My wife and I spent the night in the Moonlight Room on 29 September 2013. We try to use B&B accommodation as much as possible as the experience is far better than hotels.
All we can say is that Marc and Mirja have created an amazing place, the environment inside and out is so calming! Mirja’s art (displayed around the property) and Marc’s breakfast and attention to guests is excellent. The Moonlight Room provides everything you could want, a balcony, a wonderfully comfortable bed and what I can only describe as one of the best ensuites we have experienced in our travels – this was especially appreciated after spending the previous few days in the Selkirks wildlife watching, that level of luxury was bliss. For the normal European visitor (and I notice from the reviews here that it isn’t high on the usual Europeans tour list of locations) it came as a nice surprise to find this quality in a relatively industrial area of BC.
This brings me to a comment in defence of Marc and Mirja. Some reviews have been slightly scathing about the Celgar Pulp Mill opposite - I travel for business reasons and there are many 5* hotels that do not get comments about noisy location even when they are beside the freeway or in the middle of downtown! We did not find fumes or noise from the mill any problem at all. In this life perfection in every way is impossible, Marc and Mirja have far exceeded what could be expected in such a location, achieving near perfection (yes, I only marked 4/5 for location but this was more the visual aspect of the mill distracting from the river and the other views!)
Would we stay here again? Without a doubt if travelling through this area again we will.
Would I recommend to others? Yes, this is amongst the best quality and value B&B’s around, if you need to stay in or around Castlegar this is the place to stay.
