Reviewed 5 June 2012

Thank you Sparkling Hill for making our wedding one to remember. We booked our wedding with only 6 weeks’ notice due to an ailing family member and they helped make it happen. From the moment we booked the date they were helpful and attentive. Marlene my main contact could not have done more to make my day work out the way we wanted. The rooms are gorgeous with amazing views be it mountain or lake. The food is delicious (at the restaurant) Wednesday and Sunday schnitzels are well worth ordering. The food for our wedding was out of this world. Thank you Chef - our guests raved about the food and midnight snack. The serving staff were quick and efficient; everyone had dinner at the same time and no one was left waiting. Vanessa...who we met on our first stay ended up being our bartender and she was fabulous – she even took the time to have the staff help us clean up our personal items at the end of the night and get them to our room. We received so many wonderful comments from our guests about every aspect of our wedding and we have to thank Sparkling Hill for their attention to detail. This is a great place to take your significant other for a romantic get away; or a girls spa weekend. Well worth the $$.

The Dining Room experience is tough to beat.
The service was excellent, the food delicious and the view spectacular.
I had the hamburger which was nicely seasoned and prepared and was taken to another culinary level.
My wife had the veal and my mother had a mushroom/salad specialty.
We did not stay there but the resort and grounds are beautiful.
It certainly is a nice gem in the Okanagan.

The views are fantastic, the resort beautiful. We loved the saunas especially the salt, herbal and cold ones. We went for a hike which ended up being longer than expected because the trails could be little better marked but still beautiful. The complimentary breakfast is really good. We each had a spa treatment that was outstanding. All the staff at the resort were friendly and helpful. Now for the could be improved on part...there was a mark on the bathroom wall looked gross which I wiped off with a tissue and there was a piece of half eaten something dried out In the bedside table drawer, ewww. The room is pretty sparse so I think the housekeeping could be better. We had the chefs special for dinner at the Peak Fine restaurant, it was very good but not a lot of food for the money. Presentation was excellent. Dinner for two, a bottle of wine ($34) and tip came to $215. I have had much better meals for much less. Overall our experience was great and would recommend it.

Stayed at this stunning resort for two very short days with my husband and our 2 1/2 month old baby. The property is one-of-a-kind in this part of the world. It almost seemed out-of-place because of its modernity. My husband and I consider ourselves world travelers. Although we are pretty picky with our choice of hotels, we really just consider them 'accommodations'. This is the only hotel I stayed at that I wanted to 'stay put' and not go anywhere. Took advantage of the spa, especially the saunas. Peak Fine is a great restaurant. Excellent breakfast buffet. Dinner options just as good. Had a dinner reservation in one of the restaurants outside of the property but cancelled it after we realized it was better to dine at Peak Fine again. We knew going in that children are not allowed in the pools. This was the only amenity we missed out on but not a big deal.
