Top 10 hotels in Vancouver Island, Canada

August 5, 2022 Lean Nau

Refer to Vancouver Island as Victoria Island and risk a chorus of eye-rolls from the otherwise-friendly locals. Yes, Victoria is the main city on the island, but there are many distinct flavors to its logging and fishing settlements. Food and wine enthusiasts flock to the Comox Valley farm region, while the more outdoorsy types get their fix along the remote, forested beaches of North Vancouver Island. Visit the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve at Clayoquot Sound and you’ll return full of cocktail-party factoids.

Abigail's Hotel

Abigail's Hotel is a unique accommodation experience that blurs the lines between a small luxury hotel and a heritage bed-and-breakfast Inn. Abigail's is an adult-only, intimate 22-room property that is housed in a 1930's Tudor mansion. Its special atmosphere blends the romance and charm of the past with the comfort and convenience of modern accommodation. Located in romantic Victoria, British Columbia, Abigail's is quietly situated on the edge of the bustling downtown core and is three short blocks from Victoria's Inner Harbour, within walking distance of all the major downtown attractions and restaurants. Life is too short to be conventional, discover a splendour and charm that has been lost to the ages and uniquely exists at Abigail's.

I can't think of any issues with our stay other than it was too short. The Hotel room was wonderful and the staff even better. Five stars from me. The rooms was clean, Kitchenette well equipped, and unlike most hotels, everything worked. At check-in we were offered an up-grade which was a nice touch. Excellent over all.

Go for the food

Reviewed By vacationhappylady

While the hotel seems a little tired the Pacific Restaurant more than makes up for it. The food was exceptional, and the staff were so nice and helpful, despite the current difficulties with staffing. We were here with a tour group, had breakfast twice and dinner once. The Sunchoke Soup was a standout, I really liked the Pickles and Hummus too. The bartender is quite knowledgeable and helpful. Avocado Toast for breakfast was a winner, and my husband really enjoyed the Blueberry pancakes. Presentation was outstanding.

Great stay at oak bay beach resort

Reviewed By tawhelan

My mom and I wanted a little getaway so we booked two nights in the oak bay ocean beach hotel. The service was amazing. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. We loved the mineral pools and spent many hours sitting by the pool eating and drinking as there was poolside drink and food service. The beds were extremely comfortable and the view of the ocean was spectacular. We would definitely go back.

This is an excellent hotel in a prime location. It is a small hotel, with elegant touches. The beds are comfortable, high quality linens, and nice extras such as cream for the in- room coffee. Very close to the Victoria harbour, shopping and restaurants. Highly recommended.

I travelled for business. My stay was very comfortable. The cleanliness of my room and hotel were excellent. Great location. Close to the harbour, shopping, dining. I was on the 12th floor and had great view of the water. Staff were also very friendly and courteous. They were also quick to provide an answer or an umbrella for rainy days.

Truly enjoy staying here when in Nanaimo. My kid and I loved looking into the Harbour, and the restaurant has really great food. Beds were super comfy, and it's walking distance to the boardwalk along the ocean and little shops.
