“Could've been much better!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

The First Nations BC Elders Gathering activities were restricted perhaps a little too much by the PT&CC. When First Nations Elders live as long as some of us…a little respect, life-long learning goes a very long way! Inflexible rules & regulations can appear shameless and controlling simply because the 'authorities' do not take the time to research, become culturally knowledgeable and find a way to accommodate generational desires of expression! I would not book such an event here again…unfortunately

“Great venue for the Regional Bridge Tournament”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Within walking distance to most beach front motels (on the Lakeside Hotel side). Lots of free parking. The venue was large with lots of washrooms catering to the convention crowd. A park is nearby to enjoy a picnic lunch or fresh air. There is one motel literally across the street, but it looked rather run down and definitely budget!
