Awesome choice to getaway for a comfortable and quiet area with a gorgeous view of the lake. Greeted by super friendly staff who is eager to help. Lovely and comfortable room with a hot tub nearby! Looking forward to visiting again in the summer to get another look of this scenic resort.

This is a great option for a get-away trip. Very relaxing and quiet. The great customer service is complemented by the breathtaking view of Kootenay Lake. Went here for an anniversary and didn't want to leave! Out door hot tub is also a great bonus and I hope I can come back when the golf course is open!

My fiancée and I had grand plans to get married in May of 2020 at this lovely property in Balfour. We settled on this location because they offer a nice balance between being able to host a relatively large gathering (160 people for us) while also being private and with beautiful views of Kootenay Lake. Brandon (Director of Guest Services) was very helpful from the first stages of our planning process and combined with the knowledgeable and expertise of on-site manager Reg we were primed for a wedding to remember, especially as the event was going to be the first impression of a lot of folks who had never been to the area. Of course, as we all know now, COVID hit and we were forced to change our plans. First, we decided to chance it out and postponed our even by exactly 1 year, and the folks at KLR were more than happy to accommodate. They honoured the agreements we had already made and so we decided to wait it out and see what spring of 2021 would look like. Fast forward to December and with COVID coming back for a 2nd wave, my fiancée and I decided that we could no longer in good conscience host a big wedding event and came to difficult decision that we needed to cancel outright. After some quick discussions with Brandon, he was very helpful and agreed to a full refund of our deposit even though we had signed a contract and were likely not entitled to a full refund. The folks at KLR took what could have had the potential of ruining what is supposed to be a special event and made a gesture of goodwill instead of being rigid in these tough times. My family and I are all quite appreciative of this and if we do end up having some sort of event or party post-pandemic in Nelson we will gladly have it at KLR. Thank you! Combine this A+ level of guest service with a beautiful venue site and KLR is definitely a fine place to hold your special events!

Hi, Thank you for your review. These are quite different times we find ourselves in. Weddings play a large part of our summers here typically, and we all look forward to wedding season each year. It was our pleasure to work with you and do the refund in full. We are here to be a part of our community and do our part to get through this time. I hope we see you and your future partner when it works. Thank you!

I have been hearing about this hotel for quite some time now and decided to go on a mini summer vacation with a few friends. I have to say, I was blown away by the beautiful views and friendly staff. From the moment we arrived, the staff treated us as royalty. The rooms are extremely clean and well designed. Being able to watch the sunrise and set over the lake from our balcony was an added bonus. For anyone reading this, I highly recommend a stay at this hotel. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and will be coming back!

One of the best days/weekends of my life happened at Kootenay Lakeview Resort! I had my wedding back in September and we are so happy we did. It was the perfect venue, resort and location to host my family and friends. AMAZING views that left everyone in awe. The rooms were immaculate and the beds were heavenly! Can not wait to go back with my wife for our anniversary or back with my groomsmen for a weekend of golf!
