Last August, my family and I travelled, as a wedding anniversary gift, on the Rocky Mountaineer (RM) from Banff, Alberta to Vancouver, British Columbia. To allow passengers to enjoy the beauty of the Canadian Rockies and the Fraser Valley, our train did not travel at night. Our train package included a one-night stay in Kamloops, British Columbia, and we were assigned to Riverland Inn & Suites. The property consists of two buildings and is located right on the river bank of the South Thompson River,
Because RM had assigned to us our two rooms, we did not have to go through the formal check-in. Instead, we received our room keys and found our luggage in our rooms. They are large with king beds and soda beds and offer a sweeping view up and down the river and of hills across the river as well as of parts of Kamloops.
The Inn did not serve us dinner. Instead, we ate at Storms Restaurant next door. The meals on the terrace were good and so was the service.
We found our air-conditioned rooms large and our beds comfortable. The rooms came with free WI-FI; coffee makers; irons and ironing boards, and flat-screen TV. The bathrooms contained adequate toiletries. Regrettably, we had no time to use the indoor pool or the whirlpool. Although the Inn offers free breakfasts, we did not partake, because breakfast was served on the train.
In the morning, we enjoyed water and coffee in the reception area. The check-out was simple. We left our luggage in our rooms (for pick-up and transportation by RM) and our room keys at reception. We found the reception staff friendly and helpful. As the cost of our accommodation was part of the train package, we are not aware of the rooms rates. All in all, we enjoyed our very brief stay. As we were last in Kamloops almost thirty years, and have no plans to return any time soon, we won’t return to the Inn, but if we do, we would consider returning to the Inn.
