We booked an Oceanfront Patio King suite for 4 adults and paid a premium price for this accommodation. Although the suite was spacious the amenities were lacking. Only two plates, two coffee mugs, two glasses, two towels when they were specifically told there would be 4 adults. Housekeeping had to be called many times over a two day period. One... More

My family has stayed at this hotel for multiple occasions and have never had a been experience. Wonderful staff and views from every room window that can't be beat. Views of the ocean from every room window. Watch whales, seals and nature from the comfort of your room. Great long-term rates. Highly recommend. Nice restaurant.

My husband and I enjoyed a spacious and bright well - furnished room.The expansive and deluxe, comfortable bed combined with gorgeous view of beach area and marina are most memorable.

We stayed here for 5 days a in renovated suite on the 5th floor. The suite included bedroom, living room, small kitchen & bathroom with rain shower. The views were spectacular! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We found the kitchen too small to do any serious cooking (no oven, small Fridge) but we understand the rooms below us... More

The Oceanfront Suites at Cowichan Bay offers friendly service and lovely views from all their rooms. There are some great restaurants nearby (Masthead), challenging but scenic Arbutus Ridge golf course is about 10 minutes away and lots of local wineries in the vicinity. The kitchenettes in the suites could use some updating and definitely could be better stocked. Our kitchen... More

Such a beautiful location, super friendly and accommodating staff and an awesome and welcoming pet policy. Will definitely return one day. We stayed in an "economy" suite which was still huge and easily housed my wife and I and our baby and dog.

I walked in without a booking looking for a room for one night. The front desk staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful and the suite I was given was more like a large apartment. Everything clean and working. I have paid a lot more for a lot less in other places. The only downside was the restaurant which I thought... More

We had a spectacular two-room suite. Both had very nice televisions and good WiFi access. One room had an equipped kitchen (stove, microwave, refrigerator, coffee machine, pots & pans and utensils) and living area. The other room had two very comfortable queen beds. There was a free laundry (one washer & one dryer) available that could have been cleaner. The... More

Stayed at this hotel quite a few times now. Great views and excellent service. Right on the ocean, huge spacious rooms all opening onto the bay. Great breakfasts. New upgrades on some rooms. Small bathrooms though. Pool and hot tub.
