“Trying to be high end but misses the mark”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

WAAAY overpriced for both rooms and food. The restaurant more resembled a mid-value family style restaurant with booths than the promised fine dining experience we were expecting... tables were marked with cigarette burns, no tablecloths etc. The food was swimming in grease at both dinner and breakfast...my angel hair pasta was actually spaghettini and the meat was supposed to be chicken but you couldn't really tell. The indoor pool area had less personality than a pool at the YMCA...no plants, no colour, painted battleship gray, the water was really murky in the pool and the smell of chlorine was nauseating. Our room appeared clean and the bed was comfortable, but I woke up in the morning with welts from insect bites that I am still scratching. The best rooms overlook the water...AND the noisy boat launch with constant trucks and boat trailers moving in and out. I would NOT recommend this place to anybody. It's like they took a picture of some high end place in Florida and tried to duplicate it in the beautiful woods in Sooke...totally out of place. On a positive note, the lobby was nice.

The hotel is situated on the ocean front and has a grandeur to it which surprises. The lobby is spacious and stunningly decorated. The reception staff greeted us enthusiastically, and gave our group a reasonable rate for a Saturday night. The rooms are sparkling new and very large. Bathrooms are well supplied and roomy. There are two restaurants within the hotel - we chose to eat at the little Japanese one and found the food to be reasonable.

The hotel was exceptionally attractive, exceptionally clean, beautiful setting and grounds, exceptionally helpful staff. This is a great place to stay. We have nothing negative to say about any aspect of our stay.

We stayed in Sooke when visiting Victoria in July of last year. We decided on this hotel last minute and we were so impressed! It is a bit of a drive from Victoria but it's an amazing scenic drive!
The outside of the hotel is fantastic. The look of it just took our breathe away. We could not believe this was a best western hotel ( nothing against best western) it just was so high end.
I have a fear of elevators but this elevator was so smooth it was a joy to take it.
Upon getting into our room it was so clean and beautiful very classy! We had a wonderful waterfront view which added to the whole experience.
The pool was wonderful with great views from the hot tub and pool as well.
We stayed for a few days and also had the opportunity to dine at the restaurant inside the hotel. We sat on the outside patio as to take in the views and I had the salmon Caesar which was very tasty. My husband had a steak which he thoroughly enjoyed. Definitely a high class place all around:)

We were quite impressed by the décor in the rooms. The outdoor appearance resembles something from N'awlings. Staff are very cordial and anxious to make sure all is well for your stay. Our room was well equipped with fridge. micro, coffee maker, sink and dishes.

Room Tip: Third floor ocean view! Quiet and scenic

Lots of room and general deficiencies: no robe, bible, satellite movie channels, local business listings, room service menus, continental breakfast, or t.v listings. Only one restaurant out of three in building open, what hours..I have no idea, pop machine broken, bath fan broken, scratches and dings in room furniture, elevator was so dark the floor I.D. sign could not be read. For such a beautiful location, the rooms' view was very limited. While the staff I did deal with were all very helpful and friendly, you can only call the front desk so many times to resolve issues that should not have existed in the first place. The odd thing was is that there was virtually no cars parked outside, and I never saw another customer in the entire hotel during my stay! For a Best Western Premier Resort I expected far more!

Room Tip: Ensure your room has a decent view, and well away from the noisy ice machines at the end of the hall...

Such a surprising hotel in its design & stature that seemingly pops out of nowhere when you round the corner in sweet Sooke. Really well maintained, beautiful views. Lots of luxury at an affordable rate. We stayed for two nights (in town for a wedding) but we will be back for a weekend getaway. Whilst you are in Sooke I recommend going for the short hike required to see the "Potholes". Really beautiful.
