Great food in the restaurants, watched seaplanes take off and land. Magical place to stay. Booked a salmon fishing expedition thru the front desk. Staff friendly, room clean except for some mold in the closet area.

We stayed 3 nights and they arranged 2 guided fishing trips. They suggested one of their 2 level lodge style rooms for our group of 3 guys to keep the cost down. The 2 beds downstairs are in the same room, but compared to the quarters we're in when we're tailgating (4 guys crashing in a 30ft RV) there was... More

We stayed for two nights primarily to take a Grizzly Bear tour from Campbell River. We booked an Ocean front room and stayed in Room 124 one of the signature rooms, Alan Wylie(Redonda building). The room had two queen beds, TV, fridge, coffee making and room fan no A/C so could be hot in summer. Bathroom was a very strange... More

We stayed at your establishment in August, sent an email and never received a reply. Since we have traveled there twice since then and stayed elsewhere I wanted to ensure you noted our feedback on our stay. I travel a fair bit and have stayed in many hotels. Upon our arrival the host was great. The resort itself was very... More

Painter's Lodge on the Campbell river in British Columbia is a fisherman's dream. I stayed with my father and brother for 3 days, and enjoyed every minute. This resort is A+ all the way. The rooms were very nice. Dinning was superb. Great meals, with a service staff that performed simply outstanding. We went for the salmon fishing. Wow, that... More

We spent one night here in late September and loved it. Front desk staff and bar staff were friendly and helpful. We ordered from the restaurant but ate in the bar area next to the window and watched the night come in over the water. The food was good, and the view was wonderful. We had much the same view...

Stayed for 3 nights in a waterfront room - very pleased we chose this option. The views over the water were amazing, with a constantly changing stream of boats from small private craft to tugs with loaded barges and huge passenger liners passing by. We also saw orca and a pod of dolphins right from our balcony. The furnishings were... More

Great location, great views if facing the water. We saw the Fall Special in the local newspaper – an excellent deal which included one night accommodation and dinner for two. Dinner was very good – my choice the ‘West Coast Fish & Chips’ – Halibut baked in a very tasty bread crumb topping and served on piping hot plates. Desert... More
