I booked this motel with the purpose of visiting Barkerville over a three day period. We should have allowed four! It was cheaper than the accommodation in or nearer Barkerville. The Hubs was clean, basic but comfortable in a great location around 6-7 km, around 5-6 minutes drive from Barkerville. There is a "fish and chips" outlet on-site if you... More

The Hubs is a clean, comfortable motel in a great location near Barkerville and surrounding lakes and trails. Halibut and chips from the on-site location were an unusual treat! The adjacent Bear Paw restaurant serves superb cooked evening meals, and the Wells Hotel is the place to go for breakfast. Miles of empty road for the bike or jog or... More

Booked this from England having heard that the Bowron Lake Lodge was run by a madman (i'm in the business myself in France and if you annoy the customers...) Anyway, we arrived late having driven all day from Vancouver for the Bowron Lakes circuit (what a blast!) we were accommodated nicely, had a meal in the local pub which was... More

My sister and I with spouse spent 2 days visiting Barkerville after 30 plus years to turnover our father's memorabilia to the museum. (He had been in the Barkerville show from 1962 to 1976) We chose the Hub for comfort. My sister and I are somewhat handicapped. Diane gave us 2 rooms on the ground floor for easy access and... More

We picked this hotel for the location. There were four of us so we'd booked a room with two beds, upon arrival we heard it was our lucky day. They had no rooms left with two beds, therefore gave us 2 separate rooms for the cost of the one room. My husband was having heartburn issues and Diane was kind... More

We are a motorcycle group (Okanagan Motorcycle Riders Association) with members that went on a ride to Barkerville this July 2014. Proprietors Dianne and Harold gave excellent and personal care to our group and took extrs measures to make our stay welcoming and comfortable. Some of these added touches were the wood bike-stand plates for our bikes and the yummy... More

We stayed there before going the Bowron circuit and stopped there again before returning. I have to mention the fact that Diane, the owner, really went the extra mile to solve a car key trouble that we had, and with a few phone calls saved us a great deal of time and money. Super kind with kids, always trying to... More

Sure I've stayed here before, but the thing that strikes me about this place is the owner's dedication to improvement... Its always good, but its always improving with each visit. This last trip featured new bath tub and sink. The movie selection is always growing and the delicious cookies are as good as ever. I'm a big fan!

This is a basic motel, don't expect pools, fitness centres, fancy plumbing, etc. But it makes up for it with a large TV and DVD player, with an enormous selection of DVDs to borrow (free) from the office - and great home-made cookies at the office too. The room is of adequate size with a table provided. the need for... More

My stay was excellent. Diane was so friendly from the day we arrived and helped us with anything we needed. She provided fresh baked cookies daily and clean bowls and spoons for us to have a breakfast with. She even provided my 3rd night free after my friend couldn't make it to join me (we were going to split). The... More
