I was so looking forward to going but was so disappointed with the trip. Had to fly in and rent a car to go to this resort which us fine but expected top notch which us not what we got. The worst was our room oaid $280 per night and selected mountain view vs lake view bit cheaper. Room was fine but the location put us in the basement with the rooms fir pets. All niht for our entire stay head this very loud large dog barking. When i called to complain they said nothing they can do because we are in pet section and dogs are ok to bark all night there. Told them when i booked nobody mentioned being in the basement pet section. My wife gas mild alergy to pets but they did not csre. That was the worst stays we have ever had. Also to get to our room we take the elevator from the lobby to by the first floor then walk a very long hallway then have to take another elevator to floor -2 yes -2 into parking garage pet level. A few more issues, they have a nice Tea room bc to sit and relax after soa but have no tea just water. No cleaning the rooms ordered some appies to be in the room when we arrived which they were but nobody picked up dirty dishes they just piled up in our room for the entire stay. Some people just put in the hallway and had to walk by every day seing dirty dishes staked up in the hallways They have a nice Authentic restaurant but do not take reservations. Went there 3 times but could not get in and only open 11 till 3. First time went at 12:30 and they said 45 minute wait so left and came back and asked to put our name down and will be back in an hour as we had a spa treatment. They said no would not take our name because we would not be back in an hour as the wait is only 45 minutes but they said cone back after your spa So i did after so went back at 1:30 and they said nope now booked up till 3 and cant get us in. They said they allow people not staying at the hotel to go to the restaurant so always booked up. They should give priority to their hotel guests Will bc say the spa treatments were great expensive but great. Plus you have to book months in advance and not the nicest customer service when booking In the spa steam rooms the have a section where they have cold face cloths but 75pct of time they were out We spent $1,000 per night with our spa treatment to stay in tge basement with very loud big dog barking walking by dirty dishes piled up and with no access to their new restaurant. We complained several times about issues but nobody cared. They are good at getting minimum 20pct tips for everything Very disappointed will not be back Pic of the lobby of the floor we were on

Hotel's Favourite
We have been a few times to the resort over the years and have never had a bad experience! The hotel is always clean and inviting and the front staff are always welcoming! The room was 3rd floor Mountain View and was awesome! We had dinner with my wife’s work while up there so that was great too! The pool, hot tub and amenities were all top shelf! I also used the private jacuzzi tub for a solo beer in a tub experience while my wife relaxed watching tv on the king size bed!! Views, service and food were great as usual!!

We had a hard time talking to anyone over the phone at the spa to book appointments. Requested in-line and phoned. Finally, email worked and we booked massages! Then because of miscommunication by email… I receive a relaxation massage (from someone who wasn’t a massage therapist) instead of a therapy massage. So you pay the big bucks and can not even use insurance to help cover it. When we were there… there was hardly ever anyone at the Spa Desk. It could be due to Covid still but the customer Service wasn’t great. The Spa is nice though. I suggest booking in for the sauna and steam rooms when you get there (45min each time). The restaurants are great too! Book your dinner reservations before you go, we had to wait until 8pm because we didn’t book early enough. But have fun getting ahold of them to do so!

A birthday present with my daughter for three nights. Could not have gotten around without wheelchair. Impressive décor of millions of crystal installations. Surrounding views of beautiful Okanagan Lake were stunning. All spa offerings very continental. I enjoyed the hot pool and warm infinity pool the most. The new little Gast House offered the best food and service whereas the dining room was disappointing. Breakfast 'mussly' was cold mush, hash browns cold. We had to ask and wait for condiments such as sugar, cream, ketchup, and fill of coffee.

I looooooved sparkling hills so much until our last visit. It really has lost its sparkle “no pun intended “. 1. No longer can you visit the steam rooms and saunas in the morning. 2. The rooms could use some updating. 3. The dining options are restricted to one restaurant which was severely overpriced and not very good at all. There was six of us and we all were disappointed. I don’t mind paying top dollar for a meal but it should be top-notch. I had the duck breast with sun chokes and squash purée and some other fruity garnish. 40.00 - I received 2 slices of duck meat a spoonful of potatoes which were not fully cooked in the middle, and a thin drizzle which I assume was the purée of squash. Luckily I ordered the small ceasar salad to start. Wh we’dn it says duck breast I was assuming I would get more then 2 slices. Don’t even get me started on the lobster 2 other people ordered which looked like a prawn. The menu selection was limited- but we could live with that. We of course didn’t say anything because when you are there for a special occasion you don’t want to spoil the evening. Also it’s not the servers fault. I miss the Barrique restaurant which for some reason is no longer open. Maybe they are doing some changes but our last trip was not as sparkly as we thought it would be. The staff was great and helpful.
