“Lovely and inspiring trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2013

The second time that our extended family stayed at this lovely B&B we got to appreciate and admire the cozy, tidy and charming style of our room and the overwhelming friendliness of our hosts.

We right away felt at home away from home. Especially as our hosts Siggy and Detlef were very attentive and full of interesting sparkling information. We would have loved to be able to stay longer, for our hosts were such an inspiring and helpful resource of tales and information.

The thoughtful decorated rooms, the sumptuous breakfast and our always friendly hosts let us look forward to coming back soon.

Charm certainly met all our needs. We were very pleased with our choice and would return again and hope to soon. A great place and base for our two week visit. Starting with a sumptuous breakfast certainly sustained an active day - breakfast as a King & Queen a definite truism. Food and company were exceptional -- our hosts went the distance to make the visit teriffic ! They were very open, sociable, provided information and assisted us in every way. The accommodations are as excellent as the food and the bedroom well supported by the lounge. Location is central and touring around greatly facilitated. Good people, good memories, great house - definitely a good choice. Charming !!!

Excellent. Much better experience than staying at a hotel. The hosts were extremely interesting with stories to tell. Thick duvet made it very cosy in bed. Better pillows + fitted sheets would have been nice though. Upstairs bathroom renovated nicely. Highlight is the b'fast. Was it it 4 courses or 5, I can't remember. Don't plan to dash in 10 min.

Room Tip: We were upstairs on the W side. It was fine. Minor road noise. TV kinda complicated.

Our recent 2-day stay at your charming Bed & Breakfast Inn was memorable. The accomodations are excellent. You met our every need with caring attention. Breakfast was delicious, and served in a beautiful setting. Qualicom Beach is a lovely town. A great place to spend some relaxing time.

We stayed here and it is effortlessly worthy of all of the reviews I have read (breakfast is excellent, the rooms are clean, the hosts are delightful - I could go on). The beds are particularly comfortable and hardly mentioned by others! Excellent value all round.

The term "B&B" has different meanings in North America, but most Europeans use it to describe a room in someone's home. That is what to expect in this B&B run by two Germans with many decades of experience in the hospitality industry.

Upstairs are 3 guest rooms, which share one large bathroom. In an alcove between two of the rooms is a drum set, and the rooms are filled with knickknacks from Asian travels -- which are exactly what you might expect in someone's home. It is an ideal spot for families like ours who break out into separate rooms, but do not mind sharing the bath, which has a large tub and a shower. The location is near the beach, and a short drive to Qualicum's center.

The owners prepared a lovely breakfast, which was so large that we had to skip lunch. They were helpful, delightful, and happy to have us visit their home.

Detlef and Sigrid are some of the most kind and caring people I have ever met. They treated me more like a son than a bed and breakfast customer! The breakfast's were so big and so delicious I had to search for a iPhone app to loose weight as Detlef said there's 'a app for that'! The homemade wine was delicious too! I also spent to much time in the sunshine on the beach and when I arrived at there place Sig scrambled all over the house to find me some cream to heal my sun burnt face! The service was simply unreal it was so great! The beds were clean and very comfy ! Slept enough in 2 nights for a weeks sleep! Thanks Detlef and Sigrid for the amazing B&B and hospitality!
Hope to see you again!!!
Sincerely, Amos Wiebe
