of our establishment and hopefully they will guide you in

thought taken over sleeping arrangements. We will recommend
the Helm's Inn to our travel agent and others.

is even better! We love it!"

Helm's Inn to anyone I know who was coming to Victoria!"
(Mrs. M. W. from Brockville, Ontario)
"We appreciate the "over the top" housekeeping service - It
feels rather "homey!!!". Obviously some one is in charge
of the details. Thank you."
(Phyllis and Heather Mc. From Chilliwack)
"There are plenty of times when I have paid twice the money
for half of what you get at this Inn."
(Patrick G. from Portsmouth, New Hampshire)

Inn! Besides being such an amazing location, this is such
a charming, homey, beautifully kept place with obviously
very high standards. There is so much attention to detail & all
in great taste."

"We found that there was much attention to detail and were
most impressed with the standard of accommodation. Definitely
our favorite stop over in our 3 weeks in Canada."
(Mr. and Mrs. & Sally W. from N.S.W. Australia)
"We just finished staying at Helm's Inn for two weeks. Things
couldn't have been better. Everything was perfect; from the
helpfulness of the staff, the beautiful clean room with well
stocked kitchenette, the fresh flowers, the afternoon tea.
Everything was just perfect. We will certainly return. Thanks
(Judy S. from Kanata, Ontario)
(Steve M. from Kansas City, Missouri)
"We have traveled to a lot of different countries & a
lot of parts of Canada + U.S. + the little extras are important
i.e. face wipes, real milk, free internet in the Lobby, guest
laundry, magazines in Lobby; very few of things are available
in similarly priced accommodations. So far the best accommodation
we have had on the west Coast + probably east Coast too!"
(Pam H. and Jon A. from Perth, Western Australia)
"We always look forward to staying with you. This time prior
to going to Victoria General Hospital for a major operation,
we chose to stay with you rather than closer to VGH, knowing
we'd be comfortable. Thank you!"
(Dewrys R. from Parksville, B.C.)
(Aviad and Tsipi P. from Tel-Aviv, Israel)

Inn was the perfect place to stay. Thanks for everything!'

very clean rooms, very comfortable, were not enough, your
staff is not only courteous but extremely friendly as well.
It is nice to find a happy smile along with the information
(Mr. A.F. from Rialto, California)

about your wonderful Inn."
(Mrs S. F. from Los Angeles, California)
"Thank you so much for the lovely stay at your Inn. Over
the years we have stayed at more than a dozen hotels in Victoria.
The Helm's Inn is the only one that we will return to! Fresh
air through screened windows, a firm mattress, an excellent
kitchen are amenities we need & appreciate not to mention
a quiet atmosphere and lovely décor. Thank you! "

"A great value for us. Having a kitchen and the location
is great for walking to downtown."

week long stay in the Pacific Northwest. I would recommend
this hotel to those travelling in the area. Your advertisements
do not adequately convey how nice your hotel is."
