We spent a night in one of their appartments, plenty of room (sleeps 7 easily), clean, has character. They have spent a lot of thought to every detail, it seems, both in the hotel and the pub/restaurant, and that creates a very special, cozy atmosphere. We loved it. Not a budget hotel, but worth every $.
We just spent a night at the stage lodge, but the experience was very positive in every aspect. Conveniently located within walking distance to the centre of town, very clean, well maintained, plenty of towels for the whole family. Personnel very friendly and approachable with good tips for restaurants and sights. Not pricey. Very recommendable.
Good location at the heart of the Orenco neighborhood, nice setting, nice interior. Food was of medium quality, and a bit on the expensive side. Service very friendly and helpful. Makes you want to try out other places...
I recently brought my car there for a repair and was positively surprised by their professionalism and speed. Since this was a warranty repair, all I had to do is pre-arrange by telephone, bring car, wait half and hour, sign off, and drive home happy. Well managed, friendly service guys, well organized.
We had 4 large prints framed by Kennedy recently, and they did an excellent job explaining the various options, and gave a detailed rundown of the costs. We are very satisfied with the results and would definitely recommend this business to anyone aiming for a high-quality, museum-like framing job for their artwork.
I recently checked their inventory of used Volvo wagons, which I found to be very competitively priced. Most cars have more than 100k miles, but seem to be in good or fair condition, sometimes maintenance done by Swede One themselves. As these cars, pre 2001, tend to run for at least 200-300k when regularly serviced, this is the place to buy and remain a customer for regular inspections. No hassle, friendly sales staff.
This is a well known and internationally respected flying school (at the core, it has other businesses as well, such as maintenance, charter, etc.) which has set industry standards. People from as far away as China and Norway, among many other nationalities, take part in their pilot programs both for fixed wing and helicopters. I highly recommend them, they are as professional and safe as you can get in this field. Great way to see Portland, the mountains, or the coast as well.
We had a nice dinner there with the whole family, very fast and friendly service (partly self-service), the seafood was excellent, fresh, and even got our not so seafood friendly kids to dive in. Pricing decent, venue with some wear&tear, but good atmosphere. Recommend fish&chips.
We recently purchased a photograph at the BW gallery, after checking out the current exhibits and then asking for additional prints from a specific artist. This turned into a wonderful tour of more artwork and the discovery of the print we now own. Personnel was very helpful and friendly, the artwork itself priced very reasonably. The art we saw covered a wide range of styles and concepts, the common denominator being a certain freshness and vitality often not seen at more commercially driven galleries. Definitely worth a visit!
My son had broken part of his back wheel and chain glider recently, it almost looked like a complete wreck. I then called River City Bicycles and described the affair. They gave me a very detailed description of what probably needed fixing and a rough estimate of what it would cost (..are you prepared to spend X amount for the repair?). They also mentioned the time needed for the repair, and - 4 days after the drop off - had the bike fixed and running like new, moneywise right on the spot. Definitely exceeded my expectations, would recommend to anyone looking for good bikes, parts or competent repairs.
