“Friendly and helpful staff.Great buffet in the Bengal lounge with fast,polite and friendly staff.Hotel oozes colonial charm,especially the Empress and Bengal rooms.Comfortable room with a great view of Parliament and the harbour.Will go again.” – Mr S.Hart

a classic CPR hotel

“It was a pleasure to stay at the Empress one more time. It is usually too expensive for us but just this once we spent the money and enjoyed the pleasures of the old hotel. The room was okay, not marvelous but certainly up to the mark. It is the hotel itself and its location that makes it so special. The Indian buffet at the Bengal Room is good. Not the best Indian food we have ever eaten but…” – Bob and Edna

Not the best Indian food we have ever eaten but certain very tasty and of a good quality. But it was the gin and tonics earlier in the day that helped make our stay memorable. A lovely stay. ”

  • Hotel Review

    “As you can appreciate Butchart's Gardens was on our 'bucket list'. The Fairmont Empress should have been as well. It was a remarkable experience in every way and we look forward to a return engagement.”
