In the midst of a pandemic, the staff at the James Bay Inn could not have been better. The B.C. government shut down all kitchens during my stay. I woke up to an unexpected free fruit bowl and store bought muffins, with tea and coffee. After wandering Victoria for a few hours, I returned to find a free sandwich tray and a welcoming staff. I cannot say enough about the people who work there. Stress-less and helpful beyond what was necessary. I was expecting to buy snacks at a local grocery store but was instead treated like I mattered. I would highly recommend this hotel for all of the above. In addition, the building is beautiful and clean. And the staff were more than helpful in giving me local information.

Beautifully well kept property! The two gentlemen working the front desk during our stay were both extremely friendly and accomodating, very very helpful. The Inn has no elevator to 3rd floor, but..just so beautiful! There is a real nice Restaurant downstairs and the food was top notch! We really enjoyed our stay!

    Great location, fun pub with good, affordable food, friendly, helpful staff. The lighting in our suite was poor and the cleaning efforts were spotty.
