“Lovely place, lovely hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful night at A Touch of English. When we showed up, Clare let us decide between the room we had reserved (Devon) and one she thought we might like better (Essex). She was right. Just like the rest of the house, it was the perfect blend of modern and traditional, with a grand king bed and a nice little sitting area by the window.

So we made the switch. Soon after checking in, we were brought a little platter of fruits and cheese--and gluten-free crackers, which was incredibly thoughtful, since my boyfriend is gluten intolerant. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. Kelly is an excellent cook and didn't seem to mind at all that we were late risers (we felt a bit guilty) and served us a gorgeous meal, complete with gluten-free toast!

It makes a lot of sense that Clare and Kelly run a b&b. They're both kind and thoughtful hosts that really seem to enjoy what they do. I'm very happy that we chose to stay at their home, rather than a mediocre hotel.

This B and B is extremely well maintained and run. The rooms are very bright and cheery..as are the hosts! The food is gourmet like and every breakfast was amazing! I would highly recommend anyone coming through or staying Kelowna to take advantage of this gem of a spot...

Room Tip: Great views from all rooms...

We have stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts in the past 6 years and without a doubt , A Touch Of English was one of our favorites! Claire and Kelly are very welcoming, efficient and make you feel like family from the moment you enter their beautiful home with drop dead views of Kelowna. Breakfasts are top notch and we were more than comfortable. Highly recommend the next time you are visiting this inviting city.

To date, Kelly and Clare's place has to be one of the best B&B experiences we have ever had.Their home is in a wonderful neighborhood of Kelowna overlooking the valley, exceptionally clean, and so comfortable. We truly felt them to be the perfect hosts...welcoming, friendly, and providing awesome recommendations for restaurants.

My thanks to both of you for extending such graciousness as hosts and for the phenomenal breakfasts. Sage and I would double the rating to 10 stars if it were possible to do so. We will be back.

My wife and I with our 9 month old Australian shepherd pup spent a great Easter weekend with Clare and Kelly. They are genuine gems of hosts and would go out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Our suite was perfect and the breakfasts were amazing. We will be staying here again.

Clare and Kelly were incredible hosts! Driving on the Coquihalla from Vancouver to Kelowna brought us to Kelowna a few hours late. They were very accommodating and provided dinner for us. Kelly's breakfast was delicious and our room was comfortable and charming. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

The hosts at this B&B were incredible. Their tips on places to go around town greatly added to our trip. Plus after a long day around town our room was the perfect place to end the night! When you don't think it could get better, you get to wake up to a perfectly delicious breakfast!
