We enjoyed our meal but the food was not overly hot! The coffee was even cool! We mentioned it to the waitress and she got fresh coffee. I would have rated the food as excellent if it had been hot as it was very tasty!!

Large room but divided well. View of pool in daylight. Booths or tables. Large portions. Classic turkey dinner very good, seafood pasta had very small shrimp & scallops cooked too long while prawns just right. Friendly service. Washrooms a bit of a trek but are up to date & clean.

Our group of six stops in Stamps once or twice each year on our way to fishing in Bamfield, B.C. The bar/lounge is decorated with various sports memorabilia and has a number of large-screen televisions tuned to various sports channels, both Canadian and U.S. We order a variety of food and I have never heard a complaint from my mates....

We stayed at the hotel for two nights and the breakfasts are wonderful. Omelettes are cooked perfectly and the toast is toasted! (not warm mushy bread) We had one dinner - the turkey cutlet special and the turkey dinner. They were both very good. Service is excellent (Thanks - Phyllis!)
