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.
- 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
