The Arbutus Hotel had a real old world feel about it. The lobby was old looking and beautiful. The people were so helpful. Brid was first to help us and then Betty was so welcoming in the breakfast room which was lovely. She had "smiling eyes". Our room was large and nicely decorated. The main drawback was that the parking lot was quite a distance from the hotel.

Room Tip: Good location, right in town but be prepared to walk a distance to the car.

Stayed in the Arbutus for a mid-week break, checked in by the very pleasant and efficient Ina. We got a superb room, very spacious and spotlessly clean. Very friendly man in the bar. The breakfast was superb, Betty in the Restaurant was very friendly.

The folks at the Arbutus were as nice as could be. Between my husband and myself and three girls (7,9 and 11), we are really crammed when we try to stay in a normal hotel room. The family room we stayed in was lovely and big enough to suit our needs.

Room Tip: There is a minor level of street noise at night and in the early morning (trucks making deliveries...
