“Better than we had expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We booked this hotel for one night as we had just finished a cruise in Vancouver and were heading North on Vancouver Island to Parksville. Felt a bit depressed as we arrived as the property looked a bit run down and there was a large skip in car park. Staff were friendly on check in and explained they were in the process of renovating. We had a lot of luggage and our room was on second floor, there was no lift....however, the man on reception kindly offered to carry our bags. We got a pleasant surprise when we got into our room, quite spacious and very clean. Bathroom was adequate for our needs for the night and also spotless. Went to bar for drink and felt a little uncomfortable for a few minutes as the few people in there stared at us...they all seemed to be locals. We sat by the window and a waitress came and gave us a menu...we explained we only wanted a drink but then my husband spotted something with prawns on the menu and ordered....when they arrived the waitress brought us an extra plate as she guessed I would want to try them....they were delicious! Before we had finished our drinks and food the karaoke began....we are not a lover of karaoke so decided to finish our drinks and leave. I dont know why, but we stayed a bit longer....and longer and had a fabulous evening! The place was packed by 11pm and everyone seemed to come to sing and all seemed to know each other and all were friendly towards us and made us fee part of something...great experience. The following morning we had a delicious breakfast (charged extra but worth it) and the staff gave us lots of info on thing to see and do around our final destination. A very surprising stay and proves one should make assumptions. Will stay here again if passing through Victoria...thanks for the great tme

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

We stayed here for a couple of nights in June and were pleased with how nice the hotel was. It looks a bit shabby from the outside, although it seemed to be having renovations. Our room though was very well kept - we got upgraded to a room with a kitchenette (although they locked away the kitchenware..) and very comfortable. There is a little bit of the normal noise from the rooms next door to deal with, but not the road noise I thought we'd get given we were close to the front of the hotel.

The staff were really friendly and helpful. The pool was decent enough for a quick dip, and it was nice to have the option of some basic gym equipment and sauna although we didn't use them. The wifi signal was a bit pathetic by the time it got to our room - much better if you hover near reception! Nice to have a safe in the room, as we were travelling with passports, cash etc..

The location of the hotel isn't great if you want to walk downtown - when the site says minutes, it means by car! Busses run regularly from just outside the hotel, but the walk is about 30 minutes at least and not through a very nice area of town (prostitution and drug deals both sited when we walked!). We taxi'd back after dinner! Overall though, a good stay!
