The cabins are a little pricey however we shared among a group of people and enjoyed our time there. An interesting little village set up with some really neat history. The diving was good but comparable to average BC diving (which is great!). I'd go back again.

Four of us seniors spent the night of July 4 at one of the Cabins at Telegraph Cove Resort. Not our first time in the area but our first time spending any time in the cabins. We all were very disappointed. The cabin had not been cleaned, floors were filthy, cobwebs in the corners, dust bunnies under the beds, windowsills...

If you come to this place then your not looking for a comfortable place to stay so don't be surprised if you find the resort quire disorganized (friends that I recommended go there also had a similar experience) The staff quite rude and not very accommodating but who cares this is the best place to stay if you want to...

The owners are commended for preserving historical buildings and explaining the history of the community. What was missing for us was a commitment to maintain the room. The mattress was worn out, the surface of the laminate counter top was chipped away in places and there was black mold on the window frames. A commitment to address these areas would...

Lady from Northern Alberta is tossed into mix with a lady from Japan 15 years her senior. Both loved the day together with all that they saw. Service was rough from the start but good considering that this is a self made tourist facility it is great considering the distance from nowhere and the service that they provide. No problem...

On our way north for a dive trip, we stopped in here for a night. We stayed in the Coffee Shop Suite. Very comfortable and clean. We sat out on the boardwalk in the evening and watched the boats, people and birds. We will return!!!

Up-island (as they say), a former fish canning community in a secluded inlet is now a low-key resort, with the old buildings used as accommodation. It's basic, no frills stuff, but rustic and, if you like that sort of thing, fantasticly atmospheric. You carry your bags along the wooden boardwalk built out over the inlet to your room. If you...

Stayed one night before early departure on 3 day kayak trip. We wanted to be close to Telegraph Cove to ensure no snags to foul up our plans. The room was definitely pricey at $180 a night, but nothing is reasonable in that neck of the woods as they have a very short season and a captive market. Nearby Port...

Tourists don't have much choice in this isolated area so you have to pay up if you want to stay to enjoy the whale or grizzly tours, fishing or scenery. Telegraph Cove resort charges hefty rates but they don't seem to want to please their guests like other resorts do. You have to pay extra for wifi and our cabin...

We stayed in Cabin 12 for our one night stay in Telegraph cove. sitting on the boardwalk overlooking the harbour. The cabins are quirky, the two single beds was a little surprise but not a problem.
