We treated ourselves to a long weekend and had a room perched over surf crashing onto the rocks below. Spectacular! The rooms are luxe yet not pretentious. Service is friendly and discrete. Our big surprise was the restaurant. Every bite ...of everything...was sublime.
We'll certainly make time to return for some R & R. Beautiful setting, perfect rooms, lovely experience all around.

My wife and I have now been to the Wick' Inn in Tofino a few times. If you want brilliant service and location, a world class restaurant and local scenery to die for, then you will hard pushed to find better.If you can stay in the Canopy Suite. It's not huge, but the view you wake up to is staggering and captivating and the bathroom is glorious and earthy.

Room Tip: The Canopy Suite if you can, but make sure you have a Pacific ocean view.

The natural geographic setting of this hotel, especially on a (rare) sunny day is extraordinary...but can be appreciated less expensively at many inns that now dot the Long Beach coastline, some places cheek-to-jowl. It's nice, but nicer can be had less expensively. Not so the restaurant--perched over the pounding surf or the usually angry North Pacific, it is one of the top 5 most spectacular restaurant settings in the world. The food's not quite that good--but close.

We spent two night in a room in the pointe building. The service from when we pulled up in the driveway was exceptional. The staff knew us by name-we were very impressed! Our room was spacious and had a magnificent view overlooking the ocean. The bathroom was a great size and had a beautiful double bath with a view to die for. I treated myself to a massage at the spa, and it was heaven. We ate dinner one night at the Pointe Restaurant, and it was lovely, although pricey. We were made to feel very special! One thing that spoilt our stay was the fact that they took a $1500 authorisation on our credit card upon check in without our knowledge that the amount was that excessive. I understand that most hotels will take an authorisation-but seriously-that much?!?!?!? I also feel that, for the price of the rooms that breakfast should be included in the tariff. Otherwise, our stay was wonderful!

A short note for newlyweds: we did not get any particularly special treatment on our honeymoon at the Wick. This did not bother us until we returned home and friends and family asked what the Wick did for honeymooners, it seems most people would expect some gesture, and we had to admit that we didn't get anything. The hotel is fabulous and the perfect spot to honeymoon, perhaps it is that everyone goes there to celebrate so everyone is sort of equally special. However, at $600 per night in high season I guess other hotels of that caliber would have had a bottle of champagne or flowers or something.
That being said, I wouldn't change anything else, the room was heaven, we ate 3 delicious meals a day at the Driftwood lounge or Pointe restaurant, the location is brilliant, and the two seater tubs with window overlooking the ocean is priceless. I hope we can go back to celebrate our anniversary next year!

Room Tip: Definitely splurge on a top floor of the Point building, worth every penny!

Dear schoggigirl,
Thank you for posting a Review of your recent stay at our Inn on Trip Advisor and sharing your experience with our online community.
While we are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and dining at both The Pointe Restaurant and the Driftwood Café each day, please accept our most sincere apology that we felt short in recognizing that you were on staying with us for your honeymoon. It is our standard to inquire during the reservation process whether the guest will be celebrating any special occasion during their stay and apologize if this did not happen in your case. Our goal is to create a magical and memorable stay for each and every guest of the Inn and while we did not recognize you as newlyweds, we certainly hope that we accomplished this goal for you.
On behalf of Charles McDiarmid and our entire Wickaninnish Inn team we thank you for your Review and certainly hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Wickaninnish Inn and The Pointe Restaurant for future Anniversaries!
Sandy Stocker

This is the most beautiful hotel in the world. Go there during the storm season for a hike along the coast, great surf, spa treatments and great food. It's seriously cold and wet but that makes the fire place and whiskey even better

We have stayed here 4 times, twice with our small dog. The accommodations are cozy and comfortable and beautifully in keeping with the West Coast theme. Being located in a pacific rainforest, on arguably one of the most beautiful beaches on the West Coast, the ambiance and attention to detail from all the staff makes for a relaxing experience. We have stayed both in the Pointe and the Beach rooms. Both are lovely. The Pointe building is closer to the water and contains the restaurant and spa so in storm season, you would not have to venture outside if you chose not to! The Beach rooms are quite a bit bigger and still have a wonderful beach view. I imagine there are no bad rooms here! Linens and towels very high quality - beautiful soaker tub overlooking the beach in 302 where we stayed this time. Our relatives claim that 309 has the best view - lots of light and windows (the Pointe). The spa treatments are all top-notch - opt for the Cedar hut overlooking the beach for a spectacular couples massage. You can even do a yoga class. The amenities for your dog include a kennel, comfy bed, treats, a ball-chucker, bowls & even dog-sitting services at a very friendly rate. The staff go out of their way to make your stay everything one could expect of a 5 star property. As returning guests, we were greeted with a lovely fruit tray and welcome note. If you want to spurge on a romantic get-away or just escape to a tranquil place and walk for miles on a pristine beach, watching the waves and surfers roll in - this is THE place! Check out the Pointe Restaurant review separately.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Beach building are quite a bit bigger but not quite as close to the rocks. We stayed at...
