It was a dark and stormy (not really) night ,and not a creature was stirring .... it was 11:10 pm and the Serenity was alarming 🚨 for city 🌃 folk... don't worry we are an adaptable breed. Yep no car 🚗 alarms 🚨 no sirens and even the fish were respectfully silent.Lucy (the Frenchy Supreme) approved of the accommodations especially...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Duffin Cove over the weekend in a one bed room suite with ocean view. The room was very clean and comfortable, with new furnishing (They are in the middle of renovations) The location was great, in town, close to all restaurants and shops, but nestled in a quiet, private bay with a beautiful view (lucked...

Booked an ocean front room through booking.com and got an ocean view room as currently remodeling. Only view when standing at the television, which was 15 degrees of center and volume stuck. Bedroom nice new Matress but frame exterior and extremely dangerous causing actual injury and bleeding. Bathroom upper window clear, no curtain. Able to view person in shower from...

Hello Marcus - thank you for your feedback. We are terribly sorry that you were disappointed with our remodel. This is certainly not the feedback we are normally hearing these days. We feel that we could have addressed some of these issues, had we been notified while you were here. I know you had previously stayed in an Ocean front...

Service was friendly, efficient and our 1 bedroom suite was very comfortable. Nice view and even better down the beach access. Enjoyed the sunset at the private beach the evening we arrived. The downtown Tofino location is what were looking for...and we accomplished that and much more.

New owners have work cut out to make this live up to potential. Worn out only words that come to mind. ... but clean Location is good access to small beach will no doubt be safe by next season. Eccentric layouts worn out in every sense as replacement of some items will be a challenge. Won't ever be my first...

We visited Tofino for just a couple nights, and I think we ended up in a pretty great place. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite, which suited us nicely. The cabins looked pretty great, but there is a lot of stairs to get to the cabins and we a babies and luggage to deal with with. The room we...

I read all the reviews before I booked this hotel...I was slightly worried, but we only really sleep in our room, I wasn't worried about the "dated decor" and those reviews were old, so I took the chance. I'm happy we stayed here. We arrived a little early, but were able to check in immediately, which was nice. The front...

The cabins are in a fantastic spot - the views are to die for! We stayed in one of the A Frame cabins ( family of 5) . Yes some of the decor is a bit dated - but the position of the cabins is outstanding - would love to comeback again!
