Beds were 3/4 size but very comfortable. The room was spotless. And the newly-renovated bathroom was a real treat with a walk-in shower with bench seat, a night light as part of the hairdryer attached to the wall, and space to place a toiletry or cosmetic bag. Not needing the air conditioner, we were happy to find that the window... More

We stayed here for an overnight stay. Was so much fun! The room was newly renovated with a brand new bathroom. Spotlessly clean room! The casino is small but wasn't to busy so we played in there for a while. The restaurant is really nice with good food, mostly all made fresh there. I would stay there again without a... More

Laurie, what a great review. The new bathrooms are not in all the rooms yet but we will be doing more rooms this winter. We have an amazing housekeeping staff that take pride in their work so they will be happy to know it doesn't go unnoticed. Thank you for staying with us. More

I loved my stay at this boutique style hotel that looks like a paddle steamer. We stayed in the theme room called the washroom. It was beautiful with the antiques. The bed was very comfortable and we had ample room. It has a modern bathroom and amenities. The room was clean. Free internet, with Air conditioning in the room and... More

Hi Martine; Thank you for the nice review. I am not sure which room you had but I am wondering if it had an antique ironing board? I haven't heard of any of the guest rooms referred to as the "washroom" but I am happy that you enjoyed your stay. I hope you will visit us again. More

One block off main drag in Quesnel (pronounced Quen'Nell). Cute exterior. Dirt parking lot in back (with chuck holes, punji stick- no kidding, puddles). Interior door leads to small (maybe 50) slot machines (pennies, 2 cents, 35 cents, etc), tiny check in desk, then elevator and adjacent to that is bar, then through bar (and around outside) was 2 restrooms...

Thank you for your review. You unfortunately visited us at a time of construction as the city crews are busy replacing sidewalks around the hotel.

Room was clean and checked daily during our three-night stay. My only complaint relates to the inadequate bathroom exhaust system. When showering the mirror steams badly and does not clear unless the bathroom door is opened, which could be a privacy problem for some people. Staff was friendly and helpful. Each room has a heating/air conditioning unit, which provides individual... More

Thank you for taking time to review your stay. I have passed your concerns about the exhaust system onto property management. The bathrooms are all on a central control system so they draw at a constant rate but we will be looking at the air volume controls. I apologize for any inconvenience the air flow issue may have caused. More

I stayed at the Billy Barker during one of my work bonspiels. We had the entire 3rd floor to ourselves and it was a very pleasant experience. I had the luck of getting a room without a key card entry, the door still used a key with lock. The only downside was that I was told I would have to... More

Thank you for taking time to review the hotel. It is unfortunate that you were in the one room that is waiting for a entry system replacement. This is a temporary issue for that room only. Seventeen of our guest rooms have brand new bathrooms that have new hairdryers and make up mirrors as well as all new fixtures. I... More

Billy Barker is a great place to stay in Quesnel. Beautiful building with fascinating history, nicely kept rooms, comfortable beds and wonderful service. Love the history woven through the facility. Didn't get a chance to visit the casino this trip. Thank you for a good night's sleep.
