We stayed overnight in The Governor's Room and loved it! It is a lovely vintage style (and pet friendly) hotel and has tons of character around every corner. Be sure to take your time looking around as there is much to see. JP & Kelly take really good care of this clean, quiet little gem, and if you're looking to... More

It is rare to find such service these days. From the get-go my booking and stay were handled with a personal touch. Quiet, very clean and cozy. Prepare to be surprised by the complimentary full breakfast menu. A high standard is set in the kitchen and the coffee is top notch. Easy access to all amenities in Powell River. This... More

We stayed overnight as we attended the Banff Film festival at Max Cameron Theater, which is closer to Powell River than more accommodation options in Westview- the main site of business/ferries/groceries. It was like staying with a rich old relative- lots of trinkets, personal items not normally found in hotels. Bonus - DVD collection of movies we could watch and... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere, fabulous breakfasts and friendly staff. Being surrounded by old and antique furnishings and decor added great charm to the Old Courthouse Inn. Great value, I would stay here again.

2 day trip to Powell River to hike with our dog, no knowledge of the town and found the Old Courthouse online. What a wonderful discovery. A warm welcome from JP into an eclectic and historic cosy inn, with comfortable rooms and old-style hospitality. Hope to return soon, especially fort he terrific included breakfast.

I stay at the Inn every time I visit Powell River. A period hotel that provides a super interesting journey into the past ... pristine antiques everywhere, even in the guest rooms. Beds are great. Rooms are quiet (two things that are a "must" when I travel). But the best thing about the Inn is the service. The owners and... More

If you're looking for a cookie cutter, run of the mill motel, then this may not be for you! However, if you're looking for a memorable place to stay while on The Sunshine Coast, where the history is rich and you feel as if you're spending the night in a museum than I highly recommend The Old Courthouse Inn.

I come sleep here every chance I get. The 2 partners that own and manage the place do a fantastic job at keeping the place mint. The decoration is tasteful. The antiques are beautiful and in perfect condition. Staying here makes me feel like I travel back in time to a different era. There are great books in the rooms... More

Stayed here on a recent business trip to Powell River. It is a period building (1930's?) just up from the paper mill. Room was very quiet and the views amazing. There are many interesting artifacts and photographs to look at, which gives you an appreciation of local history. Rooms are well appointed and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing,...
