My family (2 adults + 2 children) had stayed in this place for 3 nights during Aug-2015. Overall, we were very pleased with this place. It has very good location with nice views, located in Tofino - just in front of the sea planes "airport"/wharf (which does not generate extra noise). Quiet place. Very close walking distance to few restaurants,... More

Great location overlooking the harbour. Close to good restaurants, I can highly recommend the SoBo restaurant up the hill. Our friends had a hot tub with their room, fantastic for relaxing under the clear starry skies. Locally owned with accommodation above the shops. Slept like a log here. Highly recommended

Came to Tofino with a friend to celebrate her birthday with a zero. This place was perfect! Hot tub on the balcony. Views to die for. Comfortable beds. Kitchenette to assist with the mixing of martinis. Great place to watch the eagles soar, the sun set and the float planes come and go. Would recommend without "but" to everyone!

First floor apartments will sleep at least 4 and very spacious with 2 queen beds, the kitchen is a little basic but hey we ate out anyway. View from the balcony is superb and you can choose an apartment with a balcony hot tub. The view came into it's own at sunset it was beautiful to see.

We chose this accommadation because we wanted to go whale watching and the company we chose was just down the street ,plus it had great reviews. You check in at the native art shop under the apartment and the owner was very friendly and gave us information about the local area ,including the Tonquin trail ,which is a lovely easy... More

We stayed here for four nights - brilliant. The suite was great, with a small kitchen, table ,hot tub on balcony.And what a view. There is a supermarket, a liquor store and several restaurants close to the lodge. Especially the supermarket is helpful, because Tofino is quite expensive. Only bad thing with the lodge is that the kitchen is not... More

My boyfriend and I came down to Tofino for my birthday and ended up booking with this hotel as we found a really good deal on booking.com. I was blown away with what we received. The room that we booked was a suite, but I couldn't believe how big it was! The room was honestly bigger than my apartment. We... More

We arrived not knowing what to expect. The reception was very efficient in the store below the rooms. Walking up the stairs to the rooms we noticed that the place seemed very well kept. At the top of the stairs is a cabinet loaded with extra coffee, tea etc. (nice touch). When we opened the door to our room we... More

The room is spacious and very clean. The couches and the bed are comfortable. Very quiet neighborhood. Well...Tofino is quiet and peaceful anyways :) The kitchen is generously well equipped. If you plan to cook a bit yourself, remember to bring basic spices, or you can buy almost anything at the local CO-OP supermarket. No need to mention about the... More

First time here. Booked too late to get one of the 5 rooms out of 6 that has a hot tub, but the owner Lewis George and his staff certainly make you want to come back. Very helpful, informative and accommodating. Clean, spacious and well equipped. Very much appreciate the extra feature of an open shelf on the floor with... More
