At the charming Old House Hotel, families can stay in suites sized from studio to two-bedroom. All rooms feature kitchenettes, fireplaces, complimentary Wi-Fi, DVD players, and plush robes. The one- and two-bedroom suites upgrade you to a full gourmet kitchen, dining area, and separate living room with sleeper sofa, and certain suites even include an in-room soaker tub. If yours doesn’t, you can enjoy water time in the outdoor pool or the indoor and outdoor hot tubs. Don’t miss the infrared sauna either — and if you can steal some time away from the kids, indulge in a massage or facial at the spa. There is no restaurant onsite, so plan to eat in local restaurants or cook for yourselves.

My wife and I stayed here for a few days in Sep whilst travelling round Vancouver Island. It is well positioned for places to eat and there are enough parking spaces plus underground parking.
The rooms are clean and spacious with all you need in the kitchen area plus a sofa to chill out on. The coffee and cookies near reception are a nice touch. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The only downside for us was that we were in room 2103 which seemed to be next to the fire exit/exit to the underground parking area, which it seemed staff/other guests were using quite regularly so it was a bit noisy having the door bag repeatedly.
Overall a good stay, helpful staff and a good location.
A very well located and comfortable resort. Very responsive staff to any request or query. Unit well equipt and comfortable. Excellent restaurants and grocery shopping near by. Easy access to other interesting communities near by. A great getaway even if the weather is inclement.
