We stayed at this lovely B&B in August. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating and the trail to the beach was just beautiful. We really didn't expect the beach to open up and be as big as it was. We took a day trip to Botanical Beach and enjoyed the scenery immensely. The breakfast's were well thought out and... More

Thank you for the gift of this review. Even though we have little to do with how wonderful the beach is, except for maintaining the trail on our property to get there, we love knowing that our guests enjoyed it. It may be one of the first wilderness beaches on the trip out from Victoria. We were very pleased to... More

Nice place; bed and room and bath very nice. Loved the touch of high powered binoculars in the bedroom to be able to look out into the straits and shore of Washington. Breakfasts tasty and a bit offbeat. Nice hike down to the beach. Area is a bit remote, so come here for relaxing. A few nice restaurants in town;... More

Thank you, Bob, for the gift of this review.

We spent a week at this wonderful Inn! The highlight was the delicious breakfasts each morning. I travelled with my mother law and her gluten free diet was accommodated with expertise and a major yum factor. Location was peaceful, and serene with great views. I loved the hot tubs with a view of both wilderness and ocean. Beds were made... More

We have been back twice now, the second time as part of an impromptu family trip using 3 different rooms. We arrived early and were allowed to check in without any problems. The rooms were clean and bright, we were a bit "rowdy" at night (the family who laughs together ... ) but we were directed to a games room... More

My wife and I have returned to Ocean Wilderness Inn three or four times . We have always been made to feel welcome and special by the wonderful owner/ hosts. The fact that the rooms did not have phones or televisions, for us, was a wonderful benefit as it is for those of all ages that love natural surroundings and... More

I lived this hotel with my fiance in the winter. It is quite and has nice surroundings. There is a way easily accessing the sea shore. The only inconvenience is that the hotel is a bit far from the cities. The owner is a couple and they are very nice.

Thank you for the gift of this review Winter is a lovely time to visit. I am glad you enjoyed the surroundings and the shore. We are a bit out of town, as you say. We think that our location, about 14km beyond Sooke, may be part of the reason guests are able to unplug and relax. Just for perspective,... More

we were quite disappointed with our stay, but we could see how it might be suitable for a different type of traveler. (i.e. relaxed older crowd who go to sleep early!). i wouldn't recommend it to young travelers or young couples. i found the breakfast disappointing and the room bare bones. we felt it cost way too much for what...

Thank you for the gift of this review. I regret that you were disappointed with your stay. We agree that we are not for everyone. Our younger guests sometimes tell us “our parents would love this place”. However, and just as often, our older guests buy a gift certificate for their “kids” to come and stay with us. Regardless of... More

Only stayed here one night but would have loved to have stayed longer. The owners were welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. We stayed in the Pacific Panorama room, which was large, had a comfy bed and comfy chairs for sitting in to look out the big windows to the ocean. It was tastefully furnished. There is an outside hot... More

The surrounding is wonderful. The hot tub is refreshing. The owner provided very good breakfast and tips for travelling around sooke. I spent two nights in the Ocean Wilderness Inn and I have a memorable experience with my boyfriend here. There is a little trial in front of the house down the beach.

Thank you for the gift of this review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed our trail to the beach. We think the private access to the ocean is one of our best assets. There are no signs of buildings or roads or powerlines at the shore. The sky and sea are always changing. Safe travels, Lori More
