“Wonderful stay in a comfy place”

We found Majestic B&B while looking for kayak tours (awesome!) and decided to book the stay there as well. We totally enjoyed the great hospitality and yummy breakfast. The hot tub overlooking the inlet is just perfect after a day of hiking & kayaking. We even had guests in the garden over night - some deer preferred the green grass in the garden for dinner.
Great help with finding a whale watching tour as well! When coming back to Canada we will definitely be back to stay at Majestic B&B!!!!

Room Tip: All three rooms are recommendable!

I visited here with my sister and a friend for a night before and after our kayak trip to the Pacific Rim National Park. The room was very nice and the view over the water was stunning, but the best part was the breakfast in the morning. We were served loads of food that included amazing blueberry french toast.

We found the Majestic B&B online. We went Ucluelet to celebrate our birthdays. At the Majestic we got a very nice room with a soaker tub & shower. Nice view of the Inlet and an awesome hot tub. It was nice to relax in the hot tub with a glass of wine in the evening and take in the great view of the Harbour and Inlet. Our hosts were easy going people with a vast knowledge of the area. They made us feel right at home and the breakfasts that we were served were exceptional. We had a very relaxing couple of days where we hiked around the area and explored some back roads. I would recommend the Majestic B&B to anyone and to our Hosts, we will be back. Mark & Sandi

After listening to our teen and I rave about our kayaking trip at Majestic Ocean Kayaking (and being forced to look at some amazing photos over and over!) in Ucluelet BC, my wife expressed a desire to see it for herself. But she does not kayak and has no wish to do so. What to do? No worries, I had seen that Majestic operate their own B&B right at the same facility, so booked a one-day one-night stay for us both, combined with a visit to Victoria the preceding day. On arrival, owners Tracy and Ted greeted me like an old friend, even though they had met me but once. I swear even the resident dogs greeted me like a long-lost buddy of theirs! My wife was immediately impressed by the area, and loved the location of the Majestic B&B, right on the water at the mouth of the harbour. Tracy and Ted have found a small piece of paradise here, as it is incredibly peaceful and tranquil, and yet has lots of interest going on, with various watercraft going up and down, eagles, herons and other birdlife to observe, and a cheerful bustle of activity from the kayaking business next door.
The layout of the Majestic is perfect, with separate rooms and private baths conveniently close to a very warm, comfortable and cosy common area, where we were able to relax and have a cup of tea, watch some TV after our journey, and I was able to catch up with my emails. Later on, we went out for dinner under Tracy and Ted's recommendation, as they know the area intimately (Ted is Ucluelet born and bred and knows everyone!) and also were full of advice for next day, about activities and walks in the area. On our return from dinner, we enjoyed soaking in the hot-tub right on the deck overlooking the water, it was an absolutely beautiful moonlight night, pure magic. And so to bed, as they say - we had chosen to stay in the "Emily Carr' room, as we are fans of her artwork, and it was exactly right, Tracy has great taste in decor and furnishings, very well done and without the fussy, overly-frilly 'tweeness' of many other B&Bs we have stayed at. We had our own bath with a nice big tub, and an exit onto a patio seating area which we did not use, but would be fabulous to sit and watch the world on the water go by. We both slept like logs. Any B&B fan will tell you that the quality of the breakfast can make or break a B&B stay. Well no worries on that score at the Majestic! Tracy and Ted are not only attentive, warm hosts, but great cooks as well, and also pay very close attention to organic, healthy ingredients. There was a beautifully presented selection of help-yourself cold dishes such as cereals, granola, fruit, yogurt, juice etc, plus hot dishes which I believe change daily. When we were there, we were in luck, it was the turn of our favourite, eggs benny! but one of the other 3 guests staying at the time, raved about the French toast, enjoyed on a previous visit. Portions are generous to say the least, and we were glad to walk breakfast off later on a wonderful walk along the Wild Pacific Trail (also on Tracy and Ted's recommendation) with stunning views over the Broken Islands and the ocean. The great thing about the Majestic, is that while they run a thriving kayaking business right next door, non-kayakers like my wife feel totally comfortable and at home, and can enjoy watching the comings-and-goings of the kayakers (which launch right from their own dock and beach area) while enjoying the warmth and comfort of a beautiful home-from-home. We were very sorry to say goodbye. We can't wait to return.

We had two nights at Majestic and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The room was very comfortable, and the location on the harbour was perfect. It was quiet and yet we were able to view all the activity. The service was wonderful and the breakfasts were great. The hot tub at night was very relaxing. We saw a lot of wildlife which was one of our goals, sea lions, bears, bald eagles, deer, and we had a great time whale watching. Saw 9 whales (grey and humpback) including two mother and calf pairs, and a pod of porpoises.We didn't kayak but talked to some of the other guests that did and we mean to return to experience that too. Staying at Majestic enhanced a fabulous vacation. They even gave us cookies when we left.

Majestic Ocean B & B is absolutely superb! It's location on Barkley Sound is stunning. My main floor room was perfect for me, being on my own. It was immaculate, very comfortable, and there were Aveda products provided in the ensuite. There is a hot tub for guests to soak in while they take in the gorgeous views. The guest common area has coffee, tea hot chocolate and cookies available at all times. There is a computer with internet access, and a large screen TV as well as a dining table where breakfast is served.
Ahhh, the breakfast!!!! Fresh fruit, muesli, yogurt, juice plus Tracy's hot dish of the day. I savored an omelette with peppers my first morning, and waffles with organic strawberries my second morning. The day I left, Tracy packed me some home made cookies which was a real treat.
Hosts Ted and Tracy were welcoming and I enjoyed a walk with them in the rain on the West Coast Trail.
I loved Ucluelet, and I loved staying at the Majestic Ocean B & B.
