We stayed in a unit in the beach building and were delighted with it. The room was wonderful, with a gas fireplace, which allowed us to sit and look out at Chesterman Beach, while enjoying a cozy fire in the mornings and evenings.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the scenery is hard to beat. We walked the beach, visited their carving shed, toured the art gallery (and all the other wonderful art pieces they have throughout the buildings) and enjoyed watching the beach, the waves, the surfers, the beach walkers, yes and even the mist.

It was a wonderful holiday.

An fab. What a beautiful place. Staff couldn't do more. We stayed in a suite with a view of the beech and ocean. Great bathrooms. Tea coffee facilities in room. Balcony. Hotel has extra blankets, rain jackets. Wellies and protective rain trousers. Food in hotel delicious. Guest services very helpful organising things to do and advice on local restaurants etc. the physical geography of the place is extra ordinarily beautiful. Well worth a visit. Didn't want to go home.

The staffs at the hotel were amazing. We were traveling with our 14 months boy and it was a perfect hotel for him. We were in the building with the Library (amenity room) on the 2nd floor. The hotel was quite at the time and our little one spend good few hours during our down time. There are selections of DVDs, books, and board games.

All of the staffs were very helpful and friendly.

Love the heated floor in the bath room and the rain coat in boots in the closet was a very nice touch.

Room Tip: Love the building with Library.

This hotel is really special. We had a fantastic time. It almost goes without saying that the location is amazing, and the views of the pacific terrific. There were two things in addition, however, that really set this hotel apart for us.

The first was the service - extremely friendly and nothing seemed too much for the staff - from showing us several rooms so we could pick the one with exactly the view that we wanted (thanks Jamie), to the doorman who went to especial care to get everything we wanted and ensure a drop of rain never fell on our heads (thanks Ron) to the reception staff who went to great lengths to get a copy of a book for us when we left as my wife hadn't finished it, to the guy who took care to ask my opinion about the new exercise bicycle in the fitness room and to all the staff who seemed to automatically know our names whenever they did anything for us. All the staff gave the impression that they were extremely proud of their hotel and keen to show it off to its best advantage, resulting in exceedingly good service.

The second thing that really made this hotel stand out was the attention to detail in the rooms. As well as all the usual luxuries (bathrobes, toiletries,coffee machines etc) our room had a hand carved fireplace, drift wood furniture, umbrellas and rain gear, binoculars and blankets and a decent little library of books on local wildlife etc. Whoever, designed the rooms did them elegantly and clearly thought hard about what the guests would need to make their visit more special. These details really helped distinguish our room from the slightly bland / corporate style that you get at some other luxury hotels.

All in all one of the best stays we've ever had in a hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 103 which we really enjoyed but suspect most are equally good.

April 9 & 10, 2014 Spent an evening at the Inn with my sister and niece. Hotel staff attention to hotel guests was always that next step to courteous & accommodating. The room was perfection. View of the ocean...what more could one ask for. Drinks and appetisers at the Pointe Restaurant relaxing and satisfying, the oysters, delish! Ended the evening with candle light a glass of red in a large, built for two, bubble bath while over looking the ocean. Alas I was alone. However an option for a return trip with someone special. Highly recommended would go back for another visit. Thank You Wickaninnish Inn for a lovely stay. Debra-Lynn

Room Tip: Good to use travel sites to get the best rates. All the rooms over look ocean.

From the minute we parked and the Valet grabbed our bags to the time when we had to go everything was fabulous. We stayed for 3 days at the "Wick" and my wife and I both said were coming back. The property setting is outstanding , the rooms are beautiful, the restaurant 5 star and you dont get a better view than from you table. We brought along our dog and she was welcomed with a Dog basket which included doggie bowls, biscuits, towels , a ball and a bed which made us feel good as we did not know what to expect as this was our first time taking our dog with us. Our room faced the beach as they all do and we were about 100 feet from the beach. The rooms were amazingly quiet for being so close to the pounding surf and it was pounding. Everything in the rooms was decorated to the westcoast theme and the big tub had a view to die for, automated roller blinds, heated floors, gas fireplace, luxurious robes, slippers and they even have rain wear and rubber bots for you as well. They really thought of everything. Loved our stay and look forward to going back again.

Room Tip: Dont think there is a bad room at this place, enjoy.

This was our first stay as it is usually a little out of our price range. However, we are from Port Alberni and there was a "locals" special on for the month of March and we took advantage of it! Had I known it was going to be such a lovely time I would have booked two or three nights!

We were on the 1st floor which worked out well as we had our 4 month old son and all his stuff. We still had an excellent view of the ocean. The beach is just steps away. The room was spacious and cozy. The bath tub was huge and we took full advantage of a glass of wine and a dip in the tub while the baby slept!

I will be keeping my eye out for specials and would love to return!
