“Not a "gingerbread" B&B”
Reviewed 6 September 2010

This one is a lot different from those cute "Victorian" houses that many B&Bs like to be. It's modern and comfortable, as easy to come and go and make yourself at home as any modern hotel or motel (and we have tried about 8 or 9 hotels in Kelowna). The innkeepers (Jerry and Marie) thought of everything for their guests. Breakfasts are magnificent (at times almost embarassing so), there is lots of "common rooms" to enjoy, coffee at any hour (important for us), and no curfew (they give you the combination to the front door lock), even a swimming pool. Great spot!

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The garden was lovely to sit in. Got lots of work done at the little desk. Thank you very much for your hospitality.

My major issue with this place is its location. It is 10 or 15 minutes from downtown Kelowna, then, if you plan on visiting the lovely wine country, many more miles from the better areas.

The home is lovely, the breakfasts prepared by professional chef, and the rooms are quite comfy. However, our experience here was cold, figuratively and literally. The beautiful living room (optimal seating area) was frigid, as the air conditioner was on in the house, and it was cold outside! We barely met the owners, who couldn't remember our name upon checkout, and charged us for a different room!

Breakfast was well prepared, but rather heavy.

The Grapevine is 5 minutes off the city centre of Kelowna, up on the hill. This makes it a great place to stay compared to the rather busy and noisy downtown area with the highway winding right through it. We arrived to find a wonderfully spacious, beautiful and comfortable room (the Champagne room) and since we were tired from our long day of driving, we immediately used the hot tub and the salt-water swimming pool service at the back. In our bathroom was a jacuzzi type tub which we didn't end up using and one of those showers heads in the ceiling that makes you feel like you're standing under a waterfall. Because of the septic tank, however, showers need to be limited to 5 minutes.
We had a good breakfast in the morning (we chose the continental breakfast but you can also choose a full breakfast). No internet service but in the hall is a cabinet with lots of leaflets and brochures on things to do in the area. Do also ask for the photo book (it's usually in the living room) on the big fire that raged in the area and almost wiped out Kelowna and Pemberton. There are some spectacular photos!
