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

I checked in and was led to my room by Kelly, who I would later find out was the wondeful chef for the complimentary breakfast. His eggs benedict is awesome, so are the standard eggs (over medium/easy) and the house fries are delicious (I love potatoes more than I should). He told me about the movies that were available to...

For those who are tired of the hotel & restaurant chains The Old Courthouse Inn offers a very pleasant change. The rooms are comfortable & quiet which makes for a good night's sleep. Only problem was staying up too late reading the several books that provide interesting Powell River history. What a beautiful little restaurant on the main floor! Breakfast... More

Very quaint inn, with comfortable beds and lots of charm! We were the only guests, so we had our choice of rooms. We had a good sleep, and the shower was hot! The host was very helpful, and we felt very welcome. We had a small TV, but we had a couch and side tables,so it was adequate. The books... More

A fabulous visit with Kelly, Yvonne, Corinne, and Dave. Kelly, owner, cook and jack of all trades was a pure sincere delight, serving up an incomparable breakfast choice: from Benny's to oatmeal and toast complete with homemade Blackberry jam (this truly reminded me of my Great Uncle Bill's house). Historic cozy rooms from the Sherrif's Office to the Judge's Chamber,... More

The warm welcome from the man who is very proud of his lovely hotel. When I was walking up the front stairs it was like walking into my grandparents home, the feeling was warm and fuzzy. I feel as the ghosts from the early 1900 where watching every move I made. The room my husband and I had was warm... More
