I am staying in the hotel at the time of writing this review. While the hotel is decent, I can not stand lies I have been fed while booking it. First of all - nowhere was there a mention that I will be an outcast in a separate building. That nice heated pool on the picture is true, but what... More

Was looking forward to a one night in the Ole House. We are renovating our home and just needed a get away from the mess night. I specifically asked for a river view. Of course being two women (married and older) they stuck is in a odd shaped room that overlooked the hot pool. Yah. I queried the desk clerk... More

We needed a Ladies Spa weekend away- To be honest we usually book Kingfisher Spa. When looking at booking a nice dinner, I came across Locals which had "Spa Packages" posted on their site. I saw the amazing deal for a ladies weekend which was much more affordable than Kingfisher!! I booked the 4 of us in for the ladies... More

I came to stay in the Old House with three kids on a ski vacation weekend from Victoria. We chose the Old House because of the heated outdoor pool, and it certainly did not disappoint. My kids LOVED the pool under the night stars with steam floating up into the cold air. The suite itself was spacious and comfortable. The... More

The Old House is an upscale place to stay year round. Close to Mount Washington in the winter and all the island activities nearby in the summer. The standard room was large and included a small sofa to have a seat and relax.

No complaints on the location, the penthouse suite was well laid out and quiet. The bed and linens were quite comfortable. While it did not deter us, I did find the unit a bit shabby and in need of some paint, bamboo floors on the main level need to be replaced. Our suite was not in the main building so... More

I visit this hotel frequently as I travel to Courtenay on a bi-weekly basis. This is a great location to relax and chill. I have never gone to the pool but it looks beautiful. It's on a fantastic path for jogging in the warmer months. Most staff is very nice and friendly. Rooms are very clean and of great quality.... More

We booked this place on a whim because we went on a spontaneous vacation with the kids to Mt. Washington and this place was perfect. We stayed in a suite and it had a lot of things you wouldn't expect.. like a full kitchen, a washer dryer, big closets, a pull out bed in the living room. It was SUPER... More

Stayed one night in a King room overlooking the river and was very comfortable. Wifi worked well. Rooms are large, well decorated and thoughtfully laid out to maximize space & comfort. The small kitchen was welcome really; travelling on business it's nice to have some healthy snacks at hand.

We were accessing the Mount Washington area for winter activities and stayed in Courtenay instead of on the mountain. We were within easy driving distance of Mt. Washington facilities. The Old House proved to be an excellent choice. The room was large with fireplace, kitchenette, balcony, easy chairs, and eating table. The hotel also has a hot tub and pool.... More
