“Amazing stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2012

The hotel and surroundings are beautiful! We were here for a wedding and we had a blast! The rooms we're clean and the beds were a dream! Even the murphy bed! The kitchen had all the things we needed for a few small appys we made! Our room, even though closer to road side still had a beautiful view of the lake! A lake front room would blow your mind! The hot tub and pool we're nice and the beach area was great too! We were here in september and it was gorgeous! Can't imagine how great it would be in the middle of the summer. Theres a very nice restaurant on site! We didn't eat here, just had a few ceasars but the food did look good!
Theres a marsh with a boardwalk that was nice to walk along and cool "yacht club" just on the other side! It was fun to go look at all the boats! We had the rehearsal dinner in the outdoor BBQ area which worked out great!

The only small complaint i have is the hotel staff were not as helpful! They were a little stuffy when we checked in. And we were "enjoying" ourselves at the hot tub at night with the wedding party and at 10 o clock they literally kicked us out like we were teenagers. (my 88 year old grandma was with us)! Would have been nice to be treated like adults its not like we were doing anything wrong, we just didn't realize it was closing time!

Other than that it was amazing! If you're looking to do a wine tasting vacation this is definitely the place to stay! Lots of amazing wineries! (Bonitas, dirty laundry) I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it!

Room Tip: ask for a lake front room! WHAT A VIEW!

My boyfriend and I spent the Easter long weekend at the Summerland Waterfront Resort & Spa and could not have been more impressed! The room was very clean, comfortable and modern, the little closet kitchenette was a nice touch and the view from the balcony was gorgeous. The service was excellent and the staff were so friendly and helpful. We were lucky enough to have nice weather that weekend and enjoy the pool and hot tub as well. This is probably strange to say after so many other positives, but the highlight for me was THE BED! This was the most comfortable bed I have ever had the luxury of sleeping in. I very rarely get a full night's sleep, but I slept for 10 hours straight the very first night! If you ever need a good night's sleep, just go to the Summerland Waterfront Resort and your wish shall come true! You simply MUST try this bed - I swear you will dream about it long after you've checked out! I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking the water. You can't beat enjoying your morning coffee...

I rented a two bedroom, as i was travelling with my son, wife and grandchild. It was more than perfect. With a family, there was a washer and dryer in the room, two bathrooms, small kitchen with pots and pans, silverware, dishes everything you need, a living room with gas fireplace, kitchen table and four chairs, three tv's, dvd player. Also a very large outdoor patio with a table and chairs. If you didn't want to cook a very nice restaurant there. A small cafe in hotel reception area for breakfast. The views were wonderful. I would go back there in a minute.

I'll try to be somewhat orderly in this review:

Location: The resort is located directly on Lake Okanagan and is wedged between a bluff and the water. However, being on the water in Summerland means you have to drive for any stores or restaurants (save the one on property)....the area surrounding the resort is completely residential and quite beautiful.

Property: It has two small beaches, neither of which is that good compared to one you can walk to 10 minutes north. The building and amenities are quite new, and everything is comfortable. The rooms are condo suites, with a full kitchen and a balcony. It's hands down the best stay in Summerland, and great for families as even the 1-bedroom condo suites have pull-outs and Murphy beds to accomodate more sleepers. There's a small bistro for lite-fare and the best restaurant in Summerland is located here.

Service: Good. We were there the week after labour day when the season was winding down, but there are plenty of staff. Some of the front counter staff are fairly apathetic, but the guys down at marina are fantastic if you want to rent anything.

Pets: Go ahead and ignore the 101 rules they have if you bring a dog with you. This place bills itself as pet-friendly and likely accrues business as a result. You can't win customers by promoting yourself as dog-friendly then give a '1 do and 101 don'ts' as soon as they walk in the door. Just be responsible with your pet.

Overall this is a solid pick in Summerland. I'd stay here again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Go top floor; this is a wooden structure and there are a lot of kids, so expect to hear a lot of ban...

A friend and I stayed in a 2-bedroom suite with a partial waterfront view on a Saturday night and the location and facilities were excellent. The beach is small but private and scenic and the location is beautiful with views across the water to Naramata.

The rooms were clean and comfortable and even though there was a big wedding going on all afternoon and evening, we were never disturbed by the noise. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat and would look for an extended trip next time.

Stayed here during the Pencticton Ironman as Summerland is only a 10 minute drive from the event. We had a 2 bedroom 1 bath ground floor unit in the "quiet" building, away from the pool. 4 adults, 2 children and we all fit in very well. The location is excellent, the beach great for the children, the walking trails ideal. And the hotel is dog friendly. Accomodation was clean, modern, and well appointed. We ate one meal at the hotel and probably the best breakfast/lunch we have ever had. The corned beef hash with poached eggs was magnificent. Would have had more meals there but it was fully booked. We never heard any of our neighbours. A great family resort.

Room Tip: Try a corner suite in the quiet building if you need more relaxation, away from the pool.

Friendly Staff accompanied by a relaxed atmosphere made for a very nice week of sunshine and hanging out with friends. I was particularly impressed with the press coffee in the rooms. One of the better in-room coffee's I've ever tasted. Only negatives are: 1) very limited parking especially if you have a Thule on your vehicle. We had to park on the street 2) The restaurant staff need a lesson on customer service. The restaurant is not affiliated with the hotel, so does not affect my ovedrall rating of the hotel.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.
