Liz is an excellent host and her B&B is very nice, comfortable and clean. Breakfast is delicious. She was very caring and had a lot of good recommendations and tips for our time on Gabriola. We really enjoyed staying at her place and highly recommend it.

Stayed for a couple of nights. Great room, comfy bed, perfect pillows, great breakfast. Very accommodating hosts. The hot tub under the stars was a nice way to end the day. I would defiantly come back.

I was pleasantly surprised with our stay here. The owner, Liz, was friendly and accommodating. The bed was very comfortable, and the dual headed shower was appreciated. We enjoyed a great soak in the hot tub here as well. Breakfast was delicious. We opted to pay a little more for hot entrees, and weren't disappointed. Good value here. Will stay... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review and share your experience at our B&B. Time is precious and we really appreciate your time. This is the first year that we give guests the option of saving money by opting for a continental breakfast. although I always enjoy the opportunity to spoil guests with the full breakfast. More

The Island of Gabriola holds many surprises, and one of them is the Arbutus Bluff B&B. There's something unique about a residence that is designed to include bed and breakfast suites, and this one was clearly designed with that purpose. There is lots of privacy, yet Liz was extremely welcoming and helpful. Staying here reminds one of staying in a... More

This B & B is located away from it all and is perfectly designed for a get-away. We stayed for two nights with friends and each couple had a lovely bedroom with ensuite 3-piece bathroom, and we had a common area with a fridge, microwave, dishes and cutlery.

Nice room good shower and bed if you travel a lot those are two important things to have. Great view and because you are on a bluff the eagles and other birds fly very close from where you are.

We thoroughly enjoyed this B&B away from it all. Very relaxing, although not too accommodating for inexperienced bicycle riders like us! Found a trail through the park going back that was much easier to ride. The food was delicious and the bed very comfy.
