“Wonderful stopover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2011

We were referred to this B&B by the Visitor Centre in Kelowna, and we were welcomed in with open arms, freshly brewed English tea, and the opportunity to cool off in their pool. The room (Essex) was elegant, the bed comfortable, and the company superb. I would recommend this as a base for exploring the surrounding area, the local vineyards and other attractions.

This B&B was fantastic. Clare and Kelly are super friendly and inviting. I stayed one night in the Norfolk room. It was beautifully decorated and I had the best night sleep (amazing bed). Their house is beautiful, but the best part was the scones and breakfast. When we first got in we sat on the veranda and enjoyed tea and scones as we looked out onto the beautiful Okanagan Valley. For breakfast we had a great baked grapefruit, lemon poppyseed bread and incredible berry crepes. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!!

We arrived for a two night stay and were immediately impressed by the quality of the room (Essex room) and the very inviting pool that we overlooked. The B & B itself is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood located on a hill overlooking Kelowna.
The en suite room was clean and spacious with a king sized bed. Bottled water was provided along with the usual bathroom amenities.

Clare and Kelly were very good hosts in providing information and recommendations on what to do in the area as well as offering us drinks and serving delicious breakfasts.

The B & B has a nice patio in which to relax and read as well as a good sized pool which was quite deep and made a pleasent change from the normally shallow pools of hotels.

One of the things we enjoyed most about our stay there was meeting new people. As with most B & B's, there are only a small number of rooms and the atmosphere created is conducive to socialising with other guests through sitting down to breakfast together or lounging by the pool in the case of a Touch of English. Clare and Kelly further enhanced the atmosphere by providing freindly faces and chatting with everyone.

If there is one thing we would have preferred, it would have been A/C in our room. A fan was provided and was adequate but when we were there it was around 33 deg C. However, I fully appreciate that it must be expensive to install an A/C system in a small B & B when it is only worth having for a couple of months during the year. Since we are quite good sleepers, it wasn't an issue for us, just a preference.

Overall, it was an extremely enjoyable stay and if we head that way again, we will definately be booking through a touch of english.

thanks for the hospitality,

Alex & Josefin

We stayed with Clare and Kelly for 4 days and 3 nights. They took great care of us and the breakfasts were amazing. The rooms were awesome, very clean and well maintained. The B & B also has a pool which was great for those hot summer days in Kelowna. My wife and I would definately be back for another stay.

This is just a fabulous B&B. From the moment you walk in, Claire and Kelly, make you feel extremely welcome. The room we stayed in was the Norfolk Room which was beautiful. The room was very very clean and inviting. The bed was amazingly comfortable. There is also a beautiful pool outside. The breakfasts were truly amazing, all home cooked and keep you satisfied for the rest of the day. My partner and I will definitely stay here again next time we are in Kelowna and would recommend it to anyone. I have stayed in many B&B's before, but this one was truly the best! Thanks Claire and Kelly again for a wonderful place to stay.

We found this b&b through tripadvisor and a website detailing LBGT friendly b&bs. From the moment Claire said in an email there would be a glass of ice cold white wine waiting for us we knew we were onto a winner.

The room (Devon) was well equipped and the renovated decor was very nice. We did get the glass of wine, as well as very good breakfasts. And chilling by the pool with the family was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Claire and Kelly's local knowledge also meant we made the most of our stay in Kelowna.
