“Lodging on the Pacific Rim”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Located on the outskirts of Tofino, with a prime location - the hotel lawns run down to the beach. First Nations owned and run, very helpful Hotel Manager who arranged for us to have packed breakfasts delivered to our rooms because we were going out early each day. Well appointed rooms and friendly staff. Attractive dining room like a giant conservatory with sea views.

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view, but the view is better from the first floor

The hotel has prime views of cove with large expanse of beach to stroll along. Rooms face the ocean with balconies to enjoy the view. Very clean resort. Staff at reception helpful. Restaurant is also good with reasonable prices. Our intention was to stay for two days however we enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere of the resort coupled with sunny weather so we stayed another day. We would recommend this resort.

Spent two nights here on a Socialshopper voucher ($199 incl. tax and other perks), which ended up representing excellent value. Views were spectacular and rooms were well-appointed. Service was great too. Well done.

Room Tip: Every room has an ocean view.

The front of this hotel was unexciting but when we walked though our beautiful room we found it looked out on the most stunning beach. The resort is owned and run by really friendly and helpful First Nation people and there are outstanding examples of their artistic culture throughout. The dining room also looked over the beach. The food was really good with plentiful seafood and great service.
It was so lovely and there were dozens of people on the beach at sunset enjoying the views.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor room facing the beach

All the rooms face the ocean with access to MacKenzie Beach and great views from the second floor balcony; which make this location a great choice.

the main building which has the reception and restaurant is a 2 storey walk up. The elevator is
in the 3 storey section which is attached with an outside bridge. I can be a long walk if you are on the second floor and you have heavy luggage.

We only had 1 meal at the attached restaurant since we did not find it to our liking.
A disappointment was that breakfast was not included as with most Best Western properties.

Wifi is very slow everywhere around Tofino which was the same for the hotel, so do not expect to be streaming videos.

Outstanding location right on the Beach with unspoilt views to match - the hotel is situated in its own grounds and is well equipped l found my room to be clean and well appointed with balcony over looking the Pacific ocean. The little town of Tofino is just up the road, although getting to this location is quiet a long drive from the ferries etc. Once again all the staff l met could not have been more helpful, the restaurant is very good again overlooking the ocean
