River Cowichan Hotel – Cathy Youlden — Daryl Youlden – CQ businesses Ltd

If you are considering remaining in beautiful Lake Cowichan in Uk Columbia avoid Accomodations on River Cowichan Riverfront. Myself and a travel companion just returned from the 3 day stay and had been basically mortified at our encounter. Firstly, let me explain that all of us chose Accomodations on Lake Cowichan Riverfront primarily since they’re pet friendly and we have one medium-sized dog we travel with. Although the pictures online look fantastic the accomodations are not.

At first blush our space was extremely tiny and awfully filthy. There was a large iron burn about the rug and sheetrock dust almost everywhere, and oh, did I point out the overbearing smell of clean latex paint! It was very apparent how the workers who had just renovated this unit were not qualified craftsmen.

Accomodations on Lake Cowichan Riverfront is situated right in the heart associated with downtown Lake Cowichan and run with a baby toting hippie woman and her creepy boyfriend that’s evidently stoned on something through the entire waking hours.

When we first arrived to check on in we were greeted with a poorly dressed hippy woman breasts feeding a 3 year old child in front desk, not that there is anything wrong having a woman breast feeding her child in public places. But have some class! The grounds are poorly held and there is no way you will relax on the ‘wharf’ because they call it. The river is extremely cold and the current is actually amazingly fast, swimming is definately an enormous risk. The caretaker and her boyfriend could be located amidst wofting marijuana smoke clouds inside a tent out back should you require any assistance, but watch out for their rotwiler / pitbull cross companion as he’s very mean and running freely about the property. In fact he attacked the dog and others on several ocassion.

We also had the displeasure of meeting ‘Cathy’ who owns the complex during our remain. All I can say is how the accomodations reflect her compulsive, very odd behavior. Avoid talking with her unless you need to spend an hour listening to someone let you know how great they are and that they know everything about anything.

I could just on but I am sure right now you get the point. There are lots of very nice bed and breakfasts within walking distance that people discovered through another family staying in the hotel that are dog friendly also. Accomodations on Lake Cowichan Riverfront does not even deserve a star score and certainly isn’t worth your time and effort or money. If you are intending a stay in Lake Cowichan prevent Accomodations on Lake Cowichan Riverfront such as the plauge.
