Prestige Oceanfront Resort

Sooke, Vancouver Island

The hotel

Proud and stately, Prestige Oceanfront Resort is no retiring wallflower, welcoming you with its ostentatious columns, grand balconies, waterside setting, and elegant lounge filled with plush furnishings and a glitzy chandelier. Its equally decadent waterfront patio is decked out with fire pits, so you can sit out long into the evening and enjoy the hotel’s views, which stretch out over Sooke Harbour, Sooke Basin, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. To go with hotel essentials like complimentary WiFi access and a 24-hour fitness centre, they’ve laid on an indoor pool and hot tub; the suitably indulgent Le Sooke Spa; complimentary sightseeing treats like bike hire and beach toys; and two dining options — the chic West Coast Grill and the sports-themed Vault Lounge, with its gourmet pub grub menu.

Hotel is lovely, and we are not sure if the very limited hours of the coffee shop were Covid related or if this was the regular operating hours. Check in is at 4:00.....coffee shop closes at 3:00.... would have loved a coffee or tea as we needed a pick me up after travelling. The grounds were well manicured and had it been summer instead of fall,… Read more

Check in is at 4:00.....coffee shop closes at 3:00.... would have loved a coffee or tea as we needed a pick me up after travelling. The grounds were well manicured and had it been summer instead of fall, it would be nice to sit outside by the fire tables. Rooms quiet. Read less

During Covid and the upcoming long fall / winter with limited options for entertainment, my husband and I have decided to book one local BC getaway per month throughout the winter. This all in an effort to save our sanity and support the BC tourism economy. Our first Fall trip was Sooke Oceanfront resort in Sooke. Danielle sent me an email with recommendations on things to do in the area and Jacob took such good care of us from the moment we arrived. The property is stunning and situated on a marina where you can catch a whale watching trip, join a fishing charter or rent kayaks to tour the local bay. And the easy hikes in the area are numerous. I really recommend a weekend at the Prestige Sooke Oceanfront to experience a true BC weekend and recharge the batteries. Read less

Staff were super friendly and the hotel was very clean. If you can, stay on the corner units of the 3rd floor - King bed with balcony - either room 337 or 302. I would come back for sure Only complaint was our room was missing a few items...kettle, only one mug, no spoons, no robes, otherwise it was great :)

Rarely do we holiday as a family during August, but having an opportunity to escape, we took it. This hotel looked after us the second we walked in. The front desk team upgraded our room to a premier balcony suite, extra coffee was delivered to our rooms, the staff all played concierge as we questioned about places to explore and the rooms amenities were comfortable and spacious. Parking was easy, housekeeping was discreet and efficient and after 4 nights of amazing relaxation we were easily checked out. I’m going to write a separate review for the restaurant as it literally stood out as an extra special highlight for us. We will stay here again and again and again. Read less

This place is truly a hidden gem. Food at the West Coast Grill is superlative...no issues with the service because who wants to rush anything in paradise. Paid the extra to have an oceanfront room with balcony & undoubtedly one of the best rooms in the hotel. Front Desk brisk & efficient. Covid standards exceptional. Without a shadow of a doubt… Read more
