About
Description
The Francis Boutique Inn is a luxurious adult only, five star, multi award winning small hotel. The centrally located property is perched on a hilltop and adorned with beautiful harbour views. The four elegant More and thoughtfully designed ‘hotel-style’ rooms are spacious, modern and clean. All suites also have access to the wonderful outdoor spa hot tub to soak in after a day of walking the trails and beaches. The Francis is also just a short drive away from Tofino, surrounded by Canada’s treasured Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, and just minutes to Vancouver Island’s highest rated Wild Pacific Trail. Come stay and be right at home. TIP: Bring your swim gear: The outdoor modern spa hot tub truly is wonderful; & because we are adult only & have only four suites by design, it is impeccably clean; it has tons of jets, & tucked away under the trees in the back of the property under a gazebo + has a star light displaying on the ceiling. Very relaxing & beautiful at the end of your day! Less

We chose this boutique inn because of its great hosts. (Plus it's a favourite place of mine.) Also cleanliness and quietness, luxury rooms, peaceful views, relaxing hot tub, local friendliness. Brent and Sandra are always ensuring we have fun places to hike, recommending great re

YOU are VIP! #Humbled. It was a joy to host you two for a ‘sister’s getaway’... to recharge and renew! The weather was stunning and perfect tides too, for lots of wave action (the pictures you took were beautiful... you really captured the season in Ukee, Tofino & National Park). We love highlighting all the local insights and making sure lovely memories are created. The Francis is all about being modern, clean and elegant. Life is too short to not do it right and care for all the beautiful little details. Thank you so much for coming back to enjoy our little town. Have a great holiday season and warmest regards Sandra & Brent.

The Francis is a lovely oasis of elegance, located a stones throw from amazing shopping and dining. This boutique has everything you need for a lovely break with so many thoughtful extras I didn’t know I needed until they provided them.

WOW! First THANK YOU for the lovely jam and for the glowing review. It was a true pleasure to hosting you both! So happy you enjoyed every minute with us unplugging and reconnecting in Ucluelet, Tofino & Pacific Rim National Park. We have a huge passion for making your stay spectacular; covering local insights and helpful tips that personalize your stay. We are all about modern, elegant and comfortable; taking care of all the details that make a stay memorable. 'Elegant and personal' is what we do! Can't wait to host you guys when you return next storm watching season. You certainly did it right staying for a week on the West Coast... rain, sun, and crashing waves ... does not get any better in a temperate rain forest. All the best and safe travels home to Alberta. Warmest regards Sandra & Brent.

We stayed four nights in a wonderful room (Suite 3, ground floor) within a four room Inn. Our hosts, Brent and Sandra have obviously put a great deal of effort into creating a wonderful, beautifully decorated accommodation in Ucluelet!

Upon arrival, Brent met with us to show us

Wow! Beyond humbled... such a lovely thoughtful review! You we’re both such gems to host. Staying 4 nights during Storm Watching season is the perfect getaway; one day travel, day two in Ukee, day three in Tofino/Pacific Rim National Park, and day four to just unplug and reconnect. We are so happy you loved all the details we put into The Francis Boutique Inn. Life is too short not to do it right and surround yourself with beautiful things. We want you to feel right at home... warm and comfortable. We are all about modern, clean and elegant (we keep our hotel spotless!). Thanks so much guys. It was a true pleasure and would love to host you next season (perhaps bring friends next time, and they can take Suite next to yours and you can explore the rainy and quiet West Coast... just relaxing, trail walking and making more memories). All the best and warmest regards Sandra & Brent.

Everything about this stay was brilliant. From the moment we booked, we received helpful and welcoming information from Brent and Sandra, who were keen to ensure we made the most of our stay. On arrival Brent and Kim met us and showed us around the apartment. It was superb. Rea

Wow! Thank you so much for the glowing review. It was a true pleasure to host you guys.You we’re both absolutely lovely and made our week (we could have chatted for hours). So nice to hear you enjoyed all our local insights, as we tailor them to each guest to ensure a beautiful experience on the West Coast; Ucluelet, Tofino & Pacific Rim National Park are truly stunning this time of year (don’t want you to miss anything ~ but you are right you need three plus nights in the area as a minimum). We really want The Francis Boutique Inn to be your home away from home. We have spent a lot of time designing and taking care of all the little details... life is too short to not have beautiful things all around you. You nailed it when you said “classy & comfortable” (that is us!). Thanks again and all the best guys... can’t wait to host you next season. Warmest regards Sandra & Brent.

Ucluelet (or Ukee as its lovingly known by its residents) is a super little town! Every amenity you could want, “Barry” even opened the drug store just for us out of hours! It’s a beautiful little fishing town that has adopted surfing (and all things boards & boats) big time, giv

Thank you so much for the glowing review! We’re beyond humbled. You understand everything we’re about when you said these beautifully simple words ‘super comfy, super smart accommodation’. The Francis is all about classy comfy elegance, with all the modern ‘tech’ anyone could need. We even have pure fiber optic lines right to the property for stunning high speed internet and each suite has their own zone too so zero slow downs (some of the fastest speeds in Canada!). Life is too short to not live beautifully and enjoy the best. Please come back guys; it would be our honour to be the first place you returned to twice (full VIP treatment!). Thanks again and glad your journey home to the UK was lovely. Till next time, warmest regards Sandra & Brent.

When is the best time for storm watching?
We were told the month of November. If you contact Sandra at the Francis, she can confirm. She did tell us it the town tourism gets busy because of it so book early.

"all rooms are excellent. We had a ground floor room and they all look out towards the water."
"There are only 4 rooms, but we liked room 1 because it has a front and back door and a sitting area both front and back."
"There are only 4; we stayed in #4. Just a few stairs to climb with luggage. We had a view of the bay from our room and deck."
"we had a room upstairs with a harbour view"
"We were on the second (top) floor which meant no one was walking over our heads."
