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

We booked this hotel because it sounded unique, we weren't disappointed. We traveled to Powell River with our car club, the others stayed at a different hotel. When we showed them pictures of our room, they wanted to see how fabulous this place was. Yvonne, the Inn keeper, invited everyone in for a tour... the whole club will be booking... More

The Old Courthouse Inn has all you need to feel at home with a touch of class. The hosts and staff are very friendly and professional and the food is excellent! The hotel is located close to Powell Lake and Inland Lake. Gerry (North Bay, Ontario).

I cannot believe this website's endorsement of the hotel. This hotel is a few feet away from a large wood mill with the requisite smells. The rooms were small and oppressive and the "innkeeper" had to be awoken at 5 pm to register us. The view was supposed to be breathtaking. You could just about make out the sea from... More

What a fabulous stay - almost like staying in a friend's house with antiques and collectables in the rooms and corridors. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were excellent quality and filling (and many choices were included in the room rate). The hotcakes have to be sampled - thanks Kelly! We didn't manage to sample the dinner... More
