I had a fantastic stay here. The room was well equipped and a lot of attention was on the detail, which you really appreciate when you travel a lot. The staff was incredible! Super friendly, super helpful - absolute superstars. The area around the hotel is generally quiet and the walk to shops and restaurants is only 7-10 minutes along the beautiful bay. I am already thinking about booking this again.

Very reasonable rates, liked the convenience of the kitchenette, very comfortable beds, easy walking distance to all the shops and restaurants along Cowichan Bay. Will definitely book here again the next time we have a dance competition nearby!
