Beautiful placed hotel at the waterfront just a short car ride outside Campbell River city center. The hotel has big rooms, a nice little balcony, pool, and some very good restaurants - we had dinner at the bar both nights and even watched a whale meanwhile. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Skip the dining here - you won't miss a thing. Our meals in the dining room - all five us- did not enjoy. We were repeat customers but now find rooms are old and rough around the edges. Beds comfy tho.

I was here recently for a couple of nights on business. The location is great, scenery magnificent and staff all very attentive and friendly. Rooms are long overdue for some TLC and the common areas are really not much better. My room smelled strongly of mould/mildew and they were unable to move me to another room as they were fully...

Amazing view, Rustic Manager Suite in need up repair & update. Fishing was not good. Apparently worst fishing in 8 years. Bruce is an awesome guide. There are no trails or beach access to go for a walk. The resort is amongst houses. You do see Cruise ships, float planes and helicopters almost daily.

Mistakes made on our bill, garbage left in our room from previous customer, missing snack bag that no one admitted to - all left a bad taste to us, especially paying over $1400 for 3 nights and 2 mornings of fishing. Our fishing guide ,Tom, was excellent so at least that was good.

Great place to get away. I recommend the bear watching tours, they were well run, safe, and we saw a number of brown and grizzly bears. While the salmon catching wasn't great, the trip was really enjoyable and we learned a great deal about the native folklore and history.

The best time Whale watching with Brad. We saw humpbacks, orcas, seals, sea lions, Dolphins and bald eagles!! Our family all agreed it was the most exciting day of our whole holiday. My husband also went fishing and caught a chinnook which we had for dinner.

We just ended up with a very poor experience at Painter's Lodge during our brief stay. I'm not a negative person by nature so I won't say anything more. Breakfast on the patio in the early morning overlooking the bay was wonderful ~ warm & friendly service with great food

Our waiter in the lounge was especially helpful with our family. when our autistic son had a meltdown at dinner, he asked how he could help and make it right for our son. He saved our evening by working out something with the kitchen that looked like what our son was expecting (ASD kiddos tend to have a picture in... More

Painters Lodge is located in a beautiful setting. Our room was pretty average but had a nice deck that provided a great view. Lawn chairs old and not very comfy. We purchased whale watching and fishing excursions. The guides were super and although we didn't catch any fish, I have no complaints. My main complaint about the lodge is the... More
