The hotel is beautiful. Breathtaking views (from every room, I think).
For families, especially extended family, I would easily rate this a 5/5. We saw many families there and would love to share it with ours. It's also a great place for anyone looking to do some fishing, kayaking or nature exploration.
For a quiet couples vacation it maybe isn't quite as good. We were getting away, just the two of us, and participated in their Romance Package and it wasn't quite as romantic as we'd hoped. For example, on the romance cruise we weren't able to sit close enough to each other to hold hands. There isn't room service (so no cuddly breakfast in bed).
Don't get me wrong though, it was still an amazing experience -- nature, adventure, great food and good service... just not necessarily "romantic" -- if you're looking for a chance to explore BC's pristine, beautiful nature I definitely recommend. If you're looking for a quiet chance to "reconnect" it might not be the right choice for you.
Oh! And the grounds are pristine!! The gardener(s) on staff should be very proud of everything they've accomplished.
