As we drove in from Alberta, we knew we would be late reaching the hotel. The staff informed me of their timings and also made a back-up arrangement for check-in, in case we got delayed. That was quite a relief for me. We ultimately did end up reaching there on time.
When I started talking to them about our arrival time (prior to doing the reservation), I also managed to get a great deal on the rates.
Hotel was quiet in April and that meant great personal attention and quiet surroundings. Great view of the mountains from our room, they were cleaned everyday and the breakfast was nice. Breakfast being open up to 10 am meant I could get up late without worrying about missing the breakfast. Arrangements for check-out was explained well, as we had to leave before 5 AM to catch the ferry from Nanaimo, BC.
The hotel's location is excellent, close to BC 4 to drive to Pacific Rim National Park and is also close to shopping malls and good restaurants.
We are definitely keen to return there in the peak season and my hope is that the service will still be the same, which would then definitely let me upgrade this rating!
