. Being located in James Bay there is always a cool breeze coming off the...

We had a great stay here for 2 days, wish we'd stayed longer. They upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite with full kitchen (including a dishwasher), what a gorgeous room up on the 9th floor. Fantastic views of the area, it was beautiful, even had a furnished balcony. Could see the snow-capped mountains of the USA in the distance,...

We have no idea about hotels in Victoria so we did my own research and decided on Oswego. We originally booked a one bedroom suite for the 4 of us for 2 nights but upon checked in, we asked if we can get a room on a higher floor. They offered us a penthouse suite with 2 bedrooms at a...

Room, location and staff were excellent, the only disappointment was the breakfast. We wanted pancakes and were told the kitchen had ran out of them due to a supplier issue, the other breakfast options were over priced and disappointing. Apart from this we really enjoyed this hotel and would definitely stay again and go to the Jam Café (10 minutes...

We are so pleased that you enjoyed our location and also amenities within the hotel. We do offer many Gluten Free options for our guests in the O Bistro. When we work with a supplier and for any reason we feel that their product is not 100% perfect, we will not pass this onto the guest. Unfortunately, this was a...

We stayed here a few years ago and decided to stay again on our return trip to Victoria. It is still a wonderful hotel. The rooms are spotless, the beds are comfortable and the staff are great.

We arrived on a late evening on June 11 with my 2 children and husband. The staff was very helpful and accommodating.
