A real bargain A review of Captain Thomson's Resort
We took the 3-day, 2-night package just after Labor Day to get the off-season rates. We got a first floor corner room right on the main channel...the room was decent, if not spectacular, the view was breathtaking, and the ducks on the water below were always hungry! The package also came with a boat tour and a tour of Boldt Castle: The boat tour was interesting and fun, the castle less so...but it's being refurbished.
Our package also included four meals at the Captain's Landing restaurant; if we do this again, we'll do it without including the meals...the food was no better than average...sometimes not quite that good...and the service was slow, though generally cordial. Also, some of the more desirable items on the menu were only partially covered by the package price. In the restaurant's favor, they DID have a strawberry thing on the breakfast menu that was to die for!
In all, it was a decent experience for a decent price, and I'd do it again...if I had the same room and wasn't stuck with the in-house restaurant. In fact, without the restaurant experience, I'd have given it one more "dot" in the review.
