The Wessex Inn is a 29 room motel located in beautiful Cowichan Bay, British Columbia. The building sits across the road from the bay, and Hecate Park at the north end of the village, providing spectacular views from many of our rooms and an incredibly walkable experience without being caught up in the hustle and bustle of the village center.
Our mission is to create a space of simple comfort and relaxation by the bay that will leave you wishing that you didn't have to. With a friendly atmosphere and staff who strive to accommodate through honesty, integrity, and sincerity, a sense of welcome and belonging prevails in the overall experience.
Here at the Wessex Inn, we have furnished rooms with or without Kitchenettes and each their own balcony, ample parking and daily housekeeping. There’s free WIFI and HDTV for those who like to stay in, and our Community page for all there is to see and do in the area, if you're a little more adventurous..
Whether you're thousands of miles from home, running the roads with your sweetheart, or working in the area and just need to recover after a hard days' work, The Wessex provides the escape you desire or require.
Groups are people too. Family reunion, wedding group, car club, business travel or work crew, The Wessex Inn will rise to the occasion. Just hop to our Contact page and give us a call, or send a quick note, and we'll always do our best to assist you in making it a memorable and comfortable experience for everyone on your list.
**Dog rooms have been discontinued** Please be advised that we can no longer accommodate dogs in the motel. Unfortunately we've had a number of guests leave their dog unattended in the room, resulting in a fit of barking due to separation anxiety in a strange environment. We love dogs, and we also understand that not all pet owners are created equal, however we cannot allow for the possibility of disturbance to the overall experience for our guests. For this reason, we also cannot allow them to be left in vehicles on the property. We apologize to our many loyal dog-loving guests, and thank you for your understanding.
- Smoking is not permitted anywhere in or around the building within 7 meters according to local Bylaw. However we do have a designated smoking area on the property.
- Check-in time is from 3pm to 9pm. If you think you may be late please call us before 9pm and we're happy to make arrangements for late arrivals. We do not offer any guest services after 9pm.
