Although we had no luck with our fishing excursion, Painter's lodge staff are always so kind, accommodating. The place is a great getaway to unwind, breathe some fresh air. THe rooms are spotless, but showing some signs of wear, and could use a freshening up.

We spent my BIG birthday at Painter's Lodge but probably would not go again. The resort is very much geared for fishing and if you were not there to do that, it seemed staff were not much interested. Our second night there, the resort hosted the end of year party for April Point Lodge, their sister resort, which was extremely...

I am saddened to hear that you felt that our Crew were only interested in those who were fishing, I can assure you that we aim to treat all guests with warm and efficient service, and that many of our long-time guests do not partake in fishing or marine activities. I apologise that you were disturbed by the April Point...

Painters lodge had a great deal on for two nights accommodation and a 4 hour guided salmon fishing trip. My fishing buddy and I had a great experience. We are even trying to get on the list for an annual women's fishing derby that happens every June.

It is great to hear that you enjoyed our ‘reel’ deal fishing packages. Our fishing derby is always a sell out event and we hope to see you at one in the years’ to come. Thanks for the review. Sincerely, Dean Prentice General Manager, Painter’s Lodge

We stayed in the Cortez Building which is one of the furthest from the water. Parking was right by the building which was nice. The loft layout was great with two queen beds downstairs and 2 twins in the loft. There was a sitting area on the balcony which we really enjoyed. It was very warm out so it was...

The Rapids tour is such an exhilarating ride, and what a bonus to see the dolphins too! I am sorry that the lack of elevators was problematic for you. The addition of elevators is certainly something that is under consideration for future renovations. We are always happy to provide assistance meanwhile.

Unbelievable location, incredible ambiance, fantastic food, mind blowing fishing experience. The guide was knowledgeable, however, I believe his head may be swelled from his skills because it definitely shows in his demeanour towards men. Very arrogant, "I'm deadly and you're a peon" attitude.

Fall has seen the arrival of Chum salmon in large numbers and I am delighted that it provided you with an epic fishing experience. I am concerned by your reports of arrogance in our guides and will certainly follow up with your guide directly. Thank you for raising the issue. We hope to see you again.

The website needs work as it doesn't show when the tours are going so you can make a plan for when to go. It also doesn't provide any information on what to bring or what is provided so that you can dress appropriately.

Thank you for your comments. Some of our fishing charters and activities are run though external contractors and are arranged according to demand, and are dependent on weather conditions. For this reason we are not able to display availability online. I will certainly look in to providing more detailed information on expectations and preparations. We hope that you enjoyed the...
