This property has certainly seen better days, very tired and desperately in need for some care. Whilst the staff were very pleasant and inviting, got to say the room was just average. We stayed for 2 nights on the way to Adelaide and perhaps should have spent more research time. Fortunately we stayed on a weekend so there was no...

Hosts Sarah and Dean could not have been more friendly or helpful before, during and after our stay. Our tour group consisted of 33 gymnasts and parents, and we were given excellent assistance. Sarah and Dean accommodated every one of our needs, and we will definitely stay at Barclay on View again when we go to Bendigo. Thanks Sarah and...

We travelled from out of area and wanted a hotel in walking distance to the Queen Elizabeth Oval as we were attending the football grand final. Barclay on View was in a perfect location and the accommodation was perfect for our needs.

Hi Scarlett, Thank you so much for your lovely review! We think our Two Bedroom Townhouse is pretty special too. I'm very sorry about the BBQ. We will make sure this doesn't happen again. We're very pleased you enjoyed your stay. We'd love to have you back any time!

This motel is located well in the town. It is a bit tired: more suited to the seventies?. The continental breakfast was average. The décor average and the exhaust in the bathroom was very noisy. The service offered was excellent, as was the parking.

We're sorry you felt that breakfast wasn't up to scratch. We think pre-purchasing a continental breakfast that includes cereal, toast and a hot/cold drink for $10 (for two people) is pretty good value. We're about to start another round of renovations throughout the motel and can't wait to see the results.

Good location, easy to walk into main part of town. Standard motel, expensive for what is essentially a budget motel. Looks awful from outside, two story basic motel, but inside my standard queen room was clean and simple, the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom dated. Staff friendly enough. Would have liked a safe. There is better quality/value in Bendigo.

Great location for Bendigo Writers Festival. Close to venues, great cafes and galleries. For this year's Festival weekend, I had a much better experience at Barclay on View. I got the wifi password at check-in and the bed was so comfortable with light but warm covers.

Recently had a 1 night stay at the Barclay on View to go to a Gallery opening, the location of the hotel is right near Bendigo's arts district and also only a 5-10 minute walk to the Mall, so a great location.

Barclay On View has added a new two bedroom townhouse to its motel accommodation. I stumbled onto this new listing as all other accommodation in Bendigo was booked out over the weekend of the Australian Sheep and Wool Show. And now I will let my secret out. The accommodation was excellent for me as I was doing community engagement work...
