Our recent visit to Azureridge was nothing short of opulent! - Rider Friendly Business Review Featured

AzureridgeOur recent visit to Azureridge, located near Priddis, AB, just outside of Calgary, AB, was nothing short of opulent!

We arrived a bit earlier than we had first anticipated but we were met with nothing but welcome and quickly shown by Jennifer to the patio area where we ordered drinks and some light appetizers. While waiting for the drinks, we were introduced to the head Butler, Jimmy, and our Butler, both of whom were amazing. My husband ordered a simple chicken Caesar salad which was very yummy but the charcuterie plate I ordered with Oka cheese and Prosciutto was fabulous and exactly what I needed after a long drive. As a welcome we also received the hotel's signature drink which had Blue Curaçao caviar in the bottom. Yum!

After a beautifully prepared coffee and a quick nap in the well appointed Opal Room, we took the opportunity to check out the amazing grounds. What an absolutely beautiful location! The landscape was nothing short of breathtaking. The sound of rushing water, the vibrant colour of the flowers, the beauty of the trimmed conifers all made for a calm, relaxed atmosphere. A short time later, we ventured inside, Jimmy greeted us and ushered us to our table where we enjoyed a nice white wine with a most amazing meal. I enjoyed the halibut and my husband had the short rib and the steak. We both agreed our meals were top notch. The halibut was beautifully prepared while his steak melted in my mouth. Hard to believe the meal was prepared in what was the kitchen for the original home owner!

Back to the room where the large jacuzzi tub afforded a great bubble bath and the darkened room lent to an amazing nights sleep. The evening turn down service was a nice touch with comfy robes and slippers laid out for our use. We rose early and headed out to seek breakfast. The server was so personable and although we were the only couple in the restaurant, she was pleasant and friendly, making sure we had freshly prepared coffee, offering to make us one to go, and the food arrived fast, hot and scrumptious. We both chose the meat omelette and again it was perfectly prepared. Both of us were suitably stuffed and my husband could hardly finish the large portion while I did my best. Our butler happily gathered our bags from our room, loaded them in our car and provided us with cold bottled water for our trip home.

This facility was built as a family home and guest house but it is perfect as a boutique hotel. I wish we could spend a week there, enjoying the games scattered throughout the property, lounging on the outdoor furniture, climbing the water tower, enjoying burgers and beer in the gazebo lounge and maybe even taking in a round of golf at the private golf club nearby. Alas, we had to head home but it was an altogether better trip for our stay at Azureridge.  Maybe next time we can arrange an in room couples massage! - Holly Sorgen
