Excellent location overlooking the harbour - we could watch the float planes take off and lands the fishing boats unloading their catch, the water taxis and assorted other watercraft docking or passing by while either from deck chairs or the hot tub located on the sun deck.

We stayed in suite 3 and had a great time. Large room with hot tub on the balcony, over looking the water and sea planes. Ideally positioned for town with its bars and restaurants. A great find. Easy check in ( in the art gallery ) with two very comfy queen beds.

Everything about the experience was wonderful. We were checked in at a desk in the beautiful Native Art store. We were shown the best beaches, trails and restaurants on a map they provided. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of our suite overlooking the town's harbour. The room was very nicely decorated and appointed and the mattresses were comfortable...

The best time to see Tofino is during the off peak months, and the best place to see it from is the Himwitsa Lodge. Big airy rooms with fantastic views across to Mears Island. Perfect retreat and the staff are close at hand to provide assistance and advice, I can also recommend the Hot Springs!

Very clean and comfortable. Gorgeous fake (electric) fireplace! Lovely view and easy access to the best seafood ever - The Sea Shanty Restaurant - delish! My 9 and 10 year old kids loved the pasta whilst mum and dad indulged in the fresh, local seafood.
