A very pleasant hotel in a lovely location, with good value.

We stayed at the Coast Victoria Harbourside at the end of June, 2010. It was very easy to locate and easy to drive to with our rent-a-car, and very convenient to the major attractions around Victoria's harbor and downtown. The hotel offers secure covered parking in the garage on the lower level, with convenient elevator access directly to the lobby check-in area. The front desk staff were very welcoming and cheerful, and went out of their way to help us with our every question. The Hotel is located directly on the harbor, in a very nice residential area just on the outskirts of downtown, within an easy 5-to-10-minute walk from the ferry landings, Parliament, and the charming downtown waterfront area. The beautiful iconic hotels, quaint restaurants and downtown shops are all nearby. The sights and sounds of the harbor from the hotel are remarkable, and it's an easy matter right at the hotel marina to hail one of the charming little water taxi boats that shuttle back and forth to places around the harbor, for a few dollars each way. The restaurant dining room featured a fabulous view, with beautiful wood paneling and expansive glass window-walls, which made for an elegant and cheery atmosphere. At first glance we thought the menu might be a bit pricey and the food a little too "gourmet" for our tastes - but after trying the special salad, the special halibut filet with cous-cous, and the incredible desserts, we left completely satisfied withthe meal, the outstanding setting, the wonderful service, and the value of all of the above. The only minor problem we noted during our stay was that the hotel interiors (hallways, carpets, etc.) were beginning to show their age a bit, and were about ready for some "refreshing". Otherwise, the Coast Harborside is a wonderfully comfortable, scenic, and relaxing retreat that's just far enough from the city's action spots to be quiet and calm, but close enough that you don't feel isolated in any way from all that the beautiful city of
