The Crest is beautifully situated with views of Hecate Strait. The public spaces are nicely decorated. Our room had two beds overlooking the water.

The Crest is beautifully situated with views of Hecate Strait. The public spaces are nicely decorated. Our room had two beds overlooking the water. The furnishings and decor were lovely but the room was not at all spacious and the bathroom the tiniest ever experienced over many years of travel. It had a pedestal sink so no counter to put anything on and only one tiny towel rack. The hotel is a short walk to Cow Bay where there are lovely shops and restaurants.The local artisans co-op had some beautiful reasonably priced items. The fresh fish at Dolly’s Fish restaurant was so good we went twice. Read less

The location is great as you are centrally located to walk along the shoreline, to visit the parks and to shop. Check in and check out worked well. The staff were very accommodating. The room was clean and the shower was impressive.The wifi worked well and we had a marvellous view. The staff were sensitive to the covid-19 concerns.

We booked a double, city view room. I did not realize that this meant no air conditioning and no window seat. As I have stayed before this was an unpleasant surprise. The room was hot and stuffy with the only alternative to open the sliding window located above the entrance and smoking area. As the hotel has a popular bar and restaurant it was busy and loud. The front desk was unsympathetic and said I should have known when booking this class of room. Not sure how as it is not stated on the website. So if you go, be sure to clarify the room amenities and location. Also, this hotel has faded bedspreads and no duvets. No service in the room for four days. That’s ok during a pandemic but would have been nice if my request for some more coffee and garbage removal had been honoured. Otherwise a nice venue with an excellent restaurant. Read less

We overnighted before catching the Ferry to Port Hardy the next morning. The room was great, breakfast good. Would stay here again. Judging from the folks we saw on the ferry, we weren't the only folks who took advantage of this hotel's facilities.

I visited Prince Rupert with my family, we stayed here for 2 nights, it is a nice hotel to stay, comfy with clean rooms. Its restaurant is waterfront, its food is very good. I would recommend this hotel.
