“Gold in Eldorado”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

The Eldorado -- a family owned hotel -- is well situared next to the lake shore adjacent to the marina. As such, the views are expansive, especially from the restaurant.
The guest rooms are clean and modern (we stayed in the new wing) and the rooftop was an excellent use of space available to guests for admiring the lake view or having a post-prandial drink. I did wonder why the rooms in the new addition had a Juliet balcony, and not a proper balcony.

The bar on a Saturday night was full of 30 somethings, and the wine shop next door was very well stocked.
The staff who cleaned up the rooms were very efficient and cheerful. Indeed, there seemed to be a rather lot of staff. If there is an area of constructive advice it would be the time it took to order breakfast and then receiving the order. Breakfasts are hearty and well prepared, but I would choose to explore other eateries in town or at the wineries for lunch and dinner.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the marina.

Hotel is wonderfully situated with gorgeous views.Room was spacious and comfortable, upscale but not pretentious. Restaurant food was average at best, the service below standard and prices rather high. Bring the food and service up to standard and it would be a world class hotel.

I booked the room a few days before and they gave me a deluxe suite at no extra charge. I had a great night sleep and had a wonderful breakfast meeting. The food was great and the service was excellent. The scenery was awesome as well which made for a great start tot he day.

We booked a room in this hotel when passing buy. We are junkies for a room-with-a-view, and as such we were immediately sold when we saw the room. They warned us it could be noisy because of the bar, but the view was so good we accepted that.
On top of the view, the room was very comfortable and the service was excellent.
We also had a great meal at the side of the water.
We did indeed have some noise problems, but they were over once the bar was closed.
The breakfast was simply ok.
Even with the noise I would go back there (if it was not so far from Belgium...)

This is my home away from home when I am in Kelowna. Always a positive experience, great rooms and on the lake. I love that the front desk staff knows who I am when I check in and check out, it makes me feel important to them. The pub is good especially in the summer with the patio right on the lake - it doesn't get better in Kelowna for a place to have a pint.
