My husband and I visited Gowlland Harbour Resort twice this summer as we loved staying there. We were in the main lodge - room #9. A simple but clean room, nice view, with private en suite bathroom. Frankly, you are never inside, so it is the excellent location and environment that makes this place most wonderful. The staff is lovely and helpful. Mariana, the general manager and professional Chef, is extraordinary. She is a great cook, very personable, and fun to talk with. She went out of her way to make us feel at home for six days and as a favour, she kindly cooked for us a salmon we caught. it was extra delicious. The Resort is perfect for those seeking peace and nature - a tranquil bay, with great views, lots of wildlife at the front door - eagles, otters, seals, deer - and even a humpback out front of the harbour entrance at Discovery Pass. We have a boat that we could moor at their private, safe dock and depart easily to an abundance of activities from there. It was a delightful experience all round. thank you!
