We'd travelled from Tofino en-route to Vancouver for a 6 night stay there. Rather than have another nights stay in Vancouver itself we decided to have a night in Horshoe Bay, somewhere we've visited before but never stayed.
Check-in was easy, the room we had booked we were told had a very firm bed which some find too firm and we were offered the option to change which we took as I like a bed with some 'give'. The room itself was a reasonable size, well furnished, clean and had a decent bathroom. There was no air conditioning which was necessary but there were fans which at least kept the air moving but wasn't really a substitute. After my wife spent some time looking for a hair dryer we realised that we had to collect one from the reception desk, which I was promptly despatched to do, and we were told just to leave it in our room when we departed.
The location is good with the harbour itself a couple of minutes walk away and several restaurants also within a couple of minutes walk.
Overally a pretty decent stay. The bed for me was still bit too firm but my wife thought it was great. For the rate we paid it was excellent value for money and we'd happily stay here again if we needed to.
