    The hotel was quaint but fully upgraded. I liked the modern kitchenette, location to downtown Victoria and beautiful James Bay area

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The staff was really kind, and the room was excellent. Full equipment for cooking, very clean bathroom. Highly recommend.

    Our room was just beside the street but the street was not very noisy. And it was park view. we were very tired after city tour so we slept very well.

  • Family with children

    I very much enjoyed my stay at the Helm's Inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful. For example, when my internet connection didn't work anymore after the first night, they did their very best to make sure it wasn't a problem on their side... and it turned out it was my laptop...The room that I stayed in with my 19-year old niece was very clean and comfortable, including a fully equipped kitchenette (at no extra cost), iron and ironing board and flat screen TV. It was VERY clean and 5 - 10 minutes walking distance from the Inner Harbor and downtown. My niece could go out on her own when she wanted and had no problem finding her way back. I also loved that Beacon Hill Park and the ocean was only a few minutes away. A perfect location.

    Real value for money. Well equipped kitchen with modern facilities.

    Absence of a lift, and having to walk up to the 3rd storey apartment with 2 heavy suitcases.

    A very pleasant friendly atmospherein a great location.Thank you for the very pleasant stay.It wasn't my first visit and definately won't be my last.

  • Family with children

    The staff was great. Very helpful and always pleasant. The location was excellent.

    The only thing I did not like was the fact this hotel has three buildings that are not connected and the building I stayed was not monitored. Anyone could have entered by following a guest. For women travellers, I would recommend to ask for the rooms in the main building.

  • Older travelers

    Wonderful location. Friendly staff.

    Housekeeping was very late with our room one day to the point we told them to skip it and just give us some towels. Bathroom was very small.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    location was great. cleanliness was good and room rates were very reasonable.

    there was no laundry bag. and no restaurant within the inn for snacks or drinks.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The value of Helms Inn is outstanding. Very nice, remodeled rooms, nice linens, kitchenette and location is great - in the middle of everything. Staff very helpful.

    The only thing we didn't like was the pillows.....would be nice to have a choice of styles.....firm or soft. Also, we are used to a continental breakfast being offered at most hotels and having at least muffins and fruit offered would be nice. Did appreciate the coffee.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    It would be best if the floor of the rooms were carpeted and the doors were hydraulicly closed to minize the noise made by other guests.

    Staff were very helpful and friendly. Booked a whale watching trip at late notice for us which wasnt a problem at all for them. Stayed in a king room which was really nice.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Friendly counter staff who were very welcoming and helpful about the city.The lobby was well appointed and we were made to feel at home.It was a short but wonderful stay.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    A friendly hotel in the city center of Victoria close to the Royal BC Museum and other attractions. Rooms are comfortable with a small kitchen and sitting area. The staff is friendly and helpful. No breakfast provided, but there are lots of places to eat within a block or two. Free WiFi. Recommended.

    Minor things, such as some of the younger staff not knowing where important facilities in Victoria are located (probably summer students), no breakfast provided (but there are cookies and free coffee and tea in the lobby and rooms).
