Kelowna hotel recovering quickly from high season restaurant dash

Expect to see a familiar name take residence in the Best Western hotel's restaurant space.

Until Aug. 11, the dining area at the arguably greenest hotel in Kelowna was occupied by ORA.

However, without notice, they left throwing a wrench into operations.

"It's unexpected from the hotel standpoint," said general manager Rosemary Paterson.

"We're working quickly to have another operator in there."

By next week Paterson said they should have the pub up and running, and the restaurant should follow suit in early September.

Although there is a new lease operator ready to move into the space, there's some paperwork to be completed before Paterson  could reveal the new tenant.

As for loose ties from ORA's departure, there are very few.

The staff at the restaurant didn't suffer from the seemingly swift decision to leave town and Paterson pointed out "nobody was out of pocket."

The only remaining concern is for those who hold ORA gift certificates.

For those individuals a refund will be available. To get it, call 604 575 0006 ext. 102 or 106
