                • Group of friends
                  6.6

                  The personnel is very friendly and interested in giving the best service possible, and try to help out as much as possible. New Management very concerned about our experience and phoned to get feedback and offer solutions.

                  Breakfast at abc Restaurant was advertized as part of price but deal wasn't finalized at the time of our stay - further phone call from Management said it is now negotiated. We had to keep our bicylces in the room as we were told it was not safe in the outdoor lockup. Hotel ran out of hot water on Sat. Night due to problem beyond their control. We were told that the area of town was not the safest for guests.

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Courtesy and helpful information outstanding.

                  Bus service O.K. but the site is a little far from the downtown harbour area.

                • Couple
                  6.2

                  Good price and right in the part of town I needed to be.

                  Ice maker outside.No hair dryer.

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  The staff were extremely helpful with our queations about Victoria

                  I would have liked a hair dryer...a minor but something I use every day and unfortunately I didn't think to bring mine.I understand the premise of Travellers Inns as to be an economical place to stay....just a note from me to you

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  The outside does not look great but the rooms are nice and clean. Great value for money.

                  No fridge

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  Convenient location, fridge and microwave in room, comfortable bed with nice bedding, clean bathroom, quiet.

                  No guest laundry facilities, but that was minor inconvenience.

                • Group of friends
                  5.0

                  It has an old-world Victorian charm

                  Staff were extremely cold/not welcoming; not flexible in checking in early; looks very sketchy from outside; not a "5 minute walk" from Victoria attractions

                • Single
                  4.2

                  I was put in the basement. Never stayed in a hotel room in a basement. There were many insects due to this fact. When my room was made up the next day there was a stain on one of the white duvet covers.

                • Family with children
                  5.4

                  The location was perfect and the beds were very comfortable.

                  No hair dryers in the room, needed to put down a room deposit upon check in, the beds were great but the rooms could definitely use an update
