Picked this hotel as it was one of the cheaper ones with good reviews when I was looking for a place to stay on my way back to Alberta from Vancouver. I booked online through Expedia (tripadvisor had it listed as the site that had the best deal) when I was passing through Hope.
When I first walked into the hotel, my jaw kind of dropped, it was gorgeous! Its either very new or newly renovated.
The rooms are super spacious, like really spacious. Probably double the size of the average hotel room. Blown away yet again. Lots of storage between the dresser/desk and armoire, as well as the fridge and coffee area.
Went down to the pool area to relax a bit before going out to eat. There isn’t really much in there. Some deck chairs/loungers and the towels were on a cart in the corner. There is a change room/washroom just outside of it as well a small shower and a dry sauna (which I had totally forgotten about until writing this and sad I didn’t try it out!). There’s a salt water pool as well as a hot tub. The pool was nice and warm so it was great to swim around a bit before going into the hot tub. The hot tub wasn’t too big, which is fine when there aren’t many ppl there, but when I went back later after eating, there was a group trickling in when I was sitting in it so I didn’t stay as long as I might’ve if it wasn’t getting busy. When I went back after eating, they had run out of pool towels and front desk were telling ppl to bring towels from their rooms. it was warm enough in the hallways that I just walked back to my room without drying off. Overall the atmosphere of the pool area was very nice. Its in the center of the hotel with interior rooms overlooking and some pathways to other areas of the hotel.
Very glad I stayed here and makes me want to make a stop in Kamloops next time I’m in the area just to stay again! Definitely impressed!
Top of town, spacious and clean
Review 2 of 7 for Canada: This was a one-night stay whilst travelling for 2 days on the Rocky mountaineer train. Situated at the top of town with a shuttle bus to the town. Large clean room with 2 double beds and a distant mountain view. The hotel boasts an internal ‘stream’ and landscaping leading to a small pool and a whirl pool. V soft towels and a v comfy bed. We would have preferred to have been based nearer the town. It has an eatery with also a decking which has views overlooking the mountains if you get in early – we didn’t! – however we did have a drink there after the diners had gone.
Very spacious suite
Really the only downfall with this hotel was that it has no guest breakfast included. The rest was very nice. The room was the most spacious on our trip. The indoor pools are great when you have children as they had a shallow pool for younger kids. Lots of parking and the room amenities and room service were top notch.
Stayed here as part of the Rocky Mountaineer train package in room 232. Comfortable and spacious, very quiet too which was nice for a change. We had no need for engaging with hotel staff as we got our access to the room from the train staff, but they appeared uniformly dressed and friendly enough. Wi-fi was good here also.

Nice hotel but starting to show its age
Have stayed her before, primarily because of location. Rooms are adequate. A bit dated but clean. All amenities that are required are there. The restaurant is a bit highly priced and service could be improved. Food quality was good. The reception staff are friendly and accommodating.
