My husband & I stayed one night! We only needed a place to sleep, so Barkley Inn was perfect for us. Very reasonably priced with a basic breakfast included. Tea, coffee, cereal & toast. Room was clean, big enough! Off street parking which is great! Staff were very friendly!

Upon arrival the staff members were very helpful and only to happy to assist. The price and rooms were excellent. At breakfast the staff members were only to willing to cater to our needs. A very nice hidden gem. The motel was kept very tidy even the car park was blown down. I would recommend The Barkley to anybody who... More

We stay here while driving up the east coast, we hadn't booked so it was on speck. Our room was ok had all we needed for one night although it could have been a little bit cleaner. The breakfast which was included consisted of stale cereal, not very nice juice the only thing edible was toast.

I was travelling the coastal roads with no destination in mind but the night began to tug at my eye lids and I knew that sleep would take me soon. I looked this place up on trip advisor while I stopped for a pie and decided this was the place to call it the night. It sat comfortably with my... More

I chose this place as it was just a stop over during a long trip. The staff member at reception was terrific, very helpful. The room while clean enough had a strong smoke smell, this dissipated after some airing. We found the bed to be old and uncomfortable and made the next day very long indeed. It is close to... More

A pleasant surprise. I've stayed there twice now, the second time because the first was a good experience. The receptionists warm welcome is just the beginning. The hotel is on The Lakes Way, aka Head Street, but in town. Very close to the main towns cafes and shops, even within walking distance to the bowling club. The rooms are average... More

When we entered the room the first thing we noticed was toe nails on the carpet at the end of the bed, we got the room vacuumed again and problem solved. There was also a huge spa in the room but it had been disconnected, a little disappointing but the room was not advertised as having a spa so it... More
