The Beacon Inn at Sidney is a purpose-built, adult-oriented, 9-room inn that provides elegant, yet reasonably priced and eco-friendly* accommodation with a complimentary gourmét breakfast.**
Sidney by the Sea, is a quaint seaside community that is also known as BookTown for its numerous book stores. It's home to the new Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre, whale watching tours, as well as world-class diving areas. We're also near award-winning wineries and we're only 15 minutes from the world-famous Butchart Gardens and some truly outstanding, local golf courses. And.... we're just a short 20-minute drive to all that beautiful, Victoria, British Columbia has to offer and much, much more.
Conveniently located near the north tip of the Saanich Penisula, we're also a key transportation hub in that we have an excellent public transit system and are within a 10-minute drive to Victoria International Airport, BC Ferries to Vancouver & the Gulf Islands, the Washington State Ferry to the San Juan Islands and Anacortes, and a number of beautiful marinas.
So come discover for yourself why readers of Travel & Leisure Magazine have named Vancouver Island "The Best Island in the Continental U.S. and Canada," and Victoria as the 9th best city.

*Green Initiatives at The Beacon Inn: we are committed to energy and resource conservation and have established numerous water, energy and waste reduction initiatives throughout the Inn. A few examples of our initiatives are: low water-use toilets and washing machines; using eco-friendly cleaning products and energy-saving lighting; recycling; and composting. We also encourage guests to do their part by.... re-using towels, turning off lights when away from their rooms, and recycling.
**Our breakfasts are set-menu servings (meaning that all of our guests receive that morning's breakfast of the day) prepared for two optional seating times which are at 8:00 & 9:15 a.m. We can also prepare for limited dietary restrictions, but we ask that you be sure to advise us of any such restrictions upon check-in or we may not be able to provide an adequate-to-our-standards breakfast for you.
Check-in is between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. and check-out is 11 a.m.
As we use the time between check-out and check-in (11am -
3pm) for housekeeping, running errands and outside appointments - if you require a check-in BEFORE 3 p.m. or AFTER 8 p.m., you must contact us in advance to make these arrangements. Our Front Desk closes at 8 p.m., therefore you will need to obtain information from us in advance on how to enter after hours.
