“Apt Name”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

My son and I travelled from Scotland to Powell River for a week of sea kayaking (Powell River Sea Kayak Ltd - see separate review) we stayed in Beyond Bliss for 2 nights, 1 each at the start and the end of our kayaking trip.

As we didn't have have a car for this part of our journey we wanted somewhere within walking distance of the ferry terminal. Although they were all excellent there were only 3 reviews on Trip Advisor so I was little nervous about the place and this wasn't helped by the slightly unusual appearance of property in street view on Google Maps. But I needn't have worried.

On Sun 10th June my son and I were met by Chris (husband of and co-owner with Sheona) in the Salon. There are 4 suites upstairs from the salon, and although there is an adjoining door to the salon the suites have a separate entrance hallway accessed directly from the street. The suites are lovely. Ours (304) consisted of entrance with storage cupboard, fully equipped dining kitchen (fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, cooker etc, all cutlery utensils), open plan lounge, bathroom with a deep spa bath/shower, fluffy towels and comfy robes and a large bedroom with king size bed. The apartment is tastefully decorated in modern-American style with televisions in both the lounge and bedroom. The air conditioned lounge, with foldout queen sofa bed, opens onto a balcony looking west over the harbour to the mountains of Vancouver Island. The apartment is quiet and spotlessly clean. Chris recommended eating at the Costa Del Sol mexican restaurant located almost immediately opposite - great recommendation - see my separate review.

We were booked into BB on Sunday 17th but due to bad weather we finished our kayaking trip a day early and phoned to check availability, unfortunately BB was full. We stayed a night in the Westview Centre Motel. Rated number 4 in Trip Advisor it's a dated group of chalet cabins that are badly in need of updating and a bit more thorough cleaning. But the owner was helpful given the short notice and at $78CAD the rate was reasonable and it was close to BB. The contrast helped to show just how good BB is. I have happily paid three times the rate for lesser places in major cities. Beyond Bliss should be your first choice if travelling to Powell River.

Room Tip: For a quiet room with a view ask for a suite overlooking the harbour.

We missed the apartments with the view, but were so pleasantly surprised with the quality and luxury of this fully equipped apartment, close to all the amenities and restaurants and lovely coffee shops. When one has never been to a city, one does not know the lay of the land. I can without reservation say that this is the spot where you want to stay. Close to the start of the beautiful pleasant trail. And please!! We did not have the time to go to the spa, but it smelled really good and would have loved to spend some time there. It is clean and modern and welcoming. Everything in the apartment is good quality and well chosen, but I have to mention the bed. It was beyond bliss!!

Room Tip: Ask for the view...if it is available

Unexpectedly beautiful and quality modern decor of a fully furnished apartment. Full size kitchen was more then we needed. Cosy fireplace and a flatscreen in e lounge. Second flatscreen in the bedroom. Very comfortable bed. Heated bathroom floor. Walk through bathroom. All spacious and with new furnishings. Clean. Good location within the walking distance from the ferry. The city centre (read main commerces) is about 10 minutes walk.
There is no 24 hour reception, but we had booked the room around 6pm and arrived with the last ferry around 10pm and had no problem to pick up the key aftere telephoning the owner (?).
We haven't had time to take advantage of the spa adjacent to the hotel, shame. Wish we could have stayed longer and if we ever visit again there is no other place we'd rather stay.

Had an opportunity to stay two nights at the Beyond Bliss Suites in Powell River, BC. The suite includes a full kitchen with dishwasher, stove, fridge and microwave, living room, bedroom, bathroom and balcony. The suite was immaculate, comfortable, tastefully decorated and extremely quiet. The balcony of our room faced west and overlooked the ocean. We will come back to Beyond Bliss for an extended visit in the near future. This is an amazing property.
