The in room Wi-Fi was a bit weak with the signal often dropping out. Over our three night stay breakfast always took some while, let's say leisurely, with seemed like only one person to serve all 6/7 tables - but no big deal as we were relaxed about it
The building lived up to its photo images - apparently it was built in 1905 for the mayor of Victoria. We were given the Duchess's room which overlooked the front and side, had a real fireplace which we couldn't resist trying, and a bathroom out of the Addams family - all gloomy wood panelling but full of character. We sometimes shared tables and it nice to talk with other travellers, hear about their trips etc. There was tea, coffee and cakes every afternoon along with sherry at 6pm which was a nice touch. The location on Humboldt Street was perfect for walking into Victoria to see the sights and for shopping and dining. We didn't use the hub tub in the garden - I'm not sure if anyone did actually. The garden itself was full of colour and had chairs to relax in. All in, a good place to stay in Vancouver Island and good value too.
