Prestige Lakeside Resort

Nelson, Okanagan

The hotel

Yachts bobbing in the marina; calm ripples on Kootenay Lake; the Selkirk Mountains’ majesty, quaint Heritage Streetcar #23 stopping just outside: the views from Prestige Lakeside Resort are nothing short of eye-catching — although it does a top job of diverting your eyes back to its own attractions too. There are complimentary bikes for exploring the beautiful heritage town of Nelson, whose downtown zone’s just a stroll away. There are free beach toys and board games for those lazy days and evenings. There are kayaks and paddle boards for messing about on the lake. There’s an indoor pool, hot tub, and spa for pure relaxation. And there’s the casual coffee and muffins of Juniper’s Bistro, Asian-fusion food of Yesaki’s Wine & Raw Bar, and waterfront patio of West Coast Grill, which reunites your eyes with those exclusive yachts.

The location can't be beat, right alongside the marina of Kootenay Lake in Nelson. Rooms are very nice, clean and spacious. Ensure to book lakeside room as otherwise you're overlooking the parking lot. We were on the main floor lakeside and shared a beautiful grassy area right next to the boardwalk.

The location can't be beat, right alongside the marina of Kootenay Lake in Nelson. Rooms are very nice, clean and spacious. Ensure to book lakeside room as otherwise you're overlooking the parking lot. We were on the main floor lakeside and shared a beautiful grassy area right next to the boardwalk. We had a little sitting area with 2 chairs and table on the patio and then lounge chairs along the grassy area. Also convenient location as you can walk to the beach (about 20 min by foot) and 15 min walk Downtown. There's a neat micro brewery just 1 block from the hotel. Staff were all very nice. Did not eat at the hotel. They give you a $10 voucher for their restaurant at check in as there's no house keeping during Covid. Rooms are over priced but you pay for the location. Read less

Great hotel with great staff. The location is very convenient and close to downtown Nelson. It's also fairly close nearby towns if you want to go for a drive. Lots of good places to eat within walking distance.

Always exceptionally clean rooms and great overall experience including the restaurant staff. Definitely my favorite hotel in the province of BC. Management has this team working together and on the same page. Well worth the few extra dollars in my mind.

Located on the shore of Kootenay Lake, there is a great lakeside path for you to walk or Streetcar 23 just outside the Front door you can ride. Spent 2 nights here in a lakeside king room. Definitely recommend a lakeside view room. You’re able to walk to the downtown core and historic Baker Street. There’s a shopping mall a short 5 minute walk… Read more

We spent two nights at the Prestige Resort - and fell in love with Nelson. We stayed in a king room with a lakeside view ... and from the remarkable pillow-top mattress to the modern design/colour palette of the room, everything was perfect! We will return!!
