We came into Campbell River and had very little idea of what we were in for. Luckily we were pointed in the direction of Painter's Lodge. We enjoyed the fact that we were within driving distance to hiking trails, and that the free water taxi operated between the two resorts. Our room was comfy (compared to the place we had... More

Painters Lodge is our third hotel from 5 on a vacation to Canada. The room we had we felt was dated, which was our impression of the whole resort. Although the room was clean when we arrived the overnight service was just about OK. In our opinion it's the little things that make some average something great. For example, we... More

We really looked forward to this little escape. The area is gorgeous! The main building was very lovely. We found our room hadn't been totally cleaned. Dirty towels were left and when they came to get them I asked if the sheets had been changed....they weren't sure, so they had to do that too while we waited. It was a... More

We went to Campbell river for one night because we had never been. It was a gorgeous setting & so peacefull. We were lucky enough to be on the deck when one of the fishing trips came in with a 27 pound salmon. Took the 5 min. Water taxi to sister hotel, April cove. It was Tuesday jazz night with... More

I’m so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time at Painter’s Lodge. The fishing has been excellent so far this season. In fact, we just caught another Tyee (a salmon over 30 pounds) today. Hopefully next time you stay with us you’ll be the one bringing a big fish to the dock! I’m glad you also got to experience... More

We went on the 3 day 2 night fishing package that included 2 guided fishing trips. Enjoyed our stay. Caught some fish, good food in the pub. We found the dining room a bit pricey. Rooms were clean although they are getting a bit dated, maybe some new carpets and a spruce up but they were fine, two levels with... More

I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay at Painter’s Lodge. The fishing has been spectacular this year so I’m sure you left the resort with lots of salmon to take home! We are looking at upgrading our rooms in the offseason and we will take your comments under consideration. Thanks for the review and I look forward to seeing you... More

This is a very homey, old school kind of place in a really nice location. The day we arrived it was one of the hottest days in Campbell River history and there was no AC in our room. Ovherhead fan helped but still made for a difficult sleep. Staff is nice and the fishing packages make it easy to do... More

Stayed 2 nights with the family. Excellent hotel and superb setting along the water with its own pier where you can see the small fishing boots come and go or take your own fishing trip. The design of the rooms is not modern, but they are large and clean. The restaurant of the lodge is superb: excellent food, splendid view... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a 1-bedroom suite in their Redondo Lodge building. The hotel has a number of buildings containing the various rooms, spread over quite a large site. Our room on the second storey (ie UK 1st floor) had lovely views from the balcony over the water towards Quadra Island. Rooms in Redondo have the best... More

I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Painter’s Lodge. Yes, the views from the Redonda Building are spectacular. Although there isn’t parking right next to the building (since its right on the beach) there is a loading zone for you to unload your luggage, or our helpful staff are more than happy to deliver your luggage to...

I have given the general manager of Painter’s Lodge more than 48 hours to get back to me regarding our experience there, and no contact, so here’s my review of Painter’s Lodge.

We stayed at Painter's Lodge on the 2 nite mid-week special that included 4 hrs fishing. Including room and fishing costs and meals, we dropped close to $1,000. That should have resulted in a very superior experience, but it wasn't really. Rooms are fairly rustic but ok. Very poor sound proofing from the room above, so we were treated to... More
