“A fine day of kayaking off Vancouver Island”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

The B&B is lovely. The home-cooked food is excellent and they easily accommodated our many allergies.

The one-day kayaking trip is a lot of fun. We had a great guide. The scenery is beautiful. We saw whales, sea lions, seals and eagles. It's a great one-day adventure and the kayaking is not overly difficult.

I traveled with my wife and her parents to the west side of Vancouver Island and decided to stay in Ucluelet instead of Tofino. We got this 2-rooms suite at this B&B and we enjoyed the place a lot. Breakfast is quite large and tasty. It kept us going for many hours every day. Rooms are clean and quiet. Location is nice. We had a great experience. Tracy was very helpful with ideas of things to see and do. Overall, our experience at this B&B was very good. We had no issues at all. I recommend this place if you plan to stay at the west side. We liked better the south east of the island, but not because of the B&B.

Room Tip: There are 3 rooms downstairs and 1 2-room suite upstairs. We stayed at the suite since we traveled w...

My husband and I decided to try ocean kyaking while visiting Vancouver Island. After much searching, we decided on Ucluelet. The reviews for Majestic were excellent and we decided to try them. We made the right decision. Our room had French doors onto the patio. We stepped out and the sea welcomed us. We loved it. The room we had was lovely. Very spacious and comfortable. The bath, over the top. Big white fluffy towels, upscale bath products and separate tub to soak in after a day of kyaking through the broken islands. They also have a hot tub and provide towels in their guest rooms for the tub. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We also did our kyaking trip with Majestic. Very professional. Excellent equipment and guides. It was a magical day.

Room Tip: All the rooms have names. Wish I could remember the name of ours. Facing the doors to the dining r...

My sister and I spent 3 nights and we were very happy!

We both have chemical sensitivities and allergies, so we were delighted that Majestic Ocean uses unscented organic cleaners and laundry products.

The breakfast's were gourment, and the rooms were spotless clean. The view was amazing and we were able to enjoy the hot tub as it was a ozene chemical free hot tub.

We went on the 3 hour beginner's kayak tour, and what fun that was! I am planning to return and enjoy the broken islands kayak tour next time.

The owners, Tracy and Ted, were so friendly and a joy to be around.

We stayed at the Majestic B&B on the night before our 4 day Broken Island trip and the night after returning and we really loved it! Our rooms were very clean and inviting for sleep with beautiful linens and the view was wonderful too. The breakfast was amazing and I can't think of anything that would have made it a better experience other than to plan on returning soon!

After surfing all day our rented wetsuits needed to be hosed down and dried. The owner offered to do this for us even though we didn't rent them from him. The room was very large, pristine, had a great bathroom, a killer view of the sound and the mountain in front, and a hot tub just outside our door at the water's edge which we could hardly wait to use. Abundant and delicious homemade breakfast.

Very welcoming, nice atmosphere and opportunity to meet travelers (kayakers) from all over the world in the comfortable lounge area. Great breakfasts. We had Vickers room, clean & comfortable but cramped. We did harbour kayaking, next time the Broken Islands.
