My husband and I were looking for a home in the area, we booked into the Ginger Giraffe for a couple of nights. Located in a very nice neighborhood of Comox, close to downtown, marina, airport, golfing and skiing, everything really!!
The owners, Lloyd and Nancy, take great pride in their accommodations and services. Their hospitality is very warm and extremely helpful as to what is happening in the area…the where to go and what to do. The rooms are superior, we stayed in the African room and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept on. The room décor is beautiful and stocked with snacks, mini fridge with complimentary bottled water, very large closet with robes and flip flops for the hot tub; iron and iron board. There is also internet, TV, microwave….everything you may need available.
The breakfasts are fantastic. Obvious is the fact that Nancy and Lloyd take a lot of time in the preparation and quality of breakfast served in the morning. A five star breakfast that does not leave you feeling stuffed. (for those of you who do not enjoy “the big breakfast in the morning, don’t worry you will love it, we had a different breakfast every morning) We very much enjoyed sitting at their breakfast table, easy going in nature they are a very entertaining couple with a great sense of humour. They will have your breakfast ready for whatever time you request the night before….do not sleep in and miss this breakfast! (although it may be hard as the bed is so comfortable).
Their B&B borders pasture land, we enjoyed viewing the deer and cows from the deck. (so close…you could almost reach out and pet them). Moo and Spuds (their cats) are very entertaining and Moo can do tricks if prompted by the right treats.
I am writing this review as I use tripadvisor reviews (an invaluable resource) for all our trips and book accommodations and plan our attractions/sightseeing from the reviews. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the Comox Valley or locals who just want to treat themselves to a luxurious night away from the kids. Note to families, this B&B is not set up for kids.
