If your looking for wildlife this is the place to come and base yourself! It's totally worth the extra time need to get up here. I would recommend getting a rental car to drive up here rather than getting the bus as we did. We took the greyhound from Campbell river to Port McNeill which was fine, however I think... More

You definitely pay for the charm at the resort. Happily the restaurant, though pricey, was quite delicious. Not a great deal of vegetarian fare. The room was really basic and small for three people (cabin 18). It was perfectly adequate for a one night stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Bring food as the general store has only...

Tucked away in the north, past the hustle and bustle is this wonderful community called Telegraph Cove. Lots to do and see, stroll the quaint boardwalk and imagine how life was years ago, excellent self- guided tour. Visit the whale museum located at the end of the boardwalk. Take a whale watch or grizzly bear tour and see the wilder... More

My wife and I stayed at Telegraph Cove Resort in a package tour arranged in Campbell River. We cannot say enough about the scenic surroundings, the whale museum and the pleasant staff, but the "the rustic cabins preserving the historic charm" could use an upgrade or two not least would be decent non sagging beds. It would also be nice... More

This is a quaint location with spectacular views and excursion opportunities. The "rustic" cabin we stayed in was adequate, however the two single beds were horrible to sleep on. I think the mattresses must be almost as old as the buildings - very saggy in the middle. For the price that is charged for the accommodations they should improve on... More

The upside: this is a stunning little cove with some brilliant day trips. The whale and bear watching are absolutely superb. You can also kayak and do other outdoor activities. The concept behind Telegraph Cove is good and appeals to travellers wanting to get the old world, north Island experience. The problem is all in the execution. We stayed in... More

Telegraph Cove has a lot of historic interest and is a great place to book a fishing or whale watching trip. It could also be a good choice for a family or group of friends to share one of the historic houses for a few nights. I cannot recommend "the bunk house" for a one-night couple's stay. This small upstairs... More

We just stayed at the Telegraph Cove Resort for a couple of nights, but it's a beautiful place. The cabin was fine - a little need of maintenance in places, but clean and well equipped. One tiny bathroom for 6 of us was a pain, but otherwise there was plenty of space. The marina was busy with fishing boats. We're... More

We stayed at the resort for one evening while we visited the cove for a whale watching trip. The staff were friendly when checking in and out. The view from our room (right over the marina) was beautiful. Yes, the rooms are a little dated, but that is part of the charm of staying in a tiny resort in an... More

We stayed in the yellow house, one of the first houses on the left. Yes, these are old houses but they are clean, beds are good and kitchen/bathroom is well equipped. And with a family of 5 you have enough space in the living room & bedrooms. I would certainly recommend this in comparison to the big motel at the... More
