“It's more than just a bed & breakfast!”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

Staying at the Majestic Ocean Bed and Breakfast was one of the highlights of our trip to the island. After a day of fun-filled adventures it's always a treat to have a great place to relax. The whole atmosphere was very relaxing and the facilities were immaculately clean. The room where we stayed was very beautiful and the bed was super comfortable. The food was amazingly delicious. The owners and staff were very friendly and accommodating. In fact, the morning before we left Tracy even gave us the tastiest cookies I've ever had. It really is more than just a bed & breakfast! This is definitely the place to stay if you want a high quality of service at a very good price.

We stayed in the bed and breakfast. The breakfasts are some of the best I have had at any bed & breakfast. Rooms were clean and comfortable. I would recommend it, even if you are not kayaking.

Not a bad thing I can say about my experience at the bed and breakfast or the kayak/equipment rentals! The facilities were immaculate (not to mention beds that were nearly impossible to drag yourself out of in the morning), the gear was all in excellent shape and the breakfast was delicious, DELICIOUS! Tracy and Ted were knowledgable, professional and passionate about kayaking and thier personal insights about the Broken Island Group were invaluable during our 5 day excursion. They even gave me a sheath for a broken tent pole before we headed out AND drove us into town for the bus the moring we were leaving. My only regret is not staying there before we went out. The hotel we stayed at was about $30 more a night and didnt feed you in the moring. This is definitely a place worth returning to! Can't say enough good thing about it or the owers/staff!

Room Tip: We had the Marla Thrisk room. 2 steps from the hottub and a view that is difficult to forget.

Guided 4 day 3 nights kayak trip in Broken Group Islands. MO provided top notch equipment, tents and guide. The food [cooked by our guide] was terrific. The scenery and weather was terrific. We were a group of 6 including our guide.

We stayed one night before and one night after at MO's Uclulet B&B and that was wonderful also.

Rate 5 stars.

The rooms are clean and spacious with a nice view. The hot tub did it's work after a day of hiking or kayaking. The home made breakfast was amazing! Very friendly staff. Air Canada lost our luggage and Tracy was very kind and supportive helping us getting our luggage back! Highly recommended B&B!

We booked a room for one night and enjoyed the B&B immensely. The view outside our room was incredible and nothing is more relaxing after a fine dinner is to hop in the hottub over looking the water. Tracy, the owner, was extremely nice and even shared a breakfast recipe with us. We will return the next time we visit Ucluelet!

We arrived several hours before check-in, but Tracy , the owner, gave us a map and a couple of ideas of what do to, and where to get a bite. We followed her advice, and had a lovely lunch at the Black Rock Resort, and a walk around the lighthouse.
The breakfasts were so large, only one of us managed to finish, and varied (fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, waffles for example).
Our room was beautifully appointed, and thick robes and crocs were provided to step across the lawn to the hot tub. The tub wasn't full of chemicals, the view was lovely, and we watched even got to see a bear at a distance, and a couple of eagles playing tag.
When we checked out, we were given a plate of the most delicious cookies, but being stuffed with breakfast we held off eating those for a couple of hours. It felt like leaving home!
