“Salty Towers or "Fawlty Towers"?”
Reviewed 22 August 2010

The hotel is in a good location and the room was nice. Breakfast was provided. Unfortunately the owners were not pleasant, the room was not made up after the first night, the sheets not changed, the towels not changed, even the coffee cups not washed and no new coffee provided. The first contact with the owners was to have full payment in advance demanded.
This despoite having booked well in advance and secured the room.
Overall a disappointing experience.

Really nice owners (Maggie and Neil, and Salty the Dog), helpful and informative. Great breakfasts, served at 9 am in suite/cottage, though accommodations are made when you want breakast earlier like my husband and me. We stayed in the Harbour Suite, a very comfortable and inviting room. )Great bed, too -- I haven't slept so well in a long time.) Salty Towers has a great location and not far from the town center and things to do (ziplining, whalewathching, hiking, biking). We ate supper at the Stone Pipe Grill, The Edge, a pizza place (takeout), and Buffy's. I liked Buffy's the best -- good pub food, fresh salads, good fish burgers, too.

We loved Salty Towers! Situated in Sooke, with its own dock and gorgeous setting, it is the perfect place to get away for fishing or just relaxing. The rooms are cozy, modern, and well appointed. The B&B has its own dock where you can arrange for a fishing trip, do some crabbing on your own, or just sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The owners are attentive, but also allow you to just relax and be on your own. Breakfast is brought in your room each morning. Deer and a little raccoon family were wandering in the neighborhood each evening. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying there!
If you're looking for salmon fishing while in Sooke, we highly recommend 2 Reel Adventures. Ron is a great guide!
