This lodge has so much history and character to it. The setting is gorgeous and if you are interested in fishing, this is the place to go. Great fishing guides, excellent dining room and staff.

I was here for a two night / three day trip. My basic two queen room (305) in the Cortez building was comfortable, cool (temperature) and clean. They had two big oscillating fans to keep it chill.

Staff at marine centre was fantastic. Water in our shower kept alternating from hot to cold. Carpet stains in living room. Loud music from Pub till 11pm. Balcony door problems. Maintenance was hesitant to come up because it was close to his finish time. Guest satisfaction would have been better if guests were offered a small gesture like comp upgrade...

We live in Campbell River and so know all about Painters. We wanted to get away for a special birthday and found that Painters was perfect. The room and food were perfect, then we took the boat over to have coffee and dessert at April Point.
