“I was asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013 via mobile

Our stay at A Touch of English B&B was our first Bed and Breakfast experience. What an amazing stay it was. My husband and I were greeted by a very upbeat and welcoming Clare. She made us feel very welcome and explained to us the ins and outs of B&B'ing. She served us freshly baked scones, local fruit and afternoon tea on her deck, which overlooked her pool, beautiful property and mountains in the distance. We soon met her husband, Kelly. He was also very nice and welcoming.
Clare helped with recommendations for dinner, beaches to visit and local events (farmer's markets etc). We took advantage of the pool a couple times on our one night stay. It was very clean and had great scenery. The room was very beautiful, clean and had a very comfortable bed. The tv in the room is a nice touch, although I was asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. :) In the morning, I went down to the deck to read and catch some sun. Clare served me coffee and scones since my husband wasn't quite awake for breakfast yet. Clare and Kelly were very laid back. They served breakfast whenever you were awake enough and hungry. To quote Clare "we serve breakfast when we see the whites of your eyes." Kelly's breakfast was very delicious and featured fresh local fruit (it was peach season...mmm), homemade waffles and a yogurt parfait.
Clare and Kelly are such a nice couple, we will remember them for quite awhile. On our drive home we had already talked about staying there again, but for more than one night!

We stayed at a touch of english with my girlfriend and the rest of her bridal party before her wedding in Kelowna. I have to say that this was our first time at a bed and breakfast and we have been hooked! Clare and Kelly graciously let us take over their home and as a group we had an absolute blast with them! the house is so well taken care of and the rooms as absolutely stunning, and the beds are so comfortable! next to the incredible service and even more amazing food is the awesome backyard and pool. you feel more than comfortable hanging out by the pool all day in the hot Kelowna weather. Needless to say, we will be planning a trip back to Kelowna just to stay with Clare and Kelly for the weekend!

Clare and Kelly are experienced hosts with special knowledge of the area. Kelly's the gourmet chef and Clare the whirlwind of personality. Each room had a new Samsung air condition unit ( window/ floor type) which worked well in the heat of August. The bottom room was spacious with a full kitchen and patio. the large pool was a great relaxer after a full day of exploring the wineries of the area. Kelly's Breakfasts were outstanding with fresh fruits, yogurt and granola, homemade cakes and pastry. Lastly, a memorable English morning meal was served that was special. The whole experience was first class, even Toby the well behaved cat made it's appearance and then disappeared.Very enjoyable.stay.

We decided to book at A Touch of English a few months in advance, having never tried a Bed & Breakfast. Travelling only from Summerland where we were staying for a wedding, we arrived three hours earlier than check-in. Instantly, we were greeted by the most energetic and friendly English women, Clare! She allowed us into our room early, making us feel extremely welcome, even though we had caught her off-guard.

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved everything about our stay. The rooms were all re-done and extremely clean. We had our own upgraded bathroom and towels for the shower and the pool. The back yard was beautiful with brand new patio furniture and pool loungers. There was plenty of space to entertain many guests and to seek privacy to read a book or enjoy the sun.

The pool was a perfect temperature as it was heated and kept impeccably clean. We spent many hours swimming and lounging alongside the pool – which made for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Breakfast was sensational. Clare was the perfect hostess, serving us amazing breakfasts of which her husband Kelly created every morning- his eggs benedict and waffles were to die for!

A touch of English was also very close to downtown Kelowna, where we were able to drive to for dinner in about 10 minutes.

We had an amazing time at this oasis and will DEFINITELY be coming back as soon as possible!

We loved the place!
Clare and Kelly are amazing hosts! Looking forward to seeing them again!
What an amazing breakfast! It wasn't just a breakfast... the food just kept coming... it was gourmet!
The room was fantastic... Extra large King sized bed! =)
I have already recommended it to people I have spoken to!
I will definitely be back! I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Kelowna. We almost stayed in a Hotel for twice as much (but it wouldn't have been nearly half as good).

Room Tip: The extra sized Kings in the rooms with Kings are great!

Your visit was so short and I know we both wished you could stay longer, it was a joy to meet you and talk about vacation trips in Mexico :) Hope to see you again maybe in the fall.

Thank you for your review, never before have we had so much fun with such a large amount of guests, your friends visiting other Bed & Breakfasts and family from China. We thank you for inviting us to your dinner on the patio and all the conversations in broken English and the small amount of Chinese that we know. We definitely need lessons :)

Clare and Kelly are wonderful hosts! The rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. We really enjoyed having tea and scones when we arrived after a long drive from Edmonton, and of course the breakfast was delicious. We would definitely stay at A Touch of English again!
