  1. Small but sweet

     (4 / 5)

    Four nights rest in the centre of the village. General store across the street is the most reliable place in town. It also houses the post office and the liquor store. The bus stop is just outside the store door. Two coffee shops in town but one is open only until one o’clock. Then it converts into a very expensive restaurant. The other coffee shop is open only sometimes, when the proprietor feels like it. The Motel itself is quiet and clean but too small for a chair or desk.

  2. Beautiful, serene location

     (5 / 5)

    A big thank you to the owners for being so accommodating with our last minute changes. It is nice to meet new friendly faces! The comfy, updated rooms were all facing a beautiful central garden with big comfy chairs to lounge in. I definitely look forward to booking here again on my next trip to Naramata!

  3. Affordability in Wine Country

     (4 / 5)

    We stayed at the Village I in Naramata for 2-nights in early Aug ($149/night). It is a small retro-1950’s motel located on Naramata’s main road about a block back from the lake. It was built like motels of its era, with 3 buildings forming a u201cUu201d facing the street. What is different, though, is that what was once parking in the centre of the u201cUu201d is now a lush, grassy and landscaped area with clusters of Adirondack chairs shaded by tall trees u2013 a perfect place to savour an afternoon glass of wine (glasses provided in the rooms). There were 3 types of rooms u2013 2 small ones with queen beds, 5 larger kitchen units with double beds, and what appeared to be a couple of cabins at the end. Our queen room was small but functional. Along with the bed and its comfortable new foam mattress, there were 2 side tables, a small chest of drawers that supported the coffee maker and wine glasses with a microwave on a shelf above. There was a small wall-mounted TV and a large 3-level closet with a refrigerator on the bottom and plenty of room for clothes (and cases of wine!) above. There was no AC (only a quiet floor fan), but the windows, fan and shade trees kept the room cool on what was a hot day. The room had been beautifully renovated and meticulously maintained. The light oak furnishings and floors and white walls gave it a pleasant airy feel. Our room was on the corner by the road u2013 good for ventilation, and without traffic noise at night (Naramata would u201croll up the sidewalksu201d if they had any!). The bathroom was also small but functional with a tub/shower and a small vanity (they could loose the single-ply toilet paper, though). There were very few amenities in the tiny town (other than the 41 wineries that line the Naramata Bench). There was a general store across the road, but the only options for dining were a restaurant a few steps down the road (our entrees were poor), a pizza place and neighbourhood pub ~1 km up the road, and a bistro at the distillery at the top of the hill. In summary, while the entire Okanagan is an expensive place to visit during the summer u2013 and Naramata even more so with its selection of B&B’s and winery stays u2013 the Village I provided comfortable accommodations in a pleasant environment at a reasonable price. Recommended.

  4. This is a great place to stay!!

     (5 / 5)

    You can’t beat the location of this motel. It is beautifully kept and extremely clean. There are great seating areas in the courtyard and the owners are super friendly. Although there was no air conditioning the rooms are quite cool – you wouldn’t even know!! You are allowed to have pets here which makes this motel even more suitable for everyone. I highly recommend staying here!!

  5. Lovely place; lovely new hosts

     (5 / 5)

    We were thrilled to find a vacancy here at the last minute. This is a lovely and relaxing hotel in the center of Naramata. Quiet, unpretentious, clean, reasonable price, great location! And a short drive to the local wineries.

  6. Home away from home

     (5 / 5)

    We have just booked a trip for a second time and are truly looking forward to staying at this quaint place. The room was clean and the kitchenette had everything we needed and we felt like we were home.nThe gardens are amazing, a wonderful place to read and have a tea.nWe feel lucky that they had room for us once again!

  7. Visiting again

     (5 / 5)

    My (2.5 year old) daughter and I were back again this year and had an amazing time. We loved our room which we made home for one week – always cleaned and always had new towels. Shirley and Ulrich are so wonderful and always happy to help or for a chat. Can’t wait to go back again.

  8. A great stay at this cute little place

     (5 / 5)

    Naramata is a great place for a romantic getaway. The Village Motel has a beautiful garden to hang out in and is close to a lovely picnic spot on the beach. The room was small but had everything you could need including a fridge. The murphy bed was comfy but only because we are short-wouldn’t recommend the standard room for tall people. Thanks for the great stay!

  9. Quiet lake getaway

     (5 / 5)

    Three generations of my family have been coming here for over 20 years, since I was a kid. It is a great spot for couples or families! The rooms are clean, comfortable and come with a fully equipped kitchen. Ulrich and Shirley are very friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. The motel is close to several beaches and wineries and there is a general store right across the street. There is also a courtyard with seating, flowers and sculptures and a bbq area as well. Highly recommended – we can’t wait to come back next year!
