I was in Powell River for business and decided to stay at the Old Courthouse Inn based on the reviews online. I was not disappointed at all. It's a great little hotel in the Townsite area. The proprietor, JP, was friendly and personable. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for one night during a work trip. I have to admit I have a bit weary at first given that this place had the appearance of being haunted (not a bad thing if you are a ghosthunter). Had a great stay overall. I'm happy to report I saw no ghosts and the hosts were both so lovely... More

The hotel is comfortable and furnished with antiques evocative of the early 20th century when Powell River was established. Photos and other relics convey an impression of life in the mill town. Having lived almost 40 years on the BC coast, this hotel impresses me as providing the most authentic view of the past. The staff are helpful, accomplished and... More

We had a fantastic one-night stay at The Old Courthouse Inn! Antiques and art by a local artist add to the the charm of the historic Powell River Townsite inn. JP ensures everything is perfect in your room while Kelly whips up one of the best breakfasts anywhere. We wouldn't hesitate to return again.

This heritage boutique hotel was just perfect. We had a great king room named The Courthouse. The building was the original courthouse and police station in Powell river. It has been lovingly restored in period style but has all modern facilities. This boutique hotel is wonderful with loads of interesting period curiosities and great local art.

I had a wonderful trip to Powell River in March 2015. I stayed for two nights in the old "Judge's Room" which was perfect for a couple. The hosts, Kelly and JP were fantastic, sharing lots of interesting information about the heritage hotel. A definite "must stay" if travelling to Powell River!

We stayed at The Old Courthouse Inn in early February. It is like stepping into a museum with interesting pieces everywhere. We found the room to be comfortable and spacious. We were traveling with another couple and a single gentleman. The only problem we had was that our electricity was off when we awakened at 5:45 a.m. so we had... More

The building is interesting and well furnished. But their electric room heater and their hair dryer tripped the electrical breaker and there was no one on duty restore power. So we got dressed in the dark. The old electrical system needs some work. The antique furnishings would not be appropriate for small children. The breakfast in the restaurant was quite... More

Wonderful restore on this old building. Great decor - could be a museum! A few things left our rating short of excellent, but I would definitely recommend this inn to others. There was no soap in the shower dispenser and the bed was like sleeping in a saucer - my wife and I kept rolling towards the middle all night.... More
