A great place to stay. Clean, well kept, spacious rooms with lovely decor. Hosts were very gracious, helpful and knowledgable about the area. We spent time here on two seperate occasions in the last month and booked it for some family and friends for accomodations while attending a wedding. The breakfasts were wonderful and Toby goes all out to make sure you are well fed and happy. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Relax and enjoy!

My wife and I stayed at this B&B and we really enjoyed the experience.
Our room was clean and most comfortable. The view from our room was spectacular and the hosts made us feel at home.
The breakfast in the morning was excellent and nutritious.
Salmon Arm was a new destination for us and definitely, an area to come back to as there are many things to do.

We have stayed at Destination Spa twice now and enjoyed each time. The owners are very thoughtful, their home is very clean which is important to us and the breakfast was first class. In response to others comments about rules, I am thankful they have them as it provides a b&b that is very clean and comfortable for guests. We would recommend this B&B to anyone.

Hello travellers,

We just returned from a return visit to Destination Spa Bed & Breakfast. We have been there several times before, and it is our favorite destination stop between Calgary and Vancouver. It breaks the trip up into two equal driving days.

As owners of our own business, we wanted to mention to others that the consistency at Destination Spa Bed & Breakfast is great. You can truly count on the reviews of others who have had a very comfortable stay.

We particularly like how spotless the rooms and bathrooms are. I am a clean nut at my own home, and the littlest things bother me. They must be the same way, as the bathrooms are cleaned several times throughout the day. This is very important to us. Also, we are usually able to get a private bathroom when there, but we have no problem whatsoever using the shared bathroom, if that ends up being all that is available.

Destination Spa Bed & Breakfast is the nicest B&B we have stayed at, and for what you get, we would expect to pay a whole lot more.

We also feel very spoiled when we visit here, as we are offered top of the line spa services at absolutely AMAZING prices, and are also given the opportunity to view Toby's very unique gift shop...we wanted to buy everything on the shelf! She doesn't have all the "typical" items you would find at local stores or in the mall.

As we have returned many times already, we will be back many, many more! Keep up the great work Toby and Kevin!

The combination of the lovely home, the views from the deck, and the exceptional hospitality make this a must stay! Our only regret was that we were booked for only one night(we were staying here as a mid-point stop between Vancouver and Banff). It would have been nice to have an extra day or so to explore the lake. The views from the deck at sunset were breathtaking, the food was excellent, the bed was great, and we were made to feel completely at home.

I would highly recommend staying here, and if you can....stay for a while and enjoy the lake(it is expansive)!

Had a nice stay in a room with a lovely view and enjoyed the wonderful breakfast. The hosts are kind but be aware that Toby will go over the rules with you (and there are many!) plus she will take the opportunity to try and upsell products and spa services to you. I've stayed at many B&Bs, so I realize that hosts have their own unique quirks which makes the B&B experience memorable. Just know what to expect and this will allow you to enjoy the surroundings.

I am very happy that you enjoyed your overall stay here at Destination Spa Bed & Breakfast. I hope that my reminders provided to our guests when guided through our home are not considered rules, but just as stated, reminders. It would be ideal if all guests were as careful as you were, but I have had incidents where walls were scratched, and linens were stained beyond repair. As I have gone out of my way to provide custom and unique painting throughout our home, in some cases it is near impossible or extremely costly to repair. I provide the best linens I can find, and it is unfortunate when they need to be replaced due to an oversite on a guests part. As I also operate a Day Spa and Gift Shop, we have had guests comment that they were disappointed they did not take advantage of these services. I feel it is my obligation to our guests to offer them the services I provide, so they may enjoy the pampering while visiting. They have also felt that they needed to be invited into our Gift Shop, which is open to all guests. Guest have appreciated the convenience of purchasing a unique/useful gift to take along with them.
I want all guests to enjoy the atmosphere I strive to provide, and the efforts I have gone to, to provide a unique and enjoyable experience.
Thank you again for your comments, and I hope to see you again.

Destination Spa B&B was an amazing surprize, given that we were mainly looking for just a nice overnight stop-over half way through a long drive. Toby is a bubbly host with Latin warmth and a tastefully decorated, spotless Tuscan-style villa celebrating her Italian roots. Best lychee drink and breakfast ever, loved the overall ambiance. All rooms have fabulous views of Shuswap lake. Salmon Arm has enormous potential to become a very popular destination, with Destination Spa as its top place to stay. Don't miss it if you're in the area.
