Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely one bedroom apartment with a bath (good for babies) and a superb fully equipped kitchen. Independance to self cater but great to have coffee, milk and pancake mix provided! Made for a great breakfast!! Even though Summerhill Guest house is a few minutes drive away from Tofino, you need your car to go everywhere so it makes no difference. Nice to be close to the beach too though the sandpit in the garden meant we didn't have to far for our daughter to play.
Would recommend to anyone.......
Suggested improvements......duvet instead of blankets.

Clean, comfortable and conveniently located. Stayed here with a friend for a couple of nights and we were happy with the convenience of the location -- easy walk to Chesterman Beach, awesome coffee shop and excellent affordable take out food like Tacofino. The host is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended if you want an affordable option for Tofino.

Lots of privacy and outdoor facilities such as fire pit and BBQ to use. Beautiful landscaping. It was excellent to have a fully functioning kitchen to use. Harold was extremely helpful with tips on activities, restaurants and beaches. Always available when needed. Very friendly and easy to get along with hosts.

Stayed at the Kitchen Garden suite for 3 nights.
The hosts are very hospitable, the kitchen large and very well equipped. The location is very convenient - close enough to Tofino, without being at the center of the noise.
Cons: The beds are small, squeaky, and the mattress uncomfortable - especially the extra bed. The towels and the sheets were quite worn out. There was also bad smell in the entrance porch.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our Guesthouse. I am sorry that your visit was not completely satisfactory as we know how much planning and expectation goes into any vacation. We are surprised that you found the beds small, as they are as advertised: 1 full queen size and a futon (double) bed. The Queen size bed has a hypoallergenic high density 6 inch foam mattress. We usually add an extra foam layer on top of the futon's regular mattress, and I think this is the first complaint we have had. Thank you for letting us know about the squeaking, I will go over the fasteners on the beds and tighten everything up. Linens of course do get worn with use so I will go through our supply. That said, our duvets are brand new on both beds this year, as are most of our sheets. I do wish that something was said during the visit, as I would have been happy to replace what you felt was was worn out with something newer. We renovated our front porch a month before your stay with new windows and cedar siding inside and out. Perhaps the smell of the new cedar was unfamiliar? We will ask our subsequent guests for their options as well. Our aim is to give all of our guests the best experience possible here in Tofino, and we appreciate any feedback that helps us to do that.

We really enjoyed our stay. It's close enough to the town. Nice size room and everything was clean.

We particarly liked the big garden with the campfire place and the bbq that was available.

The people were very friendly and had a couple of nice suggestions for enjoying the area.

It's not a B&B so there is no breakfast, but everything besides bread was available to make something Yourself.

Three of us stayed in the kitchen garden suite over the Thanksgiving weekend. Very comfortable, fully equipped and quiet, and the price was great considering it was a long weekend in Tofino. It's about a 25 min. walk into town, much less by bike, and about half that to Mackenzie Beach. Wildside Grill, surf rentals, basic groceries and a coffee shop are just around the corner on the highway.

We stayed at the Summerhill Guest House late September 2011 and it was excellent. Owners Harold and Melody are very friendly and Harold gave us a lot of good suggestions for exploring Tofino and its surroundings.
The guesthouse itself is very spacious, clean and homey.
They left us some eggs, milk, pancake mix etc in the fridge to get started which we found to be really thoughtful.
Perfect location also, easy driving everywhere.
Don't think twice about this one, go ahead and make a reservation!
