Our four night stay here was as good as it gets. The store is very well stocked and has excellent prices and a great Americano. Staff were approachable and helpful, but not clingy. We had the best campsite and enjoyed the sounds of other families having fun, nothing too loud or too crammed together. If you are looking for something... More

We absolutely loved staying at Ford Cove! We had very friendly service over the phone and the gentleman gave us directions and also recommended we sign up for BCFerries Experience Card which saved us $40 in ferry costs! The campsite is quiet, cozy, with nice green space, a great view of the ocean and of the moon at night. The... More

We stayed for three nights in a clean, comfortable and spacious cabin with a full kitchen. The view from the deck and the front rooms was spectacular of the channel between Hornby and Denman Islands and the ridge of mountains on Vancouver Island. It is a quiet location at the end of the road about twenty minutes from the ferry.

The cottages are rustic just like a cottage should be but they also have every convenience. We spent several days in one of the cottages, the mattresses are really comfortable. We slept a little later than we usually do. We cooked breakfast, the kitchen is well equipped. It is so quiet and peaceful there. We have never seen the night... More

We love Hornby Island so dearly but we will NEVER again be staying at Ford's Cove. We did not feel safe, the policies are nonsensical and nobody was very helpful at all. When we showed up for our two night stay on May long weekend we were in for a few surprises! After getting no confirmation email after making our... More

Unfortunately when you did not show up on your check in date the reservation was cancelled and you lost your deposit to hold the site. We called you after the last ferry had sailed and you said you were spending the night in Parksville so we held the reservationn for you arriving early the following day. We email a confirmation...

Just returned this afternoon from two nights of peace, quiet, and tranquility in this campground. We travelled in a Eurovan Camper, just needed electricity, and washrooms/showers. The owner, Matthew, and his staff, are very personable and helpful. The washrooms are clean, the new outside sinks for dishes, and the grounds are all indicative of the pride they take in their...

Decided last minute to go to Hornby something I have always wanted to do. Nevertheless we were late as always showing up on the last ferry etc. To my surprise upon arrival there was someone to greet us at that late HR. Amazing place to say the least.

We booked a cabin over New Year. The cabin was warm and very comfortable, with a fully modern equipped kitchen, with all bedding and laundry supplied. The cabin we used had a TV and DVD player and a week without TV was wonderful, although the majority of cabins do have TV installed, if you should need it. We took two... More
