“A beautiful setting, but an upgrading is needed.”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

This is a good hotel in a fabulous location. It seemed a bit dated and could use some reno's to upgrade the rooms a bit.

Having the free shuttle over to Painter's Lodge is a great bonus. We managed to have a great visit to their facilities which seem to be in better shape than April Points.

We had a good dinner with very tasty menu as the restaurant was very good with a fantastic view.

Whether you know BC or not this really is a wonderful setting. Rooms, suites, cabins by the Inland Passage (views over to Campbell River). We had 2 cabins (Nos 21 and 22) with clear, near views of the sea. Lovely 'duplex' rooms (a queen room and en suite at the back of the duplex and a good sized lounge and large TV at the front, overlooking the sea. This place is a must. We found the food a) pricey and b) the service was a little haphazard - but then we were days from the close of the season. Very regular water taxis link April Point with their sister hotel (Painter's Lodge) on the mainland and all facilities are shared (pools, spas etc). Yes, we've all agreed - this is a place to come back to. Finally, a day trip by Aboriginal Journey Tours is a complete must!!! A full day out, fantastic guides, and bears, orca whales, shoals of porpoises and dolphins...plus a number of Bald headed eagles. Sublime and a complete BC experience.

Room Tip: Cabins 21 and 22 (DUPLEXES)facing the sea

Recently stayed for four nights and enjoyed it all. Room was comfortable with separate bedroom and living area and partial sea view. Staff were all very helpful and food was delicious. Quadra Island is a lovely place to explore, even in the rain!

The pod of 50 dolphins did it for me. We were eating dinner and looked out to see many, maybe 50, bobbing fins out in the strait. The next night on a boat shuttle to Painters Point across the strait in Campbell River we go some shots of three Orcas. We got lucky on both occasions, as these sightings happen only once a week or every other week. The Quadra Island Fair happened to be on the weekend we stayed, with a world class Doggie Dash, and the Campbell River museum had some nice First People artifacts. Great to watch the nearly constant activity at the dock as the fishermen and whale watchers came and went. A peaceful place where you can choose an activity level that suits. Some said their beds were a bit hard, but ours was great.

Room Tip: I liked the rooms on the dock side of the complex for quiet and a view of the other islands.

What a wonderful place! Stayed for 4 nights, end of August. Could not fault it. Fantastic location, great room 201 just sitting on the deck outside our room, watching the boats come & go, fishermen bringing home their catch. It was a great relaxing holiday, just sorry it was not longer!
Staff were great, nothing was too much trouble, quick to respond to our requests.
Food in the resturant was excellent
A special thanks to Laura our server in the resturant and Juanita the housemaid. Both always smiling and eager to please.
Would strongly recommend April Point to all who want a 'get away from it all' holiday.

Our room was perfect for our needs except it did not have the promised ocean view and was VERY noisy with people walking by from every direction
The room was clean, comfortable and spacious.
The staff were great,Maggie in the dining room looked after us SO well.The property has a super location but it is evident that it is living in it's past glories.
We would go back as long as the rates were not higher

Room Tip: Request QUIET and full water view

Recently completed a 3day, 2 night stay at April Point Lodge and had a lovely experience. We were two couples and brought our own kayaks. The staff were very friendly and accommodating allowing us to launch our boats from their dock and store them on their deck. Kayaking in Gowlland Harbor and around Steep Island was good although some of our group found the tidal rip a bit difficult. Lots of sea life and birds and a number of things to do right at the Lodge including fishing, killer whale watching, biking and scooters rental. We also explored Quadra on the Rebecca Spit and Harriot Bay side. Lots of great hikes including China Mountain and Main Lake Provincial Park as highlights.

The rooms at the Lodge range from the upscale bridal cabin with beautiful view and hot tub to the "basic" rooms on the North side which are cheaper by $100 a night but are a basic motel room. We recommend rooms on the South side with views of Campbell River and April Point Lodge, we had Rooms 24, 25 and 26 all adjoining and up on a hill. Large staircase to get up there but lovely views and nicely private. The Lodge restaurant and pub has a decent menu and you can take a boat shuttle to Painters to enjoy their food and hot tub and pool. All in all a lovely long weekend get away to be recommended.

Room Tip: Pick any on the North side facing Campbell River preferably cabins and pick a shoulder time for bett...
