“Barkerville Areas Best Motel”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Spent 2 great days at the Barkerville Historic Site, and stayed at a fantastic Motel in Wells, which was an easy 5 minute drive to Barkerville. The hosts Dianne & Harald were most accomadating and made sure our stay was perfect. From Diannes fabulous home made cookies, tartar sauce & Prawn Dip to Harald's awesome Halibut & Prawns, there is no better. The room was super clean and very comfortable and made for an excellent stay. Will definitely stay here again and recommend anybody travelling this way should stay here.

Great room, very very clean and comfortable. The owners are amazing. Truly concerned about your stay. Super friendly and sincere. The best fish and chip truck and homemade chocolate chip cookies in the office. A smile all the time, they make you feel very welcome.

Wow....great people, great service and great cookies. And if the fish and chips are going your trip here will be complete!!! Big H fish and chips are the BEST!!! The motel has been slowly upgraded over the years that I have been coming here, big TV's dvd players and a great dvd library. Good quality pillow top beds and spacious rooms with a fridge , microwave and coffee making in all the rooms that I have been in. A good selection of games to play if you cannot bear to spend another minute out in Barkerville, or go looking for bear or cariboo or moose, or just go for a drive out to the Bowron Lakes. Oh yes and did I say GREAT PEOPLE? Thanks Diane and Harald

When you walk into this motel, your first impression will be average. Shortly afterwards the impressions move up the scale that make this motel a place that you want to return to. The first thing to notice was upon sitting down on the bed and you find yourself melting into the mattress. The substantial pillows certainly quickly add to the comfort. The washroom is certainly acceptable and again, you soon realize that the towels and facecloths quickly exceed the normal expectations. It took awhile before I realized that the room also included a fake fireplace that added to the ambiance of the room. The next plus for Hubs was the inclusion of a DVD player. While you probably are not in Wells for the hotel/motel experience, the fact that there are only two channels makes the DVD a nice feature. What sets this apart again from the normal is the inclusion in the office, of free DVD borrowing, and not just one or two to choose from, but a well-varied selection of probably close to 500 titles. Saving the best till last, how can you not love Dianne, the manager/owner? When was the last time you met someone in a motel who cared as much about her guests as does Dianne. It was an absolute pleasure to spend 3 nights while there to visit Barkerville.

Sue and I passed thru wells last August/2013. Thanks to Dianne and Harald for such a great lunch. It is good to see the Heart and Sole put in your restaurant. Anyone that is passing thru Wells should stop in for a 5 star seafood meal. We happened to be there on Prawn day!
Halibut,Lingcod and Prawns.(all bc caught products). Outstanding!!!!
We were not staying in the hotel, as we were camping at Bowron, But what I see, the care and prepping in the roadside fish and chip restaurant also tells me the hotel is a well run and meticulous getaway destination spot!

Thanks Dianne and Harald.

Maybe will see everyone on DAVE DAY
