Quality Throughout A review of Helm's Inn
From the outside Helm Inn looks like any motel....but a surprise awaits you.
Friendly staff, large well equipped bedrooms and bathrooms, full size fridge, coffee making equipment, sofas, good size tables, plenty of hanging and cupboard space and more.
As we added another night to the 4 we had booked we needed to change room (into Thunderbird Lodge) and were upgraded at no extra cost, we saw two different style layouts. They have various levels of bedroom suite but this basically applies to the amount of equipment in the kitchen area with stove/ovens in the upgrade suites.
The rooms were very well maintained with high quality fixtures/equipment.
Muffins, juice, yogurt, Java coffee (decafe and full leaded) form the continental breakfast supplied in the room.
They have one internet set up which is broadband and free ! No problem getting access. Free hot drinks and cookies at 4.00pm in reception area. Even have the Economist weekly plus other news magazines.
Finally, the location. 2 minutes walk from the outstanding BC Museum and 3 min walk from Victoria Inner harbour or Coach station (Pan Pacific coach from Vancouver via BC ferries & Swartz Bay and Grey Lines) plus all the shops on Douglas Street. Also adjacent to the Park.
This place is a gem, value for money and you cannot fail to be impressed.
