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

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

Thank you for taking time to provide a review. It is great news that your stay was an enjoyable one and I am glad you brought up room styles as we actually have 5 different layouts. Our standard rooms have either a queen bed, a double bed & a twin bed or 2 beds that are 3/4 double size. We... More

Wow! I would have never guessed that the City of Quesnel has such a nice hotel located in very convenient location. We stayed in executive suite located on room 301! Spacious room, heated marvel bathroom floor, separate king size bedroom with TV, and living room with sofa bed, microwave, mini fridge, and nicely equipped kitchen! I would definitely recommend it...

My husband and I stayed in the "Parisian Room", a themed room on Dec 24th and 25th. This room has absolutely everything you could want... heated floor around the jaccuzi tub, the king bed was just as exactly soft as I needed it for my bad back, the decor was perfect, nothing was out of place. This was one of... 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

Thank you for the review. While we do showcase many antiques throughout the hotel the restaurant, lobby and lounge are all brand new but decorated with a "rustic modern" flare. I am glad that you plan on staying with us again and look forward to offering you our best service possible. More

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

I am sorry to hear that there was a delay while you where at check in. There are times when only one reservation clerk is available such as when the other clerk is on a break. I hope this wasn't too long of a wait for you. I hope we provide you with better service on your next visit. Thank... 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!

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.
