Smallest room I've ever stayed in. Probably the only one (except hostels) without a tv. Was fairly bright though and had free Wi-Fi. Breakfast was kind of lacking, there wasn't even any tea set out. Ok as a base when you're mostly going to be out and about, I wouldn't want to hang around in it for too long though.

Stayed here for two nights on a motorcycle trip with another couple. As soon as we arrived and were shown our rooms...we had to immediately ask for something bigger....first room had only a bed that you could barely walk around, no chair, no nothing! Second room was a bit bigger but in need of a good cleaning...baseboards were filthy as... More

We had a great time at the Wells Hotel! It's not fancy, but it's unique and lots of fun. We went down to the Pub and enjoyed a glass of wine. While we were there water began to drip from the ceiling, so buckets were placed on the floor to catch the drips. The pipes are old (original to something... More

The Hotel was magnificent with all you would expect of old wold charm being built in 1933 through the gold rush. Owner Mark and staff where truly amazing! The food and service at the hotel was exceptional and Mark's selection of Scotch in the bar rivals thoughs anywhere in the world.

We have been staying at the Wells Hotel for a week and very much enjoy it. We have one more night before heading home. We are here for a week long harp school. I am here to explore the history of the area. There is a great heritage mining town 8km away called Barkerville where gold mining began around 1860.... More

Loved the Wells hotel, set us back in time, the rooms are clean and quaint. Took a walk and enjoyed talking to the locals, very friendly. Would recommend to anyone. small, no tv's but that worked out well. My Niece was a little disappointed the hot tub was closed during our stay.

After reading some reviews from this page, I was a little apprehensive about the state of the room. We arrived in the afternoon and were pleasantly surprised to see a nice clean, renovated older hotel. Knowing that this is a heritage building, it was not a rundown, old feel. It felt like well kept antiques. The food was great, the... More

My wife and daughter were visiting Barkerville as part of a multi-day school field trip. I decided to bring our young son up and join them. The Hub Motel was full so I decided to take a room at the Wells Hotel for the night. The room rate seemed a little high considering the size and lack of amenities but... More

My wife and I stayed at the Wells Hotel after our week-long canoe trip on Bowron Lakes. We had stayed at Hubs Motel a week earlier and were thrilled with our experience, but Hubs Motel was full when we returned, so we had to stay at the Wells Hotel. The staff was friendly, but rushed. The room was disappointing: No... More
