8/10 Very good

small lodge right overlooking Clayoquot Sound
Wonderful small lodge overlooking the water and marina. Popular place with small boats and fishing. Met a fishing party there who were BBQ'ing their catch of the day on the lawn of the lodge. Very cozy and friendly. Guests have access to a common kitchen and the grounds.

Cute place to stay in tofino.
It was a cute little hotel right on the water. The kitchen facilities were fully stocked and we had use of a full size fridge. The rooms did not have air conditioning but had a full sized sliding door that opened on to our patio. The hot tub was great had an amazing view!

Loved the lodge.
We loved the lodge. Such a pretty view from the kitchen and living room. Loved meeting other guests. Such a unique set up. We stayed in a room off the kitchen and loved being so close to the kitchen. The noise was very minimal. We could walk into Tofino. The view of the Claquot Sound was amazing. The gardens were so nicely kept. Loved the hot tub.Would definitely stay there again.

Schöne Lage
Die Lodge liegt sehr schön an einem kleinen Hafen und man hat einen Topausblick auf die Bucht. Das Zimmer war akzeptabel, etwas klein und ohne Kleiderschrank, für 2-3 Tage gut geeignet. Ort und Restaurants sind zu Fuss ereichbar.

Bonne situation mais manque de confort
Très bien situé. La chambre est propre mais le lit mériterait d'être changé. Pas de wi-fi. Idéal pour les pêcheurs.
