The confluence of rivers, the rolling mountains peaks – the charming city of Kamloops, in British Columbia, Canada, draws visitors throughout the year for its paddling, skiing and general good looks. All that outdoor fun means it’s a great spot to bring your pet, and there are plenty of hotels catering to four-legged friends. Here we reveal the best pet-friendly hotels in Kamloops – bookable on Culture Trip.

Wingate by Wyndham Kamloops, to be close to the Trans-Canada Highway

Set south of the chocolate-box downtown, just off the Trans-Canada Highway, this expansive hotel is a great base for exploring the area. It has a contemporary feel throughout, from the spacious guest rooms to the dining room. If you’re on a working vacation, rooms include desk spaces and kitchenettes so you can whip up hot drinks as you go. On the amenities front, the indoor pool is a real perk, and the perfect place to unwind after taking your pooch for a romp through McArthur Island Park.

Delta Hotels Kamloops, to be at the heart of downtown

Slap bang in the heart of downtown Kamloops, this hotel places you in the heart of the action, so you can roll out of bed and straight for morning walkies with your pooch. While the property has a cool contemporary feel, there’s a peppering of accessories that pay homage to the area, from cow-print seats in the lobby to framed indigenous-style dreamcatchers in bedrooms. Along with a prime location, another lure of this hotel is its outdoor pool, lined with sunloungers.

The Thompson Hotel and Conference Centre, for a romantic atmosphere

Pampered pets will enjoy the cozy and romantic atmosphere at this hotel, which features generously proportioned bedrooms decked out in blush-pink hues. This spot wins when it comes to amenities, with an indoor pool and a 24-hour games room with foosball, air hockey and arcade games among the offerings. The breakfast here is another perk, with waffle machines and a selection of fresh-baked pastries. There are also many dog-friendly eateries on the doorstep, if you fancy dipping into something different.

Fuel up for a day of adventure at this hotel, which offers a delicious complimentary breakfast featuring a make-your-own-pancake stand and ample maple syrup. On the accommodation side of the things, the rooms feature a spread of blue hues and wave-printed carpets that echo the waters of the two merging Thompson rivers nearby. Let the location of this property, near the Trans-Canada Highway, tempt you to explore wider British Columbia with your four-legged friend in tow.

The Hue Hotel, for winter sports

Skiers and winter-sports lovers will be wooed by the location of this hotel, as it’s just outside the town center, meaning there’s less traffic to battle en route to the slopes of Sun Peaks. While your pet might not be bothered about the skiing, they probably will appreciate your proximity to the Aberdeen Mall, the largest shopping center in the area, where you can buy them a treat. After a day of hitting the slopes, the rooms here are ideal places to return to, with silvery hues creating a luxurious and cozy feel.

Sandman Signature Kamloops Hotel, to be near Riverside Park

Moments from the leafy Riverside Park stretched along the banks of the South Thompson River, Sandman Signature is a prime pick if you’ve got a dog that needs a lot of exercise. Not that it’s all about your pet – book in here and you’ll get to enjoy plenty of human benefits too, including a pool and whirlpool, fitness center and free parking. The bedrooms are dressed in lavender and grey hues, and – in some cases – come with views over the verdant park.

The Plaza Hotel, for an old-world vibe

The Plaza Hotel has been welcoming visitors to Kamloops since 1928, and though a few things have changed over the years, it still channels a classical old-world vibe. Antique-style furnishings and regal gold-and-red tones set the scene at this pet-friendly property. If you need a bit of pampering, the wellness facilities include free drop-in yoga classes where you can practice your downward dog, access to Kamloops YMCA/YWCA gym and discounts at a local organic spa.

Best Western Plus Kamloops Hotel, for the pool complex

While Fido might not be able to take advantage of it, you’re sure to love the pool complex at Best Western Plus – there’s a large, indoor salt water pool, as well as a hot tub for steamy winter soaking. What your dog can enjoy, however, is the proximity to the great British Columbian outdoors (you’re just outside of town here) and the homey rooms with cozy armchairs for curling up in. The hotel is eco-conscious too, with geothermal heating, electric vehicle charging stations and biodegradable cutlery at breakfast.
