Guest Book

This is our 3rd stay at the Mermaid Wharf (City Harborside Suite) but our first stay with City Life Suites. I have to say, this one was THE best.

First, working with City Life Suites was wonderful. They pay careful attention to all details to make sure your trip to Victoria goes smoothly. A nice welcoming touch is the fruit, bread and milk provided to get you started when you first arrive. In meeting with them on check out, you could tell that they genuinely care that you enjoyed your stay and didn't encounter any issues. They take pride in their apartment and ask for feedback to improve the stay for future guests.

The apartment was exceptionally clean, well laid out for efficient use of space, had plenty of storage space and had a fully equipped kitchen though we didn't use it as there are so many wonderful restaurants within walking distance (and we were visiting relatives). Our favorites were the Canoe Club (steps away from the building) and John's (good for breakfast).

It felt like the apartment was either recently remodeled or very well maintained as everything seemed new. The pictures posted accurately reflect the apartment. The location is perfect as you can walk to downtown: Chinatown is just a block away, walk across the Johnson street bridge to the Galloping Goose trail and the view of the harbor is right out the window!

We would definitely stay here again when visiting Victoria!

City Harbourside Suite - THE best!

Me and my girlfriend just spent 10 fantastic days in this perfectly located appartment. - the city harbourside suite is just 1 min walk to the nicest pubs and stores - View from the living room over the water - roof terrace incl BBQ open for everyone - kitchen equipped with everything one might long for (incl sharp knives) - the whole apartment was amazingly clean - very comfortable bed - friendliest hosts we met so far.  Whatever you expect, you´ll find it there! Should we ever come back to Victoria, this would be the place we would come to.

City Harbourside Suite - Whatever You Expect, You’ll Find It There

November 06, 2012

We recently visited Victoria for a week to visit our son. It was somewhat of a family reunion because our daughter also went along and we hadn't all been together for a few years.

On recommendations from close friends, we contacted City Life Suites and ended up staying in the City Panorama Suite which is a 2 br, 2 bath condo on the 18th floor of a very clean and secure building. We had a wonderful time and the City Panorama Suite was perfect. We felt very much at home. It was very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable and includes a designated indoor parking spot. It has a fully equiped kitchen where we prepared our breakfasts and a few family dinners.

The location is ideal because it's only a couple of blocks from the Inner Harbor and all the main tourist attractions. The owners were there to meet us when we arrived and showed us all the features of the building and the condo. We had a wonderful time and will definitely stay with them next time.

City Panorama Suite- clean, nicely decorated, comfortable

In September my Mom and I travelled to Victoria. It was my Mom's first real adventure in 70 years. Our stay at the Metro Suite helped her to feel comfortable away from home.

Steve and Trish put such a personal touch into their units that you feel right at home. It is nice that the unit is so close to the main tourist attractions in Victoria. You can park your car in the underground secured parking and walk to most of the popular attractions, one being the inner harbour.

The unit is well stocked with everything that you need, including the added touch of the fruit basket, bread, milk and butter. I also find it very convenient to have the washer/dryer unit located in the suite.

My stay in the Metro Suite in September was my second stay with City Life Suites and just like the first time I was very pleased with our stay. I will for sure be booking with them again during my next stay in Victoria.

Metro Suite - Wonderful Stay! Again!

November 06, 2012

Three of us stayed in the Metro Suite for a week and it was the perfect spot to come home to. Tasteful decor, comfortable beds, convenient in-suite laundry and secure parking all contributed to making the stay so enjoyable.

The owners provided many thoughtful details, from outfitting the kitchen with every possible amenity, to stocking the fridge with "starter" groceries and a welcome bowl of fruit. They were also very helpful with suggestions on restaurants and tour companies.

The location couldn't be better for seeing the sites....close to downtown, the inner harbour and Beacon Hill Park.
We would be very happy to book here in the future.
