Verified Guest from Powell River, BC CA rated Best Western Cowichan Valley Inn 9 out of 10 on April 22, 2004 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"The hotel probably wasn't convenient if you wanted to walk downtown - but for me, it was excellent and close to where I was working. I travel to Duncan quite frequently and will stay there from now on."
