We stayed for one night & found it good quality for the price. Over our long weekend we stayed in 3 different motels all at the same rate of $100 per night & this one was the best quality. Slept really well, heating worked well, neat & tidy & well presented. The hot water took a while to come through... More

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!

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
