“Good service, lakeside location”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We stayed here for two nights on our trip around the Okanagan. Helpful and friendly check in service. Room was good sized with separate bath and shower. All the usual amenities.

The Hotel originally stood a few mile up the lake. It was transported by barge to the current location only to burn down! The older looking part of the hotel was rebuilt in the style of the original and contains antiques and heritage items. Rooms in this wing command a premium. The newer wing where we stayed is fine but doesn't have the character of the restaurant or the public areas. Thus four blobs.

Restaurant here was very good. If you avoid the burger and pizza options on the menu you will discover some cleverly crafted and very tasty dishes and not surprisingly a good local wine list.

It is a way out of Downtown and we could only find one other restaurant and coffee shop within walking distance.

Room Tip: Hertiage rooms have character and premium price. Other rooms are fine but a little bland.

We stayed at The Eldorado for 3 days May long week end for a beautiful "Roof Top Wedding" . Fantastic view, great setting very friendly and helpful staff!! Although the weather could have been better the staff supplied blankets to keep us warm for the ceremony the reception and food on the 2nd floor was also
great.Our room was very quaint and clean, water view, coffee maker and fridge. Turning down the bed each night was a nice touch!!

Room Tip: Comming from the prairies it's worth the extra to get a water view

We stayed at the hotel Eldorado for 3 days in May. We stayed in the older part of the hotel in a room with a balcony facing the water. The room was very quaint and clean. Lots of character. We had dinner there each night and the food was excellent. The service was impeccable. The view from the dinning room is amazing especially when it's warm enough to open the windows. It's a very special place and we will be back in September!

We booked as part of a wedding group price of the room wedding rate 180 Dollars and then all the taxes 4 lots of taxes.The price of the room came to 240 dollars for one night. The room was in the heritage part of the hotel,no fridge,no coffee make and the most important now mirror to check how we looked when we where dressed. Just one little mirror over the sink. We did have a balcony overlooking the water, but with no coffee maker or fridge there was not anything to enjoy.The price of drinks in the bar for a soda water and one beer 11dollars docents. On the positive side the reception girl was excellent, and the master of ceremony .The breakfast was advertised in the room as seven dollars 50cent. We ordered two breakfast they where 13 dollars each and extra for the coffee.

Room Tip: I could not help anyone make this decision. I would not stop there again Certainly not value for mon...

Classic Okanagan! Love how they've done a modern reno of this heritage hotel without losing its charm. A must in the summer - drinks on the patio by the lake - from their excellent local British Columbia wine list.

Excellent hotel located on the banks of Lake Okanagan. Rooms have a real country charm and are extremely well appointed.

Hotel is a bit of a distance from the central area but only a 5 minute drive. Could be an issue without a vehicle.

The Sunday morning brunch is amazing.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hotel Eldorado has been part of BC's destination hotel resort experience since 1926. It is a story of Austrian blue bloods and thrilling vacations, a story of a famous honour bar and Olympic rowers, a story of London cabs and dog shows. From the beginning, it has always been a story of unique hospitality, social events and a welcome that knows no borders. It was then what it is today; a singularly unique social and vacation experience set in one of Canada's most spectacular destinations, the Okanagan Valley. 300 kilometres from the Lower Mainland in the BC Interior and an easy flight from all major airports, the Hotel Eldorado is located on the shores of Okanagan Lake. For those who have travelled in other countries, you will recognize that this place is one of the most scenic in the world. The Hotel Eldorado is as storied as our town and all those who have graced our doors since 1926. It is a gem and we all look forward to welcoming you to The El. ... more   less
