Hotel has outgrown its beauty from the past.
Noise level is excessive from the third floor down. People who travel are not at all aware of time to be quiet either by strong footsteps to furniture movement at 1130 pm to 1 am. Parking is not secures outside of the building. Gravel are is not lit by nighttime. Breakfast was ok.otherwise my wife and I will not be back even after renovations in 2018.

English Country Manor with Canadian Hospitality
An opportunity to stay in the Victoria area after an Alaskan cruise had me searching to find suitable accommodations for my wife and I. We were looking for something comfortable but classy, without being uptight, representative of "west coast experience". The English Inn fit the bill. It is in a quiet area of Esquimalt, right next door to Victoria. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. They are not "fully modern", with all the latest features such as built-in USB charging ports. But the WiFi is fast, our room had the appropriate amenities, it was clean and had true character and feel of being at an English Manor/Inn. I cannot speak about the TV and services available since I didn't have time to turn it on. There was a TV and it was very modern. The mornings had a great start with a continental breakfast "European style" that included home made croissants which were a delight on their own. We had an unrushed but comfortable start to our mornings at the Inn, and at night were able to relax and unwind in its rich surrounding. The staff was very helpful and gracious, which added to the charm and enjoyment of our stay there and in Victoria. The pictures speak to the character of the Inn and what the rooms are like. For an authentic visit to Victoria and the surrounding area, the setting of the English Inn and its staff are a credit to and great ambassadors for Vancouver Island.
