Many reviews rate the hotel as excellent but this is not correct. It is a good to very good hotel, I would recommend it and return. The location on the lake is really wonderful, a balcony room very enjoyable. The room was adequate and comfortable, good size too. Wifi worked.

Thank you TaraT760. It is nice being able to unwind after a hard day of work, and I think being by the lake makes it much easier to do.I am glad you were able to enjoy our facilities while you were with us.

Well rooms where nice and clean but no room to park as snow was not shoveled and no pay way to cover walk way so we got soaked feet walking thru the snow .Rooms where a lil pricey guess due to road condition needed a room.

Fantastic location just few steps from gorgeous lake. The rooms are simple but comfortable. Nice breakfast with lake view. Parking is just in front of the rooms. The high light is a hat with large Jacuzzi in the middle of the garden close to the lake. The guests can swim in the

This was the view from our room.
It's not really in a shopping area, but there is a mall a mile or two up the road. Departure Bay about 10 minutes. Not sure how far from VIU

All rooms are renovated and looking great. There are rooms on the third floor, and away from the road. I know that some people are more sensitive to noise, and prefer the north end, but really noise is not an issue in any of our rooms. We are always happy to do what we can to get our guests the ideal room, so please let us know your requests when you make your booking. While we never guarantee requests, as sometimes things do go astray, we do a great job at honouring the requests from guests. We will see you in August

We will indeed be doing some renovations, which will be starting shortly. The work will all be done by April 1, 2016, so will not impact your stay at our Inn. WE hope you like the changes!

There are indeed restaurants within walking distance. We are about 1 city block away from a nice Japanese restaurant, and a coffee shop/sandwich shop, and about 3 blocks from Montana's family restaurant. Rates do vary depending on availability, but the rate available right now for two seniors in a standard room, with 2 queen size beds, coffeemaker, mini fridge, and microwave, Continental breakfast, and free wifi and parking is $121.50 plus taxes per night.
