This is not what you expect for $300.00+ per night, and not in a good way.

Review of Barclay On View
2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 May 2024via mobile
This is not what you expect for $300.00+ per night, and not in a good way.

The room is small, dark, and the fittings tired, the bedside tables were covered in something sticky and we had to clean them, among other things. A single bed takes up any room you may have had for your bags. All there is to “relax” in and watch some TV are three hard chairs next to a small table, other than that you have to lie on the bed. The bed at least was comfortable.
The shower head had only two spots it would stay in, straight down from on high, or slightly leaning into the wall down low. The soap container in the shower was empty and the shower base leaked around the base across the bathroom floor. The fittings in the bathroom were at the extreme budget end, the grout around the basin was peeling off, there is no bathroom heating and the shower temperature changes erratically on its own.
On the Saturday night a pub down the hill decided to regale us with a driving Doof Doof drum beat until at least 02:00, at 00:30 we got up and put in ear plugs but could still hear it.

The location is good as it’s close to lots of attractions and restaurants, however we would never stay here again.
This was in my opinion a 2.5 to 3 star only room and in no way a $300.00+/night room

Excellent location very close to Bendigo Art Gallery and restaurants.
Room was spacious, clean and comfortable with the added bonus of table/chairs on the veranda outside your room. Friendly, helpful staff. Tasty breakfast menu provided plenty of choice. Freshly prepared to order. Will definitely consider returning again.

The room was very spacious and very clean. The heating/cooling is really good. Location is perfect in Bendigo with lots of cafe and restaurant closed by. Very easy checking in with a code sent as a text to access the room. Easy car park too....

Friendly and helpful staff.
Crockery, cutlery, toaster and jug all provided.
Keyless entry is convenient.

Nice quiet hotel in convenient location. It was good to have access to a toaster for quick breakfast before an early exit in the morning. Stair treads to upper floors need a little maintenance. Table and chairs on the balcony outside the room are a nice touch and great for enjoying a drink in the evening.
