The atmosphere was very inviting and warm when we came in. Meeting with Stephan and Maria was such a joy. They made you feel welcome as soon as you walked in the door! Our room was a one I think queen size bed?? We had our own bathroom/full shower. There was even a mini fridge to put beverages in and small food items if required. We came for a weekend of shopping at the West Edmonton Mall and also to the Galaxyland and Waterslides. The distance from the Villa to the Mall was no more than 10 minutes pending traffic. Maria and Stephan have maps to many places to see and do that are easy to follow. This B&B was nice and quiet away from noisy traffic and the hustle and bustle of city life. In the evening there was a night cap left for us - homemade cream puffs. We were asked what we would like for breakfast the next day and the choices were good and the food was so tasty and you were not hungry after. There was tea, coffee, and juice offered. We sat at your usual dining room setting but they were renovating while we were there so we are looking forward to see the exciting changes on our next weekend away! If we could have stayed longer it would not have been hard to stay and visit. Maria and Stephan - Thank you for an excellent memory and we are looking forward to visiting you again! I must add that the outside is adorned with beautiful flowers and shrubbery and Stephan is growing grapes too... the parking is in the front of the Villa and is concrete and nicely paved. If you had any doubts before you read this... I hope they are gone because it will be a very positive vacation away!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Travelling to Edmonton and area? Do you usually stay at a hotel or motel? If so, chances are you'll end up booking an over priced, ordinary room that will leave you second guessing your choice; why not consider staying with us instead? First off, you'll have to take any doubts or preconceived notions you may have about the B&B experience and throw them right out the window. No shared bathrooms here, no squeaky beds in the room next door, no one else's clutter in what's supposed to be "your" room, and no overzealous hosts to haunt your stay. From each suite's full bathroom, to our 1200 sq. ft. dining area, our restaurant quality kitchen where your hot breakfast is cooked to perfection, to our spacious and peaceful sitting areas, you'll find Villa Maria to be a most unique fusion between the elbow room of a hotel and warmth of a traditional B&B; truly the best of both worlds. Give Villa Maria Country Inn a try and you'll be pleasantly surprised at how close our B&B is to a more expensive and impersonal hotel or motel. We are located on 2 acres of land, well within the west end Edmonton neighborhood of Winterburn, offering our guests easy access to Downtown, Jasper & Whyte Avenues, Old Strathcona and the University of Alberta. The River Cree Casino, Snow Valley and Rabbit Hill ski areas are all within easy driving distance, as are several major highways, including the Anthony Henday Drive (direct route to and from Edmonton's International Airport) and, if all that wasn't enough to convince you, we’re only five minutes from the shopping and attractions of West Edmonton Mall! Headed farther west? Why not make Villa Maria the perfect stop-over your way to Jasper National Park and the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains, only three and a half hours from our front door? Thanks to the satisfaction of our many guests, Tripadvisor reviewers voted us the #1 Bed & Breakfast in Edmonton not once, not twice, but 5 years in a row, earning us a spot in their Excellence Hall of Fame and giving you just one more reason to trust us with your accommodation needs.
