Cosy friendly guesthouse

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Mar 2017via mobile
Stayed in the cedar room. Decor to a high standard with underfloor heating and a very nice bathroom. Very friendly and helpful hosts. There is a pub serving meals (Jamie's) including breakfast a short walk away and Chesterman Beach (very scenic with surfing) also an easy walk. Tofino is a short drive. There is private parking, tea and coffee making facilities and a separate foyer with seating. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the lovely review. Unfortunately Jamies is no longer but there are other options fairly close that are great!

    This Guesthouse is a very nice place to stay.
    It is very close to the beach and it is very close to the city.
    We stayed in the Cedar room and it was very nice. Everything was well prepared, they even had rain boots and rain coats ready for us.
    Unfortunately we were not so lucky with the weather but there were lots of things to do. Bobbi and Jay recommended us lots of restaurants and things to do during the rainy weather.
    I believe this location must be beautiful in the summer time as well!
    Don't hesitate to book it - you will have a wonderful time here.

    Room tip: If you don't mind not having a TV and kitchen take the Cedar room - it is very cosy!!

    Thanks for the review! Sorry the weather wasn't the best but a good reason to come back for another visit. Perhaps September which is definitely my favourite month of the year.
    Thanks again and glad you enjoyed your stay.

    We stayed in the Cedar room for two nights which is in a annexe attached to the main house. It was spotless and tastefully decorated with lovely touches everywhere. The bathroom was lovely, heaps nicer than many hotels. The house is situated on an inlet and there is a small deck with comfortable chairs you can relax in and take in the incredible view. I could have spent days there easily. I would have no hesitation recommending this lovely place to stay, perfect for a couple. There is a larger room upstairs I believe but we were very happy indeed with our adorable little place. The hosts were very easy to deal with and provided heaps of information on getting there, the area in general and what to do and where to eat as well. Excellent value.

    The Black Bear Guest House is a wonderful place to stay. We had the cedar room which was lovely and clean. It is a really modern space, well laid out, with the bathroom in particular really well done. Bobbi is a really great host and was especially helpful when our whale watching got cancelled. She has a beautiful space outside looking out into the estuary you can use and the place is located only a few minutes drive from Tofino. Would stay again if ever in Tofino.

    A nice and well laid-out one-bedroom suite. We were impressed by the thoughtful details included in the well stocked kitchen, the overall cleanliness of the facility and by how helpful Bobbi and Jay were. Improvements could be made to the Wifi and the quality of the beds but otherwise, we were very satisfied and would come back again in a heartbeat!

    Thanks for the review. Tofino has since gotten Fiber Optic cable and so we have high speed internet.

    We rented both the apartment and the suite located in an annex of the owner's house. Confortable and spacious, located near an ocean's arm in the middle of the forest, very quiet place and kind hosts. The sofa bed in the apartment's lounge is a bit soft otherwise nothing negative. 10 min. drive from Tofino Black Bear guesthouse is a superb accommodation.

    Thanks for the review! We've upgraded and have a top of the line American Leather sofa bed. They are comparable to a proper bed so to ensure absolute guest comfort.
