Merry & Bright

A very special overnight package for Vancouver Island residents only! Where else can you stay in a coastal castle over the Christmas season that is decorated and adorned with more than 7500 ornaments and lights, dine in storied spaces where royalty once dined, fall asleep enveloped in 112 years of iconic history and wake to Victoria's stunning Inner Harbour – all without leaving your backyard?
