We live in Campbell River and so know all about Painters. We wanted to get away for a special birthday and found that Painters was perfect. The room and food were perfect, then we took the boat over to have coffee and dessert at April Point.

We stayed there on night and were positively surprised as we were expecting the sort of « nothing-special » motel.

It offers a friendly and simple service that...

I am very saddened to read this negative review of the resort. It has been an extremely busy season and this has meant that pub has, on occasion, run out of items during very busy services. I am sorry that this was an inconvenience for you. Painter’s Lodge offers fishing charters, wildlife adventure tours, sunset tours on demand and reservations...
