This hotel has a beautiful location. Every room has a balcony that overlooks the lake. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Included in the stay is free use of the 9 hole golf course on the propery. A simple, complimentary breakfast is also included which is handy if you have to catch an early ferry.

While our day's "destination" was Nelson we decided to stay the night at the Kootenay Lakeview Resort in Balfour and I'm glad we did for two reasons.
While the resort has been described as "basic" it is located on beautiful grounds surrounded by tall trees and has a beautiful view of the lake. The room was not large, but it was clean and the bed very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony with our glass of wine to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the view.
The complimentary breakfast the next morning offered a selection of both hot and cold items and we left on our next leg of our journey well fuelled for the trip.
The second reason we are glad we stayed here was it allowed us to discover the Dock 'N' Duck restaurant which is described in a separate review.
