Wonderful hotel to stay at. Very clean and spacious, amazing hosts that give you great advice on what to see and do. Very close walk to downtown area and very quiet at night with a lovely balcony to enjoy some fresh air. Highly recommended and would definitely stay here again.

We just walked out of the Queen Charlotte track that day and we’re looking forward to a comfy bed and a place to do our laundry. The site managers were great people really accommodating and helped with our every need. Thanks for a great experience. Cheers Jb

The room was clean, tidy and tasteful. The hosts were welcoming and responded very quickly to any requests. It is a great location in terms of access to the city. It was great to have a little patio to sit out on.
