You’ll be enveloped in beauty and luxury at this stunning hotel on the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island. After a beautiful drive past mountains, lakes, and old forests, you’ll be warmly welcomed by friendly staff, and check into a spacious room or suite with a gas fireplace, high-speed Wi-Fi, stocked private bars, and thoughtful extras like rain jackets, binoculars, and terry robes. Kitchens are available in certain rooms, and you can book a connecting room if your family needs extra space.
Inquire about babysitting so you can head to the Ancient Cedars spa for a luxurious hot stone massage, an hour in the steam room, or signature treatment, then follow it up with a delicious culinary experience at The Pointe Restaurant or drinks at Driftwood Lounge.
A day out with the family in this area can mean whale watching, sea kayaking, nature walks, surfing, and other activities that put you in touch with the grandeur of the Pacific wilderness. At night, you’ll be lulled to sleep by the waves crashing against the rocks outside the hotel. The Wickaninnish Inn is a rustic-chic piece of paradise that will make you miss it as soon as you leave.

My only regret was not being there longer. Service was great, super friendly staff, very accommodating, and what a view!
Highly recommend the cellar room in the basement if you can. We went on a fishing trip and wasn’t expecting the weather, no need to worry they had heavy duty rain gear, water bottles etc. Truly a great experience!

It was a chunk of change... and worth every single penny. The entire staff was friendly and helpful, the room was spacious and cozy, the views are simply ridiculous. Every detail mets or exceeded our expectations. It's not just a hotel. It's an experience you won't forget!
