We finished the West Coast Trail early and arrived unannounced at the hotel late on the day. All we wanted was a shower and a warm place to sleep so our expectations were low walking into the Bamfield motel. However the room was great and the bed super comfy. The pub food was fabulous and well priced. Highly recommend this...

The Motel is THE place to stay in Bamfield. I recommend it highly. The rooms are spacious, the kitchenette has everything you'll need and best of all, the staff is super friendly and helpful! The pub fish and chips is surprisingly good, the ambience just right. Whether you have just completed the West Coast Trail, want to spend a few...

We finished the west coast trail and wanted hot showers & warm beds. The motel was a welcome & pleasant haven. Our room was clean and comfy with kitchenette and a bedroom. Seems like the motel is upgrading and a few little conveniences will no doubt be addressed. But staff were so helpful and friendly (we were able to do...

Our two families spent a day and night in Bamfield before heading out in the west coast trail. This is a basic motel made better by the amazing Ron and everyone else who helped us. We had a series of unfortunate car troubles and lost wallets and Ron went out of his way to help us both in the middle...

Located in the hub of Bamfield, at the four way stop, we were in easy walking distance of tHe general store, pub, and restaurants. Our room was newly and tastefully redecorated, with all new accoutrements. Helpful and happy staff, really good fish and chips, easy to recommend.

We Checked in late, the staff was very pleasant, no standard rooms with queen beds left so they gave us a suite, queen bed was like new and very comfortable. Pub was closed but we were starved so they cooked us a quick dish to go. Very accommodating and considerate.

My boyfriend Paul with the CFB USAR team just spent 3 days at this motel and was treated like family by Ron. He said the staff and Ron made him feel welcomed and the fish and chips in the motel pub were amazing! Highly recommends this motel to others and can't wait to go back.

Bamfield is a special place. Not a usual tourist destination so the town and its amenities may not conform to international standards. Ron was an excellent and friendly host. The motel was an excellent choice for two nights to visit our son at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre. Clean, bright & spacious room. Good quality pub food at the motel...
