Best Western Plus Barclay Hotel
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Port Alberni
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 23, 2006

We booked this hotel on the basis that most of the accomodation in Vancouver Island is of the self catering/holiday camp variety and therefore uneconomical for couples- also for its cental location.

I found plenty of parking space, helpful and courteous desk staff and a bright,spacious room with good views over the mountains. We only used the restauarant for breakfast and the bar not at all but the facilities were there if required. The breakfasts were tasty with generous portions and I had a decent light meal from room service although it was a little slow in arriving.

Port Alberni is small town and there are shops and restataurants within a few minutes walk and a liqor store next door to the hotel if you lack the energy to go to the bar. Overall the Barclay is one a few full amenity hotels in the central Vancouver Island area and there is lots to see and do in the region.

I would recommend it as a base to expolore that part of the island.

The Best Western Barclay is just finishing a serious updating. Everything was fresh and clean. The sports bar has good food and reasonably priced drinks. The resturant has an exceptional Sunday Brunch Buffet.

After staying at the Barclay Hotel for a march Hockey Tounament I would highly recomend this facility!! The staff and managment go out of their way to make your stay a pleaseant one!

A Case in point was when coming back from a late game with a team of youths the kitchen was closed the staff invited us to use their dining facilites, the waitress brought us menu's for chinese food, pizza's etc from restruants in the area, and invited the team to make use of their dinning facilites to eat the food we had delivered!! Just a small example of how the staff went out of their way to ensure that we had a great stay!! The manager also made available a room for our equipment so that we did not have to sleep with the aroma of sweaty equipment!!
