I booked our rooms at this facility in Mar. 2014, for a visit in June. I spoke with Jeff & after an information filled conversation, booked three Euro Sleeper rooms. We had some concern over the term "Euro Sleepers" & attempted to search for more info on line. Nothing was found. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Brenda, in... More

This is is pleasant and comfortable holiday apartment. The apartment we had was a one bedroom with full kitchen and living area. Very comfortable and quiet. Although situated on the main road in Ucluelet, it was peaceful and handy to the supermarket, liquor store and town centre. Sleeping arrangements in our apartment are a queen bed and single in the...

Hello! Thank you so much for your visit! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and took the time to write! With our accommodation being just off the main road on a residential street in the town centre, you are right - it is so easy to get to everything on foot. Happy travels, Brenda and Jeff More

Great little spot to stay. Very clean rooms. Could hear the foot steps in the room above us in the morning when the fishermen got up early. Nice to have a BBQ outside our door. Rooms a little dark, but your not spending a lot of time in them. Not the place to stay for a romantic weekend, but very... More

we stayed there for 3 nights in June 2014. Everything was just perfect - a great suite with all the amenities, clean and comfortable. Everything you need is just around the corner, staff is freindly, and you get it all for a reasonable price.

The photos of Whales Tail do not do justice to how lovely this place is. I was surprised when I arrived to find a large spotlessly clean suite, with a well equipped kitchen and a good size dinning/living area and a spacious bedroom. There was also a nice patio and furniture which we didn't utilise due to the poor weather.... More

We chose this option for our four guy fishing trip. The hotel has several room configurations and the one we stayed in was a three bedroom unit with twin beds in one of the bedrooms.

Thanks for coming fellas! Glad you enjoyed the unit - an oldie, but a goodie. It is slated for renovation, but probably will be a winter 2014 project rather than this winter.

We had a comfortable one night stay. The suite was large and clean, like a 2 bedroom apartment. One room had a queen, a double and a twin; 2nd room had a queen. The two sofas were probably pull-outs that were at least double sized. There was a view of the harbour from the deck off kitchen. Check-in around the... More

This facility is quite unique. The actual office is at a motel down the road. We were there during the off season and had few guests to deal with. We basically had the run of the place. The King unit had a separate bedroom and was quite spacious. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.... More
