The fries are better at the Kitchen, but the burger is better here. I don't know if they use pickle brine, or if that was mustard, but it was delicious and juicy. I can't speak for the burgers at Woodfire, but this might be the best burger on the island.

My husband and I used an Island Daily Deal certificate to come here and enjoy a night on Gabriola as we had never been before. The island is beautiful. The view from the accommodations was amazing and seeing the ferries cruise by at night was especially lovely. As it is a very old lodge there are definitely some quirks -...

Thank you so much for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit. Just wanted to let you know that none of the Lodge rooms are over $200.00....even in high season. Come back and visit us again!

My husband and I visited here after finding it on Island Daily Deals. It was so quiet with a spectacular view. Basic rooms but very clean. All staff were friendly and greeted us on arrival and departure. Would take a half point off because the beds were not as comfortable as they could be but it would not stop us...

This is a fabulous place to go for drinks. The pub in particular has a wonderful view, cozy tables and a fireplace. Really nice place to spend an afternoon. Really nice people working there. If you're a smoker, there's a comfortable covered outdoors area with sofa, chairs and table under a deep deck that you can access easily from the...

Lodge is in a good location; situated on the shore facing the Georgia Straight. It is just a short - 10 minute - drive from the ferry terminal. Owners and staff are very friendly and do whatever they can to make your stay comfortable. The lodge has been there for a long time. It gets continuous TLC from the owners...

Thank you for your review. The original Lodge was built in 1929. The current owners of the Surf Lodge are continuing to keep the old rustic charm while still providing our guests with as up to date conveniences as space allows. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our Surf Lodge and hope to see you again soon.

We stayed a night at the Surf Lodge and I have to say that it is a very interesting place. It is an old building and that means not perfect. At the Surf Lodge it means a narrow staircase, dark paneling, some low ceilings, loud plumbing (water hammer) hot/cold/hot showers and weird stadium type seating in your room (#8). If...

Hello all. Didn't stay at the lodge but had a great dinner in the dining room. The Surf has gone through some struggles over the years but it's firing on all cylinders now. Great food, excellent service, attentive managers that clearly care about the success of a long standing iconic Gabriola island land mark. Well worth a visit.

First off I would like to point out that this is a review of the pub on it's own as we did not stay at the hotel itself. I tried to find the pub on it's own on Trip Advisor but they report it as permanently closed which is absolutely not true and I informed trip Advisor of this to...
