Gull Cottage B&B is an excellent place to stay. It's close to Tofino but not right downtown. It's quiet and right across the street from the beautiful Chesterman Beach. The room was exceptionally clean and had a private bathroom with shower. Breakfast consisted of fruit, gourmet eggs and either croissant or bread. It was certainly more than enough to start... More

We recently stayed at Gull cottage for 3 nights. The location is perfect for Chesterman Beach and is easy to find from the road into Tofino. Our room was perfect and it was lovely to be able to make tea or coffee whenever we wanted. Breakfasts are absolutely wonderful and it was good to sit and chat with other guests.... More

Loved our stay at Gull Cottage. First of all, Tofino is our favorite town on Vancouver Island. And Gull Cottage was a great base for us: it's close enough to downtown without being in the middle of everything, we slept well in our cozy room, the breakfasts were delish, and our hosts Robin and Duncan were awesome with tips on...

We visited Tofino only for a short time, so we spent only two nights at the Gull Cottage. But If we ever return to Tofino, we won't look for another place to stay. The Gull Cottage was easy to find, our room was comfortable (good beds!), very nice host (we really felt welcome), good food (we definitely didn't starve:-D), the... More

We recently spent 2 nights at Gull Cottage and it was one of the highlights to our trip to Tofino. Very comfortable and clean rooms and the hosts treated us like family with wonderful breakfasts and were very helpful with recommendations on restaurants/activities. It was so relaxing and beautiful being just a block of the beach! We loved it and... More

We have recently spent two nights at Gull Cottage and we were looked after extremely well. The location is great with the beach only 100 yards from the door, however, the actual town is about 2 miles away, so be prepared to drive there for restaurants etc. Robin and Duncan shared their local knowledge with us, so enabling us to...

We recently spent 4 nights at Gull Cottage on our first trip to Tofino. It was our first time staying in a B & B and found the experience far superior to a hotel. The location was excellent - beach access directly across the road, walking distance to several amenities, short drive or bicycle ride to town. The breakfasts were... More

Comfortable, cheerful and the most home-like B&B we have ever enjoyed. We were in the Jay room with a private (curtains present but not needed) view of lush woods. With windows open, we enjoyed songbirds to a backdrop of ocean waves. We are early risers, so being above the kitchen (and occasional kitchen noise sound) did not bother us. Simple... More

We looked online for a reasonably priced accommodation to spend the weekend in Tofino for our anniversary. We don't have a lot of money, but I knew what I wanted...cozy and near the beach and WITH A HOTTUB. I thought I found the perfect place. The website certainly says so. I could have booked elsewhere, but settled on Gull Cottage... More

We've been to Gull Cottage numerous times and it is always the same, consistently good! The breakfasts are HOMEMADE DELICIOUS - - Thank you Duncan and Robin. We usually visit in the fall so that our labradoodle can run on the beach (plus there are not so many tourists!!). Gull Cottage is close to everything, not only Chesterman Beach but... More
