The Swell Lodge, Tofino, BC presents the traveller with a truly “fishing lodge” experience. This is not a place for pampering spa types that want the west coast experience. No, this caters to the sports person, being it hiking, surfing or, more likely, fishing. The rooms are very clean and comfortable albeit sparsely furnished. A common area upstairs (or in some cases beside) provides a very well stocked kitchen, dining and living room area for meal preparation, etc. You must bring your own here including such things as cream and sugar for coffee and the like. But all else is supplied. Courtesy dictates you clean up after yourself. This does present some noise issues as early risers prepare breakfast, especially for those upstairs rooms adjoining the common area. Outside is a very nice deck area, a hot tub and a lower sitting area around a fire pit. There is a grass area with pleasant garden which lead onto a rather rustic dock where your boat can be moored. The operators, like their guests, are laid back and provide you with a very friendly visit.
Again, not for the trendy spa types looking for the storm swells, but I would not hesitate to encourage you to visit this well priced west coast lodge.
