“beautiful view along the river”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

although we had some trouble finding the hotel we had a very pleasant stay there. Because of the beautiful weather we asked for a river vuew room, which was no problem. The room was okay and we loved the balcony. We also ate at the restaurant hotel and made a reservation in advance. We were suprised that we received a menu card which was printed with our namens. It's just a detail but it gives you an extra smile at your face. The food was good and the portions were very royal. We also had breakfast but that wasn't exciting. Servers were very friendly and rooms were clean and wide enough.

We selected Kamloops and the South Thompson Inn for our annual couples Golf Trip. the Inn bent over backwards to arrange the proper T times and prepared a fantastic dinner. The attention to detail was excellent. The unique and relaxed atmosphere was wonderfull, we enjoyed the view and pool. We will definitely be back. the only thing they could not do was help my putting..

Room Tip: All rooms have nice views. The ground floor south units have large patios.

I stayed there on business for a conference and it was great. The food was absolutely the best and the staff were awesome. We had a little trouble with wireless connections however nothing that was significant enough to cause any major difficulties.

We really enjoyed the atmosphere and service we received while staying at the Inn for a work conference. The staff were friendly and always ready to provide us with anything we needed. The rooms could use some new decor but overall a lovely place to stay whether for business or pleasure.

Thank you for writing your review and we are happy you enjoyed your stay with us. We have quite a variety of décor. Every room is different from modern business Kings to our original Laura Ashley design Something for everyone. We update a few rooms every year so soon no more Laura Ashley. Next time you stay with us please request one of these newly decorated rooms.

I travel extensively and have eaten in many good restaurants
over the years. The restaurant was a delightful surprise.
The flatbread appetizer is fantastic- up there with Trattoria Dell’Arte’s
pizza in New York! Your serving sizes are more than generous and the prices
are certainly not a reflection of the caliber of food being served! Their ingredients are 85% local. The server was fun to talk to and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. I will be sure to spread the word about this hidden gem .

Stopped over on trip from jasper to whistler and ideal place for a one night rest. Lovely location on river and staff very friendly. Wedding going on while we were there but no problems with noise. We had good meal on terrace. Only downside was lack of even a fridge in the rooms as most of the rooms that we stayed in had full kitchens and would have been helpful to be able to store some items eg butter, cheese and drinks. Also location cried out for the opportunity to be able to take a boat out on the river. Overall though would recommend or anyone looking to stop near kamloops for a break.

We stopped here when driving from Vancouver to Jasper in the Rockies. It's a perfect place for an overnight being just outside the town of Kamloops.

Staff were super friendly, our room clean and comfy (if a little chintzy) with 2 double beds and a nice view. The bar / restaurant on stie was good and reasonably priced. We ate outside on the terrace where you get a view over the river.

There is a an outdoor pool to lounge by, plus paddocks to explore and bikes to use.

It's a little out on it's own, a drive back into Kamloops if you want anything, but that wasn't an issue for us as the hotel had everything we needed.

I would recommend having Satnav or detailed map to get there, it's a little off the beaten track across the railroad and bridge.

Room Tip: Long goods trains run along the other side of the river to the hotel. You might want a room on the s...
