“Best Motel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

We are from Saskatoon, Sk. and when we go out to Vancouver Island this is where we stay every year. It is a gorgeous place , the rooms are always very clean, you can do your own cooking if you desire and the view out the back of your room is wonderful. And to top it off the people that own this place bend backwards to make sure you are comfortable and they are a pleasure to get to know. We will be there this April for sure.

Room Tip: Just take our word , you will love it.

Walk out the front of the hotel, and take your pick of the many Qualicum Beach attractions within easy walking distance along a bustling street. Walk around back and stroll along paved walkways through a beautiful and homey English flower garden (complete with fountain), or on a peaceful, uncrowded beach. The rooms are simultaneously cozy and spacious, with full kitchen and bathroom, a noise-cancelling bedroom door, and a private balcony.The rates are extremely reasonable for all the amenities, probably because the manager's top priority really is to provide her guests with a comfortable and enjoyable stay at a home-away-from-home. Claire checked us in personally, offered us all the coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and cider we could ever drink for our room, and just as we were about to drive away after checking out, she ran outside to give us each a fresh peach for the road.

This is the best place to stay in Qualicum Beach! The rooms are beautiful with magnificent ocean views and access to the beach! We called it "our paradise"! We had such a wonderful experience that we will definately be back again and again. The gardens are absolutely the best!! We believe that this is the hidden jewel of Qualicum Beach!!

Wished we had found this place it earlier and had been able to spend more time here. The hosts were charming and helpful, the accommodation was lovely,clean and right on the beach. We stayed in the Georgia suite which had a well equipped kitchen and bathroom, a lovely comfortable bedroom/lounge area with a tv, but with such beautiful views out of the big windows to the beach, sea and mountains we never switched it on, who would need too? There was a balcony with chairs and a table and it was here that we spent most of our time eating, drinking and enjoying the view, the boats on the water, the sunset and sunrise. Through the pretty gardens there was access to the beach. Easy parking right by our front door, peaceful and with good local restaurants within walking distance this was a great place to stay. Thank you to our hosts, Claire and Rob, we will be back!
