My fiance and I were attending a wedding on the Island so we took the early ferry over hoping we'd be able to check in and have ample time to get dressed and ready. While I realize all hotels generally have an afternoon check-in time, most hotels are able to accommodate early check-in when requested; however, our room was not... More

This place is ok. Great location nice setting and staff. However, it extremely dated. The rates are reasonable but we would be willing to go back if it had some atmosphere. I think we might try a B&B next time. It's so simple to add some upgrades that could make this place a Gem.

I have mixed feelings about this place - good, not so good and indifferent. Rooms - good size 1 BR with water view (not stunning). A very poor array of utensils, glasses, cutlery and crockery and cooking gear (1 fryingpan, 1 saucepan). Just totally inadequate for a self catering apartment. Bed comfy. Carpet very tired. Facilities - Pool area poor,... More

The resort is definitely dated & in dire need of a radical makeover, the rooms are cold and without any atmosphere. The restaurant was ok, and the food average. The staff & service was excellent, most friendly, helpful, and the service for the rooms, front desk & restaurant superb. The pool facilities were old, the gym not really worth visiting... More

The front desk staff were amazing. They went out of their way to help me with my various transport arrangements. Also the waitress at the restaurant was very friendly and gave great service. I ate at the restaurant for breakfast twice and the meals were both very enjoyable. The rooms here are very big with a great view of the... More

The room was very comfortable, clean and modern. We had an executive suite that included a living room with sofa bed and large flat screen tv, a kitchenette, bathroom and separate bedroom. We did not have enough coffee and the restaurant was closed for breakfast while we were there, but we managed to find breakfast (and more coffee) else where.... More

We stayed at the Oceanfront Suites at Cowichan Bay for 5 nights. It has the most beautiful, unobstructed view of the ocean. The staff is incredible friendly and helpful. The suites are extremely clean, spacious and good value.
