“Weekend Escape”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

After an excellent week vacation in July our family returned for a weekend trip in August. I must acknowledge the friendly staff that check-you in and lovely grounds to which we enjoy the view & time spent in the pool. As a ski boat owner it is fabulous to stay at a property that provides a boat slip and a location to park the boat trailor. We will certainly be returning next summer.

Nothing special, over priced. Hotel is not by anything, you have to drive to get anywhere. Nice pool. Beach is small. food selection is dull. Very expensive food and drinks. Staff are nice. Rooms are average

Sorry your expectations were not met when you stayed recently. Our rates are very competitive compared to the similar resort here in Osoyoos as are the prices of our food and beverage offering (comparing like establishments in the region). Our location is a 3 minute drive or 15 minute walk to downtown but Osoyoos is a small town and nothing is far from anything else. Many of our guests appreciate the location being off the Main Street (Hwy 3) as the road noise is an issue. I used to manage one of the national branded hotels in town on Main Street where both sides of the hotel had direct unobstructed lake views and we constantly dealt with complaints of road noise from vehicles and also complaints of happy vacationers walking back to their respective accommodations after the bars close at 2:00am. I can also understand the convenience being in a downtown location and having bars, restaurants and other retail right outside your door.

Overall, I just wanted to let you know we care about your experience here at the resort and we are sorry that we didn't live up to your expectations.

Walnut beach resort delivers a clean fresh resort just off the main drag of Osoyoos. Our room was large clean and fully equipped. The pool is average to small with a good amount of lounge chairs spread around for your sunbathing convenience. A few steps down to the lake shore beach front is another handful of lounge chairs. The beach is small and swimming area is enough to wade around in. This resort seems to cater to the families as there was always a fair number of children around. Just behind the pool area they have also equipped a number of large gas bbqs for your grilling pleasure. If you are looking to rent seadoos or a paddle board there is also a conveniently located rental hut just to the right of the beach. Underground parking is free. Overall a nice resort to lounge for a few days.

Worth spending the extra money for lake view . Watermark hotel is also beautiful but if you want a quieter more relaxing hotel than stay at walnut beach . Walnut beach and osoyoos is the perfect family getaway

My husband and I stayed here as a base while we checked out the local wineries, in the standard one room suite. The location was great; from here, we were able to bike to 5 wineries in just half a day. The view from the pool is beautiful over Lake Osoyoos. We like kids, so it wasn't a huge issue that the resort seemed populated primarily by young families, but it was a bit of a drag on our romantic weekend away that even after dark, the pool was full of splashing kids and pool toys - not the hotel's fault at all, but just something to keep in mind when you're planning your trip. Our room was nice and clean, but not as outstanding as I'd expected for the price - old carpeting, thin scratchy towels and decor you'd expect in a pretty standard hotel. Nothing wrong with that, but at almost $300/night, a little class and some fancy touches is nice. Having said that, the kitchenette is well stocked with any dishes you might need and very convenient to have. The service was good. Not outstanding - took forever to get service at supper time - but good once someone was available. Food at the restaurant was good - we recommend the BBQ Brie for two! Be aware - there was only one vegetarian entree option on the menu... Wouldn't hurt to have a couple more. Probably wouldn't stay here again, but no regrets that we tried it this time.

I was floored by the mold in our suite (120) and by the web of bugs that seems to have collected around ceiling corners. Many of the "little touches" were missing and made it such that there's no way I'll ever stay there again for $450/night.

We have no record of anyone notifying us that there was a concern of mold in your suite. I can assure after cleaning of our suites, a full inspection is done before it is rented out again and mold would be something we would be looking for. Although not a problem here in the south Okanagan with the dry weather here, sometimes mold can form in the grout of tile but we have only seen that occur in our steam bath and had to redo the grout to correct it (two years ago). With our south and north shore of our property being government appointed riparian lands that need to be kept in a natural, untouched state, coupled with being on the lake, the spider webs are a huge issue as they reconstruct daily. We can completely clean away webs from an area and they will be back in the same location the next day. We are aware of this issue and are always working on it.

This was a highly anticipated wine tour and relax holiday. I have been to Walnut Beach before and the pool and private beach are nice to have close…but the whole place needs a cleanup. New carpet would be a nice greeting statement and a few handymen fixing broken latches, drawers, shower doors, would help. For the price one pays a guest should be able to expect detail.

Thank you for your feedback. This time of the year, with the resort running close to capacity on a daily basis, keeping the hallway carpets looking good is a major challenge. So much so that we are looking into a composite rubber flooring compound that looks like distressed wood flooring to replace the hallway carpet for next season. Being a beach resort with every suite having kitchens and complimentary BBQs on the pool deck for guests to use, we get a lot of food and alcohol spilled on the hallway carpets. When we steam clean the hall carpets, there are no alternate routes to take inside the hotel so the wet cleaned carpets get walked on and luggage carts rolled over and wet and sandy feet on them right away and can often look worse right after we clean them than they did before we started cleaning them. Its a challenge that I hope will be eliminated with the change scheduled for this off-season. The same type of challenge occurs in maintenance with damage to rooms, furniture, walls and other items and being sold out constantly leaves us no opportunity to put a room out of order for more than a few hours for repairs. We will do the major repairs immediately but minor things will be put off to the fall when we have empty rooms to shift demand into. I had a complaint last week because we were doing wall repair in the hall ways and we had white wall filler compound patches all over place for one day (we had them all painted over within 24 hours). If I hadn't fixed the walls, what would have looked worse? We will and always have continuously performed the required maintenance and upkeep to allow our resort to garner reviews that score 4.5 out of 5 over 7 years in a row.
