Quiet, Scenic, Okay Stay; Disappointing Dining
Posted Jul 26, 2016
We have always wanted to stay at the Harbour House & a milestone birthday seemed like the perfect time so my husband booked a reservation & we stayed for a few days last year. The Inn itself & room had nice ocean views, was comfortable, had lovely grounds with interesting artwork at every turn. Unfortunately our reserved dining experience was disappointing, especially for what was to be a special birthday dinner celebration. Service was inattentive, food was mediocre & overpriced. The staff got our order wrong (twice), then charged us for items we did not receive with barely an apology - felt terribly neglected. At that, we just wanted the experience to be over. Rarely anyone staffed at the front desk. Overall, it was anything but a special celebration & stay but we did enjoy the Whiffen Spit walks & Juan de Fuca trail & beaches. Yes, the fresh cookies were a treat! Didn't write a review until now - probably a good thing that time has passed as we have seen some good dining/experiences in reviews since so that's nice to know but we still aren't sure we would go back.
