My girlfriend and I spent our first-time trip together at South Garden B&B for 3 nights while touring Harrison Hot Spring. It was my first time at a B&B in BC and was blown away by the owners' quality of service, the provided amenities and their effort to making each guest feel special and comfortable.
We stayed at the Sunflower Suite and love that we have our own private door. The room was monstrously spacious. There were different sized hand-knitted socks in a basket by the door. One queen sized bed and a large futon bed. Every morning, we enjoyed a full breakfast of our choice that we'd selected on the previous day from a picnic basket. Complimentary snacks such as potato chips, tea bags, hot chocolate, coffee, kisses chocolates, water bottles, juices and soft drinks were provided and replenished daily. We often packed our unfinished home-made scones and/or muffins from breakfast with their free juices as afternoon snacks while sightseeing. At the corridor, they have a selection of old DVD movies, microwave and extra glasses, plates and utensils for guests to help themselves. I did not have a chance to try their outdoor hot tub because of the cold wet weather but I had hot tub in my own private room.
For the same room rates as offered by Harrison Hot Spring Hotel, I find South Garden B&B more favorable considering their rooms are more comfortable to stay in. Moreover, they include FREE breakfast, snacks, hot tub, parking and DVD movies which are not inclusive in any of Harrison Hot Spring Hotel's deals. I would definitely stay at this B&B again.
The only reason why I took off a star is because my girlfriend, who slept on the futon by the door near the corridor, reported that she was woken up several times very early in the morning upon hearing someone's footsteps and toilet flushing from upstairs. Although it was not loud enough to be heard at my end, it was loud enough to awaken my girlfriend at her side. Otherwise, everything else exceeds my expectations.
