Nestled atop a hill overlooking the beautiful city of Kelowna and the Okanagan Lake sits the Hopeless Romantic B&B. Seekers of quite solitude, sumptuous surroundings, and mesmerising views that beckon you to sit and reflect on the beauty that is laid out before you will find the Hopeless Romantic B&B to be the portal to your dream vacation.
The Hopeless Romantic is not just a B&B, it is conjurer that seduces, captivates and engrosses you in its charm. Once taken in you will not want to leave.
Leagh is the enchanting host that has created this mystical and tranquil gem. Her warm and magnetic personality combined with infinite attention to fine detail and meticulous consideration to cleanliness ensures that your stay will be memorable.
The beautiful Okanagan valley is famous for its vineyards, and in keeping with that general theme Leagh has created three sumptuous guest rooms, Merlot, Chardonnay and Champagne. Our Champagne guest suite evoked a feeling of elegant simplicity and charm. At some deep level we were overawed by the cleanliness and placement of the furnishings such that our mere presence in the room conveyed a feeling that we were making a mess.
The bathroom, complete with its champagne air-bubbles bath and the “his and hers” sinks, is so well appointed and of such a high level of cleanliness that you can see the bathroom reflected in the gleaming floor. The four poster bed visibly oozes comfort and doesn’t disappoint as it envelops the weary eyed wanderer taking you cosily off to the land of nod.
Many people have qualms about staying in B&B’s. Somehow buried in our psyche is a fake memory of a surly and wholly disagreeable cantankerous land lady, replete with cigarette butts dangling from the corner of her mouth and barking orders about what time you can be in the house. Breakfast is often a cold piece of toast surrounded by strangers trying to make polite but uncomfortable conversation. Wake up it is only your worst nightmare.
Welcome to Leagh’s world. There are no rules to time in and out of the house. You may come and go as you please. Breakfast is always served on your private patio or in your room at a time that suits you. Breakfast is an ambrosial delight with portions that will keep you satiated throughout the day. Each morning we waited with eager anticipation as to what would be served up, and not once were we disappointed in the quality or the portions.
Leagh is the consummate hostess who has created an imaginative and emotional appeal that ensures guests will return as frequent visitors. She has created an environment that provides a pleasurable feeling and leaves you with an emotional attraction to quickly return to the Hopeless Romantic.
If our simple five star rating is the measure of quality then the world’s top five star hotels would learn a great deal from what Leagh has achieved with the Hopeless Romantic.
She fails only in one important point.... she has yet to provide a way that makes the passing of time stand still or slow down enough for guests to fully enjoy their stay.
