Walking into the lobby of The Royal Hotel, I felt like I was walking back in time. Built back in 1908, this historic bed-and-breakfast hotel is unique which is what I was looking for. Old photos adorn the walls showcasing the history of the building; antiques and artifacts in the lobby. It is rare to find this combination of character... More

We stayed in the jacuzzi suite and it was fantastic! Clean, overlooking Wellington, we were just so impressed we can't wait to stay another time. Why would you stay at a chain when you could stay at a Heritage Boutique Hotel? My kids are begging to go back. I love the old doors, the decor, the fantastic wood floors. The... More

The hotel is very well maintained and is a charming show-case of the building's history. I enjoyed walking the stairs, admiring the old photos and artifacts, and the claw-foot tub. The breakfast offered at the downstairs bistro was amazing, extremely sizeable, and very good value. And the staff were very friendly and polite.

Reception staff were fantastic, helpful and chatty. Location was great and close to big supermarket. Maid service a little average (sorry i like my coffee, cups and creamer refilled daily) although they were very lovely themselves. Room size was awesome. I found bed a little uncomfortable although my friend was ok with it.

Thanks for your comments. The downtown location is great including also the unique shops and eateries all within easy walking distances. Just a great place to explore. Not sure what happened with the coffee and supplies refilling, because of course that should be done daily during your stay - our apologies. We'll follow up. As to bed firmness sleep preferences,...

This heritage hotel is located in the older part of Chilliwack .. Don't let it's location or inexpensive rooms scare you away. We stayed in a heritage room with a claw foot tub in the room .

Nice hotel, friendly staff, the food and pies downstairs in the Royal Cafe are great! Only issue... the bad singing in the pub downstairs during karaoke night :D They also have a communal fridge near the rooms, which is handy (nothing in the rooms themselves).

Ahh, yes, those pies! You can imagine working here and what it does for the waistline...? Glad you enjoyed your stay. (By the way, in those few guestrooms hearing the pub music, we continue to work to mitigate any sound from it.) It certainly was our pleasure to have you stay with us.

I had higher hopes when I arrived and saw the vintage property with antiques and old original floors in the lobby. Staff were friendly and helpful as well. The room, however, was disappointing. I suggest paying extra for the larger rooms that advertise clawfoot tubs. We took the lesser priced room and it honestly felt like a prison cell. Industrial... More

My husband and I stayed in the Royal Jacuzzi Suite. The suite was large and spacious. The bed was quite comfortable and the room was clean. The room has excellent views and we were able to see our car parked outside in the front. We loved the Jacuzzi tub and the relaxing atomosphere of the room. It was nice to... More

Good to hear that you enjoyed your stay as "royalty" in the Royal Suite. Glad that you enjoyed the elegant features and character decore of the room along with the extra tub and space. Sleeping in a new location certainly has its new sounds. The restored wood floors in the corridors contribute to an "alive" sound throughout and some of... More

It all looked good on paper but the reality exceeded expectations. Chilliwack is a great stopoff half a day from the winelands on the way to the Island. Heritage is exactly the right word and the staff could not have been more helpful. Location right downtown but very quiet and we were directed to a fine restaurant a few minutes... More

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
