    Superb

    Location right on the water. Ping pong table outside and mini golf. Plenty of free parking. Balconies for each room. Well kept and comfortable. Good rate.

    It was a place tom stay on a 5 week trip.

    The morning beeakfastarea was too small. Not enough room for a full house, I asked for another type of room. This one meant hard walking on hills for me with my walker.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were efficient & friendly plus we were close to the places we wanted to visit in Courtenay & the surrounding area.

    I would suggest that you not rent the units with a loft to anyone with disabilities especially seniors.I say this because of possible falls & consequent injuries.

    Good

    The breakfast was way better than expected. Very good.

    We didnt like the fact that we couldn't use the pool. Also, we would have booked a bigger suite. It was a little squishy with three of us in one room. We would defintely stay there again but get a bigger room. We had friends stay in the room with a loft and that would have been better for us.

    We really enjoyed our hotel room. The loft was perfect for a family of four with two young kids. The beds were comfortable the room was clean. I looked at the pictures on the website first and was happy that the room was same as the pictures. The continental breakfast was great too we didn't expect to get so many choices and good food.

    Fabulous

    Nice room, with good facilities. Swimming pool, hot tub, dry sauna and fitness centre were all availoable and none were crowded. Located right opposite the sea edge, with possible walks along the shoreline, but no real 'beach' - whilst we were there, anyway. Very easy to find on the coastal route north, because it is placed before Campbell River centre.

    The cooked breakfast was not too well done - a type of egg (not to sure if it was an omelette or not) plus sausage 'patties' - a sort of sausageburger. The only local restaurant to walk to was next door and the food was average at best - though it was also 'cheap'. The hotel was further out of Campbell River than we were expecting - not in walking distance of the centre and because it is on the coast road there is no immediate access inland because the rest of the outer part of the settlement is on a bank 80 feet or so above the coast road.

    Very good

    We had heavy bags and the room was on the ground floor which was good. The room was clean and tidy with a nice veranda to sit on (if the weather had been better)

    We were not given the access to the internet - although free I would have expected the information to have been easily found in the room, but there was no information. The door leading from outside to the hallway to our room was very heavy to open and very close to the vehicle parking which made it quite difficult to get our bags in and out of the door way.

    Very good

    The bed was comfortable enough and the room was very clean.. I liked the location - right on the waterfront and we were able to watch the cruise ships pass by us on both nights we stayed here. The gardens are beautiful. Parking and internet are free and there was plenty of parking on both nights.

    The room was too small for two queen beds plus our suitcases. It was very difficult to be able to open the verandah door to sit outside because of the limited space. One bed would have been perfect for the size of the room. The floor of the verandah was constantly wet - I think the plumbing needs to be looked at. The breakfast was good and there was plenty of variety. I wasn't impressed with the disposable plates and cutlery in the breakfast room. It was very hard to try and cut with a plastic knife.

    Exceptional

    We stayed in the room with the loft in Campbell River, the room was excellent, room for the kids without beds in the way, had chairs and sofa to sit on. Room was great.

    Wish they had a child gate to put across the stairs at the top.

    Very good

    Easily accessed and spacious - vey atractive garden.

    The hotel is faulty to the extent that the room was split level with the beds upstairs and the toilet and bathroom downstairs - the stairs were steep and could be dangerous in the night for older people particularly. The breakfast was adequate in terms of being continental, but certainly not one to spend time over. Access to the roomas from the parking involved many steps - no lift.

    Very good

    The room was clean and the location across from the beach and walking trails was perfect for us.

    The room was really small, and having two queen sized beds in one room gave us very little room to maneuver.

    Very good

    My husband and I enjoyed our stay, it was quiet and relaxing. All of the staff were very friendly. I received a call about an hour after our arrival to see of our room was fine. That has never happened before, and I have stayed in a lot of hotel rooms. The hot Continental breakfast was very good and I liked how the dining rooms faced the Seawalk and the Strait of Georgia. My husband used the gym and we used the swimming pool and hot tub , it was a refreshing walk outdoors back to our room.

    The room was nice

    The sauna and pool were closed for yearly maintenance. When I booked using Booked.net it did not mention this. I actually chose this hotel because it listed a Sauna.
