Travel Blogs from Harrison Hot Springs
We had a long, very long drive today. Following the Yellowhead Trail (Highway 5) into British Columbia. We can't tell much about the trip. Elles and I talked about the things in life. Quite frankly the scenery was ... green. We concluded every 50 kilometers it was still green. It became interesting about 75 kilometers before our destination. There …
Today Greg and Ryan climbed a mountain like half the day while Didi Eleanor Katherine and I went to Hells Gate. We got fudge and ice cream and but it only took about an hour. We went back home and I ate the last two smokies for lunch. Eleanor went for her nap and I was pretty tired too so I took a nap as well. When I woke up Ryan and Greg were home from ...
Started the day with eggs and bacon in wonderful sunshine. Got on the road in good time today and arrived at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery just after opening time, you can tell Mum was keen!
The winery and vineyard lie within one of Canada's most unique ecosystems which includes the northernmost tip of the Sonora Desert. The location (on a southwest-tilting, sandy plateau), is one of the most highly rated grape-growing locations in ...
... covered mountains, then a mountain of sand and huge rock slabs and mixtures of everything in between. The variety made for great stimulating scenery, but the sudden drop offs helped me keep my eyes on the road.
I had a lovely lunch with a dear old friend and a friend of hers bought us both lunch. How amazing is that!
... off on what the signs said was a moderate to strenuous 1 Km hike up to the summit and access to the Meadows in the Sky walk. The moderate to strenuous had me worried as we have been conditioned on this holiday to believe we are challenged by the easy rated hikes..however either we are so much fitter now, or maybe someone got this rating wrong as it was a very enjoyable jaunt. We practised our 'hey bear' alert calls to be rewarded with odd looks and laughs ...

Froget the Spa Hotel
We initially booked the Spa hotel - it was so bad at 7am we went to the Executive hotel to be greeted by an extremly friendly young man - "Yes, we have a room and you can check in now!" - it was 3 times the size if the Harrision Spa rooms - much cleaner and I can not tell you how much more friendly - they actually like customers there!
No choice - never again the Spa hotel - only the Executive Inn
A group of 8 ladies spent 2 nights at the Excutive Hotel while on a golfing holiday in September 2004. The room rates were quite reasonable, the rooms were clean and well maintained, and the staff friendly. Although there were some problems, such as a bathroom door that would not close completely without great effort, and the phone system did not always work for out going calls, care for hotel improvements seemed apparent, with renovations ongoing during our stay. The spa was closed while new carpet was being laid but management made arrangements for us to have day passes for the public mineral-water pool across the street. This worked very well for us.
Before I book this hotel, I have read all comments above about this hotel, some like, some doesn't. For me, it's better if I was there to see, feel, so I ignored bad comments and try them out.
I wish I had found these reviews before recently staying at the Executive Hotel in Harrison Hot Springs.
This hotel is an economic choice in comparison to the large Harrison resort. If I had to make this decision again I would opt for the more expensive resort where guests have access to five private pools. While staying at the Executive you are only able to use the public facilities adjacent to the hotel. This hotel does have a hot tub, (very dirty), a steam room, (smells odd, a small amount of aromatherapy oil would help to remedy this), a fitness room, games room and a sauna. There is also a casual restaurant that serves good food but when we were there they did not have a liquor license.
Very nice and cozy we loved it and we were all surpirised it was such a nice place. The staff were the real difference. Exceptionaly friendly and helpful. We were welcomed by a very nice lady at the desk, who made us feel at home, and gave us easy directions when we needed. She was very pleasant, and is a real asset to the hotel. Our room, a single queen, was clean and attractive. Upon our request, the housekeeper gave us extra towels. The room was quiet, good air conditioning, and the hotel very conveniently located. The people made the difference here - an average hotel with exceptional personnel. Great for romantic getaways. Definetly recommend it
Chilaxing in Harrison - CHILLAX at the Harrison
I stayed at the Executive Hotel during Spring Break with my children and we had a fantastic time. We had a great time in Harrison - the weather was great and so was the staff at the Hotel. We will surely go back and stay again. I used the gym and the hot tub and my kids played in the games room. We also had the pleasure of eating in the Restaurant and my children had a good time.
This hotel is lacking in character and the so called view.We had a king junior suite which had a sofa bed with a broken leg,mouldy caulking around the "jacuzzi tub" and peanuts on the floor around the bed upon check-in.The hot tub in the spa was a turn off,lots of dirt and soap suds,we didnt dare go in.The staff were nice upon check in but it wasnt a pleasant stay.
I saw the first review here at Trip Advisor. Looking for a change from the big Hot Springs Hotel, we booked a "Romantic Getaway Weekend" package for 2. Two nights, breakfasts, bottle of chilled 'Bubbly' upon arrival, etc.
Loved the Executive
Stayed at the Executive on Sep 2, 2003. Got a large lake view room for $79 CAD that included a refrigerator, microwave, king size bed, jacuzzi tub, plus a couch and chair in a small sitting area. Hotel was very clean and well kept up, except that hot tub needed a good cleaning, probably due to the just ended Labor Day Weekend.
Would definitely stay there again.
