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

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
