We stayed for one night at the hotel. The room was clean, comfortable and nicely done with aboriginal art pieces on the wall and the bathroom mirror. When we arrived, the staff was super friendly, guiding us to hiking trails and proudly showing off the unique features of the brand-new hotel. For dinner in the restaurant, we had the crab...

This rebuilt hotel is beautiful and comfortable! Owned and operated by the Gwa'sala-'Nakwaxada'kw Nations, it showcases area First Nation artists' talent. The dining room entrance and walls bear incredible masks and other artworks. The rooms are very well appointed and tastefully highlight indigenous themes. I ate in the restaurant twice during my stay. The menu is creative and offers lots...

The hotel is stunning, rooms are super comfortable, modern and well-equipped. The staff were wonderful, and the decor was stunning!

We visited the hotel to have dinner in the new restaurant and were very impressed with the decor, staff and the meal that was served to us. It was excellent. On finishing our meal we were given a tour of the hotel and we were very impressed with the rooms. Excellent addition to Port Hardy.

From the moment I arrived I was impressed by this newly renovated hotel. Beautiful artwork by local first nations, friendly and helpful staff and a super comfortable bed made my stay very pleasant. I was attending a conference off the site but did get to enjoy one dinner which was fantastic. Fresh halibut, prepared perfectly - delicious!

We were looking forward to our stay in this new hotel before the ferry.
