“location is the reason to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

Its all about the location for the Leland Hotel. The patio overlooks the lake and the view is almost wrh the price of admission alone. The rooms are odd in configuration and the amenities are a bit worn. An example would be the clock radio in my room was from the 80's and wouldn't recieve any radio, but the buzzer worked. You have to remember this is a 100 year old hotel that's gone through several renovations. The beds are clean and comfy. The food on deck is average. The "we'll charge more and call it upscale" resturant is a bit expensive, but then one has to realize where you are. Nakusp is an out-of the-way town. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. I've been coming to Nakusp a couple times a year for the last 8 years and stayed in several other locations. There are nicer more generic hotels available. I tend to come back to the Leland for the character it brings and the hospitality the hosts show.

"Quaint" might be a good word to describe the Leland. "Good value" not so much. For a total of $100 a night, a phone, or alarm radio, or a second chair in the room would have been nice. The view from the room was beautiful and apparent VERY early in the morning as there were no shades on the windows. The bathroom amenities were minimal, however the room was clean and the bed comfortable. The price is simply too steep when compared to other places we stayed at on our trip.
The meal at the restaurant was delicious and the atmosphere on the deck overlooking the lake wonderful.

This is a lovely old hotel on the lakeshore. I paid a premium for a room with a view — $100 CDN — which is a bit steep. Upgrades to the building have not been of the highest quality. In fact, some of the work that had been done in my room was pretty awful. But I found it quite comfortable, despite the sound transfer from guests walking around in the room above. The restaurant has a nice patio and dinner was OK, but nothing special.

Booked 1 night stay here based on photos on their website (it looked quaint and had a gorgeous view).

Building is quite tired as are rooms. Washroom had an odd arrangement: had to step up to what felt like a closet with a window. Washroom had an accordion partition with magnet to keep it shut rather than a customary door. Windows have tied back sheers rather than drapes/blinds (including the one in the bathroom).

Had a bar downstairs and even though my room was not directly above it, could hear it until late at night (stayed on a Friday night).

Having said that, the view was beautiful and have no complaints about the restaurant.

Stayed here as a stop off from Rockies to Okanagan. Idealy located, Old tierd room but very clean, spacious and had fantastic view. Well worth the $79+tax. Our room had fridge apparently room without lake view also had small kitchen.
Dinning room and bar looked busy but we did not use them as arrived in evening with baby.
Bar was open till 1am and I heard a bit of noise at closing but nothing bothering just people talking and leaving.
