The place was apparently fully booked so the only room available was the most expensive room - so we took that. When we arrived it was clear to us that it was almost empty, at night there were at most, three cars parked in the lot. The only positive thing I can say about it was that the room was... More

The interior is unique & beautifully decorated with the owners own personal history weaved throughout, you need to take a few moments to check out both floors. Our room was very comfortable & the bathroom looked like it was recently renovated. The innkeepers were down to earth, and the breakfast in Edie Rae's Cafe was great! We were travelling with... More

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

Pros • Awesome view of the pulp mill with its epic billowing steam clouds • Corridors decorated with creepy antiques and ephemera • High ceilings • Staff were very friendly Cons • Despite repeated efforts on our part to check in the day we arrived, staff didn’t check us in till halfway through our two-night stay, and then made us...

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

Stephanie, We are really sorry that you felt that way about our beautiful Inn. Powell River is a town on the coast of BC and with a coastal town there most definitely be a paper mill. I wish you would of done more homework prior to arriving to our country. You would of discovered Powell River is a city with... 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.
