British Columbia trip.

Pros: I loved all of the antique furniture around the hotel and the many English art works.
Cons: I would improve the air conditioners.
Location: The Waddling Dog is about half and hour north of Victoria and just south of the airport. The location made it easy for us to drive around BC.
We stayed at the Waddling Dog which is just north of Victoria, it is a very quaint hotel with lots of old world charm and very nice staff. The room was clean and the queen size bed was very comfortable. Our hotel stay included daily breakfast. Attached to the hotel is restaurant and bar that had nightly specials making our food dollars go a bit farther. My only concern was with the air conditioner, it did not seem to cool our room sufficiently (but it has been a very hot summer).

Would Stay Again

Stayed early in new year to take my daughter wedding dress shopping. Room was quaint, comfortable and quiet, except for the heating system. Once I figured out how to work it right, then all was peaceful. Was like stepping back in time in old England and was worth every penny. I believe rooms have undergone some renovations lately so have no complaints. Staff were friendly and helpful, and willing to chat. Continental breakfast had tons of choices so we didn't feel like we only had a bun and run like many others. Could have perhaps found hotel a bit more upscale than this, but the charm and comfort felt more like home. They even welcomed our pup! Definitely recommend this one!

Lots of charm

This is a very charmiing hotel. Has an old English style. The rooms were plenty large enough and the curtains made the room dark enough for sleeping. The location out of town gives it a country feeling. The continental breakfast was adequate, and the muffings were very good.
