"We were accommodated for an early check-in and given a thorough orientation. The breakfasts were outstanding. The Governor's Suite is spacious and well-appointed. A bit more work is needed in the bathroom to bring it up to the highest standard. As this suite is not facing the marina it is very quiet, but the windows do lack some for privacy as there is a four-story condo building close by, overlooking this suite on two sides. The curtains can be partially drawn to take care of this. We found the suite quite warm overnight (it was about 5C outside) and opening the windows subjected us to the noise of the rainwater overflowing from the gutters - should be an easy fix to clear the downspouts. Our hosts, Michael, Dominic and David were terrific in every respect, despite having to communicate from behind a mask during this time of public health restrictions."

I've had a few Travelzoo experiences now, and each one was well-organized and seamlessly delivered. I'm looking for my next 'Zoo adventure.

What a fine experience provided for my wife's birthday! David was a gracious host, knowledgeable about the 100+year history of the building and Michael's breakfast in the morning was truly gourmet. Super service and a well-appointed, rustic ambience to The Latch. Absolutely full value!

The Latch Inn was a unique experience. The history of this beautiful building has been lovingly preserved and enhanced by our hosts with great attention to making guests feel extremely pampered. The room was very comfortable and the breakfasts, divine! We are planning on a return visit very soon. Highly recommended.

During this time of Covid, this is the perfect “Staycation” for Vancouver Island residents. I would recommend this to anyone who feels the need to get away, but stay safe at the same time. There is lots to see and do in the delightful town of Sidney By the Sea while staying at the Latch Inn.

The personalized serice of the owners/operators was unparalled. Such a refreshing experience in a world where the "big box" tavel model seems to be everywhere. Their passion for the property and business is obvious and they shared many stories of the history of the property and area, giving us a connection with the property as well. All the thoughtful touches of a 5 star hotel; high end beds and bedding, pillow firmness options, incredible breakfast food and service. A truly wonderful and special experience - we are grateful to have been introduced to the Latch. We will be back.

We had a wonderful time at The Latch Inn! Every detail was attended to, from the warm welcome given us by Michael, the ease of touchless check-in, the spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated room, to the warm, overall ambience of the lodge. Owners David & Michael (and, although we didn’t meet him, Dominic) have done an exceptional job of restoring The Latch to it’s previous elegance. The old Inn has been tastefully and lovingly decorated and furnished and it reflects grace and charm at every turn. And the breakfast…what a delight! Served in the elegant dining room, we were greeted by David and served our choice of juices, hot coffee (*their own house blend!), and delicious homemade muffins with their signature “latch key” emblem etched in icing sugar. The main dishes were made to order, with ample choices on the menu. Our choices, eggs benedict and cheese omelette, were cooked to perfection by Chef Michael, and oh, so good! The evening prior we sipped our complimentary bottle of bubbles by the fire in the sitting room and reminisced about our first days of dating, almost 30 years ago, when we used to come to The Latch for very special, romantic dinners. We haven’t been back for many years, as sadly the place had deteriorated, but we now are thrilled to see the iconic inn restored to her former glory! Although their dining room currently isn’t open for lunch or dinner, Michael was able to suggest several restaurants nearby and the delightful town of Sidney is but a 30-minute walk or a short drive away. There is much to see and do in the area, a great place for exploring! The attention paid to ensuring guests and staff are “Covid-safe” is notable. Taking possession of the business on June 1, the challenge of trying to turn things around during a pandemic and begin to gather a satisfied client base would be monumental, but these three have succeeded in spades! We couldn’t have been happier with our experience, and we greatly look forward to going back again! The owners have great plans for the future, and we will follow them with delight! Thank you for a most excellent stay-cation, Michael & David, we will be back!
