Bayview Boasts New Name and Amenities, Maintains Same Owners and Quality of Service

COURTENAY – The Comox Valley Bayview Hotel has a new name and new amenities.

After 10 years operating under the Holiday Inn brand, the hotel has rebranded, expanding their services and amenities to better serve their guests.

“We have the same owners, the same great hotel, and the same great service,” says Alice Pifer, Director of Sales, Groups & Meetings.”


“We became independent so we could have the freedom to offer even better services to our guests. Since September 1, we’ve added premium movie channels to our rooms (including HBO and Crave), added extra options, like bacon and hash browns to our hot buffet breakfast, added a higher-end body works line for our bath products, and more.”

“We’re classing it up! There’s more opportunity for us. We worked with the franchise for 10 years, but we choose to move in a different direction, creating a better experience for our guests.”

Located right on the bay, the hotel is owned by local businessman Grant Smith, who has been in the hospitality business for 30 years. The Hotel features a pool, hot tub and waterslide, 24-hour fitness room, 24-hour business centre, an onsite 24-hour laundry facility, and two event spaces.

“We have a board room that seats 12-15 people and a breakfast room that can accommodate up to 55 people, which we rent out in the evenings,” says Pifer.

Both spaces feature display boards, projectors, and DVD players to accommodate the various needs of businesses and community groups.

“In the coming months, we will be offering a ski package with Mount Washington,” comments Pifer. “The package will include one night in the hotel and two ski passes, starting at $139.99, based on double occupancy.”

Following the rebrand, Bayview will continue to support community groups, such as the Tour-de-Rock, V.I. Music Fest, V.I. Junior Hockey, Boys and Girls Club and many others through sponsorships and donations.
