Christmas Is Here!

Posted in package By mark

The day has grown into an entire season so why not just enjoy it. One of the family traditions our family just loves is getting out to see the lights at Butchart Gardens.   It really is a spectacle to behold.  Our “Christmas is Here” package will make it easy for you.  Your room, transportation and entrance to the gardens is all arranged for you.  Just stroll across the street and pick up the CVS Christmas bus at 6:30pm and you are off for a little over 3 hours of visual wonder. Prices for the package start at $79.00 per person ($158.00 total), plus tax, based on double occupancy.

December 2nd thru to January 6th 2012
(excluding Christmas day and New Years Eve).
Extra transportation and entrance;  Adult = $54.50 Youth (13-17) = $38.25 Child (5-12) = $19.00

Note:  Children and extra adults can be added to the package but the on screen price will only show the adult price based on double occupancy.  We will confirm your total price for your entire group via email or phone.

Butchart Gardens at Christmas time

Welcome to a new way to communicate with you

Posted in About Us By mark

We are very proud to introduce our new website for the Chateau Victoria.  It joins two other new sites that we launched this fall. Clive’s Classic Lounge and Vista 18, our roof top restaurant and martini bar.   Our goal is to add to the great personal contact we already have with our guests.  Sure, the site is built to sell our bedrooms, suites and all the services we offer.  However, many of our guests look to us as the people who can help make the most of their stay.  Our goal is to become your local expert in all things Victoria and perhaps a little entertaining.   There is so much information at your fingers it is hard to figure out what to do, so we will try our best to help you.  At the moment, the site is mostly about us, but as we hear from you and learn from you, the content will become much more balanced.

So let the dialog begin.   Hit that comment button on this blog or the contact button at the bottom of the page and tell us what you think of our website.  Be sure to note what you would like us to add.  we will do our best to continue to build, what we hope will be,  a great point of reference in the months and years to come.  Your local experts.

We look forward to connecting with you.
