This hotel has history and style. It is certainly not your typical North American standard hotel. Despite the house being pretty old, there are few inconveniences when it comes to the room. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast very good. Location of the hotel however is miserable, in a fairly deserted part of the town, just behind a large... More

A very charming hotel filled with antiques, with a very friendly staff and excellent breakfast included. It is like living in the past but with all the modern conveniences of the present. It is not a large hotel so it becomes very familiar and comfortable. Would highly recommend it.

A thoroughly charming and authentic boutique hotel. Period decor is remarkable. Very clean and functional. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will definitely return to stay longer! And yes, the complimentary hot breakfast is amazing!!!!

This hotel, which we booked by recommendation of "Lonely Planet", was -besides the friendliness of the people- a complete failure! It's a pity to say as we really liked the hostess, but we cannot recommend that place. The rooms are small and smelly and need to be renovated. The air condition is either not working or much too loud, so... More

The location of this Inn is in the vicinity of the cinema and a really good Greek restaurant which is just across the street. The decor of the inn is very interesting since there are antiques everywhere. Each room is decorated differently but the owners have gone to a lot of trouble to decorate with period pieces. The lamps are... More

Enchanting place with great charm! Good value with complimentary breakfast. Located in the historic town of Powell River. We stayed in the "Sheriffs Office". Slept great in nice firm bed. Had the "Powell Riviera" eggs benedict for breakfast. Yum.

This boutique heritage hotel is fabulous. The staff are incredibly friendly and the quality of hospitality outstanding. The owner opened the cafe for us during off hours to provide complimentary coffee, allowed for a very late check out and even carried our bags to the car! The hot breakfast that is included with the reservation is top notch and the... More
