I am drawn here annually for my holiday. I come for the warm weather, the cycling along hwy 8 and mountain roads, the morning view over the river and the tasty nutritious homemade breakfast. I come for the overall atmosphere, and the chance to have sincere small talk with real people and families - both local and other travelers and... More

All of my stays here have been awesome! I love the building and I love the owner. It's got history and it's own personality. It feels more like an extended family's place than an business. The food is wonderful too.

You can't help but like this place. It's comfy, welcoming and clean. We arrived on a boiling hot day en route to the Cariboo. Our room was clean, cool and comfortable. As others have said, if you want the Four Seasons, don't stop here (in fact, don't stop in Spences Bridge) but we were so pleased with the care, concern... More

Do you like character and small-town charm? The Inn at Spences Bridge is clearly a labour of love. The owner/manager has taken great care to restore the historic road house. He is a friendly and welcoming host. He has always made an effort to accommodate our needs, including the times when we brought our geriatric dog along with us. The... More

Interesting place, interesting history and interesting location. Admittedly, it is near a main line railway track but I did not find that troubling. I had a nice room overlooking the river. The room and onsuite bathroom showed that a lot of care had gone in to restoring a very old building. The owner/manager/bottle washer is an entertaining and knowledgeable guy.... More

I am sorry for the people who can't appreciate this historic inn for the beauty of the setting and the eclectic nature of the building. No, it's not a chain hotel, with every room being the same, sterile accomodation. It's old, the decor is outdated, there are trains. But look past all that. Our room, Zen, was large with a... More

Very pleasant service, friendly staff, simple. In a place that is 150 years old like the inn at spences bridge you really cant be expecting tvs in the rooms or anything you might find at a newer hotel. Instead gear your mind to that of an old building, the basics, and the same feeling you get when staying at your... More

We did not stay here; we only dined here. There was so little a available on the long drive from Hope, BC to Kamloops that we were happy to find them open and serving dinner. This is a very high character place, so set your expectations accordingly. There is some clutter and aesthetic dissonance, but nothing the health inspector would've... More

the Inn looks ok on the outside. I think all of the renovation love has gone here first. the inside is a different story, creaky old floors with 60s era dark brown carpet, dark funny smells and our room and furnishings were pretty old, but not in the charming antique kind of way way. I didn't trust the colored frilly... More

I wouldn't have stopped but I was on my own. Two wheels were turning, my big motor was burning, the pretty girls were long behind me. 1400k since noon. I was exhausted. Besides, I had already slowed as always, for the railroad-crossing-road-side commemoration of a fatal alcoholic, motorcycle crash. It was dark. The place looked abandon. But the neon word... More
