Thanks to the first days of cold November weather, my mind meandered back to the warmth of summer vacations, and in turn, to the Old House Village Hotel & Spa. For two consecutive summers now, we have flown from Toronto to Vancouver Island to spent part of our vacation at the OHVH&S, relaxing in the spa, lazing by the pool, and resting soundly in our suite.
Having lived and travelled abroad for many years, vacations are no longer about exploring as they are about finding a place to rest and renew. The OHVH&S has become one of those places for us.
The accomodations are clean and comfortable. (Book a room/suite with a river view and watch the tides ebb and flow) The service (both hotel & spa) is amiable and considerate. And the location is surprising. (Though it is tucked behind a series of businesses along the main street, the river side of the complex is quiet and green. Walk down the riverside path, and stop for a coffee at the marina. Its a great way to start the day.)
Do not be put off by some of the less than glowing reviews on this site. I have experienced terrible hotel service and accomodation in my travels. The OHVH&S is not on that list.
...and when you book your reservation at The OHVH&S, be sure to make a reservation for dinner at LOCALS. It is a fantastic restaurant that specializes in sourcing locally grown / raised ingredients. Its the perfect conclusion to a day spent in the spa.
