Great Stay
Hotel was really good but the staff was brand new as apparently they have laid off most of the people during the pandemic, hotels very clean but during this post covet time, they are not cleaning the rooms on a daily basis. The only clean them when you leave the hotel as a checkout. The other interesting thing was that most of their room to not have air conditioning, however they have fans and Victoria is very cool at night so we did not need the air conditioning at all oh, but that is something to note if you absolutely require an air conditioning, to ensure that the room has AC.

We had a great stay.
We stayed here for three nights in the one bedroom. The sofa bed was very comfy, decent size bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. Overall a great room. The staff was accommodating, professional and friendly. Great location!

Home away from Home
I stay at the Oswego every chance I get!! I absolutely love this property. I have stayed at many other hotels for years! I used to stay at the Parkside, the Marriott, the Rialto and for a hotel with full kitchen this one is the absolute best. I love the location as well. It's quiet and serene. If you do stay there be sure to check out Nourish!

Fair 4.0
Super disappointing
Room wasn't very clean, the only thing given for a birthday were three little cookies on a plate, breakfast wrap and quiche had no taste and fruit salad had old/browned fruit in it. I would not recommend this hotel, which is too bad, as six years ago, it was a fabulous place. So much work is needed in it, it's extremely hot, and can't be called a boutique hotel as there is nothing special about it at all.

First time was great!
Great room great location ...hopefully when new beds are installed they might be king size. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - the room was wonderful. We look forward to a more ‘full service’ bistro one day on our next visit.

James Bay location worth a visit
Front desk staff were so friendly and welcoming at our check-in. The Kitchenette was nicely equipped and was well used during our stay. This was a good choice for visiting family in the James Bay area, yet still close enough for a nice walk into Downtown Victoria.
