I booked this accommodation as a treat for my daughter who is visiting from the UK. We thought her first few days getting over the lengthy flight would benefit from a stay at this hotel. My daughter found the hotel wonderful, the room was first class and the staff really friendly and helpful. The location is spot on for exploring Victoria. It is clear that the person managing this hotel is doing a great job. I would highly recommend it. First class stay.

I am happy to give the Oswego Hotel 5/5 Stars! My husband and I recently stayed there with our cat and were extremely pleased. We've traveled extensively and this was one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in in Canada and we would probably have never found it were it not for We were looking for a hotel in Victoria where we could stay with our cat and came across the Oswego on the petscanstay web site. I called the hotel to ask for some information and make reservations and was treated in a very friendly and helpful manner. I was pleasantly pleased when they even asked for my cat's name. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a beautiful room complete with a magnificent view as well as a welcome card addressed to my cat and one for my husband (I had mentioned that we were in town for a special occasion for him and they remembered with a lovely card). We had asked for the smallest room as we were only staying a few days so we were pleasantly surprised at the size of our room. There was a kitchenette (fully equipped), a large beautiful bathroom (complete with broom & dustpan making for easy cleanup of cat litter) as well as a large outside deck. The furnishings, decorations and “extra large” sized room and bathroom were high end and easily justify the 5 star rating. The location of the hotel was perfect -- right downtown Victoria and within a short distance of restaurants, shops and sight-seeing. I even liked the bath products in the room (H20+, one of my favourites). The staff was very friendly and helpful, going a little extra to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We loved the Oswego not only because it was a great hotel but because it is pet friendly. Often times hotels that allow pets have a few designated "pet rooms" that seem to be subpar; we did not get that feeling at all with the Oswego. It's about time that pet owners can travel with their pets and stay somewhere in style. Well done Oswego, we look forward to staying with you in the future and recommending you to our friends!

We recently stayed at the Oswego for one night while visiting from Vancouver. Overall, very impressed with everything from initial greeting, complimentary room upgrade, the room, the view, the staff...everything was amazing. Wouldn't change a thing!

Superb, loved the attention given to the dogs stay as well as the humans! nice touches for attentive dog owners. Staff casual polite and friendly can't fault any of them. Kitchen well equipped with pots & pans. Anything we wanted extra was trouble. Would recommend this hotel and stay again.

I love the fact that you offer Free Trade coffee, and that you are environmentally and LGBT friendly!! I will definitelyl stay at Oswego again because of that. My husband and I enjoyed a very quiet, relaxing night at the Oswego, and the view from the 6th floor facing the harbour was spectacular. Understated, eco-friendly and LGBT-friendly elegance!

We are three days into a nine day stay and we could not be happier. The room (two bedroom standard suite) is just amazing. Love, love the layout - feels like a luxury condo. Kitchen was so well stocked with pots, dishes, utensils, etc. that I was able to prepare a full meal for my family, with six of us eating comfortably around the kitchen bar. Staff and service is excellent. We will be back! Highly recommended. ..oh, and cannot thank you enough for the complimentary Wi-Fi and parking!

We stayed at the Oswego for four nights before going on to Vancouver. The suite we had was superb, all we needed for a short stay. The staff were helpful and friendly especially our server at breakfast in the hotel restaurant. I wouldn't want to spell her name incorrectly as it was of Irish origin, but it sounded like Cweevsha. She definitely stood out for us, friendly efficient and attentive! The location was ideal for us too,near the places we wanted to visit, but just far enough off the beaten track. After many years of travelling to Canada and the US from Scotland the Oswego is way up at the top of our list of favourite places to stay. I have to say a huge thank too, to our travel expert at North American Travel in Edinburgh for his personal recommendation of the Oswego.

I have been coming to Victoria now for the past two years visiting my 18 year old son who plays hockey with the Royals. I come every 6 weeks and stay at least a week at a time. I have stayed at all the major hotels here and finally found The Oswego and "my home away from home". Love the spacious kitchens, big baths, great restaurant, free Wifi, amazing location close to other great restaurants, grocery stores, blocks from Ocean walk and my dog Gigi and I love that Oswego caters to Pets! Soooo Friendly!!! The staff are all amazing and accomodating! Thank you Oswego See you Next Time!! Jennifer and Gigi
