“Friendly and Clean Accomodation”

Great Breakfast....I loved making my own waffles at the hotel in the morning. The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. The bears eating along side the road on the drive up from Port Hardy were great!

We stayed here on Nov 8/08. After we had checked in and prepaid our rooms in full I was asked to sign a blank Visa imprint as a security deposit. When I refused to do this I was forced to sign a Visa slip for $500.00 or give up our rooms. I was told point blank that we could go elsewhere if we didn't like their policy. We have traveled the world and have never run into this. When we checked out they actually came and inspected our rooms before they credited our visa. All in all it was unpleasant and confrontational and deceptively done.

The hotel itself is adequate but overpriced given the remote location.

There are other small nice hotels in Port McNeill that actually appear to appreciate their customers.

  • Liked — location and view
  • Disliked — staff and very spartan rooms

Very tidy accommodation.

The resort was a good location as a stopover for the Port Hardy ferry. Nearby on the road to Port Hardy we found Black Bears on the roadside and the area had many Bald eagles flying around.
The nearby sportsman restaurant was a friendly place over looking the harbour that provided good food.
