My wife and I joined friends and we reserved all four rooms at this wonderful B & B. To begin with we had a ball with the very dry humor of the host Steve. The property overlooks Okanagan Lake and the town of Naramata, BC. The accommodations were extremely well appointed and decorated. There is a Salt Water Swimming pool,...

We stayed for the May long weekend and had a great time. Our hosts looked after every tiny deal including putting on amazing breakfasts each day overlooking the pool. Sitting in the hot tub overlooking the lake was a relaxing way to end each day. We're definitely coming back next year. Scott H

Reviewers aren't kidding --- this hotel has everything you'd hope to find on your wine trip vacation. The views -- wow. Stunning. And there are plenty of seats and "pods" for everyone to enjoy. It was a hot time of year, so we didn't use the hot tub, but it is beautifully situated. The pool was fab. The breakfasts were...

This was our first time staying at a B & B and we were a bit nervous. We were pleasantly surprised! The rooms all had private access. We loved that we could choose to eat on our own, or venture outside and mingle with the other guests. The property is amazing. There is a pool and hot tub overlooking the...

We spent two days at Benchmark and had a wonderful time, Steve and Gail were excellent hosts and made our stay very enjoyable, from the gourmet breakfast to the spectacular view it was an excellent weekend. We opted for the special that included dinner at the Hillside winery restaurant including transportation to and from, well worth it!

Was it the pool to fall in after the summer heat of wine sampling? Was it the hosts who were funny, hospitable and genuine? Was it the great breakfasts (even though I don't eat eggs) beautifully presented? Was it the friendship of 3 other couples and the laughter? Was it that they sprayed my black car to get the dust...

We just loved our stay at Benchmark B&B! Steve and Gail were fabulous hosts, attending to our every need. The breakfast was incredible and the rooms spotless. Riding in the Gran Fondo with an early start Sunday morning, they prepared a fabulous breakfast and put it in our fridge the night before so we would be fuelled for the ride....

Benchmark has almost the perfect layout for a B&B. Guest enjoy privacy in their rooms and the sheer size of the outdoor space means you can keep to yourselves or visit with other travellers. The food is top notch and everyone is made to feel very welcome. It's a lovely spot and Gail and Steve are wonderful hosts. Take advantage...
