“A Place Worth Staying At!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

I have never had the opportunity to meet and interact with such a dynamic bunch of ladies, the staff at Lakeview are awesome. Their complete concern is full customer service which is hard to come by these days. The rooms have been updated lately making them clean, fresh and an enjoyable experience. If needed they have wheelchair accessible rooms with lots of space. Breakfast is always great, with lots of room to sit.The hotel is well located to the downtown of Thompson making it easy to get around by foot or car. Coffe is always on along with a smile, a combination worth stopping in for.

This is a good, clean place to stay when in Thompson. I was there for a trip into Northern Manitoba by small plane and float plane and they let me leave some excess luggage on property while I was gone. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a little sparse but did the job.

Room Tip: No need to get a suite unless you have children. While the suite I was in had a hide-a-bed, the extr...

I have been travelling to Thompson once a month for close to 20 years and the vast majority of my stays have been at the Lakeview (or its previous iteration as Country Inn). I have tried every other hotel in town and have always returned to Lakeview for one reason or another.

The guest services are excellent on check-in. The staff welcome me by name when I arrive (which isn't a surprise given the frequency at which I am there), and I have noticed that they often acknowledge other guests' arrival in the same manner. I believe that they are regularily checking the day's bookings so that they can greet everyone by name.

The rooms that I usually get are suites with a living room/sitting area that has a fridge, sink and microwave. There is a large TV on the wall and usually a DVD player [sometimes the DVD player is connected to the TV in the bedroom]. I have had occasional problems with the TV/DVD system not working and have had to change systems or move to a different room. If a DVD is important to your stay, I would test out the system when you first arrive before you unpack. Alternatively, you can phone the front desk the day of your arrival and ask them to ensure that the room you have has a working DVD. There is a large selection of DVD's available at the front desk at no charge. There is also a bookshelf with a number of books that you can borrow.

The bedroom is sufficiently large (some with Kings and some with 2 beds [Queen or double -- I'm not sure] with large desk top TV. The beds are very comfortable and there is a large supply of pillows. The bed coverings are new, having all been replaced a few years ago.

It is an older hotel, and there are the occasional signs of wear and tear (a nick here and a scratch there) but it was repainted over that past couple of years and is looking pretty good.

There is available a breakfast every morning, both hot and cold. My biggest complaint about the breakfast is with regards to toasters -- even on high, they seem to take almost a minute and a half to produce a medium-dark piece of toast. Otherwise, there is a wide selection of breakfast items -- coffee, tea, juices, milk, bagels, several breads, cereals (hot and cold), muffins, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, freshly-made waffles, and sausage or bacon (or, sometimes both).

Lakeview Inn is located accross the street from Pizza Hut, Subway and A&W, a just ablock and a half away from Adventurer's North, where you can get, what I feel is the best prime rib in the province, if not in the country.

A point about the ratings below -- I gave 4 out of 5 for 'rooms' and 'restaurant', but would have prefered to give 4 1/2 out of 5 if I could. The rooms could use a little bit more sprucing up and I have had a (very) few occasions where housekeeping did a less-than-ideal job. Because there is is not an actual restaurant but a self-serve, I took off a half point.

Room Tip: If you have mobility issues, stay on the first floor -- there is no elevator. The better (and mor...

My husband and I spent the weekend there for our anniversary. The hotel manager Michelle exceeding guest excellence. My husband kept it a surprise and Michelle had went out of her way and placed flowers in our room that my husband had ordered to surprise me. She also directed us to a fabulous restaurant. She made us feel right at home. We also enjoyed the newly renovated oasis with the great hot tub and sauna. We had the perfect weekend in this great, friendly, clean hotel. I would stay there again in a second and have hold all our friends. Thank you for,your great hospitality Michelle!!! AAA plus

In 2002, Thompson Operation Red Nose was looking for a place to host us for the Christmas season. We approached the manager of the then Country Inn and Suites. Without hesitation they said yes to givin us a space to use. That year was the start of what has become a long lasting relationship, which has continued with the Lakeview Inn and Suites. The 1st few years we were given a suite to use and at their own cost, had a new phone line istalled for us. After a couple years they couldn't provide us with the suite as it was rented out long term, so the staff asked us if we would like to use the front area, where they provide the free breakfasts. We said yes. After a few nights, our Red Nose volunteers and the hotel staff decided that we would really like to be out front. It gave us greater exposure to the hotel guests, allowed us access to a wheelchair accessible washroon...allowing us to increase our volunteers, and we didn't have to worry about bothering our neighbours with any noise we might be making.
With the increase in call volume, we needed to have 2 more phone lines installed, which Lakeview Inn helped us with.
Having us out front also makes it easier for the front desk staff to promote our services, as the guests always ask who we are and what we are doing.
This year we are celebrating being 'at home' at the Lakeview Inn and suites for 11years. Our volunteers know that the Lakeview Inn and Suites is the home for Thompson Operation Red Nose and they know where to come and volunteer a night of driving or answering phones and dispatching.
If we did not have our home, it woudl be an absolute struggle every year to find a place. This allows us to use our resources in other ways, like promoting the program and encouraging people not to drink and drive.
THANK-YOU to Lakeview Inn and Suites for your continued support!!!!

We stayed in a double suite with our two small boys. We were treated well and enjoyed our stay. The staff was pleasant to deal with. However, the room felt a little dated, and the sliding patio door at the front did not slide smoothly.

Dear Dennis and Audrey,

Thank you for your recent comment regarding the patio doors that were not working for your stay here. We are in the process of changing out our patio doors due to the weather conditions here in the north. We hope you enjoyed your stay and will come back to visit us again real soon!

Sincerely,
Michelle
