The pub fish and chips is surprisingly good, the ambience just right. Whether you have just completed the West Coast Trail, want to spend a few... More

We finished the west coast trail and wanted hot showers & warm beds. The motel was a welcome & pleasant haven. Our room was clean and comfy with kitchenette and a bedroom. Seems like the motel is upgrading and a few little conveniences will no doubt be addressed. But staff were so helpful and friendly (we were able to do... More

Our two families spent a day and night in Bamfield before heading out in the west coast trail. This is a basic motel made better by the amazing Ron and everyone else who helped us. We had a series of unfortunate car troubles and lost wallets and Ron went out of his way to help us both in the middle... More

Located in the hub of Bamfield, at the four way stop, we were in easy walking distance of tHe general store, pub, and restaurants. Our room was newly and tastefully redecorated, with all new accoutrements. Helpful and happy staff, really good fish and chips, easy to recommend.

We Checked in late, the staff was very pleasant, no standard rooms with queen beds left so they gave us a suite, queen bed was like new and very comfortable. Pub was closed but we were starved so they cooked us a quick dish to go. Very accommodating and considerate.

My boyfriend Paul with the CFB USAR team just spent 3 days at this motel and was treated like family by Ron. He said the staff and Ron made him feel welcomed and the fish and chips in the motel pub were amazing! Highly recommends this motel to others and can't wait to go back.

Bamfield is a special place. Not a usual tourist destination so the town and its amenities may not conform to international standards. Ron was an excellent and friendly host. The motel was an excellent choice for two nights to visit our son at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre. Clean, bright & spacious room. Good quality pub food at the motel... More

This is a gem of a little spot in a most stunning area of the world! We only had an afternoon and overnight but Ron (the amazing hotel manager, tour guide and chef) made us feel so welcome and took such good care of us. The rooms are simple, comfortable and clean and the added touch of fresh camellias from... More
