    Freshly decorated so items and carpet clean. Close to amenities and city centre

    We asked to be given an 'off the street' room as wanted a quiet night. No trouble and the staff were obliging.....not to say that the 'on the street' room was noisy....as it had double glazing (we didnt want to take the risk)

  • Single
    6.6

    Rooms 17-21 are about 3M from a main road which is also a main truck route. If you like being woken up around 4.30AM then it's fine! These rooms need double glazing to block out the noise - otherwise mostly OK except for the bed which was past its use by date. Restaurant meals are very good and also well priced.

    Clean,friendly, helpful staff, near t where I needed to go.

    More care taken by room staff as I had to ask for soap.

  • Group of friends

    It was too noisy, there was a group of girls basketballers staying on the same floor as myself, for 2 nights they were running up and down the hallway, yelling at each other and whatever else they were doing, the 1st night I could not sleep until 2.45am the next morning, the second night they made a lot of rowdy noises coming back to the motel at 5.30am, so I was not impressed, and neither were my friends. I don't think we (my friends and I), will be coming back to this place as there were 4 rooms booked for the 3 nights.

    The wonderful service and beautiful room and lovely food.

  • Older travelers

    Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was extremely comfortable, and the meals were delicious.

    The lavatory was difficult to access due to the spa bath taking up a lot of room. Also, with no curtain or screen on the shower, the floor got very wet.

  • Single

    Location, hot toast for breakfast - you don't often get it in Hotels, so it was very much appreciated.

    When I was booking in and I was by myself the man on reception said he would change my room and I ended up with a Double Bed obviously instead of Queen (friends have stayed there before). I thought this room may have been cheaper, however, it cost me exactly the same as if I was in a Queen Room. I was not on a pleasure trip I was putting my mother into high care in an Aged Care Facility and I wasn't in the mood for discussion, so I just paid my bill and left, I just felt disappointed that I would have to discuss but certainly not worth a complaint, just something they should keep in mind for future solo travellers.

    This is the third time i have stayed at the Barkly and i have always felt the staff have been very courtious and a place that i have felt safe as all instances i have been travelling with a young person with special needs and am usually exhausted when i book in .

    The room was clean and tidy, and spacious. Wi fi access. Great breakfast severed to you room.

    I would nice to have Wi-fi instructions in the room rather than contacting the desk. Unfortunately the person in the room next door continued to smoking with the door open despite having notified the hotel staff. I prefer a non smoking hotel to enforce this.

    It's a low-key hotel, but the staff are efficient and friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with mini bar. It's a short 5 minute walk to the town centre, but not much there! Visit the Wildlife Park where the 'roos are wandering free all around you.

    The room was large and very quiet. It also had a fridge with a mini bar, although not extensive, snacks and drinks that were good. It was a short walk to some of the shops and a longer one to the main shopping area. It was also a reasonable driving distance to Sovereign Hill.

    The mini bar did not include any wine, only beer. A choice of a local white would have been nice. All rooms are on the first floor with no lift and as I have arthritis in my knees it made coming and going more painful for me. It had air conditioning but I think an overhead fan would save energy and be quite adequate, especially for overnight on those very hot nights.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    It was very central. The room was clean. The heater/air conditioner worked great. Staff were friendly. The rooms were a credit to the cleaners. Enjoyed our stay well done.

    The shower was above a bath. Might be a struggle for an older person. Maybe a toaster and microwave would be handy.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Central location.

    Extremely noisy neighbours in Room 8 who kept us awake half the night. Seems to have paper thin walls as we could hear everything they were talking about.

  • Older travelers
    9.4

    Convenience of having a restaurant on site, staff very friendly, courteous and helpful

    Rooms facing strreet were very noisy as it si a main road, however it was no problem to have our room changed for a quiter positon.
