We stayed in one of the heritage rooms and it was exactly like the professional photos on the website. I loved the century stylings: even the 2.5' x 2.5' "toilet closet" and the clawfoot tub right in the room. The wood in the hotel is gorgeous. The bed was mostly comfortable, but if you are very fussy about the firmness... More

Thanks for your review - enjoyed reading it. Thanks for your affirmation that the web site correctly shows what the hotel and the experience of staying with us will be. When the rooms were re-done to the current layouts, creativity was required and hence the unique configuration in some guest rooms with claw foot tubs and 'toilet closets'. The rich... More

Stayed recently in queen room with clawfoot tub, very quaint yet updated with modern heating/cooling, internet, high water pressure. Rooms was spacious, clean and peaceful. Staff were friendly and gracious. Keurig drink machine was a neat novelty.

I loved the creakiness of the floors, the claw foot tub, down quilt, comfortable pillows, and transom windows above the doors. It made me feel as if I was going back to another era. The room was super clean, and the beds comfortable. I recently moved to the Chilliwack area and have eaten in the hotel restaurant several times on... More

Combine one of the best prices for a hotel in Chilliwack, great customer service, a comfortable place to stay, and a cool old hotel experience, and you have the Royal Hotel. Loved the old flooring, the high ceilings, and the ambiance. One anecdote to illustrate something about this hotel. It is an older building so the window was rattling a... More

Although the hotel was an older building, my hotel suite was nicely furnished. The smallest rooms are smaller than other suites I have stayed at but also more affordable and the room felt clean. The concierge team was friendly and accommodating. The hotel is located in a convenient location (i.e. downtown Chilliwack). Of the three other hotels/inns I have stayed... More

Thanks for providing your comments. Getting excellent value is so important - thanks for affirming for us that we are on the right track. Impeccable cleanliness should be the standard; the downtown location does provide for some excellent opportunities for shops and eateries, including the café and pub at the Royal. Being the older building that it is with it's... More

This is a lovely old hotel but with a very comfortable bed, great pillow choices, duvet & immaculate bedding. I'm particular about bedding and really appreciated the cleanliness and comfort offered at the Royal. The staff members were super helpful and all went the extra mile. The bath arrangements were a little unconventional compared to standard hotel bedrooms but quite... More

So much appreciated your review. Thanks for enjoying the old charm, cleanliness and comfort. Enjoyed your comment about the interesting bath arrangements - it's what was required to make the old come to be what we like to enjoy and live with today. Yes, unconventional, but part of the character of the Royal. Do come back soon. More

Hotel located in the old part of downtown. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food at the Royal Cafe was very delicious and very reasonably priced. The only downside the cable television had only a limited number of channels.

Thanks for staying with us and providing your careful comments about your experience. We do enjoy having guests stay with us and the good value at the café - both the quality and the price - just add to a good experience.

I recently returned from a fishing holiday in BC and I had the pleasure of staying at the Royal Hotel. The interior was like no other hotel I have stayed in, a real throwback to colonial times, with wood paneling and decor.

This building has been remodeled but has kept some of the original fittings such as clawfoot bathtubs. Clean and spacious. No elevator but that did not inconvenience us at all. The front desk staff were very helpful, pleasant and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again. Location very central.

Thanks for providing your review and enjoying the experience of staying with us. Actually, the claw foot tubs are part of the remodel. When the hotel was built, the only bathroom facilities were common "down the hall" type facilities! But the claw tub does reflect the period of the hotel. The central location to downtown with the cultural and sports... More
