“Touch of English Bed and Breakfast, Kelowna”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

A wonderful location in the hills above Kelowna, but only 10 minutes from downtown. We found the hosts, Clare and Kelly, so very welcoming with wonderful little extra touches eg. a bottle of champagne for our anniversary. The house is lovely with balconies all around. Clare serves wonderful scones and tea on one upon arrival. The pool is a lovely extra on a hot Kelowna summers day. The breakfast is served out on a covered patio and is a gourmet meal! A great place to stay!

We had been staying in "3-4* hotels" for 7 nights in Rome, Florence and Treviso (Venice) as part of a tour package and none came close to the comfort and hospitality we received at about B&B where we spent our last 2 nights after our tour ended. Toilets were clean and showers were equipped with powerful rain shower and hand held shower. Rain shower itself was a huge welcome relief as the other "3-4* hotel" showers were often weak and unsatisfying.

Rooms were a good size and we got one with the window overlooking the backyard which was so pretty. The best thing about the layout was the shared cozy garden and dining area which had natural light streaming in every morning (but not facing direct morning sun). It was so pleasant! Breakfast was simple comprising cereals, breads, milk, butter, juice, coffee, tea. Free access to all kitchen facilities ie oven, fridge, toaster, stove. I used the fridge to chill my fruit.

The best part about our stay was Enrica, the owner who made us feel comfortable, looked into all our needs and gave perfect explanations about how to move around from her place. She provided her personally made map which included excellent restaurant recommendations and explicitly clear directions on how to use public transport to move around from her place. It even included estimated distance of restaurant suggestions from her place ie 50m or 300m away.

Just bear in mind that this place is about 4.5km east of Termini station and you'll need to budget at least 40mins to get to the major sights. Personally, the trade off for distance vs value comfort and hospitality is a no brainer and I'd stay here again and again and again.

A very nice place, really easy to get to the center - 15 minutes by tram to Colliseus, another 10 minutes by undergraound to Piazza Spagna. All needed facilities at hand, a nice cafe with the delicious food - much better, than in some touristic places in the center. Enrica is very helpful, very caring, got all the information ready and helped with every little thing! Breakfast is enough for the morning - bakery and coffee or tea, water, apples, fridge and kitchen at your disposal. A nice little closed garden, notebook with internet is free to use. In general - great combination price and quality, the room is spacious enough for too, shower and hairdryer, tv. Thank Enrica for a great stay and highly recommended!

We stayed at this B & B for 4 nights and liked the decor of our room. Though compact for a family of 3, it was good enough for resting after long days in city centre. The owner, Enrica, was very helpful and made sure we left happy. The place is good for people on budget and if the stay is for 4 nights or more. We need to travel by tram/metro to reach the points of interest. The rooms was comfortable with wifi, good breakfast and nice little garden. The locality is not that great but safe. I will recommend this place to travellers who would like to stay in a nice place under 100 Euros with breakfast (two types of cereals, bread, cakes, one type of juice was always available). A supermarket closeby is helful for those who would like to take advantage of the kitchen.

Room Tip: Choose this place only if you are staying for 4+ days and are on budget. For stay less than 3 days I...

About B&B is overall a very good place to stay. Very modern interior, great facilities, great price, and great owner. Enrica was very helpful. Her directions and advice on how to get to the B&B were brilliant, although we did walk past the place first time as we were expecting a big sign. Actually it's just a card next to a buzzer for the appartment. The one thing that was a bit annoying was that it was a little out of town. You could usually get to termini in 15-20mins, but most of the attractions are a walk from termini, and we frequently found ourselves changing buses and trams two or three times to get home. After the first day we decided against returning home to clean up before going out for dinner as it was too much of a faff. Public transport was pretty easy to use, but the buses weren't running one day as it was a bank holiday, and on two different evenings we tried to get a taxi and they wouldn't take us that far, we didn't really understand why! Not that helpful as anyone who's visited Rome will know that by the end of the day your feet are killing!! You also have to be prepared to get up close and personal with your fellow passengers on the bus as it is a tight squeeze! For us, as we were in Rome 6 nights, the extra time and hassle for getting into Rome wasn't a big deal, but I think if we were staying for less time, I would prefer somewhere closer to town. Other things that were good about the hotel was the free wifi, the great breakfast and the cute little garden.

I've been in this b&b for 6 days. The rooms are really well furnished, the kitchen is complete and the garden outside is lovely. Bathroom is very clean and complete also. You'll find a hairdryer, small fridge, air conditioning and one TV for each bed with satellite channels.
The Pigneto zone is a bit out of town, but well served with public transportation. We stayed there because of the nightlife, but it's not as lively as we wanted - only during weekends. Nice restaurants and bars, nevertheless. Necci and Tandoori recommended.

To sum it up: great place, ok location. Definitively will stay there again!
