We have been visiting the South Thompson Inn for the last several years for our annual business planning retreat held over the Easter Weekend. We continue to return as the entire South Thompson team does a great job year after year. We are able to achieve our business planning goals with the amenities offered as well being able to enjoy some much needed time to wind down and recharge both mind and body. The Inn is perfectly located next to the river with acres and acres of beautiful grounds to wander. Excellent area for running, hiking, biking or a quick walk next door to the neighboring Riverside Golf Course and driving range. Madisen's Dining Room offers fine dining in a very intimate setting with personalized menus or enjoy a more casual meal in the lounge/pub. Every detail of our weekend is expertly tended to by both the management and staff and we already look forward to our next trip! We highly recommend the South Thompson Inn!!

What a superb hotel: lovely setting on the river, beautiful decor and atmosphere, very comfortable and quiet with excellent food and matching friendly yet respectful service.
A double plus for golfers as it's next door to RIvershore Golf Course.

Room Tip: some rooms face the river

This was our first visit the the Inn and it will definately NOT be our last. We arrived late for a much needed getaway and although we only had two days, the friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere made it seem like a week. It was like they opened up just for us. Our room was so romantic with a fireplace and a jacuzzi tub. The deck overlooked the river but you have the choice of that or mountains. We took full advantage of the inviting lobby while we drank coffee and leisurely read the newspapers the next morning. The restaurant food was stellar (I reccommend the seafood matelote). We will definately be back. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!!

Room Tip: I would as for a room upstairs next time. The floors are hardwood (no carpet) so could be noisy if...

We have stayed at STIGR twice now on our way home from the west coast. It is a nice change from the hotels right along the highway because you don't have the traffic noise keeping you awake. It's a bit out of the way if you are going on to Edmonton as it is about 15 minutes east of Kamploops - but it's well worth the detour. The service is beyond compare and the food in the restaurant is excellent - not cheap but really good. We travel with dogs and there is lots of space to walk the dogs.

Room Tip: I don't thnk there is a bad room in the place.

Quiet and very relaxing - my room had a beautiful river view. A nice change from Kamloops commercial areas. I would consider returning again and paying the price premium. Dinner menu and staff service met expectations.

It was the perfect setting for our daughters wedding, and even the weather cooperated. PTL. Anke is the event coordinator and she is fabulous. Right from our first meeting we knew we had made the right choice and she was extremely easy to work with. Christina was the food coordinator and she worked so hard to have everything right. The service and staff were amazing as is the setting of this charming boutique inn. It's cozy and very comfortable, and they go out of their way to make it a wonderful time. I can't say enough about how fabulous our weekend was, other than if you're planning a wedding, seriously look at the South Thompson Inn and conference center, you won't be dissappointed!!!

This was our first time at the South Thompson Inn and it was amazing. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The rooms are all different and unique. It isn't like most hotels where every thing is exactly the same. It's unique, beautiful, and comfortable. I was honestly sad to be leaving and absolutely plan on going back. The rooms on one side look out onto the river which was also really nice. There was the equestrian center and a nature walk, although it was to spring like to really go on the nature walk I still went on a little adventure and the grounds are stunning. Horses, the white fences with the mountains in the background and the horses and lama's. I honestly loved this place. They have so many different options to help accommodate you and are so incredibly helpful. If you want something different than the usual, go here. You will love it.
