Room was clean and comfortable, if a bit dated but there was evidence of refurbishment going on, staff were helpful and polite, and all the rooms overlook Hardy Bay. Most people would be staying here to catch the ferry to Prince Rupert or after getting off the ferry. Room price was high when compared with other hotels on Vancouver Island,... More

Port hardy is not big with limited choices. The room was clean with water view. The one and only restaurant is very limited, nothing for vegeterians. It's really too bad. The room was cold and took a while to warm up. There are many workers stay here on the Friday night which was a bit noisy.

We did not stay here, but we had a beautiful sald in the restuarant one afternoon. Service was good and the food was really good. The waiter told us it was a new chef and he enjoyed trying new things. It showed. The place is very dated and in need of redecorating which they may be doing. Things were sorta... More

We had randomly decided to visit Port Hardy and asked at a local gas station for a hotel/motel recommend. The Glen Lyon Inn was the only suggestion and the cashier said we should ask for the 'Jacuzzi' room! We arrived at the hotel and they had vacancies = $90 for a regular room, $150 for the "Jacuzzi" suite. We went... More

My friend and I stayed overnight in order to catch the North Coast Water Taxi out of Port Hardy the next morning at 8 am---the first leg of our 7.5 hike of the North Coast Trail. This worked out well for us because the Marina was one block away, the motel restaurant opened early (6:30 am) and we also had... More

I have nothing but praise for this hotel. All of the rooms have a view of the working harbour and the hotel is placed not more then a few feet from the high tide mark. There is always somethin to watch and enjoy from the balcony. On our last visit, Pink Salmon were swimming by in large numbers as they... More

Spent one night here after getting off the very late ferry from Prince Rupert after my accommodation of choice was fully booked. Although the exterior of the building looks like a dated motel, we were very pleasantly surprised as we had a lovely big clean en-suite room with everything you need and in the morning we opened the curtains to...

We stayed here as part of an organised tour and It was a surprise to stay in a motel with such a wonderful view. Our room had a balcony and we were able to see seals chasing salmon and the salmon jumping out of the water. There is a pub and restaurant located next door to the motel. Our room... More

We stayed for 3 nights. due to the ferry, we had a very late arrival in the early hours of the morning along with a number of other guests. Despite the early hour the staff were friendly and helpful and quick at getting everyone sorted with their rooms. Rooms were a good size and very comfortable, and with tea/ coffee... More

We travel to Port Hardy every year in July to go salmon fishing and have stayed at the Glen Lyon twice. There are four of us therefore we rent two rooms. In 2013 both of the rooms had very loud bathroom fans which I reported to the front desk. This past July one of the rooms was the same as... More
