The grounds and flowers are just okay. I like Government House grounds way better and you can't beat the Bucharts for flowers. It is not cheap to go in and the restaurant is small and the food not great.

The gardens are a tiered area with fauna and plants carefully looked after. It is out of the way and a delight to walk through

This is a small garden, but it is impeccably maintained and lovely in all seasons. Also a lovely spot to have tea or lunch.

Having read the reviews I was looking forward to something special, but it was disappointing. Gardens are pretty, but nothing spectacular like Butchart. Food was tasty, but expensive. Although it is "free" there is a suggested donation of $10. I wouldn't recommend it.

Beautiful, easily walkable gardens with a nice family run tea house in the center. Service was good and friendly. Food was good but no comparison to White Heather.
