This is a newly opened, total makeover of an old motel operation. It has now become a stylish boutique hotel with a beautiful setting and a first class, chic restaurant. It is a wonderful addition to the Vancouver Island hospitality and culinary scene.

We visited the restaurant for lunch recently after it was recommended to by two different friends.
The recommendations were well deserved.

Upon entering the restaurant we were pleasantly greeted by the host and seated at a table with an excellent view of the ocean. I noted that upon entrance, I could see into a spotless kitchen area. The decor is very contemporary, with an abundance of glass and wood in a round and very modern setting. The wait staff is attentive and friendly without being overbearing.

The food is fresh and beautifully presented with flair and taste. It is very reasonably priced considering the type of establishment. It was very busy, reflective of its overall quality and popularity. We highly recommend it and will most definite return .... often...

Room Tip: You must experience this fine establishment. They are doing it right.

We're from the mainland and we took our family to the Qualicum Beach Inn and were extremely pleased. Very nice atmosphere, beautiful patio - good service and good food! We've heard that they had some growing pains at the beginning but they seem to be sorted out. We had a large party of 8.

No expense was spared in refurbishing this hotel and dining area, complete with Ted Jolda glass wall art, modern outdoor patio and ocean views. A great, happening menu rivals the best and classiest restaurants in the big cities. Just amazing!

The staff, the food, the management, the ocean view, the pool, the restaurant, the environment were excellent!
Stayed for one night with a group of nine. The staff was able to accommodate with suite and joining rooms. Qualicum Beach Inn has become my New Home-away-from-home when I am in town. It's sleek and modern. My kids love the pool. I would highly recommend staying here and the restaurant was lovely and great prices too. I look forward to coming back to celebrate my 10th Wedding Anniversary with out the kids so we can enjoy drink at the bar or two ! From Langley. B.C

Room Tip: Ask for Ocean View room!!!

Had a nice experience at the new restaurant. Prices are reasonable and the service was excellent. We shared from the Tapas and Appetizer menu. Only downside was the scant portion of the zucchini plate and no Basil on our Marguerita pizza. Other than that, a first class establishment!

WOW! what a great upgrade to a tired old facility. This hotel recebtly under went a top to bottom complete upgrading and overhaul.
The new restaurant has outstanding views from the inside dining room or the expansive outdoor covered and uncovered patio space...all with expansive views of the ocean and coastal mountains.
The menu has good selection to satisfy every tastes, and there are a wide selection of Gluten free choices clearly labelled.
Servers were very attentive and polite.
Highly recommend this restaurant. ..welcome to the 21st century Qualicum Beach.

We came upon this property almost by accident, just looking for a nice place to stay in the Qualicum Beach--Parksville area on our way over to Tofino. It looked new and modern---and even though it was pricier than the other hotels we were looking at, we thought we would give it a try. Boy, were we pleasantly surprised at the quality of the property. Little did we know that the property had been an old, well known hotel that had been purchased by the local owners of the mid-Vancouver Island, Quality Foods supermarket group and had been turned into a first class small boutique resort---and had only been open a few weeks. The rooms were meticulously designed with high quality fixtures and amenities---down duvets on the beds, large flat screen TV's, high quality and modern bathroom fixtures, etc. The view from the beach-facing rooms was well worth the small upcharge. The restaurant and patio at the front of the hotel were extremely comfortable--the food was excellent. We consider ourselves fortunate that we stumbled on this wonderful property and had a lovely day there.

Room Tip: choose a room facing the beach---and get up early to see the sun come up over the water--breathtakin...
