“Clean and comfortable - Horrible Parking Issues”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2011

This property is lovely and has a lot to offer. It's clean, comfortable and the staff is a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Annabelle.
We stayed in a loft suite and it was ideal for us, HOWEVER, parking is atrocious. There's a club on the property and out of our 4 night stay, we were unable to find parking, without a nice hike, 3 of those nights. They were during the week and we were actually supposed to stay on the Friday night but left a day early. If it's impossible to park Monday to Thursday, I wouldn't want to know what it's like on a Friday, so we moved on.
It is a lovely place though and a little pricier than most in Campbell River but if you don't mind a huge inconvenience where parking is concerned, you will definitely enjoy everything else.

Room Tip: Make sure you have no one above you and that you're not in the area of the club.

On our trip up-Island we stayed one night in Campbell River. Our unit was spacious with a separate sitting room, comfortable beds and good breakfast included- a great incentive to stop there again on our return to Victoria. Our 2nd stay was even more appealing-a room with a loft, balcony and kitchenette. A bonus was the free Saturday Globe and Mail. The breakfast room was busy this time with a school group but we were able to take our food back to the room and feel right at home with our newspaper and coffee. There's even a walking trail just across the road. A comfortable, attractively landscaped hotel that offers good value.

We stayed at this hotel while on a golf trip. the room was fine and we had a small second room for our daughter with its own TV, nice touch. the bathroom was fine no real complaints they have a continental breakfast that was nice with a waffle maker. Overall I would say it was good for the money and would stay there again if needed.

Room Tip: we were on the 2nd floor ( top floor ) less noisy

The hotel is on the waterfront on the southern end of Campbell River, overlooking the Inside Passage. Facilities are very good, the staff were all very friendly and helpful, the room well appointed and comfortable and breakfast was plentiful and with a wide choice offered.

Reception at this hotel was friendly and helpful, even though we arrived at 11pm with reservations for the wrong day. We were given the last room. It was clean and comfortable, but as I am handicapped I was shocked to find that the two queen beds were in a loft! No way to change at that hour, so I had to climb the stairs every three hours to get to the bathroom. So, disabled beware--evidently 'chalet' means 'loft.' Aside from that, everything was good. Place was quiet, breakfast was Best Western style, staff was hard-working.

Room Tip: Check about lofts if you have trouble walking.
