“Harrison was Great”
Reviewed 6 June 2009

it seemed that a whole bunch of renovation had gone on recently in Harrison. The lake and the beach area were beautiful and this hotel is right on the front. The staff were very friendly and we had a corner room that didn't have a balcony but gave us great views of the lake and the mountains. Harrison is small but there are enough restaurants for a 3 day stopover and it mmakes a great base for exploring the area.

We were upgraded to a junior suite with a large balcony, which was superb. The suite was spotlessly clean and comfortable with settee, armchair, kitchenette and fire place. Bathrobes were provided too. There is a TV in the lounge and bedroom area. The view over the lake was wonderful and we didn't want to leave.

No breakfast was included, but the facilities are there to make your own, if you come prepared (we didn't!). However, there are several places to eat within a two minute walk.

There was a nice indoor pool, although the outside spa was not working. There is a computer with internet connection in the lobby. The only downside is that they charge for it, which seems a bit mean nowadays.

The walk-in rate was $10 dearer than the rate on their website, but they honoured this when we mentioned it. There is a $4 fee for parking, but there is plenty of free street parking right outside.

My husband and I were planning to stay here for 1 night in the junior suite after staying a previous night at a famous local resort hotel junior suite that was old and shabby and was only $20 less a night than the Harrison Beach Hotel. We fortunately didn't spend much time in the room as it was dreary. We ended up staying 2 nights at the Beach Hotel since we had such a wonderful time and the room was very clean and lovely (especially the separate bedroom with it's own tv and fluffy cozy bedding). Having the fireplace and the DVD player (we brought our own movies) and the kitchen to warm up Chinese food from dinner the previous night made for a wonderful evening. Alitha the guest services manager was professional and so helpful since she's a local and knew the area well. She was adorable. The general manager was charming and so helpful as well. Having an excellent restaurant in the hotel was a bonus too. We'll definitely recommend the hotel to our friends and be a return guest ourselves.

After reading some poor reviews from last summer on this hotel , we were so pleasantly surprised.
The rooms are immaculate , very spacious, clean carpets, clean bathrooms , mini kitchen was spotless and well stocked with utensils etc..The fireplaces in the rooms are a lovely touch. The staff was friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.

Uncharacteristically snowy and very cold conditions in southwest BC led us to much more diligently than usual, monitor the weather forecasts as Christmas approached. Our booking was made in late October, for arrival Dec 24/08 and check-out Dec 26. Up front we were told at booking-time that the hotel's restaurant would not be open during the holiday season, but an alternative breakfast arrangement would be offered as part of our package. On the week in question and with another nasty blizzard expected on Christmas Eve, when we would originally be doing the two-hour drive to Harrison, we easily changed the reservation to "in Dec 23, out Dec 25." No problem. Staff was very accommodating on the phone and in person each time. The room, described as a "Junior Suite," was on the fourth (top) floor, lake-view side. It was well appointed, heated up cosily, clean and very comfortable. Wine and chocolate-covered strawberries were cheerily delivered soon after our early check-in. A special provision for parking our car underground was much appreciated. General Manager Ken Chan welcomed us too--a very nice touch. On the snowy Dec 24, a chap who was gallantly trying to clear the falling snow on the sidewalk fronting the hotel, actually offered to shovel in front of us as we made our way to the nearby restaurant for breakfast--another very thoughtful gesture, especially as this was my tropical wife's first-ever white Christmas! We sensed there were few other guests during our stay but hey, their loss (and our gain). Not sure when we'll be back (maybe when it's less wintry), but it's a definite possibility.

The last time our family stay here in June this year was not bad, food is very good but like other people said the room needs better cleaning. We are from Edmonton traveling to Vancouver and stayed at this hotel again Saturday Nov. 29 because the rooms here have fire place. If we stay in Vancouver the same kind of room would cost alot of money. There was a big different this time staying here the room is really clean way cleaner than the last time we stay in June and the lobby has really nice decorations. That night there were fireworks on the lake I don't know why but it was a bonus. The gentleman that was there when we checked in is adorable I think he was a manager because he was really professional dress in a nice suit and helped us alot. we never ever had this kind of service from anywhere we stay thank you who ever you are. We did not take any pictures this time but I did take pictures from our last trip staying here with my kids eating lunch on the restaurant patio.

  • Liked — good deal for nice rooms
  • Disliked — the room was not too clean last time but this last stay the room is spotless

Very much like previous reviews have stated.
Georgous lake view. Staff at front desk were friendly and helpful.
Seriously in need of a good scrub down and proper cleaning of floors, walls exc, Like was previously posted, looks clean enough when you come in. Clean towels, shower exc, but you don't want to walk on the floors without shoes or slippers.
Overall was a good experience and we enjoyed Harrison. The sandscluptures were truly amazing to see.
