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 …
... travelling in such close proximity any more. Bit sad this evening. We've really grown fond of some of our travelling companions. Up to us, I suppose, to slowly identify where we all are on the ship and get some drinks organised in particular cabins? We also bid farewell to our marvellous Tour Director (Vicki) and to Canada itself. Vicki got crook for a week like the rest of us but she never missed a beat - keeping us all in tow is ...
... of the flora (a challenge for Wanda's rocks, bridges & churches). Today we did the hop on hop off bus, of course we had to go up on the roofless double decker... At 50km an hr Rob got hit with a branch (it was really funny), no it was hilarious in fact. And it was so cold but we are Aussies and toughed out the cold winds while all the other wusses went below. Rob is happy as he has spotted a few deer. We also went on ...
... interesting parts of Victoria including the busy harbour with floatplanes landing, cruise ships and ferries entering and leaving, floating homes and water taxis (pickle boats) zipping in and out of all the activity.
One evening the three of us went on a pub crawl .... The pickle boats ferried us back and forth across the harbour from pub to pub. We finished ...
Went to Victoria meeting this morning. Started off with Sunday School, quite amazing a lot of members of the e celosia go to Sunday school they run 2 adult classes!

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.
