Those visiting our town north of Victoria, BC find much to love about our establishment, enough so that many come back and visit us again. Our on-site dining spot, and CVI Restaurant and Lounge offers some of the finest eating experiences in the Cowichan Valley. And after a long day of travel, work, or recreation, you'll appreciate being able to enjoy one of our cold draft beers without having to leave our Duncan hotel.

You'll be just as pleased with your room as you are with the food. High definition TV's allow you to enjoy sports, news, and movies while you relax, and our free and fast Wi-Fi Internet service lets you browse the web if needed. We take pride as well in offering the most comfortable beds of any hotel in Duncan.

Once off our grounds you can enjoy a variety of great local attractions, many of them influenced by the strong local Native American presence. Duncan is known as the "City of Totems," boasting 80 of these impressive and unique artifacts around town. Throughout the Cowichan Valley you can sample the wares at any of our 15 local wineries. And, being on the largest island in British Columbia, our Vancouver Island hotel gives you easy access to all the hiking, fishing, and wildlife viewing you could ask for.

Business travelers enjoy our hotel especially, thanks to our business center with full copy and fax services and the ample desks in each room. We're also a great spot for meetings and other events. Just ask our staff how we can help.
