“Rustic Relaxtion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2008

I do not know where to begin except to say that my husband and I loved our stay so much at Middle Beach Lodge, we tried to come back (after booking our stay at another hotel for the second half of the week). Our room wasn't huge but had everything we could need: a very comfy bed, an adorable sink with L'Occitane products, a cute bathroom and a simple porch, facing the forest (quite literally) with two wooden chairs. The decorations in our room and throughout the lodge were rustic and charming. Our favorite spot was in the Great Room, a large but cozy room where guests gather to read, relax and play chess. Every morning a fresh breakfast buffet is served in the Great Room with delicious, piping hot muffins, fresh yogurt, coffee, tea, pastries and cereals. Snacks like muffins and fruit and drinks like coffee and tea are available all day in the Great Room and at 8pm, every night, an assortment of fresh baked cookies are served. Every member of the staff was friendly and helpful. They took care of everything from baking the muffins every morning to recommending ridiculously delicious restaurants. If you're looking to get away, relax and have some quite time to yourself (or with your significant other), I highly recommend Middle Beach Lodge. I wish all hotels could be like this one.

After having read the good critics in tripadvisor for the Middle Beach Lodge, we (4 adults) decided to book a triplex cabine from September 1st to 4th, 2007. What a good choice! The day we arrived it was sunny, and the place was SO BEAUTIFUL. We loved the view and our little cabin (actually a bit small for four adults with 4 suitcases and additional bags. One of us had to sleep on a sofa that could be converted into a bed, but this was fine). We very much enjoyed breakfast in the nice restaurant overlooking the beach. The rainy weather on the next couple of days made Middle Beach Lodge even cosier; we always looked forward to returning "home". I would have loved to stay longer because I hardly had time to enjoy the wonderful lounge, the chimney, the beach,... - now I dream of returning.

A BIG thank you to the team of Middle Beach Lodge!

We stayed in two different units as we booked late and had to be moved after our first night. The first was a room and the second a suite. Included breakfast was fine if you're like us and just want to get going: fruit, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, pastries and cold cereal. We had drinks and dinner there one night and although the food was fine, the best part about that was the view which is the same view you get at breakfast if you're staying in the main lodge. The whole place was relaxing and peaceful with great views. The main lodge is a good place to hang and I looked forward to being there. The whole place is well maintained and the only negative thing I can say was about one of the staffers. When we were waiting to be checked in, I witnessed one of them being curt with a guest who was at the front desk seeking some kind of assistance. The staffer told the person she was too busy to help him. I think she was French. After that I thought that we were in for trouble but was wrong. Everyone else there was very nice.

Spent 2 nights with my wife here last week and it was a total retreat and worth every penny. We had one of the suites and it overlooked the pacific. Felt like I was a million miles from anywhere. Very friendly and relaxed and the shared living area has tea and coffee available always and also games / books etc. Small gym, private beach and they do not serve supper on 2 nights so we ordered in take away pizzza. The meal that we had the night we were there was excellent, wild salmon......

Room was lovely and clean, just what we required at the end of a busy 3 weeks travelling.

Enjoy!!!!

My husband and i loved our stay at this rustic/classic looking resort this month. From start to finish our stay was very relaxed and filled with great food ( loved the breakfast and the dinners).

As a young professional couple we are always looking to find a great weekend getaway that is somewhat up scale to relax and flake out without being in a stuffy atmosphere...we have found that place here! The resort is beautiful without being over done or feeling like we had to dress up.

While the staff at the lodge are really young they were friendly and provided us with great information about the area; best surf shops to rent gear and the best beach for beginners!

The view from our room was fantastic and it was hard to leave the balcony. Our only complaint would be for the breakfast to be held a little longer...we found it hard to make it on time every morning. We will reccomend this place to our friends for sure.

  • Liked — the setting, atmosphere , the location
  • Disliked — breakfast is not held long enough

We (2 couples) stayed in Cottage number 56 (headlands) including a hottub on the balcony. The experience of Tofino itself makes any hotelstay in this area amazing on it's own.
Middle beach has a great/amazing/awesome view of the ocean, incredible. The cottage itself was very good, very clean and well maintained. The railings on the balcony can use an upgrade as did the door to the bathroom. We loved the hottub, it fit's 2 people easily.

Disapointing for us was the included (continental) breakfast. Although all of the baked food are fresh right out of the oven we expected something more the continental with perhaps a more european style breakfast.
Also i could not get internet to work on my laptop from the designated areas. In the cottage there is no internet at all.

Overal our experience was one to never forget and we can recommend this hotel to anyone

The Middle Beach Lodge is situated on its own in a forrest overlooking the pacific ocean. The hotel is a couple of miles outside the town of Tofino where there are numerous restaurants and activities (kayaking, surfing and whale and bear watching). We stayed in the beach lodge which has a fantastic lounge area overlooking the ocean - an excellent breakfast is provided here in the mornings as well as hot chocolate and cookies in the evening. The staff were excellent. The rooms were clean and comfortable although are quite small. There is a lot of wildlife close by so if you are lucky you may get to see a bear close up when walking across the car park.

  • Liked — The staff, views and the cookies
  • Disliked — The bed was a bit small
