The Billy Barker Hotel has nicely refurbished rooms. The beds are comfy, but the bathrooms are tiny, which is to be expected for such an old property. The history in the building is wonderful. The restaurant served a great breakfast. The food and the rooms were very affordable. The only drawback was the length of time it took to check... More

We recently travelled to Quesnel for a hockey tournament and our team had the pleasure of staying at the Billy Barker. From the minute we walked into the hotel we were blown away! The lobby renovations are beautiful! Our family stayed in one of the suites and it was just as nice as any boutique hotel room we have stayed... More

We stayed here on a road trip. Price was reasonable. Rooms are on the small size but clean with decent washroom and comfortable bed. They have gone for a homey, old time look with some antiques and country clutter! It was nice and quiet on the third floor.

Laurie; Thank you for the review. Being a historic themed hotel we have kept some of the antiques that many of our guests enjoy but have also gave the hotel a modern upgrade. I hope you will visit us again. More

Stayed at this hotel for a night. The room was clean and furnished nicely. Bed was comfortable and staff was great. The location was near the center of town and allowed for some afternoon strolling. The little casino provided a chance to have some fun and meet a few locals.

We stayed two nights in Aug. and found the rooms very comfortable and homey. The beds were excellent, the room was clean (actually totally spotless) but most of all I loved the antique furniture in the room. I felt like I was staying at my grandmother's house. The air conditioner was on the entire stay due to the 30C+ temp.... More
