The Cove Lakeside Resort
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in West Kelowna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2012

We stayed at this resort in June and had the pleasure to stay there in late September when Kelowna is not as busy. We had another great time at this resort since the weather was gorgeous (mid 20's C every day) and this time we were at the back of the hotel near the tennis courts, where it was very private with a huge deck. The suite had the same great amenities and we again enjoyed the same great staff at the hotel. We also had a couple of excellent meals at their Bonfire Grill.

The Cove is great and it has problems. The housestaff is uneven yet....the servers and the wonderful chef in the 'Bonfire' restaurant are wonderful (especially Kerry at breakfast) and the breakfast whole wheat pancakes have to be the best ever. the hotel could use an overhaul and it is a bit dated but the rooms are very comfortable with terrific beds , flat screen tV's and that view. That view of the lake makes it all worth the 4 star status. The cleaning staff might not clean your table where you have left breakfast but the bathroom will be in great condition..although dated. But..overall ....you'll enjoy staying here....the issues I brought up won't really bother you unless you are a 5* snob..but then...you wouldn't be in the Okanagan and you wouldn't be booking this hotel. Lovely pool overlooking the lake and a wonderful location. A PERFECT hotel for the family.

I booked this place on short notice and was not dissapointed. I ended up getting a one bedroom suite at an affordable price and was very happy with the decor and setup of the room. There was a very comfortable bed, in a separate bedroom. On a constructive side here, they could have a larger size TV in the bedroom area. There is a large one in the seating area with a DVD player however.
The suite had 1.5 baths which was also nice.
WIFI is free, there is a nice restaurant on site, The staff was very nice.
Overall this is a very nice place and I would stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view

We spent two nights here after travelling 3000km around the Rockies and it was just the place to start winding down. Set on a massive lake the views were wonderful. The suite was a very high standard and extremely roomy and comfortable. Dining in the restaurant one evening and both breakfasts we couldnt fault this place. Dinner was a bit slow but they were quite busy and the wait person was very apologetic but did his best to work quickly whilst still providing good customer service. I would certainly recommend this place and return again.

Room Tip: They all appeared nice

We stayed at the Cove this fall with my Parents. Two, 2 bedroom 2 bath suites, Beautiful, comfortable, full kitchen, everything you could need, I would have loved to stay an entire week.

A few things to watch for when booking your rooms.
The place is very spread out with the elevators in the center, so if you are ill or older like my parents, getting a room in a more central area of the complex is a good idea. Down side to that is that the restaurant is also in the center, and at night if there is a noisy group on the patio you wont be getting much sleep.

The restaurant is great, and the Sunday brunch buffet is amazing...be hungry!
There are BBQs if you want to grill your own dinner.
This is a dog friendly property, and there are nice areas to walk.
Quick cab ride to local vineyards for dinner etc. Make sure you go to Quails Gate, have dinner, wander the vineyard with a glass of wine at sunset.

Room Tip: Central rooms are easier to access, but not as quiet.

This is a nice property, we stayed in late August 2012 for a business meeting. We had a 3 bedroom suite, the master bedroon was really nice, but the other two bedrooms were very small. The layout of the rooms was odd, there was stairs going up to an empty loft room? Looks like a condo, which has a dual function as a resort. Probally a great place for family vacations.... The rooms facing the pool and lake are quite a bit more costly than the parking lot facing rooms, which I guess is to be expected for most resorts. We had breakfast catered each day and it was very good, great coffee. The reseraunt served pretty good food, although it seemed a bit costly for the quality. Visited the spa on my stay, my massage wasnt the full hour, but it was good none the less. If you plan to visit the city of Kelowna, be aware that this hotel is about 20 minutes (or more in heavy traffic) to down town. If I was going to go back to a kelowna resort, I would likely choose the manteo or somewhere a bit closer to town.

Room Tip: Lake view is the only way to go, but you will pay extra for this.....

Just spent a week a the Cove for a conference. This is a great facility for large groups to meet, weddings, family reunions etc. Staff are very helpful. There is a full service spa on site, yoga classes, a pool with waterslide and hot tub. The restaurant food was great and welll priced. More than enough food was provided for all our meetings.The rooms contain a large living room with an electric fire place and flat screen tv, dining room and full kitchen with two separate bedrooms (more tv's) and bathrooms. Everything you need to be self-sufficient for a week or two away including in-unit laundry. If you need some exercise, there is a great walk along the beach front that is accessible by wheelchair A lovely nut farm garden walk is nearby. The hotel is quiet. We will be back again.

Room Tip: The upper floors will have a view of the lake. If you need a quiet room ask to be away from the poo...
