“Back, Better Than Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We had lunch at the Water Resort last Sunday and were delighted with all of the updates, improved menu and cheerfulness of our server. The Inn has had many updates since I was there last and has been well decorated, is immaculate and the view is always most welcome. I was delighted to see this hotel make it's reappearance in better form. The food was outstanding, the Chef certainly is to be commended. Well Done!

“Extra service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Great views of Cowichan Bay from every room and the pool and the exercise room. Marina at the door. Right at Cowichan bay with all its delightful stores. A bus stop at the door for those who do not want the hassle of driving and parking Great staff. A pleasure to be there

“Buffet...NOT!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013

Not too sure where some people get there daily food to call this place edible. Has to rank up to one of the worst buffets of all time. Either cold, dry, soggy, barely cook sausage, wilted bacon (yes wilted), and a crap load of used seafood on display. Unless your standing in line for chef prepared eggs and waffles topped with fruit and cream, theres no way this buffet should even be offered. Some places can do buffets right and others call a weeks worth of restaurant leftovers a buffet. Not for the money either! Leave this one alone. See my other place for great buffet just a few km's down the road.

“Inn at Cowichan Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2012

For me, the best parts about Inn at the Water are the friendly and helpful staff at the front counter, and the great little exercise room and pool which face the ocean on the ground level. It is a great addition to the Cowichan Bay scene.
