A relaxing newly built beachside lodge overlooking Cox Bay was our accommodation of choice for a long weekend trip to Canada’s surfing capital, Tofino. A conservative 3 hour drive from the Vancouver’s BC Ferries dock at Nanaimo, the Long Beach Lodge offers visitors a luxurious yet relaxed break surrounded by lush temperate rainforest on one side, and the vast Pacific Ocean on the other.....

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the Great Room to avoid an early wake up call from the Breakfast crowd.

We have stayed here in all seasons. New Year's was a great time, for example. We have tried the cottages with friends and various rooms for just the two of us - the latest being the penthouse suite [on a half-price special]. The staff are exceptional - always helpful. And always cheery - but never excessively so. Many are surfers and offer interesting perspectives on their obsession. The Great Room is a true treat - whether to just have a drink or snack or for a meal. Dining is consistently first-rate and the wine list is nicely balanced in terms of cost and BC emphasis. We have stayed in the best room at the costly Wickaninnish Inn and eaten at the Pointe restaurant there - but it is Long Beach Lodge that we come back to repeatedly. The view is second to none anywhere in the world and the always present surfers add a fascinating aspect when taking in the scene. Sunsets can be spectacular. The recently added hot tub and sauna facilities are dandy. Lots of nice touches - robes, rain ponchos, even pails and sand shovels for little kids. Dog friendly. What's not to like? If you are okay with the rates then you will love the lodge. In warm season do leave your window open at night to hear the surf.

Room Tip: Remember the cottages have no view. The ocean view rooms are worth the extra cost.

Jim, thank you for your positive review, we really appreciate your patronage over the years. As you are aware, we work constantly to try to improve the guest experience with improvements, not only to the property but in whom we hire and train to work at the lodge. We really offer two types of accommodation, lodge rooms for couples and singles and the cottages for families, or groups of friends travelling together.
We look forward to your next visit.

When a facility is billed as high-end, it better be perfect. Our gripes: Room designed for looks, not function. Louvres separate bathroom from main room so there is no bathroom privacy or noise attenuation. Shower is a 36" corner unit... don't drop the soap! Vanity counter top barely holds toiletries, but there is a huge 6 foot oval tub that is rarely used.

Power outlets at floor level... just crawl under the desk to plug in your chargers, no problem! But there's a huge tub to look at...

We got a nice bottle of wine complementary for our anniversary... actually a 375 mil half bottle. But there's a huge tub to look at...

Expensive restaurant, so no locals come by. At least the waitress told us of other places to eat that were much more reasonable... and better food with smaller tubs.

In general, the staff are great-- very friendly and the facility is clean except for our bathroom when we checked in-- I was shocked. Also, there is a plumbing problem in the hotel... Our toilet 'burped' every time it was flushed and we heard gurgling from the shower drain. The tub was immaculate because no one ever uses it.

Note to management: oh wait... I didn't see any.

Room Tip: Choose a room without a tub if available.

Such a pleasure; such an event. Our wedding in May 2013 was such an incredibly happy and relaxing event that we have a hard time making sense of the amazing time we had. Our guests raved about the staff, the Surf Club, the breakfast, the beach, the views. We were thrilled and touched by the kindness of the staff: their caring, good natured help made us feel as though we could have been the King and Queen of the Beach. Oh and the food? Fabulous! We consider ourselves lucky to have been married at the Long Beach Lodge. Would go back in a second... amazing staff, amazing beach. Actually, all around amazing. Thank you.

Room Tip: If you're going, it's worth it to see the beach. Get an ocean front room, especially if you...

Congratulations and best wishes for a long and happy marriage. What an absolutely beautiful wedding. We were all delighted to be able to help make your day so special. Even the weather was wonderful, it could have been a wedding on a beach in Hawaii!
We look forward to welcoming you both back for a anniversary.

We had a wonderful two night stay at Long Beach Lodge. We also had a partial ocean view and we wanted to upgrade! So we moved to an Ocean view suite! Both rooms were beautiful. The Lodge was very accommodating. The staff were very helpful and friendly. My husband accidentally spilled his coffee and we had said I hope this isn't an omen in the way the day would progress. The waitress had the chef make us two special cupcakes. A nice touch.
Continental breakfasts were also included a nice touch. We also ordered off the menu the first day and everything was excellent. We had dinner, and appetizer's in the afternoon the meals were superb! We also had the pleasure of taking a 3 1/2 hour boat cruise Captain Josh was great! We saw harbour seals, at least 20 bald headed eagles in an inlets amazing. We also saw three waterfalls... Unnamed so I named them the 3 sisters! Unfortunately no whales today the ocean was to rough!
The great room is beautiful ....during the day you can lounge or take your book and just relax over a cocktail!
This was our second stay in approx 10 years! I would highly recommend this hotel.

Kathy, thank you for taking the time to review your visit. I am happy you had a great time and enjoyed the food. We have had a lot of positive feedback on our Marine Adventures and on Josh, I hope it doesn't go to his head! Please don't wait ten years to visit with us again.

We won the Facebook prize of three nights plus, plus, plus at LBLR. It is an elegant yet friendly place; the food is very good; the staff are genuine and well training; Captain Josh took us on an incredible boat ride on a fantastically calm ocean (LBLR can't take credit for that surely!) - he is very knowledgable and personable as well as a skilled mariner; the facility is fashionable without being snooty - really west coast. We took our 5 and 7 year old grandchildren and they were made welcome.

Thank you for your review and congratulations on winning the grand prize. I am happy that you were able to bring your grandchildren and that they had a wonderful time too. The Lodge is a great place for families . While we can't take credit for the calm seas, we do think we are somewhat responsible for this fine weather!

Best wishes for a great summer.

We got in on the secret April Fool's Day sale and got a partial ocean view room in the Lodge for an extremely good rate. The Lodge staff were very friendly, accommodating and helpful. I had let them know it was our anniversary and we had a complimentary bottle of wine and card in our room waiting for us. The great room was wonderful, view breathtaking, had a late dinner and watched the sunset. Complimentary breakfast was really good, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal - hit the spot after lots of heavy food. We also went on the wildlife/whale watching charter - the boat was new and very comfortable, our guide was super - so informative and knowledgeable. We will come back.
