Wedding Testimonials

Read what our guests had to say about their Wedding!


All of the hotel staff, and the Boathouse staff, we absolutely cannot say enough great things.

The entire experience from start to finish has been incredibly positive. Everyone has been great to work with, the quality, value and ambiance of the venue was impeccable, and the overall execution of the event was second to none.

I really truly would like to extend my praise beyond just our email, so if you could please let me know if there is a particular website or person/people I may contact to provide a top notch review, I would be more than happy to do so.

Again, our utmost appreciation and praise for the work that you and your team put in, we are so happy with the way things went and certainly grateful for selecting such an incredible reception venue!

Best regards,

Mandy & Trent

On March 29, 2014 I married my wonderful husband at the Inn at the Quay. It was a wonderful day. The staff at the inn were incredibly helpful before the wedding when my husband and I went for our first meeting with the event planner I was terrified having never planned a wedding before and having very little money as my husband was still in school as was I, funds were very short. The even planned listened to our thoughts and concerns and proceeded to give us options which were amazing. Once deciding on the inn, the wedding planner was very helpful in being there for whatever our questions were. The day of the wedding everything went according to plan and they were very helpful in accomodating any health concerns in terms of menu we had, my father in law has severe allergies so they were able to make him a special plate, and then in the current day with all the gluten free allergies and preferences they were able to put labels on the dessert buffet so the "pickier" people knew what to avoid. My husband prides himself on the fact that the day of the wedding many guests were telling him he didn't look nervous or stressed, to which he responded "these staff got it handled I am good". To this day many friends and family have told us how much fun they had on our wedding day which makes me incredibly happy that we chose the Inn at the Quay, it was wonderful to be able to have the wedding and the reception all in the same place and the decor was gorgeous. When preparing my own decor for the wedding I was told less is more this was very true we really didn't have to do much as the current decor was amazing we just added our own personal touch. Just recently we celebrated our own year anniversary by staying at the inn in the room we had on our wedding night and it was just as amazing the staff were again very accomodatingand welcoming. In the end we had an amazing experience celebrating our marriage with our friends and family at the Inn and we look forward to many anniversarys spent there.

We had a beautiful wedding at the Inn at the Quay last April, it was all organized in less than two weeks! And was a pure success--the staff was very welcoming, professional and accommodating of our short notice, the guests enjoyed their stay and would for sure recommend the Inn to their family and friends--we were extremely pleased!

Liz and Zak - April 2014

We live by the Fraser River & wanted to get married in our community.

We approached the Inn at the QUay in February 2014 to start planning for our end of August wedding. The Inn at the Quay catering manager was friendly, open, well organized, and quickly summarized decisions made at each meeting with a follow up email.

The wedding reception was perfect. We had an open bar & appetizers in the upstairs mezzanine for guests while we had our photos taken. The food platters were gorgeous and plentiful and our guests tell us that the appies were delicious.

We dined in the Hyack room which overlooks the Fraser River. It was beautifully set up as well. THe linen table cloths and napkins were crisp and white, the china, cutlery and glasses good quality.

The dinner buffet was divine. We were spoiled for choice: salmon, roast beef, crispy veg, pasta and several salads were on offer. THere was a lovely selection of deserts including creme brulee in wee cups.

All food was presented in an appealing and artistic manner and was delicious.

The service was impeccable. Wine was promtly and cheerfully served to our guests, plates subtly removed and transition between courses seamless.

The bar tender who was stationned in the Mezzanine was also efficient & friendly.

The catering manager was extreme helpful and pro active about the two guests with food allergies. Everyone said the food was delicious. We too were pleased with the quality and presentation.

The evening was perfect. There were no glitches at all. The microphones worked, the signing and gift table set up, the food and wine good quality and best of all was the friendly staff.

Thank you to the Inn at the Quay catering manager and her staff for helping to make our wedding full of lovely memories.

Pierrette and Rick - August 2014

We would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at the Inn at the Quay for making Claire and Duncan's wedding day something really special.

The organisation and all the help that we received from the banquet staff and the reservations department was exceptional and it all went off without any hitches.

It was a truly beautiful setting and the weather was also in our favour on the day.

This all combined to make it a memorable day, both for the newlyweds as well as ourselves.

Yours appreciatively

Thank you again for all of your help with our wedding. We had so many compliments about the venue and the food. Bart and I were so pleased with the service and it was tremendous fun to have many of our friends and family stay in the hotel with us on the same floor. Lots of people said it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding, and we were very happy with all the dessert there was. We had lots of left over wedding cake as a result, which worked out great for serving at the gift opening the next day. Thank you for all of your prompt and helpful correspondence during the planning process. The room looked absolutely beautiful as well and felt like the perfect size. We will definitely recommend the Inn at the Quay to anyone planning any events in the future.
