I have confirmed the hotel rates for Kingdom A&S and Bardic in the Shire of Danescombe (Penticton, BC).
The Hotel is 7 blocks from the site. It is the closest hotel to the site and a lovely walk or quick drive away. There are many places to grab coffee and food between the two locations.

... The hotel can be found here:

There are three rates depending on your view and they are all for standard double occupancy:
Parkview: $94 plus tax
Beachview: $104 plus tax
Lakeview: $114 plus tax

Parking is $5 per day.

The default will be for the least expensive until they all book up and then it will go up from there unless you request different accomodations.

There are MANY hotels around the city. This is simply the closest one and we have dealt with them in the past.

To get the rates please book under Society for Creative Anachronism.

If you are flying in the closest airport is Penticton. You can also fly into Kelowna and we can arrange a ride but it is an hour away so please let us know if that is what you choose to do.

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
