On first impressions pulling up, the hotel is very odd looking. It is gorgeous but looks more suited to being in the southern states on a plantation rather than being in the Pacific North West.
The service was friendly and helpful but we were surprised that our ocean front room we paid extra for only had small windows and no balcony. We had to pay more money to get a balcony and move to a lower floor. Any rooms above the third floor don't have balconys. The hotel is beautifully located but didn't do much to take advantage of the gorgeous views and scenery or really get the feel of the location. It almost seemed like no thought was put into the design and this was a generic blue print that they dropped here.
The rooms were spotless and well maintained. Our room had a massive shower but I was disappointed there was no soaker tub or any bathtub to speak of. The bed was comfortable and the sleep quality was good.
I would stay again but would definitely request a room with a view AND balcony. Also I may choose to look for a hotel that seems more suited to Sooke.
