Four Points Sheraton Victoria Gateway

The Four Points Sheraton Victoria Gateway is a hotel located just off the highway beside Costco in Langford. When it was first built it seemed nestled in the trees a bit however development has been continuing in this area and there is now a small industrial plaza across from the hotel.

This location is popular for guests who are attending workshops at Royal Roads University and also for people who are biking or golfing at Bear Mountain. There is plenty of shopping and restaurants in the area with Millstream Village Shopping Centre just down the hill on the other side of Millstream Road.

Guest Comments

Overall guests rate the property as very good. They like the convenient highway location and were pleasantly surprised at how quiet the highway traffic was. Same can't be said for the construction noise though as construction continues in the area with 3 new apartment towers and an industrial plaza all being built across the street (2022). Guests did like the size and cleanliness of the rooms and features such as walk-in showers however were put off by the lack of clean linens (no daily linen service - must request clean linen when you want it). Even though the hotel boasts a kitchenette in every room, there was a surcharge to use a microwave ($10). Some guests found the parking to be insufficient for all the guests and found the room rates a bit of expensive.

I am busy preparing extensive reviews of each of the properties listed above and will post them as soon as possible. Please check back soon for updates.
