My friend and I from London were visiting Tofino with a friend from Vancouver who had stayed at the Long beach Lodge before and highly recommended it. We opted for a 2-bed cottage and were so excited about our trip! We weren't disappointed..........
From start to finish the staff made this trip simply wonderful - right down to the fact that they e-mailed a few days before we got there to tell us they were excited about our arrival and to ask in advance if there was anything they could organise for us? Such a lovely touch.............. :-)
The cottage was GORGEOUS, I just couldn't rate it high enough!! From the gorgeous log fire, well equipped kitchen, spacious bedrooms, large bathrooms with over-sized bath and shower and the wonderful array of products (including bergamot bath salts in both bathrooms! A soak in the tub is a must!). Oh and the heated floor in the master bathroom was just fab when padding around in bare feet! The outdoor hot-tub was one of our favourite features although it's a little on the small side - definately fits only 3 comfortably. Perfect for us...........
The great room is beautiful and once again all the staff at breakfast were so helpful and friendly. There is a selection of cereals, fruit, yogurt and breads and pastrys (along with juice and tea or coffee). Everything else is chargeable but reasonably priced.
Our cottage had a large TV and DVD player and the lodge provide a large selection of DVD's and games free of charge. They also happily brought us an iPod docking station and speakers when asked. Nothing was to much of an effort it would seem.
Everything about the Long Beach Lodge was exceptional, I have been raving about it to anyone who'll listen since we got back! Ha ha. My only disappointment was that we never got to meet the manager Perry who we'd heard so much about but every single one of the staff that we met made us feel so welcome, I can't thank them all enough! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I really hope that one day we can come back........ <3
