Sooke Harbour House Resort Hotel is located on Southern Vancouver Island overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Olympic Mountains, and has direct beach access to Whiffin Spit on the Juan de Fuca Strait. Our unique 28 rooms feature a selection of fine amenities including spa tubs and steam showers. All of the guest rooms have wood-burning fireplaces and ocean views, with the exception of the very spacious family room which overlooks our garden area. The internationally award-winning fine -dining restaurant serves organic, seasonal, Canadian cuisine, specializing in wild seafood, mushrooms, herbs, and flowers from its organic gardens. We offer meeting facilities, spa services, recreational activities and eco-tourism in pristine wilderness. Whale watching can be enjoyed within walking distance, and on occasion the Orcas swim in front of the hotel! The Sooke Harbour House is a perfect destination for weddings, romantic holidays and an 'any season getaway'. In 2016 all 28 guest rooms were sympathetically renovated with new carpets, beds, luxury linens and 40 inch flat screens with cable tv. In September 2016 we opened our wonderful new Copper Room, featuring a large selection of Island produced craft beers, wines and spirits as well as international favourites. The Copper Room is open from 11:00am to 9:00pm year-round daily, serving a more casual menu of wholesome and hearty foods as an alternative to our fine dining. *** Please note: From 18th October until May 31st our fine-dining restaurant is closed every Tuesday and Wednesday. It is open for dinner Thursday to Monday from 5.30pm to 9.00pm. Throughout the high season the fine dining restaurant is open 7 days a week for dinner. The Copper Room is open daily serving food and beverages making Sooke Harbour House a full service resort.

Stayed there in Sept 2005. Ended up getting a $700/night room for $150. The room was awesome. No TV, balcony overlooking the ocean, hot tub on deck, fireplace loaded with wood & kindling along with the most comfortable King size bed that I have ever slept on. I was asleep in less than 4 minutes and I was not even tired.The room was spotless and the art on the walls was fantastic. I chose to eat only the salad with some bread and it was very good. That is all I needed. I am sorry to see the reviews that it has fallen into disrepair as it was a magnificent place. Actually the nicest place I have ever stayed.

We have been here many times in the past 30 years and have never been disappointed until recently. The grounds have not been tended in a very long time, the whole place is tired looking. The rooms used to be "WOW" but now look very worn, but still comfortable. Please don't get me started on the restaurant.......

We had reserved a table by the window looking across the bay to the ocean. The dining room is fancy with white table cloths, china and silverware. We started by ordering some wine, The "Robin Ridge Gamay from Keremeos, BC" from the Similkameen valley estate. ($75), sells for $21 in the liquor store. We both opted for the 3 course Menu options, ($75 each), my Sweetie had Heirloom Tomato Salad, Brie & Berries w Arugula and Cedar-planked Sockeye Salmon (she says, the best Salmon she's ever tasted)! I had Rabbit Rilette, Venison Medallion and Grilled Lamb Duo. We both enjoyed our artistically presented courses (see pics.) and the good service up to that point. We waited for our server to return and I finally went and asked another waiter for more water. We then waited again for 20 mins. or so (now there are no waiters in sight) until I finally went into the kitchen to ask if we could pay our bill! A bad ending to a great meal.

I really wanted to love this place and there's lots to like - stunning views and location, eco credentials and a lovely working garden with deer wandering through. However we were given a dark room over the kitchen stores with views over the busy car park and an internal courtyard. In-room facilities were limited, with an expensive pay as you go mini bar. Although clean, the room was shabby with a 1980s feel to the decor. The bath was in the middle of the bedroom, so was unusable for a family stay, and the shower room was doorless. An extractor unit directly under our room was extremely noisy. Despite notices warning that guests would be fined for smoking in their rooms, our room smelled very strongly of smoke. A staff member was apologetic but did not offer to move us. We spent as little time as possible in our room as it was such an unpleasant place to be. A family dinner in the Copper Room was also disappointing, with friendly but slow service. My salad was almost inedible - wet leaves doused in vinegary dressing with a couple of teaspoons of cheese and a few overpoweringly acidic strips of pickled pepper and berries. As a result we skipped dessert and chose to eat elsewhere for the rest of our stay. We may just have been unlucky with our particular room and meal, but having stayed in several luxury resorts and hotels (and some budget ones!) over our family break in BC I'm afraid this one is at the bottom of our list and I can't recommend it at all. A real shame.

We just returned from our long awaited trip to Sooke Habour House. What a disappointment. The location is wonderful but that is where the good news ends. We stayed for a Friday and Saturday night and we paid $390.00 per night. There is nothing included for that price. The room overlooked the ocean. The room was “tired” and in need of upgrading. For this price one does not expect large chips out of the bath or rotten door frames in the bathroom. The décor speaks of a bygone time. The shower rod is still a wooden pole and the shower nozzle was new in the 1970s. The staff by and large were pleasant but inexperienced. They had not received the training for giving service commensurate with this pricing. We had reservations for dinner on both nights and had carefully explained when booking that one of us was vegan. The dinning experience was so bad it was ridiculous. The portions were so small it was almost funny except that dinner for two cost $240.00. I noticed that the wine, a very pleasant Allegro from the local Unsworth winery, was charged at $75.00 a bottle. It retails for $25.00. We cancelled our Saturday reservation and found somewhere else. We cannot in good conscience recommend this establishment. When speaking to other guests in the parking lot, and on reviewing other comments online when we got home, we discovered that our experience was not unique. Sooke Habour House is burning its Brand equity to a crisp.
