“Lovely Cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

From the moment we pulled into the driveway and we saw the Cozy Cottage, we knew that we had a winner ! I had booked the Rainforest Room, which turned out to be the best in the house ! My wife and I loved the airy, roomy and bright room, which had windows on 5 sides, since it was built as an Octagon, but missing 3 sides. It also came with an attached ( en-suite ) bath room that had a nice sized tub nestled in the back, with large windows on two sides , with views of the rainforest bordering the Cottage WE never dropped the shades whenever we had our baths !
There was also a free-standing shower, making the Rainforest Suite as luxurious as a 5 star hotel's bedroom/bath ...
On the landing outside our bedroom, they was a cozy corner furnished with nice comfy chairs where we could have our morning coffee/ afternoon tea, all made fresh at the side-buffet that made this B&B such a find !
Duncan , our host cooked up some delicious breakfasts, with the aromas wafting up to our bedroom ....
There were 2 other couples who occupied the other 2 rooms, and breakfast together gave us a chance to exchange travel stories..
Our hosts Robin and Duncan were most gracious and helpful, and we felt at home from the start.
WE definitely recommend Gull Cottage, and, if you want to feel pampered, spend the extra money, and book the Rainforest room !!

Room Tip: look at their website and check out the photos for each room. I picked the Rainforest because of the...

We stayed at Gull Cottage in last July for 2 nights and we particularly appreciated the welcome of Robin and Duncan and the efforts of Robin to speak French. Robin gave us a lot of advice for the visit of Pacific Rim Park and restaurants. Breakfasts prepared by Duncan were varied and very delicious. The room was very comfortable and quiet. The B§B is very near of the Chesterman beach and the Ocean. The day of departure we left our hosts with regret. We recommanded this B§B. Brigitte et Dominique

I stayed at Gull Cottage for three nights in July while travelling with my parents (in their 70's) who were on vacation from the UK, and my teenage daughter. Robin and Duncan were extremely friendly and helpful from the time of booking and throughout our stay. Breakfasts are very tasty and satisfying and a chance to meet other guests and hear recommendations for restaurants and trips. The 'cottage' provides great space for relaxing with a large living room and cozy library come movie room after busy days visiting the beautiful beaches (literally across the road and down a pathway - great for watching the sun set), whale watching and gentle scenic hikes through the rainforest. We had two rooms separated by a shared bathroom which was ideal for a family. We all thoroughly enjoyed meeting Robin, Duncan and their friendly pets while staying in this beautiful part of the world. I recommend Gull Cottage whole heartedly and hope to return.

We stayed here while in Tofino this summer, and we were given a beautiful, large room with a soaker tub and shower. Friendly people, great breakfasts, and some nice touches like several common areas for the guests, a large book, music and movie collection, and about 60 steps from the beach. Lots of opportunity to mingle with the other guests, but also enough space to relax in privacy. It is approximately a 10 minute bikeride from town, but there are several restaurant nearby too for those nights you don't want to wonder far. Not the cheapest option in around, but we would definitely go back for a special occasion, and recommend that you do too!

We enjoyed our stay immensely at Gull Cottage B&B. Our hosts Duncan and Robin were a pleasure and enjoyed our morning chats with them during breakfast. My BF was touched by the bit of French Robin spoke with him as English is not his main language. The location of the B&B is fantastic, just a few steps from the beach. Enjoyed the daily visits by Mulan (one of their two cats), a sweet cuddly cat. We appreciated all their recommendations for Tofino in regards to hiking and restaurants and giving up recommendations when we were off to Vancouver. Will definitely will return in the future and recommend my friends to your great B&B. Many thanks!

My husband and I had been yearning to go to Vancouver Island for some time. We were told by friends in Calgary that Tofino was beautiful. We were not disappointed. Gull cottage was very clean and comfortable. Robin and Duncan were welcoming after our long journey. The breakfasts were awesome. We had our own space to relax and rest in. Cross the road and walk down a short path and you arrive at the Pacific Ocean any time of the night or day...miles and miles of beach...what can I say. The area will take your breath away....rain or shine. Our hosts were very helpful pointing us to restaurants and other iconic attractions. Tofino was a short drive away. We wish we could have stayed longer...and there will be a next time.

Room Tip: All areas of the house were quiet and clean. The room we had faced the back of the house with lots o...

My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous 4-day stay at Gull Cottage along with our friends from Saskatoon in early July. We would definitely recommend this B&B to others, and indeed have already done so. We had the Spruce Room, which is of adequate size and includes a private (personal use only) nice-sized bathroom located immediately adjacent. Our room, and indeed the entire home, is very clean, which was greatly appreciated. Our friends were in the Rainforest Room, which is very spacious and has a large bathroom ensuite. There is one other room for rent, which also includes an ensuite bathroom, although we did not encounter the folks in that room during our stay. Each day kicked off with a wonderful breakfast, prepared jointly by owners Robin and Duncan (Duncan lays claim to being the 'head' chef!). Along with the delightful meal, we all enjoyed the conversation with both Robin and Duncan, and also the company of their two dogs (worked for us; dogs would be kept in a separate room if that was a bother to anyone). Robin and Duncan also gave us some good tips on things to day and places to eat. The B&B location is great; just one row of houses from Chesterman Beach and an easy two-minute walk along a path to get there. As for Tofino and area, let's just say that we found it to be wonderful. We were blessed with four beautiful weather days ... some fog and overcast in the morning followed by full sunshine for the rest of the day. The walking trails are a must; old growth forest that has been preserved for our enjoyment. Of course, don't forget to stop at Cathedral Grove on the way in (about midway between Parksville and Port Alberni). For our full three days in the area, we spent one at each of Tofino, Eucluelet and in the park (including the must-do Long Beach). Each day included one or more hiking trails (all quite easy) and walks along one or more beaches. No problem finding good restaurants; naturally, our major focus was on the fresh seafood. A full five-stars from this vacationer!!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are fine. The Rainforest Room is definitely the 'king' of the rooms (size...
