GreenLeaders Platinum level
Wickaninnish Inn, a Relais & Châteaux property since 1997, overlooks the Pacific Ocean from a rocky point on Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast, near the eclectic town of Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park. Two contemporary cedar buildings, set against a backdrop of ancient rainforest, boast an extensive local art collection (complemented by the neighbouring wood carving shed), and all rooms and suites offer ocean or beach views, gas fireplace, soaker tub and individual balcony. Uncompromising service, including a Clefs d’Or Concierge team, is a standard. The sole resort on Chesterman Beach, Tofino’s longest at 2.5km/1.5mi, the Inn is home to refined West Coast cuisine at The Pointe Restaurant and naturally-inspired treatments at its intimate Ancient Cedars Spa. Tofino’s McDiarmid family welcomes you to this locally owned, world-renowned sanctuary offering Rustic Elegance on Nature’s Edge.

We celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary at the Wick. Probably the best vacation stay we've experienced over all those forty years. Apart from a stunning location and a spectacular room with a view, the service was exceptional. We'll be back.

This was certainly 1 of the best hotels I ever stayed in. Staff, rooms, restaurant for breakfast and dinner... everything was really impeccable. The difference is made in a lot of small things and details. I will be back for sure !

The accommodations, food and service were perfection! The staff really made this stay so special, they gave us great recommendations and were always very responsive and helpful. Absolutely worth the price to stay here and you cant beat the location/proximity to downtown Tofino. And dont skip a trip to the spa!

The Wickaninnish Inn has a stellar reputation. We were looking forward to our four night stay. But... the weather was warm and, so too was our room. We were astonished to find no air conditioning. The staff tried to make it right by delivering a large AC unit. But it was really loud and made it almost impossible to access our balcony without dismantling it. That night, we had an underwhelming and very expensive dinner in the restaurant... which with its panoramic view... was also too warm for comfort. We decided to go home, cutting our visit short. I politely explained to the front desk that we were leaving and the reason. The front desk staff member replied for all to hear: "You paid in full, so there is no refund." I was dumbstruck. I didn't ask for a refund. I regret having to write this review. We expected to be wowed. And, while the location is spectacular, the Inn should be doing much better. Almost $1,000 a night with no air conditioning. Not acceptable.

Prime location, impeccable service. Could not be bettered. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a few days of luxury in a beautiful part of the country. The road to get there was long and twisty, but worth doing.

Loved the Wick. Beautiful surroundings; the room was cozy, clean, and well appointed. The staff was gracious, helpful. The walk on the beach is spectacular. The food was good, but lunch needs more variety.

We arrive. They demand $1,200 for incidental expenses in advance to be taken off my debit card (four days at $300 a day). They say we are booked in for dinner and if we cancel we will be fined $25 each. They warn if we smoke a cigarette on the premises we face a $300 penalty. All this within moments of arrival - it makes you feel about as welcome as a cup of cold sick. Our room is alive with mosquitoes - I have never been so badly bitten - while an hour-long wait for dinner is, in my opinion, simply unacceptable. The hotel is in a stunning position on the coast with lovely rooms (though the ceiling echoes every footstep of the guests in the room above, waking you early in the morning) but it is pretentious, super-expensive and, as already mentioned, aggressively hostile towards its innocent customers. It is places like this which make me hate Canada.

Fantastic resort. Charming town. Totally relaxing surf. Fantastic food. What more is there to ask for? We met with our daughters who are from Vancouver and London England for a post-covid holiday and everyone was blown away. We went on excursions with Ocean Outfitters and saw eagles, whales, seals, sea otters and bears. We played with our dog on the beach and took surfing lessons. A 10 out of 10 holiday for all of us.
