Great Escape
Great views over the bay. This is a very good 4 star property. Rooms clean and functional. Excellent food and friendly service. Wine list could be more extensive with some quality wines. Some great artistic walks around the property. This is my second time this year, so definitely recommend as a stop along the way.

Grwat Escape
We escaped to the Queen Charlotte Sounds for some R&R and thats what we got. An eclectic art trail around the site and amazing views made for some picturesque hang out spots. Friendly staff and excellent food made our break for our 2 day escape on the sounds. Keen to return one day.
