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. It features a thoughtfully curated wine menu. You may also elect to visit Vault, the new sports bar (opening April 1).
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 live in Victoria and try to get to the Prestige once or twice a year. Peaceful, quiet and clean place to visit. If available get a water view.
Their restaurant serves one of the best seafood chowder I have had.
The prestige is on the waters edge of Sooke Harbour, and on this trip in November it was a quiet and peaceful spot.
The hotel has a neat and clean feel, quite relaxed. It has touches of the west coast vibe in the decor, though the building itself looks almost like a plantation house in the deep south.
Services in the hotel are good. The pool room itself could do with better ventilation, but everything else was well maintained. The room didn't feel like a four star experience... TV channels were basic, towels were average, water pressure low in shower, and no real touches in the decor or in suite elements. Think a very nice standard Travel Lodge rather than a Hilton.
Still, the experience was the good, local mini break we had wanted.
I waited at the front desk for about 10 minutes before I was met by the clerk. Luckily the main lobby is beautiful and I was kept occupied by checking it out. The clerk was very business minded and could have been a bit more friendly. He told me that the hotel had a pool, a spa and 2 resraurants. The hotel has valet carts which we used. The room was lovely and came with a small fridge, coffee maker and bath robes. The room was a bit warm and we would have liked a window that opened. The air conditioning would have kept us awake. I could see this being an issue staying there in the summer months. We went to the West Coast Grill for breakfast. The restaurant is lovely and the food and service were great. Check out went quicker than check in. We would stay again at this hotel and have also signed up for Prestige Rewards because we plan on staying at other locations.
This hotel was magnificent .Views from room fabulous .Hotel staff couldn't be more helpful especially the gentleman on reception.catering for the wedding we were attending was done by the hotel and I haven't had better and they ran the wedding excellently .
Stayed for a wedding and had an awesome time. There's zero noise from the hallway so we had a restful stay. It was nice to be able to book 'ocean views' and literally overlook the ocean right below us. Heard waves crashing through the night - so peaceful! Wonderful staff, too. The only thing I missed was complimentary coffee in the lobby... but they do have a coffee shop with decent brew.
