The bed in my room took up the whole room, there is no place to put clothes or bags/ luggage, (no closet, dresser), the hanging rack is placed directly over the bed, the walls are so thin I could hear every conversation that guest were having in the rooms on either side. The bathroom was dingy and dirty. For the... More

Hmm, I do understand disappointment happens when expectations are not met. It makes for an undesirable experience and we certainly did not want that for you. Rooms vary in size at our heritage hotel – from 150 sq. ft. “European” sized Comfort Rooms to our 450 sq. ft. Royal Suite with all the information about the rooms carefully described on... More

We always hope to find interesting old hotels on our road trips. Our first night on a trip from Seattle to BC, tired after a long day of driving around the Bellingham-Mt Baker area, we found the Royal Hotel, in the middle of the old downtown in Chilliwack. We were warmly greeted and shown a selection of rooms, and chose... More

Heritage Hotel is right. The smell as soon as we walked in was off putting. Stained sheets the first night and had to sleep on top of covers. Noisy from a/c and roof top heating and a/c. Light came in from hallway because of huge gap under door and from window above door covered with a flimsy valance. Toilet was... More

Wow, we sure didn't meet your expectations - or for that matter ours for your satisfaction. While there's some things that are simply part of what the hotel is - such as the view over the roof - sheets with stains and failure to resolve the toilet problem are ones that we can - and will - do something about....

Sight unseen we took a chance and booked a 2 night stay. Seemed the community was very busy this weekend. We used tripadvisor ratings and reviews to make our selection, we were not disappointed. A historic hotel in downtown Chilliwack with real wood floors that creak as you enter and climb the stairs, no elevator. The room was on the... More

Thanks for your comments - an accurate portrayal of who we are and the kind of experience we provide. Hmm, never thought that the creaks in the floor were part of the uniqueness, but I guess it is! Next time try the cafe as well. The food is great! More

Clean, comfortable and quaint. Stayed in thier comfort room my first stay and an antique room on my second stay. Both were adequate for my needs. A place to unwind, relax and get a good nights sleep. Located away from the freeway, on a oneway one lane road in the downtown.

Thanks for staying with us and enjoying the quiet, comfort and different experience that we so much enjoy providing for you. Yes the downtown does get you away from all the highway noise! Looking forward to your return. More

This hotel will not be everyone's cup of tea but it is mine. The staff are the kind of friendly that isn't corporate and slick but warm and lovely.

We loved the stay in our room with that outstanding historical ambiente. Everything was very clean and well selected. The staff was very friendly and a real good breakfast available. Especially we liked the bathtube.

Hotel in old stile with very friendly staff. Clean and nice room. Perfect staying on the way to Vancouver. Restaurant in the hotel for breakfast and/or diner. Located in a farmers town with a nice environment. Strange opening hours for some restaurants.

Thanks for choosing to stay with us and enjoying the cleanliness, ambiance and character of our hotel in Chilliwack's downtown. Our location just outside the busy Vancouver area does provide that change of pace, including the well known, fresh "Chilliwack corn" that is now available at farm vendors in the area.

We have stayed at the Royal 3 times this year for weekend visits with family in Chilliwack. The staff are very freindly and helpful. The rooms are clean and offer a nice change from the sterile and boring chain hotels. Claw foot tubs, antique wardrobes. Just a very nice boutique hotel with a heritage feel. Breakfast in the attached restaurant... More
