This is my second time staying with Clare and Kelly in their beautiful home,and again it was outstanding. I can't say enough about how they really treat you like family and take every effort to insure you have a relaxed stay. The rooms are beautiful, and the breakfast are divine. This is one of kelowna's hidden gems and we can't wait to be back in Sept.
We enjoyed a 2 night stay at Touch of English in late December, 2014. As this was our first b&b we were not quite sure what to expect, maybe a little apprehensive even. But from the moment we got there, after being warmly welcomed by Clare, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We slept in the Essex room and it was very comfortable, in fact probably the most comfortable bed we had ever slept in! We enjoyed the gas fireplace and the champagne that was waiting for us when we got back after dinner on our first night. I had mentioned to Clare that we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary so that was a very nice touch! Kelly provided us very nice breakfasts in the morning and I would not hesitate to stay there again. So much nicer than a hotel.
Thank you both for a truly wonderful ‘experience in all ways food, the view, hospitality we will be raving about AVOTL to all we know who travel to these parts! Thank you both so much sincerely Anne and Don McGuire Halifax NS
Steve and Chrissy This is our 1st stay at your b & b but I do hope we will return to your unique haven above the lake! Really loved Steve’s breakfast this morning…. We loved the wine country such a great way to meet the locals. Thanks for the warmth and comfy bed last night we will tell all our friends about you Warmly Karen and Greg
Our second stay with you has been as incredible as our first stay with you last year. You can be sure that we will be back for a third visit. On our month long trip across Canada our two breakfasts here are in our top five meals this month. And there has been some great ones thanks again
What a gem! Outstanding hospitality and a view we will never forget. Steve and Chrissy were excellent hosts and very welcoming! Thank you for a lovely stay we will defiantly recommend you in the UK hope to visit again Lots of love Anna and Craig Manchester UK
My hubby and I spent a few nights here, before and after our wedding day...we did not want to leave!! This cute little Bed&Breakfast is so fantastic! It felt like we hit the jackpot of B&B's! Clare and Kelly were so wonderful, you can really tell that they care about their guests! Breakfast was AMAZING! We stayed in our own private suite, everything was clean, tidy and private. Our only regret was not enjoying the view as much as we should have as we were always in a rush! Even though we have family members in Kelowna that we can stay with....we will definitely be coming back, even if it's just for one night! Thank you, Clare and Kelly! You were wonderful hosts!
Thank you so much for making our visit a memorable one. You are both wonderful hosts & made us feel right at home-- so thank you again for everything--- it was a "blast"! Hope we can join you again. Also thanks for the delicious wraps & tomatoes-,we really appreciated them, Enjoy your few days "off" miss you .Love & Hugs, Helen
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights. The hosts are very friendly and the house is beautiful. We didn't have a chance to swim in the pool but it is a lovely setting. The afternoon scones were delicious as was the sherry! Each breakfast was scrumptious and different each day. 5 star!!!!
Tom and I want to thank the both of you for your hospitality and kindness. You are such a lovely couple and gracious hosts. Your B&B is something truly special, and we were very fortunate to have stayed with you. As well, we are still talking about your gourmet breakfasts we enjoyed each morning while socializing with the other guests. Thanks Steve for your yummy creations (and for trying new dishes with us), and thanks to Chrissy for helping you out in the kitchen. You make a great team!! Your breakfasts were to die for …. delicious and decadent all the way. Now we have to work on losing a few pounds! We had a wonderful time and we were thrilled to have been able to celebrate our Anniversary at 'A View of the Lake'. Our visit with you will always hold a special place in our hearts and we have lots of photos to remember our special occasion. We plan on coming back again next year to see you. Be prepared and heads up, as our next visit we hope to bring along with us 6 other people (3 couples) so that we can have Steve cook up a gourmet feast in his Demonstration Kitchen. Thank you again for such a wonderful time, and take care. Cheers, Denise and Tom
What can we say? The ultimate Scottish accolade “Not bad at all” Many thanks to both for a first class stay Fergus and Patsy Edinburgh Scotland
Warm and welcoming hosts. Lovely home with a pretty patio where Clare provides afternoon tea, fruit, and cake for the new arrivals. Tasty breakfasts expertly prepared and presented. Quiet, comfortable suite with a king size bed. Our room had an eye-catching view of the distant mountains and hills and overlooked the lovely garden and pool. Overall, an enjoyable and relaxing B&B with the extra touches that make this B&B special.
Why would you ever stay in a 5 star hotel when you can here in 6 star luxury! Thanks Steve and Chrissy for a wonderful stay even though it was only for 1 night Gerry & Sonia and Ron & Narelle Australia
your home is just about perfect and the breakfast beyond great! You are the kind of folks we love being around Thank you so much Best of everything Gordy and Diane St Augustine
Our stay was absolutely perfect! The hospitality was over and beyond what we expected and the owners were very accommodating with changing plans, the rooms were gorgeous and clean and the food was amazing!!! Beautiful views from the property. Highly recommend it ... just be prepared to visit multiple times as it is the perfect little getaway.
Visiting A Touch of English B&B was more like staying with good friends in a very posh house rather than a staying at a normal B&B. We were greeted with such warmth and familiarity and invited to make ourselves at home. The room was beautiful and set out with such a great attention to detail, from the lovely bedspreads down to the complimentary port on the side table. The evening drink on the terrace, the fantastic breakfast in the morning with home made smoothies in wineglasses and delicious home made waffles served on fine bone china all made us feel like royalty. A fantastic experience and a must-stay B&B if you are ever in the area - and worth travelling to even if you're not! My only regret is not having the time to stay longer and really enjoy all that the place had to offer.Thanks again Clare and Kelly! x
I had a wonderful time staying at your B & B in Kelowna. Your warm welcome reiterate detail to fulfill each and every guests need. Lavish yet most comfortable room and tantalizing 3 course breakfast were lovely milestone memories during my short stay. Your hospitality and seamless courtesy touched my body and soul with immerse gratitude. Your attitudes are contagious made yours worth catching XOXO I will be back Saira
This was our second time staying at A Touch of English B & B, and it will not be our last. Clare and Kelly are fabulous hosts! We felt at home in their beautiful space, whether lounging on the deck overlooking the pool and garden, having a gourmet breakfast al fresco with other guests, or relaxing in our charming room. Kelly made me delicious gluten-free waffles, which was much appreciated!
This is a lovely B&B. The breakfasts were incredible - way beyond our expectation (thanks Kelly!) And Clare went out of her way one morning to drive us to Knox mountain. They were gracious hosts who made our stay memorable.
Claire and Kelly run a very welcoming and spacious B and B, complete with beverages and wonderful freshly baked scones served upon arrival and again every afternoon. The sumptuous breakfasts are absolutely delicious. There is also a very private pool in the large backyard and plenty of spaces both indoors and out to sit and relax. The only thing we did not care for was the individual AC units in each room as they are extremely noisy. It would have been more pleasant to have central AC in the house on a hot night. However overall this is a very good choice for a B and B.
Thanks for the hospitality the rooms and especially the meals were great. You are both wonderful people Leslie Henderson Winnipeg
The View, The breakfast and the accommodation are wonderful. What sets you apart is the atmosphere you have created. Despite our short stay we were impressed with your attentive to detail and genuine hospitality Thank you Shaun and Jane Canmore
August 12th Just want to say thank you for this wonderful stay. It’s the most comfortable night we ever had in Canada. Beautiful and quite your warm and kind help really makes us “at home” it’s a pity that we can’t speak English well to communicate with you more. Hope to stay longer next time Wang Family Beijing China
My wife and I were there for one night and had the most amazing experience. We were made to feel like friends from the moment we met our hosts. The property was beautiful, the rooms were luxurious, the food was delicious and we left as friends instead of guests. We will be coming back year after year. Rick and Bri
Beautiful accommodations delicious breakfast and warm hospitality. We so enjoyed our 4 nights here and would love to come back next time we are in Kelowna. The Watson Family Ontario.
A Touch of English is so comfortable and relaxing -- it's more like a retreat than a B&B. The hosts Clare and Kelly instantly made us feel welcome in their beautiful home with its gorgeous mountain view and pool. Loved the quiet neighbourhood (it's away from the busy tourist area and lake). The food is beyond delicious: inventive and tasty. Best scones ever. Vegetarians are also very well cared for. Our room, which we had for four nights, was spacious, clean and luxurious -- and included A/C and a wine fridge. I have never felt so welcome and pampered at a B&B. A great experience and great value!
Thank you for the great hospitality we never imagined staying in such a beautiful house. With great view and amazing people. This was a very memorable vacation and experience to stay in your house. We always wish to come back Richa and Jasdeep
