We stopped here en route from Vancouver to Jasper and it suited us just fine. It was easy to find and situated by the river with the opportunity to walk around the grounds. There was plenty of choice for breakfast and evening meal. I guess you could drive into Kamloops in 20 minutes or so but we chose not to...

Attended a family wedding at South Thompson Inn over the past weekend. Accordingly experienced the facility, rooms, banquet services and wedding services. The rooms are clean and comfortable, although the building is not the most sound proof. There is an additional building available for rent (the manor), and the wedding party rented that. It was large and spacious and had...

Dear LHubich, thank you so much for sharing your experience with us, our team really appreciates your kind words. Especially the mention of the excellent food and service. The manor house does work well for weddings, golf groups, family reunions, etc. Hope you will return for another visit. Thank you again! David

We stayed here one night only on a recent road trip to the west coast. Very attractive property overlooking the river, with a small restaurant of perhaps 10? tables. As it is some distance from town and we got in late we chose to dine in; having made reservations for dinner, it was a cute touch that the menu header...

Dear Tansay, I appreciate your very detailed review about your stay with us. Thank you for all of your positive comments. I am sorry about the dogs outside of your room. We do ask our guests to keep their dogs leashed while outside their rooms and this guest did not follow that rule so again I apologize for that. If...

I am randomly traveling around Canada for my vacation. Stopped here for the night and I am very impressed with the staff, accomodations and food. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the beds must have had new matresses as I get an excellent sleep that night. The food (I had the baby back ribs)...

The Inn itself is beautiful, it is a shame they don't offer horse riding there anymore (insurance issues apparently). The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was pretty good for dinner, breakfast was ok.

Dear Lisa C, thank you for the mention of our beautiful Inn and friendly and helpful staff. We all appreciate hearing those words. We had to stop for the reason you mentioned. The insurance premiums started getting larger than the total equestrian revenue. Hope you will return one day. David

The rooms are clean and attractive, the staff is friendly and helpful, the food is wonderful and the location is lovely. One could travel with horses, since an equestrian center is onsite. Painted turtles might even be seen.

Beautiful old tranquil Inn with perfectly suited decor. Welcoming and charming. Our mountain view was beautiful. Yes it is a way outside Kamloops but it's worth it and so close to Highway 1. Food was very reasonable and 24 hour tea and coffee very welcome. We had a great stay and wish we had more time there. Would recommend and...

We're traveling from Seattle to Jasper and stopped here for the nite. Ask for a river view room. King bed was very comfortable and room was recently remodeled. Dinner was superb and prices reasonable. Had the continental breakfast which is really a full breakfast and Pauline's service was superb.

The center is about 10 miles east of the city but its location on the river as a previous horse ranch makes it special. We have the hot tub and pool overlooking the river to ourselves. We shared the property with a few European tour groups but did not know they were even there as dinners were in separate rooms....
