“Excellent stay at the Brimar”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

We absolutely loved staying at the Brimar! The room, the view, and the hosts were amazing! We stayed in the "Loft" room and it was spacious, comfortable, had a comfy four-legged bathtub, and a wood-burning fireplace in the room (with a fresh log in it each day). We loved being able to walk straight onto the beach and watch the tide come in and out from our window. The extra details were nice, like the wine glasses and corkscrew set out on a little table and bathrobes for each of us. The Brimar is a perfect place to have a quiet/relaxing/romantic getaway. The hosts were extremely friendly and very helpful - recommending a perfect hike for the day and great places to eat. I have stayed in other places in Tofino, but I would return to the Brimar for sure!

My boyfriend and I left Vancouver and headed to Tofino to celebrate his birthday. It was our first time to Tofino and our initial experience with storm watching. We rented the Loft, a spectacular room with skylights and a clawfoot tub. Katie and Adam were helpful in guiding us to choice restaurants in town and offering ideas for things to do. We enjoyed our visit to the town and the BriMar. We will be coming again.

We have travelled all over the world and this place is absolutely amazing! If you want a wonderful experience, stay at the BriMar B&B. Adam, Katie and little Ava are the best hosts you could ever imagine. We enjoyed our coffee and wonderful home-made muffins and fruit each morning, while watching the waves come in on the shore. The rooms are Sooooo comfortable. We walked on the beach each morning and enjoyed a variety of weather while we were there. Definitely a world class act!!! The last morning we were there we enjopyed a wonderful breakfast with our hosts. It was sad to leave! We miss our little Ava already....not to mention Adam and Katie as well! Thank you for a wonderful holiday! We will definately be back!! With Love and Best Wishes, Don, Ferne and Pat....and Sharon, who stayed close by!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are well appointed and very comfortable

The bed was great, the breakfasts were great. Adam and Katie provided with a great selection of fresh fruit and baked items every morning in addition to omelettes, scrambled eggs, and keish. The building itself is beautiful. Every corner is tastefully decorated and kept very very clean and neat. The loft is a fantastic place to sleep. GREAT view of the ocean, the sunsets are breathtaking. If you want a romantic place to stay, the Brimar is the ONLY place. Right on the beach, you can hear the ocean, ..... it's fantastic. Did I say that we liked this place? We totally do.

We were very impressed with the level of service that we received. Adam and Katie were available to ask about the local restaurants and beaches, and also left us alone when we wanted to be alone. Adam told us where to go to explore tide pools at low tide (100 yards away from the backyard).

The beach is RIGHT behind the house, and is great. Huge expanse of sand and surf, Chesterman Beach is a fantastic place to walk, run, talk with locals, pet their dogs, look for washed up beach junk, enjoy your coffee to go, .... all sorts of beach type stuff.

We would love to travel to Tofino again, and we would only consider staying at the Brimar. Any place else would probably be disappointing.

Lovely and personal welcome by Adam, Kate and Ava. Tasty home cooked breakfast with excellent coffee. Very comfy, relaxed and gorgeous. Falling asleep with the surf and waking-up with the surf sun rise, sun set and full moon - it doesn't get any better! Off-season especially offers excellent value for the money! Will return for sure at any opportunity. Very gracious and charming hosts.

Room Tip: all rooms with beautiful ocean views

We had a great few days at BriMar. This was a return visit after many years and we were again very satisfied with everything. Our room looked out onto the beach with its wild storm surf. The bed was very comfortable and gave us great sleeps. Adam's breakfasts were ample and delicious, and we appreciated the always ready tea and coffee whenever we desired. The BriMar is in a great location and we alternated our days between the Tofino beaches and the Ucluelet trails. It was a great getaway destination.
