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.

West Coast Grill is a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner that dishes up breakfasts, lunches and dinners of fresh, carefully prepared dishes, like West Coast chowder and citrus-miso halibut.

Discover ocean views and lovely therapies at Le Sooke Spa. Stop by for a massage, facial, body treatment or beauty service: Waxes, manis, pedis and makeup applications are just a few of your choices. Continue your wellness experience at the fitness center, open 24 hours a day.
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
We stayed at the "Prestige" for one night, during the night we realized that the washroom flushing system was not working, so for the rest of the night we had to use a rubbish bin to improvise.
When we reported it during our check out, I assumed that my friends would be offered a
discount for being unconvinced but NOTHING.
I was more then disappointed and definitely wouldn't be staying there again.
Choose this hotel because of its close location to my family for an event.
I am a BW Gold rewards member, and usually get greeted as such when arriving at BW hotel, but not this time.
The hotel is big and expansive with great water views, but it is white, and really stands out amongst all the natural beauty of the coast line (not in a great way) and looks really out of place.
There was a wedding being held the night of our stay with made it especially busy and we had had a very hard time finding a parking spot.
Our room was on the 4th floor and there was only 1 elevator for guests and staff (housekeeping carts) to use, so we had to wait several minutes for an elevator every time.
Most BW hotels include breakfast, but not this time. Room was good - queen bed but the headboard was over sized and looked like it should be on a king bed. We had a view of the parking lot, as I wasn't going to pay $50 extra for a waterview. (seems a bit high)
Appeared to be several restaurants and bars on sight, but we didn't visit any of them as we spent our time with family.
Overall, a clean and comfortable stay, but a bit expensive and they need MORE elevators.
This upscale hotel right on the water is the place to stay for a relaxing getaway on Vancouver Island. It has all of the amenities you expect from a first class hotel. The restaurant has an interesting selection of items to please the pallet of any diner. The spa is superb. Although we had a room with a full ocean view with a balcony, even the rooms with partial views had lovely views of the bay.
