Introducing Our New Parksville Hotel – the Perfect Family Getaway

On Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, you’ll find a unique and very special kind of island life. You might expect the broad sandy beaches and Pacific Ocean saltwater, but there are also expansive mountain vistas, lush forests, and much more. In Parksville, located on the Vancouver Island’s eastern side, you’ll find all these quintessential island enchantments, plus world-renowned tidal sand flats and an irresistible small-town charm.
