This was our 12th year in a row visit to Painters. We always enjoy relaxing at this resort. Longtime staff members are excellent and make you feel welcome. Melody that works in the dining room deserves special recognition. Her excellent service and friendliness towards her guests makes her really standout at the top of her profession.
The resort could use some updating and is showing signs of age. Air conditioning would make the summer evenings more comfortable especially in the rooms with an upstairs bedroom.

If you are going to stay in Campbell River, you have to stay here. The property is well kept and nicely laid out, the room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Winding down after a long day of fishing at the pub was great. All views are spectacular!

Thank you for this great review. The Tyee pub is a great place to relax and swap fishing stories from the day and we have live music every Friday night to help welcome in the weekend. We look forward to welcome you back to this famous fishing lodge in the future!

First time here. Wish I would have booked more days. We will be back. Fishing, hiking, biking and site seeing boat riides. Spa is also available at April Point. Water taxi between properties is free. This open up Quadra Island for some exploration.

There is almost too much amazing Vancouver Island wilderness to explore, isn’t there? I am delighted that you enjoyed the activities on offer and embraced the adventurous spirit of Painter’s Lodge and the surrounding area. Thanks for the review and we look forward to welcoming you next time.

Beautiful placed hotel at the waterfront just a short car ride outside Campbell River city center. The hotel has big rooms, a nice little balcony, pool, and some very good restaurants - we had dinner at the bar both nights and even watched a whale meanwhile. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Skip the dining here - you won't miss a thing. Our meals in the dining room - all five us- did not enjoy. We were repeat customers but now find rooms are old and rough around the edges. Beds comfy tho.
