Very well equipped and great location little nose but to be expected as you are in city centre this is our 4th trip to the falls
Amazing location, a little bright and warm in the mornings
Several reviews have already mentioned that the east-facing windows mean an early morning unless you bring a sleep mask. The property has commented several times that they'll be installing blackout curtains, but they haven't yet. I'm a morning person, so it didn't bother me, but the other guests were frustrated by it.
Having said that, Danielle and everyone else we worked with were amazing and even helped us recover some personal items we left behind -- way above and beyond what I expected as far as service.
The pool and hot tub were closed, which had been deciding factors in booking this location vs a hotel, and that was very disappointing. The location, however, is perfect -- right in the heart of downtown. We walked everywhere -- to the legislative assembly, restaurants and bars, beach entertainment, everything.
Location is Amazing But...
Amazing Location of the Condo!! Easy walking to everything downtown! The Condo itself was beautiful and clean, well stocked. The new vinyl flooring is gorgeous. Staff with Elite were wonderful.
Negatives...the new blinds are nice, but they are not blackout. I am an early bird, but not a 5 a.m early bird. Plus, they also don’t keep out the bright lights from other buildings at night. You have read in other reviews about the noise from the Pub and bars directly across the street...well it’s very true! We brought ear plugs which mostly helped, so don’t forget yours!! The beds are really hard. This was so disappointing because after sightseeing all day, a comfortable sleep would have been very welcome. I would stay at The Falls again, but not in this unit unless they changed mattresses or added a cozy memory foam on top.
The Falls is a great location right down town close to everything. The building security is excellent. Parking is in a secured underground space. Our king bed was excellent very comfortable.
On Saturdays and Fridays would recommend wearing ear plugs for a good night sleep. Over all 8 out out 10.
The condo is in a great location. Fabulous views with the floor to ceiling windows. We were able to walk everywhere and didn’t end up using our vehicle the entire trip. It is loud on the weekend during bar hours as it is located right across the unit. Luxurious felt like a bit of a stretch in defining the property. The sheets in the master were very worn, the carpets were stained and the countertops in the bathroom were damaged and the sink didn’t drain properly. We also found coffee and grounds in the pot and weren’t sure when they were left from. A little bit of
maintenance and it would be luxurious again. The laundry, hot tub and pool were nice perks.
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. It certainly sounds like you took full advantage of what this beautiful city has to offer. I am pleased to report we are having the carpets replaced in the bedrooms and are working with the owner to ensure the repairs in the bathroom are completed. Along with the floors we are having black out blinds installed throughout the condo. I will certainly talk to my cleaners regarding the coffeepot - I do apologize that was missed!
Thank you again for your review, we hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future.
This apartment is in a perfect location for exploring (Downtown) Victoria. Practically everything you want is around the corner and within walking distance, including car rental offices.
The apartment itself is spacious, with good beds and easy-to-use appliances in good working order. Some points for improvement: one of the blinds in the dining area had come down and was rolled up on the floor, making us feel rather exposed in the evenings. The apartment would also benefit from more pleasant and practical lighting, like a reading lamp or table lamp in the living room, and ceiling fixtures in the bedrooms.
Another small point: being from abroad, the garbage disposal requirements somewhat mystified us. We hope we got it right in the end!
All in all, we had a great time in Victoria and we would certainly choose this apartment again, should we ever come back.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We really appreciate any and all feedback that can help us improve upon our guests stay. I am pleased to report we are having black out blinds installed through out the house - as well as new flooring! I can certainly ensure there are instructions for the garburator included in the manual.
Once again thank you for your time and we would love to host you again in the future!
All the best
