Bella Coola's Eagle Lodge
Ranked #1 of 6 Bella Coola B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 24, 2011

The location is very convenient (close to the ferry and airport) and the setting is beautiful. Perhaps the best accommodations down in "the valley". Owners were very helpful and welcoming and did everything possible to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The dinners (pre- order) were the best surprise -- delicious to the very last bite, lovely presentation, very generous portions and great value!! Some moments that were reminscence of "Fawlty Towers", but all handled with good nature.

I just came back from a family finishing trip; Bella Coola is wonderful, the pink salmon run is fantastic, the mountain biking and wildlife are unbelievable but nothing compared to staying at the Eagle lodge.

I have rarely eaten as good a meal in a five star restaurant - and this was every night, night after night from the fabulous main courses, of salmon, rib-eye steak, prawns to the incredible cheesecake, pavlova, apple pies. If you are ever in Bella Coola and miss the chance to stay and or eat at the lodge I honestly think you will be doing yourself an incredible disservice.

The views alone will make you want to stay there for weeks!

We camped and used the outside cabin. There was plenty of space to put our tents and every morning started out with a truly empowering shower. The views in every direction are postcard perfect. The real treat though was the amazing food. It really surpassed my expectations as the meals were first class for any major city, yet with a home-y feeling. I will definitely be coming back and recommending it to all my friends. Thank you for a very memorable week.

What a great lodge in such a magnificent valley!
We have travelled 3 weeks in British Columbia, Alberta and Washington state, USA.
Eagle Lodge is the best hotel we have stayed at....ever. The rates for the rooms are very affordable. Just check on their website to make an opinion.
The lodge is maintained to perfection, the location is overwhelmingly relaxing, the scenery around is pristine.
The owners are just marvellous, very friendly, very knowledgeable of the area and the people. Plenty of great advices, always extremely helpful. You can even have a wonderful dinner cooked just for you; just give a 24 hour notice.
We enjoyed very much our room a 100%. THe quality of sleep is backed with a great bed and nights so quiet! We just felt at home.
All i can say is that we have been heartbroken to leave such a biautiful place: the lodge and the owners, the valley and its people.
So i would defenitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Bella Coola.
You can also park your RV, set up your tent in the green prairie.
You can relax around a fire pit for a very small price.
Eagle Lodge is the perfect spot to stay and feel like you are in paradise.
Have a good stay everyone!

Room Tip: Jim's room is great, the lodge's rooms are all great

You've answered a question I always have in the back of my mind. Does the marketing of the lodge accurately depict the reality? If you walked in and were disappointed, I'd know we didn't hit the mark. If you walked in and were impressed, we did it right! Thank you!!!

The proprietors and staff were extremely friendly and accomodating. They truely went out of their way to accomodate. My room was clean and quiet. The shower was shared with another guest and was a bit cramped but clean and functional. Internet was a bit slow but much improved over previous stays. The food was excellent - home cooking every night with a diverse menu.

Thank you for the warm review!

For those of you wondering about the "shared bath" - the winter of 2010/11 brought road repair crews to the Valley to work on the flood impacted portions of Highway 20. We opened every available room to house them and had the pleasure of accommodating most of them for months.

The room this guest is talking about was the small second bedroom in the staff suite that we used for those coming for shorter stays. All guests assigned to this room are informed of the choice when they make their reservation in case they would rather book elsewhere. It is gratifying to note that, without exception, the regulars have said they would rather stay in that room that anywhere else in the Valley!
