Our Story

The Historic Riverside

The Riverside Inn is a hotel, restaurant, and cold beer and wine store located along the Cowichan River.  It has just gone under new ownership and extensive renovations. 

The boutique hotel rooms include options with single queen beds, king beds, rooms with 2 beds, a suite with full kitchen and rooms with balconies overlooking the river. 

The restaurant features a bar space with keno, pull tabs, and two pool tables, a lower restaurant space where kids are welcome until 9pm, and two patios overlooking the river.  The Best Buy Liquor Store features the largest selection of beer, wine, ciders, coolers, and spirits in town, as well as a full wall of grab and go chilled product.  Tobacco products, mix drinks, snacks, and bagged ice available.
