I have stayed at Painters a few times now and have never been disappointed , we went last year to celebrate fathers day and we spent the night and have decided to make this a fathers day tradition and I took my Mom here for this Mothers day 2014 and did the $149 special and we upgraded to a water view room with a nice large deck with we had out lunch on and then in the evening went for our 3 course meal ( which was part of the deal ) I was thinking they would have a special menu for this but no to our very pleasant surprise it was your choice off the regular menu and what a feast it was yummo .
Leo and I can't wait for this fathers day :)
We also took our friend Eileen out there for a early dinner while there was Painters and Painters going on and we did have a few mix up happen to us , but the staff where so fantastic at apologizing to us and making it up to us in others ways , we could not ask for better service .
Great place with great service .

Room Tip: There all pretty good room's just depends if you want a full on sea view with a large deck or a 1/2 sea view with a small deck .

Beautiful hotel , the view is outstanding , nice lounge , dining room and pub. take the free boat from the dock over to April point on Quadra Island and go for lunch or dinner or enjoy the spa . Service is great and the brunches are delicious with a large selection . Hotel is located out of town somewhat but the nicest place to stay in Campbell River

We stayed at Painter's Lodge for 2 nights on our honeymoon at the end of May. It's in a great location right on the river, a free shuttle boat is available to take you over to their sister resort April Point which is definitely worth a visit, great scenery! We thought the food was excellent esp the breakfast which is good value. It's great to sit my the river and watch all of the wildlife, there is a lot to see including the resident seals waiting for the fishing boats to come in. Our room was really spacious and clean, is great to have the living area with sofas to chill at the end of the day. The guest services gave us some great advise on where to go on our short visit, definitely check out Elk Falls which is a great walk. Would recommend staying here.

Congratulations to the two of you! We’re so happy we could host you on your honeymoon, and it’s great to hear that the service, food, and accommodation were to your liking. It’s always nice when our guests have the opportunity to see some wildlife and take in some of the local sights like Elk Falls as well. We hope you will come back next year to relive your experience with us!

We went for my BD, and did the 145 dollar special. It included your one night stay and a 3 course dinner. Wow!! It was awesome, our room was huge and the view lovely. The dinner was fantastic and so good. We took the boat over to April point did a hike and popped in for a drink on the patio deck. While we were enjoying the view whales came by so cool! It was a great get away and I recommend it to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

It sounds like you really got the most out of your visit! I’m thrilled you enjoyed your room, dinner and drinks, and the views at both resorts. Of course it doesn’t hurt that the whales decided to put a little show on for you as well. Thank you for celebrating your Birthday with us! We hope to have you again soon.

I've just returned from a weekend called "Painters at Painters" that is a gathering of West Coast artists and art enthusiasts in the gardens and conference rooms of Painter's Lodge. The setting couldn't be more perfect. Everywhere you look there was a painting - misty islands at dawn, sun drenched gardens, romantic sunsets over the water, close up views of Eagles, harbour porpoises, and lush vegetation. My husband and I stayed two nights and had a large double room at the main lodge on the island April Point. A 5 minute ferry carried us to the dock at Painters where we had enormous buffet style breakfasts with everything from Oysters Casino, Eggs Benny, omelettes made or order, cascades of fruit, roast beef if that is your fancy at breakfast and hot and cold seafood dishes, salmon, halibut, crab and a table laden with every kind of sweet treat imaginable. The staff were caring and friendly, the rooms clean and decorated with a rainforest theme with fine quality duvets, curtains etc. no detail was spared. We hope to go back next year - a memorable experience.

Wow—thank you for your amazing review. We too find our property rather beautiful and inspiring, like a Toni Onley piece. It sounds like you had lovely stay at April Point, and enjoyed the event. We hope to see you at Painter’s at Painters again next year, if not sooner!
