The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with much praise going to the hotel's staff, rooms, breakfast and location.

Many lodgers praised the hotel's staff, characterizing them as friendly, attentive, accommodating and efficient. One patron remarked, "He and his friendly, efficient staff looked after us so well during our 8 days that we felt that we had just been staying with family and friends. They certainly went above and beyond what would normally be expected in a hotel service. Other guests obviously felt the same and there was more socialising because of it".

The hotel's accommodations were enjoyed by numerous reviewers. They described their rooms as quiet, clean and spacious, with comfortable beds and linens. A couple of guests had complaints about their rooms, however (see below).

Several travellers were pleased with the hotel's breakfast. They found it to be varied, delicious, excellent and amazing.

The hotel's location was convenient for several guests. They described it as relaxing and close to skiing, hiking, Kamloops, a grocery store and Sun Peaks Village.
