Stayed her last week of Sept. first week Oct. 2012 as a base for fishing on the Island. There were four fishermen and one better half (wife). The couple stayed in a double room with seperate bathroom and a kitchen area with table and chairs. Three, including myself, stayed in "The Cabin" which has three bedrooms with bouble beds, a seperate bathroom and toilet and a lounge and kitchen area with a large table and four chairs. The kitchen areas in both units had a cooker with oven, a microwave, large fridge/freezer and a fresh filter coffee maker. Crockery and cooking pots were provided. There was a large TV in the lounge area and smarler tv's in each of the bedrooms. Outside there was a verander with a bench seat and in the garden area next to the cabin there was a covered seated area with a large gas bar-b-que.There are a number of these around the garden area along with a fish cleaning area with sink. There is a breakfast room that has cereals, bread and a toaster with butter and preserves, a filter coffee machine and a large fridge/freezer with three different milks and a selection of yoghurts and a bowl of fresh fruit. Next to this is a laundry room and a seperate wet weather drying room ideal for drying waders and wading boots. All in all a really good place to stay as a base to visit the islands attractions or salmon rivers.

Room Tip: The three bed cabin with sleep four as one room has a single and a double bed

We've stayed here the past two years on a buddy and son fishing trip to Campbell River. Heritage works for us, we stay in the three bedroom suite, cook our own meals (fresh caught salmon and steaks), drink a few beers and get ready to go fishing. The rooms are generally clean, well equipped and the morning breakfast is ready early to accommodate fishermen, travellers and trades guests. Don't expect too much and you won't be dissapointed.

How this place gets to be rated #1 in Trip Advisor boggles my mind. I am learning the hard way about using Trip Advisor, take everything with a grain of salt. Whoever rate this place as good or excellent ought to have their heads checked. The place is a low rate Motel, away from the city outside of walking distance to any place useful and far from the beach. It is located in a commercial area behind the Box store called the Brick. It is old and i won't walk walk on the floor without my shoes. The fridge is extremely noisy and the room does not smell fresh.All in.all one of the worst if not the worst place i have stayed in. Not impressed. This is my first use of the Trip Advisor and i can say that i am not impress either.

I always stay at the Heritage River Inn when in Campbell River, which is ten or twelve times a year. I travel to CR for business on a regular basis and sometimes take my dog along. The HRI takes pets and the set up is safe and convenient. The place is a regular way point for residents of northern Vancouver Island as they travel south with their families. It's also a regular stopping point for contractors, the early to bed, early to rise crowd. It's simple, quiet and clean and the newer rooms are very spacious, the best choice for people like me who want a safe place with parking that allows me to haul lots of gear into the room. The staff and management are always friendly, which is important when you pull in after a long day on the road, and the WiFi is free and depenpendable. And on top of all that, the staff found my gold earrings and made sure that I got them back - much appreciated. They would have been hard to replace at today's gold prices!

Room Tip: I like the rooms which face the parking courtyard, they're very spacious.

I stayed at the Heritage River Inn, Campbell River while vacationing with my ex boyfriend several years ago. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous! The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The barbecue was so delicious that I was sure it must have been prepared by Iron Chef Bobby Flay himself.

The staff was incredible, particularly Rebekah the manager. She was very caring and attentive, and made us feel so welcome and at home. At one point, my ex boyfriend and I were without a vehicle (long story) and Rebekah drove us around town on her day off!!

My ex and I caught several wild Salmon, which would have cost well over $100 at the market. Not bad for recreational catch! It really was a trip that paid for itself.

Before my ex boyfriend passed away, he said that he had only two regrets in life: letting go of me, and never returning to the Heritage River Inn, Campbell River. He said it was the most enjoyable weekend he'd ever had in his life.

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend. Beautiful location by the river. The grounds are well maintained with gorgeous flowers. The air conditioning works well. We thought the breakfast was amazing. Comfortable beds. Friendly staff. We would stay here again.

I stayed here for 5 nights while taking a course. I appreciated the kitchenette and nice large room. We used the breakfast room as a meeting room and also the ourdoor gazebo and gas barbeque. The grounds were well kept, with beautiful flowers and a large lawn area. The location was beside the river and a short drive to downtown and shopping.
