I booked a two course golf package through Golf Vancouver Island that came with a two night stay at Cowichan Bay Oceanview Suites. Before leaving on my trip I checked out their website for amenities, after 18 holes of golf I was looking forward to a swim and hot tub. Upon check-in I asked where the pool was and was... More

The accommodations are clean, sufficient and serviceable although unspectacular. However, the amazing staff at this hotel unfailingly go above and beyond. I've travelled extensively and love that this hotel offers such a personal experience. It's a few minutes out of town, but worth the drive. I stay regularly. A true example of the West Coast hospitality.

I arrived late at night and drove by twice before finding it. The receptionist was very helpful and although the restaurant was already closed directed me to where I might find food. The rooms themselves were great and well appointed and could have accommodates 4 people with ease, together with a lounge area and a well equipped kitchen area. Sleep... More

We booked a three night stay here to attend a family wedding. We had a one bedroom suite which was more than enough room for two people. We had a beautiful view of the bay and enjoyed having the window open when it wasn't raining. Sadly there was no balcony. The kitchenette was fully stocked with dishes and we were... More

My husband & I stayed here 3 nights in August 2013 & did not want to leave. We loved it so much we kept going back each night from wherever we had ventured to on Vancouver Island. The hotel is beautiful, the view gorgeous, the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. Just a beautiful place... More

Have stayed here in past and will continue to do so in the future. One should not be deterred by the the first impression of the hotel. As with a good book the cover is not what counts. Once inside the lobby you will know this place is special. As I have only stayed on the 3rd floor I can't... More

Ok hotel. We had problems with our lights in our room and the front desk person was quick to come and adjust them. Asked for a wake up call but did not receive one. They likely did call but we realized after that the ringer on the phone was turned off. The restaurant was not open and would have appreciated... More

If you like noise created by sports teams and kids screaming in the pool and on the grounds , running up and down the stairs and halls , this is your place, then ensure they put you in the suites where you bed headboard is on the elevator shaft. My fav stunt by the hockey team was for them to... More

I would unfortunately avoid this hotel if you're sensitive to noise. We usually stay at another hotel while visiting family in the area, but thought we'd try Oceanfront Suites this time since Cowichan Bay is so lovely. The sliding patio doors overlooking the water are nice, but NOT on nights when hordes of shrieking teenagers from the sports teams staying... More

I stayed on two occasions for 3 days. The first time I got a room on the 5th floor. The second time my room was on the ground floor. I'm not sure which I liked best. The view was incredible in both cases but on the ground floor I could walk out to the sea and along a trail into... More
