Magnolia Hotel and Spa, Victoria, B.C.

Knowing we had to be in Victoria for medical reasons, I told my beautiful husband I would treat  him  to a evening at a nice hotel for his Father’s day gift from me and did I ever pick the right one.

From the time we went into the lounge and had a beverage while we were waiting for our room to be ready and when  we returned to Reception, we were told “thank you for your patience and your room has been upgraded to the best room in the house”, we felt at ease and welcome.

The best thing for me, after walking around the room is the fact the bathroom has a separate shower and a bathtub. This is so important for Seniors and/or those with mobility problems and they took that into consideration.

At the desk they asked where  we were going for dinner or could they give us a list of ‘staff picks’ of the better establishments, depending on the type of cuisine you wanted. We decided immediately where we were going and went up to our room to relax before going out.

When we got back to our room following our sumptuous meal, it was a wonderful feeling to find two beautiful lounge chairs with a large foot stool where we could sit and enjoy watching a bit of television. Most hotels/motels have one chair. Why? The decor of our room was done with great care and consideration of their clientele.

I am recommending this Hotel for sure if it is for a special occasion and you want to do it right.

Fairmont Hotel, Monte Carlo

Our final three days in Europe is staying at the Fairmont Hotel, Monte Carlo. This, my friends is top of the heap in beauty, quality, entertainment, Casino and a 6 million dollar view at breakfast.

The shop windows throughout the Hotel make you stop and you cannot believe what  you are looking at. Shoes that are out of this world and dresses…..WOW!

The cars outside are the world’s most expensive and are all under the eyes of security 24/7.

Word of advice…men are not admitted into the casino if they are not wearing long pants. They will stop you before you put one foot inside the doorway.

This is luxury at its best. The bedrooms are beautiful and ours was in a beautiful soft blue and white with yellow accents. It had a small glass topped desk with a lovely blue and white chair. A large television with choices in English that was a real treat. You can select any language they have on the screen and get to watch what you want, when you want.

Breakfast is on the 7th floor and the view……there aren’t enough words to describe that view….it is beyond stunning.

There is one thing that to me, is a drawback. It costs 19 euros per day for wi fi and, there is no place to set up your suitcase. Nothing! To me, in such a high end hotel, there would be.

On the positive side….they had an iron and ironing board. Yup! They did.

It is a wonderful hotel and if you can, you should try and stay here!
