The hotel has an amazing location with rooms as well equipped as we have seen. The bathrooms are also wonderful with the same great views. Staff are very helpful if sometimes a bit obsequious. There is no air conditioning so if you are lucky enough to get a warm spell the rooms are hard to keep cool. Given global warming,... More

My husband and I went for an impromptu, much-needed break. It was high season and we were calling last-minute, so availability was low. Luckily, there was room for us, but only if we split our 4-night stay between two rooms in two different buildings. At first I was worried we would feel unsettled and that the switch would make things... More

Four wonderful days at the Wickaninnish spoil one for life! Staff are warm and friendly, our room had lovely, views of the Paxific, a fireplace for cozy evenings and it is close to Chesterman beach and hiking trails. The Pointe restaurant features local ingredients and gourmet type delicious cuisine. A gem for sure!

My husband surprised me by taking us to the Wickaninnish Inn for our 1st wedding anniversary. We stayed at one of the suites that overlooked the water breaking against the rocks. We could sit on our deck and take in the sunset disappearing across the Pacific. We partook in a couples massage in the outdoor hut - the one that... More

My wife and I first stayed at the "Wick" in the Summer of 2014 after a recommendation from a colleague at work. We found a room by chance of a cancelation back then and we loved it so much that we chose the "Wick" as the location for our wedding in the Summer of 2015. The location, the hotel and... More

No, Wickaninnish Inn far exceeded my expectations. Staying here was a tactile experience - a feast for the eyes - it was simply perfect. My husband kept asking me if I was okay as he had never - in decades - seen me so quiet and calm.

We have visited the Wickaninnish at Tofino every other year since 2010, first to get married then to celebrate our anniversary. Yes, it's expensive, but worth every penny. No other hotel comes close to this perfection, yet it remains relaxed and casual in its feel. Staff, facilities, food - all truly wonderful.

Room was very comfortable. View was wonderful. Extremely expensive, but worth marking a special occasion. Location on the beach is fabulous. Staff was friendly and attentive. Pointe Restaurant is expensive but extraordinary. Driftwood Café was very good.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wickaninnish Inn, a Relais & Chateaux 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. ... more   less
