Christmas greetings from Oak Bay, Victoria
If you've never stayed here, or never stayed here since they demolished the old Oak Bay Beach Hotel, I can highly recommend it. It has the charm of The Empress but without the overwhelming size. It feels much more intimate. The Snug is the local bar, established in 1954, and there is a very good dining room and common areas.
One of the reasons I am staying here is to get ideas for the resort hotel that will soon be developed as part of the new Furry Creek Community. It too will hopefully have the same intimate scale, very high standard of finishes, and personal service.
