We have stayed in the cabins twice. The first time was with a group of friends and we all had such a great time (especially us because this is when we fell in love!) The cabins are quaint, clean and beautiful and the staff are great! Since we fell in love at Duffin Cove we decided to get married there!... More

Average motel with great views, check in was quick and friendly. Early check in was great and much appreciated. Walking distance to many restaurants and whale watching tours. Stayed in a suite style room overlooking the ocean. Private balcony in every room is a big plus. Nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean!

Shannon was a gem! We checked in early and she upgraded us to a cabin on the water right away, amazing!! We were right on the ocean in the most modest cabin for 4, it was my boyfriend and I and our best friend and we all 3 didn't want to leave this place come Friday am. You right by... More

we stayed here in one of the hotel type rooms, we have booked a cottage but they messed up, the room wasn't bad, was clean, the view was pretty good from here but ... disappointing compared to getting one of the cabins with the great view ... price is high but most is in Tofino, guess it was what we...

We spent a few nights in a suite after Xmas 2013 with our adult children. The view was lovely and the location was really handy as we did all our own cooking and it was only a block to the grocery store. It was nice to wander around town and spend time at the coffee shops when we weren't at... More

My boyfriend and I planned on staying here for one night on Saturday Nov. 9th in 2013. After arriving and being awe struck by the beautiful scenery, and the cozy feeling of the cottage-like room, we had to stay another night. Thankfully the owners were able to fit us in on the short notice and were very accommodating. They have... More

So we stayed in Duffin Cove for two nights November 9-11, 2013. We had a fantastic view from our balcony, our suite was very nice. I loved the fact that it matched my value/price expectations (we payed $99/night + taxes). I rated it average because the resort, which consists of several houses/cabins divided into several units is already in need... More

Hi Julie, Thank you for sharing your experiences of the resort. Yes the renovations have begun, and to start we are painting the rooms, considering inventories and replacing the roof on one of the cabins. We are forecasting another busy high season and plan to implement considerable improvements by spring. See you back in Tofino! More

It was an okay room next to the water but really needed some upgrading to make it appealing. After complaining to management, the price was reduced to $100 from $184 and I was satisfied that was a fair price.

Management attempted to handle a complaint and create a comfortable and relaxing experience for you at Duffin Cove, yet the actions they took resulted in a revenue loss of 45% and a negative headline review on TripAdvisor. Considering a 30% profit margin on a 13 room resort, this review is an example of how $84.00 was spent on negative advertising.... More

The resort's web site is a bit over the top, compared to reality. That said, the place has its charms, our one-bedroom suite was clean, towels were plush, there was just a bit of scruffiness to the place. But hey, this is part of old Tofino's charm before all the high-end resorts arrived!

Hi - We appreciate your review. It is the clean rustic charm we strive for that keeps visitors returning to their favorite in-town atmosphere at the peaceful cove. Our website will have a new look this winter, making it much easier to view our cabins, studios and suites as they are. More

Although it's not a five star standard hotel, Duffin Cove makes up for its lack of "luxury" by charm, incredible staff, and the best view you could ask for. The front desk staff, who was the owner, welcomed us warmly and we were offered a great deal. As soon as we saw the room and the ocean view, we rushed... More

Thank-you very much for your fantastic review. Whitney, (our 70lb puppy), has made a definite impact on the resort and views all our guests as her 'playmates'.
