It is quite nice to stay in a historic building and the pub food below is also very enjoyable. The bar staff check you into your room, but are not fully equipped to do so. The hotel manager tries to insist on cash payments, which is not feasible when travelling with a credit card.

We were given a double room at the end of the hallway(206/207) They are trying to keep it authentic but wood/plank flooring in halls and rooms are a bit noisy. The doors seemed original, but one could see out through the door jamb. The toilet rocked back and forth at each use. The bathroom door had to be slammed to close, but then wobbled. Coffee supplies were good, no breakfast offered, but there are places nearby. We thought it would be noisy with karaoke on Friday and live music on Saturday, but were pleasantly surprised; never heard a thing.

Way overpriced for the dated very basic room. This should be no more than 50 bucks a night. Itnis more of a hostel than anything. Ournwindow a/c was right over a dumpster which perfumed the room if wanted a/c. Do not recommend, especially at the price point.

Can’t recommend based on the rooms we had.
The beds were uncomfortable and the rooms didn’t look like renovations were completed. The people were nice and friendly. It was a little challenging to unlock the front door with the key. One room door barely latched and the deadbolt didn’t work. Overall it was passable but we wouldn’t stay again based on the rooms we had.

Lodging was good, they don't have many things that they claim on the menu at the pub downstairs and the beer could be colder !

The Hotel is very old but they have been updating it. My room was spacious and clean, but still needed a bit of craftsmanship to clean up the bathroom. I found the price was a great deal for that time in the Okanagan. Would book again.
