Historical Traveler Reviews Wickaninnish Inn and The Pointe Restaurant Tofino
Excellence, I cannot wait to go back and I will!
The Wickaninish Inn is a wonderful place. The attitude is so calming and the service was exceptional. We adore the place and cannot wait to return. The place is beautiful and very romantic. The view from the rooms and the Pointe were majestic. The food was outstanding. I loved it! My wife and I were there for our honeymoon and we are returning this year for our anniversary. Go to the hot springs and take the sea plane!
Spent Christmas 2003 at this resort. We found it to be excellent overall with fantastic service. All the rooms have a ocean view, there was a storm our first night there which was amazing to watch. The power did go out and wasn't restored in the rooms until sometime later that day however the kitchen had power so the only inconvenience was going down to breakfast with wet hair. The service in the Pointe Restaurant was excellent, however we found the food at the Long Beach Resort was a little better. This could be because the chef at the Pointe was new and maybe he needs a little time to source out the best local ingredients. The stocking filled with goodies that was left on our bed Christmas Eve and the complimentary continental breakfast left outside our door Christmas Day were nice little touches. They also gave us a little parting gift of some handmade truffles when we checked out. If you are looking for a totally relaxing vacation, this is it!
This place is to die for!!! Absolutely fabulous! Excellent location, accomodations, and service!! What more can one ask for!! I highly recommend a Beach Suite in the new building --- the views are exceptional!!
Spectacular and romantic
We dropped in for a room about a month ago, and, while it was a little expensive and we had to wait for housekeeping to finish cleaning the room at 4:30pm, it was superb. The views, room ambience and staff service were excellent. The Pointe restaurant was a little pretentious and expensive but again a spectacular place to watch nature through glass. A honeymooners dream. For people wanting to enjoy a hardy day beachcombing or hiking in the nearby park a few meat and potatoes type dishes on the menu would have been aprapos.
World class resort
The best of the best in every way. A trip to the Wick is a trip to a place you will never forget! Mike and Julie
The Wick lives up to it's billing
I have to admit it, my wife and I are spa addicts. We've been to them for years, at some of the finest resorts in North America, but the Wick's spa really took things a step above the rest. The quality of the facilities, and the knowledge and courtesy of the staff were simply outstanding. I'll be back, and will be scheduling a lot more time in the spa.
The WICKED Wickanninish
The scenery is beautiful and the spa is outstanding BUT... I was disgusted, and appaled at their attitudes. This hotel has rules and regulations that are unjustified. I felt like I was a student with a mean teacher. They are rude and unaccomadating. I will NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone but my enemies.
Take Your Breath Away!!!
My wife and I celebrated our25th anniversary at the 'Wick' January 21-28,2000. We were met at the Tofino airport by 'Wick'owner and valet. Upon entering the inn through massive cedar doors,we were stunned by the view of Pacific Ocean through foyer window.Upon entering our corner premier room (309),we were both speechless. Ocean,waves,rocks,fireplace,glass-shielded balcony,two-person soaker tub w/full ocean view glass,view of secret cove,180 degree glass view!!!! Reasaurant was very cordial w/requests for modifications. On several occasions we had dinner delivered to our room by the chef staff. Breakfast was delivered daily (by request) and was fabulous. With only a few hours notice we were escorted into Tofino to shop,dine,floatplane by Dan or Mike. On two occasions they even went into town and shopped for us! Turn down service with fresh bathrobes,bottled water,and fabulous fruit basket daily was fastidiously done. Absolutely the best lodging experience of our lives!!! Even after three and one-half years. jbl
Horrible Customer Service
We were forced, due to war, to cancel our reservation at the Wick, and they adamantly refused to let us reschdule, and kept our $300 deposit. Totally inappropriate and irresponsible behaviour - which they justified by saying there was no "domestic threat". I would strongly advise against booking with them due to a total lack of sensitivity.
Luxury on the Edge of the Earth
Wow! This place is on the edge of the earth, and it is totally integrated into its environment. Hard to get to, but worth every minute of the trip (which itself is worth it). The premier room in which we stayed had the most gorgeous view I have ever seen, and a bald eagle's nest in plain view to boot. We watched him fish for three straight days. The Ancient Cedars Spa is like none other. A true experience. The Pointe Restaurant left a bit to be desired, but there is adequate fair in nearby Tofino. I am going back to the Wick this year!

Today we left Toronto with our friends Penny & Barry Somerville and Jeanne & Tom Singer, on an 8:00 am Air Canada flight from Toronto to Vancouver. We arrived at Vancouver airport where we had a two hour layover and we had lunch. We then boarded a very short flight to Nanaimo as the flight time was only 22 minutes. We arrived in Nanaimo and …
... more surfers (pretty decent waves, to be fair) before going to Wikkininnish Inn for a sundowner or two. The Inn was apparently named the best resort/hotel in North America, and the view from the restaurant/bar was pretty spectacular - looking right over the bay, great spot. The next morning we had to say goodbye to Tofino and our lovely B&B hosts and make the drive across the island to Nanaimo to catch our ferry back to the mainland. Next stop: ...
... M. Lehman I continued walking along various beaches in this state and wondering what it was all about. Then I think I figured it out. I set out on this Journey to find out what the Meaning of Life is. And that's what I found. The answer is...Being at Peace and in a state of Grace. I know the Law of Attraction works...just like Gravity and the other Natural Laws. The thing is that lately I've been focusing on the Law of Attraction to attract money, love ...
... weather. Brian was kind enough to drive Clare, Mark and I to Mt Washington (a 90 minute drive from Nanaimo and the mountain with the DEEPEST snow base in Canada) for a fantastic day of snow boarding. Mt Washington is a great mountain and we had one of our best days ever on the slopes! The next day we went for a bit of a stroll, toured to ...
