Older hotel with updated rooms. Indoor pool was nice after biking but hot tub was not very hot. Room was great with separate bedroom and 2 TVs. Hotel has a restaurant but didnt eat there. Lots of places to eat with in walking distance. Very soft beds.

Our second time back - clean, comfortable, courteous staff. Great location. We particularly enjoy the town of Cowichan Bay - lots to offer along the waterfront. Most enjoyable for either a walk, look through galleries, stop for a bite to eat, book a whale watching tour.

Spent a great night here in late April. Gorgeous views and room was very well appointed. Hotel is adjacent to pub which was a great spot to spend evening. If you get to this off beaten track area, stay here for sure and you won't be disappointed. Reasonably priced one BR suite made the weekend great with a smiling and...

The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Maid service was excellent. Rooms were run down, shower curtains so thin the water goes right through them and soaks the floor. Towels are old, worn and thin. Pool area and change rooms need a major overhaul. View from the rooms is nice. Restaurant was closed but we knew that beforehand. Overall,...

Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They never stop smiling! We stayed on the 2nd floor and the views from both the main room and the bedroom were peaceful. We kept the drapes open so that we could watch the ocean at any time and it was beautiful to wake up to. The hotel restaurant was closed for the season....

We have stayed at this hotel twice before and enjoyed our time there very much. This last visit over Christmas, we were very disappointed. We brought our teenage sons with us as we have family in Duncan so a very convenient spot. Add to the location, a beautiful view of the Cowichan Bay and marina and it really is ideal....

Cathy, I'm sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Our Restaurant is in the midst of a seasonal closure, it will be reopening in the spring. The decision to close the restaurant was a sudden one, and we were unable to inform all of our guests, as we would have liked to. Our rooms do not, and...
