We get to Tofino often as we live a few hours away on the East side of Vancouver Island. This was our 1st stay at the Lodge, although we know lots about it from other friends and family who have stayed there. The stay was excellent, staff friendly and helpful. We stayed in an ocean front room on the ground floor which was perfect as we had our lab with us, so we had both a view and an easy route to the beach. Although on the ground floor, the design of the building is such that privacy is not a concern (the water view might be better from one of the upper floor rooms but as we stayed in Feb, with dark coming early, the view wasn't something we spent a lot of time worrying about & I doubt the upper floor rooms are pet friendly). We ended up eating all meals in the lodge. Breakfast was good with a wide selection of cold buffet items. I have made Granola for over 30 years and the offer on the buffet which is made in house, as were the pastry selections, was as good as anything I can make. Dinners were v good. A welcome addition was that the menu offered a wide price range, from top end to an Apres Surf selection that catered well to family needs. We ate from both areas and have no complaints. For dog lovers, the location was perfect. Access to the beach was easy, the walking great and there were lots of other dogs , all friendly.
