My wife and I have stayed at the Royal Anne twice, for 4 nights each time; our second visit was a few weeks ago. While it's an older hotel, we're very satisfied with it. And it's reasonably priced for Kelowna.
We stayed in an "executive suite" both times, which is a larger room with a sitting area with sofa, small refrigerator, etc. We always request a room on an upper floor away from the street. The street gets pretty noisy on weekend nights, and the view of the city and Lake Okanagan is wonderful from those rooms. The location is excellent for us, right in the midst of downtown, close to museums and galleries, great restaurants (particularly the Rotten Grape and Fresca, both of which are close by), the park, good coffee houses, etc. We also like staying downtown because Kelowna gets quite busy in the summer and traffic can get pretty bad. The only drawback to downtown is that the hotel's parking lots are small and street parking can be difficult (again, mostly on weekends). However, there is a free parkade 2 blocks away which we used one night.
The room decor and furnishings are nice - certainly not upscale, but comfortable, and we had good internet access for our laptop. Our room was clean, except for one day this trip when our room wasn't cleaned and made up. The front desk staff explained, with apologies, that several housekeepers called in sick that day. They did provide us with fresh towels when we asked (a small discount would have been a nice customer service touch). Otherwise, we're satisfied with the cleanliness - which is very important to us.
The hotel serves continental breakfast in a small dining room which we find more than adequate. Staff did a good job keeping the food replenished.
Overall, our stays at the Royal Anne have been pleasant and a good value.
