We stayed at the Black bear Guesthouse for three nights as part of a longer holiday touring Vancouver Island, and it was by far the highlight of our trip. We concur with what others have said, the accommodation is faultless - lovely clean rooms, fantastic facilities and a view to die for. We stayed in the Black Bear and Inlet rooms. The standard of the facilities was higher than some of the more expensive hotels that we stayed in. The breakfasts are absolutely superb and give a real flavour of Canadian cooking. Bobbie and Jay are wonderful hosts, friendly, helpful and will do anything to make your stay as memorable as possible. A highlight for us was sitting outside around a fire (prepared for us by our hosts) watching the sun go down over the fantastic view. We watched humming birds and bald eagles from the veranda of our room and were even lucky enough to spot a seal swimming in the water just outside. It's a short walk (5mins) from a fantastic beach where you can surf and watch fantastic sunsets. The guesthouse is a short 5 minute drive from Tofino which provides good restaurants, gift shops, art galleries and more spectacular views. However, if you don't fancy driving there are restaurants within walking distance (such as Jamie's Diner which serves good comfort food at reasonable prices). We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would add that it is well worth the car journey (which in itself is spectacular) to get there. We would definitely return.
