We were touring Canada from England, 9 hotels from Sheratons, Marriotts, Banff Springs to The Outside Inn and this was our favourite. If visiting Ucluelet/Torfino you will need a car wherever you stay! This is easy to find and a little gem, rustic, suits the surroundings and adorable, we were lucky enough to be put in the cedar loft 'love shack' with a great jacuzzi who needs views!! or go outside, walk in the rainforest, on the beach. It was very clean and comfortable with mod cons and ideal to get in the spirit of the island, and very quiet as for washing up didn't give it much thought, not important. If you like something different, appreciate good comfortable accommodation and want to live the Canada dream I highly recommend this and just wish they had them in the lake district, we don't know the owners but they were very friendly and welcoming, just sad only could stay for 2 nights. Ucluelet only 5 mins down the road with good restaurants, Torfino bear watching only 30 mins and a salmon hatchery near by where we also saw bears. We also met the cat we named Mr Tomkins, he is a stray so we were asked not to let him in, very cute. Again a great place to stay, a wooden shack with all mod cons, in such a beautiful area who could moan!
