8/10 Very good

Three stars
This is an older hotel with every room facing the lake. Recent remodeling has keep this facility competitive with other hotels. Helpful staff and a decent continental breakfast. We stayed three nights due to weather. It was a good place to recoup after a busy travel schedule.

The stay was fantastic, the only the issue I had was the bed was not that comfortable this time. The room was ok compared to the other rooms we have gotten it was not the greatest this time.

Nanaimo treasure
This was an awesome hotel! We loved everything about it - the friendly staff (especially Lenny), the cleanliness of the hotel common area and our room, the view from the room of the lake and the nice balcony to enjoy it, and the delicious continental breakfast. We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it.

Great Stay
We had a fantastic stay here for one night. I had a request and it was met without any issues. The beds are very soft and comfortable, the room was clean and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was really great, I was impressed with the quality and offerings. It’s very peaceful on the lake and a lovely location, I would not hesitate to stay there again at any time. We didn’t use the hot tub but I’m sure it would be great, it’s in a little gazebo by the lake!
