Vancouver Island, het grootste eiland aan de westkust van Noord-Amerika, is een paradijs voor natuurliefhebbers. Bergen, dichte bossen, meren en verlaten zandstranden bepalen hier het landschap. Voor de kust zijn dikwijls walvissen te zien. Wij bieden diverse hotels aan in de diverse plaatsen en gebieden op Vancouver Island die u prima kunt combineren tijdens uw autoreis of rondreis West-Canada.
This is a great hotel with lovely rooms and a good staff with amazing views from most rooms. It lives up to its Relais reputation despite a few misses (room not made up at 3 pm when we returned from explorations--apologies and quick fix followed--and a failure to tell us that they had secured restaurant reservations from us until the restaurant called to see where we were; none of these minor things put a blemish on our visit.) It really was a lovely hotel and we would not hesitate to send our most demanding friends there.
"Location - unbelievable! View from room - wow!"
Location - unbelievable! Views from rooms - wow! At the end of a five hour journey from Vancouver, including nearly two hours on the ferry, along curving and hilly roads, this place is a real treat. Best to get directions in advance, as making the mistake of going down to Wickaninnish Beach is not the right decision! When one gets to the hotel one does wonder a little a bit at the outer facade, which is not exceptional, but it does the job of blending in when seen from the sea and beach. Beach is just 30 seconds walk from the hotel - and what a beach! Wonderful to stroll along, and one can see the odd bald eagle who seems to live in the trees just around the hotel. Get a room with a view, and one can spend quite a bit of time happily looking out - and indeed, apparently, in the winter people come especially just to do that with the storms - I can believe it! The hotel itself trades quite a bit on its location, but the service is good, the rooms excellent - do get one with a balcony if possible, and the food so-so. It's a limited choice, and if you don't want fine dining every night the only alternative is the bar area which is not huge. The Driftwood cafe is really just that - only a cafe, and the alternatives for dining are in Tofino (7 minutes away) or at other resorts (not the same class). Very cheerful staff - and they do put themselves out. Tofino has a lot - about 1.8 million, apparently - visitors each year, and the Wickaninnish is nicely separate from the town. Overall, therefore, quite a place, but it would be good if it could organise the restaurant a bit better to avoid concentrating on fine dining, but subject to that personal perspective this is an A1 place to stay.
"Downplayed exterior - interior & view are superb"
Simple gray wooden buildings block the fantastic view and hide the unique interior. One is welcomed by a professional smiling staff who are relatively well-informed (didn't know about the ferries to Vancouver and how to deal with booked ferries). Great beach, great outdoor seating, great dinner restaurant, great rooms complete with raincoats, binoculars, literature - everything has been thought of. Lots of beautiful woodwork - mirrors, tables, couches, chairs and good local paintings. Some of it is for sale. We went on the Saturday morning hike with Liam - coastal ecologist. The trip was to take 1Â½ hours, but we spent 2 hours with this very knowledgeable and likeable young gentleman. The champagne brunch Sunday was a disappointment. A regular breakfast menu where champagne could be purchased. We had expected something a little more interesting - buffet, music, .... This said, my oatmeal was the best I've ever had. I would certainly recommend this Inn for its location, good homey feel and beautiful decor.
"Bring Your Earplugs"
This is a Relais & Chateaux listed property and that name sounds like it should mean something but it does not. In fact it means nothing as I have been a guest at several listed properties and have found them not up to my standards. Here is the thing- this is a remote location which required two airplanes and a three hour car ride to reach. The reason you go through all that is so you can get away from it all and relax in an upscale place that gives you peace and quiet. This is neither upscale nor quiet. Why it is not upscale: the building has a 1970's vibe. It feels like you are visiting your eccentric old aunt rather than going to say The Ritz Carlton in Montreal. The room we got on the first floor had a very lovely view (we actually saw a bald eagle fly by). However it was rather small with a lot of large clunky furniture. In fact getting into bed required me to squeeze in sideways because a large chair was placed right next to the bed. The bathroom also is on the small side and there is a shower in a tub. The windows have shades that do not prevent the light from coming in. There is no air conditioning in the traditional sense. There is a mobile unit that fans and cools. They did have a little porch with two chairs and also a screen door to the porch which was important as there are quite a few mosquitoes. Nice touches included binoculars and a basket for the kids with goodies like buckets and a little fishing net which was great for letting them explore the tide pools on the beach outside. There is no pool. There is a nice beach with few uncomfortable chairs and no life guard. The water is very cold even in mid summer and the water rough. The housekeeping was average. They forgot to replace all the towels and the tissue box so we had to ask for that. They also failed to vacuum up broken glass that I told them about (a wine glass that I had removed from behind my suitcase and placed across the room was placed back by my suitcase by the staff which resulted in it getting knocked over). Why it is not quiet- there is no soundproofing at all. If you read TripAdvisor you will note that guests have different experiences depending on the room they are assigned. That is not acceptable. The staff know that when they place guests above the kitchen that they will not be able to sleep. They also know that anyone not on the top floor will be listening to the upstairs guests walking, talking and flushing at all hours. We were placed on the first floor and the staff knew it would be loud. For the amount we paid for our room I do not think it acceptable that I had to wear earplugs in order to get any sleep. The guest above me came from a middle eastern nation that has a time zone ten hours ahead of this location. She literally jogged back and forth and moved furniture till after one am every night. Then, in the morning proceeded to have loud phone calls on her porch. I complained to the staff but was not offered a different room. For this reason I can only give two stars. You can not have rooms that are both not upscale and loud and call yourself a resort. The restaurant is nice in that it is a large semi circle of windows overlooking the beach. We communicated our food allergies to the chef prior to our visit and he was very responsive. I know for a fact that he did his best to communicate with his staff so no mistakes would be made. Sadly, even though most things were gluten free my daughter and I were given a non gluten free item in our dessert one night and suffered gastric distress as a result. Other than that the food was very good and the servers very nice. We especially liked Chloe who made sure not a grain of gluten was on our plates for the final dinner. Merci Chloe.
When we decided to make the trip to the west coast, mentioning the Wick was met with a slight gasp from friends and family. You pay a premium price for the view, but there are few views more spectacular that what we had from our balcony (or tub for two, for that matter). You'll want to get away from the hotel and both Tofino and Ucluelet are charming towns with sops, small restaurants and excursions.
