“Stunning reno and updated rooms”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

They have only just begun and already the renovations completed on this hotel and in it's rooms are stunning. My fiance and I had the pleasure of staying in one of the newly completed rooms and we are to say the least....Very Impressed! Modern updates combined with the accents of the heritage hotel's roots. Clean lines and enjoyable colour palate, stunning bathrooms with rain shower fixtures, and to top it off, a beautiful modern electric fireplace that creates a romantic atmosphere. Way to go Downtown Dan!

The hotel is going through renovations, however they put us at the far end of the hall away from any construction; we did not hear a thing.

Our room was great; clean, modern & well laid out. Reminded me of European chic. There were some really nice touches with the alarm clock (ipod dock), usb plug-ins for charging directly into the sockets, the electric fireplace and a fabulous shower. The bed was super comfortable with nice linens.

Unfortunately, the pub's music did come through the floor, not so much that we couldn't sleep but it was noticeable. At 4:35 a.m. I was woken up to the vacuuming of the pub and a woman's laughter who apparently was chatting with someone. My husband slept through this.

Also wanted to mention there was no elevator but I am not sure if this was due to the upgrades or that the hotel simply does not have one.

All in all, staff and accommodations were great; for a long weekend/holiiday, the value was great. We will stay again.

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a room that is not directly over the pub.

We've come here a couple of times now and it's been great service and comfortable rooms both times. The first time we were in one of the older rooms and found it very comfortable and clean. This past trip we were in one of the newly remodeled rooms and The New Grand has done an excellent job updating the rooms. Very beautiful!

The Hawg Wash is excellent! Hot and cold running water with soap and towels to get the bugs off your bike, plus a nice area just for motorcycles to park.

I stay at The New Grand Hotel every time I go to the Kootneys for work. The location is excellent as you are in walking distance to everything you need. The newly renovated rooms are small but very comfortable and the beds are fantastic.

Me and my husband stayed in room 101, recently renovated. It has stunning views even when taking a shower. The owner showed us to our room he was full of information about the town and where to visit near by. The reception staff were extremely helpful giving us advice on where to eat and drink etc. we have both really enjoyed our stay. They are currently renovating the hotel, it really will be amazing when it's completed, especially in ski season. Highly highly recommend. Visited from uk.

An old but good hotel with a great helpful staff. Rooms are small meant to accommodate a couple, it is a little dated but still has a nice charm to it. The bar and restaurant attached are excellent, really fun place to be all around.

Overall the hotel was great. It is right downtown and everything is within walking distance and it has a nice view of the lake.

The hotel was clean and everything was functional. The hotel is small and quaint. I stayed in the renovated part of the hotel, and the renovated rooms were uber-modern in a European style.

The only issue was that the renovated rooms were directly over the sports bar on the first floor. Which on a Saturday night, was extremely loud until the place closed and cleared out around 2:30 am. In fact, it was so loud in the room that I decided to just hang out in the bar until it cleared out.

Room Tip: If you don't want to be up late, stay in the older rooms which are above the restaurant side of...
