Vancouver Island is now home to its first Ascend Hotel Collection property, the Bayside Resort.

Formerly the Quality Resort Bayside, this modern 59-room property by Parksville Beach boasts panoramic ocean views and recently completed significant renovations to its guest rooms and lobby space.

“With beautiful ocean views and outstanding amenities, the Bayside Resort will offer a memorable experience for both business and leisure travellers,” says Brian Leon, president, Choice Hotels Canada. “The resort is the second Ascend hotel to open in British Columbia this year and is a phenomenal addition to our portfolio.”

A spacious property with a nautical theme, the Bayside Resort is a hidden gem for family vacations, intimate getaways, weddings, corporate retreats and business functions. The property offers immaculate beachside guest rooms with modern bathrooms and premium bedding. Suites and standard rooms are equipped with convenient in-room amenities, including flat-screen televisions with satellite programming, high-speed Wi-Fi, work desks with ergonomic chairs and Nespresso machines.

The facility features six banquet and meeting rooms capable of hosting upwards of 200 people, first-class catering and onsite business essentials. Guests also have access to a fully-equipped fitness centre with squash court, outdoor tennis courts, outdoor heated swimming pool and hot tub, as well as the onsite Bayside Bistro & Lounge, offering west coast favourites and an extensive wine list, including vintages from some of the British Columbia’s top wineries.

The resort is conveniently located near many other local attractions, including Butterfly World and Gardens, Horne Lake Caves, Little Qualicum Cheeseworks, Moobery Winery and Mount Washington.
