A Touch of English Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 49 Kelowna B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 18, 2013

We stayed back in the end of Summer and it was such a lovely trip. A very short drive (maybe 5 mins, if that) from the Kelowna town centre, and a great view over the area from the bedroom.

The bed was giant and super comfortable, the electric fireplace in the bedroom made it very cozy and the breakfast really set us up for the long drive back to Vancouver.

A perfect place to stay for a comfortable and relaxing stay while visiting some wineries during the day.

Thank you so much!

We fully agree with the other reviewers who found "A touch of English" to be all you could want in a B+B with lovely clean rooms,friendly hosts and great food.The "High Teas" around the swimming pool add an extra touch and overall we found it to be a wonderful place to stay in a beautiful part of Canada.

Room Tip: There is a staircase and you are requested to leave your shoes at the door.

We returned to A Touch of English Bed & Breakfast for the 3rd time and as usual had a great 5 day stay. Clare and Kelly are the most gracious hosts, their warmth and good humour always makes our stay a great experience. They have very well appointed rooms and suites, lovely décor, very clean and very cosy. The suites are very well equipped with everything one would need for a short or an extended stay. With Kelly's cooking skills and Clare's baking skills be prepared to be wowed. With the three course breakfasts of juice, fruit, yogurt, granola, waffles, eggs benny with smoked salmon and various other delectable hot breakfast delights, you certainly won't leave the table hungry. Enjoy Clare's yummy home made scones with some afternoon tea or in summer Clare's Sangria, certainly an added touch. In summer the pool is a welcoming sight and one of our favorite hangouts at the end of the day. A Touch of English is certainly not your typical bed and breakfast......you come as strangers and leave as friends!!

Room Tip: They are all excellent rooms and the suites are good for extended stays

We had a truly memorable stay at "A Touch of English". From the moment we reached the doorstop we were warmly welcomed by the ever bubbly and loving Claire and felt like a member of the family. After being shown to our wonderful room, The Essex, which was like a mini oasis with a view, we were served a spectacular high tea including the best scones I have ever tasted (my Mom is English and having travelled to England many times I believe I have an educated opinion). Kelly, the other half of this dynamic duo, cooked up and served us some of the most delicious breakfasts we've had. Each morning we waited with anticipation to see what we would feast on. Prior to going to sleep we sipped on the complimentary sherry provided in a crystal decanter and glasses, a very nice touch. We woke refreshed after having slept like babies in the comfy deluxe king size bed. After breakfast Claire & Kelly provided us with lots of advice as to where to visit and spend our free time in the beautiful Kelowna - their knowledge proved invaluable.

Claire & Kelly are not only lovely and warm people, they have created a wonderful 'home away from home' for us and I'm certain for all who have the opportunity to visit Kelowna and "A Touch of English".

We discovered this gem four years ago and return every chance we get! Clare and Kelly are wonderful hosts and we now count them as friends. The rooms are spacious and cozy. We prefer the king size beds and any of the rooms with a king bed in them. Everything is very clean and the food is to die for! It doesn't get any better!

Our first visit to A Touch of English was a memorable one, made so by our warm and engaging hosts, Kelly and Clare. The accommodations were spotless and spacious. The view from the house overlooked beautiful Kelowna scenery. Kelly's culinary skills are top-notch, this coming from someone who is regularly spoiled by a daughter who is a chef. Other guests who were repeat visitors affirmed that our delightful experience was normal. I would heartily recommend A Touch of English.

My friend and I had a wonderful two night stay, in the very comfortable Brekshire room. We were served a very tasty breakfast each morning. We had a wonderful relaxing day of exploring and wine tasting, when we got back were made to feel so welcome,we even had some delicious goodies!
