Recently took the ferry from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert and stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Very close to the ferry, which is great when you dock at nearly midnight. Even though it was very late when we arrived, the check in was done quickly and efficiently. Our room looked over the harbour so we could watch the eagles,... More

There is a herd of spastic lead-footed elephants running a bowling alley in the penthouse. If you get a room on the third floor, bad luck. Another reviewer said this was the proprietors. They need to move out to a place of their own, rather than ruin the stay of half their poor guests. There is also no ventilation available.

We are sorry you were disturbed during your stay here. Only a few of the third floor rooms are located beneath the penthouse and most of the time it is fairly quiet. At times, when guests are present rather than just the residents, there can be more noise than we like even though we do our best to keep it... More

This hotel overlooks the water so if you can, get a waterside room. Its modern and clean and the service is excellent. There's parking and an elevator and its an easy walk to the downtown core. The room was large and well appointed.

This is our second stay here and plan on going back. The room had the beautiful view of the harbour and we entertained by the deer, eagles and all of the activity on the harbour. Staff is always friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was more then enough for us. Even though we were a little worried when we saw... More

We stayed four nights in the wheelchair accessible room and everything met our needs. Their 1 accessible room is on the city side so less expensive than the water side. It's on the ground floor so no elevator to deal with. There are 2 queen size beds and there is wheelchair access to both. They are the same height as... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous ocean view and loved the binoculars! What a great idea. I loved that there was an actual blow dryer in the bathroom!

Clean, quiet, comfortable, nicely located near many restaurants, with big windows overlooking the harbour and even binoculars. Continental breakfast was well stocked and the staff was cheerful and helpful. We enjoyed our stay.

The hotel has an updated décor, minus the older desk that appeared to be missing a drawer? Although the hallway ceiling feels low, it felt adequately lit. The weather was warmer so there was a fan in my room (which I personally prefer over a/c). However that left only one unused plug in the entire room (in the bathroom), which... More

We felt very welcome, staff were extremely professional and found us the perfect room for the best price. Our view was amazing, the soaker tub was to die for and the breakfast was really refreshing!!!

They charge more for ocean views (which are probably worth it), but if you just want a clean and modern room the city side is great too. Simple continental breakfast (no hot food) was ok. But there was no AC in the room (3rd floor), and even with the window open it was still too warm.
