We were a group doing the Queen Charlotte track. While the view from the hotel is lovely and the rooms are tidy and clean the hotel is generally in poor repair. The outside areas need a big clean up and the gardens are tired and...More

Amazing resort. Food and wines are locally sourced and served by knowledgable and personable staff. Waterside location makes it the perfect place for romantic getaway or wedding!

There is nothing wrong with the apartment. You have as stated on the internet page the view, a good bathroom. But there is something lacking in the bedroom as in the public areas. Like the new management does not know if they should go Indian...More
