One of the most hospitable and pretty B&Bs I've stayed in. Extremely welcoming and generous hosts. A lovely retreat with beautiful gardens, large pond and quiet outdoor sitting areas, yet only 10 minutes from Victoria Airport. Just a great find. Our stay was too short and this B&B will be on my definite "stay again" list next time I get...

The house is unbelievalbe - a dream, plenty of room to spread out. House and amenities were all top notch. Spectacular sunsets and views. The owners were extremely gracious and helpful. They were also very prompt to return phone calls and e-mails with answers to questions. I would highly recommend this property for large families.

This is a lovely Bed & Breakfast tucked away off the highway but with fabulous access to everything in the area. The bedrooms and bathrooms are wonderful - the common room very comfortable and set up with everything you could need or want. Your hostess, Brenda, is so gracious and accomodating - I would highly recommend this as a spot...

Warm and welcoming rooms that are clean and nicely appointed. WONDERFUL homemade granola always available (I need the recipe!). Homemade muffins (still warm from the oven) were enjoyed each morning, beverages & snacks were always available as well. Loved the patio with the relaxing view of the small lake. It is a bit off the beaten path, but my husband...

This B&B has three large guest rooms, each with a private on-suite, and all three suites join a spacious, comfortable common area where there are lots of snacks (coffee, tea, fruit, pastries, cold drinks and more). The service was superb. On the property is a large pond where we watched ducks and lots of birds. There are lots of walking...

This is a bed and breakfast a few km outside of Sidney. The setting of the house and the garden overlook a stream. There are walking paths that you can take from the house. It is very close to the airport and the ferry terminal. There are 3 rooms that are very private from the family home. Breakfast and snacks...

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
