“only the best from England”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

unfortunatley we only stayed for 1 night....but we'll be back!
The owners are just sweethearts. The rooms are big and very clean. King size bed. You won't miss anything. Relaxing times at the pool. Amazing breakfast served.
To be honest.....you won't find such a nice B&B in England ;-)

Three of us recently spent 3 nights with Clare and Kelly @ their lovely B&B in Kelowna
My sister and her husband were in Canada from the UK. Terry, my brother in law actually told Clare that after many years staying in B&B's - that A Touch of English was the BEST by far.
The house is lovely, situated in a beautiful residential area, easy to access by car. The pool was a god send on the hot afternoons after a busy day wine tasting
Clare and Kelly are delightful hosts and made all their guests feel most welcome - more like friends
Thanks again for making our trip so wonderful

Room Tip: We had 2 upper rooms overlooking a beautiul area of Kelowna

We spent half a week at Clare & Kelly's in July for my sister's wedding. My husband and I, along with my sisters and parents took over the entire upstairs of the bed & breakfast, and we had a wonderful time. Clare & Kelly let us use their house as our own, and we were able to do things we would have never been able to do in the same manner at a hotel, such as letting me, my sister, and my mom create the floral centerpieces for the wedding outside on the lovely patio, while my dad and the youngest sister were swimming in the heated pool beside us.

The upstairs rooms are exquisite and can only be compared to the rooms of a very high end hotel. Yet at the same time, they feel more homy than a high end hotel room would. The downstairs rooms are not quite as fancy are more like a very roomy standard hotel room. However, I believe that Clare & Kelly are planingon renovating them as well.

Great tasting, healthy food ranks high on the priority list of my family, and I can honestly say that Kelly's breakfast creations fully satisfied everyone's taste buds.

Don't wait too long to book this B&B, because it fills up quickly. My husband and I wanted to stay one extra night, but every single room had already been booked up.

Thanks Clare & Kelly!

We stayed two nights in this lovely B&B in the hilltops of Kelowna, BC and it was very hard to leave this place. Clare and Kelly made us feel immediately at home, very attentive to our needs and questions. Our downstairs suites were very well appointed, highly practical for a small family and - although this point is purely subjective - the rooms were much more tastefully decorated than anything else we saw during several evenings of looking for B&Bs on the internet in the whole Okanagan region. Beds were incredibly comfy and rooms very quiet indeed - we both had fantastic nights of sleep which were much needed after a lot of driving.
There is a pretty sizeable "real" pool (i.e. not an oversized children's pool sitting in a garden) heated just right with just the right amount of shade and sun. Everything was perfect except the length of our stay: we could have used another day of Kelowna sunshine by the poolside to make up for 10 straight previous days of rain we suffered through in the Vancouver-Victoria area. Highly recommend this place and publicly thank Clare & Kelly for the fantastic welcome.

Room Tip: The downstairs suites where we stayed were very privative, practical and cool on hot days. The upsta...

We stayed 2 nights at A touch of English in Kelowna, in the Essex Room (great view!!). We had such a warm welcome by Clare & Kelly with tea and homemade scones; delicious! Also, the breakfast that they serve is just super! Great start of the day. They are the best hosts a holiday-person could wish for. From the B&B it's only 5 minutes driving into town and close to some of the best wineries in the Valley. Stay at A Touch of English if you have the chance...worth every penny!

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Touch of English Bed and Breakfast. Clare and Kelly made us feel at home and wowed us with their genuine hospitality. The room was modern and extremely clean with small English personal touches as well. Breakfast was great but the fresh scones stole the show, best I'd ever tasted. We also enjoyed the pool after a hard day touring the wineries. We will definitely book again on a return visit to Kelowna and will recommend to family and friends.

We can't say enough good things about the Touch of English Bed and Breakfast. We were travelling for medical reasons and we were treated with such kindness and respect.

Clare made us feel so comfortable we booked our next stay before we left.
