Quaint older property right across the road from the sea and a nice park to enjoy. The location is very quiet with no street noise after dark. The rooms are a bit dated but pleasant.

This is a very clean and tidy hotel right across the road from Cowichan Bay and a nice little park. There is very little traffic and a quiet nights sleep. The room was very clean and comfortable. Al in all a great stay.
