Historical Traveler Reviews Coast Victoria Harbourside Hotel & Marina
Great rooms & lovely view
We enjoyed three days at this hotel, in a room overlooking the harbour. The room was fantastic, really clean with terrific views of the harbour and teh seaplanes taking off and landing from the little balcony. The location was great too. The only criticism would be the hotel staff, we really didn't find them that friendly at all, we practically had to drag information from the concierge who seemed to be sufferering severe depression. The service was pretty slow in the dining room too but the food was good (room service was excellent). All in all I would recommend this hotel to others just don't expect to be welcomed with open arms.
My family stayed at the Coast Harbourside for two nights in April. We were treated very well by all staff, but have to say the drivers of the free shuttle service were outstanding! We have three children and found the shuttle to be heaven sent! The drivers went out of their way for us and made the trip just that much nicer! The indoor/outdoor pool was also great fun for the kids. My only complaint would be that the restaurant was very high priced, especially for a family of 5....but we did utilize it for breakfast and the buffet was wonderful.
Enjoyed Coast Victoria Harbourside
Great Location---close to downtown and on the harbor Excellent and courteous staff---helpful and very friendly in that sincere"canadian" way. Would not hesitate to go back!!
March 8-10, 2004 We stayed here two nights. Local calls were free. The room was nice, with a king bed. We could actually see water from our small balcony even though we had a highly discounted price from expedia.com in the off season. They had free shuttle service to downtown. The indoor/outdoor pool was wonderful! The hot tub was the biggest I have ever been in. They were great. We did not try out the restaurant because the prices were really high. The staff was very polite.
Modern Elegance, Great for Kids
We stayed at this hotel on a family referral and Wow! It didn't disappoint.
Our kids couldn't get enough of the pool. An indoor/outdoor type, with great ocean views. The restaurant, the Blue Crab, had some of the best seafood around.
Our room was great. We had a suite with a large balcony with great views, and the living room had a pull-out for the kids.
This hotel was very well-priced, with great service, and we'd recommend it to anyone.
Coast Harborside hotel exceeded our expections. The concierge went the extra mile to personally book our leisure activities. The gourmet Italian complimentary coffee was delicious and our hotel harbour view was beautiful. But most of all the staff was kind, friendly and always attentive to our needs. Thanks for the wonderful and amazing accommodations. Laura.

The Coast Harbourside is a beautiful hotel. Well maintained with outstanding rooms, service and hotel personnel. We loved the location and the indoor/outdoor pool. The hotel is just an excellent value and a truly 4 star hotel.
The Victoria Coast Harbourside Hotel is an exceptionally beautiful hotel on a location that cann't be beat! Our rooms were tastefully decorated. We had a wonderful view of the marina. The service and staff were all very nice. The hotel is modern, immaculate and the walkway to the Victoria tourist attractions is wonderful. I'd certainly recommend it highly.
Great Hotel Near Everything!
My bride and I stayed at the Coast Harbourside Hotel in Victoria for our Honeymoon last year. It was great!
The hotel is located right on the harbour, so you can walk along the pathway right up to all thr tourist attractions. Also, "Orca Spirit", the best whale watching tour operator is based out of this hotel, so you can just stroll downstairs to go whale watching.
Fodors gives it low marks because of the high rack rate, but we surfed the net and found a great discount rate during the "Shoulder Season", before all the tourists pour in to the Inner Harbour. For the $100/night we paid it was fantastic!! Here's a tip: after booking the hotel online, call the hotel directly and ask for an upgrade to a harbour-facing room.
If you don't feel like walking, the hotel offers complimentary shuttle service anywhere downtown. Also, the harbour ferry has a stop right at the hotel.
A couple of words of warning though: the restaurant at the hotel is VERY expensive, but so are all restaurants within view of the harbour. Also, all the local seaplane companies use the harbour for their runway, so get used to the sounds of planes taking off.

... but it seems a very jovial place.
It's not a big place, so exploring didn't take long, but it was very lively as there was a dragon-boat festival on that had brought in some extra crowds. We had a snoop around the harbour-side areas where all this was happening and then moved off just north of there to find some lunch. We'd been recommended to try a place called Canoe, but found the menu to be rather uninspiring and came back towards ...
... building. I wonder if there are any ghosts in there.
And the food! While waiting to be served, we got a small bag of house made potato chips, and the menu had a lot to offer. I went for the mussels with chorizo, he went with the healthier option of mushroom+bacon+cheddar burger... with a side salad. And though we didn't get a ...

Bags collected and room douboe checked we somewhat sadly said goodbye to our home for the last week the 'Coral Princess' This was a fantastic way to see what we saw in Alaska. For what we paid we got a great room, unpacked our backpacks, 3 or more amazing meals a day and dropped at each port with plenty of time to explore. ...
... to invite Queen Victoria to the Town & they are still lit to this day! After taking pictures we looped back to the hotel. Now the receptionist needn't of told us about the midnight rule as our rock & roll lifestyle meant we were back by 9 & in bed by 9.30 watching property program's! After setting the alarm for an early start we headed down to have our breakfast. There was a great spread & even muffins which we could wrap up for an afternoon ...
... had more trouble amusing herself until we used my socks to help keep her headphones in place. We had a good visit in Nova Scotia despite some cooler than normal weather. Sophia and Meredith love to see their cousins and we were kept busy with trips to playgrounds, jumping on the trampoline at David and Terri's house, and being spoiled by Grammie and Grampie. The week flew by and, although we were sad to say goodbye to the Halifax crew, all of us were happy to see Andrew after ...
