Stayed here two nights in mid August to visit family. Booked thru Hotwire and got a great deal, only issue was that Hotwire did not state the type of beds. We ended up with a double and a twin, didn't think we would fit but the double was surprisingly very comfortable. Only drawback was that they only had a Sunday... More

We are happy you found the beds comfortable. A lot of guests do compliment us on how comfortable the beds are. It is unfortunate that you stayed one of the few times that we offer a breakfast buffet and didn't want it. The breakfast buffet is usually only offered on occasions like Father's Day, Mother's Day, New Years Day or... More

Our family stayed one night in our way to Barkerville. We ended up booking two rooms as we were a family of four. One room had two singles and the other had a queen. Worked out well for us. The toilet in one of the rooms kept running after it was flushed, put in a call to front deak who... More

I would like to start with thanking you for your business. This is a family owned independent hotel so every guest is important to us. I am sorry that no one came to see what was wrong with your toilet or fix the problem. We are actually going to start replacing the bathrooms in the next few months so those... More

Stayed here before and it's a great place, very reasonable prices and a really unique experience. However, returned today and check in was terrible. Receptionist started to check us in then answered the phone and completely ignored us. Manager came to desk, recognised her friend and checked them in leaving us still standing there. EVENTUALLY when the receptionist had finished... More

Thank you for your feed back. In order to address your complaint about your check in experience I would need to know the date and approximate time of your arrival. It is not our practice to choose one guest over another but at times a manager will take the next person in line. I am sorry you felt slighted by... More

From the high level of attention I received at the very no-nonsense check-in, to the great "special" available in the adjacent restaurant, this is the spot to stay in when in Quesnel! Places to walk, a casino, and a terrific movie theatre close-by make this a great property. Good, quiet rooms-even the standard room was full of character, with a... More

The hotel was very clean and quiet. The rooms were decorated in period - like staying at grandmother's house. The bathroom had full pressure water and shower spray, and instant hot water. The food in the bar was delicious. The price for the stay was equal to other hotels but the quality was superior. I would most definitely stay here... More

We planned a last minute family trip to Barkerville and had troubles finding a reasonably priced hotel for our large family. Linda and Marg provided top notch customer service while checking us in. Linda offered to bring me upstairs to show me the rooms she felt were best suited for our family instead of describing rooms. The shift manager ensured... More

My dad and I stopped here on our road trip and we were very impressed! The staff were very friendly and the decor alone is worth the visit, like an old gold rush hotel. Very clean rooms, hot water ran out pretty quick but all in all it was a great little hotel! My only advice is don't bother with... More

Just an overnight stay heading north. Check in and check out were quick. The hotel had all amenities required plus a small lower level casino which was a bonus. Rooms were age period decorated, but comfy. The exterior of the hotel is designed like an old steam paddle wheel ship...very cool. We had a very good stay, I would recommend... More

Hi Nate; I am happy to hear that everything went well except for the early sun rise. Thank you for suggesting people book on the west side of the hotel if they want to avoid the morning sun. Unfortunately we only have that problem for a few months of the year as the days are already getting shorter. I hope... More

We've been to the Billy Barker several times during our family visits to Quesnel. Always a pleasure. Rich history of the area is front and centre at the Billy. Locals as well as visitors love it and the owners and staff love us back. This is what real Western hospitality is all about. Now, with the recent updates all we... More

Dawn; I too think having coffee on the balcony of one of our suites is a great way to start your day especially when the balcony suites don't cost extra. To ensure you get a suite with a balcony you must call and make your reservation directly with the hotel. We have a toll free line 1-833-792-5533 More

Excellent value for this quaint, very clean, quiet hotel. Who would have thought a casino hotel with an attached bar and near the highway would be quiet - but it was. even the air conditioner was quiet! I will certainly stay there again.
