I had a reservation at the Lodge for three nights; when I arrived to check in, there was no one to be found. I continued to check back over the course of the next 5 hours or so, When no one turned up, and with all my calls going straight to voicemail, I had no choice but to return to... More

We stayed with Dan for 2 nights in April and loved it! He was a great host, the room (Lady Alexandra) was comfortable and I loved the soaker tub. Dan went out of his way to make sure we loved the breakfasts, and gave local advice. The location was perfect, we walked into town often. Check out the some of... More

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of spending a week at this lodge and we absolutely loved it. It is a beautiful spot with a wonderful garden patio to spend time in or to just lounge in one of the many living rooms throughout the lodge. Our en suite bathroom came with an incredible soaker tub. The hospitality from... More

Dan is always the best of hosts. His gentle style and the excellent food make this our favourite "away" but still close to home escape from the city. This visit we learned more culinary tips and tricks. I have also stayed here on corporate retreats twice and Dan provides a full set of meals for those retreats. The great room... More

The old dorm is a great place to stay if you are visiting Bowen Island. The location is amazing and the host was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is delicious and we will definately be coming back!

What an amazing place!!!!! I have to admit we were recommended this place by a friend on Bowen who knows Dan, however this had not clouded our judgement on the b and b at all. You pull up and Dan is instantly there to greet you and make you feel welcome. We were shown around and shown to our beautiful... More

The Lodge at the Old Dorm goes beyond my expectations in terms of beauty and service. The host, Dan is extremely gracious and hospitable. My boyfriend and I were very fortunate to be accommodated by him after finding the B&B last minute. We were greeted by Dan as soon as we pulled in after taking the last ferry into the... More

The Old Dorm is a cozy, quiet B&B with lots of character. It's a ten minute walk from the village and a five minute walk to beautiful trails around Killarney lake. Don was very friendly and helpful and made us an unforgettable five star breakfast. We look forward to returning in the summer.

We stayed here on BC's Family Day Weekend. We have been here before but it was 12 years ago. Too long in between visits. We stayed in "The Lady Alexandra" room which is on the main floor. It has a King bed, with lovely sheets/down comforter. We had French doors which lead to a small private balcony. We had fresh... More

We recently celebrated a special birthday at this beautiful inn with 15 family members. We were warmly welcomed, served sparkling wine in the living room with a roaring fire in the background, had a delicious gourmet 3 course dinner in the dining room, then retired back to the living room to share some special family time. In the morning, we... More
