Small and a bit underwhelming, but the staff were great. Everything was a bit past it’s prime blooming days, so I think it would be stunning in late may or early June.

We were staying in a hotel near the Inner Harbour and decided to drive to the nearby Abkhazi Gardens. It was a short drive and we initially drove right past it because the entrance is ‘hidden’ by large shrubs. (You’ll know you’re close to the...More

Every garden is different, and many of them offer a great deal to the visitor. For my wife and I the Abkhazi Garden in Victoria is quite honestly "the best in the region!" And for us this includes the much better known and much more...More

We can walk there from our condo and go because of the gardens, but also the tearoom. The gardens (naturally) aren't always all in bloom but are a nice stroll on a summer's day. The tearoom is what makes it for us. We're from Scotland...More

We had "elevenses" in the tea room (delicious, and a beautiful presentation) then toured the garden. It is beautifully maintained and the story of the house is interesting. I have never seen rhodos as bug as trees before!
