4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our room was on the second floor... I thought it was going to be noisy but were were pleasantly surprised on how quiet... except for the bouncing little boy at 5 am. the view is perfect... but the front end staff are amazing. Very helpful and made us feel comfortable... even supplied firewood for the best beach campfire

A very simple hotel but in a beautiful spot. Every room faces out to the pacific ocean and is only a very short walk from the beach. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. They were fitted with a fridge and microwave which is always useful. We would stay here again if ever in Tofino.

We stayed two nights here, in two different rooms (the hotel was fully booked). The location is idyllic, one of the most incredible views from a hotel room ever. Both rooms were on the 3rd floor, giving us stunning views of the beach. The first night we had a suite, which was the last word in luxury. The huge tub... More

This was literally the only available room at peak season, and now I understand why. A physically gorgeous spot, but the hotel has the quality one would expect of a $100 room, at almost five times that rate. Everything is cheap, the bed uncomfortable, the staff disinterested, the "free" breakfast worth its price. Don't be like us: plan ahead and... More

Every room at this hotel has a sea view and are literally yards from the Pacific. A quirky room with cooker, microwave, fridge and open fire. There was a continual wood smoke smell which is not particularly wanted in mid-summer, but the room was a great size, very comfortable and we always had the windows open when we were in... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the Tin Wis Resort and were immediately wowed by the views from our balcony of the sea and beach - only a few paces from the rooms. A comfortable and clean room with plenty of space to put suitcases. Coffee facilities, a fridge, a microwave - all the amenities you'd expect to have. Sadly... More

I'm a Toronto city girl who doesn't love the outdoors, and this suite was perfect. It was clean, everything was easy, and the staff was excellent. The GM himself woke up early to make sure that I had a lift to the airport. Not sure it was worth the price point , one of the two wash machines was "out... More

In the middle of our stay here and the hotel is good. Rooms comfortable and have lovely sea view. Visited restaurant last night and ended up leaving after 30 mins of waiting when there were plenty of empty tables yet to be cleared. Staff seemed totally out of their depth and chaotic. To be fair to the receptionist when we... More

I didn't know what to expect from Tofino & the hotel and I was blown away by both. The Tin Wis is in a great location, with stunning beach views, spacious low-rise rooms, all with balconies and it makes for the most relaxing stay in one of the most beautiful places in the world. It's just a minute's walk to... More
