This was a phenomenal place to stay! My husband and I were blown away by the views. Nothing on the website or in any pictures can show how spectacular the vistas are. It was amazing to sit in the outdoor jacuzzi and watch the seals and look for whales. The whole staff was friendly and unobtrusive. We are usually very picky and would recommend this hotel very strongly. It has beautiful spacious rooms that do not even compete with the view outside. All in all, a fantastic experience!

The Whale Cove Inn has to be one of the very best properties we have ever stayed in! Our suite (all of the rooms are suites) was extraordinarily comfortable and had a magnificent view. The service was perfect, as was the excellent buffet breakfast. The onsite Restaurant Beck is a real plus. A wonderful place!

There are some nice furnishings and features to the rooms, but also some short-comings. For example, the 'wine cooler' in our room did not work, so they moved us to another room (a little smaller) and compensated us with a bottle of wine. That was all fine, but why do they use wine coolers in the rooms instead of a little refrigerator (like most hotels do)? Wine coolers are notorious for breaking down within a year, and don't keep things nearly as cool as the little refrigerators. Guests like to keep things other than just wine chilled (like medication or doggy bags from restaurants that one wants to have for lunch the next day). And also a little microwave in the room is pretty much standard now, but none are to be found in any of the rooms here. I will say the bed was very comfortable. We didn't use the 'hot tub' on the balcony, so won't comment. The showers, however, are 'extravagant' with rain shower heads above and body sprays on the side. Personally, though, I don't care for the rain shower heads, as I don't always wash my hair everyday. So I have to use a shower cap instead of my usual towel wrapped around my head to keep my hair dry. My spouse and I both found the body sprays too fine to provide pulsing massage, and instead felt more like little needles, so we didn't use them. Also noted that the outdoor gas fire pits no longer work. Had to flush toilets twice before they emptied. Breakfast was very nice and plentiful. All in all, it feels like the place needs to be better kept up to justify their price tag of several hundred dollars a night.

Spent a wonderful 3 nights here April 2-5/2014 it exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for somewhere to relax and recharge your batteries this is it. The suites are specious and very tastefully decorated. The staff treated us like family and did their best at making us feel at home.
We plan on returning and spending a bit more time here next time. The jetted tub out on our patio was the icing on the cake for us.

From the moment you walk thru the front door......peace, beauty and tranquility. We were so delighted with the Whale Cove Inn. The hotel staff were above and beyond, the room was beautifully appointed and the view was spectacular! So looking forward to staying here again. Absolutely lovely!

We stayed at the Whale Cove Inn on a rainy Saturday night and there is no doubt that the hotel and the view from every room are simply lovely. Reception and restaurant personnel were very friendly and welcoming. There were two flaws that disappointed me, however, given the price of the accommodation. First, while the architecture is clean and sophisticated, the music that is piped into the lobby and restaurant is nothing short of muzak, bland with no character. This immediately detracts from the ambience and left the mood rather flat. Secondly, while our room was clean and spacious and the bed was comfortable, the linens (pillows included) smelled slightly rancid as though they had been washed with kitchen aprons or dish towels. This undermined my estimation of the hotel as fresh linens would be a minimum expectation. This place could be incredible with a little more attention to these details.
