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

This hotel is in the old historic section of Powell River. The rooms are decorated with antiques and many old family treasures. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed the breakfast, included in the room rate. There was not one set breakfast but many items to choose from. The rooms were very clean, fresh and well appointed with... More

Using Tripadvisor as reference, I decided to spend three nights in the Old Courthouse Inn while attending the Pacific Region International Student Music Academy in June. My first reaction as I approached was negative - could this be alongside a pulp mill? - it was. But, the plumes coming from the mill were steam, and the mill was running just... More

The Inn actually looks better than the photo shows. I also have no reason to think the rooms and service are anything other than as splendid as the promotional material says. However: be aware. The Inn is directly opposite a paper mill. Anyone with a serious respiratory problem, such as asthma, or certain allergies, any condition aggravated by airborne particulate... More

We had a lovely 2 night stay in this quirky and comfortable hotel. The owners are extremely friendly and have a lovely place full of history. The breakfast included in the price is lovely- lots of choice. Powell River has lots to do from the Heritage Walk round the old Townsite to the scenic Inland Lake walk not forgetting the... More

It's a great pleisure to be here. The price includes the breakfast and thats really fair. The House is an adventure with it's pretty detailed decorations. We will not be surprised, if we get visits from ghosts tonight ;-) It's a very cool hotel with very friendly people.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Old Courthouse Inn for our 5th anniversary. It was so charming from your first step through the front door. We stayed in the judges chamber. The hotel is immaculately decorated in antiques and other past treasures. The decor and design of the rooms down to the bedcovers have an attention to detail... More

We really enjoyed our 2 nights at The Old Courthouse Inn. This heritage building has been beautifully maintained and upgraded to create a delightful place to stay. The room we had (#4) retains the heritage feel of the property, but also provides all the modern comforts one would hope for, like ample hot water, complimentary (and fast) wifi, air conditioning,...
