I visited Sparkling Hill Resort in the summertime. The resort itself is on top of a hill and is gorgeous and impressive. I wasn’t super impressed with our Mountain View standard room for what we had to pay for it, over $200 a night. But there was nothing wrong with it. The spa was quite impressive as well! Loved the cryotherapy rooms. Loved the saunas. And I loved the outdoor infinity pool overlooking the lake!! I would say if you’re the “go” type person, it’s not really the place for you. We got a little bored but did find stuff to do outside the resort and nearby. Predator ridge golf course, many wineries, and the Lakes and beaches were the most fun. But if you are into spas, and relaxing all day, this is the place! The spa treatments are all at extra cost. So it can really add up. The restaurant had great dinner and dessert options. Other than dinner though, we preferred to eat off resort.

I have been to Sparkling Hill several times. The spa services are always top notch and I have no complaints. If you get the chance I recommend the Cryo Sauna...-110 Celsius for 3 minutes but you do feel fantastic afterwards. For management - listen up. I stayed 2 nights and I ate at Peakfine both evenings. On Tuesday I had Roasted Carrot Gnocchi followed by the Beef Tenderloin and completed with the Banana Toffee was all fabulous. On Wednesday I had Roasted Butternut Squash Harvest Salad followed by the Chicken Carbonara and finished with Mocha Coconut Bar. The salad was good and desert was too though a bit too hard - but the flavor was wonderful. The chicken carbonara was boring and lacked imagination - even the presentation was dull. It wasn't awful, just not the same quality I am use to. Having said that later Wednesday even I ordered a chicken quesadilla from the lounge to have as a snack in my room later in the evening. Flavor wise it was very good but the biggest turn off for me was biting into chicken cartilage and bone. Obviously you can't see that in a quesadilla until it's too late. Not sure what was going on in the kitchen but that seemed like a very amateur mistake. Otherwise I noted some housekeeping issues. The seat covers in the Tea room are in dire need of a washing. There were also a lot of scuff marks on the doors and walls on the guest room floors that should be cleaned up. I would not say the outdoor pool was dirty though there was a lot of silt in the bottom and it was obvious it should have been vacuumed before opening, but wasn't. I still love Sparkling Hill even if I seem tough in my assessment. I expect perfection when I go there because I know they normally hit that target,

This resort is beautiful. The wait staff were awesome. The room cleaning is very poor and comes around 4-5 pm. We had wrappers all over the door from candy when we arrived and no vacuuming to clean them the entire 4 days. Cups not cleaned or replaced. The breakfast was fine but never even close to hot. We had a wonderful time and great spa treatments. Love the infinity pool with snow falling on you! We did mention to front desk about room and then returned to give our room number as she didn’t ask! This has such potential but for the money, it should have more “ polish”.

Sparkling Hill is a spectacular setting if you are looking for some peace and quiet. The pools and saunas, along with the hotel itself are all beautiful, the pricing is very reasonable and the views are really nice. It is an amazing place to unwind. Our only disappointment/feedback is the dining service (outside of breakfast which was fine). We've been twice and were underwhelmed. Our last meal, the rack of lamb was one single chop and another gristly piece of meat that was not rack of lamb. Chicken was dry and overcooked or left on a hotplate for too long. Room service, even for a single dessert, comes with a $10 delivery fee. Most people visiting don't mind paying but the perception of quality and value should be improved. Overall we will be back for sure as this doesn't take away from the quality of the experience - the reason we go there is to relax. Might suggest doing dinner elsewhere, there are many top notch restaurants nearby at the local wineries and elsewhere that are 20-30 minutes drive away.

Definitely one of the nicest hotels/resorts in BC. Stayed 2 nights here in a lake view room and the service, facilities and the restaurants were all A+. A picture says a thousand words, here are a few:
