We were given a gift certificate to try the Sooke harbour house. We were looking forward to this meal and do not regularly spend large amounts on quality restaurants. It was a generous $200 gift,it still cost us another $80. If this wasn't a gift, I would have expected something more wow,how wonderful. Not to say it wasnt lovely just...

We spent a night at this hotel in Sooke, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a hot tub and beautiful view. The room could perhaps do with updating a bit, but I felt it was in keeping with the homely warmth of the place. The staff were friendly and welcoming throughout our stay, striking the...

Sooke Harbour House was a great two night stay for us! We explored the area, such as Avatar Grove Old Growth Trees. So relaxing and quiet returning to our room. Spacious rooms and every room welcomes pets! It's a great old home with a good wine list and good food, and great views!

We booked two nights at the Sooke Harbour House over Christmas and Boxing Day. Although the room was large with great views, and fireplace, it was very tired. We stayed at the hotel 20 years ago, and found it inviting and cosy. Although we had a different room, it seemed as if nothing with the room decor and fixtures had...

This was our first stay and we were very excited but we ended up staying only one night, shortening the length of our stay. We had the best room but were underwhelmed considering the price we paid. The furnishing is supposed to be charming but it is actually just old and hodgepodge. The fireplace didn't work properly and both the...

This was our first time staying at The Sooke Harbour House...We had a very nice and comfortable room.( #25). It was very spacious and the 3rd floor views were incredible. The heated wood floors made it also very cosy and warm on the feet. This room would also be excellent for a family of 3-4 as there was a sofa...

We decided to head up for a weekend getaway. A nice short drive from town and booked 1 night, a couples massage and a 4 course dinner. We were greeted and shown to our room and given a brief history of the property, which is very historic and quite pretty. Well worth reading up on beforehand and appreciating while you...

Having read the mixed reviews here I wasn't sure what to expect for our late November weekend stay, but we were charmed by this property; the rooms, the service, and food quality all added up to a warm, positive first impression. Yes the property is looking dated and the gardens a bit overrun, moss on the roof and siding in...

Sooke Harbour House is a lovely little oceanside hotel on the edge of Sooke BC Vancouver Island. We first visited one night in October 2016 and loved it so much we returned for a three night stay in mid November. Our room was a queen bed overlooking the ocean with a very private outdoor jetted tub. We sat for hours...

Booked a two night stay for 2 adults and 2 kids. We typically stay in hotels and tend to shy away from inns and B&B like places, but we found the room very charming, clean and comfy. We stayed in their family suite which was a loft room with a queen bed and two loft singles which the kids loved....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 sympatheically 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 Spring our fine-dining restaurant is closed every Tuesday and Wednesday. It is open for dinner Thursday to Monday from 5.30pm to 9.00pm. The Copper Room is open daily making Sooke Harbour House a full service resort. ... more   less
