“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

The great room in the lodge is spectacular, with high vaulted ceilings, big windows overlooking the ocean and fantastic native art everywhere. We had a loft room with a third bed upstairs. The furnishings were nice, with two comfortable chairs, and two plastic chairs out on the small deck, overlooking the view. The room was very hot when we arrived, as the afternoon sun shines right on the large windows, but with the deck door open and the door to the hall propped open a nice cooling breeze came through. The grounds were well-kept and the staff friendly. The food was good, too. I am thinking of booking this for my daughter's wedding.

Room Tip: All rooms face the view. You can't go wrong.

We stayed at the Tsa-Kwa-Luten Lodge cottages over the Labour Day long weekend and had such an amazing time. We had our own hot tub outside and sat in there watching the cruise ships go by at night. What a spectacular view! Our rooms were cozy and clean. The staff came every day to put new chemicals in the hot tub, bring us fresh towels, etc. We ate at the lodge on our last day and the food and service were excellent. I even got to borrow a bicycle for free and tour around for a couple of hours. I hope we come back next year on our annual family vacation as it was so worth it.

Beautiful dining with an active view of local wildlife and sports fishermen in the distance. Went for lunch on two separate occasions and the food was well presented, prompt and delicious. The waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. I recommend the 'beer battered cod' and thethe 'seafood clubhouse'. I opted for the 'caesar salad' instead of fries on both occasions. Delicious!

We didn't stay at this resort but we did come to the dining room for supper one evening. We had transportation on the Island and had checked out the Heriot Bay Inn, April Point Lodge and this place prior, the menu here appeared to be a much better value ... it was.

Very nice restaurant with great patio and view, we did see some mix ups on service at other tables (appys and mains delivered at once) but overall servers were knowlegable and provided attentive service.

Food was very well prepared, fin fish & shell fish were cooked properly and some nice interpertations i.e. the Halibut Carbonaro is excellent. Seafood Linguine had seafood very well represented.

Having eaten at the other two restaurants in past I would rank this number one of the three and certainly would come back.

Lodge lobby and great room are beautiful and very well kept, lots of activities for guests, from appearances I would certainly consider staying here.

Room Tip: Caution driving into the resort, road is rustic and there are deer.

Always love the view of Vancouver Island from this beautiful location and facility, and had dinner there a couple of times before deciding to stay the night. The restaurant is truly wonderful - great food! The hotel and room were a little light on amenities - no eats after 9 p.m. and no television or internet connection, AC, or fridge in the rooms. The sign that said "vending machines" should be taken down, as staff said the machines had been removed. Only one small window in our room but the ceiling fan really helped, and the open balcony door.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view.

Just back from a two night stay at Tsa-Kwa-Luten Lodge. Have stayed here several times before. If you're looking for a scenic spot to relax, this is a great one. An in-room TV would have been nice (especially since the Olympics were on), but I'm sure many visitors are attracted by the lack of TV. Rooms are spacious & clean & views are awesome. Restaurant is top-notch. Staff is courteous & helpful.

We stayed there for two nights. Very friendly service, rooms were clean and comfortably. If you go during cruise ship season, they pass pretty close to the coast, perfect view from the lodge. The is an eagle that rests during the day on a tree outside the lodge. We never stayed at a First Nation's lodge before, I loved it! All the rooms have water views. The food was good. I would stay there again.
