We were very happy to book this B&B very last minute. The hosts were very efficient & welcomed us. We enjoyed the hot tub after a great day in the sun. The shower was very refreshing and washroom roomy. The room was adequate and comfortable however the bathroom floor needed a good dust as well as the ceiling fan and... More

Stayed here in August of 2013, very accommodating hosts. Came back after a hard day Kayaking! Watched the Sunset whilst having a drink on the decking then chilled in the hot tub. Woke up to a a four course breakfast including a Smoothie, Yogurt, Blueberry Pancakes with sausages and then Coffee! Will definitely be heading back here in 2015!

The Arcturus Retreat B&B is a perfect place to get away for a weekend. Our room was comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and the hosts were very knowledgable about the area in helping us find things to go see and do. It sits right above Horseshoe Bay and we enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the ferries and other... More

Thank you for your note. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in British Columbia. As former prairie kids ourselves, looking at Howe Sound and the Pacific Ocean never gets old. Please come enjoy our deck again someday. More

We were warmly greeted, made to feel at home. The accommodations were very attractive, and we felt pampered. The breakfast crepes were delicious and the views are outstanding! Wish we could have stayed longer, but alas the ferry at the bottom of the hill was waiting for us! Would definitely stay here again.

Dirty towel on bathroom floor the night we arrived!!! We told them on the last day and this was the response: we though it was yours. Interesting!!!! Check and clean everything before you allow guests in. And tge breakfast was enough for a young child, not adults. We do not recommend the place.

Thank you for your comments. We appreciate feedback on your experience at our B&B and strive to correct any shortcomings in our service. As we noted with your partner, the towel left in the bathroom should have never happened, and we were embarrassed that we had missed it. It must have been a cleaning towel accidentally left behind and then... More

Brilliantly positioned for the final ferry trip across to Horseshoe Bay. A welcoming, comfortable and friendly environment delivered by enthusiastic hosts. We made use of the hot spa which was a bonus after following recommendations for an evening meal. Our room was very comfortable and spacious with everything you needed.

Arcturus is just what a b&b should be: a clean and private room with an ensuite in a big house with hosts who strike the right balance between discretion and friendliness. The owners, a young personable couple, care about this place and it shows. Everything is clean and modern and well-considered. All three guest rooms are good and the common... More

Thank you for the kind words. We enjoyed visiting with you and the other couple travelling with you. It's always more fun when a group can enjoy together...whether it is drinks on the deck or late-night card games. We are very sorry that our neighbors decided to overzealously entertain the evening of your stay. Usually, this is a very peaceful... More
