Randy Hooker - Winnipeg, MB

Just came back from staying a week at the Cedarwood. Right from the get go our vacation was awesome, thanks in part to Peter at the front desk. Had a very enjoyable discussion with him when I booked the reservation & made us feel quite welcome upon our arrival. The rooms are comfortable and was terrific having a kitchen for making meals etc. The shower pressure was awesome, and looked forward to waking up each day!
On the water and across from a terrific walkway along Lochside park - can't beat this location on the Island!
To finish things off we had a large family reunion and invited immediate family back to the Cedarwood. The centre grass entertaining area was put to use and made for a wonderful day! Several patio sets and ample chairs in a colorful setting, was perfect for hosting an event like ours.
Overall great experience and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the suites.... highly recommended if looking for accommodation in the area.

The staff were very helpful. The rooms could use some renovations. The said it was within walking distance of the town, but you would have to be fit to walk it. Discovered on our last day that there is a bus to get into town and back. It was convenient for the airport

Room Tip: there are no restaurants near by. You either have to take a good 10 minute walk if you are fit, or...

Firrst I want to comment on how accomodating the staff was while we were at Cedarwood. Any additional request we had was dealt with immediately from requesting a microwave to getting my earring out of the sink drain. You don't find that kind of service in the franchise hotels.The location is absolutely gorgeous - looking directly at the water. We were surprised at home convenient it was to the ferry port. This is definitely the Inn I will stay at next visit to Sidney. Thanks again to all of you.

I live in the Gulf Islands and have to stay overnight someplace when I fly out of Victoria Airport, tried somewhere else in the past and it was a little sketchy so someone recommended this place and what a great decision. Got to park my car there the week I was gone, taxi arranged to pick me up, and my room was waiting for me when I returned the following week late at night. Really lovely gardens and the room was clean and comfortable. The best part is the really friendly staff, made me feel safe and taken care of during my traveling. Loved the location, spectacular ocean view, beautiful seaside walkway right in front and just a short walk to Sidney downtown, lots of restaurants and shops. My trip began even before I left! Would recommend this place to anyone travelling to and from the airport and would be great as a longer stay too. In fact my husband and I are planning that for sometime in the future! Really lovely spot, great service.

Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night at the Cedarwood but would have loved to stay longer. The grounds are lovely and overlook the waterfront. All the rooms were clean and equipped for longer stays. We were accommodated in a beautiful suite with amazing vistas. The staff were helpful and courteous. We were within walking distance of downtown Sidney.

The name is well deserving not only because of all the cedars growing outside in the gardens, but the exterior AND interior walls are all cedar too. The outside looks really clean, updated, modern and very well taken care of...in the rooms, clean but old and behind the times. The beds aren't that comfortable and the suite we stayed in (sleeps 6) really doesn't have the room for that many people. Very crowded with all the furniture they've got going on in the rooms.

The staff at the front desk are pleasant enough, especially when we had to keep asking for towels (6 people only 4 towels) everyday.

The ocean view and garden views help make up for what the rooms lack. The price, we went through my business and got a discount, was still overly pricy for the room. Especially with no swimming pool or hot tub and no breakfast included.

Location was convenient for where we needed to be however.

Room Tip: Pick an upstairs room very quiet.

We enjoyed our stay at the Cedarwood. The flooring was newish, and the rooms were clean. Furniture and bedding was dated but comfortable. Good internet connection. Good views from the room.

They've done a nice job updating the curb appeal. The only negative was that the rooms are lined with tongue and groove cedar (very 1960's) which has been oiled. The smell upon entering the room is old and dusty (though there was no dust that I could see).

Great staff, great reception.

Room Tip: Room is over crowded with furniture if you have to open the hide-a-bed. We moved the coffee table to...
