Warm and welcoming rooms that are clean and nicely appointed. WONDERFUL homemade granola always available (I need the recipe!). Homemade muffins (still warm from the oven) were enjoyed each morning, beverages & snacks were always available as well. Loved the patio with the relaxing view of the small lake. It is a bit off the beaten path, but my husband and I got to all the places we needed to quite easily. I DO recommend staying at the Alder Road Retreat!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Alder Road Retreat is a peaceful, comfortable place to stay while visiting Victoria, Sidney and Vancouver Island. Located about six minutes from both the Swartz Bay ferry terminal and the Victoria airport, it is a great jumping off or jumping in spot when visiting the Island. The Retreat is a small B&B snuggled in a forested valley, next to a busy wildlife pond, in the northern tip of the Saanich Peninsula. The gardens are beautiful; the view and ambiance are wonderful. The Retreat features a beautiful deck area, walking paths, lovely gardens and a spacious common area with fireplace. A delicious breakfast is served daily. ... more less
