My best friend and I stayed at TBR for two nights on our Vancouver Island trip last week. We were absolutely thrilled with the place. When we arrived, it was 2am and pouring - we had just completed a 3 hour drive from Nanaimo (ferry). We were tired, soaked and feeling a little green after the hippy-dippy mountainous road into Ucluelet.
After locating the envelope with our key inside, we were quick to identify the location of the ramp. Truly, if my friend and I could find the ramp at 2am in the pouring rain I'm pretty sure it isn't "hidden" and I have no idea what was wrong with the people who were complaining about the stairs.
Anyway, our cabin (Morning Mist) was nice and warm - someone had been thoughtful enough to turn on the heater. We weren't privy to the view of the beach until the following morning, but boy was that beautiful! I regret that we were unable to hike down and see the beach. We loved the hottub and watched the sunset from our deck. We did go out and do other nearby hikes (Pacific Rim/Tonquin Park). Also, we hiked from Chesterman beach to Frank's Island at low tide and it was *thee* highlight of our Tofino/Ucluelet visit. We were recommended to go to Matteson's for breakfast the following morning and can recommend it to others - great food!
I loved the resort and its fishing village look - the owners obviously have good taste. I hope I have a chance to return with my husband, and so does my friend! All of our friends were envious of our hottub and view!
I chose this resort for our Ucluelet/Tofino stay because we wanted a cabin with a hottub. The beach and water view were a major bonus, and I wasn't willing to pay Tofino prices. There were a few neighboring resorts or Inns but this one met and exceeded every expectation of mine. I also thoroughly enjoyed Lorne's comments on travel reviews. I like an Innkeeper with a sense of humor and pride of ownership, which he clearly has.
A++++ Don't even hesitate - you won't be disappointed.
