This was our planned trip up the sunshine coast and over to Vancouver Island. Our plan only allowed for one night in Powell River but wish it had been more. I try to find hotels with some character rather than the regular chain sameness. The Old Courthouse Inn has character and much more. I can understand that people might not be impressed with the location near the lumber mill but there was no smell and the area was completely safe. Understanding the history of the area (thanks to JC) just makes the location that much more interesting. This is the original old company town and much nicer than the newer town next door. As other have said, the hotel is full of interesting antiques and many pictures. I found our room very comfortable and roomy. The bed was great and we had the room with the bathtub which was really nice. Did not find the prices out of line especially since it included breakfast. The breakfast is just wonderful, you have to have the eggs benny! It's all so fresh and tasty. JC recommended the Alchemist restaurant for dinner and we couldn't have been more pleased. Will write a review on that too.
Considering this is under new management, JC has managed to immediately make a statement that he is out to do all the right things. I wish him luck, thank him for a memorable stay and encourage others to try it out.
