“Very good location”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Small but adequate room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very good location for the art gallery and city centre. Good shower. Chairs and table outside on communal balcony on 1st floor. If you have heavy luggage, ask for a ground floor room because there is no lift.

Room Tip: No lift up to the 1st floor

Hi,
Thank you for your feedback.
Your advice on requesting ground floor rooms, if necessary, is very valid - we encourage guests to do the same. Glad you enjoyed your stay!

I was very impressed by this motel. At a reasonable price, I was pleasantly surprised by good comfortable beds, excellent shower. great location. Friendly staff, quiet even though in the middle of town. All in all would recommend as great value for money. Just near the Art Gallery and lots of restaurants.

I have stayed a few times now and the rooms have always been spotlessly clean, and nicely furnished. Dean & Sarah are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. I strongly recommend staying at the Barclay it is a great location - close to the city and also convenient if you are attending medical appointments, which we were... I was worried about traffic noise but we did not hear any traffic. Thank you I will be staying there again!

Barclay on View is a good value motel located a very short walk from The Capital. The staff are great - I became unwell and they didn't hesitate to let me check in at 12:30, provide Panadol etc. The rooms are on the small side but clean and functional. Breakfast was good. Parking was right outside my room. A good place to stay.

A weekend stop at the Barclay On View Motor Inn revealed that it is under fairly new management.

Location is excellent. It's a standard motel probably 30 or 40 years old and a little tired in places but quite acceptable for an overnight or weekend stop.

The bed was hard; something that might not appeal to all travellers.

There is a limited wifi available; I was advised to try sitting on the balcony outside the room and see how I went! For the limited time I needed to use the internt, I chose my normal 3G provider rather than sit outside.

Being a weekend stay, I was concerned to return on the second day to find that the toilet had not been cleaned, the basin had not been wiped and rubbish bins not emptied. A wine glass used the previous evening was left where it was, still dirty.

It may be a case of weekend cost cutting but failure to clean the lavatory would appear to be inexcusable.

The management seemed keen to build the business and one would trust that their attention to detail, particularly with the lavatories, should improve, sooner rather than later.

Room Tip: If seeking to use wifi you need to advise management and even then you need to be prepared to sit ou...

As new management, we appreciate all feedback, both positive and constructive, so thank you for your honest response.
Firstly, we would like to sincerely apologise for your room not being serviced on the second day. I assure you this was an honest mistake by the cleaners and definitely not a matter of cost-cutting. As you can see from other guests' comments, our cleaners pride themselves on the cleanliness of our rooms.
The existing WiFi infrastructure is being upgraded in April, so there will no longer be a need for some of the rooms to sit on their balcony to receive a stronger signal, and the improved service will still be offered free of charge.
Again, thank you for your honest feedback and we hope you'll return to the Barclay to see the progress of the (long list of) improvements we have planned.

Stayed here for a week. The owners are very welcoming and I enjoyed the time here. Also found the location very good and loved the town of Bendigo.

The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable and we had everything we needed.

I stayed at Barclay on View on a business trip recently and I was very impressed with the accommodation. The location was fantastic, situated very close to some amazing restaurants, the bed was comfortable, the room was well equipped with everything you need and the room and the bathroom were impeccably clean. Thanks for making my stay so comfortable. I will be recommending Barclay on View to my work colleagues and I will most certainly stay with you again.
