Our two day stay here was wonderful. From the time we checked in until the time we left, each staff member was friendly, and inviting. The corner room we had in the pointe section was wonderful. We could not get enough of the view even though the weather was rainy and foggy. But this made our stay even more magical.... More

In May of 2014 I booked 2 rooms at the Wick for my family and parents. One room was a West facing room in the Pointe building and the other was the Chesterman Beach Loft. We stayed for 3 fantastic nights. From the moment we arrived we felt pampered. The attention to detail by the staff and management was excellent.... More

Stunning views, impeccable rooms and property! Came in for one night on a tour of Vancouver Island, wish I could stay another week. Heated floors in the bathroom were a nice touch. Watching the surfers was a fun treat!

I recently stayed at the Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino, B.C. I love the location and the staff are friendly and accomodating. There are two buildings there, the main building and the Beach Front, both are good the Beach Front being the quieter of the two. The Pointe restaurant serves a pricey but incredible meal. One negative comment I have regards... More

There are great places to stay in Tofino, I'll be honest, but The Wick is probably the most scenic. They have hotel gold with their commanding location on the rock point at Chesterman Beach. Once you check in, you almost don't want to go anywhere for nearly a day. The bedding is on par with a Four Seasons. And the... More

Firstly just amazing location and facilities but let down by staff who seem very frightened to make a decision in many areas and to be fair some were amazing. BUT I was somewhat annoyed to find I had $900 removed from the credit card they requested for "security reasons only" without explanation or request. We constantly found them trying to... More

We arrived the 5th of September for 6 days! Part of our honeymoon adventure. Everything was perfect, this a place to come and be quiet, relax, read, hike, watch the ocean from your room, your bed, the balcony, the beach. We enjoyed every minute. The quiet luxury of having that view from your room is decadent. Wake and fall asleep... More

The Wick is a beautiful hotel in a stunning location. The room was huge and overlooked the ocean. Lovely features included a balcony, a cosy lounge area with fireplace ,a large bathroom with an enormous bath and possibly the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in.

We drove from Victoria and could not have been more delighted with the location of this hotel or our room; a deluxe room on the ground floor of "The Beach".

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
