We stayed here overnight on our way to Spirit Bear Lodge.
It was a wet and windy Sunday afternoon so the few shops were shut, there was nobody around and nothing going on.
There was only one channel on the TV which consisted of adverts every few minutes.
We passed a few hours having a meal and listening to local music in the bar but basically it was dead!
The rooms in the resort were the most un-comfy I've ever come across.The shared bathrooms are basic but clean.
Dede was very helpful when we were told the next morning that the boat couldn't get out to pick us up due to the weather and kept us informed of progress, so thankfully we didn't have to spend a second night.
