Our stay at Summerland was great! We stayed in a 2-bedroom room in two couples and it was very clean, comfortable and the view of the lake was amazing. The only thing we missed was having room service and a restaurant at the hotel, but most of the hotels of the area are like this - so after getting some groceries we used the suite kitchen for breakfast/snacks and it worked out perfectly. I Wich the hotel could also accept cats since it accepts dogs, at least inside the rooms... Something to consider!
We stayed in a Lakeside 1BR suite in late October and it was a wonderful restful and refreshing holiday. The views across the lake were amazing and we were lulled to sleep by the sound of waves gently lapping on shore. The kitchen was among the best equipped for any apartment we’ve stayed in and housekeeping was exceptional. We used the small but adequate gym to work off calories from delicious Okanagan food and wine. The hot tub wasn’t explored as we had a pretty fierce windstorm sweep through over the weekend. Thank you SWR - we hope to be back
