There you don't get any reception on phone. the washrooms were really dirty: black mold on the shower curtains and lavabo. on the floor were gobs of hair...

As a destination resort, be aware of its limitations so that you can be prepared. It can offer you something one-of-a-kind - but don't expect too much of the accommodations. It takes a long time to get there, it is off the beaten path. Once you are there, you are either reliant on their services or on yourself. For example,...

What a surprise when you drive from Port Hardy and discover this true pioneer village on the warf! It's a real travel to the past. The walk trough the authentic village is very interesting! Even if the room (number 11a) is very spacious and fully equipped, it's a little bit old fashion...Fortunately, the view is priceless! The whale watching (Stubbs...

We booked two nights at TC and knew that we had to book a different room each night as it was so full (the move was well handled by housekeeping). We got there on a Saturday, at a time much earlier than anticipated. We had a whale your booked for the Sunday afternoon. We were unable to check in until...

Had a good time! Stayed in 11a, a spacious cabin with harbour view. You need to stay here and go on a tour with Stubb's, seen many whales, orca's and sea lions etcetc. Was hard to open the window, but the view was nice. Saw bald eagles right in front of the window. The bed was not that good, seemed...

We had booked for 2 nights in a cabin. We were allocated cabin 2 which was out of the main village up a steep hill. The first sight of the cabin was depressing and accessed by a muddy path. The inside was 1960's style motel and was not clean. Dog hairs and dirt on the rug and furniture. We returned...

Whilst the accommodation is basic and lumpy from a pricing perspective, it's THE place to see whales. Over the last couple of days have seen humpbacks, killers, dalls porpoises, bald eagles, sealions, seals n black bear on the boardwalk daily. AMAZING!
