“Wonderful”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We recently stayed here for 2 nights, and we were delighted. Dan is a wonderful host, very accommodating, and an exquisite cook (his gourmet breakfasts were delicious). We stayed in the Lady Cecilia, with a view of the mountains and a bit of the water. There is a lovely garden in the back. We felt as if we were leaving a home a away from home on our last day. Warmly recommend.

We recently stayed at this B&B for 10 nights. The rooms are clean, comfortable, nicely decorated either with shared or private bathrooms. The owner Dan is an amazing host and welcomes you to his charming property. Every morning Dan surprises you with a delicious breakfast beautifully presented. You are always made to feel right at home. We would recommend this property and we will definitely return on our next visit to Bowen.

My husband and I just got back from a weekend at the Lodge and had the most fabulous time! The owner Dan is very professional and makes the most delicious breakfast! We felt right at home the moment we stepped inside.

The property is very charming. We stayed in the Lady Alexandria suite on the ground floor and just loved it! Very clean, beautifully decorated, and cozy. We especially loved the soaking tub and the ultra comfortable bed...amazing! The garden in the back is also lovely. While it was too cold for us to sit outside during our visit, in the summertime it would be superb. The B&B also has a large living room with a wood-burning fireplace. We spent a lot of time relaxing and reading in the common areas (there's another one upstairs too). It's a 5 minute walk to town, which is also grea (for anyone looking for restaurant recommendations, we ate at Tuscany one night, and Rustique the other night, and both were delicious).

We'd recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place to stay on Bowen Island and we will definitely be back!

We came over to Bowen Island for business and were fortunate to get accommodation at The Lodge at the Old Dorm. Dan was very informative and extremely accommodating. We were caught up and did not start looking for dinner until 9:10pm. In the beginning of April, on a Tuesday evening, every restaurant and kitchen closes between 8 - 9 (pub was open but the kitchen was closed). Dan very graciously put together a plate of cheese, fruit and crackers and made sure we had something to eat. It was very much appreciated and I would definitely recommend this B&B .

We stayed at the Lodge at the Old Dorm for two nights and were very impressed with everything. The Lodge is walking distance to the ferry, the house has been restored beautifully, and we had everything that we needed. Our room was perfect with a beautiful ensuite bath and allowed us to enjoy time alone or mingle with the other guess in the common area if we desired. Dan took very good care of us and was the perfect mix of helpful with recommendations, while allowing us to have our own time to relax and enjoy the island. We had a fantastic breakfast on Sunday and were very relaxed and rested as we headed back to the city. The Lodge really is a gem on Bowen island and we will stay there any time we go back!

We only stayed for one night at the Lodge but it was wonderful. Don took such care of us making us feel very special.

We stayed in the Lady Alexandra room which was gorgeous. It has a very large soaker tub which is a definite plus after hiking the Killarney Lake earlier that day.

The B&B includes free wifi, they have a wonderful open living room and even happy Apple TV which gave us access to Netflix :)

The breakfast that Don made us the next morning was fantastic. Very filling but not heavy. Along with coffee, tea, juice, fresh fruit. We were quite satisfied after that wonderful feast.

I was sad that we only stayed one night. But I know that we will definitely be back soon.

Room Tip: I recommend the Lady Alexandra room as it is quite lovely.

I was fortunate enough to get a reservation over the Christmas Holiday at The Old Dorm Bed and Breakfast. The location is perfect:10 minutes walk from the Ferry. The owner was very accommodating and went out of his way to make sure I had the privacy I had requested for my 2 night stay. I stayed in the Lady Cynthia room. The bed was perfect, temperature controlled room, with easy access to a most beautiful washroom and tub. The evenings were so quiet and peaceful sitting next to the fireplace. Dinner recommendations were spot on, and breakfasts were beautifully prepared. I highly recommend this special spot for time on your own or with friends. Sincerely, Layla

Room Tip: There are rooms available with ensuite washrooms for greater privacy.
