We sadly were only able to stay for one night, and we absolutely loved this place! We had a gorgeous view from our Cypress Suite accomodation. We were visiting with our grown up son and the room was plenty big enough for the three of us. We were a bit confused trying to book as looked at booking.com and always try to book on the website first, but although booking.com said we could do 3 adults, the website would not let us, but a quick phone call confirmed that we could as it was a family member etc and we booked directly with them. Being Aussies and visiting Canada in winter, I brought my hot water bottle (!!!) which I accidentally left behind. They called my son, found out where we were - in a cafe and about to get on the ferry - and drove the hot water bottle down to reunite us which we thought was amazing service! The location was great and the cafe underneath for breakfast was fantastic. Everything about the room was perfect - really comfortable even the sofa bed for our son, gorgeous toiletries - we all smelt like roses! And lovely to have tea and coffee making facilities. It was so warm I did not even really need the hot water bottle!!! Thank you for a lovely stay!

I stayed in the Parkview Suite which faces the Artisan circle and shops. The room was very clean and well appointed. Fresh water was supplied along with tea and coffee. Checkin and checkout were easy and communication was good. Another plus is being on the second floor of a building with a cafe on the first floor! I had breakfast at the cafe everyday. The food was quite yummy, folks were nice, and the views are beautiful. Additionally, getting to hiking areas, from the suite, and other spots around the island was very easy. I’m so happy to have stumbled upon these suites and look forward to my next stay.

We couldn't have been happier with both Bowen Island and the Artisan Suites. We wanted to do a pre-cruise chill in a beautiful natural setting with comfortable accommodations and Artisan Suites was perfect. The room was clean and well-equipped, the bed was very comfortable and there were little amenities all over the place ranging from oatmeal for breakfast to large bottles of water to amazing scented lilac soap that was actually made and sold right next-door. Beneath the suites is a cafe that we enjoyed for breakfast several times and lunch one day. And if we had any questions, Julie the owner, quickly responded. And see the beautiful view from our Cape Suite below.

The Suites were located perfectly and very nice. The view was incredible. Bowen is a very lovely place to visit. We were visiting where Virgin River was filmed which was fun. We plan a return trip because it was so beautiful.

A perfect place to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Beautiful room with amazing amenities. The café downstairs had great pastries and a good hot breakfast. Had to take a box of baked goods home! The island itself was a great place to get away for a couple of days!

We're so glad you had a great anniversary getaway and that we could be a part of it! Having a cafe located below us with a French baker doesn't hurt!

This hotel is definitely an excellent choice on the Island. Easily accessible parking near the hotel. Very clean, very well maintained and peaceful. It had 2 large windows in the bedroom with views of the ocean and Mount Gardner.

A lovely small hotel - My Gardiner room is great with the balcony. Exceptionally clean & tidy place and staff very accommodating for a baby. Main bed & sofa bed both really comfy, and overall experience was very good. Easy check in and out too.

Ms. Julie Cree, Owner, arranged our Booking and we were more than delighted with our stay at Artisan Suites on Bowen Island. The uniqueness of our Cape Suite (only 3 other Suites on Complex) overlooked the Mountains and Waters…Cerville, an Artist and Worker at the Artisan Suites had our Cape Suite ready before our check-in. The King- size bed and Rain Shower was also an added plus. The overall stay and Celebration of my Partner’s 75th shall remain an indelible memory for us! As a treat, the Artisan Cafe located below our Hotel is also a must to visit….

Perfectly modern, clean and inviting boutique hotel above a little restaurant that serves the most incredible baked goods, soups and more. Our room was big and bright with a balcony overlooking a charming cul-de-sac with a variety of Bowen Island shops and art galleries. Relaxed vibe during the day and very quiet at night, we couldn't ask for anything more. Will definitely stay again. Highly recommended!

I was shocked and surprised my great friend she booked few nights hiking and relaxation at the Artisan Suites on Bowen Island , it is like hotel style boutique suites over a coffee shop , I believe they have four different suites to choose from , price not too bad at all , well under $200 , per night , but rate is different from day to day still very reasonable , very quite not crowded at all , the rooms amazing spacious , clean , lovely views of the ocean , mountains , bathroom not a hair can find , well stock of towels , beds very comfortable with soft bedding . very charming place . so if you looking for a mini great escape , this is the place and keep Artisan Suites in mind , good place to stay .
