We arrived around 6pm after a long journey and the hotel reception staff told us that we were just in time for a lovely sunset - they weren't wrong! It's a fantastic location set on MacKenzie beach which is perfect! The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and helpful and each room has a wonderful view of the beach. We... More

The location is fabulous. If you want to be sure of a decent night’s sleep then avoid the rooms opposite the “Conference facility”. We were treated to the noise of a rock band the first night and a wedding disco the night after. Most of the staff were helpful but the bistro was chaotic, Basil Fawlty could have managed it...

All rooms look out to the bay and the views were wonderful, but it was just a basic Best Western. Not much ambiance or style for $300 a night. The restaurant was a pleasant surprise and the service was good. Hot tubs were nice, but nothing special. However, they tried to make the spa room look nice.

The shared spaces are well designed and inviting. Breakfast was a lovely meal which was well presented and tasty. Staff were helpful, friendly and tried to make... More

We came to Tofino for the bear watching and despite a rain forecast had 2 very pleasant nearly dry days. The Tin Wis is in an idyllic location and all the rooms have a view over Mackenzie Beach and the first evening we were able to sit and watch the sun go down. Rooms are comfortable. The food at the...

For the price we paid, over $300 per night, I'd expect more. The room was small and the same as any $100/nt hotel, except the bathroom is smaller. They don't change the glasses or mugs in the room. I wonder if they just rinsed them and put them back? Everyday something basic - bath mat, drinking glasses, etc. - was... More

You can't help but try to soak in the view, even when it's foggy it's beautiful. I was there for a small meeting and the front desk staff, cleaning staff, and meeting staff were all very helpful. Room was clean, and loved that it had a bar fridge and microwave. Would love to see maybe some individual microwave popcorn for... More

room rate charged was not acceptable. we got a much lesser room than requested and expected as from previous visits. Having booked the reservation through a agency made the reconciliation very complicated. Next time must book directly with front desk only.
