Auberge Victoria: What Every Traveller Needs to Know

Enjoy a welcoming home away from home atmosphere at Auberge Victoria.

Auberge Victoria was once the groom's cottage for Craigdarroch Castle and was formerly known as The Postern Gate Inn. It boasts well-appointed suites in a home setting. The property is managed by the owners. If you are looking for the hustle and bustle of downtown, this is not the location for you. Auberge is located in a quiet, residential neighbourhood for those seeking rest and relaxation. That definitely doesn't mean you are in the middle of nowhere though! Guests at Auberge enjoy nearby attractions such as the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and the Craigdarroch Castle. And for a beautiful stroll through well-manicured gardens be sure to add nearby Government House to your list of must-sees while in Victoria

For nightlife, the Inner Harbour and downtown shopping you are just a scenic 10-15 minute walk away. The idyllic location of Auberge Victoria makes it one to consider for your next visit to Victoria. 

For accessibility purposes, note that there are two steps to get into the house and may be more steps depending on the suite. There are no elevators at Auberge Victoria.

Guest Comments

Overall guests note that the property is clean and well maintained with friendly, helpful hosts. They like the privacy of the suites, quiet residential neighbourhood and the close proximity to areas such as Cook Street Village. Some guests cautioned about the steep ladder to the sleeping loft in the cottage and parking was a challenge for some also.
