Beach Hotel top place to stay

Oak Bay Beach Hotel ranked eighth in a list of the top 25 hotels in Canada for 2014

The Oak Bay Beach Hotel has been ranked eighth in a list of the top 25 hotels in Canada for 2014.

The list was compiled by TripAdvisor, an online travel website, from more than 190 guest reviews. The site also ranked the hotel number 21 in a list of the most romantic hotels in Canada.

Hotel manager Michelle Le Sage praised the hotel’s staff for achieving the honour. “We want to thank our guests for responding in such an amazing way during our first year of operation,” said Le Sage.

The seaside hotel reopened in the fall of 2012 after being completely rebuilt.

Victoria’s Magnolia Hotel and Spa was ranked No. 23 on the list and Toronto’s Trump International Hotel and Tower made the top spot. To see the full list, go to
