We were looking for a B&B near Deep Cove because we were going to attend a wedding held at Muse Winery. We booked the Alder Road Retreat online from Manitoba, in order to be close to the Muse Winery. I was impressed with the quick response to my e-mail and found Brenda to be very helpful with directions and questions I had about the area.
Once we arrived, we felt right at home, fresh homemade baked goods were waiting for us and the room was cozy and comfortable. The communal living room offered us privacy and a comfortable space to gather with our friends who were staying in the adjacent room. It was the perfect place to stay with another couple.
Every morning we looked forward to the fresh fruit, cheese, home made granola and other goodies stocked in our communal space. It was also really nice to be able to come 'home' at the end of the day and have a snack and a cup of tea before bed. Brenda was super helpful with odds and ends we needed in preparation for the wedding. The bride was getting ready with us the day of the wedding and our room was able to accommodate three girls doing their make up together in the spacious washroom.
We had a wonderful time at the Alder Road Retreat, thank you for your excellent service.
- 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
