Reviewed 23 June 2014

We stayed here, on b&b for 5 nights in June. Room 209. A first floor room overlooking the sea at Mackenzie beach, Tofino.
Our 'sea view' balcony room was comfortable and quiet with 2 double beds, flat screen TV, coffee maker, etc, etc.

Breakfast was offered in the hotels' main dining room, a lovely spacious room overlooking the beach and sea. We enjoyed our breakfast here every day and there was plenty of choice on the menu for both carnivores and veggies !

We didn't have our evening meals here as the 'vegetarian' selection was somewhat limited to one or two dishes only. We found an alternative local eatery at Jamie's Brasserie - see separate review.
A number of birds and humming birds also visit the hotels' beautiful gardens and overall we enjoyed staying here. Also, we found that you could buy postcards and affix stamps and send them from the hotel's reception - very useful !

Room Tip: A 'sea view' first floor room (or higher) would be recommended here :o)

We really appreciated the recognition and celebration of Aboriginal culture at Tin Wis last June. We stopped by and had an amazing traditionally cooked salmon dinner as well as learned how to fold with cedar bark strips to make a rose. It was a lot of fun! Thanks for supporting local Aboriginal peoples!

We got married at this hotel 2 years ago and decided to come back for our anniversary. We were welcomed so warmly and were given up upgrade to the same suite that we had on our wedding night! It was such a nice surprise as we really got to enjoy the room's amenities this stay. So, a huge thanks to Donnale and the Best West staff.
There has been many great upgrades since we stayed last and it seems like they are working on even more improvements for this summer. Staff ( cleaning/grounds) were really friendly any time we walked past and were working very hard to maintain the hotel.
We were so happy to be staying here again and our stay was made even better by the generosity of the staff. This is a great place to stay and the beach is unbeatable.

Room Tip: High floors are great for view, and ground level rooms are great for easy beach access!

To get a beach front, sunset facing hotel at this price? Excellent deal. Wandered the sand every sunset. All the rooms face the lawns and sunset, some have a slightly better vantage point of the beach (200-210 = 2nd floor best). There are a couple of trees on the grounds between you and the beach as you can see from their website. There are only paper and plastic cups in the room for beverages, and stir sticks, but having our own fridge was great. Close to everything. Rooms quiet at night. Balconies are large. No DVD player.

The room had a balcony facing the ocean - great location. Very quiet and yet close to town. The restaurant had very good food with a first nation influence. Breakfast was very good but unlike other BW, this BW does not provide a free breakfast - only a 20% discount on your cost of the breakfast. Food was excellent at breakfast as well as dinner.

The resort is beautiful overall. Nice guest rooms, beautiful, oceanfront property, the style of the hotel is very west coast and aboriginal themed which was awesome. The restaurant has great views and good food at a reasonable price for how tasty it is. All rooms are ocean view with a balcony. I miss it already and will always stay here! It is also aboriginal owned and on traditional territory which I was thrilled about being aboriginal myself. (I wasn't aware of that until I checked in.) This is my new favourite hotel/resort in BC!

Every room is ocean front. The beach is beautiful and clean. We walked in the beach every day. The front desk provides free cookies and fruits. They are helpful. It is just outside the pacific rim national park and the downtown tofino. You can do whale watching, surfing, kayaking, and walking in the temperate rainforest,
