The Tides Inn on Duffin Cove
Ranked #16 of 41 Tofino B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 7, 2009

We had the pleasure of staying at 'Tide's Inn' while showing off our beautiful West Coast to family members from Scotland.

The location on Duffin Cove provides beauty and privacy, and along with the exquisite breakfasts and warm fellowship provided by Val and James, makes this a very special place to stay.
My gluten free diet was provided in a professional and caring manner, a definite bonus for me when away from home.

Town is a mere five minutes walk away.

TIDE'S INN IS A DELIGHT!

Val is a good hostess and we had a very nice room. The weather was poor for our stay and it would have been good if we had been offered a DVD for the evening as there is nothing to do in Tofino at night.
The hot tub is great as is the setting overlooking a beautiful cove.
Small niggles include: breakfast time is very rigid. On holiday one would expect this to fit with guests' requirements not the host's. We had to have a packed breakfast because we went bear watching at 8am. By contrast the served breakfast was lovely and very convivial.
We were lent a park pass for the local beaches which was a good extra service.
Beware having the curtains open to the room as all other guests share the garden. Val leaves a note asking people not to make noise between 11 and 7 but this was ignored by a couple who left at 6am on our first morning and the sound of showers and packing sure does carry.
These are but small points because overall this was a lovely place.

Spent 2 nights here for stormwatching. Location is excellent, walking distance to town, breakfast was excellent. We stayed in the loon room and it was very nice, deep jetted tub with standup shower also. Jacuzzi outside also to enjoy and stairs down to the cove. There are better places to stay though for Stormwatching as it's quite protected inside the cove but it was still beautiful to watch, but i'd definately recommend it for summer months.

We have never stayed in b&b's until this year and were impressed with them all but Tide's Inn was the best by far. The rooms were unbelieveably large and beautifully furnished; the attention to detail was suberb (there were even books and videos for our). The steam shower and the jetted bath were a joy, as was the hot tub. The views from the private decks were magnificant and we could have sat there all day.

What a view! Lovely older home with that "live-in" feeling that makes it so relaxing. Fine food and very friendly Innkeeper. Great location that is close to restaurants, beaches, parks, and all sorts of activities. Great little beach at the bottom of the stairs. Watch bald eagles from the wonderful hot tub. Thanks Val, can't wait to come back!

It felt like home immediately, very warm welcome from Val and she gave us good information about things to do in the neighborhood and even made reservations to go whalewatching. We had a fantastic sea view from our room and it was nice to sit outside on the terrace. We only stayed two nights and we have regret that very much also because of the delicious breakfast Val has served us! Myra&René Roosen

We had a very warm welcome at Val's beautiful home.
The view from our room was great and Val gave us good information about Tofino and surroundings. And.......the breakfast deserves an excellent marking. We stayed only two nights and it spoiled us for the rest of our journey. It is absolutely worth a visit.
