Amazing views with good people.
This Valentines long weekend my partner and I got engaged! We stayed in the 24 building with a bunch of close friends and celebrated at the lounge after. Best view of the waves and very friendly staff
Wonderful Christmas Vacation at Black Rock
My entire family decided to celebrate my parents' 80th birthdays by spending Christmas together at Black Rock. There were 14 of us ranging in ages from 11 to 80. The vacation was perfect! The views from our bedrooms were stunning, the staff was warm and inviting, the hotel looked beautiful decked out for Christmas and the Christmas brunch and dinner were delicious and fun. We loved having cocktails in the float lounge, enjoying the rain showers and soaker tubs and breakfasts were a particular favourite. I loved the eggs Benedict! The fact that you can walk out the door and be on The Wild West Coast Trail is fantastic. We walked the trail on Christmas day and my niece (the 11 year old) said it was her favourite Christmas ever. The scenery is absolutely stunning. The staff at Black Rock really are special. They were so friendly and kind and really made sure that all of us were having a good time. The manager was always nearby with a ready smile to ensure our family was well looked after. We felt very pampered and special. Thank you Black Rock for helping us to create a family memory we will always cherish.
Julie at front desk is amazing, friendly and knowledgeable
So, just stayed at BlackRock for a last minute stay while in Tofino on business. Have stayed in the trail view suites many times, and they didn't disappoint. Julie at front desk was great. I wish you had comment cards, I would have given Julie 5 stars alone ! The breakfast, however, really disappointed my husband. He had a traditional breakfast with banger sausages, eggs ( not over easy as he asked for ), and the deep fried cubes of potatoes were really not expected. The server could see that he didn't eat the sausages ( except one bite ) Said they were terrible. Neither of us ate the deep fried cubes of potatoes ( suspect from a frozen bag ). My benny was great, but this, in my opinion, isn't what I'm used to from the Black Rock, and we have been many times. Guessing a new chef ? Will definitely be back to stay, because we love the accommodations, but I hope the chef goes back to "real" pan fried potatoes. Server must have noticed his almost full plate when she picked it up, but didn't seem to care that it was only the eggs that weren't over easy, was all he ate. I'm giving Julie at front desk a 5 star for her service. Thank you Julie !
It’s all about the views
We stayed 6 nights in a Pacific Spirit Suite on the west side of the resort and it did not disappoint. From the moment you walk into the resort the views from the lobby are amazing and they carry on into the bar and the dining room. The room had equally amazing views. The living room has floor to ceiling, wall to wall windows and a nice fireplace and comfortable furniture. The bedroom had a very comfortable bed with windows facing south and west. We came to storm watch and Mother Nature did not disappoint. We had a pair of bald eagles fly by our window everyday and either soar around the cove or sit in the trees outside our window, what a treat. I loved bathroom with the large rain shower and separate soaker tub with beautiful views out over the ocean. The hotel is right on the wild Pacific trail and it’s only a short drive to Pacific Rim for more great hikes and beaches, and Tofino is just a short drive beyond that. We ate all of our breakfasts in the beautiful dining and the food was really delicious and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and they were always quick to refill your coffee and get you anything else you might need. We ate three dinners in the dining room and one in the bar and again they were all good with friendly and attentive staff. There is also a nice little but well equipped kitchenette in the room if you need it. The balcony is quite spacious with small tables and chairs, but this was the only space that I didn’t like in our room. The balconies are shared and for a couple of days of our stay, the guy in the next room sat on the his balcony all day, rain or shine and smoked which you could smell in our room, and when you went out on the balcony he just stared at you but said nothing, even though we said hi, “awkward”. But we loved everything else. Hope to be back soon.
Stunning scenery, brilliant hotel
I’ve been very fortunate to stay at many wonderful hotels in amazing places around the world and this ranks as one of my all time favorites. The hotel looks brand new and I was surprised to know it is about 10 years old. We came here to storm watch in late February and the big, thunderous waves did not disappoint. During our 6 night stay we saw huge Bald Eagles fly past our large windows many times. Amazing. Just outside the doors of the hotel is the Wild Pacific Trail with stunning cliff side and forest views stretching about 2.5 miles north. A quick 5 minute drive to the Lighthouse connects you to the southern most portion of the trail. The rooms offer large gorgeous bathrooms with a rain shower and separate tub and ample counter space. Each room has a large balcony and windows that tilt open so you can hear the crashing waves. Such a great place s to sleep. Rooms also feature a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, plates, utensils, pots, pans, etc. The best restaurants are in Tofino which is about 25 minutes away. The linens, pillows and mattresses are adequate, but not luxurious. Also, the glass windows between the tub and the bed don’t offer great sound proofing. My only complaint during our six night stay. The front desk folks are very friendly and eager to assist. Parking is free and ample! Don’t hesitate - this place is SPECTACULAR!!
