The Lakeside Resort story

Our hotel has been an integral part of Penticton’s coast line since 1982, when it first opened its doors to international arrivals, Canadian travellers, and local British Columbians. It wasn’t until RBP Hotels took over as owner in 1996, however, that our hotel truly became one of B.C.’s best resort destinations. Along with new owners, came a complete facelift for our hotel. From 1998-2008, the Penticton Lakeside Resort saw many changes including the completion of our fountain and parkade, and expansion of our conference centre and restaurants.

To keep things exciting and fresh, we’ve introduced the new Bufflehead Cappuccino Bar. We also opened our brand-new West Wing building in August 2017, introducing 70 more luxurious rooms and suites for our guests. We are a LGBTQ2S+-friendly hotel that prides itself on providing unique and quality services to guests during every moment of their stay.

We want to take your hotel experience from fine to great.

The breathtaking scenery surrounding Penticton and Okanagan Lake is just the beginning of your unique vacation experience at Penticton Lakeside Resort & Conference Centre. When you walk through our lobby doors, you’ll be introduced to not only our three private restaurants and clothing boutique, but also given access to our private beach and marina on the Okanagan Lake, open only to you, the hotel guest.

Our amenities go beyond just your basic pool and hot tub. We make sure to provide all the amenities you could ever need during your stay in Penticton so that you can explore B.C.’s beautiful Okanagan valley like a local. You’ll find electric car power stations in our parking lots when you first arrive at our hotel. We have a hair salon, business centre, gym, juice bar, ice rink, and water sports available. All of our rooms have either mountain or lakeside views of the Okanagan landscape. As for dining? The majority of the fresh produce served at the Hooded Merganser is grown on our very own Valley View Farm, located less than 7km from the resort. We also have our very own herb garden right on the property!

We strive to provide you with a quality guest experience and we hope 30 years of innovation, inspiration and tweaks have delivered on that promise.
