My husband and I decided to surprise a very dear friend and her husband in Victoria for her 60th. Although our friends were booked at Sooke Harbor, we booked Brentwood on a recommendation. We tend toward smaller, out of the way places and liked the looks of the place on the internet. Brentwood is situated on an inlet of Brentwood Bay and only about 20 minutes from Victoria. If you want beach or right on the water...not for you. The tide does come in and out of the little harbor and you are right next to the ferry that connects to Malahat and Mill Bay (nice ferry ride). The marina offers water taxis (take the water taxi to the stunningly beautiful Butchart Gardens...special back entrance to the gardens), kayaking, scuba and docking for boating travelers.
We were pleasantly surprised when greeted at reception. Our room was on the second floor on the opposite end from the restaurant. Nice hot tub on the deck. Beautiful wood furniture. Large tub with window opening to the bedroom and on to the scenery outside. Separate shower. Comfortable bed. Beautiful herb garden below us.
Staff was helpful when my husband got sick. They offered to go to the pharmacy for us. They even checked on us to make sure he was ok. Very thoughtful.
I will agree with other comments that the restaurant is not very good. TOO expensive for the quality. The pub did have a good burger though. So, if you are planning to stay at Brentwood, make dinner reservations elsewhere.
