The South Thompson Inn & Conference Centre sits on 55 beautiful riverfront acres. The land once housed a Thoroughbred Racing Stable. The brick Manor House and matching Carriage House are the original structures. It was very much a working ranch with valuable horses housed in first class accommodations. A charming site with plenty of character for cocktail receptions, weddings, or a relaxing vacation.
All Guest Rooms at the South Thompson Inn & Conference Centre have been individually designed and bear the name of either a race course or racing town in North America.
The Manor House is a spacious, modern seven-bedroom home providing a spacious, urban country kitchen, great room, five-person private hot tub, private barbecue and large patio overlooking the South Thompson River. The Manor House is perfect for Wedding Parties, Corporate Retreats, Family Reunions, Golf Groups, and more.
The brick Kentucky Style Carriage House once had two over-sized stalls used as foaling or “birthing” stalls. There are two self-contained suites available to guests (‘The Carriage Suites’), which were originally used by the trainers and jockeys allowing them to remain close to their extremely valuable horses. The Carriage Suites’ showers are a reminder of this time in The Inn’s history, when the five-foot shower was a perfect fit for a four-foot jockey! We also have built The Kentucky Suite with a king-sized bed, kitchenette and living room area with a pull out sofa. Perfect for a romantic getaway.
In 1993 The Inn opened, featuring individually decorated guest rooms, an on-site restaurant and a lounge for guests to relax and socialize. Meetings were held in our meeting rooms one of which is named after Canada's famous racehorse Northern Dancer. Outside guests were able to enjoy the swimming pool and hot tub overlooking the South Thompson River.
The South Thompson Inn & Conference Centre continues to enhance each guest experience with yearly upgrades and room renovations giving a whole new look and feel.
