I stayed at this hotel for business and my wife and kids stayed for a micro-vacation so we had a pretty good sampling of the hotel. First, the hotel is in a very pretty location and it's perfect for weddings or group functions. We stayed off-season and it was a good retreat, though the yoga classes I was hoping for... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights with our dogs. $20 per dog per night, two dog maximum. (Were were able to arrange for three dogs, but that might have been somebody's mistake.) I gather all pet suites are on the first floor in the west wing. (You enter the building on the 4th floor.) Our two sliding... More

We very much enjoyed our stay - a perfect getaway. "Ocean" front is a bit exaggarated, "water" front is more like it with a little marina and other capes in front. But a lovely core of shops and restaurants for strolling nearby. We enjoyed the quiet of the hotel - didn't hear a sound from other rooms. Large suite with... More

Tranquil seaside village in Cowichan bay, graced by this great hotel with panoramic views. Check in is smooth and pleasant. Reception floor has no stairs to rooms so is good for disabled. Rooms are comfortable and quiet with kitchenette. The dining table in the room is to small as is the desk area. Wifi is included. No DVD. Cable TV... More

The Ocean Terrace restaurant in the Oceanfront Suites has a beautiful setting overlooking the Bay. There are sailing and fishing boats in the foreground and during the morning we dined, there was a beautiful rainbow arching across the misty clouds and sky in front of us. We arrived for brunch and chose the Classic bacon and eggs, and our friends,... More

I have used this property on two occasions. Both were reasonable stays in clean rooms. Wireless was good but one the last stay the key cards kept failing which resulted in a few trips back to the desk for replacements. The location offers a gym, pool and outdoor patio area overlooking Cowichan Bay. Local attractions and schools are well within... More

The location is great, the rooms are huge and the staff at reception both on arrival and check out were charming. However, the whole place is a bit tired. Odd placement of furniture in the spacious suite and a complete lack of any additional decor like pictures on the wall or the odd vase did not make it very welcoming.... More

Spacious and clean rooms, friendly accomodating staff and the dusk and dawn views are spectacular. Probably better value for larger travel party (we were only two) given the layout of the suite and defintely suited for a longer stay with a decently equipped kitchenette.

We had a wedding function at this place in August and had booked a suite 9 months in advance along with a last minute room for my son and his girlfriend so the Inn should have had lots of time to organize. Check in was to be at 3 pm, my son was there at 1:30 with promise of tumely... More

We stayed here after viewing a room at 'the other' hotel in Cowichan Bay which was awful. This hotel is ok, big rooms, clean, furniture and decor a bit tired (whole in the cover on our sofa etc). Comfortable bed, great views. This hotel is significantly better than the other hotel in the bay. The staff were very friendly and... More
