Everything about this hotel was impeccable, from the friendly staff, to the beautiful rooms, to thick towels, to the amazing surroundings and the sweet peaches we could pick ourselves. Wow! If you're anywhere near Kamloops, this is the ONLY place you should even consider stopping at.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your review and I love the title of it! The peaches are great and we love our guests enjoying them right off the tree. We also have plums, apples, grapes and cherries.

We chose the hotel as a stopover en route from Vancouver to Jasper. However the hotel offers much more than that. We enjoyed an excellent stay fully utilising the hotel facilities and also had a superb dinner in the hotel restaurant (with personalised menus a very nice touch). Continental breakfast was freshly prepared and offered great value. The staff are...

We spent 4 nights at this wonderful property on the July 2015 long weekend. We wanted accommodation outside of Kamloops that would let us bring our dog, and be a central location for golf. It is even nicer than the pictures portray. And the service was outstanding. Very friendly staff. The horses and lamas aren't really staff, but they were...

Beautiful property, comfortable rooms, nice robes and excellent service makes for a wonderful stay. Nice little lounge and restaurant. While the food is good, I would like to see it brought up a notch. You can get a continental breakfast but no hot breakfast or just have coffe in their library

This is a beautifully maintained hotel. Rooms are pristine in white. Bathrobes and gorgeous bathroom make it a delight when coming from the National Parks. On the river bank. Lovely short walks. Good food for dinner and a good breakfast buffet. Highly recommend.
