We stayed here with my inlaws in a 2 bedroom Executive suite. I was expecting a little more for some reason. Maybe it was the price. We paid $270/night so I then expect the best of the best - especially for Vancouver Island in the winter. Our room was nicely done and we had a corner unit which was nice.... More

I'm sorry that you stay didn't quite meet your expectations. We strive to make every guest's stay a positive and pleasant experience. Unfortunately there are times when we are not able to accomplish that goal. For example, it is difficult (nearly impossible) to find a bed that provides everyone with the perfect night of sleep. We do our best, but... More

When we arrived, the front desk person seemed distracted/confused and sent us to the wrong room. When I went back to ask about it, she issued me new keys for the right room. The view from our room was amazing. The amenities in the room were a bit basic, but still nice.

Dan, I'm glad that your initial experience at the front desk of the Oceanfront Suites at Cowichan Bay was offset by the balance of your stay! Thank you for the comment about the amenities. We are in the process of choosing a new line of room amenities and should have them in our guest rooms before the end of February.... More

This is the 2nd time that we have stayed here in the past year. The first time was for a wedding in June for 2 nites. The wedding and reception were both on the grounds of the hotel. It was excellent - from the view, to the rooms, to the food & especially the staff (and of course, the wedding!)... More

Rhonda, we are so pleased that you enjoyed both of your stays with us! We're sorry that the Hot Tub was out of commission during your last stay, but getting parts over the Christmas - New Years week is a real challenge! Thank you again, and we hope that your next stay will be just as pleasant. More

We come here every December as a place to stay after the company Christmas party. The suites are spacious, clean and comfortable and the view is outstanding. Breakfasts are consistently delicious. The location would be an outstanding spot for a longer stay while exploring the area. The little village of Cowichan Bay is a treat year round but in December... More

We recently got married and held our reception at this beautiful hotel and let us tell you that the experience was perfect. Half of the people attending were from the island and half from the other side of the country. The fact that everyone could stay over night at this beautiful hotel was amazing and really convenient for everyone. The... More

This was a gorgeous location for a wedding. Beautiful views of the harbour from the rooms. All the staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. The food was really good at the wedding and we enjoyed the buffet breakfast. The restaurant has nice views as well. Free wifi. We visited friends in different rooms and noticed that upgrades are needed.... More

This hotel was hard for me to rate as I place a lot of value on cleanliness and newness, but I know that for other travellers, different factors are important so I want to be fair by saying my preferences at the start. Pros: Located right on the water so the view is spectacular. Our room was on the first... More

The suite was a bit dated but the location made up for it! The suite we stayed in had a living room with a small kitchenette, and a separate bedroom. There's also a pool and hot tub however I didn't have time to check it out. Check out the ice cream place down the street!!!
