“Beautiful boutique hotel. Fantastic position in the lovely city of Victoria which is definitely worth a visit. Lots of shops, cafes and restaurants near by and within easy walking to the harbour. We had a spacious and elegantly furnished room with separate shower and bath. L’occitane products were a nice addition. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. All the staff were friendly and helpful. There is also a very nice restaurant as part of the hotel. We would happily recommend this hotel.” — weston59, TripAdvisor

“The Magnolia Hotel was such a friendly and welcoming hotel experience. When I visit Victoria again I will definitely stay at the Magnolia. This visit to Victoria was a high school graduation gift to my granddaughter and it couldn’t have been more perfect from the hotel staff recommendations for restaurants, to the facials and of course the to the staff in the restaurant that made us feel special.
Many, many thanks.” — Seaside04020395411, TripAdvisor
