Rosewood Inn - Victoria, British Columbia
On the southern tip of Vancouver Island off Canada’s Pacific coast dwells ‘a bit of Old England’ in Victoria, British Columbia, a city boasting quaint charm, formal gardens, a beautiful inner harbor and 150 years of preserved history with an equally bright future. Visiting this ‘City of Gardens’, where flower baskets hang from every lamppost and shops sell fine English china, Irish woolens and Scottish tartans, could trick you into thinking you had crossed the ocean and landed in the British Isles just in time for afternoon tea. And afternoon tea is served at your home resort, Rosewood Inn, an English-style Bed and Breakfast, located in a historical preservation building, where each unit is unique in style and décor. Rosewood's charming turn of the century décor will take you back to an earlier time when the pace was slower and everything is just a short stroll away. Start your day with a fresh four-course gourmet breakfast served in the Rosewood conservatory. Then take off on your exploration of the famous Inner Harbour where you can book a 3-hour sail on a tall ship. A short walk will take you to the BC Parliament and the Victoria Visitors Centre where you can find out everything a tourist needs to know. Visit one of the oldest Chinatowns in North America for a Hidden Dragon Walking Tour then take a double decker bus to the beautiful and world-famous Butchart Gardens. A change of pace from the everyday hustle is just what you ordered and with so much more to explore on this beautiful island, a return trip is inevitable.
