“River view and gourmet breakfast in Kamloops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Although Kamloops was chosen for an overnight stay not for its interest or beauty but because it's mid way between Jasper and Vancouver, we were pleasantly surprised by this beautiful B&B. The house is right on the river, with a sloping terraced garden, a hot tub, a deck complete with gas "bonfire" and - for the brave ones - a deck and swinging rope just on the river. At night you can sit by the "fire", listen to the flow of the river and sip your complimentary wine. The room we got was a bit small and without much storage or hanging space, but it had a great view of the yard and river, was very well equipped (e.g. 2 sets of towesl, one for the hot-tub) and very clean. Breakfast is a feast. All the guests sit around a beautifully set table, and our gracious hosts, dressed in white chefs' coats, prepare a tasty and hearty cooked breakfast, in addition to the gourmet-style cold delicacies on the table.
After a long drive and a long day, this was a great place to relax.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs if possible - nicer view and probably larger.

I love this B&B, the river view is super beautiful. Cynthia gave us the best room, it is large, clean and romantic. the breakfast is also super, very fresh and health. Truly relax experience for us during the long day drive from Canmore. Will recommend this BB and will come again :)

We were on our last night of our road trip. Our rooms had beautiful views of the river and only a short drive to downtown. Our room was clean with everything you could ever want. Our host was knowledgeable and help with an enjoyable stay. The breakfast was fantastic and we would recommend staying here anytime :).

Room Tip: Any room at this B&B is good.

We had traveled for so long and the day was so hot, dry and dusty that arriving at the place was really like reaching an Oasis in the desert. Clean room, well equiped although central ac with no in room control is not good. Got really cold in the night. The garden is beautiful and the overall setting is nice.
Breakfast is good and served fresh and tasty at the guest table.
Kamloops is a mining town and except scouting the mountains and lakes around town there is nothin much to do.
Thanks for your hospitality and service.

Stayed in the Eagle Soar suite last week for one night during a quick getaway. The B&B is beautifully located on the Thompson River, 10 minutes or so out of Kamloops, and the grounds are lovely. There is a dock extending out into the Thompson River, complete with a rope swing for the adventurous (plus optional lifejackets for safety - it *is* a large river), also a outdoor hot tub right next to a goldfish pond. Lots of outdoor seating. Very quiet & peaceful. The breakfast was superb; fresh fruit, yogurt, muffin slices, pancakes fresh off the griddle with wild blueberry sauce, bacon, sausages, a soft-boiled egg, and EXCELLENT coffee. Very professional. Our room, Eagle Soar, was well-appointed, with a very comfortable king-size bed, basket chairs inside & deck chairs on the little balcony, big screen TV, air conditioning... all good.

Okay, here's the one negative bit. (Still giving this place 5 stars.)

Our one disappointment was the ensuite. For $160/night we had assumed that this would be a full bathroom, but it was only a very small shower stall with one of those awkward "bump it & the water turns off/freezes/boils you" sticking-out water controls. No bath tub. The fridge, microwave & coffee maker shared the bathroom, which was a bit awkward. The bathroom door was merely an accordion-fold plastic closet door type arrangement. There was plenty of room in the suite for the food area to be separate from the toilet/shower area, so not quite sure why it was all crammed in together. If the bathroom had a tub & was laid out just a bit differently (and with a proper bathroom door) this suite would have been quite perfect.

We would definitely stay here again, though. Just wouldn't bring along the bubble bath for a relaxing tub soak! ;-)

We really enjoyed staying at the Riverside Bed and Breakfast. We spent two nights in the Eagle Soar room which is spacious and well equipped. The hosts are very nice and have thought of everything for their guests. We enjoyed the views of the river and the hot tub. Breakfast was great.

Room Tip: Eagle Soar is the most private room.

This was a very comfortable B&B accommodation. Our hosts, Cynthia & Gordon were very professional and made us feel at home. They cooked up a wonderful breakfast. Our room was spacious and clean with all the amenities. If you are in Kamloops, you will enjoy this one.

Room Tip: We had the Eagle Soar room with a King bed....great!
