“Almost Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2011

We arrived just before noon hoping to store our luggage, however much to our suprise there was a room ready for us. We were very happy to be able to settle in. The desk staff was always super pleasant and efficient, the hotel is very clean, the pool (although we didn't use it) appeared clean and there was no smell of chlorine in the lobby area.

The room is large, the bathroom beautiful, and bed is amazing!

Breakfast was typical hotel style - cold cereals, cold boiled eggs, yogurt, bananas and apples, as well as juices, tea and coffee. There was also a toaster for english muffins and toast as well as a well used waffle iron. We semed to hit the timing right both mornings and it wasn't too crowded at all. The staff was constantly cleaning and tidying up the area.

The hotel is right on a lovely golf course and we ate at the dining room of the golf course twice. It was fabulous and I cant recommend it highly enough. Amazing fish tacos! There are lots of other restaurants and shopping close by if you are so inclined.

We enjoyed a lovely day trip on Bottle Neck Drive to visit the Wineries - as well as day trips to Summerland and Peachland. All very pleasant. No end of things to do in the area.

My review says álmost perfect - and this isn't really a fault of the hotel, however it did influence our stay. Our room was on the ground floor overlooking the parking lot. While I realise someone has to have these rooms and we were lucky to get an early room - I would definately request an upper floor room on the golf course another time. There would be a huge difference in the feel of the room!

Room Tip: request upper floor on golf course side

Clean, quiet, great staff. Very good location up the hill in West Kelowna which splits the distance between Kelowna and locations farther south. Also, a good range of eateries within a 5 minute walk...and a pool!

We've stayed at this hotel 3 times already in the last 2 years for leisure in the kelowna area. We like it because it is a new hotel with newly renovated rooms and bathrooms which makes it a comfortable and pleasant stay. No dingy dark bathroom here. The hotel is located on the West Bank so you will need to cross the bridge to get to Kelowna downtown. If you have a vehicle and don't anticipate on crossing the bridge much during rush hour, then this hotel is a great value for your money. There is a big Wal-mart across the mall (with a fresh vegetable and cooked food department) so you can grab some cheap groceries there. On the immediate block of the hotel there is a Tim Hortons and Thai Resto where you can get a quick bite to eat if you arrive late in the night. This is a kid friendly hotel that features a swimming pool with water slide and a hot tub - set in the usual family hotel style. There is also a complimentary waffle breakfast with little extras on the side like hardboiled eggs, yogurt and muffins. The management and their staff was also very hospitable and gave us a free upgrade to a family suite which features two queen beds (one in it's own separate room) and a little TV area. This hotel is a great value for those with kids and those who have no trouble being 5 min. across the bridge from DT kelowna. (PS. it also has free wi-fi with good reception)

Room Tip: Ask management if free upgrade is available.

We drove by it the 1st time because it is tucked away and you really have to look for it.
What a beautiful new hotel and a great addition to BW. Wish there were a lot more of this style! The interior was lovely and the staff very friendly on check-in. By the looks of the parking lot, the hotel was completely full - but much to our surprise and delight, we were given an upgrade to a beautiful suite (we are Diamond). The only disappointment was, we would not be in our room very much to thoroughly enjoy it, because we had a lot of visiting to do. :(
The beds are so comfortable and we really did not want to get up and start our very early morning of travel - not something you would expect from a BW. Room was very clean and no smells - a good way to tell that it is new. Large showers and bathroom. This suite would be perfect for a family traveling, as it had a separate bedroom, bathroom and tv. The microwave and fridge are great to have in your room.
The pool looked very inviting, but we didn't have time to enjoy it. The kids there were having a great time on the indoor waterslide.
The free breakfast was yummy as usual - love those waffles! Still cannot understand BW's use of plastic utensils and paper plates - you cannot tell me that it is better for the environment with all that garbage!! Very friendly staff at checkout.
This BW is a must to stay in if you are in Kelowna. Yes, it is out of the town of Kelowna, being over the bridge in West Kelowna - but, it is cheaper and more than worth the 10-15 minute drive!! I can't wait to stay here again.... Maybe a Wine Tour is in order this Fall :)

Kelowna was packed and expensive as usual, so we kept on south a few kms to find this hotel set back from the road on the left. The room was fine but above the indoor pool so noisy till they closed it. Road traffic audible in the lounge but not in the bedroom. Comfortable no complaints. The Thai facing was good value but not spicy, even on 5 of 5 request. B'fst a scramble but included.

This hotel is immaculate and the staff go out of their way to help you. The complimentary breakfast is fantastic with hot waffles, cereal, english muffins, toast, yoghurt, coffee, juices and lots more. You don't leave there hungry. The rooms are super clean and spacious and have quilted covers with tons of pillows.
We had booked a room the night before from Creston where we stayed at a small motel and had no problem getting a room for two nights on Thursday May 19 and Friday May 20th. We were to have a king bed and when we got there we asked if it had a balcony and nice view but those kings were all taken so he let us have two queen beds with a fantastic view of the lake and golf course with a balcony for the same price. He was very nice to deal with.
The pool is a little small as there is a water slide but we still enjoyed it and the jaquzzi/hot tub. There was an Irish Pub next door where we went for supper and a few beers.(Kelly O'Briens). Very good food and ambiance and servers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel and the shops nearby.
There are at least six wineries very close by which we were able to visit so the location of the hotel is great (easy to find and do things all around there).
I highly recommend this hotel for anyone to enjoy.
