“Brilliant location, massive room, good bar, very happy”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Frankly this was overkill for a one night stay. We certainly needed more time to appreciate all it could offer. Suite is HUGE and very well appointed. If you were staying longer the washing machine and drier could come in very useful. Well appointed kitchen with proper cooker, microwave, dishwasher and fridge. BBQ area available outside. During the shoulder season when we stayed mid-week this was incredible value for money.

Location is good too. No surprise that it is directly on the lakeside. Nice looking pool and hot tubs. Convenient for west bank wineries and not far to the bridge to Kelowna.

Menu in Restaurant looked good although we opted for the bar which provided a good evening and an extensive wine list.

Overnight they'd remodeled the reception area, the original one looked fine to us but they obviously have very high standards.

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms will be cheaper but the view is still good.

Suite is big, clean , has a great mountain view, better than expected . Central location to shopping needs and wineries. Felt like an actual resort with the swimming pools. Would have liked to stay longer.

We ended up staying for the Sunday Brunch for $33.00 each and found the value to be $13.00. Total for four with tip (small) and taxes came to $150.00 for breakfast. There was lots of choice but there was too much food for volume so found most stale. No labeling of exotic foods and placement of serving tools where not appropriate. Overall extremely disappointed in value of Brunch. Too bad that is the last experience at this resort as we were checking out that morning.

The staff that I experience where not trained very well even though they were courteous.

Four pm check-in was disappointing as the wedding we were there for started at 4. They did recommend that we could change in their public washrooms (they had stalls).

We did not let that effect the wonderful wedding and friends that we experienced that weekend. We had a great time!

The resort has major potential.

Thank you for staying with us and for following up. Your comments about the brunch have been forwarded to the restaurant for follow up. I know the restaurant wants their customers to feel they are receiving value as much as we do. In regards to the check in time, this is a standard at most hotels, allowing us to ensure your room is clean and ready to standard after the departure of the previous guests. Realizing this can be inconvenient, I am happy that you were offered an alternative.

Overpriced. In our suite there was no cutting board, no large fry pan, no pot scrubbie, no bath robes, one roll of toilet paper. When we called the items were delivered however at the price we paid I would expect there to be everything we needed already there. Upon checkout I mentioned the deficiencies and was told in a derogatory manner that most people don't look hard enough for them. The service at the bar was dreadful. Three people there and it took 15 minutes to bring us two drinks. We won't be back. Again, very overpriced.

My fiancé and I stayed here for the first time for a wedding in May. The actually resort is beyond gorgeous located right on the water. I found the service lacking very much and the food wasn't great compared to other resorts we've stayed at. Overall it's beautiful but needs an upgrade to the food and service.

I have something to say, but feel awkward posting it on-line. I was unhappy with the Restaurant service. The waiter in question, said he would offer something, but did not do it. Enough said.
If you want more details you can call me.
Otherwise, I love this place! !!!!@
