    • 10.0.Exceptional

      We loved the room it was perfect for our stay, the bath was so deep and relaxing and the Pool/Spa area was a perfect retreat. It is located within walking distance (15-20mins) of the village, which offers great eating experiences in addition to the hotels restaurants. The staff were so pleasant and always friendly and nothing seemed to be an issue for them, we were made to feel part of the hotel not an inconvenience which was such a pleasant change. A couple of small points that may help improve future guests visits are that the sofa bed in our room was a little uncomfortable to sit on for long periods as the cushioning appears to have lost it's bounce and you could feel the frame, secondly the Pool/Spa area at times felt a little over run by day spa users and perhaps a dedicated hotel guest area could be made a available.

      5 * Hotel in a fabulous setting with great staff

      Stayed in the hotel with my family ( 3 small children) for 3 nights, as we explored Vancouver Island. The staff were very welcoming from the beginning - attentive whilst giving you space and helpful without being over bearing. The room was very clean, beds extremely comfortable and bathroom with a strong power shower and large bath. Restaurant breakfast and dinner was excellent and again the staff managed the balance perfectly. Having 3 small children can be a challenge , but they made it very easy for us. I'd have no hesitations in going back again in the future.

      a ray of sunlight during Covid19 pandemic

      Very comfortable, pleasant stay. I was glad to be able to charge my vehicle. My family was able to join me and we had a pleasant evening together despite the government restrictions. I truly sympathize with the hospitality/small business industry during this Covid 19 pandemic and the restrictions imposed on us.

    • 6.0.Good

      Location, hotel and rooms are beautiful. We ate the Sung and food and service was amazing as was the service at the mineral pools. The disappointing part of our stay was that the bath tub plug wouldn't hold, fire place would not turn on and the bed has to be one of the most hard, creaky and uncomfortable beds we have ever encountered at a hotel!

      The grounds at the property alone are well maintained. beautiful view of the ocean from the mineral pool and hot tub. I loved the fresh flowers and plants spread across the hotel, great touch. We ate at FARO which is a restaurant on site. The pizza is to die for if you enjoy an authentic stone oven pizza. Service starting from the vallet, guest registry, pool side attendance to restaurant were fantastic. Overall great stay, I honestly have no negative reviews. Thank you!

      The hotel is beautiful and the pools and hot tubs are great. We really liked our room. Only complaint is the food isn't the greatest for what you pay...
