“Home-Feeling Accommodation, Awesome Complimentary Breakfast”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

First, I would like to thank Warren & Dee (owners) again for providing us with warm accommodation on last Friday night.

The room was neat, equipped and with home feeling. Not to mention the homemade waffle breakfast, my friends who saw my photos appreciate that. The fruit was fresh and local.

Unlike most other B&Bs, Willow Guest House provided us with exceptional customer service and care with heart. My friend and I enjoyed very much staying there over the weekend. Somehow I think it worths more to stay there instead of big hotels with similar rates (as breakfast for both are included which could save us 20-30 bucks)

I would certainly recommand anybody going to the Comox Valley to stay at Warren's and
Dee's Bed & Breakfast.
You will never forget their kindness and hospitality, you feel so welcome as soon as you walk into the door.
They have a beautiful decorated house, which is very enjoyable.
The Breakfast is incredible good, and the presentation makes it even better.
They are a wonderful couple with a wonderful Bed & Breakfast.
Highly Recommanded

Room Tip: Located just off Highway 19A, but B @ B is located at quiet location

My sister and I stayed at "Willow Guest House" at the beginning of our round trip through Canada in September 2012 and there we met a wonderful couple in Dee and Warren, our hosts. They made us feel at home with their warm and personal welcome and immediatly offered us coffee and tea. We booked the "Nautical Suite", a beautiful and lovingly furnished room with a lot of suitable details which we loved from the first second. We spent our evening in the homey living room with a view towards the ocean.
Breakfast was prepared by Dee and Waaren working in perfect harmony; with homemade yoghurt (delicious, Warren!) and cornmeal back bacon with French toast (also delicious, Dee). My sister couldn't chew very well because of a jaw operation and Dee and Warren prepared something special for her.
But what was the best B&B without its hosts?
And that makes "Willow Guest House" so special and unique... Dee and Warren are a couple who love to meet new people and we could see and feel that it is their passion to have their guests enjoy the most comfortable stay they ever had.

Dee and Warren. It was a pleasure for us to meet you and we will never forget you!

We had the absolute pleasure of checking out the Willow Guest House over the Remembrance Day long weekend. (They had offered a special rate for military members, and my hubby took advantage of it to surprise me with a weekend away). The rooms are beautiful, the views stunning, the food out of this world, and the company with Warren and Dee (owners) was just beyond compare. Made even more impressive by the fact that they've renovated this entire place by themselves, you just have to see it to believe it. Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a weekend away - whether from out of town, or wanting a 'Stay-cation' in the Comox Valley.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms to choose from, and you can't go wrong in either one. We were in the Na...

We had the pleasure of staying with Dee, Warren and their adorable dog Tet (we love dogs, but if you don't, don't worry because they do check you're happy first before letting her come and see you!) for one night during our recent stay on Vancouver Island. We used Courtenay as a base on our way up to the north of the island and it was such a beautiful area, we'd love to return here to see more of it. And we would definitely stay at Willow Guest House - no question! We are fairly quiet people and enjoy our privacy during holidays, so we tend to seek out more 'low key' bed and breakfasts. But the welcome here was perfect - Dee and Warren were just so warm, welcoming and hospitable - absolutely the perfect hosts and the role of B&B owners is just made for them. They welcomed us with a lovely cup of coffee and a chat, made an excellent recommendation for our dinner and showed us our room - the beautiful Nautical suite. It's an exceedingly spacious but cosy room where everything has been thought of for your comfort. The decor was so pretty, the bathroom was excellent with a great shower, the bed was comfortable - in fact everything was perfect. In the morning breakfast was served with utmost professionalism and friendliness, and was delicious. We were really sad to leave the beautiful area, wonderful B&B and lovely people. We really hope to stay for longer in the future - thank you Dee, Warren and Tet - everything was wonderful and you should be very proud of the service and welcome you give!

Room Tip: We loved the nautical suite but are sure the other room would be wonderful too!

As Christian & Erica have said they were only with us one night which was unfortunate as we seemed to "click" from the beginning...us dog people do that easily! We look forward to their return to our part of the world and wish them all the best...

My wife and i stay one night in this guesthouse, and that was a really good choice. We were very welcome by Dee and Warren. Both are so kind, we had nice talk at breakfast (in spite of my weak english)
Tha guesthouse is just outside of Courtenay so you can easily get a good restaurant not so far.
Breakfast was excellent and as says Dee "you don't leave hungry"
We'll stop here if we come again in Vancouver Island.
Don't hesitate.

Super endroit au calme a la sortie de Courtenay. Des hotes au top, gentils comme tout. Le petit dej est extra et copieux. Les chambres tres confortables. Vraiment mieux qu'un enieme hotel ou motel.
Highly recommended!
