Helm's Inn - Snowbirds

Victoria has a wonderful moderate climate that usually offers snow free living year round. This is one of the many reasons that the Helm's Inn has become a favourite winter destination for Snowbirds escaping colder climes elsewhere.

We are a small friendly hotel located one block from Victoria's exciting Inner Harbour and Downtown. Adjacent buildings house the Royal BC Museum and National Geographic's Imax Theatre The nearby BC Legislative Building provides an ongoing comedy in action for guests with an absurd sense of humour.

Our central location offers the opportunity to abandon your car and walk to Victoria's intriguing shops, sites, attractions and quaint restaurants. All forms of transportation to and from the Helm's Inn are easy and readily available.

Helm's Inn guests enjoy a 100% smoke free environment. Our rooms have been recently redecorated and refurbished with quality furniture, bedding and beds. All our rooms offer plush duvets, colour cable TV, direct dial telephones (local calls are free), refrigerator, microwave oven, coffeemaker, a teakettle and much more. Studio suites come equipped with an efficiency kitchenette for those who prefer to prepare their own meals.
