My parents and I stopped at A Touch of English for one night on our way to Vancouver and we definitely wish we could have stayed longer. Clare and Kelly could not have been more gracious. We were about half an hour early for check-in but were welcomed and shown to our suite immediately. Initially when booking, I was a bit concerned about having to book two rooms since it is stated on their website that the maximum capacity for each room is 2, but fortunately their suites can fit 3 (two in the bedroom and one on the sofa bed). We had the Berkshire suite and it was very spacious, comprising of a bedroom, living room, and huge kitchen. The suite can also be accessed directly from the outside (we did not need to go through the house every time we needed to get something from the car). Outside the living room, there was also a lounge area with a sofa, table, and grill, as well as a set of stairs that led directly to the pool. The water in the pool was so clear, we wished we had remembered to bring bathing suits with us. Breakfast the next day was eaten on the deck where we had wonderful views of Kelowna. We were each given a huge fruit platter and a plate of cherry crepes. It was delicious, incredibly filling, and a fantastic start to the rest of the day. If we are ever in the area again, there will be no doubt as to where we will stay. Thank you Clare and Kelly!!

This was the first time my wife and I have ever stayed at a bed and breakfast and our experience far exceeded our expectations. Both Clare and Kelly went over and above. The breakfasts are incredible here.

This was our first time in a long while staying at a bed and breakfast. My wife and I were very pleased with our stay. Our hosts were so hospitable! From our arrival to our departure Clare and Kelly were very present and accomodating. We arrived in time for afternoon tea. Fresh baked scones and other treats were served along with hot tea! What a treat! If you can, make it a point of being there at least one afternoon to enjoy this. We stayed in the Norfolk room. Very clean and well decorated. All required ameneties were there, from fridge to Sherry! Itbwas a hot day and Proper care had been made tomcool down the room for us in advance. Lots of attention to detail here. It wouldnt be a Bed and Breakfast without breakfast and oh what a joy it was. Kelly cooked up some wonderfull meals and Clare's baking is second to none. The other guest were very charming and we had great breakfast conversation. This B&B is tucked away in the city but well worth the travel!

We enjoyed afternoon tea when we arrived and loved the delicious breakfast each morning.. An appreciated feature was the use of the pool to cool off and relax.

This was the first B&B experience I've ever had, and it was an amazing one. Clare and Kelly are the most hospitable and accommodating people, and have an incredibly charming place situated in a very convenient location of Kelowna. I came here with my best friend who was visiting me from NY, and we both had a lovely time! We could not have asked for anything more... I will definitely be back in the future!

Stayed for one night as part of a business trip and had the best sleep in recent memory. Clare and Kelly were welcoming and attentive hosts, greeting me with tea and scones when I arrived. The breakfast was superb, with masterful attention to every detail. A beautiful home filled with love and warmth. I'll be returning.
