We made an internet booking for 5 nights - noting that recent reviews seemed to indicate it was worth a stay. However, as soon as we arrived and saw the room we realised we had made a mistake and didn't even stay one night. The room was just not up to scratch and whilst the view was good, it couldn't make up for the tired decor and lack of facilities - none of my family wanted to stay! Thankfully we managed to find alternative accommodation - of infinitely higher standard and at a cheaper rate. We lost our first night's deposit - but it was worth it to not have to stay here.

Stayed: July 2011, travelled with family

On our four week trip around British Columbia and Alberta we spent three nights in Tofino on Vancouver Island. As we looked for accommodation on fairly short notice (one week in advance) we weren't surprised that pretty much EVERY B&B or hotel was booked.

The Duffin Cove was the only place we could find which had vacancies and having stayed there we now know why. Although I had read the bad comments on Tripadvisor we thouht we'd give it a go and it was SO NOT WORTH IT!

Firstly, the room was in rather poor condition. The furniture was worn and old and there was an awful smell in the room which we couldn't get rid of although we tried. The view is very nice but it certainly doesn't make up for the room. Everything seemed a bit dirty and not well kept at all. It's also important to know that it's NOT a B&B as there is no breakfast available.

The biggest disappointment was the price though. We paid far too much for this room. It was our 8th B&B/Hotel on our trip and never had we paid so much for so little. As a comparison: We had stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel in Vancouver the nights before which is a top-range hotel and at 265 CAD we only paid 80CAD less for the Duffin Cove. The Duffin Cove certainly doesn't deserve RESORT in its name!

This place is a triumph of marketing over quality. It's the most expensive place we've stayed in Canada and also probably the worst - a motel would be better than the garden studio we stayed in. We arrived to find half the blinds missing in the window, with a family in a tent outside so we we were completely overlooked. Th plumbing is very noisy, the bed tiny, the bath is tiny and not marble...
The best I can say is that the owner gave us a generous refund when we said we were not happy. We moved out after one night. We've now found a nicer place in a b&b that is one
third the price.
To try to make this constructive I would say that the following needs improving
-make all double beds queens - our bed was the smallest we've stayed in;
-make sure you have good blinds, or even better, curtains, in all rooms, when guests arrive;
-check rooms to make sure they're ok before guests arrive - ours was not!
-Clean places properly, ours was dirty;
- sort out the noisy plumbing;
- you need hooks for towels etc...

But thank you for the refund, very much appreciated.

A truly great experience for 3 nights, nothing flashy but everything you need and more with the Pacfic Ocean inlets and islands in front of you. And oh so close to town, it's got to be the closest accommodation to main street (2 minutes) that's also on the water. Very friendly and accommodating host/owner. If you have any trouble with stairs ensure you make that known when you book as two of the units have huge stairs to climb down to these, the others are fine. We would return here in a minute.

The room we had was right on the shore. Clean and appeared to be recently renovated. Cozy, with a balcony. bed was great and everything was clean. Quiet location but close to the town...walk to a restaurant. The manager was most helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay there next time. Also they have other types of accommodations, such as cabins which sleep 8, and I think rooms with kitchenettes.
