The Ocean Wilderness Inn is located a short drive from Sooke, BC.
I chose it partly because of it's secluded feel in the woods near a beach. It includes a hearty breakfast -- cold cuts, cheese, pastries, fruit, granola, cereal, yogurt. For beverages there was: tea and coffee, with milk or cream and sugar or splenda available and orange juice. From the common breakfast room is a beautiful view of the trees, ocean, flowers and hummingbird feeder (with hummingbirds sometimes visible). The staff were helpful in suggesting local attractions and restaurants and things to do and were very personable and kind. If you and other guests feel like it you can converse with others in the common breakfast room, seating about 12 -16 (but when we stayed there was a maximum of about eight guests.) Suitable for those who can climb stairs, there is a beautiful walkway to the beach. At low tide we walked several times for over an hour along the beach encountering a maximum of 6 people over the course of each walk. It was very peaceful. We saw sea lions lounging on the rocks and some birds. There was free room wifi access which we used to assist us in finding restaurants and finding low tide times for park and beach visits. The room I chose had a skylight and a large bathtub, a shower, a king sized bed and a twin bed. The floors were charming and real wood and their was some decorative stained glass. The feel of the place is of an upscale rustic getaway. Consistently relaxing and pleasant.

Upon checking in, the desk clerk asked who's name the reservation was in. After telling her my name, she asked everyone except me if the reservation details were correct after she recited them. They just stood there puzzled. Upon settling in the room, there were several spiders in the bathroom and one in the bedroom. Otherwise parking, room comfort, toiletries and quietness were good.

The hotel was nice enough. It is in a good location close to the beach, and food. The staff were very nice and helpful. The WiFi worked well and there is a pool. The only thing I didn't like was that the floor felt damp. Being at the shore this is hard to avoid. A shampoo and dry would not hurt. Overall, it was a good experience and I would stay there again.

"On the beach, under renovation on the exterior. "
The staff was excellent, very friendly and approachable. Rooms were newly redone and well decorated. The 4 glasses in the room were dirty, obviously wiped down as lipstick rings were noted and wipe marks. We used the covered plastic cups and bottled water. Renovations were apparent on the exterior, and pool area. Kids loved the pool! Breakfast was accommodating and perfect for kids. We have stayed at Shilo previously, but this is a better hotel. Stayed at a 4 star hotel last month and had the same issue with glasses, I guess it is a given just to get bottled water now. View is incredible. Wish the restaurant was open, would have been extremely convenient.

The Chateau is pretty old, but well maintained and clean. There is no air conditioning, so you have to keep the window open. All the rooms are above a parking lot. People are leaving the hotel to go fishing at 5 AM and the noise wakes the rest of us. The little fan helped a little. The shower temperature varied from cold to hot as other people in the hotel used the facilities. The continental breakfast was rather sad. Some cut fruit would have been nice.
