“Great location!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

We enjoyed our stay immensely at Gull Cottage B&B. Our hosts Duncan and Robin were a pleasure and enjoyed our morning chats with them during breakfast. My BF was touched by the bit of French Robin spoke with him as English is not his main language. The location of the B&B is fantastic, just a few steps from the beach. Enjoyed the daily visits by Mulan (one of their two cats), a sweet cuddly cat. We appreciated all their recommendations for Tofino in regards to hiking and restaurants and giving up recommendations when we were off to Vancouver. Will definitely will return in the future and recommend my friends to your great B&B. Many thanks!

My husband and I had been yearning to go to Vancouver Island for some time. We were told by friends in Calgary that Tofino was beautiful. We were not disappointed. Gull cottage was very clean and comfortable. Robin and Duncan were welcoming after our long journey. The breakfasts were awesome. We had our own space to relax and rest in. Cross the road and walk down a short path and you arrive at the Pacific Ocean any time of the night or day...miles and miles of beach...what can I say. The area will take your breath away....rain or shine. Our hosts were very helpful pointing us to restaurants and other iconic attractions. Tofino was a short drive away. We wish we could have stayed longer...and there will be a next time.

Room Tip: All areas of the house were quiet and clean. The room we had faced the back of the house with lots o...

My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous 4-day stay at Gull Cottage along with our friends from Saskatoon in early July. We would definitely recommend this B&B to others, and indeed have already done so. We had the Spruce Room, which is of adequate size and includes a private (personal use only) nice-sized bathroom located immediately adjacent. Our room, and indeed the entire home, is very clean, which was greatly appreciated. Our friends were in the Rainforest Room, which is very spacious and has a large bathroom ensuite. There is one other room for rent, which also includes an ensuite bathroom, although we did not encounter the folks in that room during our stay. Each day kicked off with a wonderful breakfast, prepared jointly by owners Robin and Duncan (Duncan lays claim to being the 'head' chef!). Along with the delightful meal, we all enjoyed the conversation with both Robin and Duncan, and also the company of their two dogs (worked for us; dogs would be kept in a separate room if that was a bother to anyone). Robin and Duncan also gave us some good tips on things to day and places to eat. The B&B location is great; just one row of houses from Chesterman Beach and an easy two-minute walk along a path to get there. As for Tofino and area, let's just say that we found it to be wonderful. We were blessed with four beautiful weather days ... some fog and overcast in the morning followed by full sunshine for the rest of the day. The walking trails are a must; old growth forest that has been preserved for our enjoyment. Of course, don't forget to stop at Cathedral Grove on the way in (about midway between Parksville and Port Alberni). For our full three days in the area, we spent one at each of Tofino, Eucluelet and in the park (including the must-do Long Beach). Each day included one or more hiking trails (all quite easy) and walks along one or more beaches. No problem finding good restaurants; naturally, our major focus was on the fresh seafood. A full five-stars from this vacationer!!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are fine. The Rainforest Room is definitely the 'king' of the rooms (size...

This was a very nice place. Our "Rainforest Room" felt like we were in a tree house, but cozy and warm with a nice bath - a bubble bath after surfing is a great idea. The food was quite good, and the owners and their pets were very kind. We got a lot of help finding restaurants after arriving late - they even made reservations and reserved us the last crab in the house!

We had a lovely stay at this B&B. It is in a great location: just steps away from the beach and Wickaninnish Inn, and a short drive into downtown Tofino.
Robin and Duncan prepared some delicious breakfasts and were ready to help with suggestions for dinner. Great place to stay!

We enjoyed a delightful 4 night stay at Gull Cottage Bed and Breakfast. Robin and Duncan are great hosts. Robin is as cheerful as her name and made us feel at home immediately. We were a group of 4 - two couples. My husband and I stayed in the Rainforest Room which had the bathroom ensuite. Our friends stayed in the Blue Jay room with the bathroom adjoining. Our rooms were immaculate and very comfortable. There is a library to enjoy and watch a movie and also a music room to relax in as well. We also made use of a small sitting area upstairs with a coffee station and small fridge to use. We put our supplies for happy hour there and Robin was kind enough to supply some ice cubes for drinks.

Our breakfasts were delicious. Duncan is a fabulous cook and Robin makes great smoothies.
We enjoyed great conversations each morning and lots of light-hearted banter! That is part of the charm of bed and breakfasts for my husband and I.
.
Robin and Duncan offered us lots of information on what to see in the area and tips on how to get the most out of our time there. They had several suggestions for restaurants as well. The B&B is literally steps from Chesterman Beach and it is truly lovely as are all the beaches in the area. The Rainforest Loop is a must see especially the upper loop as well as the Wild Pacific Trail at Ucluelet.

We had good weather for the entire stay which was abit unusual. Lots of sun, no rain, and a light jacket with summer attire. The Tofino area is a beautiful part of Canada and we are glad we had the opportunity to visit and stay at the Gull Cottage B&B. We will definitely return and will recommend them to everyone.

My two teenagers and I spent 4 nights at this lovely cottage. All our needs were taken care of and we did have some special requests that came up. The owners are very friendly and thoughtful and do everything they can to make you feel at home. The room was perfect for three of us; very comfortable and spacious. Breakfasts were healthy and hearty and kept us going through mid day. Very nice to have a kettle and tea on hand as well as a small shared fridge. Also very handy for surfing. Big thanks for making our vacation special!
