Best sleep in years in an amazing setting. We've been to Tofino many times but staying 40 feet from the ocean was amazing. I don't believe there is anything closer to the water than this place. Enjoyed wine and lunch on the deck as often as possible.

the duffin cove is perfectly located at the very end of the road in Tofino. We stayed for 3 nights in mid-September. Great view. Super chill vibe. Would love to stay again for a week or more. Only thing I would change is the sign outside. It is a kind of 70's ish roadside motel sign. How about a nice... More

I stayed 2 nights on a weekend getaway in a studio room overlooking the ocean. Great view, clean, well appointed room made even better by the sounds of the ocean below my window and deck. Location right in the town allowed me to enjoy so much of Tofino without driving. Very convenient. I would return to Duffin Cove!

Stayed here for one night. Close to downtown. Staff was very friendly. The garden is lit up at night and has lots of chairs for relaxing. Our room was beautiful, all appeared to be new. Fridge and kettle with tea, coffee and condiments. Sea view, huge doors and a nice balcony. Really enjoyed.

We had two nights in a double room with a balcony. The room was a bit dated and rather small and the fridge was noisy so we had to turn it off. It was clean and comfortable, and very quiet setting right on the water. It was however a little noisy as we could hear the guy next door snoring... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for the review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, and apologies for the not so great sleep. Being one of the oldest resorts in Tofino, the buildings were not built with the best sound proofing material. However, means that the location is incredible. Upgrades are soon to come and any constructive criticism is... More

We felt like we lucked out getting the last room at Duffin Cove for the weekend. The location was steps away from all that we needed in town, and there was a private walk down to the water. The views were beautiful and the staff were friendly. We had a wonderful weekend stay, and would definitely make a trip back.

Dear Guest, We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay at our small resort. We tend to be fully booked on weekends and are happy to know you snatched up our last room. Being such an old Resort, much of Tofino was built around it. So being only steps away from downtown is a bonus! Thank you for the... More

Stayed in the oceanfront cabin, very private accommodations. This is what Tofino is all about - serene ocean vistas from a rustic cabin. Very clean, and friendly staff. Best for a family or close friends, not very private but everything you need to enjoy one of the best kept secrets on Vancouver Island.

This hotel is overpriced for what it is in my opinion, the rooms are very small and basic, but hey, it's Tofino, and they charge what the market bears. Hard to find power outlets to charge your electronic devices (I had to almost hang my phone from the ceiling as the power outlet was high up on the wall??), bed... More

Thank-you for taking the time to review our hotel. I agree that accommodations in Tofino from June to October are pricey; but you are also correct in your observation that it’s simple economics. Supply and demand drive rates up and down in Tofino, dropping an average of $150 to $900/night this coming November, (depending on the hotel). Duffin Cove Resort... More
