Blenheim, Canada
Reviewed 20 June 2016

Your staff, both at the front desk and in the restaurant were pleasant to deal with, helpful with directions and always smiling. Great place to stay! Rooms were comfortable, the only thing I would have wanted that we didn't have , was a microwave. But that wouldn't stop us from staying there, or recommending it to others.

Stayed here on way to Tofino. Great value. Clean, quite and great value is what we look for and it's what we found. Staff was very friendly. There was a lot of people fishing in the area which added to the location. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Wish the weather was a bit warmer so we could have used the pool but enjoyed our stay and found the staff very accommodating and the room was quite even though we have the window open. Enjoyed the wedding banquet every thing was perfect there.

This was a good final stay on our way home from Bamfield fishing trip. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and have a fridge. Breakfast was very good with a 20% off coupon even better. I thought the price for a basic room was a little bit high for the area.

This hotel has been kept up nicely. The rooms are kept well with good furniture (including comfy bed and hide-a-bed) and bedding. The pool is outdoors and was clean and had lots of seating. The only downside was the old heating unit in the room. We turned it down as low as it would go (60 F) and it never...

Nice room, great linens on the beds. Has all amenities- lounge, restaurant, etc. Both meals we had were disappointing (breakfast, evening snack). Would not eat there again, but would stay. Easy to find, centrally located A bit pricey, but not too many other choices Noisey, but necessary, air conditioner in room.

I stay only stay at The BWB when I work in Port. It's close to all amenities, clean and well priced. I tend to eat out so I havent dined at the hotel restaurant much, but it seems fine. Oh and the cable(TV) package is good.

Visited for one night on the way to Tofino. The rooms are clean and well equipped. There is a nice sports bar, and a cafe. The pool is small, and the gym is old, but with an effort, you can do a nice workout. A big plus is the sauna and whirlpool... Very good experience indeed.
