I wanted to have dinner while overlooking the beach. I was given a table overlooking the beach and had almost as good a view as from the patio with none of the hot sun on me. The host and other staff were very friendly and had time for a little chat (special thanks to Dave.) I thought the prices were... More

I don't normally dine in hotel restaurants, unless there are no other options. I didn't feel like wandering far even though within walking distance of a few restaurants of this hotel. As a solo visitor it felt okay to stop by without a reservation on a Friday night, even though it was very busy, the hostess greeted me with an... More

We were here in summer as well as just this past weekend. Food is yummy! Service is great! Had the chicken club with yam fries - daughter had flat bread and yam fries. Both were delicious.

Breakfast was great and they really looked after the kids, but the dinner left a little to be desired for the prices they charge. The kids' meals were great, but the adult meals were not quite what they promised,

Received a voucher for 2 free lunch entrees as part of our stay booked through BC ferries vacation. The service was great but the food was so so. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here if I was in Parksville. Lovely views and accommodating wait staff made up for the uneventful food.

Had dinner and brunch the following day with vastly different experience. The waiter at dinner was funny and engaging and knew his stuff. The brunch was offering a granola parfait as a starter which comically turned out to be served in a shot glass with a tiny spoon, the food was tasty but the servers were disinterested and apathetic.

In hotel restaurant with pricy menu and some quirky problems. Firstly, the chairs and tables are not matched for height and I found myself sitting too low, despite being a reasonably tall woman. Was advised they were working on rectifying the mis-match on their chairs and offered the option of sitting on a folded table cloth (no thanks). We ordered... More
