We're a family of 4 adults on a Canada road trip and this was the wildcard choice out of the otherwise solid 4 star hotel resorts we booked. And are we glad we chose Powder Pillow!
It's not a traditional B&B in the sense that it is a large one bedroom apartment annex to the main house with a separate entrance, but totally noise proof during our stay. Whilst the B&B's website and the prior glowing reviews here gave me comfort, I certainly didn't expect the owner's genuine friendliness and the overall luxurious accommodation we were presented with.
We arrived earlier than planned and caught the owner about to head out, but she graciously showed us the accommodation and provided WiFi login. We parked up in the covered porch and headed up to the decking and entrance to the annex. The kitchen/diner area is huge and has high ceilings to provide an additional sense of space. I was worried that we'd feel crammed with parents in the bedroom and us on the sofa bed. But there was plenty of space to unpack (doored hanging closet in the main living area, double wardrobe and double drawer in the bedroom). Once the sofa-bed was out (very easy to pull out and owners were considerate enough to put a foam mattress topper to increase comfort), there was still enough room for the 4 of us to hang around the dining area and the outside porch.
The sofabed was very comfortable, I nearly forgot I was not on a regular bed when I woke up in the morning. Parents enjoyed their sleep on the proper bed, so no complaints there.
Bathroom belonged in a 5* hotel! Luxurious, spacious and plenty of fluffy towels. L'Occitane bath products were provided for those who forgot their own shampoo/ conditioner/ body wash. The large walk-in shower had good pressure and plentiful hot water. Although we didn't use it, there was heated flooring for the winter.
The guestbook within the B&B had owner recommendations for a couple of restaurants in town and the 'Village Idiot' restaurant proved to be a great choice.
The best thing for us was that we weren't restricted by breakfast hours as with other B&B's in the morning. A continental breakfast is stocked in the kitchenette which if I remember correctly consisted of a loaf of wholemeal bread, butter, variety of mini pots of jams, peanut butter pouches, yoghurt, about 1 litre of milk, cereals, carton of orange juice and a variety of normal and green teabags, coffee and hot chocolate. A full fruit basket was also provided on the dining table. We were staggered by the breakfast items provided and obviously couldn't eat through the mountain of food!
We were sad to leave and will definitely let our friends and family know about this gem in Revelstoke. Especially as when we drive 5 mins into Revelstoke town and saw the pitiful quality of motel/hotels in comparison within the same price bracket.
Thank you, Nicole, for an amazing stay. And especially for being unintrusive, but available when needed.
