This hotel is right in the middle of town, the rooms are lovely, all different and mine had some lovely old furniture in it. The staff were really nice and helpful as well. The view out the window was not very special.

Hilary; thank you for taking time to write a review about your stay. Unfortunately we can't do anything about the view from the hotel but we are only two blocks away from a beautiful, river side walking trail. I hope the interior of the hotel and service provided by the staff made up for the lack of scenery. More

My boyfriend and I stayed in Parisian Room. We were astounded by how nice the room is, especially for the price.It had everything! A huge and very comfortable king bed with amazing sheets and blankets. A jacuzzi tub big enough for two. A walk out balcony with patio furniture so you can sit and relax outside. The decor is great... More

Thank you for staying with us and providing a review. The Parisian is a beautiful suite, as are the other three, but it is the only one that has the jetted tub. It is so nice when guests check into one of the luxury suites they are pleasantly surprised. We do appreciate feed back from our guests to know if... More

After reading the reviews I figured it was a great place to stay. The rooms are unique and very clean. The hotel has a very homey feeling to it. We had arrived at 2am and our keys were ready for us as we walked in so all we had to do was hit the hay. We had one of the... More

Thank you for taking time to provide us with your experience during your recent stay. I am happy to hear that check in was quick and easy for you as you were probably tired arriving at that time of morning. The housekeeping staff will be pleased to know their efforts don’t go without notice. More

Over whelmed by the attentiveness, warmth and atmosphere of this hotel and every employee that we encountered. Our room was furnished in a "gold rush era" theme, as is most of the hotel aparently. Not very large room but very comfortable for two and excellent beds. Miini fridge and coffee maker, housekeeping delivered more very good coffee sachets within minutes.... More

Thank you for your kind review. I am sorry that the Wi-Fi was not good in your room as we do have two rooms that are having reception issues compared to the rest of the hotel. On your next visit we hope to have that rectified but you can always ask to be sure. The attentiveness of staff can make... More

I stayed at this hotel for three nights, April 16, 17 & 18, 2015, while I attended the Quesnel Country Bluegrass Jamboree from April 16 to 19. The hotel gave anyone attending the music festival a preferred rate, most of whom are seniors, including myself. Our room was on the third floor, south side, overlooking the Service BC offices. My...

Thank you for taking time to review the Billy Barker Casino Hotel. I am sorry to hear that there was an issue with the ventilation system.

We stayed in two different suites over the weekend - the Captain's and the Executive. Both were spacious, tastefully decorated and had comfortable beds, roomy showers, and good TVs. We usually stay in 4 and 5 star hotels in larger cities, so we were worried about what we'd be getting in Quesnel. These rooms were a pleasant surprise. The downsides... More

Thank you for your reviews of two of our luxury suites. We are very proud of our suites and have been told they are comparable to much more costly rooms in 4 or 5 star hotels. I am glad that the Executive suite didn’t disappoint. We have acted on your comment regarding the light issues in the Captain’s suite and... More

We visit with friends in Quesnel often and prefer to have our own room and amenities and play some slots. We've stayed here several times over the 2014 year and plan more visits in the future. Most of the rooms are quite small but you have everything you need and the rooms are very clean and well maintained. Each room... More

The room is decorated in the 1800's, with each room being different. The antiques are original. The room very pleasant, comfortable and homey. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. We've stayed here a couple of times and would stay again
