I didn't feel very welcome although the owner/operator did let me check in early. The room was fine with a nice garden view but the noise from the guests over my suite this morning was disturbing and there was a lack of amenities in the bathroom. The continental breakfast was not very exciting but acceptable. Overall, it served my purposes...

Thank you for providing me with feedback about your stay. We welcome the opportunity to improve. I was frazzled last Saturday. We had a full house of guests (15 people) attending a wedding next door. Everyone arriving on Saturday had requested early check-in. Also, the bride made a last minute request for space for 2 additional guests (so they did...

We had three lovely nights at the Ocean Wilderness Inn. The friendliness and helpfulness of the owners was outstanding. We had to leave early on our last morning to catch a ferry - not only were we given a lot of help planning our drive around a marathon, but were given a delicious take away breakfast to eat while we...

I am shocked at the rave reviews for this place as our experience was lacklustre in the extreme. Except for the loghouse reception/dining room, the place is a dump. I don't know how they justify their prices. The room decors are done by theme and would benefit from some serious interior design upgrades. The "theme" elements are just tacky. Our...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We welcome all feedback on how to improve. I am sorry that you were disappointed in your stay. While we strive to provide a welcoming, comfortable and delicious experience for all our guests we obviously did not succeed in your case. I only wish you had made us aware of...

We have visited this B&B in August 2012. I wish we had more time to spend there. The location is magnificent, the owners are very helpful and very nice, the rooms beyond our expectations, the cleanliness is unbelievable for me, and the breakfast is one of the best I ever had.

My husband & I stayed at the Ocean Wilderness in for 2 nights in early August. Our main reasons for visiting Vancouver island was to relax near the ocean and go whale-watching. The Ocean Wilderness was in a perfect location - just outside of Sooke, it was peaceful and relaxing. We stayed in the Pacific Panorama room, which was very...

My aunt and I planned a virtually last-minute trip to the Victoria area. I am a food snob and did not want to stay someplace with only adequate eggs or a bit of peanut butter smeared on lifeless bread. Enter Ocean Wilderness Inn. The comprehensive, delightful breakfasts warmed and filled us for our days of walking and travel. The property...

Three wonderful nights at this B&B - so close to the ocean and a great base for the daytime outings to the beaches, forest trails and West Coast beauty. The hosts had a great knowledge of the area which they shared readily. We enjoyed the hot tub and the relaxed atmosphere.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Oceanfront B and B. Perched above the Salish Sea (Strait of Juan de Fuca) overlooking the Olympic Mountains, between Sooke and Jordan River, this serene, comfortable, seven suite ocean-front bed and breakfast retreat is perfect for your holiday get-away. Located about 60 minutes from Victoria on the Southern coast of Vancouver Island. All rooms have refrigerators, as well as coffee and tea. Our English cottage garden is surrounded by majestic old-growth forest and a lovely brook that runs along our beautiful trail to the beach. Book your room overlooking the ocean or the rain forest. Our Inn is within the Pacific Marine Circle Route next to Muir Creek beach. Lots of fun things to do here, geocaching, hiking, birding, fishing, biking, surfing, seaweed gathering, kayaking, paddle boarding, kite surfing, whale watching, beach combing. Looking for lower key? Then soak in the hot tub, read, gaze at the waves. Or for something completely different do nothing just sit and gaze at the spectacular views! ... more   less
