We're so glad we chose the Oceanview Guest House for our short stay in Campbell River. We arrived on the ferry at Comox and found the drive up to Campbell River (the coastal road) to be straightforward and in places extremely scenic. Directions provided by the guesthouse were spot on and we were warmly greeted by the owner, Carolyn who was extremely pleasant and friendly throughout.
Our room was essentially the guest wing of a large modern detched house on a newish development on the hillside overlooking the coastline south of Campbell River (about 10 minutes easy drive from the town centre). We were enormously impressed by how new and spotlessly clean everything was, the high standard of the decor and furnishings - and by the amazing range of facilities thoughtfully provided. This included a washing machine and dryer, which was just what we needed to do some mid-trip clothes washing. Carolyn even brought down an ironing board so we could finish the job - just like home!
We chose to have breakfast in our room though we had the option to go upstairs onto the deck. The breakfast delivered to us the next morning was really superb and professionally presented, definitely the best we had on our whole trip, with delicious yoghurt followed by an interesting twist on bacon and eggs. We're still talking about this breakfast 2 weeks later!
Our only regret was that we didn't have time to stay longer. We're now thinking how/when we'll be able to return to this fabulous guesthouseon a future holiday.
