We recently stayed here for 2 nights, and we were delighted. Dan is a wonderful host, very accommodating, and an exquisite cook (his gourmet breakfasts were delicious). We stayed in the Lady Cecilia, with a view of the mountains and a bit of the water. There is a lovely garden in the back. We felt as if we were leaving... More

We recently stayed at this B&B for 10 nights. The rooms are clean, comfortable, nicely decorated either with shared or private bathrooms. The owner Dan is an amazing host and welcomes you to his charming property. Every morning Dan surprises you with a delicious breakfast beautifully presented. You are always made to feel right at home. We would recommend this... More

My husband and I just got back from a weekend at the Lodge and had the most fabulous time! The owner Dan is very professional and makes the most delicious breakfast! We felt right at home the moment we stepped inside. The property is very charming. We stayed in the Lady Alexandria suite on the ground floor and just loved... More

We came over to Bowen Island for business and were fortunate to get accommodation at The Lodge at the Old Dorm. Dan was very informative and extremely accommodating. We were caught up and did not start looking for dinner until 9:10pm. In the beginning of April, on a Tuesday evening, every restaurant and kitchen closes between 8 - 9 (pub... More

We stayed at the Lodge at the Old Dorm for two nights and were very impressed with everything. The Lodge is walking distance to the ferry, the house has been restored beautifully, and we had everything that we needed. Our room was perfect with a beautiful ensuite bath and allowed us to enjoy time alone or mingle with the other... More

We only stayed for one night at the Lodge but it was wonderful. Don took such care of us making us feel very special. We stayed in the Lady Alexandra room which was gorgeous. It has a very large soaker tub which is a definite plus after hiking the Killarney Lake earlier that day. The B&B includes free wifi, they... More

I was fortunate enough to get a reservation over the Christmas Holiday at The Old Dorm Bed and Breakfast. The location is perfect:10 minutes walk from the Ferry. The owner was very accommodating and went out of his way to make sure I had the privacy I had requested for my 2 night stay. I stayed in the Lady Cynthia... More

Man of the house Dan took us in at the last minute and was a very gracious host. Friendly and helpful to orient us during our first trip to the island Dan provided a welcoming environment for our first experience on Bowen Island. The house is 4 minutes from Snug Cove and close to the main strip as well as... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lodge at the Old Dorm. We stayed in the Lady Cecilia room. The room itself was quite small, but very cozy and comfy for the amount of time we actually stayed in the room. The ensuite bathroom was quite nice, too. We enjoyed some time on the lovely patio as well as in... More

Don and Julia made it a memorable stay. Rooms were bright, beautiful quality bed, food to write home about (just look at the wall of cookbooks). Walking distance to the ferry. We even had to leave early, but Dan made us a breakfast before we left. Really generous, and we can't wait to tell our friends.
