In the Area
The vibrant, manicured blossoms of Vancouver Island’s famous Butchart Gardens are just across the bay and can be reached via boat from the resort. Brentwood Bay is also near a rich agricultural and wine-producing region, making for a pleasant day of tastings at local vineyards such as Blue Grouse, Starling Lane and Averill Creek. Attractions in Victoria include the Royal British Columbian Museum, which showcases natural and human history; the 1890s Craigdarroch Castle; and a formal afternoon tea at the Fairmont Empress Hotel.
How to Get There
Had a wonderful time at the hotel. Staff were excellent. Food is very tasty. This place has a great view of the water. We loved our weekend away and would do it gain.Lots of places to walk to including the beach area. Lots of people kyacking or going out in their boats.
The view was everything in this room, the fireplace was an added bonus. We arrived at night and drove past the entrance, no outdoor lighting, so watch closely! The hotel has a restaurant that served great appetizers and strong drinks! Very comfortable bed and outdoor patio. The location was perfect. About 20 minutes from downtown Victoria and 5 minutes from Butchart Gardens. Free parking!
We were so glad to have chosen this resort for our three nights on the Island. It’s very quiet, with a beautiful view of the inlet and a very nice room, comfy bed, great bathroom. The spa’s hot stone massage was the best I’ve had anywhere. The restaurant is only adequate, but the staff is way above.
If I lived closer, I’d come again. We visited Victoria, Butchart Gardens, and Sidney...all very easy drives from the resort.
