“It's all about the pool!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Lovely oasis after traveling the Trans-Canada. Super clean room, comfortable bed, great service and oh what a great pool and spa area tucked away in the trees. Restaurant breakfast was not perfect as one item needed to be re-done, but it was handled with a friendly cooperative spirit.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the backside for quiet and patio access to pool area.

We spent almost 200 CAD for the Suite. It didnt worth for the our money to spend for this room. It looked very old, dirty.The stove seemed like havent been cleaned for a long time. I heard people upstairs walk all the time. We decided to move out in the next monring.. We will never return..

Room Tip: Pics on the website..cant trust

We actually live in Salmon Arm and decided to have our daughters birthday party at the Podollan and stay there for a night. It was like going away to a resort somewhere. Very large, clean rooms, opening directly onto the pool with our own patio. There is a lap lane as well as a large pool and hot tub and lots of running water from water wall and fountains. At night, the lanterns came on and the ambience was great. Definitely would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Lake view faces out over Hwy #1, which can be noisy with trucks coming down the hill. I would recom...

We travel through Salmon Arm often, and this was our first stay at Podollan. The reception staff was very accommodating and friendly. The room was impressive and clean with a view of the lake, and overnight was quiet. We were offered discounts at the restaurant however opted to eat out. And the price was comparable to others in the area. We are somewhat picky when it comes to hotels, and are generally quite disappointed if a hotel looks good online and then offers mediocre rooms and old decor. This was not the Podollan. We would stay there again in a heartbeat! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Main hotel offers a view of the lake (second building behind is motel-style, with doors directly to...

Stayed a Saturday night on the way to Calgary, room & pool were good. Thought we had breakfast early on Sunday before we head out. Went to restaurant with my 2 teenagers around 8:45 or so in the mprning & my wife was checking out. It was busy with only one person waiting on tables. It took awhile before our orders were taken. Sat till after 9:30, almost 45 minutes later, finally decide we had to get going. Left without breakfast. Very disappointed. Went a few blocks away & had breakfast at Tim Hortons, in & out within 20 minutes.

We are pleased you enjoyed your room and British Columbia’s largest free form heated outdoor swimming pool. Our hotel is a popular destination for travellers on a route between Vancouver and Calgary. We apologize for the delay at breakfast and for the inconvenience. One of our servers had a family emergency which resulted in the shortage of staff. We have taken measures to avoid a similar situation in the future. We hope to see you again.

One of the most enjoyable pools in BC. What a gem. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff is very pleasant and the town is the same. Golf in every direction with in 30 minutes. Great weekend get away even if you live nearby. Very affordable

Room Tip: The walk out room to the pool worked for my wife and I. It was fun

We are delighted it worked out for you in the beautiful poolside room with private patio to sit, relax, enjoy the gardens, water features and pool. With the hotel being extremely busy and with guests extending their stays, on occasion room allocation can be challenging. We are currently offering all our hotel guests a voucher for breakfast and discount coupon for dinner. Our restaurant is reviewed as one of the best BC restaurants with a fresh local organic menu. Thank you for taking the time to write.
