Stayed here while my home was being made wheelchair accessible. The room was comfortable and worked well even though my 28" wide wheelchair didn't quite fit through the bathroom door. All of the staff were pleasant and accommodating. The food at the restaurant was good, especially if you like fish tacos.

This was one of the noisiest hotels we have ever stayed in. The old timber frame structure transmits noise from the adjacent highway, between rooms, corridors and floors. The heating and refrigerator units are also noisy in the rooms. We needed a good night sleep on a business trip and didn't get it. In addition it seems to attract kids...

Thank you for your opinion. Here is the history about the hotel. It as constructed in 1980 out of concrete & steel beams with 8" walls. A standard then & a standard now. The heating units in the rooms are 1.5 years old & the mini fridge's are 2 years old. The Cowichan Valley is a huge hockey/sports town. Just...

If the type of service provided by the male bartender is commonplace, I will NEVER return again. Stopped at the pub on my way up Island and experienced the most disrespectful bartender/supervisor I've ever encountered. He was rude to customers, had a terrible attitude and berated his staff, who were clearly trying to pick up his slack by the looks...

First of all I want to apologize for what you experienced. The Food & Beverage side of the hotel is leased out by another company but do have to adhere to the Best Western rules. In speaking with them we have identified training that must be done and will be doing so in the next few weeks. We hope you...

We needed a convenient place for one night to visit friends and relatives in Duncan. This place is next to the highway - a two story building with an attached restaurant and lounge. We were worried about road noise over night. But we were given a room at the back, and heard nothing. The room was clean, the queen-size bed...

This hotel is located right off the highway, so it can get rather noisy at night time. The hotel was completely booked solid so I was unable to switch rooms - no earplugs provided or sold at the kiosk downstairs. Internet is slow/doesn't connect - would not recommend if you're travelling for business.

Thank you for your review. The highway traffic is something unfortunately we cannot control hence the noise. We do have complimentary ear plugs available at our front desk for people who are light sleeper. Our internet is has been great up until a few weeks ago when there was an upgrade. Our IT company has since identified the problem, which...

The room was sufficient. Nothing special and the bathroom was kinda small and old but it was just fine. The bed had a duvet which was much nicer than those horrible sheets. No breakfast included but for our purpose that was fine. We stayed here because it was close to shawnigan lake (20 min) and we came from the lower...

We have always stayed with family in Duncan until recently when that was not an option anymore. Cowichan Valley Inn is a very neat, clean hotel, with an excellent pub with great food. This was our 2nd stay here. The staff is friendly and super nice, and the hotel itself is comfortable and quiet.

When I first arrived, the age of the building had me concerned... however the room was clean and comfortable, and the toiletries were eco friendly. There is no elevator, and noise transfers quite easily between the rooms and the hall, but there is plenty of parking and the staff were friendly.

Thank you for your review. Our building is older but we keep doing updates and renovations so our guests are comfortable. There are more updates coming in the future.

We met a friend here for a very late lunch, we were the only people in the bar. The server was very nice and food was served quickly. We tried the clubhouse and the chicken pesto melt, both were average, but better than regular deep fried "pub" food. I am sure they get a lot of traffic here in the...
