The Trivago Awards 2017 celebrate the best properties in Canada
The wait is over. The world’s largest hotel search engine,, is pleased to announce the best properties in Canada — based entirely on guest reviews. Chosen for their outstanding service, reputation for excellence, and performance, the 2nd annual trivago Awards recognize the 10 best-rated properties in Canada in four different categories; 5-Star, 4-Star, 3-Star, and Alternative Accommodation.
How did trivago choose these properties? We didn’t.
With user ratings gathered from 34 hotel, booking, and review sites across the web, we’ve created the trivago Rating Index (tRI)*, a comprehensive, transparent and unbiased index for hotel ratings. A perfect tRI score is 100%, and is simply a compilation of all reviews and ratings of each property. Only the highest-rated hotels with prices on and at least 150 tRI ratings and reviews made the lists.
Johannes Thomas, Managing Director at trivago said: “We aggregate and analyse more than 175 million hotel reviews from websites all over the world. This gives us strong insights into what hotels are particularly good at.” He added: “Our trivago awards recognize those hoteliers who deliver an exceptional experience to their guests, and we are proud and delighted to award those achievements.”

We have our historical street name Back!
Short history of the property:
Tanemura road: now the 20th Ave SE: Ichitaro Tanemura came to Canada as a young man, he worked in a hotel at the coast before arriving in Salmon Arm in 1910. Together with his brother George and his brother in law he formed a partnership and started farming in the South Canoe area.
In 1906 a school was build on the Tanemura road at the location the Inn at the ninth hole is located now.
The school opened on March 12th 1906 and was closed in 1950 and the building was used as a private home since 1995. A fire drill made an end to home to make place for the Inn. The school was build by the firm of Jackson for the grand sum of $ 1700.00
