Operational Update for Naramata Hospitality Limited Partnership

Naramata, B.C. – Naramata Hospitality Limited Partnership (NHLP) announces today a change in the
management company for Naramata Inn. Effective immediately, Columbia Hospitality will assume
responsibility for the day-to-day management of the historic Naramata Inn, replacing the operational
role of Hatch Hospitality, which has managed the Inn since its relaunch in 2020. Hatch Hospitality
principals Kate Colley and Ned Bell will, however, continue their strategic involvement with the Inn in
their roles as partners in NHLP.

“We welcome this new level of support,” said Bell. “Columbia brings a depth of knowledge, skill,
systems and enthusiasm that further strengthen the Inn’s foundation. Kate and I will now have the
opportunity to focus on what we do best.”

The renovation and relaunch of the 115-year-old Inn has earned both critical and popular acclaim for a
thoughtful revitalization of a local icon. Built in 1908 by Naramata’s founder J. M. Robinson, the Inn
traces its lineage directly to the very beginnings of the village. Naramata Hospitality continues to invest
in the continued restoration of the unique Mission style building, including extensive renovations of the
elegant front verandas to be completed this winter. The Inn will reopen for the season in mid-March
with some new innovations and offerings for 2023.
