Everything about this place is excellent. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. The pool and spa is beautiful. The staff are so welcoming and helpful. I stayed here with my 3 daughters that were visiting from far away. So very happy we chose to stay here and will definitely be coming back.

Stayed in a pet friendly first level room with a nice view of the hotel pools and Salish Sea. Beautiful accommodation and staff was friendly and warm. Ate in the casual cafe bar and the dinning room, excellent gourmet food. Mineral pools and swim pool were immaculate and warm in the brisk October air.

Very private and quiet...highly recommended!… Read more

My Girlfriends planned a stay for my 36 birthday here. Let me tell you it was amazing from the moment we checked in . Their attention to detail was amazing. Even the front desk wished me happy birthday . Karina who planned this special day for me made it effortless. Once we arrived in our breathtaking suite it was time for relaxation . They had a beautiful surprise of birthday treats . Also great wine glasses and if your a wino like me thats important. The view was breathtaking.. you have to see it to believe it. We had dinner at the Snug .. the food was excellent service just as good. Ill definitely dine there again even if im not staying in the hotel. After dinner we headed to the mineral pools that were so lovely and warm just what we needed . Did I mention they serve cocktails at them . If your looking for a romantic getaway or just a getaway with friends ... even a staycation this is your place . Im already planning my next visit !! So thankful to all the staff for making my birthday the best one I have had in 36 years . Read less
