The lodge looks nothing from the outside but upon investigation the location is enthralling. It has a modern hot tub to relax in. A communial kitchen is a great place to socialise. Clean and coffer table lad gong.

The hubby has some work to do down here in Tofino and was put up at the swell. It's actually quite cozy. It's not your 'Tofino Resort' type hotel, you can hear the people up above you as if you're sleeping over at a friends house, but that's a good analogy really.. It's got a hot tub, a kitchen you...

We stayed here for 3 nights but unfortunately couldn't stay longer as it was booked out. The view from the communal area was awesome. We had a room off the kitchen which had its own entry. Good location to the town and beaches. Would stay again.

This Internet rental was a lesson for me because I relied on a limited description to select the room and while it was a «room without a view», it ended up being an isolated basement room with a «hint» of humid smell and limited external light. I rolled with my choice and made the best of it, but next time,...

This was a real gem in our estimation. The room was nothing fancy. It was clean and functional. The outstanding thing here is the location and grounds of the property. It is quiet located away from the high activity in Tofino. It is right beside the Tofino Harbour (Armitage Point) pier. Just out the door and down a short street...

WOW! This was one of the nicest places we have EVER stayed in while traveling - PERIOD. It looks deceiving when you drive into an unmarked gravel driveway. BUT wait until you see the view from the deck as you register at the Office. The rooms for sleeping are quaint, and bathrooms spotless. It's the REST of the facilities you...

We stayed at the end of August - yes you could call the place quaint, bohemian, different .... whatever but for the money it was not a great experience! The rooms left much to be desired and in our party we had 2 rooms so this is not just based on one night in one room. On the surface they...

“Forget about the «Chum» room, the humid one with the back entrance in the basement.”

“A room facing the water is a plus and is also close to the hot tub. The rooms have names Sockeye, Coho and Chinook”

“If you really feel that you have to stay here do make sure you get one of the rooms on the front with a view ....... really this is all that the hotel has going for it. Stunning setting overlooking lake.”
