Reviewer says...
I lived in several places in Victoria and Lord Simcoe was my favourite. If I ever moved back to this city I would live there again. I have been inside and through virtually EVERY building in Victoria and this one was my favourite.

The soundproofing between suites is excellent. A friend of mine lived next door so I did some tests with my stereo at various volumes. I could get it pretty loud before the bass started to transmit, and this is with an audiophile-quality system.

The balconies are great. Kudos to the person who chose glass instead of aluminum railing. We used to sit on our couch and gaze at the ocean and mountains in the afternoon. Wonderful!

An actual grocery store across the street. It really doesn't get more convenient. I never knew how much I would love it until I had a couple glasses of wine and realized I was missing ingredients for dinner. So great.

Two liquor stores within a block. Need I say more?

The management is fantastic, in my experience. Maintenance is super friendly.

Parking is OK. Kind of a weird setup but perfectly acceptable, considering it really never snows in James Bay. Guest parking is way around the back but guests can only buzz through the front. Someone failed with that design!

The entrance is dated but nice enough.

The grounds are well kept. The heated pool is a bonus.

The laundry is mediocre. Older front-loading machines. They work OK but not great. Some tenants (everywhere in the world these people exist) leave the washing machine lids down after use which promotes bacteria growth and so certain machines will make your clothes smell funny. I never really had a problem finding enough unused machines when I wanted to do laundry though.

My only gripe would be the pub across the street tends to bleed obnoxious morons late into the night, and this can be a hassle when you are trying to sleep on a Thursday.
