The Inn at Spences Bridge was built as a relaxing stopover for weary travellers. Continuing the tradition, The Inn offers 12 renovated and uniquely decorated guest rooms. All rooms are one of a kind and decorated to enhance the quality of your stay. Many have private baths, spectacular views of the river, the valley and the railways, and two have private balconies. All rates include a continental breakfast. Weekly rates are available for guest who wish to linger a bit longer…

DINING
Our dining room offers breakfast for our guests and can be available for on-site catered meals for private groups who wish to rent the whole hotel for intimate weddings, reunions, celebrations or retreats.

HISTORY, WILDLIFE, OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AND SO MUCH MORE…
There are local area activities to suit all interests. Here are some of the many things you can find to do in the area:  fishing in the river and many local lakes, mountain biking on the Kettle Valley Railway bicycle trail (or on the many small Forest roads in the area), whitewater rafting, motorcycling up famous Highway 8,gold panning, geo-caching, visiting the Hells Gate rapids, kayaking, hiking, bird watching, the Hat Creek Historical Ranch, golf, historic Ashcroft and its fabulous museum,  local rodeos, Ashcroft Manor, or just find a quiet spot and watch the river flow by.

The Thompson River provides ample opportunities for anglers of all abilities. During the summer there is an outstanding trout fishery that is not very well known. Being part of the Fraser River system we also get various limited openings for salmon. There are also dozens of lakes within a couple of hours drive from here. Please check the latest fishing regulations for any restrictions.

BIRD WATCHING
Our patio is a world famous location of many of many species including some rare ones that are endangered. Aside from an abundance of the common interior BC birds including eagles, owls, and osprey, the rare varieties include chukars, vaux swifts, and lewis woodpeckers.

TRAIN WATCHING
Our hotel is the only hotel in Canada where you can watch two Class 1 railways. Being on a valley bottom on the Trans-Canada corridor we have railways on both sides of the river with the CP line less than 30 meters (100 feet) from the front door and the CN track on the other side. There is a siding and small yard of several tracks on the CP side. The two railways as well as Via and Rocky Mountaineer share the tracks through the canyon so there is only one way traffic on each side of the river which minimizes the noise of the 25 plus trains a day each way.
