Overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Sooke Harbour House is renowned for its rugged beauty and orca watching. Guests can be seen strolling and sampling the expansive edible gardens. 

Art thrives at this hotel: the interior is bedecked with paintings and works of more than 150 local artists. The on-site art gallery is open daily and entry is free. Artwork can also be purchased at the gift shop. After perusing the gallery, get in on the beachfront action steps away, where sea lions and otters are frequently seen sunbathing.

The acclaimed Sooke Harbour House Restaurant was the recipient of the 2016 OpenTable Diners' Choice Award. The menu changes daily to keep things fresh, and ingredients are local and organic.

Each individually decorated room offers views of the ocean from a private balcony, soaker tubs and wood-burning fireplaces.

The house is decorated beautifully, most staffs are friendly & personal except one young woman at the front desk (said all necessary words but not in a friendly demeanor, arrogant?)

Our room looked out over the sea and we had the magical experience of observing an otter on the shore. We were disappointed the restaurant was closed on both nights of our stay but enjoyed our beautifully presented food in the Copper Room. We definitely plan to return.
