We stayed for 4 nights in this lodge. First impressions in the room matched first impressions as we landed on the island, ie. in desperate need of some money spending on it (especially having just left the up market city of Victoria). The room was dingy and tired, and a real disappointment was finding a plastic sheet over the mattress...

We chose Alert Bay Lodge from the description on their website and the excellent reviews it had received on Trip Advisor. It sounded right up our street - quiet, hearty breakfast, excellent views, plenty of walking, wildlife etc. etc. Unfortunately this was not the experience we had. The island itself was quite derelict, with many businesses and restaurants closed down,...

I’ve discussed your concerns with Rich, who manages the lodge with his partner, Emma. We are all very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and apologize for the inconveniences you encountered. As you can glean from previous reviews, we pride ourselves in the high level of care we provide our guests. Many of these reviews cite Rich and...

As soon as we walk into the door we felt right at home. After spending the last 2 weeks in noisy and impersonal hotel room, the lodge was such a delight. But what made your stay so special, was meeting Emma & Rich. They both went out of their way to make us feel so comfortable. Emma cooking was amazing,...

I had a really nice stay here at Alert Bay Lodge - its very basic, but the perfect place to get away from it all. The decor is very rustic, and is probably due for an update in the next few years but they have been kept very clean over time, and had everything you can expect when travelling to...

We regard the location of the hostel and its interieur (living room) as realy nice and we would advocate this area. However, it was promised to provide a war breakfast which was never done for us. Furthermore, the nice (sleeping) room lost its charming character since the installation of the shower ruined the athmosphare. All it all the price is...

Sorry about the shower in Room 4 - it is functional but can be noisy. A hot breakfast is available (as it is every morning at 7:30 am) and we were full when you were there - so we don’t what happened! (Continental self-serve breakfasts are set up at 6:30 am). Feel free to contact me at reservations@alertbaylodge.com and we’ll...

A lovely location, a beautiful building, a cozy and rather pretty room (room 1) a charming couple for hosts, and even a friendly, happy dog (hey girl... ARF!). Hard to ask for more - but of course, there *is* the island itself, its people, the museum, the local artists, the whale-watching... we would have stayed much longer if we could....

Just returned from a wonderful trip, traversing the north side and coast of Vancouver Island. One of our stops was at Alert Bay Lodge, a former church, perched on a rise fronting the magnificent strait on Cormorant Island, a ferry ride from Port McNeill. Lovely four room B & B with good breakfast choices, a "great room" with windows overlooking...

I could not have been happier with the wonderful service provided by the Alert Bay Lodge during a recent trip to Cormorant Island.

We spent 3 nights in this amazing and laid back lodge. Emma and Rich are real great hosts! It was a pleasure to meet them and Susky, the very friendly dog. Alert Bay itself is just a great place.
