We chose to stay at the South Thompson Inn as a stopover on our drive from Calgary to Vancouver Island. We selected the inn because it is pet friendly and we were travelling with our dog. The South Thompson Inn turned out to be much more than a bed for the night. The grounds are lovely, the staff are friendly...

My wife and I have now enjoyed two separate visits to the STI. On both occasions we have enjoyed wonderful hospitality, great food, wonerful views of the river/surrounding areas and clean, quiet accommodations. They have a wonderful chef - make sure to try the local rainbow trout offering - it's to die for. We met the owner on one occasion...

The test of a truly exceptional hospitality environment is the facility's attitude towards pets. Having travelled all over the world with our 2 Bearded Collies, we nominate the South Thompson Inn as Number 1 in this regard. Equally outstanding is the personable and welcoming staff, the excellent restaurant, the breathtaking setting and the thoughtfully equipped and quiet rooms. We unreservedly...

Our group stayed at The South Thompson Inn for 5 days. From the first welcome to the sincere goodbyes when leaving, the staff were only concerned with our comfort and well being. And how about a fantastic property! I highly recommend this stop to anyone travelling through Kamloops. Well worth it!

Our room was spacious, comfortable and felt like we were guests in a southern mansion. The sliding glass door opened onto a wide balcony with wicker chairs overlooking the river. We love everything about the room. The resort is at least 20 minutes out of Kamloops and we didn't want to drive all that way for dinner so we ate...

Great location and comfortable room. Great bar for a beer next door. Try the Poutine a traditional Canadian dish of Chips Cheese and Gravy it's a lot better than it sounds. We enjoyed Kamloops wish we could have stayed longer

I am happy to hear you enjoyed your comfortable room. Yes, I agree the poutine is much better than it sounds. Francis, our food and beverage manager is French Canadian so possibly he suggested it. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your Rocky Mountain tour. Thank you for your review, David

No seriously, this place is incredibly special. I stumbled on it via the app Hotel tonight and it far exceeded my expectations. It oozed with charm and the staff was lovely. I was brokenhearted when I left and am already planning an extended stay there. If I was the marrying type I'd totally do it there!

Stayed overnight as we had a workshop at the Inn the next day. Room was cute and charming. Lovely deck and great view of the area. Had dinner in the restaurant - super food. Conference organization - meals, room and staff - all brilliant. In particular the staff. Couldn't ask for a better workshop location.
