We spent two nights here on a recent week long trip around Vancouver Island. First of all it has a great location in the tranquil and beautiful James Bay area which is very convenient for most of the downtown attractions. However to reach check in you have to climb a 19 step staircase with your luggage and then once you are allocated a room, heaven help you if you are on the upper floors as there is no elevator (and we had some heavy suitcases). The room itself was very traditional and clean although the toilet was right next to the door which made it difficult to use. Breakfast in the restaurant downstairs was EXCELLENT – good value and friendly staff. The attached pub though was disappointing as the beer choice was very limited (and served too cold).
