We chose this option for our four guy fishing trip. The hotel has several room configurations and the one we stayed in was a three bedroom unit with twin beds in one of the bedrooms. The property is dated but very clean with full kitchen facilities and new BBQ equipment. The unit was large and had a separate sitting room with plenty of seating area for us to relax. We booked the same unit for our 2014 fishing trip. The cost of the unit was quite acceptable given out stay was mid August in high season for tourists visiting Pacific Rim National Park and of course fishing.
The owners went out of their way to accommodate some special requests we needed including moving all our belongings to another unit for our second night while we were out on the water.
Overall the unit, while dated, offers good accommodation for our purposes. The only slightly negative aspect was a TV that was quite small and technologically well past its best before date.
Otherwise we were completely happy with the accommodation.
