“ONLY 5 Stars?”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

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.

We were pleasantly surprised with how beautiful the rooms were and how amazing the view was. We had a private suite that was much nicer than staying at a B & B where you just have a bedroom, we even had our own private balcony. The breakfast each morning was delicious, and our host made us feel very comfortable.

From the greeting of the hostess, Leagh, to her final goodbye, this B & B was perfect...and reasonable considering.
The views of the city/lake are impressive daytime and stunning at night. The suite (there are 3) we were in, Merlot, was well equipped with a full kitchen (sans stove), compy bed and very well appointed.

Breakfast both days was amazing, and pllentiful...(no need for lunch those days!!)...Wine tour picked us up at the B & B and fun was the order of the day.

Although we got lost finding it, (forgot the map/directions), it was overall a fantastic experience.

Room Tip: i beleive one of the suites has two bedrooms...

We didn't get to stay as long in Kelowna as I wanted, but knowing there were such great B&Bs in the area I knew we had to go that route. Hopeless Romantic was the perfect pick: great views, quiet, perfect sized room. Bathroom was amazing, bed super comfortable. My boyfriend loved the free (super fast) wifi, and we both loved the breakfast (which was top notch, even got the recipe for the scones) served to us on our private patio. Great recommendations for things to do. If I can ever get back through the area I will 100% stay here.

Room Tip: I thought this would be perfect for any couple traveling through, wine lovers, or a Girl's trip...

Our hostess was spectacular and such a sweet heart! Our room was luxurious and very comfortable. The view at night will take your breath away, with all of the sparkling lights and orchards in the surrounding area.We will most definitely be coming back

Room Tip: If you want the romance, the Merlot room is best!

We stayed at the Hopeless Romantic B and B this spring and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Our Private suite was exquisitely decorated and offered every amenity needed to make our stay memorable. With a great location and a spectacular view of the lake and city this was a perfect choice for our Okanagan get-away.
Our lovely hostess Leagh served delicious breakfasts and provided us with valuable information that helped us to enjoy everything the Kelowna and surrounding area had to offer. We would hightly recomend The Hopeless Romantic as our experience was a ten out of ten!

Room Tip: They are all beautiful!

My wife and I recently stayed in the Chardonnay Suite at the Hopeless Romantic B&B and we were very pleased. The apartment / suite was spacious, comfortable, tastefully decorated and had every convenience you could possibly need whle away from home. What I particularly liked was the fact that it had its own entrance and I didn't feel that I was sharing any common areas with other guests. In fact, I never saw anyone other than the owner, Leagh, while we were there. Leagh was a delight to deal with and would bring delicious breakfasts to us each morning. The Hopless Romantic is certainly a safe bet for a very nice stay while in Kelowna.

Room Tip: I believe that the Chardonnay Suite was the biggest apartment available, and certainly more than eno...
