Westin Bear Mountain Victoria Golf Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Victoria
Ok, so after a long morning of travel by road and by sea to get to Victoria, BC (5+ hours).... our hard work has paid off because we were rewarded with a Penthouse suite that rivals some of the best we have ever had the personal pleasure of staying at. We are at The Westin Bear Mountain (just outside of Victoria), which is a brand new golf resort …
... cousins) and many others. We felt very welcome.
Sandra and I went for a short hike in the afternoon through the Crown bushland walk trails near their home. It was absolutely lovely – heavily wooded, streams of water running over rocks, water laden ground, dark spooky pathways occasionally along with a few hills to get the muscles working – great fun!
Sunday night was the lecture and Mike and Mase headed off early ...
After a short rest at our condo and something to eat, Mom and I decided to head down Government Street to do some shopping and sightseeing.
We bought some souvenirs for ourselves plus Michael, Joanne, Frederick and Fiona. We also bought some post cards for Gladys and Joanne's Parents.

... architectural tour on the fourth morning there, and took lots of great photos, only a few of the very best of which I've uploaded, being mindful that not everyone finds architecture as interesting as I do! But hey, it's my blog, and you can always skip them, right? Day two was time to explore as much of Victoria as we could, and the bus hop on/off tour at the waterfront was an easy answer to this. Right in front of the magnificent Canadian Pacific Railroad hotel, The ...

There they were, my favourite shirts, my rechargers and my magical mini umbrella. I pulled everything out and unpacked, feeling sad to have left Europe, but happy to be home.
Today, I started packing again, as I prepare to go back to Vancouver tomorrow to carry on with my MA. Let me tell you, I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Westin Bear Mountain Victoria Golf Resort & Spa
This is a beautiful hotel in an idylic setting outside of Victoria. Part of a huge development that reminded us of a young Whistler with all the money being sunk into this development. All aspects of the property itself were excellent.
You must stay here! Awesome hotel!
I am typing this from a huge one bedroom suite w/fireplace at the brand-new Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa in Victoria B.C.
I can't say enough good things about this hotel!!
Front desk was unable to offer a Starwood Platinum upgrade at check-in (hotel is full) but they did call the next morning to advise they had found a suite for the rest of my stay - nice!
For those of you who have been to the Westin Trillium House in Collingwood, this new Westin is 10x better and much more deluxe / high-end - which is not an easy feat!
Bravo Westin! Well done! Please keeping building hotels like this!!
We stayed at the Westin Bear Mountain resort after a couple of days at Whistler. We were absolutly speechless when we arrived at the Bear Moutain resort.
We stayed one night at the Westin Bear Mountain on July 3, 2006. We were in a kitchenette unit in the Clubhouse building, which apparently opened this spring. Even though the landscaping was not yet all complete, the grounds are very attractive, and it seems that a lot of effort is going into the setting.
I stayed at the Westin for 2 weeks in May this year while in Victoria on business. The staff was really helpful and always there for you. The rooms are brand new and quite spacious. I would recommend the one bedroom suite but I also stayed in the classic room and they are very good also. The new health club facility is really outstanding . If your a golfer this is the place to stay as the course is challenging and beautiful. Quite a test!! The only negative is the cost of the food. It is Westin type prices and therefore a bit expensive. I would say if you want you should bring some food into your room as each room has a small fridge and eating area. This hotel is really a special place. It is a few minutes from downtown( 15 minutes) but well worth the drive. It really made my 2 weeks in Victoria a time to remember.
We stayed at Bear Mountain with friends over New Year's weekend. The accommodations were great and very comfortable for four people (we had a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit). The service was very good and the people there were very attentive and helpful. The shopping and dining choices are a bit limited, but the restaurant on site is good. The spa wasn't open yet, but promises to be quite good. The fitness center was by far the best we've seen anywhere. The variety of equipment was exceptionally good and the people working there were very helpful. Be sure to swim in the endless pool. It is cleaned with salt rather than chlorine and you can really tell the difference. Since they are still largely in the construction phase at Bear Mountain, the hotel isn't too full, but the rates are great. Be sure to try it out before it gets really pricey.
What a great place to stay - even if you are not a golfer !
What a great place! We had a room with a kitchen and everything was so new that they have not been used. Room had a view of the first hole. Bathroom was beautifully laid out.
What a great golf experience! It is one of friendliest golf course I have played in Victoria. Drove the 17th hole Par 4 and made birdie. The 12th hole is similiar to the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass.
Will definitely return.
Outstanding brand new hotel right on Jack Nicklaus golf course. Rooms are very spacious. Beautifully decorated 1 bedroom unit with full kitchen at great rate. Best golf in Victoria. Will be back to stay here again.
