The roo. was exceptionally clean and the floor was shiny and smooth. The staff was incredibly helpful in finding the hotel as well if a traveller got lost. The kentucky feel was apparent in every corner of the hotel. The horses and llamas on the grounds added to the ranch like feel. All in all an awesome stay. I would like to visit again as soon as […] possible. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and fantastic meals."
Beautiful setting on the riverside. This was our first stay and we would likely return. However, the facility is showing a fair bit of wear and tear. Our room was in need of some sprucing up, particularly the bathroom. A major reno there would make a huge difference. For the price we thought it would have been a bit more upscale ?? The noise of the […] ice machine right outside our door and the lack of insulation between the rooms was a bit annoying. BUT, the service was great and the two meals we had at dinner were fantastic. The executive chef clearly has a handle on simple fair cooked and presented very well. We would stay here again, perhaps requesting a room further from the ice machine.

The address of this place is confusing and we drove along a country road for a distance looking for the number of this road Expedia says it is on. The place is purely set up for conferences and the staff gave us the impression that we were a nuisance as they were busy for one of the conferences that was taking place. We were disappointed.Genuine Expedia guest review
very nice , intimate ,place. One can hear the heavy trains passing on the other side of the river thought this is not a major issueGenuine Expedia guest review
Very charming, quiet place with beautiful surroundings. One is really able to disconnect and relax. Any interaction with staff was always pleasant. Never been to an Inn in the country like this...really enjoyed. We enjoyed wandering around the grounds, having coffee on the deck, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet and Scenic Get-away"
Beautiful scenic area with horse stables and golf course nearby. Great dinner menu. Unfortunately, pre-paid reserved breakfast was cold.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved Our Stay"
We loved this place. We had a deluxe king room. We were right on the river. The room was so comfortable we didn't want to leave. It was also spotlessly clean. The staff were helpful and cheerful. We enjoyed peace and quiet which was just what we wanted.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Peaceful early spring stay."
A quiet and comfortable stay for one night. A pleasant surprise was the quality of the food -great young chef.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty good for a hotel in Kamloops"
I bought our stay from Expedia on a discount. I wouldn't pay the full price to stay in this hotel. The ranch is a little outside of the city with great view from the balcony, but I thought the rooms are overpriced. If you're going for golfing in Kamloops then this hotel is recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very good customer services. All our special needs were addressed by the hotel. If you have your own car and love to have a peaceful get-away, this is THE place to stay in Kamloops.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gem in Kamloops"
Lovely Kentucky-Style Inn with great Interior and Exterior, friendly staff and fantastic grounds. Will definitely stay there next time we are in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel. The only problem is that is not located close to Kamloops amenities, 25 minutes drive to Kamloops downtown. If you are looking for relaxing this is a good spot, but if you are looking for a hotel just to sleep and move around, this hotel is far from everything. Also it is complicated to get there as the address is not in most GPS's Again, […] the hotel is very nice if you don't mind the location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"In Kamploops, don't stay anywhere else"
Don't stay anywhere else. This guest ranch is excellent: a lovely setting and a quiet retreat in a hotel with charm and an elegant atmosphere, The food is nothing short of outstanding and the staff are friendly and respectful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Staying to play golf and tour"
Very good hotel. We enjoyed our stay. Food in restaurant outstanding and only disappointment was no cooked breakfast. Lovely setting and very friendly staff. The outside entrance could do with being tidied up a bit but inside was clean and very comfortable. Nice small swimming pool and hot tub with lovely views of the river. Similarly nice decks on […] some rooms over looking the river and valley. Would recommend Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by South Thompson Inn & Conference Centre So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we are very appreciative that you would recommend us, thank you. We tried hot breakfast but not enough guests wanted this so our continental breakfast satisfy most guests. We do have hot breakfasts on those days we have organized breakfasts for groups. David. .
Nice room with wonderful view, but mattresses were very uncomfortable, way way too hard. There were three adults in our room on two queen beds, and we all had a very uncomfortable night on those mattresses. Otherwise room and ammenities in it were great. We arrived around 7pm, after a 10 hour car trip and after check-in headed immediately for dinner […] in the dining room. We were turned away and told we would need to eat in the bar, because we had no reservation, even though the dining room was 3/4 empty. I was quite put off by this. The food was very good though. The wonderful view and outdoor space made the stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"South Thompson Inn & Conference Centre"
They operate the wrong post code and admitted that "most people take hours to find them". They claim, on their web site to have an aquestrian centre where as in actual fact they keep petting horses. Their so called delux room has neither a safe nor a fridge. Their breakfast is ddreadfull. The staff are plesent but useless. They have not got a lift nor […] do they have assistance to carry baggage to the upstair bedrooms. They are rated number 1 in the area on trip advisor. I do really wounder as to how that is possible.

"Unable to accommodate change"
We had troubles getting to the hotel due to highway issues. When we tried to contact the hotel to adjust our reservation, they obviously took the phone off the hook as others would be having the same issues. We tried for over four hours to get a hold of them to no avail. They obviously did not want to have to deal with a lot of travelers having to do […] the same. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Evening Meal was expensive and very poor quality - promised asparagus - gave us horrible corn, scalloped potatos cod and partially raw. Trout was very good and Tin Horn Creek wine was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Off the beaten track in Kamloops"
Wonderful spot for one night or a few days. Good food, terriffic grounds and quiet. spacious rooms quiet balcony and great restaurant. Staff very pleasant and friendly. Will go back againGenuine Expedia guest review
The rooms are fantastic and the staff are very attentive. The only drawback is it's a bit far away from anything, but if you don't mind a bit of a drive it makes for a quiet and relaxing place to rest your head.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A nice relaxing weekend getaway for my husband and I. The hotel is a little dated, the hot tub wasn't overly clean and the train was noisy in the middle of the night. Walls/doors seem a little thin. The service was great and the location is amazing. Continental breakfast was good but not worth $10. We used the free breakfast coupon from trip advisor. […] I would stay here again if the price was right. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Lovely hotel with friendly staff. If you have to stay at Kamloop (which I don't recommend), this will be quite pleasant. There is a golf course next door and there are horses and lamas on the property. It is a long way out of town which I think is a plus but this may be inconvenient to others.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very quiet location, nice view of the river, would have been happier knowing the pool and the hot tub were closed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Country style accom"
Quiet,comfy Accom. A bit of a drive from main town-20mins. No tea/coffee facilities in room. Pleasant surroundings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a picturesque setting with horse paddocks and llamas grazing. The rooms we has were fine but rather dated in decor. We dined in their restaurant rather than drive back to Kamloops and the food wAs excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this hotel to others. Staff is very friendly, food was excellent. Quiet, beautiful location. We were staying for a weekend long event in Kamloops, and the hotel is a bit of a drive (though an easy one) from town, but we felt it was worth the extra drive to return to such a relaxing, comfortable at […] mosphere.

"South Thompson Inn - Perfect stopover point"
We stopped here when driving from Vancouver to Jasper in the Rockies. It's a perfect place for an overnight being just outside the town on Kamloops. Staff were super friendly, our room clean and comfy (if a little chintzy) with 2 double beds and a nice view. The bar / restaurant on stie was good and reasonably priced. We ate outside on the terrace […] where you get a view over the river. There is a an outdoor pool to lounge by, plus paddocks to explore and bikes to use. It's a little out on it's own, a drive back into Kamloops if you want anything, but that wasn't an issue for us as the hotel had everything we needed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Rockies Round Trip"
08/30/14 davidhadden11a Paisley, United Kingdom
We stayed here on our first night of a Rockies round trip - I found the hotel easily enough but it is a little bit East of Kamloops so I guess you need to accept you'll probably 'eat in' and stay in once luggage and bags are unloaded. The room was very fresh clean and comfortable; it didn't have coffee making facilities but coffee was available in the morning and on both occasions the staff helped me take it back to the room. Scenery around the hotel was great and after a fair days drive a few minutes in the outdoor pool and hot tub looking over the river swept away the tiredness. I raised a minor query with the hotel by e mail after we'd left and I was delighted with the speed , professionalism and helpful response. We'd certainly recommend staying there and would happily return.
08/30/14 Jay B York, United Kingdom
We enjoyed our 1 night stay here. Although the South Thompson was quite busy with a wedding and all its guests, our stay was very enjoyable. We were given a lovely river view room with balcony (although this is shared with another room - not a problem if you know the people in the other room, but a divider might be a better idea). The rooms are decorated in a country style, but ours was perfectly clean and comfortable. Free wi-fi is available in the room. Coffee facilities are not available in the room, but they do offer complimentary tea & coffee downstairs until 10.00am. My only complaint was that signage is a bit lacking and we were unsure how to find the pool area without asking. Also we never did find changing rooms and ended up using washrooms - not a major problem, however. The staff were all very pleasant. If you are driving here the South Thompson does feel a bit off the beaten track, but you will understand why when you arrive and see how ranchy it is. Would be very happy to stay again.
"Very charming hotel"
08/24/14 Gabi H
We just stayed overnight on a roundtrip in BC. The choice was a good one. We had 2 rooms with 2 queen size beds for a family of 4 (2 teenagers). The beds were very comfortable. The design of the rooms all individual, romantic and very very nice. Our rooms were facing the river, nice views. We also used the basic fitness room and the pool area. This is very small, but can be nice on sunny days. The breakfast included was very good, incl. fresh juice, fresh fruits and nice rolls. We also had dinner in the restaurant and absolutely enjoyed it. The staff are very nice, helpful and competent as well.
"A nice hotel in a picturesque location, let down by some odd quirks."
08/23/14 L1am29 Portsmouth, United Kingdom
This is a nice hotel, situated in a lovely picturesque location overlooking the river. It is actually about 15-20 minutes outside of the main town and quite a way down a narrow road that doesn't initially appear to go anywhere. This is explained and something we knew before we had booked, but you still naturally question the instructions as you carry on down this road! Our room overlooked the river and was clean, well maintained and very pleasant. It don't really agree some reports that state that rooms and hotel is looking tired in areas. I look tired with age, so expect a hotel to do the same! We were a little disappointed with our dinner, but put that down to wrong choice as the menu did look quite varied. The swimming pool was a good temperature and we enjoyed a quiet afternoon on our own at the pool, this made our stay very pleasant due its location and overall quietness. I am aware that the hotel is keen to be in the top spot for Kamloops hotels, but what lets this hotel down can easily be rectified. This is a non-smoking hotel, as are most nowadays. We were informed this at reception at least twice and maybe 3 times during check-in, despite informing them that we are non-smokers. We still had a charge of $300 put against our card, in addition to the standard 25%, in case we breeched this rule! This really did annoy me and not the type of suspicion or distrust of customers that I would expect, especially of being a non-smoker! This hotel also does not provide cooked breakfasts, only continental, and we were required to provide our requirements before we had even sat down for our evening dinner which we had a table reserved for 8pm! They do provide complimentary coffee at the bar in the morning, which was nice. In the end, we chose to get breakfast on the road in the time of our choosing! Lastly and one that has been raised before, was the lack of attentive service and staff levels appeared thin on the ground. We laid next to the pool for 90 minutes and despite staff walking past us, no one offered to remove the cover from the jacuzzi or ask if we would like a drink. To summarise, this is a nice hotel in a really picturesque location, but let down by some really odd quirks. That said, the price was very favourable. We won't stay here again if we were asked to place $300 against our card. If we don't smoke then maybe we shouldn't have an issue with this, but we visited a hotel in Seattle this week, which was also non-smoking and non smoking within 25 ft of the hotel. This was clearly signposted as you entered and I was not reminded of it by staff or asked to place $300 against my credit card.
"Great overnight stay"
08/15/14 Snowflake166 Regina
Great overnight stay. If your tired of city noises stay here. We had the ribs and they were excellent We had them delivered to our room and ate them on the patio while watching a thunderstorm. We could see them golfing right next door. We'd stop again
"Great hotel, not so great restaurant."
08/14/14 cdy13 Edmonton, Canada
We stopped in for a night on our drive through Kamloops and decided to stay at the hotel after looking through tripadvisor. Check-in was a breeze, the front staff was helpful and friendly and the surroundings of the hotel were gorgeous. Our room was "kitschy" and cute and fit the ranch style of the hotel. All was great until dinner - our server was friendly and efficient but the food, oh the food. Dried out chicken, cold...it definitely left a lot to be desired. We were actually surprised for the beauty of the hotel that the food was so disappointing. Maybe we just had an inexperienced chef that night! Otherwise, great experience!
"Warm and friendly hotel."
08/10/14 Scott P London
We stayed three nights at the South Thompson Inn, with a young family aged 7 and 9. We found the staff on the front desk very efficient and very helpful. The room was clean and very comfortable with beautiful views of the river. The staff in the restaurant were brilliant, making my daughter pasta with simple tomato sauces even though it wasn't on the menu. A very restful three nights that felt like home.
08/06/14 DougandKarey-lyn Vancouver, Canada
I found the staff here to be excellent. They were very nice and always willing to help with a smile. I did find the rooms to be out dated and tired. They were kept very clean tho and the pool was very clean although the hot tub looked like it could use a water change. Overall location is picturesque, it's a very good location for peace and quiet. If you want to be close to it all this isn't the location. If you're looking for a peaceful get away with great staff, this is the spot.
"Staff excellent but a bit to be desired"

The front desk gentleman was fabulous and welcoming and the lounge ladies were good. The location is pretty amazing however the hotel is showing its age. Our room had cleanliness issues. Beds were comfy and triple sheeting is wonderful. Ok place to stay if you get a deal.
