Stayed here on a whim, looking for someplace to chill away from TV, internet and hustle and bustle. For a 100 year old building with no appealing architecture was pleasantly surprised by a friendly accommodating staff, along with a clean room and a shared deck. Hotel supplied coffee outside the room in the morning, so we could sit and enjoy... More

The location, service, and food simply can't be beat. The staff members - Misty and Brian - went out of their way to make our stay great. The food in the restaurant is incredible with many vegetarian friendly options! The cabins were slightly dated, but were very comfortable and well equipped. The free WiFi seems to only work in the...

What a beautiful location for a hotel. A lovely sheltered bay with a marina, and very terminal. We stopped for a take way coffee and although the service was friendly and quick, the coffee was cold......

This was another great find for a hotel, I really enjoyed my stay here. The scenery here is incredible & the staff were very helpful & friendly. The rooms are clean but fairly old, the water pressure is a bit suspect at times, and there was just one small low level radiator in the room. I would imagine that the... More

What a picturesque place and the service can't be beat. Stayed there September 17th and 23rd. The front desk staff, Misty and Juanita, were amazing. Bartenders in the pub friendly and the baked oysters are fabulous!

Our room was tiny, very dated ( not historic just grotty) and noisy! The bar offered poor service and staff were rude. I would not stay here again and was highly disappointed that a beautiful location and building dud not live up to expectations.

Positives: - On the waterfront at the harbour - Restaurant and bar in the same building Negatives: - Price (for what you get) - Tiny rooms - Uncomfortable beds - No sound deadening between rooms - Useless showers Seriously, this is the worst place I have ever stayed at. We paid $140 for a room with a single double bed.... More

We LOVED the Heriot Bay Inn - this place made our trip to Vancouver Island. We stayed two nights, one night either side of a kayaking/camping trip and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You need to stay here - but don't expect amazing things from the rooms - the Inn is old, so the rooms are dated and a little uncomfortable,... More

This Inn has more history than this forum has room to except. We have stayed here on several occasions. It has both the original rooms and newer cabins.. The cabins are situated around the Inn and are either self contained or you can eat in the restaurant. On our last stay the management had a piano player for gentle listening,... More

We had the opportunity to stay at the Heriot Bay Inn in mid-June. We had the one-bedroom “Eagle” cabin, which has a nice view of the water through the trees over the parking lot. We were particularly happy that the cabin was pet-friendly, and our cat really enjoyed it. Given the remoteness and distance to urban environments (which is a... More
