We decided to spend a night in Powell River and wanted a place that represented the original town. Chose the Old Courthouse Inn, based on Trip Advisor reviews, location, and availability. First impression was very positive. Unit was clean, well equiped and had lots of historiical charm. Beds were comfortable and quiet. Next morning, we enjoyed a very well presented... More

The Old Courthouse Inn actually is the old courthouse, and the rooms are the former offices. The management is friendly and accommodating, the restaurant has really good food, and the rooms are comfortable and interesting. There is a brewery and nice restaurants right around it. This is the old town of Powell River, which went into decline because of the... More

A historic hotel, it used to be the courthouse. The rooms are all named for various court house rooms, i.e., Judges Chambers. The hotel is located in the historic area of Powell River, very close to the ocean and an old mill. It is a very interesting area to walk in and you're sure to find some interesting photo ops....

The whole family enjoyed this hotel; it is small, and the decorations are somewhat quirky! - but it felt very homely. The rooms were clean, air conditioned and had adequate amenities. A good breakfast was also included. Don't expect fantastic views of the bay - there is a paper mill right outside! Free parking. Free wifi. Walking distance to restaurants... More

The proprietors of this Inn, Kelly & J.P. are cheerful and welcoming. The Inn is true to their vision, with antiques, books and facscinating bric a brac througout the halls and rooms, which are, because of its first incarnation as courthouse and gaol, each unique. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. This is an individualistic Inn, not for those... More

The friendliest ‘inn keeper’ ever! He was incredibly gracious, friendly, informative, and really made us feel at home. The antiques, pictures, and personal history add to the incredible charm. The desert that I had that night - red velvet cake - was unbelievable! The best I have ever had! My only regret was that we were not able to stay... More

We were very disappointed by The Old Courthouse Inn. What the nice photo of the inn cleverly omitted was the pulp mill literally across the street, and the surrounding run down neighborhood. The Inn is filled to the rafters with nostalgia - tea cups, dolls, furniture, rugs, etc. If you have any dust or mold allergy problems, this is not... More

My husband and I made a trip to the Sunshine Coast for our 42nd wedding anniversary, and made reservations for 2 nights at the Old Courthouse Inn. This cozy little hotel is clean, very unique & just a little ray of sunshine for those of us who appreciate the charm of "boutique" hotels. It is very nicely decorated with antique... More

This family run boutique hotel oozes turn of the century charm, with the personal service to match it. Freshly renovated and very clean, this former courthouse has been equipped with excellent beds, which is after all, why you are here. The area is quiet, the air is fresh (yes it is. Don't let the mill put you off.) and it... More
