An unexpected surprise

We had been hearing a few very positive comments about this restaurant so decided to give it a try for breakfast (had not been there for 3 years during which time ownership and management have changed a couple of times). What a surprise from the moment we entered! The decor was much improved and... read more

We had a good meal not great. They charge Vancouver prices so not the greatest value. Service was excellent but all and all this place with a great view misses atmosphere.

We had lunch at the Water Resort last Sunday and were delighted with all of the updates, improved menu and cheerfulness of our server. The Inn has had many updates since I was there last and has been well decorated, is immaculate and the view is always most welcome. I was delighted to see this hotel make it's reappearance in...

Great views of Cowichan Bay from every room and the pool and the exercise room. Marina at the door. Right at Cowichan bay with all its delightful stores. A bus stop at the door for those who do not want the hassle of driving and parking Great staff. A pleasure to be there

Not too sure where some people get there daily food to call this place edible. Has to rank up to one of the worst buffets of all time. Either cold, dry, soggy, barely cook sausage, wilted bacon (yes wilted), and a crap load of used seafood on display. Unless your standing in line for chef prepared eggs and waffles topped... More

For me, the best parts about Inn at the Water are the friendly and helpful staff at the front counter, and the great little exercise room and pool which face the ocean on the ground level. It is a great addition to the Cowichan Bay scene.

While we stayed at the Oceanfront we had the opporunity to eat in their restaurant which is now called the Grand Restaurant. The pricing was good and the food was great. The view was romantic and we had a lovely glass of local wine with our dinner. We cant wait to come back!
