“Great b&b in a beautiful neighborhood.”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

This was our first experience at a b&b and now we're hooked. Mina was a wonderful hostess. She made delicious and filling breakfast. We stayed 3 nights and each morning the table was set in a different theme. Mina is well travelled and her home is full of very interesting objects and art from around the world. She is a very interesting person with tons of energy. Her home was welcoming an spotless. We would stay again.

This place has everything you want but the flipside to that is that is well out of town. If you want to be close to downtown this is not the place to stay. You will need a car to stay here.

That said the place is in a quiet neighbourhood and is a lovely old house with a beautiful garden.

Our room was good sized comfortable and clean. The bathroom was also big and clean.

The host Mina was very nice and helpful and she makes an excellent breakfast. We also had a fridge to put some drinks in and there is a table etc out the back to chill out on.

The only thing I found strange was there was some sort of rubbish restriction as to what we could put in the bin which we found out after we had put stuff in it. Apparently you are supposed to get rid of some rubbish yourself? (and it was plain rubbish)

And then we were also requested to squeege and dry the shower cubicle each time we used it via a note that Mina had left out for us. While I understand where she is coming from guests should not be asked to do such things. After all we are guests and we are there to relax and enjoy ourselves.

This is the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Mina is a super chef and a source of lot of info she is willing to provide. I loved discussing both her garden and her menu with her. Her home is in a nice residential neighborhood that is very quiet but not far from some wonderful restaurants and wineries. Mina has only two guest room but they are very nice. Mina accepted American dollars without any exchange cost and her rates are much to low.

It's all true! All the great reviews for this B&B is spot on. Mina, the hostess is one sweet, friendly and dynamic lady. She took time to engage her guests and made great recommendations for places to eat & sight see. She even took the trouble to help print out some info for a hike we were planning to do. How she manages to find time to upkeep that magnificent garden of hers and tend to guests is beyond me.
And OHHH her homemade Breakfast, boy was it YUMMIEE!! It's the first time we were presented with a choice of menu for Breakfast at a B&B. Wished we were staying longer just so we could try her entire breakfast menu! We've been raving about this place to our friends since.
An English Rose Garden truly embodies what B&Bs should be about. Thank you Mina for your hospitality, we had the most wonderful time! Will definitely be back if we are ever in Kelowna again.

Overall, the best B&B experience we have had. We stayed in the Wicker Room which was great. The grounds are beautiful, the environment is quiet, the breakfasts are to die for (multiple courses, each one outstanding). It's clear that Myna (the owner) knows what she is doing, and loves doing it. Her hospitality is fantastic. As a bonus, her rates are among the most reasonable in Kelowna. We honestly can't think of anything to nitpick about. We will make it a point to return to Kelowna just to stay with Myna again.

Mina's meals were incredible. We were full each morning and loved all the choices for breakfast. Beds were comfortable and the outdoor sitting was perfect for evenings.

Here you become part of her world, if you want an experience where you interact with the host and feel like you are leaving a good friend at the end this is the place for you...

I booked the English Rose last minute as travelling through the area with my husband and the inlaws. The house has stunning views and a nice walk nearby, it is a easy drive to the down town and i found it very quiet..

The food is another story it was AMAZING, 3 course breakfast and we got to choose what we wanted, being the akward people we are we all had something different.
I think i was roled out of the door .... the pastries... mmmmmm and both mornings there was a different theme based on a place in the world our host had travelled too.

This would be a great place for someone who is travelling alone or is open to meeting new intresting people .......

I hope to stay again..

Room Tip: All rooms are great ....... very clean
