Used this hotel for a child's sports event, and was pleasantly surprised. It was clean and nice despite the age of the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the price was very reasonable. The bed was comfortable, the linens were good quality and the bathroom was sparkling clean. Being right on the main street of the downtown core, there was plenty of shopping and food handy. Try the bakery across the street, amazing food! We had a little balcony (handy for those of us that smoke), with a view of the waterfront and boat docks. The free breakfast was ok, a continental breakfast is what it is, and there is a Starbucks across the street as well (I found the hotel coffee a little bland). Other families that also traveled to Kelowna for the same event stayed at the Best Western or some such thing, and they had a view of the Home Depot across the street for what was probably the same or more per night. When we return to Kelowna we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you wish to avoid the hustle and bustle of downtown, ask for the side of the hotel not facing the...

Good location but the place is old. The carpets are stained and dirty. The furniture has stains. The walls are thin and room to room noise carries. If you have a truck there is no parking underground and you have to take your chances parking on the street.

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us.

I am sorry we did not meet your expectations during your stay. We are continuously improving our property as you may have notice with all new bathrooms, beds, linens and large screen TV"S just in the past two years. We are fully aware of some carpet and furniture stains and have actually just placed an order for all new case goods (furniture) which will be put into place in the fall of 2014. This hotel was built in the early 70's and as such the height of our underground parking just cannot accommodate the new trucks of today. We also have above ground parking which can accommodate trucks located directly behind the hotel.

Once again, thank you for sharing your comments with us. We certainly would hope you would give us the opportunity of serving you in the future.

This hotel is situated right in the middle of Bernard Street which is the main strip in Kelowna. Our room was on the top floor (5th), right in the centre, facing the street. If you like noise and activity this is the location you want to be in. There is a bar right across the street that is lively and there was also construction going on at the next intersection. I happen to enjoy all the activity and the thought of being over the main drag. If you prefer quiet and are willing to sacrifice the view, ask for a room on the other side of the hallway. We were in a room with two queen size beds. Everything is clean, well appointed and roomy enough. There is a balcony from which you can enjoy the view. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast is not spectacular but certainly more than adequate and satisfying. The only drawback is if you have a car you are not guaranteed a parking spot in the hotel's underground or outdoors behind the hotel simply because there are not enough spaces. Regardless there are enough options close by that with a little bit of inconvenience something can be figured out. Also the gym is not the greatest but that is something I am very picky about so I used a GoodLife that was less than a 10 minute drive away. The room rate was extremely reasonable especially when compared to other hotels in Kelowna. I am planning a trip back in the summer and the rates are higher but still reasonable compared to other hotels. There are no other hotels as well situated downtown that i could see. I'm looking forward to my next stay.

Room Tip: As noted, choose between rooms that oversee the main strip that come with noise and activity or the...

Royal Anne Hotel gets you right in the center of Kelowna close enough to stroll to the lake. You are on the "tourist" strip so there is no need to drive to get to some great restaurants, shopping etc. We were on the third floor facing the strip. The room was updated which was nice. The hotel staff were great. Our only concern was that the bar across the street got noisy with patrons going outside to smoke. We didn't have our windows open but could hear them talking, a quick remedy was to turn on the air conditioner which wiped out the sound of the street. The breakfast was nice, there were the regular choices for free hotel breakfasts. All in all, we were very happy with our choice of hotels for our stay in Kelowna.

This is my go to hotel when visiting Kelowna. Big clean rooms, cool street views and plenty of great restaurants. My biggest pet peeve in a room is when the table for the tv is lower than the beds. Hard to see the tv when your feet and bed are in the way. At the Royal Anne you will not have that problem as the large flat screens are up on the wall in clear view. I also found this Hotel to be pretty quiet but when staying street side although with great views can be a bit loud if your saying on a weekend as there is a pub right across the street. So go have a few pints and join the crowd. Underground parking is nice if your vehicle will fit (low ceiling). Great Hotel close to the water, restaurants, shopping, night entertainment, park, outdoor winter skating, casino, and home to the Kelowna Rockets WHL hockey areana right up the street.

We booked the cheapest room and it was one of the bigger rooms we stayed in for our entire trip. Two queen beds and a (small) private balcony overlooking the street. Bit noisy at night due to the pubs right outside but quietened down after midnight. Breakfast was great! cereals, fruit, bagels, juice, tea and coffee. Parking available underground or in the car park in the back alleyway free of charge. Not overly fancy but a good clean hotel.

Room Tip: If noise bothers you at night, ask for a room that isn't facing the street
