“Fabulous stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

What a fabulous stay - almost like staying in a friend's house with antiques and collectables in the rooms and corridors. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were excellent quality and filling (and many choices were included in the room rate). The hotcakes have to be sampled - thanks Kelly! We didn't manage to sample the dinner menu (too early in the season) but we did enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace of an afternoon.

The location is a few miles from the main business district but it is right in the heart of the historic Town Site.

We would stay here again - no question.

Room Tip: We had room 4 - large and airy.

Our family of 4 stayed for 2 nights in "The Jury Rooms". It was part of the charm that the rooms weren't numbered but named after rooms one might find in a court house. The decor in the passages helped one to escape from city life, to slow down and relax, thinking of the olden days!
Location near a variety of restaurants was very convenient. And the BEST: Breakfast at Edie's Cafe! yummy and perfect.
Thanks for the great break.

Room Tip: Just tell the owners exactly what you need - they are perfect hosts.

Thank you and your staff for such a warm welcome. Truly felt at home. Such a quaint get away down memory lane. I felt so at home. Breakfast was great, can't wait to try out the dinner menu this summer.

The Old Courthouse Hotel is a funky, charming hotel that is very much like a Bed and Breakfast in the town of Powell River. Art and antiques abound inside the old courthouse making every corner interesting to visit.
The included breakfast at Edy's downstairs was fresh and tasty ...served by a sweet girl with a charming French accent.
If you are planning to vibist the Desolation Marine Park... Make sure you stay here...it will complete your visit.

Lovely, charming heritage inn. Comfy bed, clean room and very pleasant staff. Really enjoyed all the history throughout the inn. The breakfast at Edie Raye's was great, too! A lovely place to stay while enjoying the beauty of Powell River.

Beautiful nostalgic building with beautiful antiques and artifact and history through-out. Staff were extremely accommodating. Breakfast was five star all the way! Eggs Bene were perfect.

The view outside is lacking due to the mill, but, enjoy the beauty and comfort with-in.

Beds and rooms were supper cosy and clean!

Love it!

The Inn is exceptionally clean and well appointed. It's period appropriate charm holds true, right down to the crystal ring holder at the bedside.

The view of the mill on the water a few blocks down, is a small price to pay for the spotless nature of the accommodation, centralized location between Lund and the ferry terminal, and yummy gourmet quality breakfasts that are included in one's room rate.

We were in Powell River looking at real estate, thus drove by many resorts and hotels and was not once disappointed at our having chosen The Old Courthouse Inn.
