Having visited Parksville many times over the years I'd not previously discovered this lovely little motel. Located at the south end of Parksville it's just a matter of minutes to the shops and the beach. Upon arriving for a two-night stay we were greeted by the innkeeper Wayne, who was completely charming and engaging. Having explained the "No Smoking" in the rooms policy he did graciously laugh when I asked if I could still use my indoor fireworks. The room was cleaner and far more pleasant than some of the premium accommodation we've experienced along Resort Row. There is little traffic in the evening, and as a result all is calm, all is quiet (I may have borrowed the last bit from somewhere...) The room had all we required with the exception of a kettle- which was easily solved as a result of asking Wayne if one might be borrowed. Those who anticipate being out and about during the day will do well to give up the cost of a room with a view, and stay at the Arbutus Grove Motel. There is another motel in Parksville which offers comparable rates to the Arbutus Grove, but sadly, despite the optimistic name it is more a tribute to John Milton's Paradise Lost. The Arbutus Grove Motel proves it is still possible to enjoy a nice holiday in pleasant surroundings at entirely reasonable rates. Well done and thank-you.
