Spent two nights here and the view and location are lovely. The bedroom lamp did not work so I reported it. It was not fixed. It turns on but if you get into bed it flicks off and won't come back on. It is the only light in the room so you end up in darkness. There is no closet...

38Trish, We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations, and was not up to our standards as represented by our other reviews here on Tripadvisor. I will review your comments with the other Department Managers and our General Manager to try to remedy the lack of closet space in some of our rooms. Our Gym hours have...

We stayed here with my inlaws in a 2 bedroom Executive suite. I was expecting a little more for some reason. Maybe it was the price. We paid $270/night so I then expect the best of the best - especially for Vancouver Island in the winter. Our room was nicely done and we had a corner unit which was nice....

I'm sorry that you stay didn't quite meet your expectations. We strive to make every guest's stay a positive and pleasant experience. Unfortunately there are times when we are not able to accomplish that goal. For example, it is difficult (nearly impossible) to find a bed that provides everyone with the perfect night of sleep. We do our best, but...

When we arrived, the front desk person seemed distracted/confused and sent us to the wrong room. When I went back to ask about it, she issued me new keys for the right room. The view from our room was amazing. The amenities in the room were a bit basic, but still nice.

Dan, I'm glad that your initial experience at the front desk of the Oceanfront Suites at Cowichan Bay was offset by the balance of your stay! Thank you for the comment about the amenities. We are in the process of choosing a new line of room amenities and should have them in our guest rooms before the end of February....

Rhonda, we are so pleased that you enjoyed both of your stays with us! We're sorry that the Hot Tub was out of commission during your last stay, but getting parts over the Christmas - New Years week is a real challenge! Thank you again, and we hope that your next stay will be just as pleasant.

We come here every December as a place to stay after the company Christmas party. The suites are spacious, clean and comfortable and the view is outstanding. Breakfasts are consistently delicious. The location would be an outstanding spot for a longer stay while exploring the area. The little village of Cowichan Bay is a treat year round but in December...

This hotel was hard for me to rate as I place a lot of value on cleanliness and newness, but I know that for other travellers, different factors are important so I want to be fair by saying my preferences at the start.
