“What a wonderful experience, we will definitely return”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

How peaceful and beautiful! Beds were ultra-comfortable, accomodations and space were well appointed. B&B owner most gracious and accomodating, really made us feel we had a friend to advise us what else to do/see/etc. Pond nearby was a beautiful sight. Close to town. Nothing we could detect that was negative about any part of the experience. We're anxious to return and stay here again.

One of the most hospitable and pretty B&Bs I've stayed in. Extremely welcoming and generous hosts. A lovely retreat with beautiful gardens, large pond and quiet outdoor sitting areas, yet only 10 minutes from Victoria Airport. Just a great find. Our stay was too short and this B&B will be on my definite "stay again" list next time I get to the coast. Highly recommended.

The house is unbelievalbe - a dream, plenty of room to spread out. House and amenities were all top notch. Spectacular sunsets and views. The owners were extremely gracious and helpful. They were also very prompt to return phone calls and e-mails with answers to questions.
I would highly recommend this property for large families.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alder Road Retreat and highly recommend. We appreciated the quiet and tranquil surroundings of the beautiful countryside. Brenda, the owner, was a a pleasure to meet and made us feel warm and welcome as soon as we arrived. The room was lovely; spacious, beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable bed with a private ensuite bath with high end amenities. The owner's personal touches made our stay such a wonderful experience. The location is in close proximity to the Victoria airport, ferry terminal and short drives to so many great sites. You must visit Sydney by the Sea which is a delightful little town. I look forward to my next visit.

This is a lovely Bed & Breakfast tucked away off the highway but with fabulous access to everything in the area. The bedrooms and bathrooms are wonderful - the common room very comfortable and set up with everything you could need or want. Your hostess, Brenda, is so gracious and accomodating - I would highly recommend this as a spot to stay for anyone!!!!!

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!

This B&B has three large guest rooms, each with a private on-suite, and all three suites join a spacious, comfortable common area where there are lots of snacks (coffee, tea, fruit, pastries, cold drinks and more). The service was superb. On the property is a large pond where we watched ducks and lots of birds. There are lots of walking trails in every direction. On our business trip we used all three rooms (two couples and one individual). Great experience!

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
