Willow Guest House
Ranked #1 of 15 Courtenay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Through the use of Tripadvisor we were able to find this outstanding B&B. This resort is masquerading as a B&B. Wonderful well-appointed rooms, fully equipped individual bathrooms, breakfasts that are out of this world to towels for the beach. These amenities go well beyond the norm for a B&B. As for the proprietors, Dee and Warren, they are genuine, warm and welcoming hosts who cannot do enough to make your stay a memorable event. We look forward to our next visit to that area as we now consider a stay at Willow Gate House an integral part of our holiday.

From the moment my daughter and I arrived and were warmly welcomed by Dee and Warren, we felt right at home. They are such gracious people and the perfect host and hostess. Their sense of humour, interesting stories and genuine interest in their guest's comfort made our stay memorable and we were sad when it was time to leave. Their home is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Shelley and I enjoyed being able to chat with Dee and Warren as our breakfast was being prepared. It felt just like family. And breakfasts were absolutely delicious and so beautifully presented! Can't wait to return and would highly recommend this charming B & B.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Nautical Room which was spacious and had a lovely view of the garden.

WillowHouse was a choice among many in the area when we were making our selection. With Tripadvisor as a source of information, and nothing but 5 star ratings, we felt we couldn't go wrong in selection Willow House. And we didn't!

In addition to providing a warm, friendly, comfortable accommodation with a great view from the balcony, and a gourmet breakfast to boot, the home is owned by 2 of the friendliest welcoming people you could want. Warren & Dee treat you like family, and are a wealth of information on the Island. The stay at Willow House was a terrific start to our BC trip.

Room Tip: Room on the Street side has view of the water

We stopped on our way when we were travelling across Vancouver Island. Dee and Warren are both lovely people, I could not imagine two people better fitted for this job. They made us feel at home, and breakfast is AMAZING.
The only thing i am sad about is that we didn't stay any longer, but definitely going back

It was a pleasure having Nele & her husband Peter in our home. These are professional people who's time away is very valuable to them. The conversation was easy and yes their stay was far too short as Dee and I thoroughly enjoyed their company...Tet sends her regards!

Thanks to Dee and Warren for a wonderful stay in their delightful bed and breakfast. It was such a treat to feel so completely at home and comfortable. The room was spotlessly clean (and I am a bit of a clean freak), comfortable and really tastefully decorated. Our hosts were welcoming, interesting, and a lot of fun. They did go 'above and beyond' and we will definitely return if we are ever back in the area.

Shaina, Michael & Scotia were with us for two nights. These are folks that own a business similar to our B&B in NSW, Australia so their comments come as high praise to Dee & I and we thank them for their review. Shaina & Michael have demonstrated to us what truly loving parents they are and our doors are open to their return visit...wishing you much success Scotia!

During our trip on Vancouver Island we stayed two nights in this excellent BB.
Both Dee and Warren were perfect in advising us to see the most impressive sites of this part of the island (surroundings of Couternay), we received a warm welcome at the arrival in their very tasteful furnitured home.
A special item was the surprise at the morning meals, a unique breakfast served at a table with special care made by Warren. The breakfast was every morning of a different composition and excellent taste of local products. Facilities to rest and sleep were excellent.
They worked as a solid and guest-friendly team giving us the feeling being at home.

First, I would like to thank Warren & Dee (owners) again for providing us with warm accommodation on last Friday night.

The room was neat, equipped and with home feeling. Not to mention the homemade waffle breakfast, my friends who saw my photos appreciate that. The fruit was fresh and local.

Unlike most other B&Bs, Willow Guest House provided us with exceptional customer service and care with heart. My friend and I enjoyed very much staying there over the weekend. Somehow I think it worths more to stay there instead of big hotels with similar rates (as breakfast for both are included which could save us 20-30 bucks)
