Reviewed 29 November 2013

I stayed here Nov 2013. The place is a gem...full of old antiques & character. And the owner JP has paid a great tribute to his mother by naming the restaurant after her & has great pictures of her throughout. The hotel is small but full of atmosphere. Would I stay here again??? In a heartbeat.

This beautifully appointed hotel is a comfortable oasis in a historic community. Restored with taste and whimsy, the place was sparkling clean and felt cosy. Lots of cool, eclectic memorabilia make this destination unique. We had a wonderful time and the owners took great care of us. The restaurant below serves breakfast to a lively local crowd.

In my profession I travel a fair amount and stay in many hotels. After a few unpleasant stays at other hotels in Powel River, I thought I would try something a little different. After just a couple of stays at The Old Courthouse Inn, I look forward to going back each time I leave.
I find that the little thing are what count the most, for example...the sheets are changed to flannel in the winter, they have very good water pressure, comfortable beds, and very friendly staff that make you feel like you are at home.
Like I said, I have stayed in many hotels....and this is the first time I wanted to give a review:)
Thanks JP! See you in 3 months!

For our first ever bed & breakfast experience, we chose The Old Courthouse Inn in Powell River where we spend a long weekend visiting family. I knew we were in for something different when I made the reservation and JP asked for our names, including our 3 1/2 year old daughter's. We were warmly welcomed on our check in process. When we couldn't figure out how our door lock worked, JP took the time to immediately show us the trick to getting it working properly, and we even enjoyed some "family style" joking around it. Every time we saw any staff member, we were greeted with warm smiles and a sincere interest in our days events and experience at the b&b. They staff was also very knowledgeable about the area and pointed us in the right direction when we asked about beaches to check out. We left on a holiday Monday and although Edie Rae's cafe was closing at 9:00 am so their staff could enjoy time with their family, we were offered breakfast. I have already recommended the OCI to anyone who will listen and we will definitely make a reservation the next time that we head up to visit family.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sheriff's Office and although our window was at the very end of the outdoor pat...

What a wonderful warm experience we had at the OCI in Powell River. From the genuinely friendly greeting of JP to the careful attention at dinner and breakfast, we were treated like stars! Our room was very comfortable and quaint. The Tapas menu for dinner was just right and the food beautifully presented and so delicious. Try the dates stuffed with goat cheese, wrapped in bacon! Breakfast was another delicious treat with many tasty offerings. It was difficult to choose. Large portions well prepared and the pint of orange juice - amazing! We will definitely be back for another taste of this beautiful inn with more time to explore Powell River.

My husband and I have stayed at a few places in Powell River and this was by far the BEST. We really enjoyed the old world charm mix with new world amenities in our room. JP and Kelly have done a great job with this old place. From the choice of carpeting to the fabulous bed linens, they have really hit it on the mark for us. We enjoyed the breakfast we had in Edie Rae's. Good home style food. We'll be back.
