Nice breakfast this morning. Eggs Benedict, home fries, coffee and juice. Tom had the steak and eggs. Over Cooked steak. Blaaaah. We are going for a little ride today just to keep the bikes from getting lonely. All we have to do is find a carwash and wash my bike. Then we both will be riding nice clean bikes. I will post a before and after picture …
Arrived in Kelowna. Checked into the hotel and off for a bite to eat. I wonder if Ogopogo will say pop out of the water and say Hi
Left Tofino early after having a beautiful meal the night before at the Wickaninnish Inn a top class restaurant overlooking the sea. We both dined on local salmon.....superb. Our travel to Nanaimo on the west coast of the island was thankfully incident free and we handed over our rental car with no damage and marriage intact. Our ferry trip to West …
Leading to our departure date, there were numerous forest fires in the Okanagan region which gets notoriously dry and hot. Entire communities were evacuated as fire fighting help arrived from Down Under. We expected temperatures to be closer to 40C, thus making the lake a welcome place. The west coast of Lake Okanagan, along which we drove, was …
Today was one of those lazy laid back days. The fellas did a little more hardware shopping and renovating. Heather stained some more wooden beams( ably supervised by myself of course) then we piled into the car and drove up Silver Star. Silver Star is 1600metres and a snow field in the winter. No snow up there at the moment but the air had a distinct chill and there were a few snow capped ...

We now overlook the pool area and Marina that must have 500 boats. They have these large houseboats. That they rent with awesome water slides from the roof to the water. Not sure how much to rent but that would also be a good vacation.

Nice lobby and location, other than that this hotel is over priced for very basic rooms. Not what you would expect from the hotel descriptions provided. The lobby is very impressive and has excellent services, but the guest rooms are very basic for the price. During our stay the main pool was dry and the bathroom in our room was plugged. We will choose another hotel for our next stay.
As for as hotels go, this has everything you need, clean, feeling like new, it can't be more perfectly situated in town, and it even has a casino (small), BUT we felt a little fooled by the size of the junior suite and the bed was the WORST we had ever slept in with no support of any kind. We woke up every morning with sore backs and necks. We knew why the jacuzzi tub was in the oversized bathroom, to get rid of the soreness from the bed. In fact the bathroom was almost larger then the room itself. The workers were friendly, the bartender couldn't make a real drink. As far as location, rating level of the hotel, and the fact that there wasn't really anything else nice around we noticed, we would still probably go back if we went to Kelowna again. Everyone should at least go to Kelowna once!
GRAND pool area...could swim for hours! The rooms are beautiful with views of the lake and pool areas. The meeting facilities are super. The hotel is so clean and looks like a castle from the outside. You'll never get bored at this hotel. Oh, the shops are really cool too... a little pricey but they have some awesome merchandise. You must check out this GRAND hotel!!
We were with another couple and found out about the lakefront 2-bdrm/2ba condo with fireplace. These condos are part of the Grand, and located alongside the waterfront. My understanding is that the hotel owns part of them, and the other part is privately owned...This option is great if you have two couples traveling together. The condo is right on the lakefront with big windows to enjoy the view and a door leading out to the boardwalk in front of the hotel. The condo itself was great. There is plenty of space for 4 people to not get in each others way or you can easily share the common areas: the kitchen, dining room and living room are situationed in the middle of the condo (all cabinets, woodwork and furnishings are bleached oak with dk green/burgundy fabrics). On both sides of this common area you'll find a bedroom with a bathroom (you don't have to share a bathroom!!) so you have a sense of privacy and distance between your rooms.One bedroom however had a bigger soaking tub which was great. The condo is contemporary in decor, but yet elegant and classy. The beds were VERY comfortable!We didn't get out to experience much of the hotel itself because whatever time we had we were outside walking around by the lake, out with the Okanagan Wine Tours sipping wine (highly recommended!!! Slamka Cellars was our favorite...) and the best part of this hotel is the SPA! Try the "la Stone" therapy or the salt glow... *aaahhhhh....*
Paradise ! reminds us a little of Mexico
We stayed at the Grand on Aug14-17 and thoroughly enjoyed the sites and ammenities the hotel has to offer. Coyotes rest. was great. The pool and hot tubs were well maintained. The standard rooms are a bit small, but the fitness centre and spa make up for those shortcomings. The area walkways and lagoon are well thoughtout and make for a beautifully landscaped property.
It was average service for the price paid
Fantastic property with all the ammenities for a great vacation. From fine dining, the spa, lakeshore strolls and the casino, the grand covers all aspects of a great getaway. It is located right downtown and close to all major venues including theater, hockey games, concerts and other cultural events. I highly recommend DJ's restaurant for some great Mexican food.
You know for the Money, you should really check out a Best Western, my friends have had weddings there, and believe me its on the waterfront of Kelowna. But, and a big but, you dont get even close to what you pay for? Sure the lagoons and a strole is nice but in Kelowna if you have to stay somewhere , heads up check out Manteo Beach Club, brand new hotel on the beach, and an awesome restaurant, (apple Grill) incredible, a little pricey, but very romantic. If you want another hotel that won't rip you off try Eldorado, the rooms are made to be like the forties. Also a very nice hotel, and an awesome , awesome dining area. Very formal so dress nicely, avoid the bar, just a bunch of old ladies or should I say cougars. Enjoy Kelowna and check out a few sites, (Silver star mountain-Vernon, very nice even in summer) , Kalamalka Lake (vernon, lake of many colors), The winery in Kelown (Mission Hill, Sunrype, Factory , and of course the waterfront near the grand) otherwise just sit back and enjoy the fruit. Have fun and trust me avoid the Grande.
This grand and elegant hotel has the most amazing waterfront promenade perfect for a stroll, jog or simply sitting and watching boats, sky, seagulls and people. Rooms are very comfortable and its always nice to have the coffeepot in-room. The view from the lobby restaurant looks out onto the hotel waterway, and out across the lake - they even anchor a seaplane right outside! The hotel has all the amenities including an impressive spa, respectable casino, and most conveniently provides a self-laundry facility for travelers who are on extended trips. There is ample parking (but you have to pay). Staff is friendly and responsive and off-season rates make this top-notch hotel a bargain!
