This lobg time hitel went through a year long renovation under new owners and is now excellent tourist accomodation on Vancouver Island. The restaurant as well has been totally redone in an Old Hollywood style and includes outside seating with views if the Ocean across the street. Food is pricey compared to the orevious hotel on this site but overall... More

Very arrogant staff in restaurant and the manager is a light weight who has no idea about customer service . Food and chef is great ... Management terrible. No understanding that there are many other dining options in the town, do the owners know the jewel they could have if the business was run more effectively .

Build your Benny is on the menu & a seafood Benny with shrimp & salmon. Well if the shrimp wasn't the tinies little things you ever saw ( I think maybe canned) & slivers of lox, truly cut into little strips. And this was no generous portion believe me. O & if you want gluten free good luck with that.... More

When this place opened it was my. 'Go to' favourite . Over the past couple of weeks the quality of the staff has deteriorated to the point where I personally have walked out without ordering and on another recent occasion so has a friend. The staff are ignorant, rude, lack service skills and product knowledge. It will be a long... More

I gathered with some friends for a surprise birthday get together at the Qualicum Beach Inn. The service was great and the ambience was wonderful. Next time, I will request to dine on the outside patio as the view of the beach is superb. One suggestion would be to incorporate a small jazz band to complete the Rat Pack feel!

Enjoyed my overnight stay at this recently restored hotel, excellent rooms and decor, nice restaurant bar area, but rather small pool area, and at a busy location, but please do not let this put you off as would use again if in the area.

Recently renovated motel in a great location across from the beach. Rooms are very clean and fresh, patio doors and comfortable beds. The hotel has a nice restaurant with outdoor patio, a very small pool and a hot tub. Good access to everything Qualicum Beach has to offer. The one negative for me were the thin walls. Could hear the... More

I checked in Qualicum Beach Inn on Sunday night at a fancy tariff of $250/night. I had the worst experience ever staying in any hotel perhaps other than some hotels in Asia, where I paid probably $5/night. The bottom line was that I hardly slept, my back was hurting the next day and when I asked to talk to a... More

We were recommended the restaurant at the Inn and we were so pleased we went. The food was delicious and the sunset we viewed whilst eating was magnificent. Would recommend going at 8pm and get a seat in the window. Would go again if we ever come to Qualicum Beach in the future.

We went to the Qualicum Beach Inn for supper and then again for lunch the next day during our stay in the are and must say the food is amazing and very reasonably priced. Their pizzas are to die for! Must visit this restaurant, you don't be disappointed!
