Heard of Sooke? This seaside town on Vancouver Island may not be the Victoria area’s most famous – yet – but it’s certainly one of its most charming. Hosting an annual Fine Arts Festival and boasting proximity to the Olympic Mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and pretty French Beach, it’s a fantastic base for all manner of outdoor adventures: everything from surfing to cycling to scuba diving to zip-lining. And Prestige Oceanfront Resort, a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, is a perfect base within Sooke.
The beautiful resort sits directly on the Pacific Ocean and makes getting to the best adventuring spots a breeze. (Sooke Potholes Provincial Park, another popular sight, is just a 15-minute drive.) It’s also set up so that if you’re ever feeling lazy, you’ll still have lots to do. Stay in, and discover a pool, a hot tub, a 24-hour fitness center and a marina. Finish off your day at Vault sports bar or West Coast Grill, itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, to relish carefully prepared dishes and local wines – along with the satisfaction of having discovered one of British Columbia’s best-kept secrets.

Set on the seaside, Sooke is a first-class outdoor-adventure destination, with the Olympic Mountains, beaches, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and even rainforest terrain. Zip lining, kayaking, hiking, surfing and seasonal whale-watching are some of the many popular pastimes in this Vancouver Island resort town, also known for its annual fine-arts show. Downtown Victoria is roughly 20 miles away, for more culture and spectacular scenery, and if you stick around, there are a pool, hot tub and marina at the waterfront resort.
How to Get There
This hotel is a great place to stay in Sooke. If you want a hotel, you are limited to a few and this is the best. Lots of B&B but few hotels. Expect high rates in the summer. The hotel is pet friendly but at an exceptionally high surchage. No include breakfast like other Best Western Hotels. The Internet is slow unless you pay more. Which is an issue with me. Internet at hotels is not an option. This is the way the world works now. To charge extra is criminal. In my experiences, the more a hotel charges for a room, the less is included.
Lovely waterfront location in Sooke, great facility, many rooms with balconies overlooking the water. Restaurant was closed for renovations during our stay, but the Vault (Lounge) was open and had great food and drinks--we visited it during Happy Hour and were delighted with the food and service. Rooms were spacious and shower was very large with two sprays, one from wall, one from ceiling. Very nice. All in all a great place to stay. We stayed there before a couple (few?) of years ago and the property has been very well kept.
Before writing this review I checked what others said and there are a significant number that mention issues like mine that are due to staff/management issues.
We arrived a bit early and were pleased to be given our room right away, the manager told us a maintenance man was pressure washing the balconies. The room was very nice with a large balcony overlooking the courtyard and waterfront - nice. It was a nice day but we could not use the balcony until much later because the pressure washing was still going on. Even when finished they did not clean up and our balcony was full of debris and wet everywhere, water dripping to the deck below. I thought where is the manager who should come to check the work. Furthermore in situations like this good hotels offer to upgrade or move you to another room.
It's really too bad because the place has such great potential. Location is beautiful, rooms very nice, good restaurant, lovely lobby etc etc.
Hotel staff were amazing and helpful ! Beds were comfy , room clean and nicely decorated! Food in restaurant was very good and they were very accommodating to the needs and wants if our 4 grandkids staying with us ! They have a beautiful sitting area on ocean side with firepits lovely !! But they ran out of propane which was a bummer . The gym was nice a few machines not in working order and quite hot in there . Pool was nice . Overall I would highly recommend staying here ! Thanks Ryan at front desk and Laura in the restaurant, you made our trip lovely !
Very nice hotel and had a great time just a beautiful sunset and the next morning the sunrise up over the bay was just superb, the rooms are very nice with 15' ceilings and king size bed and porch and are so nice , and yes we will be back
