A great hotel in the middle of Quesnel BC. We stayed in the hotel for 8 nights in the middle of May 2014. We stayed in two suites the Asian suite and the Executive suite. Both were decorated wonderfully, clean and comfortable. The whole hotel was spotless. The reception staff, house keeping and even the owners were friendly and helpful.... More

The room was amazing and an excellent price. The king size bed was the most comfortable we have ever experienced. Very clean. Heated floors in the bathroom. Price worth the upgrade from basic room to suite. Would recommend this hotel if staying in Quesnel. We will be staying again.

Nice hotel, clean comfortable rooms. We stayed here for 2 nights in September while visiting the area. My parents enjoyed the downstairs casino where they spent an hour on the first night. The restaurant was also a nice place to meet up for breakfast. My only Complaint with the hotel is their reservation system, I booked the rooms on booking.com... More

We stayed in the Captain's Suite during a Gold Rush Trail tour in August, 2013. The huge room was decorated as well as Victoria's finest B&B, at a third of the price. A nice touch was the selection of 6 different wines for purchase in the refrigerator and wine bar, but it is a short elevator ride to their liquor... More

We stayed at the Billy Barker Hotel on July 28/13. The price was ok for a room with two double beds....$97. The room was no bigger than a large walk in closet so not a lot of space. Even for our two suitcases! The room is done in period so some nice antique pieces in the room. The beds quite... More

Clean and tidy non-smoking facility. Rooms are furnished with antiques, so each one is different and have a theme. Rooms are a little small, but more than adequate. Staff was friendly and helpful. We were even told about an extra room discount that we qualified for by having a BC casino gaming card. Comfortable bed with super pillows. Two items... More

We have two large dogs and there was no extra charge for them. We told them to stay on their blanket bay the door and they did... More

I stayed at the Billy Barker Casino Hotel when I was on my way to visit historic Barkerville. The hotel is named after Billy Barker who struck gold in Williams Creek 150 years ago and started the Cariboo Gold Rush. So there couldn't have been a better place to stay to get right into the spirit of the Cariboo. The... More

The first thing we noticed about the Billy Barker its unique appearance (the shape of a paddlewheeler) and how clean and beautiful it is! The floral baskets and planters are gorgeous and the grounds are very well maintained. The hotel inside is decorated with many older furnishings and accessories and, because it's an older building, the floors even creak with... More
