We loved the stay, we found it by driving around by and the views were great. The staff were so helpful and this young lady opened up the pool early just for me. The area was great to explore and we enjoyed the different cafes. on the main street.

We had the suite which was huge for three of us. Decor is dated, but the rooms are very clean, no complaints. Electric fireplace was great and needed as the window and door was a little drafty. Great view of the harbour. Very helpful front desk.

We stayed for a week in a two bedroom unit on the third floor. Wonderfull view of the harbour. The facility has an indoor pool, weight room and sauna. The room was well appointed and very comfortable, the staff very friendly and accomodating, a great stay.

Cleanest hotel and room we have ever stayed in!!

It may be a bit dated, but the location, bang for the buck can't be beat. On the water, walking distance to a bunch of great restaurants and many services on site. My only complaint would be the hot tub is WAY over chlorinated and in 5 minutes our eyes were burning and watering and we couldn't stay in it....

We stayed here in August, 2015. All the units have a harbour view which is fantastic. Units are comfortable and living area is very large. Bedrooms average size and beds comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. However, generally the decor is somewhat tired looking and needs updating. Pool is nice; jacuzzi OK. Location is great for exploring the Blue...

Staff friendly, maybe too friendly. On check in and check out we waited for lengthy visits to conclude between staff and other guests. A lot of room for the money. We had a studio that had a nice queen bed, a sleeper sofa, sitting area and a kitchen. All for under $150 a night. The place is a bit worn...

We went here using our time share points for a winter get away. We booked a 2 bedroom fully equipped suite for a week.

We got here twice this winter and will keep coming back for our ski weeks. Last time we had a recently updated room, this time one an older one, but all in good enough shape. We think of RHR as rustic charm and we like it that way. The recent fix up of the pool area is nice. The staff...

Stayed over the Christmas break with my family. Great Location however, the place is very worn down, ran out of hot water after one shower. The room we stayed in needs updating. Very worn and outdated. 2" mattress on the pull out which left the kids with sore backs. This could truly be a great place to stay with a...
