“Clean and Comfortable but In Need of an Update”
Reviewed August 3, 2011

My husband and I stayed in the Zacarias Suite at the South Thompson Inn for a friend's wedding. The room was clean and well-equipped, but the decor was very out of date. We shared our balcony with an adjoining room, which would have been nice if we had friends or relatives staying next door but would otherwise be uncomfortable. Other suites appeared to be in better condition - I recommend asking about what amenities are in the specific room you are staying in.

Room Tip: Request a river view

Nice location on the river and staff were very friendly and accommodating-and restaurant was fine. Rooms are quite small and overpriced for what you get-and air conditioner is noisy. Bathrooms are dated.

Thanks for the friendly staff comments. We have a great team. Hard to answer small room comment as other think they are large. They are larger than many. Smaller than some. Eye of the beholder. Air-conditioners in general can be noisy. Some bathroom laminates are dated. Many redone, more this year.

We have just had a two night stay in this lovely hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are large and comfortable opening on to a nice deck. The pool is warm and the grounds are perfect for a stroll. Looking forward to returning.

The place is like "Dynasty", beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed for 2 nights during our round trip through British Colombia, and will definitely be back.

We love it because it is so close to the golf course. Just a short walk across the driving range. It is nice to meet so many people from different parts of the world. The food in the lounge was excellent.
