“Outstanding service--you need to stay here!!!”
Reviewed July 4, 2011

Wow--we really cannot say enough about our wonderful stay at Blue Willow Guest House. My fiancee and I were greeeted by the lovely and very knowledgeable owner who was beyond generous and helpful during our stay. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. We loved spending time in the Garden and were blown away by the amazing homemade breakfast--comlpete with homemade scones!! Maxine even sent us on our way with some extras!!

If you are travelling to Qualicum--you must stay here!!

The Blue Willow has great personality, the rooms were spacious and clean, the breakfast gourmet quality and the owner, Maxine, welcoming and a delight yet not intrusive in any way. Truly a home-away-from-home our quiet suite included comfortable beds, a big tub as well as a separate shower, a selection of DVDs and books to relax with or the opportunity to enjoy the garden.

We will definitely stay again and recomment the Blue Willow to friends and colleagues.

Beautiful room! Gorgeous garden and surroundings. Maxine is so friendly and helpful. Her breakfasts are to die for. A piece of heaven away from home. We have stayed here on several occasions and look forward to more in the future.

Owner left out key for me as no one was there when I arrived. Hall and foyer were under construction, carpet torn up. Room crowded with furniture, thick curtains, no fan in very hot weather. Room had toilet & sink, shower was across the hall in a bathroom undergoing remodeling. Very large antique bed with frame & mattress, which had been piled with foam and covered with a mattress cover. When I tried to get out of bed in the middle of the night, I slid out of the high bed onto the floor, hurting my knees. Bathroom across hall contained 2 large boxes, floor not completed, shower and bathtub, clean towels. Owner charging full price for the room despite the remodeling. She did not mention when I called that the shower was across the hall from the room. When I left next morning, within 2 blocks I had a punctured tire, possibly from the remodeling work being done on the place.

This is a lovely B&B with lots of character, it's like a little English cottage. It is situated on a half acre lot and you are encouraged to wonder around the garden or sit at one of the seating areas to listen to the birds and see the butterflies hover over the flowers. Books on the local wild life are also available for use while enjoying the garden. Our room though small was tastefully decorated and the bed was very comfy, the room could have done with a dusting and there were dead bugs in the toilet which had obviously been put there after being killed but had been forgotten to be flushed away. Though the room was dusty it was understandable as to why it was like that as there were some renovations happening near the room so I am sure it was hard to contain the dust while the reno's were happening. Maxine is a delight, a wonderful hostess who served a three course breakfast that was to die for......home made granola, ginger and pear pancakes and scones to follow all with the choice of tea, coffee and juices. Maxine clearly loves running the b&b and meeting new people. Once breakfast was served she sat and joined us at the table to chat for a while. We would definitely stay at Blue Willow again.

Blue Willow is elegantly casual with grounds that have the best of English gardens, one riot of flora woven next to another. The house is wonderful, quiet, and inviting. And the breakfasts? Maxine will do great things to you. This is the B&B experience you've been looking for.
