We have been coming to Sooke Harbour House for over 15 years -- mostly for relaxing alone-time...and then a few times with our children. For us, it has never lost its singular, magical charm. Amazingly, the appeal and the hospitality grow each year. I've probably stayed in 6 or 7 different rooms over the years, each enchanting in it own... More

Sooke Harbour house is a quite unique place. All rooms are carefully decorated with art and handmade furniture, real fireplace (ready to light up), hot tub and a gorgeous view. We stayed at the Blue Heron room, that had this amazing deck with two stretch chairs. Of course the first thing we did when waking up was to put our... More

The outside of the lodge has lots of pretty wood decor and drift wood art; quite a rustic feel. The lobby is pretty and casual with lots of art work. We received a pleasant and efficient check in, then were shown around before being taken up to our room on the second floor (elevator available). The hallways are beautiful with... More

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here. Reserved a suite (Thunderbird Room). We arrived early and the staff was very gracious about that and worked quickly to get us into our room. A special "Happy Anniversary" treat was in the room waiting for us. Nice touch! First thing we noticed is that there wasn't a television in the room. Then... More

This is a lovely building with interesting art, both inside and out. Check out the amazing driftwood arbor, a work in process. The dining room is very attractive and the food was excellent, if expensive. The views of the water are pleasant from some tables but not all. We were not staying at the hotel and had made a reservation... More

We are staying at this nice resort now- our first night was last night. We went to the restaurant at 7:45 - it was not that busy but only one or two servers. We waited for 5 minutes at the entrance just to be seated. Then we waited for another 10 at least to have someone come to answer questions.... More

Enough time has elapsed since our mid-September stay to try to be objective. The restaurant was as excellent as we'd always heard. It more than met our expectations. The breakfasts delivered to our room were also quite good. However, this is an expensive property whose time has long passed. The good: Our room was quite large, the view lovely. The... More

The Sooke Harbour House Some Pleasant Surprises But Mostly Disappointments The Sooke Harbour House was recommended to us by friends. My husband requested a particular room when he booked at Sooke Harbour House. When we arrived to check in, the issue of our request was not addressed, and we were shown to the Herb Garden room instead. We were both... More

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
