Best Western Tin Wis

Tofino, Vancouver Island

The hotel

Thanks to the fabulous west coast setting, Best Western Tin Wis offers award-winning accommodation right on the sandy shoreline of Mackenzie Beach. This is one of Vancouver Island's most naturally beautiful stretches of protected coast with whale watching, paddle boarding and surfing all fantastic excuses to get closer to the aquamarine swells of the Pacific. Guest rooms pay homage to both the heritage and the natural surroundings of British Columbia with newly renovated interiors offering both comfort and style with some stunning coastal views to match. Another popular place to simply sit and stare is The Beachfront Bistro which presents a wonderful selection of fresh regional dishes as well as a wine list showcasing BC's finest. After a good day spent strolling through the surf or reclining on the bistro's outdoor patio, there's nothing better than a soak in the hotel's whirlpool tub or quick stretch at the gym to ease you into the evening. Explore a little further afield and you'll find national parks, wild trails and local seafood restaurants with the chance to sample a locally brewed craft beer often providing an ideal accompaniment as the sun sets on yet another day of blissful relaxation.

After being recommended by friends we arrived toma warm welcome, large room - although dated and in need of modernisation. However the beds were comfortable, everything clean, staff friendly, restaurant food fresh and plentiful. This is all about location and if a bit of dated decor puts you off, well ......

The hotel is good location by the water but the rooms need a real upgrade. The noise coming from the next rooms are crazy. Whenever next room flash the toilet or wash their hands or take a shower, you will hear a loud noise which will remain the whole time. I won't stay here again if i have an option.

I would give this place 4.5 out of 5. The location right on the beach with all rooms facing the ocean is what really sets it apart. The rooms are very large, ours had a kitchenette and balcony on the 2nd level. There is an elevator. Everything in the room was fine, not new but very decent. Good comfortable bed, quality coffee maker, wifi etc… Read more
