This accommodation is part of the First Nation gift shop and gallery "House of Himwitsa" and consists of only 5 rooms, the room we stayed in was very spacious, clean and homely with all mod cons. All this for a very competitive price. My wife (fiance at the time) and I stayed here for a couple of nights in October... More

My wife and I recently made a trip to the west side of Vancouver Island and stayed in Tofino. Instead of making a booking in one of the many beach accommodations we opted to stay at the 'House of Himwitsa', located right in the town and overlooking the harbour, -which ended up being an great choice. This is a very... More

OK so we were unlucky with the weather, it rained a lot while we were there. But the high point was this hotel. The room was lovely, fantastic decor, very very spacious. Hot tub was a nice touch, I was determined to use it despite the rain. Checking in I think was done in the downstairs shop full of wonderfully... More

We loved this self contained apartment with its amazing balcony, hot tub and its views very clean and stylish, it is very close all attractions and restaurants, the only problem was a humming sound which appeared during the night which could cause a problem to a light sleeper

Tofino is an expensive place to stay. We were so pleased to find such a spacious and clean room at Himwitsa, which was also a great value, relatively speaking. It was lovely to enjoy the great views off the balcony with a cup of coffee. Our room had a great little kitchenette and a grocery store is only a short... More

We stayed at this hotel for just one night, but was it ever a spectacular night! The room is nice, but forget about the room, and head onto the balcony! We had room #1 which had a good size, clean, hot-tub with the most amazing oceanfront views! The nights are generally cool there, so a hot-tub was perfect! Don't be... More

This is a lodge consisting of 5 rooms on the top floor of a building with a native gift shop and restaurant on the ground floor. There are 3 rooms with large balconies facing the back overlooking the ocean. We stayed in room #2. The room was large and spacious with great views of the ocean, government dock and mountains,...

We spent 2 nights at The House of Himwitsa. We opted for room no. 2 without spa. It was a very spacious room with 2 queen beds and kitchenette facility. The view from the room was just magnificent! You could see the water and the mountain from the bed. You could also enjoy sunset from the balcony. Highly recommended.

Stayed 3 nights and found the rooms beautiful, scrupulously clean, and comfortable. Really enjoyed the private hot tub on our deck overlooking the scenic wharf and ocean. The kitchenette came in handy for breakfasts and suppers on the deck. Will come again.
