“Excellent hotel in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

Rooms were good sized and well appointed. Location is within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and a liquor store. Excellent hot breakfast included. Front desk staff were extremely friendly and even upgraded upon check in. I would definitely stay here next time i am in town.

The staff at the Westerly really took the time to hear my requests concerning my elderly family member.There was a stool placed by the bed so she didn't have trouble getting in an out of the very comfy bed. Also there was extra coffee and a third ceramic cup to help fuel up the weary travelers.
Taking the time to listen and make sure these things were in place when we got there ,means that the Westerly Staff are caring folk.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are quieter and the balconies are a bonus.

Whilst touring Vancouver Island my wife and I spent 2 nights at the Westerly Hotel having booked on line from the UK. The Westerly certainly exceeded our expectations. It was easy to find and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who made us feel very welcome. Our room was clean and very comfortable. The food - we ate breakfast and dinner in the hotel on both days of our stay - was excellent as was the choice of venues for our evening meal. Both check in and check out was effortless. If you're planning to visit Courtenay then look no further than The Westerly Hotel as it provides excellent accommodation at a good price

This was an ideal place for the purpose of our trip. It was a 5 minute drive to the arena and in close proximity to restaurant and shopping.

The hotel serves up breakfast in the morning. The waffle station was fun and the omlette were much better than expected. Much better than hard boiled eggs as in other hotels. The room was older, but still well kept. The beds and linen were new. We found a spider on our linen the first night, but this did not frightened my 7 year old too much. A bit of tissue complimentary in the hotel and the problem was solved. We used the pool extensively. Kind of cold and the drop from shallow end to deep must be clearly navigated, but we enjoyed it nonetheless. There is covered parking as well great for those coming and going in the early mornings.

This was a quality hotel for the price we paid. I would recommend this place.

In the last couple of weeks have had the pleasure of staying at the Westerly Hotel & Convention Centre in Courtenay BC. 3 separate times. Each time the front desk staff where very quick to check me in and upon arriving in the room found it to be very clean with one of the lamps on and music playing softly. Really enjoyed these small touches. Have ordered room service and it was very prompt, correct, and hot. Love the Westerly Hotel & Convention Centre and would highly recommend it to friends, family, and co-workers.

Room Tip: rooms in the new wing are beautiful and get a pillowtop queen bed they are so comfy.

I recently had occasion to check back into the Westerly after using another hotel chain in the area out of curiousity more than anything else. I was very pleased to see upgrades and changes made to the services at The Westerly. Notably they have added a free continental breakfast and I was very pleased with the quality and selection of food items. The restaurant is less "stuffy" and staff were pleasant, as always. The lounge seemed to be less noisy and was a cheerful, but fairly quiet place to have supper and I appreciated this as a woman travelling by myself most times. I dont like noisy bars, but neither do I have a travel budget or appetite for "stuffy" expensive restaurants. The front desk service was Class A1 as always at the Westerly, but I do appreciate very much the addition of a continental breakfast and it made the value for money excellent compared to other suitable hotels in the area. Well done Folks.

Room Tip: Once you get used to the noise of traffic crossing the bridge, I like a room with a bit of a river v...

We were there one night with our 4 year old grandson. The room was very nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The pool and hot tub were well maintained and the water temp. was great. The breakfast that was included was superb with a good variety of choices especially the waffles and omlettes. The staff was great. The only negative was that the walk from our room in the new section to the main lobby, restaurant and pool was across the entry parking lot. We were fortunate that is was not raining or snowing.
