It is a joy to hear such great reviews from our frequent traveler guests who spend a lot of their time living out of a suitcase. We like to think that when you live life on the road, a comfortable, relaxing, stay in a place that offers a pleasant retreat from the rush of life is really a key component of keeping yourself healthy and balanced.

For the weary traveller, the comfort of our beds and the beautiful lakeside setting of our hotel provides a welcome retreat. Our beds are so comfortable that we keep a stock of brand new linens, bath robes, and pillows on hand because our guests like them so much they want to take some home with them.

Thank you for sharing you experience with other travelers.

Until your next stop here at the Quaaout...

The tranquil lakefront setting of this hotel and first class golf course was just the beginning of a great getaway. The native inspired resort's staff is made up of charming, local band members and the F&B outlets serve up delicious meals! My view room overlooked Little Shuswap lake and was comfortable, clean and well equipped with luxury, great smelling amenities. I love the place. While I am not a golfer, two of my friends agreed it was the best course they have played. We all recommend Quaaout Lodge for a getaway.

Waytk (Hello);

It is a pleasur to hear that you had such a wonderful time here at our resort. The Quaaout Lodge and Talking Rock Golf Course are 100% owned and operated by the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band. In addition to providing a top knotch holiday expereince reflecting the local Secwepemc culture of today and of the past, we are pleased to play an integral role in the training and skills development for the local First Nations people here in the Secwepemc Nation Territory.

Like your friends, golfers from all over have found the Talking Rock course to be a true gem. Rounding out our 5th season, we have been very happy to have recently received the 2012 Gold ranking of the Talking Rock Golf Course in the Thompson-Shuswap region and #9 in British Columbia by the PGA of BC.

We appreciate your feedback, and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Kukstemec!
(Thank you)

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this relaxing friendly Lodge. The surroundings are in keeping with the First Nations Community and inspire reflection. All the usual amenities were of a high standard, from bedding to sheets to coffee. We loved the pool after a day on the first rate golf course. Dinner was excellent in a gorgeous setting. Sitting on the balcony of our room watching the sun set was the end to a perfect day. Apparently all the rooms have views of the Lake. Can't wait to to return again and spend more time in the top line Pro Shop, Gift Shop which features local crafts, and the Spa.

Room Tip: They are all good

Only played golf did not stay at the lodge. Dropped in to play as a single and was treated/greeted politely and professional by pro staff. Got me out on the course in 25 mins. the course was explained to me as well as the use of the driving range/putt green. The Course was in outstanding shape for this time of year (late September). No dried or burnt fairways or greens. The course was a joy to play. Very poor shots were greeted with the odd bit of difficulty. The greens were in great shape, accepted proper incoming shots but refused to hold those low hard shots. Fairways were great to play off and well maintained. Overall the golf experience was very good and will return to replay this course in the future.

Thank you for your review of our Talking Rock Golf Course. It sounds like you had the welcoming experience that we strive to provide for each and every one of our guests.

We look forward to welcoming you back for another great golf experience, and invite you to come and stay with us right here on the course at the Quaaout Lodge.

Stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of September, visiting sights in the area (but didn't golf). Watched an awesome sunset from the beach the first night and really enjoyed the location and the view from the balcony. Service was excellent, the room was very clean, the king bed was VERY comfy, and food in the restaurant was good. We anticipated a noisy night due to a wedding in the hotel, but didn't hear a thing. Would definitely stay again.

Nice place to stay. golf course employees are very pushy and rude.

The room were nice and cool to stay in, the cleanliness of the room was poor, dust and spider webs on the walls,pictures,and counter tops.
The shower was missing the curtain and tile grout was dirty.
The big tub was very nice to soak in but when we turned the jets on black chunks of stuff came out with hair balls so I would say they are not cleaned that well.
The food in the restaurant was ok, the service staff are supper nice but takes forever and a day to get the food to the table, a bit pricey as well.

We golfed 18 holes on the course and right from the get go the door man was very pushy on getting us out on the course to sit and wait on almost every hole in the heat.
We got to the 9 hole and one of the course managers or RULE inforcers came out and was rude and basically made are entire golf team feel like crap with sarcastic comments and his entire demeanour towards us and the beginner golfers that were playing with us.
Are whole game was shot after that we spent over a $1000 to play golf and it will be the last time I ever play there again.

Room Tip: The south end room look over the lake, great views. Gound access to the rooms is great.

It sounds like you had a rather mixed experience during your stay with us. Clearly there were some things which did not go quite as you had hoped, and we are sincerly sorry too hear that.

We take all feedback from our guests very seriously. Your TripAdvisor review has been shared and discussed by our management team.

With regards to the clealiness of your room, our housekeepers take great pride in the high standard of cleanliness that they provide as exhibited in many of the reviews we have received here on TripAdvisor. We encourage all of our guests to let us know immediately if there is something not quite right and give us the opportunity to fix it rather than go away with a bad experience behind them.

In planning and pricing the menus at Jack Sam's Restaurant, our Food & Beverage team take great care in building a menu that appeals to a range of tastes, and offers good value and service. We take the time to consider our marketplace, and the pricing and offerings within our region. It is unfortunate that you did not find the same value in our offerings that many other happy clients do.

The team at the Talking Rock Golf Course take great pride in offering one of the best golfing experiences in the province as evidenced by recently being ranked as the #2 course in the Kamloops-Shuswap region, and #9 in British Columbia by the PGA of BC. In addition to the great facility, our golf course staff work with our clients to provide a good pace of play for all of our guests with a generous 10 minutes between scheduled tee times, and an average of 15 minutes per hole play time. When the course is busy, it is important for everyone on the course to be mindful of their own pace of play and how it affects other groups on the course, and it is the job of the course marshalls to ensure a safe and enjoyable game within a reasonable time.

While we strive to offer the best possible expereince for all of our guests, occasionally we miss the mark. It is at these times that we invite guests such as yourself to contact us directly to voice your concerns so that we may address them appropriately. If there is an area within our operations where we can make improvements, we are dedicated to doing so.

I invite you to contact our General Manager Stephan Wittmer directly and in confidence with your specific concerns.

Sincerely;

Rhys Laug

I didn't stay at the resort but had 4 services at Le7Ke spa over the long weekend...fabulous! The spa practitioners were all very professional and gave fantastic treatments. One favourite is the shea butter scrub and vichy shower...what an experience. Of course the reiki session brought some clarity and balance to my mind. Also enjoyed a scrumptious brunch! I highly recommend this wonderful resort...full of wonderful staff :-)

Room Tip: I have stayed before and I think all rooms are equally as good. Each has its own balcony with a view...

Renewal, Rejuvenation, and Relaxation... the 3 Rs at the centre of the Le7Ke Spa experience! With the opening of Le7Ke Spa in June 2011, the Quaaout Lodge and Talking Rock Golf Resort entered a new phase in the development of a special place to get away from the stresses of daily life to gain a new lease on life.

I have had the great pleasure to work alongside Spa Director Regula Wittmer and her team of professional practitioners while the spa was under construction and the time since it opened, and on the occasions I have had the opportunity to enjoy a little pampering myself, I have to say that there is something truly special about Le7Ke Spa and the holistic approach to healing that the provide.

The word Le7Ke means "I am well" in the Secwepemc or Shuswap language. With a mindful approach to developing the treatments and products offered at Le7Ke, Regula incorporated local First Nations traditional principles in all aspects of the spa experience here at the Quaaout Lodge.

Kukstemec (koots-jem) is the Secwepemc word for thank you.... and we do all thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers here on TripAdvisor.

Sincerely;

Rhys Laug
