We had a nice stay at this hotel recently. We were in town for a family wedding. The hotel is in a great location, right on the water. Most of the rooms have lovely views though we were only level 2 and had a tree blocking most of ours. We were also above a smoking area which wasn't very pleasant. The view from the back room was even worse, looking into a dingy little storage area. But we just walked out to the front of the hotel to enjoy the view. There is a nice little sun deck area and tables and chairs for you to sit and enjoy, as well as a pool and a gym. We didn't use the pool or gym but certainly would have considered it if we had stayed longer.

The town of Cowichan Bay is a charming little place with some beautiful surroundings. We went to the Pub for dinner one night and the food was quite good. This hotel was a convenient base for us and we would certainly consider staying again if we were in the area.

Spacious rooms. Very friendly staff. Nice place to stay. In the middle of everywhere you would want to go. Clean and comfortable. Kitchenette is nice. Needs upgrades though. Pool was ok but no towels and very old. Cupboards in the hotel were also dated, but still nice. Definitely stay here again.

We stay at Oceanfront Suites for 2 nights to attend a wedding in Cowichan Bay. Our suite on the 4th Floor was comfortable and quite large, breakfast in the restaurant was good with great views over the bay. I feel that a number of reviews perhaps do the hotel a little injustice for the prices charged. For a 1/2 night stay it worked for us. Staff were friendly and helpful, Cowichan is a small place and worth a visit if you are touring around Vancouver Island

This hotel has a beautiful view, BUT it is extremely noisy. All the rooms open to a very busy common courtyard, along with an open pool, and so even with windows closed you hear pretty much everything. In addition they host weddings and so we heard loud partying, swearing, drinking and smoking right outside our window until at least 3am.

Great Trails,

The Oceanfront Suites has a variety of guest stay with us. Yes, some of them attend weddings that are here at the hotel.

However, as with most hotels, The Oceanfront Suites has systems in place to deal with guests whose celebrations bother other guests. I hope that you called the Front Desk and let them know that you were being bothered. Our Staff has training and proceedures specifically designed to solve this sort of problem.

I hope your next stay with us will not only meet, but exceed your expectations.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

This place exceeded my expectations. We had a very clean comfortable room with lots of space and a view of the harbour. Would have preferred a room on a higher floor without trees blocking the view but it was fine. The decor is average to below average but it's a clean place with comfortable beds. It was good to have the fridge and sitting room. We slept like babies. Easy access to town, and it was helpful to have the free parking there as it's hard to find a spot to park in town. The service was very very friendly. A pleasant place to stay.
