We stopped here for just one night on our way across BC. What a lovely respite!

The entire staff was warm and friendly and oozed hospitality. Cristina, who checked us out, did a great job on her very first check-out transaction!

The grounds are beautiful and the river setting so serene. We saw a beautiful sunset overlooking the river and then enjoyed a quiet few minutes on our porch the next morning before getting on the road. Paying a little extra for a riverside room is a must. The river view and the staff’s hospitality are what took my rating from a 3 to a 4.

We had dinner at the onsite restaurant. Our burger and chicken pot pie were just fine. Nothing extraordinary but both tasty enough that we were pleased we hadn’t chosen to drive into Kamloops to find a restaurant.

The building is a little worn. It is exceptionally clean but its age is apparent. The room was quiet and comfortable; a mini-fridge would have been a wonderful touch for our on-the-road snacks. The bathroom was a bit awkward, with a very low, outdated vanity that made my back hurt to bend over. It was fine for a one-night stay but a longer stay would have proved challenging. I did appreciate all the counter space, though.

For an off-the-beaten-path, non-chain-hotel experience in a setting full of character and friendliness, the South Thompson Inn is definitely recommended.

Room tip: Pay extra for a river view room with a porch. SO worth it!

Hi Toni,
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review on TripAdvisor. We are happy to see that you enjoyed your stay with us.
The view is gorgeous for sure. Karen, our executive chef and her team is pleased to hear that you like the food. Also Glenda our executive housekeeper and her team are more than happy to read another comment about how clean everything is again.
Fridges are available on request at Front Desk.
As far as being dated. We are a country Inn and do not try to look like a city hotel. We do stay clean and fresh but try and stay comfortable. Actually the main floor common area was redone in 2017 but we stayed with the Kentucky style Inn look.
The bathrooms counters are standard bathroom heights but seem low if you are a tall person. We have had this comment a couple times in twenty years. I am fairly tall and appreciate your comment.
Christina hopes to have the pleasure of checking you in on your next visit.
Thanks again for your review. We appreciate you recommended us to others.

We enjoyed our visit here, yet again. Room 54 is our favourite - with view of river and mountains beyond. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. We brought 4 additional guests with us this time - on our way to our annual fishing trip outside of Barrier. The Inn and surroundings are well maintained and very beautiful. Will be returning again at our next possible opportunity.

Thank you for your 5/5 points review on TripAdvisor. We are pleased to have you as our guest.
If a guest returns we know we did a good job.
Room 54 is a great room. We call is a romance room. Even needs a step to get onto the pillow top bed.
We hope to see you back soon.
Thank you David

We experienced car troubles en route from Osoyoos to Edmonton and needed to find a place to stay in Kamloops. So glad we found the South Thompson Inn. The staff were welcoming, the rooms and grounds were lovely and the price was reasonable. They even made our dog feel at home! Next time through Kamloops we know where we will be staying.

Hi Pat
We are happy you stayed with us even it was because of an issue with your car.
Thanks for writing this 5/5 review and recommending the South Thompson Inn on TripAdvisor!
How wonderful to read that you will stay with us again next time you are in Kamloops.
And please bring your dog with you again. Some places say they are pet friendly, we love our guests to bring their pets.

Had a single night here as part of an Evergreen Tour, and to be honest, one night was not enough. The setting is so incredibly tranquil and relaxing, we could have happily spent 3 nights here and just relaxed. The rooms are excellent, the food is brilliant and the staff are awesome.
Some highlights - you can wander anywhere you like on the 55 acre property, visit the horses, who love being hand fed the grass they can't reach, take a bike ride, swim/spa, kick back in front of the river and watch the geese glide past, roast smors around the firepit, oh, and make sure you give Peyton the house dog a good old fashioned scritch.
Highly recommend the place.
