Welcome to Sidney, BC
The Latch Inn, on Harbour Road in Sidney, is steeped in history and a glamourous past. In 1925, the Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia, Walter C. Nichol, commissioned famous architect Samuel Maclure to build him a summer home on a piece of forested property on the Saanich peninsula. The residence, completed in 1926 and coined 'Miraloma, was a brilliant confluence of the environment and artistic design.

"What a great experience!" Please ignore all older reviews... the new owners took over June 1st 2020. They totally revamped the place, and did a great job. Stylish, but lots of respect for the cool heritage features all over the Inn. The breakfast was one of the best I've ever had in a B&B - want to go back just for the breakfast. We came by bicycle, about 20 min. ride from Swartz Bay - great "secret" getaway from Vancouver.
"Unique Lodging" Set in a scenic cove, operated by 3 polite, accommodating proprietors - David, Dominic, & Michael - The Latch Inn is a charmer. My wife, dog, & I stayed 5 nights. Our room - The Miraloma Suite - was ambient, clean, & spacious; the king bed very comfortable. The word awesome can be overstated but, without exaggeration, that's what the breakfasts were. Highly recommended. We will be back.
"The Best Boutique Inn Experience" A great find, disregard all the old negative reviews, The Latch has new hospitality experienced owners that have made this one of the best boutique inns on the island. Great location next to the marina, breakfast on the patio was simply the best, a bar service in the afternoon, large rooms with super comfortable beds, an Inn with a wonderful history, and with management that are true hosts. A+++
