This 106 room, non-smoking hotel is located about a 10 minute drive from the downtown Victoria area, on the George Waterway. Based on reviews, this hotel was very popular with pet owners because of ample green space around the hotel to walk pets.

Guests can choose from a variety of rooms, including Standard rooms, or more spacious Suites, some of which include a full kitchen or a kitchenette and an electric fireplace.

While the location of this hotel was popular with many guests who liked being removed from the downtown core, access to many of Victoria's main attractions requires a vehicle.

Butchart Gardens is slightly farther, about a 27 minute drive away. Guests travelling by air should budget about 33 minutes to drive the 25.8km between the hotel and Victoria International Airport (YYJ) (distances and driving time estimates: Google Maps).
