“Full of history and pleasant surprises!”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

I visited the Rodmay over the Easter weekend 2012. I hadn't been in Powell River for many years. I am so glad I stayed here. What a treat! It's part of BC and Powell River's history. Expansive foyer, winding staircase, very large rooms (at least the one I was in), and quiet. Some of the amenities of new hotels not there, but then, the price was right and I'd rather have character than sameness. The Rodmay is going through major changes, thanks to the hardwork of its owners and board members (it's a society too!), and all of them good changes: Rainbow Room being updated ground space being developed for art studios, a very cool 50's feel restaurant on the premises. It's near to the waterfront and the historical Powell River mill (no longer pulp, no smell). The charming nPatricia Theatre is just up the hill and the at the end of the road is Lund, also an historical gem.
Rodmay is a great getaway, wonderful place to hold a retreat, weekend workshops, dance. Check it out!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the unique Rodmay Heritage Hotel in December, 2011. It is being lovingly restored and expanded to include small businesses and local arts endeavors. Our room was super clean, cozy, with an excellent bed, and friendly service. We ate incredibly well in the Magpie Diner, the food was fresh and home-cooked and delicious at every meal - lasagna, great breakfasts and crab cakes were favourites. The hotel also includes a beautiful large banquet room, the Rainbow Room, a renovated heritage barber shop – The Madcap Beauty Spot, and a Liquor Store. Local art exhibitions in the beautiful lobby! And a great dance band at Mckinney's Pub on Friday night – the pub also has an interesting library available for a daytime visit! Our stay was memorable and we will definitely be back.

Three of us visited for a weekend and loved the atmosphere. It is being lovingly restored. The food is great at Magpie's. It is very clean and comfortable, and the staff very friendly and accommodating. On the downside, the tv wasn't working and despite several requests, was never attended to. Hot water was slow, but to be expected in a building that old. I happen to love the old fir floors wood woodwork and original windows. If you want modern, forget it. It is a period building with all the quirks that go with it. As an owner of a similar business I can appreciate the hard work required to restore this lovely building. I would stay there again

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the pub to avoid the noise

We only stayed here one night, it is a 101 year old hotel. It is old but the room we stayed in was very clean. The factory across the street is very noisy if you need quiet to sleep. We had no screens in our windows. The hotel needs some extra TLC but it depends what you are looking for. The beds were very comfortable & clean. Also, call if you need information, they are not very good at responding to emails. The hotel is ALL NON - SMOKING.

Room Tip: If you don't like your room ask for another, they are very accomadating!

I stayed at the Rodmay for two nights in February and was pleasantly surprised with what they have done with the place. New hardwood floors in the rooms and pleasant staff. The room i stayed in was basic, but quite comfortable and the price was great.

It's been a few months since our 2nd stay, but I just felt I had to write a review to counter the negative stuff on here about the Rodmay. Yes it is old and could use a little more work, but I found nothing wrong with the hotel-it was clean and everything worked great for us. The staff were really friendly, the cats were great and the hotel is just a really nice place to stay. It isn't a 5 star resort or something like that, but for the price you pay it is great.. And you can't really do anything abuot the mill next door, any hotel in the city is going to be next to the mill so unless so to judge the hotel on something it has no control over is kinda silly. If we go to Powell River again, which we probably will, we will be staying there again for sure!

We found the hotel to be very interesting. The lobby was quite lovely, and the art on display was exceptional. Though there was not a seperate check-in desk, the staff in the beer and wine store were friendly and more than happy to give us a little history of the hotel and surrounding areas when they checked us in. We were a short walk from a simply beautiful beach with a lovely view and some vocal sea lions. There was a fantastic beach-walk trail from there leading right into town that made for an invigorating walk. All in all, I would stay here again next time we are in town.
