I highly recommend Alderbrook for a peaceful and romantic getaway. My husband and I stayed there for three days mid-week. We expected an upscale spa experience and we got it.
We booked a waterfront king. Thanks to another reviewer's comments, I asked for a room with a view of the mountains (seen over the canal). The view was fantastic, and as it appears that many of the rooms are not view rooms, I would recommend you make the same request. The room was 325, in the old wing.
You cannot tell this facility was originally built in the 70's. Its remodel makes it appear brand new. The rooms are very small, but they are impeccably decorated, spotless, and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable.
The indoor pool is the premise's best asset. It's walled by glass on all four sides, so you have a view of the canal as you swim. It was clean, kid-free (it was winter) and we used it all three days along with the jacuzzi. Also, it remains open until 10, which we wish other hotels would do. Our only complaint is that the rooms don't have slippers or flip-flops that can be worn from room to pool - so you see a lot of people traipsing barefoot through the establishment.
The restaurant boasts the same great views and the food is all right. Neither of us were very impressed with our dinners, but breakfast was fine. We did get waited on by the same waitress each morning who never once got our orders right, to the point we felt we were being pranked! But we dutifully ate whatever wrong orders she brought us. The Robin Hood Restaurant is two minutes down the road. It has a higher price tag (unles syou dine in the pub section) and good ambiance (though we can't say the food was better!).
The spa was fabulous. Highly recommend it. My husband had a great experience with his masseuse and enjoyed the starry night. My masseuse was lousy, applied no pressure, especially during the reflexology, but that's the luck of the draw. Overall, though, we were very pleased and would return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Walking hand in hand, you see an eagle soar overhead. You stop to skip stones across the water. Four, five, six skips. A perfect moment suspended in time. A story for dinner. This is the place where memories are made, where families come back year after year. Like having your own waterfront cottage, only better. Cartwheels on the grass. A game of badminton at sunset. Leather couches and a glass of Washington state Syrah. The sweet succulent bite of fresh oysters. Rooms that make you say “wow” when you open the door. Can this hotel be only two hours from Seattle? It can. Welcome to Alderbrook Resort & Spa. ... more less
