“Great Stay!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We stayed at the Old House in July for a wedding and didn't realize we had booked a suite (as that was what was reserved for the wedding guests). Needless to say, we were pleasantly surprised (SHOCKED!) upon check in when we learned we would be in a suite. The living area/kitchen was spacious and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was fully equipped and we enjoyed several "home cooked" meals, rather than eating out, including BBQ'd steak- there was a common area/patio complete with a BBQ right outside our door. The bedroom was a bit of a tight fit, but the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. There were 2 TVs in the suite- 1 in the bedroom and 1 in the living room. There was also a washer and dryer- a luxury we were not expecting while on vacation. The pool was nice, clean and had a great view. Along the back of the hotel was a bike path we enjoyed. Staff was very friendly. The continental breakfast was decent, nothing out of the ordinary. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return in a second! The only downside was that the rest of hotels we stayed in on our vacation paled in comparison :)

8 of us had travelled up from Sidney to stay in this very nice comfortable hotel for one night to visit the Filberg Festival at Comox, which is approximately 15 mins away by their convenient shuttle bus. My husband & I stayed in a one bedroom suite - large, clean, with full well equipped kitchen, even a washer & dryer, living room & dining area, & a deck overlooking the river.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Hotel. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and your visit to the Filberg Festival as well. Just a quick note that not all of our 1 Bedroom suites have washer/dryers and to ask for the first or South building if you would like one.
We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to the Valley.

Our 2nd floor inside corner room was very spacious, clean and quiet (I would ask for a pool side room. The pool itself was clean and having a change area beside the pool meant I didn't have to travel back and forth to my room in my swimsuit. The pool patio furniture is comfy and clean. The grounds are nice to stroll in and border the waterway and with a pastoral setting beyond that. Great having a courtesy shuttle to and from the Filberg Festival.
Although we didn't eat at the attached restaurant it appeared to be full and we were told the food is pricey but well worth every dollar.
The Courtenay/Comox area is so welcoming - We would definitely return to this area and this Inn.

Room Tip: If you want 'quieter', ask for a pool side room. Our 2nd floor inside corner room was just t...

We didn't get a chance to use the pool area but we took a peek and it was well furnished. I'll go back when I have more time to lounge around. Our hotel room was a suite with a full kitchen. It is quite new, clean and spacious. Bonus: the original old village house (beside the hotel) is now a restaurant called Locals and serves up a nice fresh west coast menu. There is a bike path in front of the hotel.

I was working in Courtenay for the week and wanted to combine a family mini-vacation with my travels. The Old House was perfect. The pool, proximity to the bike path and downtown shopping made it our choice. It worked out perfectly and our family would definitely recommend. Compared to a standard hotel room………..no comparison.

Super nice rooms with a small kitchenette in the room. Mindy was nice enough to change our 2nd floor room to one on the 3rd. That we we didn't have anyone walking above us. It was a very quiet night for sleeping. Room also has a gas fireplace. There is also a small pool and hot tub which was very enjoyable. Love the area.
