The perfect hopping-off point for exploring the mountains, lakes, and rivers of south-central British Columbia, Kamloops sits at the confluence of the north and south forks of the Thompson River, not far from Kamloops Lake. Just north of town, in the mountains, is Sun Peaks Resort, home to hiking, golfing, and mountain biking, as well as a charming European-style village. Meanwhile, Downtown Kamloops boasts a surprisingly robust cultural landscape, with several art galleries, a symphony orchestra, and public art installations scattered throughout town.
Set on 55 beautifully manicured acres just a few minutes from downtown, the boutique 57-room South Thompson Inn Guest Ranch & Conference Centre features four-star accommodations appointed with balconies that offer breathtaking river or mountain views. Each individually designed room is named after either a famous racehorse or a raceway in North America, lending the hotel a sort of Kentucky-in-the-mountains vibe. Many of these luxurious guest rooms feature hardwood floors and Jacuzzi soaker tubs, and all are equipped with high-speed wireless Internet, a flat-screen TV, and plush robes.
The hotel is also home to the excellent Madisens Restaurant and the Bourbon Lounge. A cozy, upscale eatery fit with a fireplace and river and mountain views, Madisens wows with dishes like lobster, duck, and lamb, all served in a white-tablecloth setting complemented by specialty spirits and wine. The Bourbon Lounge is a bit more casual, serving pub food, craft beer, and specialty cocktails, though you'll still have the same front-row view of the mountains and river.
