Victoria, BC is one of Canada’s most popular wedding, honeymoon and romantic getaway destinations. So as you might expect, there is a nice choice of places to stay for newlyweds, as well as couples on anniversary vacations and weekend escapes on Canada's West Coast.
Spend a night or two in the best parts of Victoria, and you'll think you've arrived in a small village in England!
So here's our review of Victoria BC romantic hotels and places to stay on the superbly scenic southern tip of Vancouver Island. If you're arriving by ferry from Vancouver, Victoria is an easy 30-minute drive or bus ride away. For those flying in, Victoria Airport is also close, about 25 mins by car.
Oak Bay Beach Hotel
Entrance to the Beautiful Oak Bay Beach Hotel in Victoria BC
Oak Bay Beach Hotel's Terrific Seaside Mineral Pools
- Oak Bay Beach Hotel - the Oak Bay Beach Hotel is right at the top of Victoria BC romantic hotels. Rooms are outfitted with mini kitchens, beautiful deep soaker tubs with high-end bath amenities, plush robes, gas fireplace, Wi-FI and Flat Screens, plus a separate sitting area and private balcony. Downstairs in the lobby, a beautiful great room with grand piano and seaside views awaits, with the cozy Snug Pub just around the corner. And...then there's the seaside Mineral Pools. In a word, they're fantastic. Open 24 hrs, and the main pool is kept at a nice & hot temperature of around 98 F, making a late-night swim under the stars not only possible, but very romantic and enjoyable, any time of year. Oh, one other thing: in keeping with the hotel's relaxed atmosphere, the pool area is designated a "whisper only" zone, and unlike some other adult pools we've seen, they are serious about this - zero tolerance for loud talking and cell phone calls. Bravo! What Other Couples Liked: Wonderful Anniversary Getaway...Magnificent Hotel and Pools. 2014 ERV Rating* for Romantic Victoria Hotels: 95% - Excellent. (1175 Beach Dr, Victoria BC 800-668-7758)
