Join us in congratulating Ladysmith!!!

Ladysmith, November 8, 2017 – Ladysmith’s beautiful and historic First Avenue has been selected by the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) as Canada’s 2017 Great Street. The award was decided by a jury of certified planning professionals during the Great Places in Canada contest. CIP’s review of 17 submissions from across Canada was based on a set of criteria of planning best practices that considered social, economic, and accessibility and safety factors, and elements such as design, culture, history, and landscape.

Make it one of your favorite stops while traveling the island!

You’ll wish you stayed longer!


Lovely house in a very interesting area

We stayed for three nights and enjoyed our time at Hawley Place B&B. Mandy and Dwaine were excellent hosts and added to the stay. We had the king room which was superb with a wonderfully comfortable bed and the best pillows of our trip. There was a nice area in the ‘turret’ with five windows and two easy chairs (why do most B&B’s only put one easy chair in a room?) Tea and coffee making facilities were available downstairs and there was a microwave and crockery/cutlery next to our room.

Breakfast was good with home made yoghurt, preserves, bread etc, and then a choice of cooked breakfast to order. In all we had a lovely stay but must mention that we weren’t expecting the property to be so close to a traffic light junction on the trans-Canada highway. After the peace of north Vancouver Island, there was background traffic noise when outside or through an open window. Having said that, it didn’t stop us sleeping at night! If you’re used to traffic then ignore the last!
