Absolutely stunning hotel. Beautiful part of the island too. So wild and nature so close to you. Bald eagles perched outside your room close! Restaurant also totally amazing. Overall staff make the place even more special. We loved it.

The Wickaninish has it all on first arriving and we were impressed at first. Amazing setting, beautiful building, great rooms, check in staff was great. Where it fell down was on our first breakfast. Horrible service from a seemingly disinterested server. Took our order and never talked to us again until we wanted to leave. Food brought by unknown kitchen... More

This is our fourth times vacationing to Wickanninish Inn. This place is our second home. We love the calmness and the feel of serenity around us. A great place to just relax and recover from the stress of work.

Amazing experience. Both my husband and I had a couples massage from the spa listening to the ocean waves. A definite must. Tried yoga overlooking the ocean. It was ok but I can be pretty picky about yoga. Restaurant for supper and breakfast was amazing. Of course had some white fish and seafood plates. All excellent. Weather was cold and... More

The beautiful setting of Wickaninnish Inn earned it a place on my list of places to visit years ago, and we finally had a chance to make the trip this past August. We spent the first few nights in a third floor Beach Deluxe Room. At 605 square feet (per the website), the room had ample space to spread out... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, in a lovely room with a fabulous bathroom, and a nice seating area with a gas fire. A turn-down service was provided, according to the waffle, to check and prepare the room for the night. Coming back after dinner the first night, we found one of the two beds had been turned down. That was... More

We spent the weekend in a deluxe room in the beach building (second floor) for my 42nd birthday. We were greeted warmly and quickly when we first pulled up and were asked if we needed our luggage brought in or our car parked. Parking is right there, so we parked ourselves and we didn't have much luggage, so we took... More

One of the worst hotel experiences.... Save yourselves a little money and a HUGE disappointment. For a Relais & Chateau Hotel you would expect a certain level of staff. We arrived and were met by a really unprofessional (but thought she was super) Australian girl with scruffy unkempt hair and a supercilious attitude. We were told that there was no... More

The "Wick" is a wonderful spot - our room was beautifully appointed, with a view over the "secret cove" and the rocks and islands beyond - couldn't imagine a better view. The staff were over-the-top friendly and accommodating. We took the complementary nature walk with Silva, which was extremely informative on the flora and fauna or both the beach and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wickaninnish Inn, a Relais & Chateaux property since 1997, overlooks the Pacific Ocean from a rocky point on Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast, near the eclectic town of Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park. Two contemporary cedar buildings, set against a backdrop of ancient rainforest, boast an extensive local art collection (complemented by the neighbouring wood carving shed), and all rooms and suites offer ocean or beach views, gas fireplace, soaker tub and individual balcony. Uncompromising service, including a Clefs d’Or Concierge team, is a standard. The sole resort on Chesterman Beach, Tofino’s longest at 2.5km/1.5mi, the Inn is home to refined West Coast cuisine at The Pointe Restaurant and naturally-inspired treatments at its intimate Ancient Cedars Spa. Tofino’s McDiarmid family welcomes you to this locally owned, world renowned sanctuary offering Rustic Elegance on Nature’s Edge. ... more   less
