“Paradise on Vancouver Island”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

We recently ended a 12 day self-guided holiday on Vancouver Island at A Snug Harbour Inn in Ucluelet. We had an unforgettable experience there. Our hosts, Sue and Drew, are outstanding innkeepers. On arrival we were greeted warmly and given a thorough, but very relaxed, introduction to the Inn, it's amenities and opportunities in Ucluelet. We had a wonderful room with an gorgeous bath, comfy bed, relaxing sitting area. Then, we stepped onto the deck. WOW! What a view! What great digs! But, it got better the next morning when Sue served breakfast - double WOW! Great coffee roasted on the Island, freshly made smoothies, daily baked goods and breakfast entree. It was perfect. Though very private, the Inn is located very conveniently and we walked most places. Sue and Drew pointed us to great attractions and we had a good time with the other guests - more than usual in other B&Bs. Everyone enjoyed the Inn and each other. We stayed four nights and would recommend A Snug Harbour Inn to anyone seeking luxurious relaxation provided by warm, genuine and professional innkeepers.
One thing I loved - you know those notices that say "we're green, we won't take your towels unless you place them on the floor/in the tub?" You put towels up to reuse and they take them anyway? Well, the Inn respected my desire to do my small part and paid attention! It may not seem like much, but it shows me that my choice matters! P.S. Sue went the extra mile and did a personal favor for us! Thanks, Sue. :)

Room Tip: If you can, book the Atlantis Suite. What luxury, what a view!

Hello Fellow Travellers
I feel compelled to tell you about the fantastic experience we had at Sue & Drew's B&B..A Snug Harbour Inn...an awesome view indeed. Right from the greeting, it was a positive experience. Sue & Drew greatest us openly and offered to store our bicycles wihout having to ask. Their house is beautiful and the view is spectacular.....of course one of the first things I noticed was this scrumptious looking Lemon Loaf....which i later learned was as tasty as it looked. The bed was very cumfy and we had a great night's sleep. On a side note you must go to Northlands for dinner and say hi to Christa and Livio for me and my sister Paula. Amazing food! The other wonderful thing Sue did for us was offer to wash and dry our bathing suits so they would be all fresh for our trip to the Hot Springs Cove. Another spectacular experience. Sue's breakfasts are yummy and filling and a great opportunity to talk to fellow travellers. We would definitely stay with Sue & Drew again. Thanks for making our vacation a memorable experience!

Everything from the fabulous hospitality to the "awesome" view made our five days at Snug Harbour Inn one we will both remember. We were in the Lighthouse room and enjoyed a great view, private balcony, and lots of attention to detail. The breakfasts each morning were superb and hearty enough that we didn't need much lunch, if any. The trails and other amenities were close by so we were able to enjoy the area without jumping in the car every time we wanted to go out. We would whole heartily recommend this Inn to anyone who wanted a luxury getaway to relax or explore.

Everything about this B&B exceeded our expectations! Besides the fabulous view of the ocean from our private deck (and even from our bed), our room was very comfortable, everything was spotless, and Sue's hospitality, delicious breakfasts, and recommendations for meals and activities, were great. We are looking forward to staying here again.

Room Tip: The Valhalla suite was lovely!

Two night stay that was above & beyond. First of all Sue honoured a FOUR year old credit we had there when we were forced to cancel! She is really a wonderful hostess, cook and source of information. The Inn grabs you immediately with the sense of rest & relaxation combined with the awesome view. Totally recommend Snug Harbour!

Been out to Snug Harbour four times now and I get more excited each time I go. It's a perfect balance between some luxury yet the rooms are very intimate as well. We have a small dog and the rooms beside the forest that are pet friendly are perfect for him. Huge king size bed and we all snuggle up, open the windows and just listen to nature. Very very relaxing. Sue is an expert on where to go and what to do in Ucluelet. I don't think I ever asked her a question without getting a detailed answer about the community with multiple options. She cooks amazing breakfast as well. It's also very very close to everything in Ucluelet. The view from the back deck is spectacular as well. Vancouver Island at its best.

We booked our 2 night stay here rather than a hotel suggested by our holiday arrangers. It was the best move we could have made. The Inn,as everyone else says, is in a peaceful part of Ucluelet and has everything you would need to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.Since we booked very late, we had a room away from the main house. This did not detract from our enjoyment one bit. The room had every possible comfort including a jacuzzi
bath,a fireplace and the bathroom itself had a wonderful walk in shower,the only one we had during our whole holiday
Sue was the perfect host making wonderful cooked breakfasts and a delicious cake each day for the guests to help themselves to.She was also ready to recommend places to eat and to make reservations for us.
Would we recommend the Snug Harbour Inn-most definitely!

Room Tip: a room with a view of the ocean would be ideal but the 2 rooms outside are perfectly acceptable
