“Big rooms, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Large, clean, quiet room which was perfect for a family of four. Reserved room while on the road a few hours before. No problems checking in. Restaurant was pretty decent. Enjoyed the crab tortellini. 'Hand of God Stout' was an excellent beer. Our waitress was more than accommodating. We were getting on the road before breakfast started the next day so she made up a breakfast package for us, to put in our room fridge. Outdoor pool area is very 'resort-like' and roomy (you're not banging into others). Overall, a great stay!!!

BEWARE! YOUR RESERVATION MAY NOT BE AN ACTUAL RESERVATION -- We actually never had a chance to stay at this hotel because when we tried to book, we were asked for our phone number to call us back because there was a 'lineup' and then when my call was finally returned, I wasn't available to take the call. When I called back, the room they had was now gone. Even though many websites still showed availability, so, I booked online! Luckily I phoned the day after to make sure my reservation was good, I was told that in fact they did not have any rooms and they weren't able to help me in any way. SO, if planning to stay at this hotel, make sure you actually have a room and you don't arrive to find out that you do not.

We stopped here to break up a longer trip, but we'll make this a destination from now on. The staff was nice, the room excellent, and the dinner and breakfast (included, which is rare in Canada) were wonderful. The pools were well kept-up and the scenery on-site was lovely.

I stayed here for a couple days on business. The hotel rooms were big & had a fridge which was very helpful. The pool's huge & and awesome so I’ll be coming back with my family for sure. The food in table 24 was excellent and I’ll be going back the next time I go through Salmon Arm. Great place to stay & ideal for families!

Very nice rooms, exceptional front desk staff, outstanding outdoor pool! My only negative is the overrated and overpriced food in the restaurant. Carrot ginger soup was like hot orange maple syrup, the rosemary ranch dressing was too strong-leaving a bitter taste, the steak was over cooked. I would recommend this hotel, and will return for another stay on my next trip, but I don't recommend the restaurant. Too bad, as everything else was wonderful.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms a must!!

I had the pleasure of staying overnight at the Podollan Inn on Jun 23, 2014. I wish I'd had more time to spend there. It is a lovely oasis! The room was comfortable and spacious and had all of the amenities I desired! The pool is amazing and there are walking trails a step out the front door. I also had dinner and brunch at the restaurant and all of the food was delicious. I'd recommend this to anyone spending time in the area!
