We approached this meal with some trepidation for we had visited the same Inn about 3 years ago and agreed we would never return for the food was of poor quality as was the service. Our recent visit was light years away from our past experience. The food was great. While we only had lunch, the sandwiches were fresh &... More

I stayed here for just one night on a business trip. The hotel has obviously been upgraded recently and they have done a very nice job. The decor is very tasteful and the room was light, spacious, and airy. My room had a huge 50 inch TV and an incredibly comfortable bed and pillows. The room was very well done.... More

We happened upon this gem on our way from Comox to Nanaimo. We had planned to stay in Nanaimo and in fact we had a booking there. However, we drove through the Qualicum beach area and were taken with how pretty it was and the amount of activity going on. We decided to have a look to see if there... More

While visiting Vancouver Island for our 20th Anniversary, we had planned to spend a few more nights in Victoria, but boy, are we glad we didn't! We were so fortunate to head North and without reservations, happen across the Qualicum Beach Inn. The hotel, its staff, restaurant and surroundings are superb. We could not have asked for a nicer experience.... More

We are bicycle touring around the island. We have stayed in hundreds of hotels over the last few years and this hotel ranks in the top three. The positives: clean property and room, friendly staff, comfortable bed, good quiet a/c, good wifi, good water pressure in sink and shower, large HDTV with HD signal, good linens, refrigerator in room, quiet...

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
