Over Hotel Zed
Hotel Zed is een hip en kleurrijk hotel net zoals de stad Victoria. Het is maar 5 minuten naar het centrum met de ‘67 VW shuttlebus van het hotel. Ook kunt u gratis een fiets huren en daarmee door de stad fietsen of de Galloping Goose trail volgen. Deze route neemt u mee op de Selkirk trestle een houten brug over de Gorge Waterway. Dit trendy hotel heeft een onder andere een LP luister hoek, zwembad met glijbaan en tafeltenniszaal. De kamers zijn net zo kleurrijk als de rest van het hotel en zijn voorzien van alle gemakken.
Hotel Zed ligt net buiten het centrum van Victoria.
• Buiten/buitenzwembad met glijbaan
• Hot Tub
Victoria ligt in het uiterste zuidoosten van Vancouver Island. Met de veerboot is het maar 90 minuten varen naar het op het vasteland gelegen Vancouver. De stad is vooral bekend vanwege de prettige Britse sfeer. De mooi aangelegde parken, de Victoraanse gebouwen en het stijlvolle parlementsgebouw dragen hierin bij. Victoria leent zich uitstekend voor het maken van een walvisexcursie.
Pros: The hotel has a groovy 1960-1970 feel. Rooms are spacious and clean. Free comic book, stickers and zed pencil in each room. Rooms have a fridge, flat screen tv, groovy telephone and lamps. Hotel staff is super friendly. The indoor /outdoor pool is clean and quite large. VW Shuttle is too cool. Lobby has some awesome stuff like typewriters (that are in terrible need of servicing ), working record player, games, cool items to purchase etc. Zed doesn't charge for hotel parking and there was lots of space to park. Inviting and warm feel to the place. Cons: there's a waterslide called the Zedinator but it's unsafe. My kids bumped their heads on the bottom and I tried it and so did I! The beds are uncomfortable (they could use a top foam), hot tub is small and a bottle of foam away is needed. Shuttle driver has many jobs to do so not his fault he was always running behind schedule. If you have kids 6 and under they won't allow them to use the shuttle, sadly.
First the staff at Hotel Zed were 5 out of 5, super helpful. The room was good and the beds we're comfortable. The bathroom was small and there's no air conditioning. We were in Victoria for a wedding so not a lot of time at the hotel.
This is exactly like every other dated motel room you have ever stayed in, with some fun features added to the property like the waterslide, vinyl listening station, typewriters, etc. But the rooms themselves are mediocre, with bathrooms that need to be completely replaced. The rooms near Douglass Street are quite loud as well. The staff was great and really helped us out of a jam when our ferry was cancelled. It was something different for us, but we wonâ€™t be back.
"A pop of colourful fun"
Cool hotel that was a hit with the kids, featuring bright retro decor. Lobby is the smaller building nearest the KFC in the parking lot. Green, orange and purple dot the property and instantly you see the Zedinator waterslide which extends to outdoors. The warmed pool, hot tub and deck (upper) & sauna/change rooms (lower) are segregated and card accessible only. Laundry rooms has W & D as well as iron w/board (detergent/softner can be purchased at front desk). Rooms are small but tastefully decorated. Luggage fits neatly in a corner, under wooden bench or closet space as little room for much else. Bathrooms are a 45 degree angle entry as door cannot open all the way and would hit the tub if not for the door stop. Nice fixtures & in additional to mini hygiene items, there's an in-shower dispenser that has green tea shampoo (absolutely love this!!), creamy conditioner and fruity body wash. There's a switch beside the light that turns on this heat-generating fan, I guess to keep you warm on exiting the shower. The one with the timer is the one you want to whisk away any unpleasant bathroom odors. Guests can enjoy free hot beverages to the left of receptoin as well as the use of the microwave. Lobby has listening booth, typing area, sitting area and board games. Lower level has 2 ping pong tables, 2 TVs and 2 Wii stations. Great for everyone. Bicycles, long boards are free rentals. Shuttle to downtown needs to be booked 30 minutes in advance. Approximate times to downtown...drive 8 mins, bike 15, walk 30. The establishment makes noticeable effort to promote recycling and environmental consciousness. The staff are friendly and accommodating. This is not Disneyland but definitely a fun visit for all ages. My only gripe is that although I enjoyed the stay all the colours of the rainbow could not justify the cost. No breakfast or microwave.
"Quirky fun Motel"
This motel was a really fun part of our holiday. We all really enjoyed it. Nicely decorated rooms. A splitscreen VW campervan to take you downtown and free bikes to go on the Goose Trail into Victoria. The old fashoined typewriters were a really fun touch. Make sure you book early for the shuttle bus and the bikes. The other reviews said the noise in the rooms was bad but we found it OK. The cleanliness was excellent. Very quirky and very nice.
