We decided to go on a last minute one night escape from fire-ridden Kelowna and came across the South Thompson Inn. So glad we did! Instead of some generic hotel-chain, the South Thompson Inn had more of a resort feel with gorgeous views, a very relaxed atmosphere, and loads of character. If you are looking for the sleek, modern hotel... More

4.5 stars??? Really folks? Get out much? This hard to find place is located a good 20 minutes of driving outside the city centre. When & if you find it, you will find yourself driving about a kilometre down a single-lane driveway. Romantic isn't it? Well not if you have to wait for the incoming/outgoing guests. The place has not... More

What does get out much mean? Are you suggesting that most of our other guests are not as well travelled as you. It appears to me you are totally off base with most of our guests and I am sorry for you that you did not enjoy our great property. We are 15 minutes from city centre Some people sure... More

A place of tranquil beauty and green spaces. The hotel, designed in a country estate style, is a beautiful landmark nestled against a picturesque river. The interior reflects the equestrian theme of the inn with interesting art. Our room over looked spacious lawns and we enjoyed breakfast on a sweeping veranda featuring wicker furniture. The reception and restaurant staff were... More

Stayed one night at this lovely out of the way hotel in Kamloops. Very nicely appointed facilities in a quiet expansive landscape. The hotel is a "ranch" on many acres of what appears used to be an active enterprise. The room was large with comfy king size bed and little sitting area. Nice balcony overlooking the South Thompson River and... More

So happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us. Glad you enjoyed the bikes. I added them a few years ago so our guests can do exactly what you did, enjoy our 55 acres. I sure appreciate you taking your time to write such a detailed review on Tripadvisor. Thank you and hope to see you again! David More

My family was out in Kamloops for a wedding and chose The South Thompson Inn because of its beautiful setting and amenities. We found the desk staff very friendly and the room and pool area very clean and well maintained and the views were lovely.

This is a classy hotel in a beautiful setting right by the river. Lovely large rooms with shared veranda. Immaculate grounds. Experience spoiled by written warning on arrival of $300 fine for smoking and no drinking of own alcohol in public. No tea making facilities. Also as a group had our meals in dark basement room

Some TripAdviser comments are easier to answers than others. I never understand people being offended by laws we are obligated to enforce. We enforce all smoking laws so to protect our many non-smoking guests. We do have designated smoking areas and also have 55 acres to roam and smoke. The alcohol rule is to protect our liquor license. We have... More

My husband and I were very dissapppinted with our stay. Although the brochure says it's only 15 mins outside the city center it's a actually a 30 min drive. On top of that google maps told us the wrong way to get there. It appeared that the hotel was right by the city and we searched for 20 minutes until... More

We have no control of Google maps and for sure not responsible for what they do. I have been mislead from Google maps in the past as well. We have contacted them a number of times to report these kinds of issues and they do not seem to care. We absolutely do not offer a bowl of cereal for $10.... More
