I can't say enough good things about our stay at Sooke Harbor House. First, we tried to book a room a bit late, our email sent to book a room was not received - the desk was great and let us know immediately (later that day) when a cancellation was available. We chose this Inn to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It was a great place to do so. The service was incredible (including arranging for the kitchen to make us some sandwiches for lunch when they don't usually serve lunch other than the box lunches that come with the room!). Our room was spacious and comfortable with a wonderful soaking tub and view of the water. We stayed in Room 19, Passion Flower. Now, OK, the "gate" over the bed is a bit over the top and silly, but ah well, I usually don't rate a room on the art work!!
We had a wonderful meal in the restaurant. We have eaten at nice restaurants all around the world. While this restaurant is certainly not inexpensive, I would argue that the quality compares with the best places that I've been, and it presents a value in its class. The service was astute but not overpowering; the sommolier was very perceptive and knowledgeable. The food was tasty, interesting and exciting to eat. That is what I enjoy in a meal.
I can't recommend this place more. For our special occassion, it was nearly flawless.
