Walking distance to Cowichan Bay. Love the fact that we can stay close to village and have our little guy Kaho come along for the trip. Clean rooms ... no TV service in our room though. Unable to fix problem. But we have come back about 3 times now.

Needed a place to sleep following a party, this was perfect at a good price. There's nothing more irritating than to have to spend a lot of money just to sleep for a few hours when you are not far from home but comfort and cleanliness is a must. This was definitely the right fit for us. Room was fairly...

An unexpected 2 night stay when we had motorcycle problems. Don, the manager was : Fantastic. Accomodating. Friendly. Concerned. Let us have our bike towed to his lot and work on it there. The location is almost waterfront, and all rooms have some view of the bay. It's an easy easy walk into the fun little town of Cowichan Bay....

Family suite with kitchen. No microwave in kitchen, fridge malfunctioning (lack of freezer compartment was made up by everything being frozen in the morning). Tiny bathroom, faucet leaking. Would I go back there? No.

This Inn is situated in front of a park alongside the seafront, very near several pubs/restaurants. The rooms were clean, comfortable and good value for the money. The location is fabulous with the small town pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. We had planned to stay only one night but ended up spending two.

Most has been said in previous reviews though I would like to emphasise asking for a top room with a view. The view is simply superb + you can get a breeze as it was quite warm during our visit. The rooms are fine as a 3.5 standard motel. Some re-investment is needed but we enjoyed the stay all the...

From the outside this place looks gorgeous and all the rooms have a little balcony with views of the water. Inside the place was dated although it seemed work was being done. The floors looked new, but everything else was very dated. Some rooms must be for permanent guests and the one with a door open looked pretty scary inside....

Was planning on Victoria but when searching this little hotel showed up in quaint little Cowichan Bay, a quick change of plans and we were off. From check in to departure it was a good experience, much more affordable than anywhere in Victoria, warm friendly reception then the room was spotless and as promised we had a little deck we...

Wessex Inn has a super location just across from the waterfront and just beyond Cowichan Bay's business district. Every room has a water view, or you can step across the road to Hecate Park, a thin strip park along the waterfront, with benches and picnic tables where you can relax and enjoy the view of the Cowican estuary and the...

A good place to stay if visiting Cowichan Bay. The room had a kitchenette, was clean and the bed comfortable. The location is perfect as you are just across the street from the village of Cowichan Bay.
