I am a "local" and this restaurant was THE place to go when celebrating ANY occasion (many years ago). Through the years, both the restaurant and the hotel have sadly gone into disrepair......so it was wonderful news that there were new owners and that major...More

Had a Breakfast buffet here and loved taking in the view with the meal. Nothing improves the view like a good meal.

Our room was on the 2nd floor facing Quadra Island (opposite the street) so there was no noise and the view as cruise ships (and other water traffic) sail past is very nice. On our stay we were able to do day trips to explore...More
