This 'heritage' place is a little old and creaky but not enjoyably historic.
we liked the location and the combination of hotel + liquor store + restaurant all in one. Very nice concept. Kamloops itself has not much to offer, so it is nice to at least have a place to stay that has.
I liked the whole concept that the hotel held a heritage look. It was very classy yet very unique. I loved the old style/country feeling.
Within walking distance of downtown restaurants and other businesses; also short taxi rides. Altho we didn't use public transportation, we noticed that there appears to be good bus service. We appreciated having been given breakfast vouchers.
The staff was friendly and couteous, the room was tidy, the bathroom was spacious, it was a great stay.
I felt it was a bit over priced, but I don't know Kamloops rates, so that could just be me. Also, the room was quite small. Big enough for me and my small pup, but I wouldn't have wanted to be acouple in there.
Charming, surprisingly clean, needs new carpets however Amazing fucking resturant underneath Called Rocksalt. Staff was AMAZING. Loved the ice water with lemons and Limes in the lobby.
The room was very comfortable and had old world charm. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant had simple but delicious food and very good value.
Could not fault it at all.
Bed was very comfortable. Room recently totally refurbish. Room rate included a breakfast but allowed no substitutions. The breakfast, scrambled eggs, toast, country fries, and coffee, was tasty and presented very nicely. There are many restaurants located in the immediate area, and at least one, Rick's, was very good and attracted an upscale clientele. We felt safe walking on Victoria Avenue late at night even though it was nearly deserted like most downtown city streets. Hotel is within easy walk of the waterfront park; during summer 2010, there were daily concerts and the bandstand.
As I recall, hotel was built about 1920, so it has a very small and slow elevator, but it does have a wide and attractive stairway. Most people used the stairs to get to their rooms. Parking is in an open lot next to the hotel; I was certain to make sure that people looking in through the windows could see that nothing of value had been left in the hotel. Typical of all downtown city locations, there were a one or two socially isolated individuals on the street, but none were offensive.
This is an historic hotel, typical of the first three decades of the 20th century. As such it has a certain attractiveness - although I'm sure this will be of interest to a minority of people. Availability of free Internet access and car parking arrangements were the main general positives.
We felt, in retrospect, that Kamloops is not the place to stay for any length of time - no fault of the hotel. My answer to the following question is based on the location - not the hotel or the staff. The second question below is not applicable as I didn't read any reviews! (You need a not applicable option)
My wife and I really did not like the hotel at all, we would not have stayed there more than a one night...
The hotel is a very old bulding and the rooms' design need a major revamp...one could say that the rooms are very crouded, uncomfortable. The bathroom is so small that it is very uncomfortable.
an unusual hotel, but worthy of a good 8/10. very central and friendly only fault if any is car park, which is right next door, but open.
no faults -accept the hotel as old but very well maintained.
The location is the best. It is within walking distance of everything in downtown Kamloops and when we stay there we dont have to worry about cleanliness. We know its clean. We also stay there once a year with the Watchtower Society. Everyone aggrees.
The free breakfast and the friendly staff in Rock Salt restaurant.
Our room was located on the same floor as the hotel staff room. Their radio was on all day long and we can hear them talking loudly and clearly even in our room. It was very noisy and disturbed our sleep. When we finally fall asleep the fire alarm rang around 6am without any reason. We went downstairs and waited for around 15 mins until it stopped. Then it rang again for another few minutes after we lay down in bed. We couldn't really get back to sleep after all these disturbances and felt really tired. The hotel staff didn't explain why the alarm rang nor showing any sorriness about what had happened. We stayed in Kamloops just because we needed a stop point. Would definitely avoid this location next time! Try those hotels next to Trans Canadian Highway if you're looking for a short stay.
Nice rooms and very clean.
The pillows were horrible! Also, the window should be able to be openable. You might consider a semi-shear blind or drape rather then the opaque blinds... It would allow some natural light into the interior rooms while reducing your electrical lighting bills. Opening windows would also reduce your air conditioning load by quite a bit.
The hotel was historical and quaint. The decorations were interesting and the location allowed for easy walking to see the downtown area. The price was reasonable with a clean room even though the room was small (similar to the era).
The hotel had bums begging for money outside regularly and the parking lot was small with extreme crowding for any vehicle that was not a compact in size. The parking lot was not secure and made it difficult to leave anything in the vehicle as it only left it as a target requiring all items to be secured in the room. The floor did not allow for a ramp to access the hotel rooms on the 2nd floor to take the luggage cart close to the room door. Only one luggage cart made it difficult to move baggage when it seemed always in use. No room safe either.
