Checked in late on a Friday night. Our room had its own bathroom and shower but the room was just barely bigger than the bed. The sink was basically beside the bed. The baseboards in the bathroom were disgustingly dirty. There was a hole in our ceiling where a larger smoke alarm must have been. No TV, no phone which... More

The rooms here were basic but they were clean. The hotel has an interesting history and it was neat staying there. Lots of interesting features in the old building. We didn't have much time to explore but we enjoyed the little time we had. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The lady serving did an excellent job all on her... More

My husband works in BC and this was my first trip out. We planned to visit Barkerville, because I am a geek for that stuff. Upon looking for a place to stay, I found the Wells Hotel, and I count my lucky stars I did. It is just the most beautiful, quaint place to stay. We loved it. Awesome rooms,... More

Cute hotel. Nice little rooftop hot tub which was sorely needed after driving so long and being chilly outside. The food in the restaurant was very very good as well. Was in the "old" part of town which was neat. Nice to walk around and look at all the sights. Hard to find a decent coffee though before 8am but... More

Paid extra to move to larger rooms, but still took a 50% loss on refund when we checked out after just one day. No coffee or tea in rooms or lobby area. Baseboards in our bathroom were rotten and crumbling to pieces. Everything was dingy and the walls in need of paint.There were 6 of us, in 3 rooms. One... More

Stayed just for 1 night. Mark was great and so was Rose. They were very friendly and hospitable. They are the only reason I give the hotel 3 stars . If Mark and Rose hadn't have been so nice, I would have given 1 star. It's difficult to give a review of the hotel as its an old building and... More

We booked ahead of time and got a great room with a view of Wells which was cool. The room was very clean and a good size. The bed was comfortable and there was a vanity was well as the sink in the bathroom which was great for getting ready in the morning. The front desk staff was very nice... More

loved this pub, friendly landlord, decent foor, good real beer not fizzy mass produced (from Quesnel?) pool table, friendly clientele in a hippie-colonised small town revived from goldrush days. etc etc

I recently spent 10 days in Wells for an Artist Workshop and stayed at the Hub. The owners are wonderful folks, who go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. Rooms are clean and beds super comfortable. I had a kitchenette first, then moved to Queen room upstairs, Diane supplied me with a toaster and... More
