Review Summary



  • Some parts of suites are poorly lit (especially the kitchens)
  • Daily fee for parking
  • No pool

Bottom Line

The 55-room Sidney Pier Hotel is a top-of-the-line boutique that offers a full-service spa, well-received seasonal restaurant, and a happening lounge. All rooms have simple but sleek decor with attractive furnishings and comfortable bedding, but the extra space and views of the water from the Signature Pier Suites make them worth the upgrade. Bathrooms are modern from top to bottom, from the sleek fixtures to the toiletries, which are locally made body washes and shampoos stored in eco-friendly dispensers. The location in the heart of the area's shops and activities is hard to beat.

On the Haro Strait in Sidney, steps away from shops, and blocks away from the ferry pier

Map of The Sidney Pier Hotel & Spa

The Sidney Pier hotel is located directly on the water near Fisherman's Wharf. There are shops, art galleries, cafes, and restaurants all within walking distance. The hotel acts as a bit of a hub for the area, and guests can book kayaking and whale-watching excursions right on-site.

Sidney is the sleepier little sibling of Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, located about a half hour north near Victoria International Airport. The area is considered first and foremost to be a gateway for eco-tourists visiting the areas parks, most notably the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve. Most come to take part in nature watching (including whale watching), and outdoor activities like kayaking and scuba diving.

The local marine community is also home to a vibrant culture. There are plenty of art galleries, museums (including the British Columbia Aviation Museum), shops, cafes, restaurants, and 12 bookstores. There are few nightlife options, though, so be prepared to get to bed early.

  • 11-minute drive to Victoria International Airport
  • Less than a minute walk to the Shaw Ocean Discovery Center
  • 14-minute walk or 3-minute drive to the ferry dock
  • 21-minute drive to Butchart Gardens, an impressive 55-acre estate
  • 28-minute drive to Victoria
