The location is perfect, right at the end of Cowichan Bay's main street, with a stunning view of the harbour and bay. The large windows provided perfect entertainment: we often curled up with tea at the end of the day, watching the boats go by and seals swimming laps right below our window.
Our room was enormous, almost too big, with lots of empty space, but can't really complain about being able to spread out. The kitchen was modern, with newish appliances, and a few utensils for cooking, although it wasn't the most equipped hotel kitchen we've ever seen. We had to improvise a bit to cook some meals. The kitchen and bathroom were very clean, although the window railings were so dirty and covered in bird droppings, we never wanted to lean on them while looking outside. The bed was comfortable and we always slept well there.
We checked out the gym and pool. They were pretty good, and the restaurant upstairs has a lot of potential. There was a cute little space designed to be a wine bar near the restaurant that was seemingly deserted. Maybe they will open up something there in the future.
The hotel was undergoing renovations while we were there, so it looks to improve further.More
