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

The hotel was a excellent deal. For the $$$ and the view was a bargain. The rooms were nothing special. But the staff was friendly and attentive. It really made our up island getaway complete. The marina filled with boats fantastic ocean front shops. All just foot steps and a nice stroll from the hotel!

For the price they charge here, you expect things like tvs that were made in the last 20 years and screens on the patio doors so you can let the refreshing ocean breeze in without all the bugs, and patio doors that lock so you can leave your room without wondering if all your valuables will be stolen. If you... More

We stayed at the hotel on August 23rd. I was the roommate of the previous poster (ChonaF) and my experience was along the same lines. Having travelled all morning to get to the hotel, arriving at 2pm (1 hour before check in) we were hoping to perhaps be able to check in early, as some hotels are able to accommodate... More

Our close friends held their wedding at this venue on August 23, 2014. This hotel is nestled in a quaint and cute little sleepy seaside town. The hotel itself is clean, rooms are spacious with comfortable beds with kitchenettes and offer fabulous ocean views. Rooms do not have aircon, have only one fan, but we found opening the windows at... More

The location is amazing. But they have gone cheap on the decor and rooms. They are not afraid to charge big prices though. Nice little town. Great views from the rooms. But I'd suggest a b@b next time through. Or drive on to Victoria. The beds are also hard.

I stayed here during a work trip, and found it hard to concentrate on duties, while overlooking the gorgeous Cowichan Bay. The room was roomy, with all the comforts I would hope for. I would have liked a larger menu selection in the restaurant, but found the food adequate and the service spectacular. I would definately stay again.

Stayed for second time as part of a BC Ferries vacation package. Wonderful! Loved the spacious, clean and comfortable rooms with gorgeous views of the small harbour and marina; the courteous, friendly and very helpful staff, and the delicious breakfast in the restaurant upstairs. Weather was perfect and now that sea lions were away for the season, was worried that... More

My wife and I stayed there July 3 & 4 2014 after 5 days on the west coast trail. Our room the first night was fine. We had to move to another on the second night, but were told it was identical but had one less window and two double beds instead of one. The words that comes to mind... More
