Don't stay here if you're looking for some luxury or even need a hairdryer, lol! Seemed like a basic fishing lodge for the most part with the docked "Canadian Princess" large boat as kind of the attraction I suppose . You can dine on the boat.

It was also within walking distance of a couple different restaurants and shops, which was nice because at 7 months pregnant, I don't seem... More

Today I discovered Ucluelet’s Princess Fishing Lodge. I am writing this review from my room where just a few minutes ago I was able to throw a stone directly into the ocean! So I am literally a stone’s throw from the water and the permanently moored national historical treasure the HMS Princess which is now Ucluelets distinctly unique fine dining... More

We went in off season just for a weekend getaway. So nice to relax and unwind from our hectic lives we left behind. Our stay was pleasant, as the weather was not so cooperative. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly, and accomodating. We will be back to experience the resort in full operation later in the... More

We went to Canadian Princess in March this year and we had a great time. We have been before but we went whale watching and the whole family just loved it. The food was absolutely amazing, wanted to try everything on the menu. Love the Wild Pacific trail and Long Beach .
