Off the top I would stay here again but I think I would try the newer units closer to the water. The view from our balcony was lovely but the rooms had a bit of an 'old' smell about them. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and everything worked so I have no major complaints. I kept tripping... More

The Kingfisher is located in a prime location in between the beautiful cities of Courtenay and Nanaimo. You will find peace and relaxation. The Restaurant menu is gourmet and a real feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds. Not to mention the pool, hot tub and the steam room are so inviting. I'd recommend anyone this location for...

Every year in the dark days of winter a stay at the Kingfisher with all the amenities. I go back every year for my pick-me-up tonic. From the Hydropath to the food at the restaurant everything is what other resort should aspire to be. If you need to say thank-you to a special person this is how you do it!

We booked a last minute getaway directly with the hotel. The hotel gave us an excellent deal better then any of the posted rates online. We visited mid week staying in a standard ocean view room. The hotel room was average but very clean. The beds were comfortable and the view was beautiful. The bathroom was very nice with a... More

We stayed here for four days. It is a central location for day trips. It is very clean, with a great restaurant and incredible views. It was wonderful to lay by the ocean and watch the sun set on the mountains. Service was excellent!

My wife and I went there on a Travelzoo special which made it affordable. The Hydropath treatment was very relaxing and nicely laid out. Staff were very attentive and friendly both in the spa and the front desk. Room was small but bed and pillows very comfy. It was freezing outside and until we figured out the wall fireplace had...

We went to the Kingfisher Resort for a birthday celebration and enjoyed it all. We did the hydro path treatment at the spa, and enjoyed two dinners and brunch in the restaurant. The food was fantastic, the ambiance was warm and relaxing and the service was very good! Our room was cozy with a fireplace and a spectacular view of... More

This hotel/resort is literally by the water. The location and land is fantastic. They've left tall cedar trees grown around the property. The rooms are very spacious with big sliding windows for views. It's quiet, very green (trees and plants) and very blue (ocean). This place should really be called King Peaceful Relaxed Resort... The staff is very friendly and... More
