We only stayed one night. Don't think we could have handled another night on the old lumpy bed. The bed spread was also very old and lumpy. Breakfast was the usual free continental breakfast. Very overpriced for the size and dated room. Good access to highway, restaurants and water.

This has to be the best location nearest to the beautiful Okanagan Lake. Very clean, quiet, friendly staff, and convenient to all amentities! Rita and staff are always willing to help making our stay very comfortable. Will return again next year or sooner!

Loved the location right across the road from the lake. Room was pretty cramped -- we were upgraded to a king-sized bed, which just took away some walking space. Room was clean, functional, comfortable. TV was way too small for today's world. Walls were a bit of a problem; could hear people next to us but, fortunately, they shut up... More

We have stayed here before, and we were disappointed by the decline of the premises. The Hot Tub was out of order, and had been for quite awhile, with no intention of repair. The better rooms were out of commission due to wet carpets. The decor is very dated, and needs maintenance. The breakfast was not as good as it... More

Thank you for writing a review, yes at the moment our hot tub is down and this has been removed from the websites. The owners have not made a decision whether it will be replaced or not. Our property is an older property but the rooms are clean and comfortable. The furniture is not the latest on the market but... More

The sweet charming hotel makes my summer every year. Always a bowl of fruit to welcome you in the lobby, as well as doggie treats. I have stayed for family baseball trips, business and PLEASURE.

We were looking for an economic place and ended up here. Management is either missing or purposefully allows drunk and rowdy folks. Non mainstream people like us just about survived and would not go there again.

Thank you for your review. As we are a downtown property close to bars and entertainment, we cannot control what happens on the streets around the property. If a guest is distrubing your stay then you need to let the front desk know, so we can deal with it. More

We booked the Abbot Villa on the Lake after looking up hotels, motels, and B & B's on the Kelowna website. The price was good and Karen at the front desk was helpful and very friendly.

This hotel offers more than you should expect based on price and location. There is a pool, sauna, hot tub and two roof top patios. Less than a minutes walk brings you right to the heart of Kelowna's downtown or City Park. In my opinion, you'd have to be stuck up to stay in any other hotel downtown. Even then... More
