The position on the beach is great and the owners eco-friendly attitude is to be applauded. However this is not a cheap hotel and the Pointe restaurant (particularly if one thought in Canadian dollars rather than pounds sterling!) was one of the most expensive meals I have paid for.
Our room was unimaginative but the bathroom compensated. The in room dining menu is so thin on choice you just know they want you back at the Pointe to take your cash!
Bicycle hire at CAD$26 for half a day is a bit rich as well.
Having travelled through West Canada and seen 'good' hotels swamped with tour buses and a general standard of mediocraty,I think the Wick is probably one of Canada's best. It is a good hotel, it just costs a bit more than it should.
- 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
