My wife and I can but endorse all the previous glowing reviews ! A last minute booking for two nights which turned into three nights because we were so taken with both The Francis and the town of Ucluelet and its beautiful setting. The interior design of the apartment was very tasteful, complemented by beautifully clean and comfortable bedding, white...

Just bopping around Vancouver Island and chose The Francis just because I was in the area. But really glad I did. The room was plenty big, and contemporary. And the village and a number of restaurants were an easy walk. Ditto regarding the owners' helpful tips on what-to-dos!

I was searching for an accomodation for summer 2017. When The Francis contacted me, I had found already some place to stay. Nevertheless, the friendly staff was anyways supporting me with tips what to do in the surroundings. That was extremely helpful and very kind, given that I had already booked at a different place, they would not have had...

Sandra and Brent are absolute gems! Communication was friendly and fastidious, plus their insider's knowledge of the area is a priceless factor in helping visitors to maximize the raw and powerful beauty of BC. They generously share their pearls of wisdom, including hikes that are off the tourist grid. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we had to cancel our reservation...

Thank you so much!

From the clear and thoughtful communication and instructions to the beautifully appointed room, The Francis added to the amazing time we spent in Ucluelet. I have been fortunate to travel to many places around the world and Ucluelet is as beautiful as anywhere I've been. Add in the comfortable and luxurious stay in a King suite at The Francis and...

we stayed here because the owners also own the kayak touring company next store. The owners made our stay very enjoyable and gave us great ideas of things to do.

My husband, son and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this bed and breakfast. We stayed in the Marla Thirsk room that had one queen and one double bed.

We spent 3 nights at the Majestic Ocean B & B while we enjoyed Pacific Rim National Park. We prefer staying in Ucluelet over Tofino which has become very touristy and more expensive over the years. We like the small town feel of Ukey where the shops and restaurants aren’t always packed with tourists in mid summer. We stayed in...
