Experiencing B & B's have been on my "bucket" list for quite some time, and I couldn't imagine a better way to start than with A Touch of English B & B in Kelowna. I do believe they've set a standard for us that will be hard to beat!
The home is beautifully renovated; an Italian style construction, with spacious bedrooms, en-suites with most of the rooms, very comfortable beds, and fabulous views from various vantage points in the home. The decor is simply lovely and elegant, with many carefully selected antiques that grace the home, and make it feel relaxed and inviting. Weather during our stay did not permit use of the pool, but on the day we were checking out the sun shone and the pool cover removed. Revealed was a beautifully inviting pool that, if time had permitted, would have seen me dipping in and sitting pool-side for a good part of the day!
Clare and Kelly are marvellous, caring and entertaining hosts; she being a professional entertainer regales her guests with marvelous quips and delightful stories that entertain while ensuring all her guests are comfortable and relaxed. He, as a past Director of Catering for a major hotel property in Vancouver, is evident. He is also the resident cook, and guests enjoy a really hearty breakfast each day. I was most appreciative of the careful attention given to my breakfasts, as I suffer from food sensitivities; delicious!
A car will be important for accessing attractions, and the downtown is not an easy walking distance. A stroll in the area was enjoyable, quiet and relaxing; this being a residential area.
Their 17 years of experience as B & B hosts results in an experience that will, undoubtedly, have us booking our next stay with them.
