I'm not sure about BC humour and whether the Hotel brochure author's claim that this property is "Northern BC's greatest treasure" was written with tongue-in-cheek however notwithstanding the hyperbole the Hotel suited us admirably !
As a seasoned traveler you get a sixth sense about how good a hotel is by the behaviour of the staff towards their guests. This litmus test works well for me and I can report that without exception the Hotel's staff were extremely courteous to us from the front office to the wait staff in Craves, the restaurant, where the food was top notch. Special mention should be made to the lady in the breakfast area who was a gem.
As for the beds they were very comfortable ; bedding was very acceptable even the pillows were good. The no-charge bottled water in the fridge plus the Aveda brand toiletries added to the enjoyment of our room.
So did we have any complaints ?
The lack of wi-fi in the rooms and in the common areas needs to be addressed. As a result our i-pad was inoperable. When will Hotels realize that they need wi-fi in addition to high-speed-internet ?
Also the availability of an airport shuttle seems to be a little bit of an empty promise. I ordered taxis on the two occasions that we had to go to the airport with no offer to take advantage of the airport shuttle vehicle.
Also a second easy chair in the room would have been useful : there was certainly room enough.
And finally next time you get your brochure reprinted remember "We're Canadian eh" and spell Centre properly !
