During our 1 night stay the main dining room was closed so we headed to the more casual restaurant/pub they had just opened called the Copper Room. The ambiance was very warm and comfortable. The room itself was very well laid out and there was lots of wood and a fireplace that made it feel very warm and cozy. The... More

Great view while enjoying a well prepared breakfast. Eggs Benedict were cooked as requested. The Breakfast Parfait I shared, and next time I will not.

Our dining experience was OK; but underwhelming considering the cost. The staff very friendly and competent. All in all considering the average food experience, the cost and the 50 minute drive we will not be returning anytime soon.

We have wanted to try Sooke Harbour House restaurant for many years and had high expectations. As we did so in November, it was too dark for outside views, but the room was warm and cozy. Three of us had the four course menu for $85 and one had the kids meal. My first course was soup which was delicious... More

My husband and I ate here the night we got married - what amazing food and service! Our server was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, the food was to die for and the wine also. Wow!

This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The room was beautiful with amazing views as well as a soaker hot tub and a great fire place. They go out of their way to make guests feeling at home including the provision of books, games, complimentary cookies and sherry for the guests. It makes for a... More

Retuned to SHH about 25 years after our first visit and were totally underwhelmed given the price you pay to eat here. We had the four course dinner and between the four of us covered all twelve of the choices available. Other reviews adequately describe the feeling of dining at an old age home created by the clientele, decor and... More

We popped in after walking along the nearby spit. We decided to call back later in the evening for dinner. We ate in the bar which felt cozy and welcoming. The good was great, staff were friendly and attentive. We had s very pleasant evening and we have no hesitation in recommending this place

The dining room is lovely and the meals are one of a kind. Totally locally sourced and organic. Creatively imagined and gorgeously served. Waitstaff was highly knowledgeable and professional and dinner was a complete treat. We had the four course set dinner menu with wine pairings for a memorable experience. Treat yourself you won't be sorry.

We had high expectations and were not disappointed. We both selected the 4 course meal with wine pairings. Each course was excellent and beautifully presented. We particularly enjoyed the potato and leek soup, lamb chops, and duck confit. Many of the ingredients are fresh from the restaurant's own garden or locally sourced. The dining room is elegantly West Coast, comfortable... More
