This is definitely a feather in the cap for Best Western, and although I'd never stayed at a Prestige Hotel previously, I was most pleasantly surprised to find that this sprawling mammoth of a facility on the working harbour front of tiny Sooke BC, that looks so out of place in it's location, is actually a well run and luxurious facility, not all pomp and facade, as I had expected.
Don't let the concrete parking lot and boat trailers parked at the entrance on street side deceive you. Parking is underground and there is a large grassy area on the oceanfront, with gorgeous rooms and balconies overlooking the busy marina and sports fishing paradise.
The rooms are quiet, large and very well appointed, the staff were friendly and helpful, the choice of food is adequate and well considered and at present they have a family Dungeness crab special on every Sunday in the grill room. There is also a small deli in the lobby as well as surprise surprise, a raw food bar! We also had a chance to sample the buffet at a private function and it accommodated both meat eaters and vegetarian, and the numerous choices were plentiful, well-presented and tasty.
The location is ideal for getting out of the city, yet still close to the village of Sooke and a relatively short drive from both Langford and Victoria. Ocean sports aplenty are available, including fishing charters, kayaks and boat rentals. All in all, this sprawling colonial looking hotel was a most pleasant surprise.
