Having stayed here with my husband many years earlier I was anxiously looking forward to a serene, quiet time with a wonderful dinner. Unfortunately, what was once a low-key relaxing atmosphere has been "improved": by the addition of a tower connecting what were previously two separate buildings and then...what were they thinking??...adding "family" rooms on the third floor....making running children...

We stayed in September 2014, and both my husband I loved the hotel. We kept wondering why the reviews were so mixed, and I wonder if the people who think of it as a "luxury hotel" expect a variation on the Four Seasons. We found it more to be like a luxurious country inn, or an (imaginary) super-wealthy friend's vacation... More

It didn't start out well to begin with, when I visited their website, the website stated that "every one of their rooms had an ocean view and either a deck or patio". So the "Family Room" I booked, once we arrived, did not have either. It was a beautiful room, but I specifically booked it and considering the price I... More

Sooke Harbour House boasts being top of the line accommodation with a price tag to match. Given this reputation, we expected more. The room we had showed obvious signs of wear and tear and the outdoor tub was primitive at best. It seemed as if the photos on the website had been retouched to obfuscate the fact that this hotel...

A friend and I stayed at Sooke Harbour House for a weekend to celebrate a birthday and had an enjoyable time. The lovely inn has been around for a long time garnering an excellent reputation. We came away however, feeling that they are "resting on their laurels" just a little, and some sprucing up should be done. We were staying... More

My husband and I spent our 30th Anniversary at SHH to get away from it all and just focus on us. It was much needed and so worth it. Yes, the rugs in the hallways need upgrading but seeing pieces of artwork not noticed on your first pass, and even second pass, was fun. Halfway through our stay we moved... More

Although the hotel claims 5 stars, the room we stayed in Edible Blossoms was very outdated . Surprisingly, the hotel was not busy and why would reception allocate such a room to a couple that stayed for their anniversary for four nights kept us wondering. But, the friendly staff and outdoor views and fireplace , fresh cookies and port in... More

It was one of the best meals my husband and I can remember having. Our table was at the window, allowing for a wonderful view of the ocean (and a couple of deer nibbling on the lawn). Service was exceptional; warm, gracious and knowledgable (Brian!). While enjoying a delicious glass of white wine, we carefully selected from the menu so... More

My husband and I got married at Sooke Harbour House in 2009. We had an amazing experience. We had talked about going back to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary and I was surprised when my husband told me that he had planned a three-day trip there! He later told me that he had made the reservation almost a full year... More

I have stayed at Sooke Harbour House several times over the last 8 years, and once again recently, so I know the place quite well. This time I noticed two relatively minor changes.....they no longer offer a cooked breakfast, only a continental variety (which is generous and delicious but I would rather have the cooked), and also less variety from...
