Victoria BC Getaway

We stayed at the Fairmont Empress. This is a first class hotel and you receive the best service and outstanding accommodations. Breakfasts features a buffet that has international foods. Highlights were high tea, swimming pool and fitness center, Bug Zoo, Buchart Gardens, Barclay's Restaurant, and the Royal BC Museum.

Steak and seafood are wonderful. Try the salmon grilled on a cedar plank. Lobster, filet, and pork ribs are grilled to perfection. Nice atmosphere with cozy banquettes and attractive artwork. [Editor's Note: Barkley's has closed.]
