We had received our gift certificate last spring at our annual Chamber event. The Hotel had donated the room for the event. Gorgeous King bed, thought I was sleeping by myself, We kept the window open all night and listened to the waves lapping lightly on the beach. The staff where super friendly and very courteous, even when we where... More

This is a good hotel in Cowichan Bay where, if you get one of the renovated rooms, you'll be thrilled. Mine was a one bedroom king on the top floor with views right out to the bay, full kitchen, nice appliances, decor and amenities. The thing that I have to talk about is the staff. They were all friendly and... More

Great staff, both at the Front desk, the Chef, & the House-keeping staff were kind, & helpful. It has good value for money as well, We were there at a conference with many delegates, yet the staff knew us right away, and were helpful, and even personable. Though I say the Hotel style & Amenities were not better than average,... More

My wife and I, along with my son and his fiance, booked the Valentines Day package. We were delighted to find a cold bottle of nice bubbly wine on ice, with a long stemmed rose and a hand made valentine in our room. Supper and breakfast were included in the package, there were lots of choices, and lobster was on... More

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
