The facility seems a bit worn and outdated. Although the bathroom seemed to have been recently updated, the guest room itself was somewhat sub par. Not enough electric outlets to charge cell phones. Had to move furniture to find an available outlet. The light fixtures were equipped with bright, bright LEDs. Energy saving is commendable but these fixtures were quite...

I don’t know what room you stayed in but 4 or 5 of our rooms are the original Laura Ashley designed rooms. I don’t like them either and will be redoing a couple of them this winter. Some people love them. We have been an early adopter to LED. They are bright. We have tried to put dimmers where necessary....

We chose this spot as a stopover between Lake Louise and Vancouver and based on the ratings. They were a bit generous. Rooms are large and clean but very dated. Could use new carpet and HVAC. Staff was very pleasant. It is about 15-20 minutes from downtown Kamloops and a bit bit out the way,unless you have GPS. The spot...

Thank you for choosing STIGR as your stopover between Lake Louise and Vancouver. Most of our rooms have been completely renovated. Sounds like you stayed in one of our original rooms. When we are busy we have to use them and we do get comments about them. We are going to be working on a couple of these this winter....

Stayed here for a wedding. Excellent location, great weather, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. What this hotel lacks in catering experience and food, it makes up for in all the other aspects of hospitality. I would recommend folks stay here, if visiting the region from afar. If planning a wedding, you may want to see if they allow for outside...

Thank you for mentioning our friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Sorry to hear your thoughts on our catering experience and food.

25 kms from town centre of Kamloops along the South Thompson river. Kentucky style ranch and a golf course. Magnificent rooms with large terrace. Views of the ranch, golf course and river. Excellent value for price. Good food for dining and lunch. Very quiet place. Relax time! Friendly and helpful staff.

Beautiful setting outside of town. Lots of places to walk and golf if you choose. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the bed was very comfy. We had a nice view of the river from our balcony. Staff very friendly. Food was good at the restaurant in the hotel.

To start with, the place is hard to find, as per what they say on their website. As well as that, the entrance does not have the full name of the place, and you will find when you get there, there are a few places that start with 'Sth Thompson Hotel' etc. Once you find it though, its great.
