We stayed here for 5 days a in renovated suite on the 5th floor. The suite included bedroom, living room, small kitchen & bathroom with rain shower. The views were spectacular! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We found the kitchen too small to do any serious cooking (no oven, small Fridge) but we understand the rooms below us...

The Oceanfront Suites at Cowichan Bay offers friendly service and lovely views from all their rooms. There are some great restaurants nearby (Masthead), challenging but scenic Arbutus Ridge golf course is about 10 minutes away and lots of local wineries in the vicinity. The kitchenettes in the suites could use some updating and definitely could be better stocked. Our kitchen...

Such a beautiful location, super friendly and accommodating staff and an awesome and welcoming pet policy. Will definitely return one day. We stayed in an "economy" suite which was still huge and easily housed my wife and I and our baby and dog.

I walked in without a booking looking for a room for one night. The front desk staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful and the suite I was given was more like a large apartment. Everything clean and working. I have paid a lot more for a lot less in other places. The only downside was the restaurant which I thought...

It is with slightly mixed feelings that I give a 'very good' rating to the Oceanfront Suites at Cowichan Bay...however, our experience there was better than 'average'...a 'good', perhaps but not really the 'very good' that I rated her...however, if I were to use a metaphor to demonstrate how I viewed her, I would say that she is like a...

Colleen3850, We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us! Our building was completed in the early 1980's, with a different philosophy than that which a new building would have. We choose to look at these differences as Character Traits not Deficiencies! Wouldn't life be awfully boring if everything was exactly the same? Our Elevator does tend to grumble...

We had a spectacular two-room suite. Both had very nice televisions and good WiFi access. One room had an equipped kitchen (stove, microwave, refrigerator, coffee machine, pots & pans and utensils) and living area. The other room had two very comfortable queen beds. There was a free laundry (one washer & one dryer) available that could have been cleaner. The...

Stayed at this hotel quite a few times now. Great views and excellent service. Right on the ocean, huge spacious rooms all opening onto the bay. Great breakfasts. New upgrades on some rooms. Small bathrooms though. Pool and hot tub.

The food in the hotel is excellent and well presented with an amazing view. Our room also had an magnificent, ever changing view of the harbour. We were there in November and found the marble floors quite cold on the bare feet. I highly recommend slippers.

Stayed 2 nights here last fall for a reunion weekend. Loved the location. The suite was like a 1 bedroom apartment. The bedroom was kind of small for a king bed, but there was a whole separate living, dining, and kitchen, like you would have in an apartment. We never really used that, but the bed was comfortable, and the...
