Last year we ate dinner at the Sooke Harbour House for the first time. It was absolutely delicious and one of the most memorable meals of our lives. They serve a four courses tasting menu with everything grown on property or extremely local. Even a simple starter salad was unique, delicious and beautiful. Last year we didn't stay at the... More

Imagine staying on the edge of the ocean, surrounded by the region's best art collection, pampered in specialty rooms like none you have ever seen anywhere in the world, fed the freshest food harvested that day from the gardens and the sea, and treated like royalty by the staff and owners! That is your stay in this unique and truly... More

I had the good fortune of spending a month in British Columbia and western Alberta in June of 1998, and I dream of one day returning to Sooke Harbour House. I stayed in the Thunderbird Room, which was a dream destination for me, a gift from my younger son. The design of the room and the theme of west coast... More

If it's austere desolation you're looking for, try the Best Western down the road. If you want to travel for hours, try Tofino. The Sooke Harbour Hooke is superb, period. It oozes character, style, comfort, ecology, fun, gardens, local art and to top it off, a plug-in for our Leaf! What? No TV?! The horror! Oh, wait. There's super fast... More

Just 20 miles west of Victoria, Sooke Harbour House offers a terrific west coast getaway not-dissimilar to heading for Tofino, except the drive is 40 minutes instead of five plus hours. The hotel itself is worth the trip - a true west coast original, with local and amazing artwork everywhere. Most of the rooms offer either indoor or outdoor hottubs... More

Found a deal that gave a small discount off the nightly rate but also gave enough credit for dinner for 2 in the restaurant. We were welcomed and shown to our room, as well as given a brief description of the amenities. As the hotel was fairly empty, we got the best room in our category - the Emily Carr... More

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
