Royal Scot Hotel & Suites
Travel Blogs from Victoria
Victoria what a wonderful place and what a great name. :-) the day was ours. We met a fantastic bus driver "Randy" on our way to the museum who had been to Australia and worked in the nightclubs in Queensland. Imagine how many comments and misunderstandings he got with that name??? Hi i'm Randy just for one.
Di, Rus and us decided to take …
The ferry crossing to Vancouver Island was just like a trip on the spirit of Tasmania. Comfortable and smooth plenty of food available and friendly Canadians to chat to. We cross the Strait of Georgia and arrive 1 3/4 hours later.
We stopped off in the town of murals for lunch really interesting. A native tried to sell us some dried …
We arrived into Victoria on a hot, sunny Saturday afternoon. On the drive from the airport to our Downtown hotel, you could appreciate why this was called 'the Garden City'. After checking in, and dropping our bags, we hit the town, Lonely Planet Guide (our trusty Bible) in hand. We strolled hand-in-hand along the harbor front, taking in the sea …
... on the bus and when the doors opened we were first cab out of the ferry so to speak and away we went joined a freeway system when this lady came up and started to talk to the driver who by the way nearly died of a heart attack as she had just tapped him on the shoulder and said "Excuse me driver but you did not stop in Swartz Bay" he looked at her and said did you not hear me say if you want to get off at Swartz Bay you will need to walk off the ferry, and he then said ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Scot Hotel & Suites Victoria
Good value but GREAT service
I can only agree with what else has been written here. The rooms were clean and well-appointed for the price and the pool and the hot-tub were great. The location is fabulous - just a couple of minutes walk from the Inner Harbour.
But, best of all, the staff were incredibly helpful and full of useful advise. I've stayed in many more expensive hotels that could learn an awful lot from The Royal Scot.
If I had any gripes, they would be that the rooms were a little warm and that the service in the restaurant was slow - but they really are minor and did not detract from our stay.
We travel to Victoria about once a year for vacation and lately we've only stayed at the Royal Scot. why stay anywhere else? it's comfortable, clean, centrally located, very kid-friendly, homey-feeling. the staff is genuinely friendly. We have 2 young children and the in-suite kitchen makes things so easy with them. We've stayed at the Empress, and there's no question it's a nice hotel with an excellent staff. But, because of the kitchen and comfort factor, even if the Empress was as inexpensive as the Royal Scot, I still think I'd prefer the Royal Scot.
Excellent place to stay
One of the best hotels we've ever stayed. Very clean, well appointed and great location. Staff very friendly and helpful, could not have done enough for us.
Great location, spacious room and wonderful service
We stayed there on July 29, 04 for only one night and am really missed the place already. Very friendly but also polite, efficient stuff, and huge room (we stayed one bedroom suite). It's right next to Parliament and everything in downtown in walking distance, but they also give you the shuttle service to downtown on demand! You get the best from this place with very reasonable rate! I'll definitely come back to Victoria, and Royal Scot Suite Hotel soon.
Very Warm & Welcoming
A very warm & welcoming hotel. The staff are friendly, helpful & efficient and all seem to try extremely hard to look after their guests. The lady on the tour desk was especially helpful & enthusiastic and spent a long time recommending several restaurants and bars for us.
We were upgraded to a suite which was spacious, comfortable and well equipped.
There is a free hotel shuttle service (there and back) to almost anywhere in the city centre, which is useful for guests who are not too mobile.
The swimming pool is a little bigger than most hotel pools and worth a visit.
The service at breakfast was slightly below the overall high standards ... but this didn't ruin our enjoyment!
Just got back from our visit to Victoria, B.C. It is a lovely city to explore on foot, and I could not have selected a better hotel in such an excellent location. The staff was very friendly and accomidating. The hotel was elegant and very clean. The restaurant served very good food. Little conveniences like the gift/food shop were very handy to have close by. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area, and would gladly stay here again.
Love the atmosphere
I stayed here for one of their packages. The staff were very helpful and made me feel very welcome. The atmosphere made it better than a lot of the standard carbon copy rooms. I would definiatly stay here again and recommend it to anyone who is considering it.
Just got back
Just got back from Canada where we ended our holiday staying at this hotel. Enjoyed 4 days of relaxation in a suite only minutes away from the harbour. It's the ideal location to enjoy Victoria, and the amenities are excellent. You even get squirrels at the window in the morning. Staff are so helpful and the restaurant serves lunch until 4pm. Would highly recommend a stay here, and would go back again and again.
This is a really nice and homey hotel with considerate staff!!
My husband and I will stay at the Royal Scot over and over again without hesitation. You get treated like valued members of society without having to even have titles. It is such a lovely atmosphere with comfortable, spacious rooms.
Central yet homey
Wonderful location, minutes walk from the Inner Harbor yet in a quiet leafy residential area. Enormous 2 bedroom unit (and my standards are spacious) decorated to feel like a home rather than a hotel. Nice little touches like being offered bottles of water for the car when checking out. In suite laundary and broadband would make the place near perfect.
