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... More

Gorgeous views overlooking the ocean, we knew we made the perfect choice when we pulled up to; the room was perfect for the 2 of us. The price was very reasonable compared to many of the resorts in the area, staff was amazing as well, will definitely recommend. More

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... More

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... More

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!

Great location at the very edge of the peninsula where Tofino sits. Our cabin looked out over where the Pacific met the islands of the west coast of Vancouver Island. Boats of all description, float planes, kayaks, misty sunrises against sunny nearby islands, a beautiful location. Only negative observation was our cabin was tired and needed some renovation.

You would think that for $350 a night the owners would at least provide toilets that flushed and bug mitigation of some sort? But no. We had the view as advertised but could not enjoy it. The room was faded and dated - not in a quaint way. Paper thin walls and neighbour noise negated the waves. Stay somewhere other... More

Kim and Mike E, General Manager at Duffin Cove Resort, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments. We are so sorry that Tofino did not meet your expectations. We certainly would have fixed any toilet issues you may have had if we had been notified. I'm also sorry if you may have run into some bug issues, certainly not the norm for our rooms. We hope your future travels go well. More

Was very happy with our room and the staff helped me as I was travelling alone with 2 children under the age of 2. Was nice to be soo close to town and could walk anywhere we needed to go. Had a wonderful stay and was very happy with all the help I received!!
