Amazingly fresh and delicious food, fantastic service and an interesting history makes the Quilchena Hotel the reason I keep going back. Everything I have ordered has been incredibly tantalizingly wonderful. I recommend the beef tenderloin dinner. Moist and flavourful, it melts in your mouth and is served with fresh roasted vegetables. Round your meal off with the Chocolate Stout Mousse... More

Had the opportunity to experience the Saturday night special prime rib at the Quichena Hotel yesterday. Very reasonable priced at $22 for a 10 ounce serving. Beautifully presented with mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and seasonal vegetables. The menu was varied and very reasonably priced. Everything from steak to pasta with a great lunch menu. Even the poutine was great. Unbelievable... More

We stayed in Merritt during our West Canada Trip and came to Quilchena Hotel to have Dinner. It was really the best we had on our trip! The prawns were delicious, the desserts were amazing, but the steak and the ribs are the very best! We sat in the Saloon, not in the restaurant, you can have the same menu... More

Quilchena Hotel is a beautiful heritage hotel about 20 minutes outside of Merritt. The dining room boasts fine dining with local beef and many amazing and tasty dishes. The hotel is situated right across from the beautiful Nicola Lake. Great service - lovely food and a nostalgic feeling. What more could you ask for?

We stayed here in late June 2016 and it was a very cool place. It was very nicely taken care of and very historical. Everything seemed it came straight from the 1800s. My boyfriend like it a lot and I thought it was a bit creepy (like there were ghosts all around), but that just added a cool admotphere to... More

We stopped in and found a nice variety of hot and cold selections for the Fathers Day Brunch. The food was fresh and constantly being replenished. We felt that the service was good and the price was good value. The building is unique and fun to look around at all the old pictures.

If your looking to experience some history of the Nicola Valley then this little gem of a hotel is worth a look. Stay for a drink and a bite to eat or stay the night, either way you won't be disappointed with your decision. The beer is cold, the food is fabulous, and the beds are comfortable. Cheers!
